Series 20 is a return to form for the Collectible Minifigure Series, with many a minifigure offering broad appeal, genuine novelty and fun design. The LEGO Group continues to veer into derivative territory, but not at the expense of the overall collection available here, nor to the detriment of the particular minifigures clearly inspired by material elsewhere. A strong series with little else to criticise, this will be a classic in future years.
Following an earlier attempt in the fourth series of Collectable Minifigures, the modern Viking seems more historically accurate than his predecessor. His helmet lacks the anachronistic horns which have become associated with Viking armour, instead featuring a spectacle guard. This definitely resembles archaeological evidence and includes an attachment point for a plume on the central ridge.
At $4.99 a pop, it's hard to get too excited about any of them. It's one thing to swallow the higher price for a solo figure when they're licensed Disney or Harry Potter characters, but paying $5 per figure for a blind pack of an unlicensed minifigure seems excessive (many of which have only a single accessory). Even if you get no duplicates (which will mean feeling the bags or splitting a case with a few friends) you'll need to shill out $80 to get the full set. My recommendation? Wait until these inevitably go on clearance.
