LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 24 - A Return to Form

LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 24

The Collectible Minifigure (CMF) Series has delivered some fantastic LEGO characters over the years. However, the past few series have felt lacking in imagination, as we have seen less variety of people and more and more minifigures in costumes, which feel like a bit of a cop out.

LEGO recently announced the line up for the 24th Series, which will be available from 1 January 2023, with each mystery bag costing £3.49 / $4.99 / $3.99

While this series is by no means the best, it's certainly an improvement over Series 21, 22, and 23. While there are two figures in costume, they're both of high quality, and the T-Rex man is one of the best dressed up figures LEGO have ever given us. We're very glad to see the ridiculous outfits, such as the Airplane Girl and Ferry Captain, disappear, at least for the time being.

There are also some characters that fans of older LEGO sets will be pleased to see. For starters, there's the Classic Space minifigure in a new colour suit, albeit a colour that's not the most appealing, but it's still great to see references to LEGO's past.

Then there's the Black Falcon(er), which adds more fuel to the fire about the rumour that the Black Falcons will return in the near future. This minifigure will be a great addition to the Lion Knights' Castle, which was released this year and included a small travelling band of the legendary faction.

Another one for Castle fans, is the Orc, which is a reference to the Fantastic Era subtheme that was first introduced in 2007. This minifigure benefits from the decade and a half time gap between now and then as he/she is more detailed and vivid rendition. If you have some of the Fantasy Castle sets built and on display, this minifigure, with its fantastic cape and giant shield, could act as the leader of your orc army.

This is certainly a series that will get me rushing to the shops come the New Year. It's likely to be the penultimate series with plastic packaging, as LEGO have stated the cardboard ones will appear in September. This means it's going to be a lot harder to collect them all, so we recommend you take advantage of the feelable bags will you can!
