So what is MiniFigPak I hear you ask? Well its an Australian paid subscription ($17.95/per month), this time in the guise of three random Lego minifigures sent to your door every month. All minifigures are genuine Lego with no additional accessories or custom parts, so no need to panic about contaminating our treasured Lego trove.
For those subscribed and awaiting your MiniFigPak – Spoiler alert you may wish to park this review for a later date.
As always MiniFigPak never disappoint on the vibrant packaging, which really draws you in to the excitement of receiving three new and random Lego minifigures. The theme usually follows the rule of 1 x city, 1 x licensed and 1 x other minifigure.
The first minifigure is the Imperial Admiral’s Daughter from Pirates II. She was released in 2009 in the Lego set 6243 Brickbeard’s Bounty. I have to admit that the Pirate theme was never really a favourite of mine, but there is no denying the detail on her torso is superb. On a side note she also offers me a alternative outfit for my Queen minifigure from series 15.
Next in line is W. Wald from the extremely successful Star Wars theme. He was released in 2011 in the Lego set 7962 Anakin Skywalker and Sebulba’s Podracers. His head mold is unique and only used on one other Star Wars minifigure (Greedo I think). Personally I’m extremely happy to get this little dude and he will take pride and place in my son’s Lego Star Wars themed room.
Lastly we have Green Futuron from Lego City. He was released in 2015 in the Lego set 60097 City Square and is actually the statue at the Lego store (playing homage to the late 80’s early 90’s Futuron space theme). Anything space and you have me hooked! Torso printing is great and has been slightly modernized with the finer detail on the zip and belt line.
Overall I’m extremely happy with the selection of minifigures in the June pack. Considering the price point I think this is relatively affordable way to bring a little bit of random Lego happiness into your heart each month. All I need now is more shelf space to accommodate my ever growing army of minifigures! Another competition anyone?
For those interested – MiniFigPak still have some packs available for July (nominally 200 packs available each month).
