    Dear Brickset,

    Take a good long look at the Zombie Cheerleader, because it's going to be a while before you get hold of one.

    This is really the first series I am tempted to buy an entire box, except
    a) I'm not sure where to buy an entire box
    b) I'm not convinced  yet that I want that many minifigs

    eBay seller minifiguresplus always sells boxes and they're right at retail prices.  Great sellers if you want boxes. ;)

    I like to think someone from TLG dropped by my Flickr and felt inspired :)

    Is the Banshee's hair translucent?? It kinda looks that way when you look at the high resolution picture. Kinda like those visors that aren't completely clear (I forget the term, trans-something). Would that be a first for a hairpiece if it is?? I'm getting way too excited about this lol 
  • tratclifftratcliff Member Posts: 13
    @LukeSkywalker from the this and the leak photos it looks like trans-black.

    What is the difference between a Banshee and a ghost? Not Halo
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,552
    A banshee is a spirit that appears, crying, to warn of an imminent death. not sure if the banshee used to be a living human.

    I'm pumped!  These look great.  Has anyone ever purchased a sealed box of CMFs from the Lego Store?
  • HokieJoe99HokieJoe99 Member Posts: 351
    This looks like it may be one of the easier series to feel for.  There are 5 different types of legs alone.  Also, the accessories seem to be fairly uniquely shaped to help unlike the Simpsons for example where every pack it seemed like you were feeling a 2x2 tile.

    ^ That's a good point, I will be buying about half for these which is crazy when I don't line the theme so I guess they did a good job with these figures.

    I never thought being easy to feel for was a bad thing, as I've had too many frustrations with past series. 
    What?  Being easy to feel for is an incredibly good thing.  I have no desire to spend $4 on any figs except the exact ones I want.

    The only problem I have with being too easy to feel for, is they will be picked clean before I get to them...

    But yes, that would be lovely to have them easy to feel for and in plentiful supply.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 14,282
    I hope they even out the figures in a case.  Bothers me when they arbitrarily create a shortage.

    I have never seen anything picked clean myself, unless you're talking about trying to get multiples.  Even as recently as last week I saw a batch of S13's and found a Hot Dog Guy (the most sought after and easy to find in that series) right away.

    Plus, now that they (hopefully permanently) stopped with the ridiculous "2 per case" rarity level figs, that will definitely help people to find the fig they want actually in stock.

    They will not, they have rarity, which I find a bit annoying when usually the sought after figures (before release and knowing what the rarity is) turn out to be rares designated by LEGO. The problem with LEGO (besides the Rarity IMO) is that they usually make most of the female figures rare or uncommon. This tends to make more of cherry picking the boxes at stores for the rares and leaving the rest, which is a bit annoying IMO, especially when figures are now 3.99 USD per pack. My guess is the spirits are rare along with the Zombie businessman and cheerleader, the Zombie pirate will likely be uncommon or even common.

    I predict Tiger Girl, Fly and maybe the banshee or plant guy are 3 to a case. Just a guess though.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 14,282
    If I had to choose, make the Frankenstein more rare, because they have four variations already.

    I want an entire box so I could pick out an entire set to decorate my Haunted House, then pick out any extras that would be useful in MOC's, then sell the rest.

    Problems:
    1. Can't afford an entire box
    2. No idea how to sell unwanted figures

    Solution:
    1. Give up and cry
    2. Remember that I'm not supposed to buy Lego at the moment anyway
    3. Cry some more

    "Hey, Georg? You know what's a good idea? I don't want as many people to have this minifigure, so let's pack only one per box!" "Oh, yah, good idea, Alf! We should put fifteen of this one in. I like him."

    Sell unwanted minifigures on Bricklink or eBay, or you could try selling them on the forum.

    The series 14 Collectible Minifigures will be available on the 17th. in German brand store as well as shop at home, usually this should mean that they will be available throughout Europe. So less then a fortnight....

    Do you guys not use "fortnight" in the States? It's very commonly used here in the UK.

    Yup I think so.  I think it means to dash about in a haphazard, uncontrolled way.  Kind of like "harum scarum"  :-)

    Always something new to Google here on Brickset forum. Had to look up the definition of fortnight and who the Famous Five was. According to Wickipedia, the Famous Five books  are one of the biggest selling series for children ever written and there are 21 novels. I have never heard of them despite them being so popular.
  • bendybadgerbendybadger 127.0.0.1 ::1Member Posts: 1,141
    That's because the famous five are quintessentially British. I was surprised that Americans do not use the term fortnight though as it is quite common in the UK. I have never herd the term pell mell but will try and use that today as I kinda quite like the words. 
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,942
    Americans don't say fortnight? How do you say "two weeks"? :-O

    Yes I'm not surprised you aren't familiar with the Famous Five books. They are so very British. They are pretty old now but have a great innocent charm, full of implausible adventures and lashings of ginger beer.  
     
    I was trying to think of an equivalent,  like you guys have Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys who solve mysteries but actually the closest analogy is maybe The Scooby Gang! In the Famous Five books there is always a rational explanation for the mysteries,  never a supernatural one.  No monsters.  Which kind of brings me back on topic  :)

    Americans utilize very simplistic diction that is straight forward and easily perceived. Those who are actually blessed with literary skills stand out and make those who do not have good diction look somewhat silly. Then the dumb one turns John Wayne cowboy on you and there you go all Americans are gun slinging imbeciles. Lol that last part was just for fun. My friend from Australia came to Florida last month and the first thing he said was 'I thought there would be more cowboy hats.'
  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu AustraliaMember Posts: 2,318
    @BACbrix, stereo-types, fun stuff... I am not saying all Americans, but many of them over the years, on sites like Chat City, Yahoo Chat, etc, seemed to believe some seriously messed up stuff: We had like two cities full-stop (Sydney & Melbourne), everything else was country towns just like in Crocodile Dundee. We ride Kangaroos everywhere, no cars, no buses... The amount of times I got called a liar & told I wasn't in Australia, because there's only two cities in Australia & neither are called Adelaide.
  • MAGNINOMINISUMBRAMAGNINOMINISUMBRA Member Posts: 993
    Ignore @VorpalRyu and his city envy (Adelaide IS a country town)...

    There are more than 2 cities in Australia? Man, learn something new every day.

    Same here, but I would say my grandparents generation would be much more likely to use it.

    @VorpalRyu - technically I should be answering XXXX (dead giveaway of my location) but let's face it - they only call it that because they're not allowed to print SH#T on the bottle! Don't actually drink beer anymore - much more partial to a nice Scotch...
    And (dragging the thread back on topic), with less than a month to general release - shouldn't we have seen a Whitefang review by now? I'm really intrigued to see the case counts on this series...
