Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 by Jay

The Monkey King is one of the frontrunners of my favourite minifigures of 2019. The minifig design is just inspired, and LEGO clearly pulled out all the stops in getting this one right, from the accessories to the incredible printing detail. It goes without saying that the Monkey King is top-rated minifigure in Series 19 and no other character even comes close.

Recommendation: meh 8.3 / 10 by WhiteFang

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.

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.

Recommendation: meh by Chris

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.

Recommendation: meh by Richard

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.

Recommendation: meh by CapnRex101

Mythological characters have appeared in past Collectable Minifigures series but the Monkey King represents the first foray into Chinese mythology. This figure takes inspiration from Sun Wukong but combines many interpretations of the character, featuring new headgear which forms his pronounced ears and dark orange fur. The red ribbon fixed to this piece was originally designed for Overwatch but looks lovely here.

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.
