To conclude, the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 18 has continued successfully surprised us with another new level of design creativity.
The Birthday Party Boy ticks all the boxes for me – unique and interesting accessories, a dash of nostalgia and the generic design of the kid make for a wonderful bundle of value. If I were to randomly buy Series 18 blind bags, I would not be disappointed to get a Birthday Party Boy, or even multiples of him for that matter.
I think this minifigure is a good one. He's what I would call perfectly servicable – good overall with little flaws, but not a mindblowing or outstanding one. I like him just as much as the Birthday Party Girl CMF – I prefer the gifts that he brought but I prefer the Birthday Party Girl's hairpiece.
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.
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!
Inside the boy's present is a pair of 1x1 square tiles that are meant to represent the first Collectible Minifigure Series that LEGO produced. That's a kind of cool little Easter egg to throw in, I approve.
The blonde hair piece is brand new, with a swept back style at the front and some additional texture at the rear. It looks superb on this minifigure but is also sufficiently generic that it could be adapted for many different characters of either gender. Hopefully this element will soon appear in a few other colours for even greater versatility.
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.
