Minifigure: #3 of 20 – Clock King
Released: January 1, 2018
Logic would dictate that with the series having twenty figures and the boxes in the store having 60 packs, that you would find three full sets in a box. Real quick math leads you to having even odds on finding all of the figures equally. That doesn’t seem to be the case as Clock King is one of the harder figures to find for whatever reason. Perhaps its because he is one of the nicer looking figures. Check out what we’re talking about.
The headpiece is similar to the head used for the Gingerbread Man figure of previous releases. The molding is in a great blue color, and the printing on the front is beautiful. The black on white really pops against the blue. But that’s secondary to the green cloth cape, hands, and printing on the torso, hips, and legs. The green printing lines up wonderfully on the lower portion of the torso, hips, and legs to shape a belt and underpants. Yet, the printing at the top of the torso to facilitate a tied blanket below the neck seems rather unnecessary with the way that the cloth of the actual cape lays.
Then there’s the the printing of the black and white clocks on the front and back of the torso and legs, and down the arms that look crisp and fantastic. And the green underpants-stylized printing continues around the back. The figure comes with two black spears that serve as the hands of a clock and his weapons, which are a nice touch; thematically. And to top it all off, the figure stands on the same baseplate that all of the figures come with in this series.
Overall, there isn’t much to speak of beyond this figure. The spears are pretty abundant in other sets. While the figure is exclusive, you’d be hard pressed to find ways to use him or accessories as a specialized MOC. Alternatively, this is a minifigure in a collectors series, and that’s how this particular figure is supposed to be used. He’s one of the standouts in this series, hands down.
