The quality control is out of hand...especially on this mystery series. I thought that the torso were getting rubbed by customers in stores "feeling up" the bags. But now I'm convinced that's not the case since your figures came boxed and never felt up by the general public.

Well, unfortunately, this is not a Figures problem, the issue has YEARS by now - I remember pointing it out on my review of 3274 (?) on playkingdoms... This happens all the time.

It's basically predictable at this point that we will see a skateboarder/rollerblader and fairy in every series!

My problem isn't having skateboarder/rollerblader or a fairy.. With the former is that they look like I don't know what (or can't say), with a full diaper. The fairy... ANOTHER repeat. Can't they do something original?! Can you imagine what you could come up with if you could have all the parts available? Now imagine you had the power for new colors/prints? Not to mention the possibility of new molds.

And they release that woman AGAIN?! Please.

That is NOT the point. Point is the fat guy being in the figures. Almost the same klicky. And the only fat one.

This should not be the place for reeditions. They did the same with the fat karate guy.

Hold on to your glasses, Tahra  ;D

I don't have the new dwarf yet...but a friend (a dwarf collector..) has...and he explicitly pointed out the new color...and that it is matching the old green of the Napoleon. He was so happy to have a new color.

I might recommend to him to see an ophthalmologist...

Maybe he doesn't have the first dwarf? From the figures, I mean - the legs are the same as this one.

Even if it was a different shade.. well.. there are at least 2 or 3 different green dwarf legs.. So...

I really like your custom versions, especially the samba dancer and the updated bride.

Ex-samba dancer and ex-bride  :P  ;D  I really like the fairy - I think he turned out great :love:

I'll definitely know which ones to look out for at Luxplaymodays now.

I aim to please.

I fully agree.

Hi Tahra,

Give me your glasses....

(My friend said he made a mistake....the dwarf from the advent calendar has the "old green" legs)

Uhm? The one from the advent has a different shade of green, and a gold belt printed. These are the same as the first dwarf, from the figures...

I'm confused.  8}

Don't be confused, Tahra. My friend just admitted he is color blind...
Essentially, he gave me the wrong information  :-[
Sorry for mixing it up...

Thank you for the great review. It was fun reading (as allways). I didn't have ones I really liked, but thanks to your great pictures I'm really going to look for granny and the bride.  :love:
