Minifig Monday - Those New LEGO Blind Packs
Well, so they finally arrived. I know they came out like a week and a half ago, at this point, but I found them for the first time yesterday, and we took the bullet and bought like $60 worth.
And I got...the doubles and stuff my wife didn't want. That's fair enough, I mostly was looking for them for her. Plus, I got some pretty sweet parts for the 'Rise of the Dread Knight' that I am working on. In particular, the Hun has what looks an awful lot like the Dawnguard armor (which is a brigandine, which does look pretty similar to the lamellar that the Hun is supposed to be wearing), not to mention the best LEGO representation of a Skyrim Iron shield that I have seen thusfar.
Now, the miner is pretty boring, but his color palette is useful for decal modification. The gamer is funny because he kind of looks like a younger, thinner, less bald version of me. So okay, he looks nothing like me. The miner and swashbuckler have limited use, but do have some nice parts. I don't know what I will use the Greek Goddess for, but she's so rad it hurts! The Space Miner just screams 'space marine,' and in fact shares many parts with the earlier wave's release. He had a cool drill bit to go with the space pistol, but it got...appropriated.
Anyway, just wanted you all to get a good look at some of these. I'll post more as they arrive.
