Hello everyone! For my first review, I will review set 8805 Collectible Minifigures Series 5.

Set Number and Name: 8805 Collectible Minifigures Series 5

Theme: Collectible Minifigures

Year: 2011

Pieces: 105 for each figure counted once

Minifigs: 16

Price: $2.99 USD, $1.92 GBP, $3.05 CAD, $2.99 AUD, $2.35 EUR

I now bring you all the packet view for the Series. The packets are opaque, light blue, and must be identified by feel method or bump codes on the back.

The checklist is also light blue, and the order I will review the minifigs will be in pamphlet order.

002.jpg

Here is the reverse view of the pamphlet.

1. The Graduate

003.jpg

The Graduate here seems really excited to finally recieve his diploma. I mean, he has gone through twelve grueling years of school. :tongue:

The disappointing thing is, I had to go to a store that labels the packets to get him, then, when I went to Toys' R' Us, I found hundreds of him! :thumbdown:

Piece Assortment

108.jpg

Here are all of of the pieces together. Note that the hat is new.

2. The Gladiator

gladiator.jpg

The Gladiator is wearing a brand-new exclusive helmet, which is an amazing piece, as well as his new sword. He also has side printing on the arms and legs, shown below.

007.jpg

Here is the back of the helmet as well.

008.jpg

Piece Assortment

006.jpg

Here you can see the face more clearly. The shield is bland but still usable.

3. The Royal Guard

009.jpg

This stern guard is surely going to make you think twice about messing with him. I believe that he is very close to the real-life guard, so I am excited to have this figure.

Piece Assortment

010.jpg

Here, you can see that the chinstrap goes to the top of the head, and a clearer view of his hat.

4. The Ice Fisherman

eskimo.jpg

Here is the freezing man himself, but he is definitely excited for his amazing catch of the day. He definitely shows what I imagine when I think of an Eskimo. He even comes with a new hood that will be used in the 2012 Star Wars Advent Calendar.

Piece Assortment

012.jpg

There is nothing terribly exciting here. Just a better look at his parka hood.

5. The Cavewoman

013.jpg

This Cavewoman was all I was raving about when I first saw this series. Unfortunately, then, I didn't have her companion. Now I do, and they look gorgeous together.

Piece Assortment

075.jpg

Here, you can see her expression is saying "Really? Was that necessary, honey?" Her hair is new, and is a rubber, soft plastic piece. Below is a side view, and a back view to show her back printing, and the side of her hair and legs.

015.jpg

016.jpg

076.jpg

"I love you honey"

6. The Lizard Man

017.jpg

Grrrrr! This menacing monster is going to eat you! Or at least that's what he says at birthday parties. All jokes aside, this adorable minifigure is definitely a fan favorite. He is a great fig to own.

Piece Assortment

114.jpg

The mask and tail are new pieces, and I love how happy he is to be in the suit. Below are side and back views of the tail.

018.jpg

019.jpg

7. The Zookeeper

004.jpg

This kind woman is making sure that all of the animals in her zoo are all right.

Piece Assortment

024.jpg

There is nothing too exciting, just a recolored ponytail, and interesting prints. The banana is always good to have, and the monkey is amazing. Below is the zookeeper without the monkey, and a view of the monkey. She even has a "zoo" badge on her left shoulder.

106.jpg

023.jpg

8. The Lumberjack

lumberjack.jpg

Doesn't this kind lumberjack look so excited? Well, he is about to cut down his biggest tree yet.

Piece Assortment

026.jpg

Here, you can see his stubbled face, and notice that he comes with an axe. Below is a picture of his axe, side, back, and a picture with a shadowy face, but is meant to show a clearer torso.

Back View

Torso Shot

028.jpg

9. The Small Clown

031_edited-1.jpg

This Small Clown is a great companion for the S1 Clown. He looks more like a circus clown than the first clown, which is good, because I think that the first clown looks like a balloon-animal making clown.

Piece Assortment

032.jpg

The small clown comes with a new pie and a bowler hat. He also has green "kid legs" to make him short.

10. The Fitness Instructor

103.jpg

When I first saw this figure, I thought that she was slightly creepy. I felt ashamed when I had to buy a second one because the first one had a lot of printing problems.

Piece Asortment

104.jpg

I don't have much use for this minifigure, and it seems almost like a filler. It is a let-down in my opinion, but she can be used for some interesting pictures as shown closer to the end.

11. The Detective

036.jpg

Overall, I am slightly disappointed with this figure. I would have liked a little extra printing on him, but he is all right. Besides that, he looks like he is ready to solve any case thrown at him.

Piece Assortment

074.jpg

He has sideburns going all the way to the top of his head, and his magnifying glass isn't new, but still is useful.

12. The Evil Dwarf

038.jpg

This Evil Dwarf looks like he is ready for battle. He is fully equipped, and his lengthy beard makes everything more evil.

Piece Assortment

039.jpg

There are a lot of pieces in this one. They are all new to me, but the beard and the axe pieces. I would've preferred a new double axe piece, because this one looks uneven. Here is a look at his torso.

040.jpg

13. The Boxer

041.jpg

This Boxer is ready to knock the stuffing out of you! He is a great figure, and I bet most people love him, too.

Piece Assortment

112.jpg

Here are the Boxer's pieces; he has a new sparring helmet. The gloves are their own pieces, as well. Below is his dual expression, which is in case his match isn't so successful.

Dual Expression

043.jpg

14. The Egyptian Queen

044.jpg

This Egyptian beauty is a must-have for all minifigure collectors to own. She has a variety of new pieces and detail.

Piece Assortment

045.jpg

Her hairpiece is new, and she has a brand-new dress slope. She also comes with a snake, which I don't have many of, so that is welcomed.

15. The Gangster

113.jpg

This minifigure is dangerous during the night. :tongue: He is also full of detail, especially on the face, with some new parts here and there.

Piece Assortment

047.jpg

His violin case is new, and his prints are highly detailed. Other than that, I don't have much to say about him.

16. The Snowboarder Guy

049.jpg

This Snowboarder highly compliments the Series 3 one, and is a great figure to own.

Piece Assorthent

050.jpg

There aren't any new pieces, but all of the brand new prints are welcomed.

The Snowboard on its own

051.jpg

The Verdict

Design: "A" There are plenty of new designs, and they are great, too.

Playability: "B" If you don't have a set to go with it, or a corresponding minifig, it may be hard to play with.

Price: "A" The price is cheaper than the BAM at the LEGO store, so I am fine with it.

Overall: "A" This is an excellent set for a cheap budget, and I reccommend it to anyone and everyone.

Final Grade: The majority of my verdict Gives this set an "A" grade.

"The Figgy Awards"

052.jpg

Jessica: "Hello, I am Jessica Furnish, and this is Brad Roces, and welcome to the first ever 'Figgy Awards'!"

Brad: " Thanks, Jessica, let's start off with Most Detailed

J: "And the nominees are:

053.jpg

055.jpg

Leslie(The Fitness Dancer):"How come we aren't nominees?!

J: "Oh, puh-lease, you call that stylish?! Get out of here!"

L:"Never!"

B: "While they are fighting, let's meet our nominees for Best Dressed Male!"

059.jpg

"It's the Small Clown and the Snowboarder Guy!

And finally, the Best new Headgear section. the nominees involve all new head gears, except for two.

060.jpg

With honorable mentions, the Detective's cap, and the Royal Guard's helmet!
