It s safe to say these are a succes,
they don t last much on the shelves in my region [quebec, canada]
it s best to pick as much as you can if you ever get to see some early...
that is why I picked that much on my first pick,
I come to a range of about 98% accuracy,
by feeling and analysis of the content.
some of you that know me, know I only use classic yellow,
but, I consider myself a cartoonist, movie maker [hopefully, lol]
so, I take the time to comment this issue.
even though it would be a financial disaster for me,
I d wish lego stops producing yellow altoghether...
because, it is alienating to have both,
or, they will bankrupt us with a peachy fig collection...lol!
I d really wish for a standard, peachy looks more cartoony,
and gives better results when using yellow.
WHY DON T I USE IT THEN?
this post tells you why...
it is cheaper, and with the fig collection, and vintages...
it also makes good sense,
please...express yourselves, tell me what you think!
ok, for the collection choices now.
I picked pretty much what I wanted, but, you have to consider conditions...
I was on break at work, I had just about 15 mins max to get those...
and was on time back, lol! that spices a day does nt it? lol.
so, let s spice it more...I had to get assistance for 2x more helm s deep castles kits,
they re on special, I save $80 for 2, so they told me 3 where in stock,
I WANT THEM!
I told them, to get them, but, they did nt find them...*^+_
I had bought 2 already, and trust me, it s a great kit,
the parts are very polyvalent, castle, city, space, no prob with these!
we ll see...
ok, so my first priority is Cybercity,
I was ready to kill for a judge, lol, I got 2,
I could nt wait for a waiter, WAITER!
I want more girls, love em! xoxoxox!
the plumber is mostly for his toilet prop, [great jokes]
the rest are for meedass
although I still would have picked the mermaid without meedass.
dr jeckyl is a cool monster, his prop too,
the chicken is my mistake, I did nt want him at all,
but, it s sure to be funny once I think about it.
all hail meedass!
ALL HAIL MEEDASS! MEEEEEEDAAAAAAASSS!
lol, yeah these are for meedass.
maybe more to come, if they phone me, and I wake up...
work and this is tough on my sleep,
I might be funnier even, lol.
I figured you d be curious about how I d use and cyberize them! lol.
first, the judge hair looks good on another time period fig.
then, I used my judge s face on this coll judge.
now, I have a 2nd waiter at the hotel s resto.
I changed the girls s hairs with others.
removed the emperor s face and added a dark red cape. [helm s deep]
the fortune teller is an elf,
removed face and changed hair of the mermaid,
changed hat to mr hyde
the judge became a plumber,
and there is a new rich guy,
for some reason, I found it funny to put a demon face to the chicken.
some new medieval figs...
and meedass just won t let the cyclops have the 2nd gold oscar, OFF WITH THE HEAD!!!
the new hair for girls...
and the legendary...black knight!!! lol!
a true legend, no?
WHERE I M AT NOW...
meedass s village is re-designed and ready for shoot.
the NINJA CHALLENGE s start grid is ready to race, I will take the pics tonight.
the hotel is getting a big facelift, starting this week.
Quoting El Barto !
thanks el barto, the best price is wal mart, but, I have a few more expensive places where I can get a decent choice, small shops and toys r us keep them longer because of price, when I m desperate, I go there.
Quebec is pretty sparse in the toy department. There's almost nothing in Montreal, at least as far as I've seen, even in the big department stores. You should just go down to VT, the ToysRUs in Williston is loaded with figs.
Yellow does seem to be the cheapest colour to buy up, and hence my neat collection of it and classic castles also. Long live the yellow Lego brick! And my friend GAIA is always ready for new story tellers to expand its horizons. Perhaps try and steer clear of any of the main characters or planets or ships others use and you can hardly go wrong :)
Hehe i've got a nice little selection of series 9 figs now too.. I just still need to find the senator :-D I left a reply to your comment on my work page :-)
I like it

Hello cyberfrank! Nice collection!
But I want to let you know something. I'm gonna delete my account. I'll stay building, but not on the internet anymore. Maybe on my flickr, but not on Mocpages. I've had a nice time with you guys! I will thank you for all the nice buildings and projects. I'll delete my account tomorrow, so I can read some of the comments. It was a hard decision to make, but I'm not building enough to keep my account. Thanks guys!
Hehe, nice harvest! I am looking for the waiter, caesar and the judge myself. About the color of fig heads: Personally, i prefer the original yellow head. Mostly due to the abundance of different faces but also because it seems 'classic' :-D My test race is uploaded by the way. It is on my work page :-)
A common misunderstanding... I am from Austria, but I do not live there. Remember when I said I was there? Well, I was on holiday there... I actually live in the Asian country of Vietnam.... They might be available. Will go to stores next week, they usually arrive much later in Asia.
