We already saw its box art and packaging, and this time, we have our first look at the LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigure checklist courtesy of LEGO Quick Review. Sightings and reports of this CMF’s availability has been making rounds on the Internet, and now we get to see its official checklist. There’s a total of 20 minifigures to collect, and the ones that I’ve set my sight on are the Jay Walker (#6) and Flashback Garmadon (#15) minifigs.
The checklist also provides some pretty exciting details on how to assemble the more complex minifigures. I find it interesting how the oriental skirt wraps around Master Wu’s minifig – quite ingenious actually.
If you’re eyeing to collect all 20, you’ll be happy to know that there are exactly 3 sets of 20 minifigs per box. You have the usual option of feeling your way through each blind bag, or just grab the entire box (if you have the cash to burn) and share the rest of it with your ninja friends. The LEGO Ninja Go Movie Collectible Minifigures will be available to the general public starting in August of this year, while the film itself is slated to hit theaters on September 22.
We had our first complete look at the LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures last month. With a total of 20 minifigures under its belt, this latest collectible minifigure series based on LEGO’s next huge film is already proving to be attractive to most Ninjago fans and AFOLs. This time, thanks to Promobricks, we now have an idea how the official box art and blind bag will look like.
The box itself contains 60 blind bags, and is said to contain 3 sets of all 20 minifigures. It’s nice that LEGO opted to have this CMF series evenly distributed in such way. Any avid collector has thrice the opportunity to collect all 20 minifigs. If you wish to have a greater chance to pick-up that LNM minifig that you want (I would personally go for the Jay Walker minifigure with that new, scarf element and smartphone accessory), The Brick Fan came up with a helpful, feel guide that you may want to check.
The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures will be available for sale both online and in-store starting August 1.
We saw the first halfof the LEGO Ninjago Movie CMF yesterday, and today the reveal has finally come full circle when LEGO unveiled the rest of its collectible minifigures line for its next big, brick-built film. Revealed via social media, the second half of the LEGO Ninjago Movie CMF also highlights the rest of the film’s characters, plus some of the villains under Garmadon’s command. Speaking of Garmadon, it’s interesting to see that LEGO has thrown in three variants of the film’s main antagonist in one CMF series, and having his ‘battle version’ included in the series is a great way to have him without breaking the bank. Pair him up with Lloyd and you instantly have a winning combo collection of both father and son. Other than the pajama donned, Volcano Garmadon, we also get to see another version of Garmadon as teased by LEGO last Father’s Day. I’m curious to see how the Flashback Garmadon fits into the overall plot of the film. Will it appear in the film, and if so, could it mean somehow that Garmadon wasn’t all that ‘evil’ in the past? After all, being ‘Ninjago’s #1 Dad’ would still mean something.
Here’s the final instalment of the LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigure Series. I’ve also included a nifty thumbnail below where you can find all the minifigs in this series in one go. Which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t forget to drop us a note at our official Facebook page.
The reveals are now in full swing with LEGO’s latest brick-built film, the LEGO Ninjago Movie. Following the official announcement of its retailer exclusives now comes the exciting line of the film’s collectible minifigures. Announced via LEGO’s Facebook page earlier today, the first half (10 out of 20) of the LEGO Ninjago Movie CMF includes some of the film’s lead characters, and common folks of Ninjago City. It also offers a few, never before seen elements such as the sushi roll and oriental bowls. I personally dig the Jay Walker minifig with its smartphone and scarf accessory, and will look great on the Hiker (71013) minifigure from Series 16. The second half of the film’s CMF line will be revealed tomorrow, so stay tuned!
Promo Bricks has recently spotted the LEGO Europe Summer Store Calendar, and with it comes a promotional find that most minifig collectors will find interesting. For a minimum purchase of £25 or 30€ from August 10 to August 30 both in-store and online, you can get to bring home the Iconic Cave (5004936) set for free. The promotional set contains two cave people minifigures very similar to LEGO’s Caveman and Cave Woman CMF from Series 1 and 5 respectively.
The Iconic Cave set follows the tradition of other similar re-bundled CMF promotionals like the Gingerbread Man and Chicken Suit Guy. We’re not sure yet if the Iconic Cave will find its way in the US and other countries, considering that we already know what’s in store for the month of July such as a pretty cool LEGO BrickHeadz Wonder Woman Build Event, free Mini Piggy Bank (40251) promotional, and the rumored LEGO Creator Expert Double Decker Bus (10258).
In continuing with today’s presentation, WB Games has just revealed how the newest characters from LEGO Dimensions Wave 9 will play out from LD’s portal. Officially revealed a couple of weeks back, these Wave 9 characters include Teen Titans GO, Powerpuff Girls, and Beetlejuice. During the presentation, TT Games’ Head of Design Arthur Parsons was joined by Game Director Jimmy McLoughlin, and Gail Simone, DC Comics Writer in talking about what is new about the level of gameplay with these new characters.
