LEGO Minifigure Series 4 Figure Skater Review (8804)

without comments

Not every single LEGO collectible minifigure can knock it out of the park. There has to be the occasional dud to really make you appreciate just how impressive this line actually is. But when even the less exciting figures are still excellently executed, you know this is a company that means business.

“Just give me music and I’ll skate to it!”

Elegant, graceful and light on her feet, the Ice Skater can create an elaborate figure skating routine for any music…any music at all! Just play something, no matter how fast or slow, loud or soft, and she’ll show you a dazzling display of ice skating skill that will leave you applauding and shouting for more.

But that’s not all! For her most stunning feat, the Ice Skater will start out up at the top of a huge block of ice and begin to skate. By the time she’s done with all of her spinning jumps and pirouettes, she’s used her shining skates to carve out a beautiful ice sculpture based on any subject you choose!

The Figure Skater meets the mandatory female figure quota for the line and isn’t a bad figure by any means. I just don’t see why anyone who isn’t a figure skater would want one, unless you’re hosting the LEGO Winter Olympics. Wearing a sky blue unitard that’s covered in silver sparkles and a giant star, the paint work does a great job at “slimming” her down with dark blue lines illustrating her figure. Her back is also painted with sparkles.

To make her outfit more scandalous, the Skater’s left arm is completely bare while her right is light blue. It works well enough but makes her look oddly lopsided. Her legs are like the Hula Girl and Lifeguard with a bikini bottom painted on and a light blue waist. Her legs are painted yellow but don’t quite go to the edge so they look slightly off.

Her face is a bit over the top with a large smile and way too much make up. The blue eye shadow and vibrant red lips combined with a few scattered stars just looks trashy. Her hair is a new blonde piece that’s heavily stylized in a bun and shaped bangs. Around her waist is a cut dress that leaves half the hip exposed. It works well and was a lot easier to put on than the Hula Girl’s.

A black display is also included along with a pair of ice skates that are identical to the Hockey Player’s.

This is just one of those figures that does absolutely nothing for me. I’m sure there is someone out there who will adore her but for me; she’s just kind of boring. She’s well made and designed but my LEGO-verse has no place for a figure skater: there just isn’t enough snow!
