Mint in Box: LEGO Minifigure Collection Review pt 2
Hey, guys! Sorry for the absence but I’m back with more LEGO Minifigures to review! Just like last time, these are from a bunch of older series (later this week, I’ll do some brand Series 7 figures) so let’s crack on!
“Ah hah hah hah! They called me mad at the university…and they were right!”
This Dr Insano-looking dude only made it into my collection because Editor Shane was bigging him up and having no will of my own, I collapsed under peer pressure and bought one. I’ve never encountered a rubber hair piece on a LEGO figure so this is a weird one for me, it fits okay, just not as well as a solid plastic piece would. He comes with a little beaker full of science. 7 out of 10
“Sure, I’ll show you where my gold is hidden! Just close your eyes and spin around three times…”
Hoit, hoit, hoit! Unlike many of the other minifigures I’ve amassed, I didn’t actually go looking for this wee fella. I was doing some shopping and wanted something to give me that purchase rush so I picked a random bag of Series 6 and got him. He’s okay, with his tiny legs and pot o’ gold. Kind of a middle of the road figure, this one. Hoit, hoit, hoit. 5 out of 10
He’s a toy of a toy robot. He’s so delicious meta. Tick-Tock (Fiver to whoever gets that reference) here fills in two little niches in my collection; Being a retro-looking robo to do my Mad Scientist’s bidding and a robot for my Lizard Man to fight. He’s fun and quirky but kinda bland too. 6 out of 10
“Stomp stomp stomp! Flee, tiny citizens! Flee!”
This is my absolute favourite of Series 5 and thus, the only one I own from that Series. He’s a little Godzilla/Reptar man! He’s adorable! He can fight Clockwork Robots and Gorilla Suit Guys! Need I say more? He’s a must-have in any minifigure collectors collection! 9 out of 10!
The LEGO minifigures are available in most place for around £2 so are perfect pocket-money toys or a fun little novelty to put on your desk! Check in later in the week for more!
