Ok for those of you who play or use your LEGO Collectible minifigs this is a warning, word is coming down that the minifig faces are wearing off of the head so if you use them be careful.

not sure but already heard a couple people complaing about the faces wearing off now, which kind of makes me glad I never bought into the CMF hype, but who knows theirs may have just been messups, but who knows.

Well where are people complaining? I haven't seen much of that on EB. But there isn't much to warn about. All Lego figs that have been made in the past years have weak ink, especially on the faces.

Hasn't it been rather well known that the CMF series are made quite a bit more cheaply than normal Lego?

X0 This news sucks. I'm a big fan of the heads for most of them and I don't want to worry about them fading so quickly. Maybe it's time BF starts making face decals.

What a shame, they were good faces! Has anyone complained to Lego yet?

This? This what? Is a good idea? Is a bad idea? Is how someone's complained to Lego?
