LEGO Minifigure Series 3 Review: Hula Dancer (8803)

with one comment

Cloth on LEGO figures can be awesome at times, mildly frustrating at others but this one figure takes the cake for driving me absolutely insane trying to assemble it.

“Aloha, everybody!”

There’s just something about being out in the sun that makes the Hula Dancer want to dance. She knows dozens of different hula dances in both traditional and modern styles, and she loves to perform them, no matter whether she’s in front of an audience or all on her own.

There’s only one thing that she likes better than dancing, and that’s teaching other people to dance. If there’s a big crowd around on a bright day, you can bet that the Hula Dancer is in the middle of it all, getting everybody to sing, play instruments and dance as long as the sun is in the sky!

Hula Dancer continues the beach theme set forth in the second series of the collectible minifigures. Hula Dancer takes the legs from the Lifeguard and painted her bottoms green. Her torso shows off a green bikini (I’m kind of surprised they didn’t paint coconuts) with a pink lei around her neck.

Her face has a giant grin on it that looks a lot better than the forced smile of the Cheerleader. Her hair is black and hangs over her right shoulder with a pink flower painted so it looks like its hanging over her left ear.

The grass skirt is near impossible to get on and needs some odd looping to stay put. But once it’s attached, it stays put and prevents her legs from moving much. What’s nice is that the figure can be dressed as a Hula dancer or just look like a girl on vacation in a green bikini.

The standard 4×3 display stand is included and isn’t that exciting. The black color is starting to really get boring (but I’m sure some people like the uniformity). She also comes with a pair of maracas like the Mariachi, only hers are just brown.

Now with the Lifeguard, Surfer and Hula Dancer in the LEGO-verse, I really want to make a beachside cookout including a whole roasted LEGO pig. She’s a solid little figure though.
