Today we have a new review for a fairly older product. Way back in September of 2013, we reported on a new LEGO Shop Employee Minifigure (5001622) polybag that was given out with [email protected] orders around that time. Now fast forward to the present time. If you made a $75 purchase last November or December, you would’ve received a free LEGO 2015 Wall Calendar which also included coupons to redeem this year for previously exclusive minifigures. For January, you can redeem the LEGO Shop Minifigure with any purchase.
The minifigure is the same one that you see prominently displayed on LEGO [email protected]. He wears a black long-sleeved shirt with grey stripes across the arms and waist. He also has a name badge printing as well. The legs are plain black. For the head, he has a smiling expression. The reddish brown hair is spiky and is similar to the Sleepyhead from the Series 6 Collectible Minifigures (8827). What’s different about this promotional minifigure polybag from others is that it also includes a red 2×4 brick. This brick represents the big one that you usually see standing at LEGO Brand Stores.
Overall, the LEGO Shop Employee Minifigure (5001622) is a nice promotional polybag for both when it showed up unexpectedly with orders back in 2013 as well as now with the coupon. It makes a great minifigure if you’re making a LEGO Store MOC. If you missed out on it or aren’t able to get one because you don’t have the coupon from the 2015 Wall Calendar, there’s still BrickLink and eBay.
