The hat is packed in a separate bag, inside the main bag :

Very good looking and well printed with its crowned belt. Both torso and head are printed on both sides. Great !  :thumbup:

Dear sir you have brought a wonderful light to my day and I am very happy. That Jester's smiling hopefully $2.50 face will brighten up my castle life.

Thank you for the review daoudbazaar! This set is certainly worth picking up. :thumbup:  

I have to say though, that last picture of the jester is depressing as hell. :laugh:

Great photos! It's always nice to have another jester (could be a long lost brother of the Crownies one :tongue: )

Thanks for the review, good pictures :thumbup: . I might get this set and it is small and of course cheap compared to the big sets. :thumbup:

Thanks for this wonderful review, the clarity of your pics is top-notch. I'll probably buy 2-4 of these. $5.50 isn't a bad price so I should be able to afford them :classic:
I'm not a teacher or anything but I've got a feeling you would do really good in the Reviewers Academy :thumbup:

Thanks for the good review with nice pictures! They are very 'appetizing', if you know what I mean. This set is definitely a must-buy, and probably a nice present for small kids (maybe even girls) in the family.

Thanks for sharing this review! Great pics!  :thumbup:
I quite like the two sided face.
It's a great impulse for sure, however, I would have preferred something for army building like the Pirate impulses  :tongue:
The chance to get an army of jesters isn't that high, so I doubt that people will buy more than a few two of these...

Great review - thanks for that. I've ordered mine from Lego.com, along with a few other things, which should hopefully arrive soon!
