The Last of the Figures Made From Our Existing Stockpile

Ok, so here's the latest post. A few notes: I'm not doing the hashtags anymore; it's too much minutia to keep up with. Also: Just as I was finishing principal photography, my son came up with a last-minute creation that he wanted to add, so he got tacked on at the end, and does not appear in the initial group photo.
By the way, I have seen (on other blogs) complaints about how much Lego minifigures cost. Well, I don't know what your rationale is, but in my experience, most metal miniatures of good quality cost either three or four dollars apiece, un-painted. Most people (such as myself) don't have the time to the paint them; most figurine painters charge between 10 and 20 dollars per figure to paint them. I once got lucky, and got 10 figures painted for seven dollars each, but that's because I got a discount for bringing so many figures at one time.
That means that those ten figures cost between 10 and 11 dollars each. Let's go low, and say ten each. That's a hundred bucks for 10 figures. I ordered ten Lego men (with mix and match torsos, heads, legs, etc.) from Pick-A-Brick for about half that. Add to that the fact that Legos are built to withstand torture from the average 6-year old, compared to metal miniatures that bend and break from breathing on them too hard, and you come to an inevitable conclusion: Legos rule, dudez. I'm sticking with them.
Ok, enough jibber-jabber! On to the photos!
