|Yes, "Series 12". NOT "Series 13" as evidently the set that featured all Simpsons characters prior to this one, is not part of the official series run.|
Such a Dumbledore sort of feel to this particular figure (from the first two Harry Potter movies, when he was portrayed by Richard Harris). The little details like the robe folds and the foil pattern on the cape, stand out on this particular minifig.
Piggy Guy (Cosplayer Pig)
|The head sculpt of the mask and the green apple are the two accessories that came with Piggy Guy.|
The Life Guard
|The Life Guard came with two accessories, binoculars, and a floatation device (not pictured).|
I get it, because of the connection holes, they decided to not put any graphics on the back of the legs, but the look is a bit jarring, and something of a shortfall considering how on Bart Simpson (who did not have connector holes, to be fair) DID have wrap around shorts.
|Although I did not get into this particular series (I would much rather prefer a Futurama set), I was really impressed by the faithful design cues that Lego kept from the original character designs. I love the slingshot in his back pocket.|
|Packaged with a foil, a foppish hat with feather, and a lot of swagger.|
Now, as you can see, on this minifig, they added BACK detail. The figure looks much more finished this way, and in this case, they very well could have left the detail on the shirt off on the back, but the sash and shirt look so much completed this way.
So there's my take on the first four minifigs I've gotten from this series. The good news is that the variety in this set is still as wide as ever, and there are some genuine standouts in the set.
|The whole cast of minifigs out now in Series 12.|
Until next time!
