Recommendation: yes 9.3 / 10 by WhiteFang

To conclude, the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 6 is another remarkably amazing piece of LEGO products. Seeing the pictures at first is not as exciting as compared with playing with the actual stuff. These minifigures are really incredible and in most cases, have made lots of LEGO collectors, a dream coming true. You can't see much disappointments for me at my end. With a better distribution among the minifigures allocation and providing a maximum of 3 complete sets in a sealed box plus lots of newly designed minifigures that doesn't really made me felt that almost none is made as a filer. In my case, the Roman Solder, Celtic Warrior, Minotaur, Bandits, Lady Liberty, Genie, Sleepyhead and Surgeon are my favourite Series 6 minifigures ever and it will also served as another hard challenge for me and the rest to gather them all.

Recommendation: no 4.1 / 5 from 42 reviews

The typical cost of one of the random minifigures is between three and four dollars, and that's a blind buy since you don't know what you're going to get... so naturally, paying under five bucks for one is a steal. The head is the best part, being a classic grey alien and all. The accessories are great as well - a white space-gun and a small green rod. This is a fantastic offer if you want to collect the individual LEGO Collectible Minifigures.

Overall a simple but effectively done minifigure capturing the essence of the popular image of extra terrestrials. Scores points for being true to its source material and minimalism.
