LEGO Minifigure Rock Band rocks it out!

in LEGO Minifigures

There is a cute little LEGO minifigure set that came out recently that I thought to show you today. It is the #850486 LEGO Minifigure Rock Band set. The set is basically three of the Collectible Minifigures, but with different colors. Here is a picture of the new LEGO Minifigure Rock Band set:

Please note that even though these are the official LEGO pictures for the Rock Band, on the photo above the female singer is shown with the wrong hair-piece. The actual minifigures look like this:

As you can see there are pretty much the same as Punk Rocker from LEGO Minifigures Series 4, the Rapper from LEGO Minifigures Series 3, and the Rocker Girl from LEGO Minifigures Series 7, except for the colors.

I particularly like the Rapper’s spiky hair and the hair of the Rocker Girl in new colors. I found the previously released pink versions a bit shocking, but these are really nice. One thing I don’t like is the brick-built guitar in the set. I’m not sure why LEGO didn’t include the guitars they already made for the Punk Rocker and Rocker Girl before, but other than that, this is a nice little set to pick up for some unique minifigure parts.

The LEGO Minifigure Rock Band set is available at the Online LEGO Shop for $14.99. You can also check local LEGO retailers for availability. To buy online you can go here: BUY LEGO ROCK BAND

Agree on the guitar. That was an odd choice. Would be nice to see better speakers and maybe a DJ added to the mix. The rocker girl is cool with black hair…has a Joan Jett vibe. The drum set is well done. Wouldn’t hurt to have a bassist too.

Personally I think the speakers are fairly well done, althogh the guitar is wired but my guess is LEGO wanted to make “all” the insturments brick-built. I don’t like the new rappers face either, but the drum pieces are pretty nice. I wonder if it comes with three microphones or just two (the S2 singer girl came with an exra one, I think)? 😕

I thought of Joan Jett, too! Saw this at the Lego store today. Cool set, but couldn’t justify the $15 for it. Maybe on clearance some day. 🙂

This seems like it would be a set based on the old lego rock band videogame. But this is still a nice set that would be cute to display ( with the normal guitar piece to replace the brick built one), But the price is still a bit to high in my opinion.

Much better than the similar beach set because of the variability. Even the white shirt with chain is a different variant as the CMF on had a gold chain while this one has a silver one. The same printing of different colored pants is also nice. If LEGO does re-release more figures that were originally CMF, I hope they continue this trend. If people didn’t get the originals, these are pretty close, and the completes who have the originals have something new.

I agree that the price is on the high side. If you don’t count the pats it is basically $5 per minifig. Personally I’m also waiting for a sale, although with unique sets like this it could be a gamble; they could disappear before ever going on sale. So yeah… 🙄

Jacob, this is actually a really good point. Re-releasing CMF minifigs in color variations could be very nice. If it works out for LEGO, I know it works for me! 😉

I think the guitar is supposed to be a bass, but then again it would be missing one string… details I guess… since the actual LEGO minifig guitars don’t have 5 strings either… can we get a LEGO ukulele??? It would have been nice with the Hula dancer instead of the maracas.

I have the halloween set. It goes great with the monster fighters sets.

legostuff71 September 10, 2012 at 10:07 PM

I have all of the lord of the rings sets. At least the first wave. I hoping their will be more info on the hobbit sets. so, I can figure out my money plans. You know that thing called x-mas shopping for your family .( maybe I should find a lonely mountain filled with gold.Oh. wait . their might be a dragon guarding it. Never mind.)

legolotr1177 September 10, 2012 at 11:05 PM

I’m okay, it’s just I have a homework now that school has started.

gid617 September 11, 2012 at 6:44 AM

Actually, I would prefer the same minifigs instead of re-colorings; it gives me an extra chance to collect them. Of course, for those who have been getting the entire series. . . 😉

anniekan September 11, 2012 at 9:54 AM

yeah same here gid617 ( except the pink hair 🙂 )

anniekan September 11, 2012 at 9:58 AM
