So when do these series stop? My wallet is taking a serious beating! :D To me series 1 is the best so far. I'm working on getting series 4 now. I'm behind. ;)

If these were clear packages, and we could see the figures, at least it would give Lego an idea of what's popular. The wanted stuff will fly off the shelf and the ho-hum will stay. In Star Wars collecting we call it "pegwarming" ;)
lol, pegwarming, nice

Now the only ones I'm really interested in for this series are the Gangster and the Victorian Investigator (Sherlock Holmes). Marginally interested in Dwarf, Gladiator and Snowboarder (he doesn't look as 'cool' as the other 'extreme sports' dudes).

The rest... just meh. It's a shame, too, because my CMFs1 Caveman would like a Cavewoman to share those cold cave nights, and at $1.99 it would've been a no-brainer, but $2.99 was really the breaking point for me in terms of "collect 'em all".

If I am not wrong, the upper corner at the left should be Gladiator, right? However, I don't find him looking like a gladiator. I could recognize him by his sword and shield only. His helmet is too bulky. It took me a while to identify this minifig before HD pic is available.

Actually that term is used by action figure collectors accross the board, not just Star Wars.

The Helm is instantly recognizable to me

Remember Lego is still at least slightly commited to the "no modern warfare" priciple. Though how the IJ sets don't violate that, I have no idea.

But Formal Dress uniform could avoid the "combat" aspect.

Because the closest IJ gets to "modern" is the 1950s.

You could make a CMF set on world militaries alone.

If this is the case, the chance to see U.S. Navy SEALs' Team Six in lego minifigure will be zero.

That probably wouldn't be too popular internationally anyways. Now I'd love to have a seal team 6 keychain. Then my keys would really be safe.

Why didn't TLC use red as the theme color for packaging? Is red looking bad for packaging?

The boxers gloves are his actual hands. Interesting. Didn't expect that.

According to the July issue of Game Informer mag. the release date of series 5 is July 20th. Although there is no mention of series 5 in the July calendar or the Lego store.

I think the official date will be the first or more likely the second week of August.

I love the cave woman. She's got a bone on her head for a bow.

I asked the guy at the LEGO Store in Natick MA (It's near Boston) when the series is supposed to come in. He said they said it would be August, but they don't have them in the back, so that's out. Now he is hearing early-mid September.

I really need some Godzilla guys. :lol:
