Nope. Nothing exciting. My first pass on an entire wave.

I'm still all in.

I agree there isn't a figure in there that is an "OMG!", but I do like them all enough to happily add them to the collection.

And my son will probably go nuts for multiples of the Alien Overlord figure ...

I hope Lego turns that Bat-Mini into a Man-Bat for the Batman Lego sets.

The guy on the upper left would make a great Clock King. And put some pants on that vampire, and you have manbat. I actually like quite a few of these.

damn! Lego store doesn't have them scheduled until mid-September.

Guess I'll have to start looking again...

Of course, the past trend indicates that patience will lead to some sort of sale price on these at TRU and you can probably end up with a set for a bit under regular retail.

So, do I jump the gun and get them now, or hedge my bets and wait for a sale or their stocking at the Lego store???

Probably a little of both... :?

I was hoping for the deep sea diver, but got the conquistador instead. :?

Anybody wanna do an even swap for a deep sea diver?
