SpongeBob figs added to gallery

Posted by ,

I'm sure this SpongeBob SquarePants gallery will be popular, and I have to confess I have a soft-spot for these figs, even though I've never watched an episode of the cartoon in my life. I guess it's the bright colours and cool character designs that does it...

So, what next: Vikings, collectables, Space Police 3, Atlantis, or should I start on Star Wars?

I say Space Police for the next one as it has some very interesting figures Eg the aliens. However star wars would be very interesting, Hmmm... Oh and I didn't realize that there were that many versions of spongbob

COLLECTABLES!!!!!!........please?...

By in United Kingdom,

Start on Star Wars, that should keep you occupied for several years!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Huw, you've put two doctors on the minifig page? why?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

First, sorry but you put 2 doctors in by mistake, one apparently has no sets on the list. Anyway, I would say start on Star Wars, and maybe do another theme. I would go for Atlantis or Space Police, as SW will take a long time to do. In fact it will take a long, long time ago in a galaxy far away. ;)

Collectables.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Very nice indeed, though one doctor doesn't seem to be in any sets...

Vikings next please!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Awesome update. I vote for Atlantis next.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Collectible minifigs should be next. Might as well get a head start; there will be at least 32 more just this year.

By in United Kingdom,

hey huw can you put up the details for the westflied store grand opening tomorrow please? nice gallery BTW

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Huw: I've just checked on Bricklink and the "Build-A-Bob" set's Plankton is classed as a minifig! Were you aware of that? Anyway, keep up the good work for the minifig galleries!

By in United States,

Vikings! :o)

Gravatar
By in United States,

starwars. please do starwars! :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Vikings! It brought me out of my dark ages. I have the entire collection.

Gravatar
By in Brazil,

I think you should start Star Wars.
Is my favorite licensed theme, and one of the most populars ever.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I vote for Star Wars. Love the Spongebob gallery! I'm in the process of getting some of the older sets I didn't get right now, and I can't wait for the two new sets (and a proper Sandy not in her space uniform).

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just picked up Spongebob and Patrick figures last month, they instantly became the favorites of my kids. Thanks for the pics.

Vikings next, please.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wah?...no Plankton?....;)

I know, I know...he's evil....oh, and Gary and Sharon too....:)

I'd put my vote for Space Police 3. The aliens are great minifigs.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

A proper Star Wars minifig gallery would be awesome! That's what Lego Star Wars fans and the good people of FBTB have been waiting for for years!

So yeah, my vote goes to Star Wars. But if not, a Collectable Minifigure gallery would be nice too. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

i would say sp3 or atlantis next because they have some nice figs and are out at the moment plus star wars will take a REALLY long time

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I really think you should do star wars next! That would be great!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Huw, oh yeah! Never noticed that!

Gravatar
By in United States,

how about a Doctor Who gallery...oh, wait...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Do the small themes next, then they'll be out of the way when you start of Star Wars.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Very good gallery!

There was just a couple of things that I noticed weren't in there- Plankton, the Crabby Patty Robot customer, and the Robo-sponge, all of which appeared in the Chum Bucket set.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Huw I think that other torso on the doctor was made by someone who couldn't find the official one and replaced with the common doctor torso. It's not the official one.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Star Wars!

Gravatar
By in United States,

star wars. no doubt about it

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I would go for Star Wars if you have the time and money, but would be happy with any others you have posted there.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Collectible minifigs, then Star Wars.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Go with Star Wars, though if you don't have the cash or patience, Vikings or SP3.

Gravatar
By in United States,

STAR WARS !!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I vote Vikings! That was one of my favorite themes, and I think it was prematurely discontinued. Who doesn't like full auto LEGO missile firing with VIKINGS!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I vote Vikings. By the way, when are you going to do Power Miners?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I vote Star Wars!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hmm so hard to choose between all the ones you mentioned... all sound interesting. I say go for whatever. We'll be please with whatever you give us. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

VIKINGS! even though I don't own a single set, yet.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Starwars or vikings please, I really like to visit this site and check out the new pictures :-)

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Please do Vikings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Great gallery Huw! You're doing a great job!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I say start on Star Wars. I suggest doing year by year because there are probably twenty versions of Luke and ten of Han and Leia, and all those Stormtroopers. O_o So start with 1999, then 2000, then 2001 and on. I would say make a new addition to Star Wars every other week or so just so that we aren't bombarded with a new addition of really common figures everyone has seen, and then throw in Vikings, Space Police, Atlantis, and collectables, and such in between just for some variety(Even though I love Lego Star Wars.). Eventually you were going to get around to them, why not just start Star Wars and do some multi tasking.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Collectable Minifigures! (sw can wait...)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Collectables, please! it sounds the most interesting. If not then Vikings. SW can totally wait.....

Gravatar
By in United States,

Do star wars and get it out of the way

Gravatar
By in United States,

i would do vikings or space police. dont do Star Wars unless you are SURE you have all he minifigures (which would be epic). good spongebob gallery too. the figs are pretty neat, the sets weerent great, though

Gravatar
By in United States,

You have never seen an episode of SpongeBob??? That's a crime. It's a great show for adults. Thanks for the gallery.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Vikings. Please. I think it is a manageable number of figs and you don't have any Castle/Fantasy figs in your picture database yet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I place my vote for Vikings Huw, please?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I vote you watch one episode of SpongeBob before you take any more pictures!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^MCLegoboy, great minds think alike :-) That is exactly how I will do Star Wars: start at 1999 and work year by year. There are too many to do all at once, and releasing them one year a week or so will maintain your interest over a longer period of time.

