I think these might be some of the best Figures so far. The tall ghost is very creepy!! I don't mind that the Fire Wizard is almost identical to set 3932 from the 90's because he's an awesome figure. And I have a ton of the old crown to swap out if I want to recreate the original set.  8-)

Is the elf armor with the "flimmer" plastic with the reflective bits in it? Those are all great, can't wait til they get here in a few months.

The other day I ran across a possible source for that green elf figure. He might be referencing the "Leafmen" from the animated move epic that came out a couple years ago.

Nice find! It is a nice figure but I did wonder about the story or inspiration. You might have found it. Many thanks, Macruran!

Best wishes

There are definitely some similarities there. How have I not heard of this movie?

Maybe it was huge in Germany but nowhere else.

I think this is my fav series, the wizard has a Saruman-looking staff. (Or was that Gandalf the White? ??? ) I love elves but don't have any playmo ones. The soccer jock looks somewhat interesting to have, and the egyptian warrior looks GREAT. Same sorta stuff for the other guys, like the uber-cool and creepy ghost. >:D

Series 8 used to be my favorite, because it had so much fantasy stuff in it. But this one is definitely the best now. :love:
