Sorry! Been away, as I said, "they're starting to show promise?", my reasons for this are.
I did get the full set of series 5,4,3,2 and yes, some are excellent, but some are just recycled figures used in earlier series, "You know the ones I mean?"
But here's the thing, in the last two series sets "Lego" is starting to take note of what kids/adults would like to see, for example the Gladiator, Godzilla, Sherlock Holmes, to name a few, but they'll still adding skate & snow boards etc.
The latest series with the roman guard, looks excellent, the alien, not exactly right, the highlander, no kilt, windup robot (love it!) but the bandit?
I would have suggested Prison escapee, think Harrison ford in handcuffs or Old style robber with crowbar & swag bag rather than this?
One thing I did think about was that the kid with the teddy was probably a toy box theme, and that they could have added a jack in the box, teddybear or dolly version of a min fig, but please, no Barbies or worse ken!!!
Oh! An as I'm Irish, I'm looking forward to the little green guy with open arms
As for the Alien, I for one will be making him an all grey version, and supplying him with a probe not a ray gun?
Other than than, I'm looking forward to seeing what else they come up with?
