LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71030 Looney Tunes Feel Guide [Review]

LEGO is going looney as the latest license to get a Collectible Minifigure series is Looney Tunes, bringing 12 classic cartoon characters to minifigure form for the very first time. LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71030 Looney Tunes blind packs will be officially available April 26, though like usual they’ve been starting to pop up in retail stores for a little while already. To help you get the full crew of ‘toons, we’ve compiled a handy Feel Guide that contains all the info you need to get started.

LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71030 Looney Tunes are available starting April 26 for US $4.99 | CAN $4.99 | UK £3.49. They may also be available from third-party sellers on Amazon and eBay.

LEGO 71030 Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures [Review]

In its unstoppable quest to bring every piece of your childhood memories under its umbrella, LEGO has added another venerable IP to its stable with the 71030 Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures. Although LEGO has collaborated with Warner Brothers many times previously (The LEGO Movie was a WB production, after all, to say nothing of DC) Warner Brothers’ famous cartoon characters had not yet graced the LEGO aisle of your local toy store. The new series of 12 unique figures targets some of the best-known characters from the animated shorts with Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Roadrunner, and others. And although the series is not explicitly marketed as such (there’s no reference on the packaging) it’s conveniently timed to coincide with this summer’s upcoming movie Space Jam: A New Legacy with LeBron James, and Lola Bunny with a basketball is included in the series. The new minifigures will be available for US $4.99 | CAN $4.99 | UK £3.49 starting April 26, although some readers report already seeing them pop up in stores now.

The LEGO Group provided The Brothers Brick with an early copy of this set for review. Providing TBB with products for review guarantees neither coverage nor positive reviews.

Looney Tunes voice actor Eric Bauza teases the new LEGO Collectible Minifigures on his Twitter [News]

While LEGO’s official social feeds are busy revealing the new Looney Tunes collectible minifigures one by one, Canadian voice actor Eric Bauza doesn’t shy away from bragging a couple of boxes full of yet to be revealed Looney Tunes minifigures on his Twitter account. Last December, Eric was put in charge of voicing Bugs Bunny, so he doesn’t miss a chance to bring some of the new LEGO minifigures to life while unpacking them.

LEGO 71030 Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures revealed [News]

Brickset reports that one of their members, shima55, has purchased a complete case of the upcoming 71030 Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures, giving us the first real look at this new series of blind packs that’s dropping ahead of the release of Space Jam: A New Legacy this July. According to Brickset, they were able to purchase the set in an independent toy retailer in California. There’s no word yet on when the new figures are slated to be available, but given that some retailers already have them in stock it’s a safe bet it will be quite soon.

Although shima55 has not yet provided pictures of the individual characters, there are a few things we know from the information available. There will be 12 unique figures, and they will come in a case of 36 like 71029 Collectible Minifigures Series 21. The 12 characters are:

  • Tasmanian Devil
  • Speedy Gonzales
  • Sylvester
  • Tweety Bird
  • Lola Bunny
  • Bugs Bunny
  • Petunia Pig
  • Porky Pig
  • Daffy Duck
  • Wile E. Coyote
  • Roadrunner
  • Marvin the Martian

Shima55’s receipt from the purchase shows that they paid $5.99 USD per figure, though it’s not clear if this is the MSRP we can expect or the retailer’s markup. Previous series have topped out at $4.99 each. We’ll be sure to bring you more on these figures as soon as the information is available.

LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71029 Series 21 [Review]

After 10 years and 20 numbered series and numerous special series, LEGO’s insanely popular Collectible Minifigures are changing up the formula a bit. Clad in vivid green packaging and first announced just two weeks ago, Collectible Minifigures 71029 Series 21 breaks from tradition by including just 12 unique characters, which come packed in new case sizes. The figures themselves tread the same ground as previous series we’ve enjoyed, with a wide variety of characters from different periods and walks of life, as varied as a boy with a violin and an Aztec Jaguar warrior.

LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71028 Harry Potter Series 2 [Review]

The Harry Potter franchise has become one of LEGO’s most popular and enduring themes, having given fans numerous iterations of most of their favorite characters since the line’s first wave back in 2001. In 2018 LEGO pointed their wildly successful Minifigures line at the Wizarding World, introducing a biggest-ever set of 22 characters from Harry Potter as well as from Fantastic Beasts in anticipation of the second film’s release with 71022 Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts Minifigures. Now LEGO is returning with another wave, though this one is focused entirely on the classic Harry Potter series. Featuring the traditional 16 unique figures in blind bags, LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71028 Harry Potter Series 2 are available starting Sept. 1 for US $4.99 | CAN $4.99 | UK £3.49. Despite nearly 20 years of LEGO Harry Potter sets, Series 2 manages to include five characters who have never before appeared in LEGO form, along with plenty of new character designs and a nice selection of new elements.

Eastwood’s lucky day

There’s never a shortage of Back to the Future and Back to the Future Part II nostalgia. However, for the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future Part III, the 1990 film gets its due respect in a LEGO remake of Doc Brown’s timely rescue of Marty McFly from Biff Tannen and his goons. Brick Grayson is the creator of this memorable western scene. The Hill Valley Courthouse (1885) is shown under construction with a wooden scaffold covering the facade. The Biff minifigure is holding the rope, while Marty (a.k.a. Eastwood), hangs at the other end. Standing near the top left of the construction site is what seems to be Marty’s great-great-grandfather Seamus McFly, wearing a derby hat. The Marty McFly from the future is wisely sourced using the cowboy torso from the series 18 CMF, along with the addition of pink arms to contrast the maroon-colored pants. The printed fringe shirt worn by Marty McFly also lines up pretty close to the LEGO version.

Check out Brick Grayson’s previous BTTF III scene from Marty’s wild west escape.