It was also later on revealed that playing the Teen Titans GO! Team Pack (71255) will allow access to an exclusive in-game episode that shows the Teen Titans having a blast in a LEGO building contest. Apparently, Raven does not like how the odds are going against her, so she decided to open a portal in a LEGO world inside Cyborg’s maze to get the upper hand, and as you may guess, things get crazier from there.
LEGO Dimensions Wave 9 will be out starting September 12 of this year. In case you missed it, here’s WB Games’ complete Day 1 presentation at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017, followed by the LEGO Dimensions Teen Titans GO! official trailer. Stay tuned again tomorrow for more reveals at Day 2 of E3 2017.
Last April, we reported on a DC Comics Super Heroes minifigure exclusive that will be offered together with Dorling Kindersley’s Build Your Own Adventure Book Series. This time, we have a closer look at this exclusive thanks to Amazon UK. DK’s latest LEGO book offering comes with the very first, LEGO John Stewart Green Lantern minifigure. It is expected that this rare minifigure will be eyed upon by most collectors since this is the only second iteration of the Green Lantern, the first being Hal Jordan as seen in the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Green Lantern vs. Sinestro (76025) set.
Check out these clearer images of the LEGO John Stewart Green Lantern minifigure, together with some preview pages from the book.
This DK exclusive Green Lantern minifigure sports a different torso as compared to Hal Jordan’s version on 76025. Furthermore, unlike the latter, the exclusive minifig features a pair of glowing, green eyes and a slightly varied black and green leg print. It also comes with instructions in building Stewart’s spaceship, a sledge hammer construct, laser jammer, bank vault, and Flash’s Buggy. Here’s a preview of what you can find inside DK’s latest offering.
If you don’t want to miss out on the chance of having this minifigure, be sure to take advantage of placing a pre-order to guarantee your copy before the book is released to the general public on August 1, 2017. It will retail at USD$16.50.

It seems that LEGO’s latest CMF series gained some traction when the official character names and images of Series 17 were released yesterday. This time around, Brickset managed to have their copy of this latest CMF series ahead of its May 1 release. They were kind enough to share how the minifigs are distributed in the box, together with the series’ corresponding checklist. Take a look.
5 in the box:
Corn Cob Guy
Circus Strong Man
4 in the box:
Hot Dog Man
3 in the box:
Though Huw of Brickset made it clear that he is still not permitted to show the details of Series 17’s Mystery Figure which is rumored to be the French Highway Man, it is interesting to note that he confirmed that there are 5 of this mysterious character in the box. This suggests that the distribution of this Mystery Figure is far different from how Mr. Gold was given out in LEGO CMF Series 10 (71001). The secrecy behind this rumored French Highway Man only leads to further questions on the real story behind this mysterious minifig character. For sure LEGO has good reasons for keeping this a secret until now, and they’re doing a pretty good job of doing so.
So what do you think brick fans? What is the real deal behind this mystery figure? What does LEGO have under its sleeve, ready to surprise us? Share your comments below or visit our Facebook page to join the discussions.
We first saw them last month at the New York Toy Fair, and since we’re roughly less than 2 months away from their release in May, excitement is in high gear for LEGO’s 17th series of Collectible Minifigures. Series 17 is filled with many characters that I’ve already ticked off in my must-have list, with Rocket Boy and Corn Cob Guy topping my list. Check out the rest of the Series 17 minifigures right here.
If you’re already hyped about LEGO’s CMF Series 17, then this might interest you as well. There has been some hints (aka rumors) now circulating over at Eurobricks on how special Series 18 will be. As it seems, though we don’t have our hands wrapped around yet on our favorite Series 17 minifigures, it looks like some pretty well informed folks are now in the know on what the 18th CMF series will be.
In line with the 40th anniversary of LEGO’s minifigures – they were introduced way back in 1978 when the first little plastic guys made their way as part of LEGO’s Town, Space, and Castle sets – the designers behind the CMF series seems to have a costume party theme in mind. This is not the first time that a themed series was introduced as part of the CMF. Series 14 (71010) aka the Monster Series released in September of 2015 featured an impressive line of minifigs and new elements.
According to sources, Series 18 will feature minifig characters donned in costumes as they celebrate their landmark anniversary. Imagine Banana Guy, Chicken Suit Guy, Hot Dog Man, and Orca partying around and you’ll get the picture. Perhaps akin to this one.
It was also mentioned in the forum that these costumed minifigs will be unique in itself, and will not be a sort of a rehash from previous sets or collectibles. There were worries at first that Series 18 might be like an overkill, saturating fans with too much costumed minifigures. The appeal of the costumed minifigure in any CMF series lies in the fact of its exclusivity and rarity, and having an entire set of minifigures donning costumes might just overdo it. I guess it will largely depend on how fun and creative LEGO designers will be.
So what do you think brick fans? What particular costume do you wish to see in Series 18? Do you like the idea of a costume party theme for the next LEGO CMF series? Stay tuned for more updates here at the Brick Show!
