Minifigure Spotlight - Reverse Flash

Man I have really been neglecting this blog.  My apologies life sometimes gets in the way.  I did have a bunch of Minifigure Spotlights queued up I just haven't taken the time to write them up.  So let's remedy that right now.  

I'm a huge fan, if you didn't know, of the Lego's Marvel and DC Superhero lines.  And while I do love getting the Batman and Spider-man figures, what I really love is all the ancillary characters that come with the sets.  Case in point this great Reverse Flash minifigure.  Featured in set 76098 - Speed Force Freeze Pursuit, which also has the Flash, Cyborg, and Killer Frost.  One of the few sets not to feature Superman or Batman.  A great minifigure with two faces and a great mask sculpt.

Lego Minifigures Disney Series 2 Checklist and Rarity guide.

A nice mix of characters spread out throught the Disneyverse.  The only rare characters in the set are the Huey, Dewey, and Louie minifigures falling just 2 per box, and that means each box of minifigures will only yield 2 complete sets.  At least that's what I've found on the interwebs.

1. Steamboat Willie - Mickey Mouse
2. Steamboat Willie - Minnie Mouse
3. Huey
4. Dewey
5. Louie
6. Scrooge McDuck
7. Chip
8. Dale
9. Elsa
10. Anna
11. Jafar
12. Jasmine
13. Hades
14. Hercules
15. Sally
16. Jack Skellington
17. Edna Mode
18. Frozone

Minifigure Spotlight - Green Lantern John Stewart

Besides Kilowog, I'd say John Stewart is my favorite Green Lantern and definately my favorite human GL.  This minifigure was exclusive to the DC Super Heroes Build Your Own Adventure Book.  The build also comes with a bunch of pieces to make a cool translucent space ship. I'll have to see if I can dig it out to show it off.   John comes with an alternate face.  I wish we'd see some more Green Lantern Corps figures.  The only other GL minifigure I know of is the Hal Jordan, from the 76025 vs Sinestro set.  Would be nice to get a Guy Gardner and of course a jumbo Kilowog!!

Tears of Batman / Disco Batman Online Bonus Polybag

 My son's birthday is coming up and while he's not quite ready for regular Lego's, he loves superheroes so I went online to pick up the larger Duplo Spider-man set.  Of course while shopping I had to pick up a few goodies for dad and I also wanted to hit that $75 threshhold so I could get this.  It's been awhile since Lego has offered a bonus that I wanted.

I haven't gotten to see the Movie yet, but I've only heard good things.  However I've found the minifigure series to be awesome even if some of the figures are ridiculous.  These two are just as ridiculous and just as cool.  Have a look.
 The gold cape is super sweet and shiny.

 Sorry for the blurry photo, just to show I ended up with a couple extra pieces.
