The highly anticipated LEGO Minifigures Series 6 have been showing up at various retail locations. This particular LEGO minifigure series was highly anticipated due to some incredibly nice minifigures.
Here is the official description: “Inspired by sci-fi, world history, mythology and everyday life, the LEGO minifigures collection continues with Series 6! Each unique and colorful character comes with special accessories, a display stand and a collector’s leaflet, and is packed inside a sealed ‘mystery’ bag, so you never know which minifigure you’ll get. Collection includes: Roman Soldier, Highland Battler, Minotaur, Bandit, Classic Alien, Genie, Leprechaun, Intergalactic Girl, Butcher, Mechanic, Skater Girl, Surgeon, Sleepyhead, Clockwork Robot, Lady Liberty and Flamenco Dancer.”
Flickr member PA (Semper Fi) has already put together a legion of Romans, which gives you a great close-up view of these awesome LEGO minifigures:
And here they are in action! Poor highlander! 🙁
Now lets get a closer look of all the LEGO Minifigures in Series 6! The Romans are not the only winners! This series is full of wonderful surprises! Here you go! 😉
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Flamenco Dancer: “Behold the blaze of el baile flamenco!” The Flamenco Dancer lives for the fiery rhythm of flamenco. She knows every part by heart: the singing, the guitar, the clapping and most especially the dancing. Just follow the music as it winds through the streets and you’re sure to find her dancing with her fan in hand long into the night. The Flamenco Dancer is always looking for more ways to express her passion through dance. Recently, she has formed an unusual partnership with three other musical Minifigures: the Maraca Man, the Punk Rocker and the Hula Dancer. By combining their talents together, they’re hoping to create a whole new kind of flamenco to show off to the world!
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Lady Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled Minifigures yearning to build free!” Lady Liberty is a symbol of creative freedom to all Minifigures, no matter their theme of origin. Holding her torch up high – and sometimes waving it around when she gets really excited – she is a beacon of inspiration to all who see her. Lady Liberty protects against oppression of all kinds. Villains and tyrants may try to topple her, but she always stands tall (well, as tall as any Minifigure, anyway), stirring the hearts of patriotic citizens everywhere to build bigger and grander brick creations than ever before.
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Clockwork Robot: “Beep-boop! Who-wants-a-hug?” The Clockwork Robot just wants to be loved. He may have started out as a simple toy, but somewhere along the way his little ticking heart took on a life of its very own. Now that he can walk and talk and think (as long as somebody remembers to keep his key wound up), he’s hoping to find his true place in the big LEGO® world. But what does a Clockwork Robot do? He can walk around making beeping sounds, and he has lots of shiny buttons and dials, but he feels there must be more to life. He’s tried copying some of the other Minifigures, but he kept falling off his horse, deep-sea diving made his gears rusty, and masked wrestling was definitely a big mistake. Maybe he’ll just try hugging everybody he sees instead!
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Sleepyhead: “Just five more minutes…” Ya-a-a-awn! Is it really time to get up already? The Sleepyhead isn’t quite ready to face the morning yet. He was just having a totally awesome dream about adventuring in a magical world full of colorful knights with swords that shoot lightning… or was it the one about the time machine powered by historical hats? Who can rise and shine when bed is so comfy and you’ve got your favorite teddy bear by your side? Don’t worry; the Sleepyhead will be up in a minute. Maybe he’ll just close his eyes and grab a quick nap first, though. After all, you can’t get through the day without plenty of rest! Zzzzz…
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Surgeon: “Some say laughter is the best medicine, but I say MEDICINE is the best medicine.” Nothing distracts the ever-serious Surgeon when she’s performing an important operation. She works with a level head and a steady hand despite any rock monster rumblings, dinosaur attacks or invasions by brain-sucking aliens that may be going on around her. Then again, it’s no surprise when you see who her patients are. Without the Surgeon’s pioneering work, modern medicine wouldn’t know how to mend a rock monster’s lava gland, perform a tonsillectomy on a Triceratops, or stuff all of that brainpower back where it belongs. It all may seem a bit unusual, but to the Surgeon, a patient is a patient no matter the circumstances!
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Skater Girl: “Who cares what anybody thinks? I skate for me!” Some Minifigures skate for fame. Others skate for thrills. But for the Skater Girl, it’s all about having fun! It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about her skating skills as long as she can feel two things: the wind whipping through her streaked hair, and her custom-painted board beneath her feet. But sometimes the more you try to avoid attention, the more of it you end up getting. Thanks to her carefree attitude, the Skater Girl has gained a huge fandom devoted to discussing all of her latest skateboarding tricks and stunts. But she doesn’t care – they can say whatever they want, and she’ll just keep on doing her own thing her own way!
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Mechanic: “Sure, I can fix that… but wouldn’t it be even cooler with a rocket engine?” Nobody is better at quick repairs than the Mechanic. He can fix any dent, ding, rumble or rattle with his handy wrench and toolbox, and he doesn’t mind getting dirty in the process. No matter the problem, he’ll have your vehicle running as good as new in no time flat… but he never quite seems to know where to stop! To the Mechanic, there’s no auto in the world that wouldn’t be improved by adding a couple of stylish fins, a fancy spoiler and a big engine on top of the hood. And while he’s at it, he might just put in a submarine propeller, some ejector seats, a couple of extra wheels and a booster rocket or three. If that’s what he does with a car, imagine what he’ll do with a spaceship!
