The new LEGO minifigures series has lots of great characters, and a couple who are hit or miss for me. Regardless, any new minifigure is a good thing. After all, even if you don't keep them assembled, their parts can be used to make your own customized figures. I was hoping for the Dog Walker, but I got Bear Costume Guy. He's cute and will probably lead to my LEGO town having a Pride Parade due to his rainbow accessory and coloring. Unless you're willing to pay a lot, these minifigures are sold in bags that provide an element of surprise. It reminds me of opening baseball card packs in the hopes of getting a much-wanted card. Buying these minifigures online removes the option to feel the package in an attempt to guess what figure is inside. However, with toy stores pretty much a thing of the past, there's not that many places in my local area where I can actually buy these. Therefore, I'm very happy that Amazon carries them for a good price.
Series 19 is a nice set with a little something for everyone, and I've been picking them up randomly and letting the figures inspire trips to new or interesting places. The mountain biker has gotten my wife and I out to some new parks, trails, and farmers' markets, and the mummy got me out to a museum with some friends. They're great for inspiring pictures and also mini-builds related to their themes. One little thing, though, is that some of the figures seem short on accessories. I like the mummy, but she doesn't feel like a $5 figure.
The LEGO CMFs Series 19 is a nice traditional CMFs design and it is nice to see a change of pace. Seeing this brand new 16 designs of Series 19, there are 11 City related minifigures including costume fellows, 4 historical/fantasy/mythical minifigures and 1 sci-fiction minifigure. As you can see, this new Series 19 is a city-focused theme. While I am slightly disappointed that minifigures had largely restricted on City landscape, but the new additional designs and new molds are welcoming additions to our ever-growing LEGO collection.
There's a very large cross-section of LEGO fans and Gamers, and this contemporary take on a video game streamer is quite timely, and I'm willing to bet that a lot of gamers will be very happy to have their very own unofficial Jacksepticeye minifigure. Personally, I really like his bright green hairpiece with the gaming headset attached, as well as his shirt which has the logos of some of my favourite vintage themes.
Overall the Series 19 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71025) is another wave that proves why this theme is a successful one year in and year out.
It's good to get another regular, non-themed series of Collectible Minifigures again, spreading across all walks of life. Not every figure in Series 19 is a sure-fire winner in my book (if I weren't reviewing it, I'd never go out of my way to pick up the Firefighter, Bear Costume Guy, or Rugby Player, for instance), but the majority of the characters are figures I want in my collection, some of them multiple times over.
I found the overall tone for the series less coherent than for previous series. I feel every figure is pretty good, and some are downright excellent. The theme or category for the figures is consistent with previous themes. But the accessories are inconsistent.
The colourful Video Game Champ definitely stands out within Series 19, featuring an extraordinary bright green hair piece with a black headset. This component has already appeared in two Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets but looks splendid here and I like the double-sided head as well. The quizzical and cheerful expressions are both satisfying.
Of the first 8 Minifigures from Series 19, the stand out for me is definitely the Monkey King. He looks amazing, has some great detailing especially his cheeky face. The Video Game Champ is a strong second, especially his amazing shirt. The Bounty Hunter is a little disappointing, due to the differing colours but it still looks quite cool.
