Hey, don't forget my pet theme KK2. We had some pretty good non-dragon horse armor, even if it was funny colors sometimes.

Not to mention the unicorn armor from last year, which was also pretty nice I thought.

To be fair, there are big gaps in my knowledge of more recent releases... I must have missed these completely.

But for a while there it was all fins all the time.

I like the unicorn horse helmets a lot, the KK II and Fantasy Era ones were okay too except for the fact they made the horse seem very afraid and pathetic to me. With the unicorn helmets, the horse looks like it's saying 'you get in my way, you know where this horn is gonna go!'

Is that series 10? How very shiny...

Roman Centurion, Bee Lady (I don't know why, but for some reason I want to use that for a Lego music video... "all I can say is that my life is pretty plain..." - a good use for plain yellow smiley Lego heads), Medusa, Washington (looks like George Washington...), Biker dude with the wrench... and for some reason, the old guy makes me think of Waldorf from the Muppet Show...

The new Roman guy has a plume that fits into helmet pegs. The paintball helmet looks like it would make a great motocross helmet, and it's nice to see the Tonto's tomahawk getting used somewhere else.

Is that Medusa at the front and Captain Birdseye at the back? Interesting...

Medusa will make fine archers for my beastmen, going all Heroes of Might and Magic with them...

Other than that, nothing else interesting, maybe mohawkman and xena, but one of each will be more than enough.

The girl with the book and coffee mug reminds me of The Paper from the original three part Read Or Die series (not the shitty TV series they did later), and is a definite future girlfriend for Evie...

There are 17 figures in that picture.

Five bucks says Goldy in the upper right is a chase figure. God Damnit.

Yeah, I thought they said they were dropping a gold minifig in each set from now on to increase collectibility. Or did I read that here?

You'd almost think the people who came up with the blind-packed Minifigures idea did it specifically as a means of trolling AFOLs.
