Great, thanks so much. Looking forward to the series a bit more now. Your Ewok Forest Folk group of customs are fantastic! Love those guys!

Thank you - I LOVE the first two...  :love:
(need to pay attention to see if that guy appears - MORE attention, I mean  :P )

It's a very strong series, even with the male torsos idiocy (I am trying to be polite)

Thanks for the review. Although maybe I shouldn't say thanks - I normally avoid the Mystery Figures, and then I read your reviews and I think 'Oh, I do like those envelopes! And the builders plans! and that hat!'  :lol: :lol:

I aim to please. Also, I will deny ANY responsability to your wallet. Just sayin'.

Great pics, tahra, with many useful comments and thoughtful customizations, as usual  :wave: (I especially like your proper female clown!).

I agree with you fully about the leaflets- why do we need a full page showing a meh mix and match figure, while the figures themselves get tiny pictures. And I agree the boys and girls leaflets are hard to tell apart at a glance. Let's hope they revert to the previous pattern in future!

Thank you - I can't believe someone gets payed for this without even being able to tell male and female torsos apart. What is the sense of that!?


I agree with you fully about the leaflets-

I would REALLY like to be able to ask these people why they do the things they do.. I mean.. really.

There MUST be a reason. Right?  ::)

I concur! They work extremely well both individually and as a group. Great selection of torsos!

Thank you - I am very pleased with them  :love:  Would not mind some more hats, but the klicky = meh (has nothing to do with the hat/forest)

Maybe Heather's data-scraping will reveal the hat's ETN and you will be able to get them through DS. It's not listed in PlaymoDB yet, though.  :(

I always look forward to your figure overviews! I'm disappointed that the bagpipe is flat-ish, but still it is a bagpipe; also disappointed that there are two figures they didn't bother making a female torso for. And why does the knight have full makeup? We always wear mascara to war? I'd love a female knight, but not that one.
I like the postal worker a lot more than I thought I would. The envelopes are great, and I appreciate her practical style, lol. The big skirt lady is gorgeous, and I like the male knight. He'd be a good addition to my anachronistic wise men hoard (I give my wise men random bodyguards, like Joan of Arc). The torso print on the vampire is lovely.

I agree about the leaflets.

I'm behind on mystery figures; still haven't picked up the ones I wanted from series 16 and 17. Is Ebay broken? I went there to browse, but the site looks all messed up.

Must be the recent browser update. I checked Ebay on another device, and it's fine.  ??? Bagpiper prices are, of course, inflated. Will see if that changes when the series hits the US.

I don't find the klicky anything special... And as to the pipes, don't need more.. The hat  though... I want 50 of them.  :love:   Wouldn't mind a dozen of the belt either..