Gravatar
By in Greece,

Hmmm what about star wars?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Collectables. Simply because the whole theme is based on minifigures.
Space Police 3 has nice figures too so do that as well.

Gravatar
By in Spain,

Vikings vikings vikings!!!

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Collecteblas or Vikings!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Another great gallery, as usual. I avoided the Sponge Bob sets when they came out, as my son was a little too young and I didn't want him getting into the whole Cartoon Network genre. But the minifig are insanely cute. What to do next ? Everything ! If you are mad enough to attempt Star Wars, then I think you should alternate with other themes: Collectables 1, SW 1999, Vikings, Collectables 2, SW 2000, Atlantis, etc. But you HAVE to do the Collectables with and without accessories. Please !

Gravatar
By in Norway,

Star Wars(Original Trilogy, if you want to split it up) or Collectable Minifigures.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is there a way to "checklist" the galleries like there is a way for sets? A way to mark them as "have"? I only collect city sets but want to collect any and all minifigs but find it hard to keep track of what I have. If there was a way I could go to say "Space" gallery, I could see by the marked picture who I have and need.

Gravatar
By in Indonesia,

STARWARS of course!!! I like most of LEGO character but lately I thinks SW minifigs is the most interesting and very dynamic in style(renewable again and again) :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I would have to say vikings and once you've done all the small gallerys, then do star wars.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

I thought you would take Star Wars first but do it next the plz.

Gravatar
By in Croatia,

Good job on the gallery. I really like the pictures.
Although, I thionk that little bad guy from Sponge Bob (1x1 sand green with printed face in LEGO)
should be included to the gallery to.

For next gallery I would like to see SW since for few years it will be hard to keep track on figs.
I know that there is a lot of figs, but I think that it is better to start with that theme now.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@oldtodd33 - I agree, Huw should watch at least one SpongeBob episode before taking anymore photos, all it takes is one episode to find a love for The Little Sponge.

@mission_zed - SpongeBob is Nickelodeon, but wanting to avoid Cartoon Network (exept Star Wars: The Clone Wars) is a good idea.

The pics are great Huw, thanks again for the effort. As for the next theme I suggest you do either Vikings or Space Police 3 since both are retired and won't be coming out with more in the near future. I can't wait to see the Star Wars theme though...

@Stardusty - The "little bid guy" is Plankton (that's his name and type).

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Huw, great way to put it in order, very logical

Gravatar
By in Croatia,

Plankton, really? That is exactly the same way it's written in Croatian language, but since my english
isn't really good I've just named him 'little bad guy'.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

space police 3

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Stardusty - Lol! Actually his computer wife (Karen) calls him Sheldon, but everyone else calls him Plankton.

Gravatar
By in Philippines,

Feel the Force, sir! There's a lot of star wars figs, and they keep adding more...Catch up with them, we must! Herculean, the task is... but great, the reward is! And please do justice and be kind to the animals (boga, dewback, taun-taun, wampa, etc... :-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would not do star wars for a while unless you do it year by year. Huw-You have too Have too watch at least one episode! Guys Sheldon Is not realy considerd a fig unless its from Build a bob. Karon,Robo sponge,and Rodo custormer should be in the gallery. My vote is Atlantis,But The next option should be POWERMINERS! The collectable figs alredy show h-res imagis of the fig so why do them?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

star wars

Gravatar
By in United States,

Go with the retired themes, they'll be harder to do and only get more costly yearly.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Another great gallery, Huw! Thanks!

I would vote for alternating as you talked about with SW and other themes. The "other theme" that I think you should do first is Vikings.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I vote for Star Wars!

Gravatar
By in United States,

DONT DO STAR WARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I vote for vikings.

Gravatar
By in United States,

At least start to gather the minifigs for Star Wars from Bricklink.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Collectibles! (P.S. are you planning on doing animal galleries? :)

Gravatar
By in Australia,

You know what would be great? To do a gallery when the Cars sets are released. Yeah, I know they're not minifigs, but the character cars nevertheless have very minifig-like appeal, with many fans wanting just one particular car out of a set when they aren't even Cars fans. Which item, other than minifigs, brings out out that kind of desire for just one item from a LEGO set?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Star Wars! Star wars! Star Wars! Start on Star Wars! If not, maybe try Space Police III.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The only thing is SW is still going, and also Spongebob has another 2 upcoming sets whereas the other lists have finished I believe.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Please do Star Wars next! By the way, congrats on the spongebob gallery- it looks great! :)
Please do Star Wars!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The collectible minifigures would be nice.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@MinifigureMan - Vikings and Space Police III are both done (at least for now), but Collectable Minifigures and Atlantis may still be coming out.

Gravatar
By in United States,

get starwars! it's awesome!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'd like collectable minifigures to be next, there isn't very clear photographs of them elsewhere.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Maybe Star Wars as well, there are many photographs that are very blurry for older minifigures. Perhaps you could split between the films since there are so many minifigures from this theme.

Gravatar
By in United States,

If you do start Star Wars, and you do every year week by week, perhaps you can join them together when you're all done.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

i love the spongebob figs there so cartoon like which makes them funny.
