Now They’re Out There

Mission Accomplished

On the 25th of March, we innocently asked on Instagram, who’d be interested in reviewing some of the new collectible minifigures from series 20 for us. Some of you replied. Onehundredandsixtythree of you to be precise. We went through all the volunteers and discussed to and fro. In the end, we chose to send some surprise envelopes to fourteen of you. Some of these fourteen we knew before. Of some, we had only heard. And some were complete strangers to us but we still reached out, when after all you all got back to us.

On the fourth of April, we put the first review online. Twenty-six more posts followed. When we first asked you on IG, we seriously hadn’t thought that the interest in this new series would be THAT strong. Wow. We do want to say a massive THANK YOU to all of our crowd reviewers! You people rock! We were simply blown away by incredible pictures and wonderful ones. We impatiently followed some massive stories and fell in love with minifigures as you kept portraying them.

Meanwhile, the minifigs are available at your favorite local toystore or from the LEGO online shop.

Om Iets Aan De Wilgen Te Hangen

Welcome @lego_a_gogo

Today Willemijn from the Netherlands will share with us her thoughts about some new CMF20 minifigures, some of their their dark necessities in particular and toy photography in general.

The Llama And The Pinata Boy

The little boy with his original pinata

The pinata boy is a happy figurine. It’s very colorful and just waiting to start the party. But wait, what’s this? There’s another pinata, a moving one…

Uh-oh, better run, little llama…

I really enjoyed this llama-pinata boy combination here because I think it worked so well with the ‘live’ pinata thing going on. Ok, maybe that was a little mean. I also like the garden pictures with the Mexican boy and the llama both on their own.

And Now: Sports

Meet Paul

In our review series for the new minifigures, we’ve made quite some new friends. One of them was Paul. You may remember him for The Karate Kid. Today, we’re going to meet the other Paul of this CMF 20 review. His IG account is @lego_men_explore.
Let him show us his views here:

The Great Goal

Years of practice. Countless hours of sweat, tears and aching muscles. Blocking out the memory of all the things you gave up to pursue your dream.
It all comes down to this. A chance to show the world your skills.
A chance to review one of the new Lego Series 20 minifigures for Stuck In Plastic!

I jumped at the opportunity to review the new Sports Girl minifigure from CMF Series 20. Whilst cute characters like the Llama Girl are particularly popular, it has always been the action-orientated figures that I prefer. The Rugby Player from series 19 was a particular favorite. It’s not even that I’m a big sports fan myself. I just love trying to recreate dynamic poses with the limited articulation of those little plastic limbs.
