LEGO Minifigures Series 8 – Cowgirl

September 7th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Despite the boys initial dislike for the figure and the girls instant love of it I’m actually really liking it. I honestly can’t think of any sets that we have that we could use it with though. I guess mine will be staying on the shelf and my daughters will be used when ever she can steal the horses from the boys.

I love the simple design of the model. The decals look crisp and for once the accessories actually give it some motion rather looking… well looking like a lego figure standing on a shelf I suppose. I’m not a fan of the non-standard hair/hat pieces you get with the collector series though. Very cheap looking and sometimes they don’t fit in with build quality of the rest of the minifig. In this case though you barely notice it once it’s on the minifig.

Feel Guide

The lasso is easy enough to find in the packet. The loop is slightly angled and even though it’s the bend-able plastic they’ve used it still retains that shape in the packet. The hat/hair piece is another way to ID the minifig. It can be confused with the cheerleaders hairpiece but you should be able to find the rim of the hat easily enough.

As with the Olympic minifigs I thought about producing a dot/bump code guide for this series. In all honesty though after sitting staring at the packets in my house for a good twenty minutes I just can’t read them well enough. The robot packets I have for example all have the same lot codes  but completely different dots. They are probably exactly the same but just too faint to read properly and if I’m being completely honest if you can get close enough and have the time to look for the dots you’ll have a far better success rate with the feel guide and spend less time on it as well.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Cheers!

    Blogging can be an entertaining, rewarding hobby,
    and in many cases it can also make you money or
    open doors to greater opportunities. A dog cannot be taught to make situational behaviour distinctions, so jumping should never be
    encouraged if the training is to be effective.
