Recommendation: meh 4.5 / 5 by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

Overall, The LEGO Movie Collectible Minifigures (71004) is a great addition to the minifigures line. There are a variety of different characters that are all over the place that you can collect from the Panda Guy to the Taco Tuesday Guy to Abraham Lincoln. This set of minifigs also has the most number of female minifigures in a single series with six. Although all the characters are tied into the movie, in theory you could possibly build an army with some of the minifigures such as a construction crew with Emmet and Gail, a panda army to take over the world, or a team of motorcycle cops. There are also a lot of parts and accessories that you can reuse in other themes like the different hairpieces, coonskin cap, and coffee cup. I highly recommend picking them up in preparation for the movie release. Happy hunting!

The LEGO Movie Series has done a remarkable job to introduce more new minifigures designs into this new minifigure theme, even though it is not directly classified under the LEGO Collectable Minifigures category.

I really feel this is over-priced. The "larger" panda was barely an inch tall and the smaller one about 1/2 inch. I realize they need to fit with the lego blocks but $13 was a lot to pay. I was so afraid they'd be lost Christmas morning.

Recommendation: no 6 / 10 by Jay

I've finally figured out the flaw of this minifigure series. The bad guys. In previous minifigures series we've never had any good guys vs bad guys as a theme and only had different characters and personalities. I'm not too sure it works too well for a set with 16 different characters. Having 3 robots is probably a little too much and while I understand that they're integral to the movie's plot, I can't help but wonder if the series would've been a lot more well received if they had a more diversified cast of characters.
