LEGO Minifigures Series 8 – DJ

September 7th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Another one that the boys have wanted from day one. I have to say that I kind of liked it when I seen the first promo shots but now that I’ve actually seen it in the ‘flesh’ I’m not so sure.

 

I idea is great I just don’t think it’s been executed that well. The trouser decals look good but the teeshirt just doesn’t sit right with me. I don’t know if it’s the apple logo or the colour but it’s turned what could have been a great model into a filler for me. The hair piece is another place where it falls down. It just looks cheap and completely out of place.

Feel Guide

The hair can be a little awkward to find but your lucky in that both the record and sleeve are both very easy to find. If you find the sleeve first make sure and check for the record in case you mistake it for the Business Man’s newspaper.

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.

    It’s not an apple logo (FYI), it’s a minifigure head with an EQ-pattern fill. I like it.
