LEGO’s Collectible Minifigures are a glorious thing. We get some really exciting characters that may bot have been possible in years before. This year we’ve got a new theme – Looney Tunes!
This time it’s a bit different, with 12 characters to collect, in a much smaller box. They’ll be available from 26th April, 2021.
LEGO’s Community Engagement team kindly sent me a full box to review, and it arrived at my door over the weekend. It’s been opened, distribution numbers have been checked – there are three full sets per box, which is great! I’ll also be giving away a full set of 12 minifigures to two lucky winners. If you want to get your name in the running, take a look below!
Each bag a little flyer showcasing the full series on one side, as well as some basic instructions for those minifigures that need it (having buildable weapons, tails or fabric elements). Let’s take a look!
Lola Bunny is Bugs’s girlfriend, and was first seen in Space Jam in 1996. She’s got sports gear on, dual moulded legs with side prints, her ears in her trademark ponytail, and carries an orange ball, as a basketball. On the back is a printed tail poking out under her top.
Bugs is great, but I’m just not quite convinced it’s right. The face just looks a little off. Maybe it’s the eyes? The whiskers? Maybe it’s the mouth. I think it’s something with the proportions of the head compared to the more squat body. I just don’t think it’s instantly recognisable as Bugs Bunny. He’s also got a carrot with him, and a printed tail on his back.
Wile E Coyote
This is one of my favourite minifigures! His facial expression is brilliant! It’s a combination of determination and somehow the inevitable “uh oh” when his plan backfires. The awesome addition is a little brick built anvil! It’s fantastic.
This is another one that seems off with the proportions. RR has a good facial expression and shaping in the feathers and tail. The neck is a bit thick, but it’s another one of those things that can’t be helped. RR’s got a bowl full of what I’m guessing are seeds.
Tweety Bird looks rather comical – squat and chunky, but that head is great! He’s got an oversized mallet, ready to bonk Sylvester on the noggin. A bit violent for LEGO’s usual releases…
Sylvester the Cat
Sylvester also looks great – one of the best looking ones in my opinion. He’s got a nice unique tail element, dual moulded and side printed legs and carries a baseball bat – I’ve not got many of these, so I’m happy! His torso print isn’t as white as it could be, but that’s what you get printing white on black.
Daffy is rather simple, but works great – two toned legs, a brilliantly shaped head, and he carries a Rabbit Season sign. I kind of wish there was the alternate Duck Season for Bugs, but oh well.
With short but moveable legs, Speedy Gonzales comes with three cheese wedges printed as cheese! His head and oversized hat are dual moulded and look great, and the tail just finishes the look off well. The only niggle with this one is that it looks like his top is too short, as the brown of the tail element pokes through. If tail elements are able to be dual moulded too, Speedy can get a makeover!
As an Aussie, the Tassie Devil is a favourite. His manic nature is well represented in the minifigure and he carries a turkey leg and a cream pie. The oversized face is a little odd but works well. What I’m not sure about is the base. He gets a round 4×4 tornado plate to stand on, with a slide shoe underneath. It’s not balanced enough to spin properly, so it just sits at a weird angle. I don’t know that this works.
Marvin the Martian
I’m so glad Marvin got included! He’s brilliant! They’ve even got the skirt element right, although it’s a little thin. The helmet is the best thing about this minifigure, plus the lime green ray gun. He’s also the only character that has a regular minifigure head.
Petunia is one that I wasn’t familiar with. She’s the girlfriend of Porky Pig! She’s got a great head element, with pigtails, and comes with a tea pot and cup. She’s also got a red skirt (the non-printed Minnie Mouse variant), which is a solid addition. The legs are the middle sized legs, and are dual moulded with bloomer printing. Also, a spare teacup!
Lastly there’s Porky Pig. The nervous, stammering pig had to be included, and he’s carrying the classic Looney Tunes sign that wraps up all the shorts – That’s all Folks! His back has a printed tail.
And that is all, folks! 12 of the best Looney Tunes minifigures are now able to be a part of our collections. For the most part, they’re brilliant, and I can’t wait to see some MOCs with them included. I think these will go just as well as the Disney minifigures – they’re a cartoon series that’s been around since the 1930s, so many people have heard of them. Yes, there’s been some controversy recently, but I don’t think it should have much of an impact on the set.
A special thank you to LEGO for sending me a full box to review. All thoughts on this series are my own and are not influenced in any way, shape or form. The provision of sets for review does not guarantee a favourable review.
