In the spirit of being festive for Christmas, I’ll be looking at something vaguely Christmas related. It’s another figure from LEGO’s Minifigures line. This time depicting everyone’s favorite Christmas themed cookie (okay, maybe not everyone’s) : The Gingerbread Man
THE FIGURE ITSELF
The Gingerbread Man is the 2nd figure in the 11th series of the LEGO Minifigures line. He uses the traditional LEGO body, but he has a specially sculpted head in place of the usual piece. It’s a really cool piece, and looks perfect for its intended use. The Gingerbread man is molded in a creamy brown color, and has detailing to represent his icing details. In addition to the icing, he’s also got a slightly darker brown detailing to show the texture of the gingerbread he’s made from. It’s a subtle effect, and could have easily been left out, but the extra mile really adds to the figure. The Gingerbread Man includes a mug and a LEGO stand. The mug has painted letters that read “DUNK ME!” which is another really cool touch.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
I picked the Gingerbread Man up along with several others from the same series from a bookstore at the beach while vacationing. I think he’s really cool, and is definitely a shining example what LEGO can do with the line.
