Series 6 minifigs added to LEGO.com

Posted by ,
Surgeon

I read at Toys N Bricks that the Minifigures site at LEGO.com has been updated with images and bios of series 6, so I've wasted no time in adding them here. Check them out and, once again, let us know which you think are the Gladiators and which are the Crash Test Dummies.

There are certainly some nice ones in this batch, I think my favourites are the Genie and Minotaur, while the Skater Girl and Bandit are plain boring...

I love the centurian and the highlander.

I still think the crash test dummy was awesome

As the founding member of the Lego Crash Test Dummy Lovers of America (LCTDLA), I will once again voice umbrage at your characterization of the collectible minifigure so beloved by so many. The Diver was the real loser of Series 1 and everyone knows it.

Oh yeah, and I think all the series 6 figures have some good qualities but obviously the Roman guard will be sought after for army building, similar to the Spartan.

I'm betting on the Mechanic and the Flemenco Dancer being our so called "Crash Test Dummies" ... though the Deep Sea Diver was worse in my opinion.
hmm... Roman = Spartan

Question:
Is LEGO buying out the custom sellers? I've seen a whole lot of near duplicates in these figures from the custom sellers have designed. (e.g. LA Bricks designed the helmet almost 100% like we now see the gladiator helmet. However, LA Bricks designed it first.)

haha... now I look like a copy-cat. Sorry @mikes0000. I submitted 3 min later nearly the same opinion :/

Wow, that came out sooner than expected.

This series doesn't have any really bad ones. I'm interested to see the bandits face, and I love his low hanging belt. Almost everyone has a new hair/hat piece (or at least new color). Besides the obvious roman, I'm excited for the genie, and that new robot head piece. Correct me if I'm wrong, but are the robot and the Minotaur the first CMF not to have regular heads?

P.S. @Mike0000 How do I become a member of LCTDLA? :)

Is it my imagination or is TLG putting new sets and items up on their web site earlier than they used to?

If so, perhaps they're adopting a Hollywood strategy for building anticipation. Tempting you to want something long before you can have it.

Well... it's working!

@mikes0000, I love my diver, as it is the first (and for a loooong time ONLY) CMF I got, but it is truly the real loser of S1, not the Crash Test Dummy.

Anyway, I actually love the bag colors, even though it's kind of plain. My 3 favs. of S6 are: Genie, Statue of Liberty, and Butcher. My 3 least favs. of S6 are: The Bandit (it IS kinda boring), the Flamenco Dancer (I don't know what I was expecting, but I had an image in my mind and the actual fig is disappointing, lol), and the Space Chick (I only like that hairpiece in blond.)

Did anyone else notice that in Bios it said several times about 'Lego Freedom of Imagination' and 'Ability to grant wishes with imagination'? It sounds like Lego is trying to emphasize that 'you can make whatever you want with imagination!'

Over all, I love this series. Good job, Lego!

At first glance, I might be buying many of the surgeon and the robot! Love the transparent-blue xray tile with the surgeon... and the operating room mask too!

My personal guess, though, is that the bandit (due to the shirt graphics) and the robot (because it ROCKS) will be the ones everyone hunts down. Gotta admit, though, I might be stock piling some Intergalactic girls for my nieces. And the genie too... already have some modular build ideas for that jewel piece on the genie's headpiece :)

The Roman is wearing armour almost identical to the set I made aged 7 from cardboard. I think that is a calling.

Overall, the series looks pretty good, but apart from the Roman, and maybe the Genie, none really scream 'Buy me!'. But kudos to TLG, they continue come up with strong designs even after 6 series, with only the odd skater/surfer/snowboarder blip.

Flamenco dancer = Crash Test Dummy

Roman Soldier = Gladiator/elf

Gravatar
By in United States,

Good series overall...hard to pick a 'crash-test dummy'...maybe the Skater Girl(even though I like her skull with pink bow torso graphics) since we've seen too many skaters in my opinion.

The 'gladiator' seems like the Roman Soldier (love the helm and graphics on the shield-fairly accurate)...but it could be the Statue of Liberty (an icon statue made into a mini-fig is a first I believe).

