Whitefang over at Eurobricks did his usual review, including distribution.

Just two forest archers? :?

Anyway, with that in-depth look I can say that while this might not be my most favorite series, there's still several decent figures here. I'm surprisingly eager to pick up a Judge, finding it a sum-of-parts-is-greater-than-whole deal, rather like last series' Bavarian Guy. I'm disappointed that the Cyclops is olive and not sand green, but stepping pack for a moment, I can see a broad trend of using olive in a similar way (Monster Hunters Frankenstein, Moria Orcs, etc). I'm also amused by the Not-Mr.Hyde, and gladly anticipate using him to make a non-fleshy Two-Face.

In my first buy I got two Cyclops Ogres, the Battlemech, a judge and the Alien Trooper guy.

I found a Fortune Teller too- all three of the "rare" females are easily distinguished by the dress block, so glad I at least got one of them checked so far.

Looking at your buddy icon, I'd say you're probably rather happy about that.

Yeah, I have yet to find them near me. The only place that usually has them is a Toys "R" Us a half hour away. :( I think the knight looks cool, and I also think it would've been nice for him to have a big shield like the evil knight. The forest maiden, from what I've seen and read, looks sweet. I kinda think she might be like the Elf and go fast and then end up expensive. :? The fortune teller, I also agree, would make another great female commoner. And as for the cyclops, I'd probably use him but just switch his head for the olive green heads I have, and make some orcs or something. Good luck finding them guys, and get your fingers and thumbs ready! :D

I have this same issue, but for me it is closer to an hour away. So I order mine from s@h 16 at a time. I got lucky with my 16, I am only missing three (waiter, plumber, and the cop).

Your other option is to check out the box of 30 available at bricklink. Even with shipping, it may end up costing less per fig than trying to get figs without running the risk of trying to get them one at a time. I may actually end up going this way myself just to get more of the figs I really do want in this case...as far as I'm concerned the only one I don't need multiples of is the cop...because I have a lot of cops already.
