I made a couple of extra trips this week and completed my Series 6 collection. I have all 16 figs, plus an extra space girl and unopened Roman. (For convention trading, ext). I suppose I should feel bad about picking out ones that I wanted, but then on my last trip I met another AFOL. He was searching for Romans. And from that one store, he got all of their Romans; 17 of them! So every other poor sap was out of luck if they wanted one. (Luckily, I had already managed to get one from that store a few days earlier.
) Also, he told me that he was going to use them for a project, so I guess that's better than the people who are planning to turn around and sell them on ebay for a profit.
Anyway, I don't have picts of the rest, but how about text reviews?
(Okay, I'll make them quick!)
Alien: Kinda meh. The head is nicely detailed, but the torso is just skin lines. Reminds me of some of the Atlantis shark fig torsos. Not too exciting, unless you're after a bug eyed alien. However, the white gun and trans green bar are new colors, and great.
Statue of Liberty / Lady Liberty: Oh my, so much great detail. Excelent torso and leg / dress printing. 2x1 tile also has 'July IV MDCCLXXVI' on it. And the headpiece is so detailed, with the spikes and windows and everything. (The hair even has detailing on the back.) The face is mostly just a standard female face, but it might make for a good female zombie fig.
Overall, excelent figure, and any collector should try to get at least one of these.
Mechanic: HEEEEEEEEY That's what he says. He's got a dark blue uniform, and some extra detail went into smudging it up, along with his face. So if you ever need a dirty fig, here's one for you. He had a red workbox, but unlike the Gangster's violin case, it does not open. It's more like the boom boxes from the previous series. Still, nice details.
Leprechaun: Short green guy, but nice torso printing, and also more short green legs. Top hat in green is cool, and the new pot of gold piece is neat too... and I think it can fit the handles of the new bucket pieces too. Sadly, there's no peg inside, so the three gold studs that come with him don't fit into the pot. (On the other hand, if they did, they'd prolly get stuck there indefinitely.)
Clockwork Robot: Now this is a strange guy. He's got circuitry printing on his torso and legs, with some red and medium blue highlights. The rectangular head is also nice and detailed, but if you want to give him any resemblance of a neck he'll need to keep his backpack thingy on. The major drawback; the wind up piece on his back is dark grey, which clashes badly with the rest of his light grey body.
Sleeper: Not sure who thought up this fig, but hey we always could use a pajama minifig. (I guess.) He comes in the new light aqua color, but sadly his torso, arms, and legs all have white stripes printed on them, which works overall for the fig but hurts the parts for customization. Of the two faces printed, I prefer the sleeping one; the yawning face is a little too odd. Thing I noticed about the hair: it's the kind used for Kai in the Ninjago TV show. Crazy. Also, teddy bear is an interesting new mold: it can fit on top of a stud, and minifig hands can hold onto its arms.
Bandit: Classic western baddie. Front and back torso printing (mainly showing that he's carrying a lot of bullets.) Red bandanna is a cool piece, as are the two black pistols (I think that's the first time those have appeared in black.) The fedora would be cool in black too, except that we just got that piece from the Gangster. Still, it's nice.
Butcher: Crazy guy, with a cool cleaver piece and a giant steak. Torso has a blue apron printed on it, which extends down to the legs. Also has a new white cap. Not the best fig ever, but a decent one, and he has enough new pieces to be worth it.
Well, that's all of them. I might hunt for a few extras (Space Girl, SoL... not Romans) but I have a full set so I can't complain. Plus, I completely took advantage of Fred Meyer's "Buy 2 Get 1 Free" deal all week, plus an additional 10% off toys coupon. So instead of 18, I really only bought 12 at 90% of their market value. Score!
