This thought stemmed from a discussion in another thread but thought it qualified for one of it's own.
The Collectible figures series is great for new parts and moulds and I'm enjoying the diversity of themes in each series. I've also seen a lot of clever castle-related uses for various accessories (ice skates as an axe for example) and figure parts.
So what uses have you found/seen for these parts? Is any part beyond usage in the castle theme? Is any figure truly worthless (in terms of castle)?
I seem to be amassing an army of were-wolves in the hope I can integrate them into my troll/skeleton army.
Yeah a gnome army would be awesome, though I have found that the beard and hat don't seem to work on other (non-gnome) figs without looking goofy?? Was hoping it might be good for Santa's elves, or some persian type(?) warriors. But everyone just looks like a green smurf.
I will be interesting to see how some of the new moulds crop up in the main Lego themes in the future.
