Happy New Year friends. Let’s celebrate with the next series of Lego collectible minifigures! This is by far the best series yet which is probably why Lego raised the price a dollar more. Each figure is now $2.99.
Still not a bad price and considering the first two series sold out in the first day of being available maybe this price will help ration them better. Anyway, onto the minifigs!
Just look at this happy family of minifigs. Lets go over each one shall we…
First off let me just get to the best one. We finally have a Lego Elf!
I’ve previously written about the hope of sets containing Lego Elves. And finally we have one and he looks amazing. I think this may be a taste of things to come. Hopefully now that Lego has the mold for elf ears they will use it for a complete line of Elf sets. Fingers crossed people, fingers crossed.
Next up is Gorilla Suit Guy
This is just odd and yet cool in some way. He’s a little funny, a little creepy and a little cute. But whatever he is I gotta have him. Here’s what the Lego.com site says about our friend the Gorilla Suit Guy.
The Gorilla Suit Guy is a mystery. Who is he? Why is he wearing that suit? Does he think he’s an actual gorilla, or did he get lost on his way to a costume party? He certainly acts like the real thing, or at least like someone who’s watched a lot of old movies and TV shows and thinks that’s how a gorilla should act. And he sure is wild about bananas.
The Gorilla Suit Guy could turn up anywhere. In the park, at the beach, hanging out in a store window or jumping up and down on a trampoline, he tends to pop up in the most surprising and unlikely of places. And while he may not be a real gorilla, somehow no one ever wants to be the one to tell him that!
Space Villain is my next favorite.
Besides being a great minifigure design I also love him because he’s a cyborg. And you know how I love cyborgs. But the best thing about this minifig is that “B” on his chest. Longtime Lego fans will recognize it as the Blacktron logo. Blacktron was an awesome series of space sets in the early to mid 90’s. Is the Lego company telling us that there will be new Blacktron sets coming soon? It could just be an homage. We shall see in time.
Okay is it just me or does this guy look like he was totally designed to look like Kevin Federline? Yes, this minifig has a striking similarity to the once Mr. Britney Spears. Or does he remind you of someone else? Let me know.
Those are my top picks. Here are the rest of the figures. All are very detailed and will be a great addition to your collection.
Race Car Driver
That’s the Lego Collectible Minifigures Series 3 my friends. Get them while supplies last, you know they’ll disappear fast!
