^ 3 potentially good things about the DJ; LP record piece (like in haunted house) + jeans (like rapper) + probably an interesting hair piece :o)
and I'll hazard a guess that the 'trader' translation is more likely 'businessman, with bowler hat.
That's my point. We all see potential in different figs. And my intial 'mehs' usually become my favs once I have them in my hand (eg series 7 Rock Chick).

People also differ in how they intend on using the minifigures. I often see that people are happy with multiple skaters, for example, because they have a City layout or a MOC skate park to add them to; whereas for me, I'll only ever display the CMFs by series. That's why I really don't like getting male/female varients of the same minifigure.
Agreed, on all counts. The minifigure from Series 7 that I own the most of is the Computer Programmer. It's not wildly popular because it's not "cool" or wielding a weapon, but to me it's an awesome "ordinary person" minifigure that I can use as an army builder of a different sort.
I guess most of our avatars tell you the types of characters we like. Which reminds me - you lot without avatars yet .. come on u know u want to ..
Ancient Thespis - Sounds neat, maybe he will be holding a new skull mold
^ Maybe santa will be getting a big belly after all
^ Maybe santa will be getting a big belly after allI'm amazed at how negative people are being.
^ I'm not, people love to moan.
I think the criticisms have been fairly reasonable.
Agreed. People aren't being negative, they're being critical. Instead of being fanbois who gush at the smallest little thing, they're making observations.In all honesty, Series 8 sounds like a dud. While I can't say for certain until I actually see them, most of the figures don't sound interesting and several are suspiciously like retreads of earlier ones (and there's plenty of precedent for that in the CMF line).
If the diver is Atlantis or S1 style, it will be a dud. If it is a new diver, with a copper style diving bell helmet, it will be cool. And so on for every other "repeat" figure.
I might even add a basement to one of my buildings for the IT crowd.
The only whining going on here is from those accusing others of it.
Normally I don't really know if I like a minifigure until I have it in hand, I know I'm certainly not able to judge from a list of names.
Chinese warrior just like the terracotta warriors or Chinese emperor.BTW if you are a CMF collector, there is a recent DK Lego sticker book out, it contains all CMF from series 1 to 7. It was really fun playing with the stickers. There are lots of extras to stick elsewhere too.http://amzn.com/0756692512
