I had to take a second look at this one, partly because at the back of my mind, I’m still wary about those April 1st “news” that I have to contend with. However, I’m glad to say that this piece of news is excitingly legit and by no means a prank. Because as it turns out, the once rumored LEGO Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures (71030) is now finally confirmed! Beep beep! Super cool minifigs coming through!
Thanks to a Brickset member, we now have our first legitimate look at this new LEGO CMF. And to remove all doubts that this might be illegally leaked, Brickset member shima55 even uploaded a copy of the sales receipt issued by a third-party retail store from Northern California. The receipt confirms that the LEGO Looney Tunes CMF box contains 36 figures retailing for $215.64. And with 12 minifigs in this series, it stands to reason that each box contains three complete sets.
And wow, just wow! I’m already loving this CMF line! The care and effort that LEGO just showed in coming up with an entirely new range of minifigure molds for this series are just awesome. And how these minifigs captured that classic Looney Tunes nostalgia just leaves the entire CMF to be desired. The choice of accessories is just as hilarious as well. I’m really having a blast right now at those anvil and birdseed accessories for Coyote and Road Runner. I bet Sylvester will also have second thoughts on that massive sledgehammer that Tweety is holding, lol. And the references for those Rabbit Season and That’s All Folks printed tiles are just spot-on hilarious.
shima55 was also kind enough to share this CMF checklist as well, where we can see all of the twelve characters included in this LEGO Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures (71030). I zoomed in at each character so we can have a better look.
#01 Lola Bunny
#02 Bugs Bunny
#03 Wile E. Coyote
#04 The Road Runner
#05 Tweety Bird
#06 Sylvester the Cat
#07 Daffy Duck
#08 Speedy Gonzales
#09 Tasmanian Devil
#10 Marvin the Martian
#11 Petunia Pig
#12 Porky Pig
Though these minifigs are numbered in such a way that suggests that they are basically paired (like Coyote and Road Runner, or Tweety Bird and Sylvester for example), I couldn’t help but wonder why Elmer Fudd or Yosemite Sam is not included in this list. I’m just crossing my fingers that this offering is just the first series for this line and that a LEGO Looney Tunes CMF Series 2 might be in the works as well.
Whatever is the case, this latest LEGO CMF will definitely be in my must-have minifigs for this year, and I just hope that LEGO Shop@Home will be listing them soon. So what are your thoughts on this latest LEGO CMF offer? Which LEGO Looney Tunes character are you most excited for? Let’s talk about it in the comments below.
A big thank you once again to Brickset for sharing this good news.
