Lego Minifigures Series 6 (8827) Skater GirlSo, here I am again standing in a toy shop squishing the sealed foil mystery packs of Lego Minifigures in order to apprehend my most wanted little Lego person. Yes, Lego Minifigures Series 6 is now in all good toy shops, [and online from Amazon] again 16 original new characters have been created for children to collect, trade and play with.

For the record, The Toy Detective was on the look-out for the skater girl in this series; and yes, I was lucky. I wanted the skater girl for two reasons. Firstly, she has a great outfit which makes me think she’s a fan of Electo-Industrial music (and possibly a band named Terminal Choice). Secondly, I’ve a couple of the skateboarder figures from series one (definite Combichrist fan), so they’ll look good side-by-side.

I wouldn’t have been disappointed, if upon opening the packaging, I received a different figure; there are many desirable toy figurines in the range, including: an alien, a leprechaun, a surgeon and a butcher with an uncanny resemblance to a character in a BBC comedy series called The League of Gentlemen – to name but a few.

Being famous as a construction toy means that, of course, each Lego Minifigure needs to be put to together. A simple job (involving around half a dozen pieces), unless for some unknown reason you lack any knowledge of the anatomy of human beings; or any two-legged creature, be it real, mythical or alien.

Priced at £1.99, this toy continues to be a pleasing pocket money purchase that should enjoy a long life of play or display amongst aficionados of the plastic brick.
