I love this minifigure! He is a fantastic homage to one of the classic LEGO minifigures, and looks fabulous. I don't have any complaints with him – I just wish he was more widely available than one per box.
To conclude, the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 18 has continued successfully surprised us with another new level of design creativity.
I'm a sucker for retro/vintage LEGO, so I really love what LEGO have done with the 1978 Police Officer, especially how they weaved him into a series that celebrates 40 years of LEGO minifigures.
For me, my favorites of Series 18 are the Party Clown, Dragon Suit Guy, Birthday Cake Guy, Race Car Guy, and Cowboy Costume Guy. The LEGO Brick Suit costumes are interesting and I do like how they are able to connect to other bricks.
With each new series of LEGO Minifigures, the LEGO Design Team seem to outdo themselves and you would expect them to have run out of ideas, but they have come out swinging for the 40th anniversary of the Minifigure. The new elements are great and it will be interesting to see where they appear next. The additional of an orange baseplate is definitely welcomed although it would of been nice to have the LEGO Minifigures 40th anniversary logo printed on it or even included in a tile. Despite a few minor gripes, this series of LEGO Minifigures is a fitting and fun way to celebrate the 40th anniversary and it's always nice to have a non-licensed series after so many recent ones being based on movies.
Frankly, this is exactly the sort of character that LEGO should make rare (that is, assuming that they actually need to make any character super rare). The Police Officer definitely isn't designed to appeal to kids (look at just about any current City set for a more interesting police figure). Instead, it's designed to appeal directly to adult collectors...and so having it be rare isn't the worst thing in the world. In fact, as a kid I'd be disappointed getting this minifigure as compared to just about any other figure in the set! As an adult, I love the vintage LEGO "set" the figure holds in the printed piece but otherwise there isn't much here besides mental nostalgia for the olden days.
Series 18 isn't the first series to feature costumed characters. That began with Series 3's Gorilla Suit Guy, who is arguably the first “minifigure in a costume.” Throughout the CMF's history, the costumed characters have been among the most popular, especially with kids, and this series finally indulges costume fans by putting nearly all of its characters in some sort of suit. In keeping with the festive style, this is also the first regular series to use non-black minifigure stands, featuring orange unprinted stands with all of the characters.
I love many of the accessories and head pieces included with this series, but my favourite would be the tile that comes with the young boy: it is printed with as small a representation as you could come up with to be a representation of the packet that the series one figures appeared in years ago. Also up there would have to be the balloon animals. As for my favourite figures? it is a toss up for me between the cowboy, the dragon and the two figures dressed up as LEGO Bricks!
Forty years have passed since 600 Police Car, from which this figure takes inspiration, was released and it is wonderful to see the classic smile making a return alongside a torso which is printed with nothing more than a row of buttons and a badge.
In our opinion the LEGO Minifigures Series 18 collection is the best that's been released and we're sure many of our readers will agree. With so many unique minifigures and a costume party vibe, they will be fun to play with and display.
