Quarantine continues and I placed another order of Lego. I am waiting on a large bricks and pieces order but I also ordered 76157 Wonder Woman vs Cheetah because as soon as I saw that giant golden radar dish I wanted it. It came with double VIP points – which seem to be meaningless these days – and a free 30369 Beach Buggy polybag. I got suckered into ordering 2 each of the DC Super Heroes Minifigures and the CMF Series 20.
First I’d like to say that the CMF bags have gotten much larger. So….is that why they cost $5 now?
Like I said, I got suckered, classic Shop@Home move to get two of the same minifigure when you can’t feel the packaging. I know, I know, this is the name of the game, you win some you lose some, but I don’t even know who that guy is!
He comes with some clear, make it look like you’re flying boosters to put on the stands though. (You’ll have to excuse me, I’ve been out of the CMF game for awhile.) But just think of all the possible permutations of 4 figures out of the choices I ended up with two of that guy and drone kid and karate kid.
Karate kid has good hair at least. And Drone kid must come with the most individual parts for a CMF. But really though, a quick visit to an online permutation calculator says when choosing 4 from 32 different items that can repeat there are 52,360 possibilities. I would argue that the combination that I got is no higher than 51,984. (And yes, this is not correct because really we’re making 2 choices from 16 combined with 2 choices from 16.) What is that on Drone kid’s shirt there? An aqueduct? A strange squared off M? A T-Bone steak? If you know, drop us a line in the comments. On to the free buggy.
Side surfer california floppy hair – check. You do wonder about a surfer that has a windsurfing shirt on – maybe he’s saving up for the sail.
So anyway there you have it – a beachy little buggy that was free. It almost makes up for the CMF disappointment. No, it doesn’t. I’ll have a review of the Wonder Woman set up soon.
I just looked and the minifigure’s name is Metamorpho.
