The Big Bad Wolf gets into many dubious adventures. Often cast as a villain in various fairy tales. The most famous of which is Little Red Riding Hood. This Lego figure is based on the pivotal scene in which the girls faces off with the wolf. The build is created by PaleoBricks and called “The better to eat you with!” The wolf is an entry into the Bio-Cup 2020, a challenge to build something with a “Canine” theme. The Big Bad Wolf is completely made out of Lego and is wearing a sleeping cap and blanket. The figure uses a lot of Bionicle pieces mixed with standard Lego. The end result is surprisingly clean, and looks natural. A few interesting details include the old style Lego Minifigure cape used for a tongue, the Minifigure arms hiding in the ears, and the blades being used for the tail. An overall great detail is the use of the lighter grey color on the chest and jaw.
The new Lego Minifigures Series 11 is just starting to show up in stores. The packaging color will be a deep green, which matches the “holiday” theming of this series. At least three of the minifigs have a winter theme, including the Gingerbread Man, Yeti, and Holiday Elf. It looks like Series 11 is another great release. Although the distribution may cause the more desired minifigures in this set to be rare or uncommon.
WhiteFang, over on Eurobricks, has written up the definitive review. Every few months another Minifig Series is released and WhiteFang is there with an extremely detailed writeup. These figures have proven to be some of the most interesting that Lego produces. The sheer amount of new parts and detailed printing separates these from the normal minifigures from the other Lego sets.
“To me, this series remain a huge importance in the LEGO history and affirming my belief that all of these minifigures in the past, present and future series will continue to be regarded as part of the ‘Golden Age’ for the LEGO CMFs theme.”
The bad news for Series 11 is that the distribution is not at all friendly for the collector. The rarest figures are the most desired, Scarecrow, Tiki Warrior, Grandma, Jazz Musician, Bavarian Lady, and Dinner Waitress. This means that if picking out these figures from an opened box, the chances of finding these are extremely low. There are only two complete sets per box. Lets hope you like the Rock Climber, Welder, Constable, or Yeti as these are probably the minifigures you will find.
The upcoming Lego Minifigures Series 11 has now been fully revealed. Herman Napierala sent the above image over to Brickset. It is from the little instruction sheet and collectors guide from a recently purchased Series 11 minifigure. It seems that the Leclerc supermarket in Poland is selling these a little bit early.
Series 11 will include: Barbarian, Scarecrow, Bavarian Lady, Evil Mech, Tiki Warrior, Gingerbread Man, Holiday Elf, Yeti, Mountain Climber, Welder, Scientist, Jazz Musician, Diner Waitress, Grandma, Constable, and a Lady Robot (Fembot).
