I came across the Lego Minifigures today and I'm really happy with them. They only had 8 of the 12, so I still need Waldorf, Animal, Chef and Beaker. I haven't bought Minifigures in a while and I forgot what a pain in can be to "feel up" the bags.

Also, I shipped my POL today, so I fully expect the Same/Rizzo 2 pack to come out any day. Speaking of that pack, am I the only one who is bothered by the solicitations calling Sam Eagle "Sam the Eagle"?

Pretty sure he pronounces it "Sam the American eagle."

My full set from Minifigures Plus arrived earlier this week. I haven't had a chance to open them yet.

I just put together the set of 12. Fun figures for sure. If they were to round out another 12, I’d need:

Scooter
Floyd Pepper
Dr Teeth
Zoot
Sam the Eagle
Crazy Harry
Lew Zealand
Link Hogthrob
Julius Strangepork
Mahna Mahna
Snowth
Beauregard

Entertainmentearth.com has shipped my Sam and Rizzo. Should be here Sunday.

Apparently Rizzo is the same size as Gonzo which is disappointing. He should have been Bean size. Also, there seems to be only the podium as an accessory. Looks like cost cutting really got to this release.

I got an email from BBTS warning me the accessories reduced to just the podium. I don’t remember what the other accessories were supposed to be, but Diamond doing they’re new routine of trimming out stuff.

And Rizzo is Gonzo sized? I’m not a stickler for accuracy in lines, but isn’t that too large?

Saw Sam and Rizzo at my LCS today. They look good, so I'll add him to the set at some point.

The box art shows a poster of Sam with an easel (reused from Gonzo), a standing light (reused from series 1), and a phonograph (new) in addition to the podium. Aside from the phonograph, the cut accessories were "meh" anyway. It's just quite the drop from what we've gotten with prior releases.

Also, Rizzo being Gonzi height is insanely out of scale. An in scale Rizzo would be impossible, but if they made Rizzo Bean height it would work well enough. Bean is actually a little too small in scale.
