I SO totally agree!!! Just leave out Scrappy please.



It's what the Monster Hunters line should have been.

Man, I would have totally bought more of them if Lego had done that instead! :D

What about other movies? Thinking about this, I can't help but think a Lord of The Rings CMF series would just be the best thing ever. Fill it with all those cool secondary charatcers and army builders that won't make the main line: Easterling, Rosie, Shagrak, Butterbur, First Age Elf warrior, Isildor, etc. I would buy several cases.

I love the idea of a CMF Lord of the Rings line as a great way to both include minor figs and also act as an army builder source.

This would be one of the best things Lego could do! You're totally right, there are so many possibilities with additional characters and soldiers... I'd buy them out in a heartbeat if they ever decided to do something like that!

Oh my goodness, this idea screams money maker! I would be all over this. Seems like a great idea from a business standpoint.

Wasn't there a conflict with releasing licensed minifigs as stand-alones related to the reason they changed magnets so that you can't remove the figs anymore? Something about them being too similar to "action figures" instead of "building toys", which caused problems with the way the licenses are structured.

I wouldn't hold my breath for a CMF LOTR series coming out.

Good point but that was Lucas Films. Does it apply to all licenses? Who knows.

Also, all licenses expire sometime. Hopefully any action figure one would expire soon. Not like there are any AF lines for LOTR out there these days, anyway.

I saw some pictures of some Simpsons minifigures, but I couldn't come to a conclusion through the TOS if they were permissible to post or not yet.

Anyone care to help?

Ugh :twitch:.I think this is just taking the license thing too far.I mean seriously, this is an adult/teenager show, with some non kid stuff. Lego is aimed at kids, and they're doing the simpsons?seriously? I really don't think lego should make a license unless it would really make good sets.LOTR, I can understand.POTC, sure. Lego and Star Wars were a match made in heaven. But the simpsons? This just seems like making a license for the sake of making a license. I wish lego hadn't taken the license thing this far. :?

That would be amazing. I already spend WAY too much on the CMFs anyway, and at least these would be chock-full of could medieval fig parts. Also, I think they should do a series based castle. They've really hit on something with this series based on themes idea.

If this is true, it has completely killed all interest in series 13 for me. I hope those of you who want this will be happy and enjoy.


I agree completely.

I hope that this is the extent of the license at this point. A one-off minifigure series, and then nothing of it anymore.

Yes, I agree completely. This would definitely not have been my choose for a license(Mechwarrior, PLEASE) and I hope the minifig series is the end of it.

There are some pictures out there, I'm not sure they're fair game or leaks, so I'll not post them yet. In an unusual twist on licensed themes, the figures look terrible and the set looks good.

Thank you for not linking them or posting them.

Until we can confirm whether or not these are legit and not leaks, it is best not to share. As much as it seems silly to not show what other sites are showing, we at CC prefer to follow LEGO's wishes and not allow leaks on our forum. And we ask that our members respect that. We benefit from our relationship with LEGO and do not wish that to be harmed by not following their wishes. Thank you for understanding and not posting these or others.

I initially posted the picture, since it looked like a photo of a box purchased at a store. But then, as I read the eurobricks thread, it talked about leaks, so I edited the post to remove the pictures. But you are right, they are all over the place...

You know what makes me sad? The fact that lego is licensing this and not Mechwarrior Online/Battletech.
