In recent years, LEGO has released some peculiar standalone sets featuring some past minifigures. It started off with the Iconic Easter (5004468) set with the Chicken Suit Guy then last year with the Gingerbread Man (5005156). Starting tomorrow, LEGO kicks off a new promotion that runs until the end of August which will feature the Iconic Cave Caveman & Cavewoman (5004936). You can get it for free with a purchase of $50 or more at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected].
The packaging is fairly interesting. Throughout the whole box, there are various things that are carved into the stone wall including a minifigure blueprint on the back. Also on the back is a lost poster of their supposed pet dinosaur. The door is perforated and it opens to reveal the Caveman and Cavewoman.
The Caveman was first introduced in the Series 1 Collectible Minifigures (8683). For this version, he has a pelt outfit that is more brown than before but unfortunately like before, there is no back printing. He has the same head with the bushy eyebrows and large smile. His hair/beard piece, however, is different with the new Caveman having a dark brown piece. His accessory is a dark brown club.
The Cavewoman was also from a previous Collectible Minifigures series (Series 5 – 8805) and like the Caveman, she has a similar design pattern from before. For the new version, she has a brown outfit with tan outlines. Like before, the hair piece is a soft rubber mold but this one is brown instead of red. There’s also a bone that can be clipped on the front. Her accessory is also a dark brown club.
Overall, the LEGO Iconic Cave Caveman & Cavewoman (5004936) is a decent promotional set if you don’t have the previous versions of these particular minifigures. Even if you have them already, these newer ones are technically exclusive so it’s somewhat of an incentive to pick these ones up too. Again, it is available from August 10-31 with a $50 purchase, while supplies last.
