LEGO Review Collectible Minifigures Series 6: Lady Liberty #8827

with one comment

I honestly think the LEGO Collectible Minifigures is the best idea LEGO has had in years. It allows them to make some absurd figures that people like me will buy simply to complete a set. How else would you get someone to buy 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.

You can call this Lady Liberty, the Statue of Liberty or Libertas – doesn’t matter! She’s green and horribly out of scale with most LEGO figures. Or maybe she’s supposed to be in micro scale. But like your average LEGO figure, she still manages to look phenomenal. Her torso and sloped dress piece are beautifully painted to look like a toga, while her face is almost vacant. The really weird part is that she’s cast entirely in sand green plastic, so the little details are where her design really comes through.

To make up for her unique coloring, she’s given a bunch of accessories. Her hairpiece is a mix of hair and her spiked crown. Her other accessories are a torch and a 2×1 plate that reads “July IV MDCCLXXVI” which translates to July 4, 1776 – Captain America’s birthday! She also comes with a display stand.

When trying to find Lady Liberty in the packaging, feel for her sloped dress piece in addition to her crown since there are two dress wearing females in this wave. This is an odd figure though, she doesn’t really fit into any wave (maybe Architecture?) though you could easily use her to battle a Stay Puff Marshmallow Man Minimate. Though now I really want LEGO to make a Lady Justice with the Highlander’s broadsword, Lady Liberty’s toga design and a new scale piece.
