LEGO have nailed the Ice Queen and it's refreshing to see them add in classical Fairy Tale characters into the minifigures mix. The Ice Queen is one of my favourite minifigures in this series, simply because the Ice Queen is such an iconic character and LEGO have done an awesome job capturing the essence of Hans Christian Andersen's creation.
While the Penguin Boy has no special parts or accessories, his overall look is awesome and he is so adorable that I have to give him a high score.
The mystery of opening each bag to see which new minifigure you're getting really ups the collectability factor of these LEGO minifigures. Kids will have fun trading each other for the figures they want and adding these cool and sometimes kooky characters to their LEGO sets. These minifigures have lots of fun details and accessories that make them great for keeping on display if you are a LEGO collector but they are also going to be lots of fun for kids to play with. Each one of these minifigures has a rich backstory just waiting for imaginative kids to tell it.
The more I see this character, the more I find it adorable. I got a hunch feeling that we might just see a female child with short-legs donning on a different animal costume in the future.
So I opened the package and it was not the penguin guy. I added a picture so you could see what it was. I was disappointed but I'm not returning it. I fill my kids advent calendar and I needed another thing to fill one of the doors.
LEGO continues to crank out some amazing minifigures for the Collectible Minifigures theme and Series 16 isn't an exception. There are a number of minifigures that really catch my eye like the Mariachi, Rogue, and Hiker. Of course, who doesn't like the costumed characters like the Banana Guy, Penguin Boy, and the Cute Little Devil. There are also some fairly bland characters for me like the Scallywag Pirate, and the Desert Warrior but they do make good army builders.
Each of the 16 figures is unique, and like previous non-licensed series, the minifigs are from themes as disparate as babysitters to pirates. The color for Series 16 is yellow, and the vibrant banana-suit guy seems to be the mascot for this series.
In the end, this makes for a nice series of minifigures to collect. Although there are a few generic characters, they have enough interesting parts to make them interesting.
For me, the stand out figures include the Hiker, the Wildlife Photographer, the Penguin kid, the Rogue, the Banana Guy, and yes, the Babysitter. Honestly, there aren't many figures that I don't like this time around - perhaps the spy, spooky guy, and the cyborg are the only weak links to an otherwise solid line-up. I don't think this is the best minifigure series ever - but it certainly is solid from top to bottom (which is great for someone who feels the need to collect every figure whether I like them or not)!