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Butcher: “Howdy! How about some meat?” The Butcher is a cheerful chap in his tidy hat and apron, always happy to chat about the weather or pass on the latest news from town. But no matter how a conversation with him starts, somehow it always ends up coming around to the subject of meat. It’s really no surprise; after all, it’s the Butcher’s very favorite thing in the entire world. Whether you’re talking poultry or sausage, hamburger patties or a fresh T-bone steak, you’ll never find anybody who knows more about meat. Ask around and you’ll see!
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Intergalactic Girl: “No thanks needed. I’m just doing my part to make the spaceways safe!” The name of the Intergalactic Girl is cheered by life forms on every inhabited planet, moon, space station and asteroid in the cosmos. As an interstellar adventurer, she and her daring outer-space exploits are the stuff of legend throughout the known universe, and even a few of the unknown bits, too. With nothing but a quasar zapper, a pair of antigravity boots and a can-do attitude, the Intergalactic Girl has single-handedly saved solar systems from black holes, rescued civilizations from cosmic conquerors and captured entire fleets of Blacktron battle cruisers. She never has time to stay for the celebrations afterwards, though, because there’s always another space crisis waiting just around the next nebula!
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Leprechaun: “Sure, I’ll show you where my gold is hidden! Just close your eyes and spin around three times…” The jolly but mischievous Leprechaun loves to play pranks on anyone who comes looking for his famous pot of gold. He can appear with a wink and vanish with a nod, hop down a rabbit-hole or leap to the top of the tallest tree, and even transform into a talking animal if it will help him pull off a really fun practical joke on an unsuspecting treasure-hunter. The Leprechaun once misplaced his pot of gold and tried his luck at being a shoemaker, but it just didn’t work out. The problem was, almost no Minifigures actually wear shoes…and on most of the ones that do, they don’t come off!
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Genie: “I’ll grant your wish… your wish for bricks!” Rub the magic lamp and this friendly Genie will pop out to grant your wishes*… as long as they have to do with LEGO® bricks! Want a big enough pile of pieces to build a perfect full-scale model of the Great Wall of China? No problem! Looking for that long-lost LEGO Castle set you left in the playground when you were 5 and never saw again? Your wish is his command! There’s only one limitation on the Genie’s incredible magical powers: he doesn’t do instruction booklets. He’ll give you all the bricks you could possibly want, but it’s up to you to figure out what to do with them. Ask him why, and he’ll just tell you that building steps are another genie’s department! (*wish-granting requires use of imagination)
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Bandit: “Whaddya mean, I can’t have seven aces?” Lean, mean and bad-mannered, the black-clad Bandit is a notorious outlaw of the Old West. This despicable desperado is an expert at cattle-rustling, horse-stealing, claim-jumping and train-robbing, but he always ends up getting caught by the long arm of the law thanks to his one big weakness: he cheats at everything. Whether he’s playing cards or trying to outride the sheriff, the Bandit always looks for the unfair and easy path to fortune. He’ll take secret shortcuts that get him stuck in cactus patches, swipe the fastest stallion in the county only to have it throw a shoe, and rig sharp-shooting contests that end with saloon signs crashing down on his head. As long as he keeps trying to cheat, this bad guy will never win!
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Minotaur: “Wait, was it left at the next passage, or right?” Half Minifigure and half bull, the legendary Minotaur is said to make his home deep within a great, maze-like labyrinth that only the most brave or foolish of heroes dares to enter. And while that much is true, the rumor that the ferocious beast guards a fabulous treasure is not…in fact, he’s only in there because he can’t find his way out! The thing is that the Minotaur is just terrible at directions. He used to have a map of the place, but he lost it somewhere and ever since, he’s wandered around the labyrinth hoping to run into somebody helpful who can show him where the entrance is. Unfortunately, everyone that he’s met so far either tries to fight him or runs away. Maybe it’s the horns… or the axe… or the cow-breath?
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Highland Battler: “They may take our bricks, but they’ll never take our imagination!” The Highland Battler is proud of his fighting skills, proud of his strength, and especially proud of his fine plaid kilt. He feels that he is upholding the history and traditions of his whole clan in every challenge he faces, from defending the Highlands to playing board games, and he accepts nothing less than glorious victory at each one. He considers any kind of loss to be a crushing blow to his honor, and so he strives to be the very best at every competition imaginable, whether great or small. Most importantly, though, he always insists on winning by the rules. To the Highland Battler, there’s only one thing in the world worse than losing – and that’s being a cheater!
LEGO Minifigures Series 6 – Roman Soldier: “I’ll march anywhere, fight anyone, and build anything you command!” Ever since he was first assembled, the Roman Soldier has followed his orders without a moment’s hesitation. Just tell him what you want done and he’ll carry out your command right away, treating each mission as equally important no matter how tough (or silly!) it may be. The other Minifigures sometimes take advantage of this, so you may find the Roman Soldier hard at work doing the dishes, taking pets for walks and building aqueducts all over town, just because somebody else didn’t want to get their own chores done. But he doesn’t mind the extra work – according to him, that’s what a Roman Soldier is for!
So, there you have it; the whole line-up of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 6! My favorites are the: Lady Liberty, the Genie, Sleepyhead, and the Minotaur. How about you? Which ones are your favorites? 😀
