The Series 19 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71025) are now widely available and we can finally take a deeper look at this newest series in the popular theme. LEGO has gone back to its roots and there are only 16 to collect with no special limited edition minifigures.
Video Game Champ
When you first look at him, he kind of reminds you of a certain pro gamer named Ninja. The torso shows him wearing a a light blue jacket with a gray shirt. The jacket is filled with little Easter egg logos including Classic Space, Blacktron, and M-Tron. The legs has printing of an orange keychain of a Space Invader. He has a double-sided head with a confident look on one side and a perplexed look on the other. He has bright green hair with a headset molded on. His accessories include a wireless controller and a Play-Bo Space Game 2×3 tile featuring the Cyborg from Series 16.
I feel the Shower Guy is probably the most boring character out of this wave but he does have some interesting details. The torso shows him shirtless while the legs have some printing of bubbles covering up his manhood. Luckily he has a cloth towel piece that is decorated with some rubber ducks going around it. His double-sided head shows him with a happy expression on one side and an embarassed look on the other. His accessories include a brush, a green rubber duck, and a shower cap on his head.
The Fright Knight were part of the Castle theme from the late 90s and this version of the knight shows it as a ghost. It does wear some chainmail on the torso with a shiny armor piece on top of it. The head is has a light shade of blue with a scary smiling expression. The helmet has a tran-light blue plume on top. The accessories are top-notch with the tran-light blue sword and the shield showing the slightly updated Basil the Bat Lord symbol.
The Monkey King, aka Sun Wukong, is probably my favorite minifigure out of this wave. Considering that I grew up watching the Journey to the West movies and TV shows, he was the only definite want on my list when images of the minifigures were released. He wears a metallic gold armor with some nice details on both sides of the torso. He also has a shoulder armor piece along with a cape to finish his outfit. He has a double-sided head with a serious look on one side and a mischievous smile on the other. The hair piece looks great with his ears molded on to the sides. The phoenix feather on top of the head was first used on Hanzo in the Overwatch set. His Rúyì Jīn Gū Bàng is just a couple of pearl-gold lightsaber hilts on a bar. I wish he came with a cloud plate to make him perfect.
The Programmer wears a black shirt with some binary numbers that spell out the word LEGO. The legs has some printing of a red plaid jacket wrapped around the waist. Her double-sided head shows her with a smile on one side and a smirk on other side. The hair piece is sort of a beehive hairdo with the braids bunched up at the top. Her accessories include a laptop and a little robot. The base of the robot uses the Overwatch blaster turned upside-down and the 1×2 round plates are attached to the side. The head uses a printed 1×1 brick which looks cute or scary depending on how you look at it.
The Mummy Queen looks pretty cool with a tattered white wrapping all around. The front of the torso shows a big collar with a blue scarab beetle necklace. The arms have some printing of gold armbands and teal bracelets to enhance her look instead of just having white wrappings. The legs are dual-molded with some brown wrapping going around the upper part. The head is double-sided with her golden death mask on one side and a gruesome mummified look on the other. The headdress is mostly teal with some printing on the front. Her accessory is a golden scorpion.
We all know that the Jungle Explorer is really Johnny Thunder from the Adventure theme. The torso is very detailed with a dark tan shirt with a red bandanna and some rope going across the chest. The legs are dual-molded but looks pretty plain with some pockets. He only has a single-sided head showing him with a curly mustache and thick sideburns. His accessories include a cowboy hat and a large backpack with holding a working magnifying glass. There is also a new green chameleon that is included with him.
The Fire Fighter wears a black outfit with a reflective safety vest. It’s nothing too interesting but it does have nice details with the fire symbol on the back. She has a double-sided head with a content look on one side and shouting expression on the other. The hair piece has her helmet molded on to it. Her accessory is a white microphone with the fire symbols printed on.
The Dog Sitter wears some blue overalls over a striped white shirt. The legs are dual-molded and even has printing of her sneakers. Her double-sided head shows her with a very happy expression on one side and a disgusted look on the other because of something you’ll see later. The hair piece has her blue cap molded on to the ponytail. Her accessories include a white Frenchie as well as brown Dachshund. Both look very cute but included with them is a brown ice cream piece to represent some dog poop. Luckily the Dog Sitter has a green shovel to pick it up.
Pizza Costume Guy
He has a plain green shirt with some decorated red pants. The main thing here is the pizza wedge slice that is recolored from the Watermelon Dude from a few series ago. He has a single-sided head with a somewhat nervous expression. His accessory is a 2×3 printed tile of a flyer of some food.
Galactic Bounty Hunter
There are only a few minifigures from Series 19 that could be considered army builders and the Galactic Bounty Hunter is one of them. The armor that it wears has a metallic silver on the front and back of the torso as well as on the legs. The center of the torso has the iconic Blacktron symbol. It also has a black shoulder armor which was first seen from Ninjago. The head shows a blue faced character with an evil smile. The helmet has been seen before the in an Ant-Man set but it looks pretty cool in black and silver. His accessory is a blaster and a trans-red book cover piece to show a screen of a generic wanted minifigure that is worth quite a lot.
The Gardener has a very colorful outfit with the purple floral shirt and spotted blue legs. Since she is a gardener, her hands have been replaced by lime green garden gloves. The head is pretty detailed with her wearing some blue eyeliner and red glasses. She also has a beehive hairstyle that is lavender colored. Her accessories include a green plant and a flamingo lawn ornament.
The Rugby Player is also one of the characters from this wave that could be considered an army builder. He wears a green and white uniform and is on the team with the mountain logo. He has a double-sided head with one side showing a scruffy yet normal smile while the other shows him battered up with some broken teeth. The dark green helmet is similar to the older football helmets. His accessory is a Rugby Supreme ball that could possibly be used as a regular football in the future.
Fox Girl Costume
The Fox Girl Costume was seen for a short time in The LEGO Movie 2 and it was pretty much a given that she would be appearing as an official minifigure sooner or later. The torso and legs are pretty plain but there is some white fur printing on the front of the torso. She also has a tail piece that goes between the torso and legs. The double-sided head shows her with a smirk on one side and a lip licking expression on the other. The fox helmet mold that goes over her head looks really nice. Her accessories include a chicken and sack, presumably used to carry said chicken.
Bear Costume Guy
The Bear Costume Guy is a very interesting character. He’s very colorful with a white torso with a rainbow heart on the chest and coral and yellow arms and yellow and blue hands. The legs also have the same color scheme. The double-sided head shows him with some happy expressions but the bear helmet covers up everything besides the eyes. His accessories include a rainbow tile piece and a heart tile.
Lastly we have the Mountain Biker who has on a coral colored shirt with a tire tread printing going across the chest. The legs have some blue shorts with some kneepads. She has a double-sided head with a smirk on one side and the other has the shades on. The green helmet also has her hair molded on. Her accessory is a blue mountain bike with some flame orange wheels.
Overall the Series 19 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71025) is another wave that proves why this theme is a successful one year in and year out. The variety of them is a reason why fans love to collect them.figures that could reside within LEGO City alongside more fantastical designs. Personally my favorites out of this wave are the Monkey King and the Galactic Bounty Hunter but I also really like some of the accessories from various characters like the video game controller and the dogs.
They are now available for $3.99 each but it looks like LEGO will soon be selling a complete box in the near future if you don’t want to feel for them. There are three complete sets per box and there are no limited ones so that’s a win for collectors.
