An army of dance instructors, now there's a scary image. Slightly off topic, but I wonder what is the strangest army of collectible figs someone has amassed? I currently seem to be accumulating werewolves (which seem to be one of the 'runts' of series 4) in the hope that I can think of something to do with them.

I would take the Punk Rockers and use them as an army (squad) in Brikwars with little change. :raiseone:

Maybe you could trade them away to one of the Brikwars guys for something more useful for you. :D

That would be cool, I'm going to be getting mostly dwarves, maybe some lumbermen and gangsters.

Hey all,

White Fang of Eurobricks was given an opportunity to do an extensive review of series 5. Hopefully we'll see these in stores quite soon now.

Thank you Bruce for sharing this review of mine with the CC community. :)

I am sure all of us are looking forward to pick these up in the stores, plus the fact that the new Dwarf will be another pretty hot medieval character too.

Series 5 has shown up in at least one store in the UK. Burakki62 bought these at "WH Smith, whitefriargate, hull", which appears to be in northeast England:

Coming soon to a store near you!

BTW, it seems to me that some of the most (IMO) desirable figs from this line will also be extremely easy to identify by feel due to large elements. E.g. the Buckingham guard's big hat, the gladiator's helm, the lizard-man's tail.

Because the last series was shortly available at TRU, I figured I checked their website to see if I needed to make a visit this week. It seems they will be available there in the US on 8/16. Series 5 Minifigs

Wow, that's great news that these are out already. I would've guessed that the packages would've been red instead of blue (or a shade of) again. Definitely the army builder series so far....

Great to know the release date, too bad I already spent so much on my WIP. Guess I'll have to cut back a little on this series.

Hmm, I haven't seen these in stores yet. I'll definately be on the lookout. I really like the cavewoman fig!

Yeah she makes quite a nice companion for the the series 1 caveman! Feel for her rubbery hair or the club.

Will be interesting to see how many end up with opposite pairings! Female vampire and bride of frankenstein???
