LEGO Minifigure Series 4 Werewolf Review (8804)

with one comment

The fourth wave of the collectible LEGO minifigures finished off one theme they started on by giving fans two of the four major Universal Monsters: Frankenstein’s Monster and the Werewolf!

“Aroooo!”

Whenever the full moon rises high in the night sky, the Werewolf undergoes a startling transformation into a half-man, half-beast creature. Unable to control his primal instincts, he rampages across the countryside, terrifying all who encounter him!

…Okay, he actually just digs holes, buries chew toys in the yard, and romps around the park fetching sticks. It’s all a little embarrassing for the Werewolf, so if you happen to see him running around in circles trying to catch his own tail, please try to act scared. It’ll mean a lot to him.

Now the mummy and Dracula are no longer alone – the whole gang is here! LEGO has made werewolves before, but they usually ended up with hilariously oversized heads. This time though, he’s just a regular figure with a genius reuse of a hairpiece.

Wearing the tattered remains of a white dress shirt and jeans, the Werewolf looks like he’s had better days. His left sleeve is completely missing giving him a wonderful asymmetrical look. His furry bare chest is visible too.

The face has two massive canines on the mouth, sunken golden eyes and an adorable button nose. His hair is slicked back and his pointy ears are peaking up through. The hair is identical to the Elf’s and it’s genius reuse.

The only accessories are a black display stand and a small bone. The bone might just be a snack, a previous victim or both. It’s a nice touch though the inclusion of a silver revolver would have been neat too.

As a mini figure, I love any of them that push the boundaries of what a LEGO figure can be. Aliens, zombies and monsters are all great and this guy is no exception. He’s simple and gets most of his charm from paint and a pair of ears, but it works so well. Now I need to go eat some beef chow mien and wonder when LEGO is going to make the Invisible Man.
