LEGO Collectable Minifigures: Egyptian Pharaoh Minifigure (Series 2) (Bagged)
About this deal
Minifigures Series 13 (71008) is a series of minifigures released in 2015 and contained 16 minifigures. I sat next to my son and passed him the bits for each step and he had no problem putting the kit together over the course of two evenings. LEGO Adventurers had everything you could ever wish for in a set, especially the original Egyptian one. The crown of the tree uses dark tan, green and bright green plant leaves to indicate the lifespan of a palm tree leaf. As a child I always played with egyptian lego sets and I belive that even today this fantastic world can be a source of inspiration of exciting adventures!
After watching a fantastic series following Egyptian archeology and discoveries, I learned of the ancient game of Senet. And so, in no time whatsoever, the pyramid was built, the scorpion was suitably menacing, the traps were set, the treasures hidden, the bad guys waiting with the kind of patience one expects of the plastic undead, and the heroes were ready to storm the pyramid, ably assisted by a Lego Han Solo because hey, when you're facing a Giant Scorpion, you need all the firepower you can get.
While not as many sets this time as the Egypt theme, it still proved popular enough to keep the sets coming.
The sets were unique in that three of the larger sets came with game cards and pieces of the board game. The first, set 5956 Expedition Balloon, an excellent idea for a set which incorporated the brick container (shaped like a zeppelin balloon) as part of the build. A mysterious stranger has stolen all the new minifigures’ treasured belongings – and he’s about to get away with it! Some unique features included were the tan moulded baseplate which was well detailed for the period and a fold up tent.
One of Batman’s staunchest allies, the hard-working Commissioner Gordon™ has spent his entire long career cleaning up the streets of Gotham City. While at the time no explanation was given, we can only assume that at one stage these were in separate polybags.
