Minifigure: #8 of 20 – Vacation Robin
Released: January 1, 2018
This is one of the lesser minifigures of the second wave. The hairpiece with the green-lensed glasses attached is the same that we’ve gotten before. It’s able to be used with other figures if you wish, but it’s so connected to this character that it would be hard to not confuse your own LEGO citizens with Robin, himself.
He does have that fun little surprised print on his face, but we’ve gotten that before. The star of this figure is the torso print. It’s a perfect little vacation print that can be used on anyone, of any gender in your city. The lines are crisp. The colors are clear. It’s wonderful.
And the dual molded legs are fine. Such molding allows for the line between colors to be sharp, and there’s no printing. So, again, the legs pieces can be used on other characters. However, there’s nothing really to stand out about them. We’ve gotten the parts to make ice cream cones all of the times, and that boombox we’ve gotten before.
But before you start commenting angrily, the printing on this boombox is certainly different. The speakers have spots printed to denote texture and instead of the mp3 player printed on The LEGO Ninjago Movie’s Cole’s, Vacation Robin has a tape deck. That’ll be a fun little item to have featured at your skate parks, but you could easily just get that part on the secondary market. Yet, if the price gets too high there and you have great feeling in your fingertips, if you want this boombox, or this minifigure, they aren’t hard to feel out through the blind bag.
There’s a secondary face printed on the back. It’s a face. There isn’t really anything noteworthy. And of course, the baseplate is there in black with the yellow batsymbol printing. We promise to have more exciting things to look at coming up next time; when we look at things like The Old Fishing Store, Downtown Diner, or more LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures. Whatever it is, we invite you to join us at The Big Kid’s Table.
