To conclude, the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 18 has continued successfully surprised us with another new level of design creativity.
I quite like Cactus Girl. For one thing, I have a soft spot for unorthodox minifigure designs and Cactus Girl is right up there in terms of costumed minifigures that I never thought would exist. The entire design is great, with a lot of love and care being given by the designers. This is one I'm amassing multiples of, just in case I ever need to create a Desert Diorama filled with minifigures. As an added bonus, Cactus Girl also goes tremendously well with the Cowboy Costume Guy!
I think this figure is okay. She looks cute enough but has relatively limited reusability and no accessories.
For me, my favorites of Series 18 are the Party Clown, Dragon Suit Guy, Birthday Cake Guy, Race Car Guy, and Cowboy Costume Guy. The LEGO Brick Suit costumes are interesting and I do like how they are able to connect to other bricks.
With each new series of LEGO Minifigures, the LEGO Design Team seem to outdo themselves and you would expect them to have run out of ideas, but they have come out swinging for the 40th anniversary of the Minifigure. The new elements are great and it will be interesting to see where they appear next. The additional of an orange baseplate is definitely welcomed although it would of been nice to have the LEGO Minifigures 40th anniversary logo printed on it or even included in a tile. Despite a few minor gripes, this series of LEGO Minifigures is a fitting and fun way to celebrate the 40th anniversary and it's always nice to have a non-licensed series after so many recent ones being based on movies.
The Cactus Girl also features a secondary face. In her case, it sort of looks like she got pricked by her own needles! I found the Cactus Girl to be super easy to feel for (honestly, this entire series of figures is one of the easiest to feel for since I'v been buying blind packs). For her, just look for a long slender body/costume piece and make sure it has bumps on it (otherwise you have the fireworks guy in your hand).
Series 18 isn't the first series to feature costumed characters. That began with Series 3's Gorilla Suit Guy, who is arguably the first “minifigure in a costume.” Throughout the CMF's history, the costumed characters have been among the most popular, especially with kids, and this series finally indulges costume fans by putting nearly all of its characters in some sort of suit. In keeping with the festive style, this is also the first regular series to use non-black minifigure stands, featuring orange unprinted stands with all of the characters.
I love many of the accessories and head pieces included with this series, but my favourite would be the tile that comes with the young boy: it is printed with as small a representation as you could come up with to be a representation of the packet that the series one figures appeared in years ago. Also up there would have to be the balloon animals. As for my favourite figures? it is a toss up for me between the cowboy, the dragon and the two figures dressed up as LEGO Bricks!
I absolutely love the quirky costume worn by the Cactus Girl, not only due to the unusual nature of the subject matter but also because the green colour scheme really stands out among other Collectable Minifigures. A large cylindrical component forms the trunk of the cactus and this is moulded with a series of little spines as well as a ribbed texture, much like that of many real cacti.
In our opinion the LEGO Minifigures Series 18 collection is the best that's been released and we're sure many of our readers will agree. With so many unique minifigures and a costume party vibe, they will be fun to play with and display.
