Today is the release day of the latest series of surprise bags. Their RRP price has finally gone up (in Germany from 1,99 € to 2,49 €), leading to unusual restraint on my side. This might wear off.

A mixed bag, with some nice figures and more mundane ones. I have picked my favourite six.



Details will follow, but already now I am eager to know what you think of the guy on the far right. What (or who) is he supposed to be?

Great picture! These are definitely some of the best of the lot! <*)

I believe he is meant to be a gargoyle.

Yeah that's definitely a "gargoyle come to life", whether it's just a whimsy or meant to be a character in some media show, I don't know. Marvel had two characters called "Gargoyle", and there was an animated show about living gargoyles, but both are pretty obscure/old.  :rudy:

I think it's just random, but it did make me think of the Angel statues from Dr. Who which come to life (I don't actually watch Dr. Who, as may be obvious from that description!)

I'm no Dr Who expert either, but I agree that figure looks like one of the Weeping Angels, which can only move when your eyes are shut and then they move very quickly, so DON'T BLINK!

Weeping Angels are usually depicted as female though. I think its a gargoyle. It is very reminiscent of the LEGO collectible minifigure series gargoyle from a few years back.

Spot on, Tiermann, down to the texture and colour of the plastic! Even the chest print matches:

Would love to see a chainmail version of that ninja mask. Vampire has a Castlevania vibe to him.