- FLAMINCO DANCER...dress and torso grahics good for variety in custom figs.
- LEPRACHAUN....ahhh, not so great. I thought though he came with a small pot? I remember seeing that in other pics.
- GENIE...looks to be a stand-out fig. Love the leg piece and it fits so well with the genie-bottle.
- ALIEN...love the 'Gray' alien head even though the fig seems a bit plain. New color for the retro laser pistol.
- BANDIT...I love this guy. Black costume, cool graphics(lots of bullets!) and nice dark red mask. Looks cool.
- MINOTAUR...let's build a labyrinth!
- CELTIC WARRIOR....army build. But not crazy about this fig.
- ROMAN SOLDIER...good fig, nice shield, helm and torso graphics. Great for army builds obviously(!), moc's...could be the 'gladiator' fig. in the line.
- LADY LIBERTY...nice to moc an Ellis Island for her, Ghostbuster fans will like this fig...and it would be cool to make her a super-hero and use with the upcoming Marvel and DC line. Any comic fans out there remember Lady Liberty in 'Force of July'...;)
- WIND-UP ROBOT...love him! Reminds me of those tin toy robots from the '50's.
- SLEEPY HEAD KID...nice new Teddy Bear. Wonder if there's a duel face that's normal.
- SURGEON...love the x-ray tile.
- SKATER GIRL...like the graphics but too many skaters. After her, this should be enough already.
- MECHANIC...great for those town city auto shops. Gotta' love the doo-wop hair. New tool box element.
- BUTCHER...love the t-bone and clever.
- ASTRO-GIRL...cute and will definitely appeal to our female collector's out there.

I love the Highlander's accessories and printing, the Alien looks like a Stargate character, and the Centurion also has awesome printing and accessories.

I CAN'T WAIT FOR FOR SERIES 6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in Australia,

LEGO, I'm practically begging you now... please stop trying to bankrupt me with this fantastic stuff? Please?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Can't wait for these!!!!! This might be the best yet. The only one that's not for me is the alien.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, love them!
Roman = Spartan
Not really a crash test dummy but if I had to pick,
Alien = Crash test dummy (the head is kind of non "lego-e-y" to me)

I will KILL for the Romans!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The bandits printing rocks! How can you not like him!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The bandit is one of the best so far!

Gravatar
By in United States,

What site sells these individually? Everyone keeps saying which ones they will get.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, I'm a girl and the space chick is my least favorite of this batch, along with the alien. I can't pick just two as my favorites, so I'm going with the Genie, the Statue, and the surgeon. Or maybe four, including the silver blockhead guy. Although I'm guessing that you guys are all correct -- the big seller will be the Roman soldier. And he DOES have an excellent shield. Well done, LEGO!

Gravatar
By in Australia,

This looks like another good series. I am particularly pleased with the accessories - the mechanic's tool box and the meat cleaver are my favourite bits in this set.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Some real crackers here...... I admit to having CMF fatigue, but the quality is high enough that I'll be grabbing a full set of these anyway.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gotta love the William Wallace mini fig.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is there any way to get certain ones cheap or do you have to buy the little packages and hope you get the one you want?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Fingers will be sore again from all the bag fondling!

Gravatar
By in United States,

And I still need to get series 5!! They all look pretty good. I guess they thought the Space Man was lonely! lol

Gravatar
By in United States,

Whoever thought of putting a genie in there is a GENIEous. Ha ha, do I get points for that one? :-)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The skater girl at least has a nice torso and hairpiece. Favourites are the surgeon, sleepyhead and the butcher. Roman and celt are awesome too. I'm not keen on the minotaur, spacegirl and lady liberty.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I loved the crash test dummy, unfortunately I never did come across one and there's no way I'm paying crazy prices to eBay sellers!
I also disagree with you about the bandit - I think he looks awesome.
To me the duds in this group are the alien and the intergalactic girl.
The ones I am most looking forward to are the Genie and the Statue of Liberty with the robot and surgeon close behind.
I hope they will be as easy to identify by feeling as Series 5 was.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I love the genie. By far the best fig in this series. Also in love with the Minotaur and Roman guy. Lady Liberty looks sweet. Am I the only one who thinks that the robot here is better than the one in Series 1? Surgeon's 'hat' looks a bit un-legoy :P

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Wonder when they'll be for sale? Love the Genie.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I don't normally collect the minifigs, but after seeing the Minotaur and the Butcher.... I might just have to go to eBay and get them..... I think the spacewoman and the dancer are the boring ones out of this lot......

By the way, I know this is off topic, but I was just on the Toys R Us website, and they've got a link selling the Batman and Two Face Superheroes set......
http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12326422&searchURL=false
It says it's not for sale online, but it does say it's available in stores....

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@Trickydicky. People collect/hoard the figures and resell them on eBay and Bricklink. Initially you might pay a high price for them - maybe even double. But, after a few months, any remaining figures get cheaper. There are also guides available to the barcodes, 'spot' codes and even how different figures feel inside the packs. You might get some odd looks from shop staff as you stand there feeling the merchandise, though!

Gravatar
By in United States,

WHY is the Crash dummy considered the worst ever? The crash dummy is actually my facorited of series one. The Skater Girl and bandit Boring? Those are one of the ones I'am looking forward to the most.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Has anyone noticed that every other series one comes out early and the other comes out like the month it was supposed to be released. for example series 3 came out in early december and lasted in stores long. Series 4 came out in April exact and left shortly. Series 5 seemed to come out early and is still in stores in my area. and currently none of my local TRU or targets have series 6.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think TLG is really starting to hit their stride with the CMFs. It's been fun to collect these but the rising prices concern me.

My absolutely "Must Haves": Genie (Gladiator of Set 6) and Clockwork Robot (the key is the best detail)

My other "must haves": Bandit (awesome details), Minotaur (a CMF Medusa would be tremendous), Celtic Warrior (if it had blue face paint it would be in the first category), Roman Soldier (a contubernium of these would be nice but costly), Lady Liberty, Surgeon (never got the nurse but she could hang out with the athletes)

Nice but wouldn't cry if I don't get them: Flamenco Dancer, Leprechaun, Mechanic (love the hair), Butcher (love the cleaver)

Probably won't get: Alien, Sleepyhead (my vote for Crash Test Dummy), Skater Girl (1 skater and 1 surfer were enough), Intergalactic Girl (although the Series 7 Space Commando-type guy looks spectacular)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Multiples desired:

Alien (X-Com Moc's will be MUCH more possible now)
Roman Warrior
Celtic Warrior
Minotaur

Meh 'fig's: (one for the collection is all)

Skater Girl
InterGalactic Girl
Leprechaun

The others are likely to be acquired in the two to four quantity range.

I'm all for having more female 'figs but really, more skaters (or surfers or skateboarders...)? My biggest knock against the leprechaun are the dang stubby legs.....

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The gladiators for me would have to be the new Spartan, genie and Minotaur while the flamenco dancer and and it are the test dummies.

Gravatar
By in Israel,

Spartan of Series 6: Roman Centurion
Diver of Series 6: Skater Girl

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Statue of Liberty, Space Girl, and Genie are some of my favorites here. Really, this series doesn't seem to have the duds like some of the others had. My least favorites are the mechanic and butcher, but I wouldn't say those aren't desirable figs. Luckily, their availability is much greater, so odds are it won't be too hard for people to find the ones they want. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Roman soldier is definitely the Spartan of this series. The flamenco dancer would be the deep sea diver.

The bandit is going to pair up great with the Series 2 cowboy for a good old western showdown. (Currently my cowboy is facing off against the Mariachi man)

The butcher will be set up with the gangster and the mechanic is going with the crash test dummy.

Gravatar
By in Philippines,

Wow this will definitely be a good series set. It has a large collection of female minifigs. Kudos LEGO

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I think this is the best series yet. The only two figures that I don't care about are the skater girl and flamenco dancer.

But where is the Leprechaun's pot of gold?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^I'm pretty sure he has a pot in some other pictures (including the leaked ones from ages ago).

The true spartan/dummy deciding factor will be how many of each they put in the box. Romans are something people have desired for ages so would be nice to see a decent number in each box (unlike the spartan/elf).

The alien and flamenco dancer seem the plainest, and least useful parts-wise. But who would say no to a tonne of aliens?!

Series 5 came and went near me, but still seems to be a lot of series 4 hanging round (I'm guessing shops bought less series 5 after being left with leftover series 4), but mainly kimono girls and footballers.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

It would be odd if each figure came with one or two accessories, but the Leprechaun would come with nothing.

He looks a little lost without his pot of gold.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Without a doubt the Legionnaire is going to be the most popular, but thankfully I don't do popular. The Alien and Skater are my top picks.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Lots of new parts in this series - the accessories are probably the best part for me. Butcher is must-have for the meat cleaver and steak, as is the mechanic for the toolbox and slicked-back quiff hair. Love the toy robot and genie and will want at least one of each fig in this set. Luckily it seems that Lego sorted out appropriate production runs of series 5 as they still have them in my supermarket and a few toy shops I go to, so I hope the same happens for 6 - no rush to get popular ones.

I think the 'diver' in this set (as he was worse than the CTD) is the girl skater. Three skaters in 6 series? Plus 2 snow-boarders and 2 surfers? someone on the design team likes board-sports.

The Spartan/Elf in this set should be the roman legionnaire.

By in Singapore,

Finally, it's now possible to make Brennus, chieftain of the Senones. I want to be able to make a Minifig version of every world leader in the Civilization series.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Elvis hair on the mechanic is cool.

