Included with the Christmas card was a pair of unopened LEGO Series 14 Collectible Minifigures.
Now, this was an exciting gift for me because I have yet to open any of the Series 14 figures. In fact, before I show off which figures I got, let's take a look at the entire checklist for Series 14.
Looking at the checklist, there are a few figures that I'd definitely like to track down including the guy dressed up as a carnivorous plant, the gargoyle, and the two ghostly figures. I'd also like the trick-or-treater and the big foot figure.
So how did I do with my two packs? Let's find out!
Woo! The first pack that I opened contained the Gargoyle. In a series full of monsters, the Gargoyle is one of the few figures that could potentially find itself used in a custom City set-up (perhaps as a decoration on some gothic-themed building). I particularly like the wing piece on this figure, very cool! I actually wouldn't mind getting at least one more Gargoyle figure...because if I ever were to build a custom building there's a very good chance I'll want at least a pair of Gargoyles to flank the entrance!
Sweet! The second pack contained
I'm really pumped that both packs provided me with a figure that I really wanted. Heck, since I didn't have any figures I'd have been happy with any of them...but to get two of the six most wanted figures from the set? That's pretty darn cool - and a great Christmas present!
