LEGO Collectible Minifigures Party Series review

by admin on April 7, 2018

in LEGO Minifigures

As we discussed a couple of days ago, Series 18 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures is now available at official LEGO stores, the Online LEGO Shop, and various LEGO retailers. This is definitely one of the most interesting LEGO Collectible Minifigure series to date, worthy of celebrating the 40th birthday of the LEGO minifig. The collection is full of interesting new accessories and printed pieces, so let’s take a closer look. 🙂

The LEGO Collectible Minifigures: Party Series includes the Dragon Suit Guy, Firework Guy, Elephant Costume Girl, LEGO Brick Suit Guy, LEGO Brick Suit Girl, Cactus Girl, Party Clown, Cake Guy, Unicorn Guy, Flowerpot Girl, Birthday Party Girl, Birthday Party Boy, Spider Suit Boy, Cowboy Costume Guy, Race Car Guy, Cat Costume Girl and, last but not least, a rare replica of one of the first minifigures ever produced—the 1978 Police Officer.

Unfortunately, only one 1978 Police Officer is included in a full box, so he is definitely the rarest in the series. This little guy represents one of the first LEGO minifigs, with a very plain body-print and a simple smiley face. His accessory is a mini version of the #600 LEGO Classic Town Police Patrol released in 1978.

The Cake Guy includes a full minifigure in party suit inside a birthday cake. The most notable feature of this character is the new hairpiece with a hole on top for accessories, and the large birthday cake. We haven’t had a moulded cake since the LEGO Belville cakes of the late ’90s, so this is a very welcome piece. The hole on top of the cake (where the minifig’s body goes in) could easily get filled with a 1×2 plate or tile to create a full cake.

The Birthday Party Girl and Birthday Party Boy both come with several new accessories and prints; uniquely printed torsos and legs, new hairpieces, new balloon pieces with string, and new gift boxes with lids (both fully printed). Inside the girl’s gift box there are a couple of printed cookies (not new, but always nice to have), and inside the boy’s gift box there are a couple of new printed 1×1 tiles that look like the packaging of Series 1 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures. LEGO designers really went all out on these two figures, with every piece being super useful.

Most of the series is made up of super cute costumed figures, including Cactus Girl, Dragon Suit Guy, Elephant Costume Girl (with a new mouse!), Flowerpot Girl, LEGO Brick Suit Guy, LEGO Brick Suit Girl, Spider Suit Boy, Unicorn Guy, Firework Guy, Race Car Guy, Cat Costume Girl, and Cowboy Costume Guy. While the costumed minifigs are super cute and collectible as they are, several of the costumes are useful even outside of being body wear for the minifigs. Take a look at that cactus, flowerpot, flower, spider, firework, mini race car, and tiny horse head!

What would a birthday party be without a Party Clown? And this particular clown got an awesome top hat and two balloon animals; one translucent-pink, and the other translucent-green!

As you can see, this series is unique in every way! In the video-review below, JANGBRiCKS will show you all the minifigs in more detail. I recommend to pay special attention to the section on the costumed minifigures, as he will show you the costume pieces separately to give you an idea how they can work in other applications.

As usual with the LEGO Collectible Minifigures, each minifig comes in a sealed ‘mystery’ bag, together with one or more accessory elements, plus a collector’s leaflet and a unique display baseplate. The packets are available for $3.99 each, at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? How do you like Series 18 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures? Are you planning to get some of them, or all? Do you have any favorites? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

Oooooh, this is taking all my money this month.

If it works out I should be writing up a guide for this series.

For whatever reason it’s been spotty trying to get the last two series which would have been Ninjago and Batman Movie 2.

But minifigures should start arriving in the mail next week!

I just saw that original stickered policeman’s torso in a minifig bulk box at a charity thrift shop, today.

I didn’t buy it, though, since I’m primarily a spacer…

After having a quick look through my minifig collection, it even seemed that I actually had it already…

Otherwise, cute series, although I’m not sure on how many of these I’ll buy. There are Swedish distributors that sell pre-opened and sorted CMF:s, so perhaps I’ll buy the spider and/ or dragon guy, if the prices are right.

That’s a good way to sell them. I’m really not fond of spending hours at a store fondling minifigs. 🙄

I just pick up the brick girl , brick boy and the clown that makes balloon animals . The brick girl and boy will go great with my city Lego store.

That’s a great idea! They can be the mascots of the store! 😀

This is my favorite series ever! I don’t know when they will be available at local stores now that ToysRUs is gone, but I hope soon!

Main reason I’m sad that Toys’R’Us closed. They were the only one near us who consistently carried the collectible minifigs. Want this whole series badly.

Here’s another fun idea. From the Batman series 2 , I thought I would have Batman w/ dolphin , Batgirl w/ surfboard Robin w/ boom box and Alfred w/ swimsuit go to the beach in the Creators Sunshine surfer van. Having a beach vacation . Lol!

Sure, why not? Let them all have a beach party! 😀

And how about the Beach Joker? (The only Batman 2 CMF I’ve bought, myself…) The scene might need a mischievous trickster!

I stopped collecting the Minifigures when they started doing Batman, Ninjago movie etc… But I had to collect this set as it’s lovely.

Yeah, this series has all the charm and playfulness of LEGO. 🙂