What self respecting ALIEN leaves his ship without an Anal Probe

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think that having two of each sport figs, like the surfers and snowboarders, is nice actually. Also, does anyone else notice that in the official pics, the Leprechaun doesn't have a pot but in the leaked photos we got a few months ago he had a pot o' gold?.....

Gravatar
By in United States,

I love almost all of these figures.

Defiantly gotta have the mechanic. As that is me, except the hair lol

Gravatar
By in United States,

For me, the weak ones are:
Leprechaun - Not many parts there to justify buying more than 1.
Lady Liberty - Again, why buy more than 1?
Clockwork Robot - One would be nice as a novelty, but I can't imagine a use for his parts.

The ones I must have several of:
Surgeon - My Hospital MOC needs some scrubs, x-rays, and surgical masks!
Butcher - Great uniform, hat, cleaver, and steak.
Mechanic - Love that Toolbox! Need some for my firetrucks, construction workers, etc.

Everything else falls in between... some I only want one but wouldn't mind two, others I want two but I'd be okay with one.

It's interesting to see that one person's favorites are another person's losers.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So the packet colour's white. hmmmm, not what I would have guessed or chosen and doesn't look all that appealing to me. Why start using boring colours like white when purple and red haven't been used yet?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

MMM... Series 6 mini-figs, MMM... Day 3 advent calendar (still don't have!!)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

When they come out in stores I will hopefully be able to buy a few... or a lot.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Spacewoman is my favourite, but I hope her arms are the same colour as her torso. Her hair is lovely in blonde, and the helmet is nice in pink.

I also love the flamenco dancer, because of the dress and hair. The surgeon has a nice torso and face, but I hope it's double sided with a non-mask face. The statue will be good for Forest Goddesses or something like that. I like the Skater's hair and torso. I also like the sleepy head guy, he has a nice hairpiece.

Am I the only one who has no interest on the Roman? The bandit's kind of dull too. The Genie is nice, but I'm not a huge fan of the turban decoration, and I like the mechanic's hair but the rest isn't great. Although I don't really like a few, there's no real Divers (notice I never said Crash Test Dummy!) in this series.

I'll try to get all the females I think, but just so I can say I have all the female CMFs. Overall a nice series.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm really worried about how much I'll end up spending on these! On top of 1 of each, I'll want some for my Bricklink Store, an army of romans and an army of highlanders, and multiples of loads of them for parts....

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@LegoCoastGuard: Celtic Warrior, you mea- HANG ON, the name has changed! From "Celtic Warrior" to "Highland Battler"! I think some Scots complained about the name... :P Just like the Maori tribe complained about the names of the original Bionicle characters... :P

EDIT: Another change: The Alien! From "Alien" to "Classic Alien"!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm actually VERY excited for the Bandit, the reason being that I want to stage a Train Robbery using the Emerald Knight, the Bandit (or more than one), and the Cowboy (as the Sheriff).

And I can use the scarf and hat to make a custom minifig of The Shadow!!!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I agree with Dr. Watford. I am suffering from CMF fatigue as well but the quality of series 6 and 7 (in terms of the characters i.e. Celtic Warrior, Genie etc.) means I will be picking up a full set or close to a full set. I haven't made a decision on series 8. I will wait for photos.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I quite like the bandit, looking forward to getting those black pistols.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Spartan/Elf of the series for me is the Minotaur, followed closely by the Alien (finally a proper version of an alien - a Roswellian, not a weird squid thing!). I think the Roman will be the one everyone will be hunting down though.

The Crash Test Dummy of the series is the Flamenco Dancer.

Overall I think it's a great series, and all the figures are pretty cool. The Flamenco Dancer, even though it's probably the worst of this bunch, is still better than the worst of the first few series (Dummy, Diver, Cop, Explorer, etc.).

Gravatar
By in United States,

Has anyone seen these in southern California? I'am dying do get these

Gravatar
By in United States,

I admit these look awesome, but I just can't convince myself to buy them with their lower quality plastic. (It's like that flesh colored skin for licensed themes, it's hard to mix with your collection :/ But I will get some of these as they are fantastic to say the least. And I guess I can swap the CM pieces I have for the ones that aren't special (Swap the CM blue pants for Denmark plastic blue pants) Then at least I get 50% genuine :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, I checked my local TRU today just for fun, and there was no CMF of any series!!!! Weird.... There was however the new 2012 Ninjago and Dino sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This may have been asked already, but what is the official set number?

Series 7 will be red.
