The Series 15 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71011) have been available worldwide for a while now and I’ve finally had time to do my review on it. Ever since I started collecting them back in Series 6, they’ve been getting better and better each series. Let’s see if Series 15 can live up to the hype when the official images came out.
There aren’t many LEGO farmer minifigures that have been released recently but fans were excited to see a new one in Series 15. He has some very nice printing of his overalls on both sides of the torso. The leg printing makes it seem like he’s wearing boots. The hat that the Farmer wears is a very good choice. His accessories include a pitchfork as well as a pig with new printing.
The Classic Space theme has been making cameoes the past few years and Space fans get a nice surprise with the new Astronaut minifigure. The printing for the suit has some great printing with gauges and whatnot as well as the Space logo. The arms even has some printing however the back is bare. He comes with a variety of parts including the oxygen tank and helmet with a pearl gold visor. The coolest part that the Astronaut has is the double-side printed Classic Space flag that can be very useful in other builds.
Next up is the Frightening Knight. He has a very knighty color scheme with the dark green and gray. The chainmail printing is isn’t too shabby and it goes all the way down to the legs. Even the arms have some armor printing as well. The face printing looks like he’s been through his share of battles. The knight wears a shoulder armor piece as well as a bucket helmet. His accessories include a spiked mace and a kite shield with a bear faction.
The Clumsy Guy sure look like he’s in need of some help as he seems like he has slipped on a banana peel as his torso shows. One of the legs is in a cast which has some tet well messages written on it. For the head, he has a black eye with a bandage on the chin. The head is wrapped up with a white head bandage as well. His accessories include a pair of new crutches.
The Tribal Woman has your typical Native American look with the torso and legs and she can easily be incorporated into those types of builds. The star of the this minifigure is the first ever baby figure and could arguably be the best part for Series 15. The baby can be attached to the bracket the Tribal Woman wears around the neck.
Another fantastic minifigure for this series is the Flying Warrior. He is decked out in a pearl gold armor outfit. Without the armor, the torso has a breastplate design but only on the front. The armor piece isn’t new but it’s used effectively with the Flying Warrior. There are clips used on the back to attach the wings. The head armor piece also has wings on the side to complement the look. His accessory is a golden spear.
When we first saw an image of the Faun, he immediately reminded me of Mr. Tumnus from The Chronicles of Narnia. The torso is pretty bland but it does have some curly chest hairs. The main focus of the Faun is actually on the new legs. The hair piece also has his pointy ears as well as the goat horns. His accessory is a flute which is often seen with this character.
Animal Control Officer
The next female minifigure in Series 15 is the Animal Control Officer. The torso is your standard officer shirt and the badge has a raccoon which is also on the sleeve of the shirt. She has a double-sided head with a nervous smile on one side and an uncomfortable look on the other. Her accessories include a large net as well as a new skunk piece.
The Janitor is pretty plain but also pretty accurate as he would make a great addition to any LEGO City. The outfit is a little dirty as his job entails. The legs also have some printing of a dirty hankerchief. His accessory is a new mop that is made up of two pieces.
Although the Ballerina isn’t as flashy as the minifigures we’ve seen so far in Series 15, she is a good change of pace. She wears the typical outfit you see ballerinas wear. The skirt piece is probably the hightlight of the minifigure. Her hair piece has some floral printing all around it.
The Laser Mech has a very sleek black and blue color scheme that works very well. The torso and legs have an interesting design print that kind of reminds me of TRON. The armor piece isn’t new but it now has a cool silver color to it however the trans-light blue wing pieces on the back are new. Finally the accessory for the Laser Mech is a blade that was used before in LEGO Ninjago sets.
The Kendo Fighter is seen wearing the typical kendo bogu outfit along with the dō breastplate. For the head, he has a headband with a stern look that matches the character very well. The men protective helmet is also included with the Kendo Fighter and is a recolor of the ones used in earlier Ninjago sets. His accessories include a couple of bamboo swords which are just recolors of the katanas we’ve seen before.
Shark Suit Guy
In every series of LEGO Collectible Minifigures, there has always been at least one character that’s in costume and Series 15 is no different. The Shark Suit Guy is another minifigure that may look familiar especially if you’re a football fan here in the US. We first saw similar characters from the Super Bowl XLIX where the sharks in Katy Perry’s Halftime Show although it’s purely a coincidence. The torso is fairly bland but the fins make him stand out. The shark body mold is absolutely fantastic with the angry look as well as minor details like the gills. Not surprisingly, the Shark Suit Guy is one, if not, the most popular minifigure from Series 15.
From just looking at the Wrestling Champion, he sure does look like the Ultimate Warrior from the WWF/WWE which was one of my favorite wrestlers I watched growing up. The torso has printing of the World Heavyweight Championship Belt which is reminiscent of the designs that the belts had before. The arms also have some printing over the biceps similar to what the Ultimate Warrior had. Finally to complete his look, he has the long mullet hair piece. His accessory is just the pearl gold trophy we’ve seen before.
The Jewel Thief wears a typical black outfit with the jumpsuit design. The head has some mask printing over the eyes with a smirking expression along with a mole on her face. The hair is from Black Widow however this one is black. Her accessories include a diamond jewel piece along with a grappling hook.
Finally, we have the Queen who matches up with the Classic King from Series 15 with the design and colors of her dress. The part that stands out the most for the Queen is the 4-stud wide dress piece which appears to be the bustle-style dress. The two cloth pieces that are also included is similar to the ones the King has. Her hair piece has a hole on the top to fit the crown piece.
I’ve said this before, but LEGO has continued to step up their game with the Collectible Minifigures theme and Series 15 (71011) does not disappoint. There are some minifigures that are more sought after than others but I see every single one of them having a place somewhere in the LEGO universe and in many MOCed themes. Which Series 15 minifigure is your favorite out of the bunch?
