  • Durability:

Pros:Nice accessories, sweet Lego hat, unique head peg.

Cons:Crappy stand, stenciled bling.

The Bottom Line: While not perfect, the rapper from the third mini figure series makes for an interesting addition to the street tam.





Lego has continued to impress me with the blind-pack mini figures. The rapper is an interesting addition to the third series and comes with some great accessories. He's the perfect addition to Lego City or Lego World scenes but can be used just about anywhere. We've had some debates over the stenciled detail on the torso. Is the band pattern around the waist, above the jeans, the band of his boxers showing or is it just another shirt under it? The stenciled detail is really nice and works well with the "$" bling on his chain. Of course the cap with mini Lego head logo on it simply makes the figure; this is the first time I've ever seen this so I have to assume it's a new item. The head peg has a nice Jersey styled vent stenciling with an open smile; the facial hair around the edges along with the eyebrows really makes the whole figure look rugged and give it a little but of a "bad boy" style. As a whole this is a great figure that can be used with a lot of scenes both past and present.

Lego Collectable Mini Figure Mystery Pack Series 3: Hula Dancer, Elf, Sumo Wrestler, Mummy, Space Alien, Space Villain, Tennis Player, Rapper, Samurai Warrior, Gorilla Suit, Race Car Driver, Snowboarder, Pilot, Tribal Chief, Baseball Player, Fisherman

There are some nice companion figures for the rapper; some of my personal favorites include the Punk Rocker, Skateboarder and Pop Star. You get a basic black display stand along with a really nice looking boom box with stenciled accents and a microphone. The texturing on the hat is a sweet added perk and since it's standard sized you can use it with other Lego mini figures. The blind-packs sell for two to four dollars; Five Below had the best price on them and I'm hoping that they get the newer series in stock soon. If you don't want duplicates you can use one of the "bar code cheat sheets" to figure out what's inside the pack or just feel around to see if you can tell what the accessories are. I ended up with two of these and plan on busting the extra use and using it for parts. If you're looking to make Jersey Shore Lego mini figures this is a good pick for any of the guys. While there might not be a ton of compatible pieces in the series, there are a lot of things you can do with this character. The torso and leg pieces can be swapped out to make custom figures and the baseball hat is an amazing piece. I would have loved it if this were done in flesh instead of classic yellow; I'm hoping they'll introduce some flesh colored characters in future installments.
