LEGO Minifigures: Bagpiper Men with Kilts DO Wear Underwear

Pros:Excellent accessories; great new way to put on the kilt

Cons:Did we really need to see what's under the kilt?

The Bottom Line: Bagpiper from LEGO Minifigures Series 7 is really a great figure, though I hope no one gets scarred putting on the man's kilt.


Two things come to mind when I think of Scotland: haggis and bagpipes. While the former may be a bit harder to depict, the latter definitely makes its presence known in the LEGO Minifigures Series 7 collection as that loud playing Bagpiper will make people know he’s coming for miles.

I have to admit I was a bit confused as to which character I discovered until I started assembling the pieces together but I should have clued in quickly with all the plaid shown on this figure. The hat, bagpipes and kilt showcase this pattern with all three sporting different colour combinations: the hat is red and black, the bagpipes is green and black, and the kilt is a saturated green and red. All of these accessories fit onto the Bagpiper, who sports an elder Scotsman look complete with bushy white eyebrows and crow’s feet around his eyes.

The top half of his body has him wearing a white dress shirt with a black tie, vest and jacket. It makes him look distinguished and dignified. However, that last part may be questionable when you see that he is also sporting some tighty whiteys. Yes, it is official. Men with kilts do wear underwear underneath. Quite honestly, and I don’t know why, but seeing a LEGO character—an old man in particular—in his underwear just seems so wrong. It’s even punctuated with his knee high socks. Maybe this is a good start for that Chippendale LEGO figure.

The kilt is actually made out of fabric. It attaches onto the bottom half of the figure through the pegs that attaches itself to the body. It does wrap around so you have to find the right way of affixing onto the Bagpiper so he covers himself and looks decent. I have to admit that this is the most difficult task to do. I found it took a few tries just to get it on properly before I finally did it right. Also included is a black display stand.

Each figure comes in a blind package making it difficult to determine exactly which character will reveal itself. What is concerning to me is the price for these figures. These things have skyrocketed to an average of $3.99 in most places. There are a few places that are still $2.99 but that’s not going to last very long. In the end, with 16 characters in a series for $3.99 each, you will end up spending almost $64 for the entire thing if you are lucky to get all the characters on the first try. Buying a huge LEGO set for the same price almost seems like the better deal right now.

Once the Bagpiper is fully assembled he looks amazing. The accessories really do make the man. I like how the bagpipes fit in his hand and to give him that authenticity. I take that back. I think the revelation under the kilt does that job.
