LEGO Minifigure Series 3 Review: Tennis Player (8803)

without comments

Yeah, there’s something wrong with me. Even when I get a perfectly normal LEGO figure, my mind still thinks they’re some kind of super villain with a really weird motif.

“I win again!”

The Tennis Player trains hard to be the very best at the game, and she’s got the athletic skills to show for it. Wherever the ball goes on the court, she’s already there, ready to send it flying right back where it came from with a lightning-quick, precisely-aimed swing of her gleaming tennis racket.

And what a racket it is! Forged by a master racket-smith from the metal of a rare meteorite alloy, it’s lightweight, perfectly balanced and almost indestructible. The Tennis Player never goes anywhere without it, and she’s sure that with her lucky racket in her hand, she’ll never lose a match!

The Tennis Player continues the trend of random LEGO figures playing sports. I guess LEGO doesn’t want to just make a “SPORTS” line again so they’re just making mini figures. After all, one LEGO tennis player is enough (I guess you need two for a match).

Tennis Player is wearing an adorable little uniform of a white polo with light blue shoulders and a white tennis skirt. Her feet are white and the little strip of yellow on her knees makes it look like she’s wearing knee high socks. Adorable!

The face is new and is definitely determined. The strong eyebrows and smirk make her look like she’s ready to take someone down. Her hair is  just like the Nurse’s but reddish brown. According to Brickipedia it is commonly known as “Headgear Hair Ponytail and Swept Sideways Fringe.” Someone is trying a bit too hard.

For accessories, Ms. Tennis Player comes with her black display stand (it would be great if it were in green) and a tennis racket. The racket looks great and is actually made so the strings are dotted with holes.

There isn’t anything super exciting about a LEGO tennis player to me (but maybe that’s because I haven’t played tennis in years). But the new female head, the new hair and the polo shirt are all adorable and make me love this figure.
