Thank you - very disappointing series, mostly (except the alien hair, hope it's a normal one, but not sure).. and .. 15cm klickys?! What in TARTARUS?!

My wallet screamed when we saw the Dragons though.. even before prices... So, Toothless still has a ruined sculpt :(  What a shame... But maybe the white one is ok? At least she doesn't seem to have a stupid cannon in her mouth!

And Astrid is now a guy.

I dread the prices.

But great news for GrahamB! (and me ;D): The 3944 druid's purse will be available again, at very long last. Hurray!

Best wishes

Anytime :) ! I like some new figures of series 15: the old lady in blue, the Dutch girl, the cowgirl (new color of the hat?), the guy who's sleepwalking (I really can use that head for dead or sleeping klickies), the wood cutter (beard and hair are nice) and of course the new cowboy! Apart from that a bit underwhelming indeed.

Check the vehicle in the back of the farm picture (left from the farm house)... That looks really useful!!!

About the 15cm klickies, I like that they are trying to attract collectors. Ghostbusters is not my theme, but maybe they will release collector's items for other themes in the future... They seem to start to understand what Lego is doing already for years! Making collector's items (again)! Fingers crossed!

More pictures have been uploaded! http://www.klickywelt.de/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=70006&start=15

 Series 16 :o , they look much more promising! The musician with the double bass is really nice! I also like the man of Tyrol, the Duchess, the female inventor and the lady with the umbrella!

The Easter egg with the girl and the geese looks also really nice!

The new traditional klickies of the new Spirit series look also promising!!! Very useful for the Western theme.

A couple of nice parts/ideas, but lazily executed, IMO. Will need to gawk longer ;)

:o  I hadn't noticed! The green(ish) one, right? WHAT is that?   It LOOKS wonderful indeed!

Point - and no woman. Lame. Very lame. But I could maybe get Hiccup & Astrid... Ghostbusters.. meh. And probably can't trade the hairs and heads  :P  - I LOVE the klickys (browns), but the characters mean nothing to me...

The 15cm guys seem to me like attempts to compete with/emulate the success of Funko Pops.

I would pay money to be able to sit in on the planning sessions for the Fi?ures serieses. I can't imagine how they came up with some of those characters. Totally off the wall. I can't help seeing a lot of wasted potential.

The alien bug violinist is interesting and the barbarian warrior looks to have some good parts but the girl series looks more interesting overall. Gnome looks too similar to the last one. Series 16 much more interesting, particularly like the steampunk looking lady.

Like the pink girl in Spirit on the bicycle and the boy in brown.
