WORST Collectible Minifigure of All Time
Similarly, to figure out which Collectible Minifigure is the worst of all time, I spent a bit of time narrowing the list down to three.
Why the Series 6 Minotaur?
The Minotaur appears to be an attempt at introducing a minifigure-scaled baddie to go with the warrior-type figures (Spartan, Elf etc.), so I can understand it being part of the line-up… I just think a minotaur would be better suited as a large figure than a minifigure. I’m more unimpressed by the figure’s execution.
Why the Series 8 Pirate Captain?
My original nomination was for the Series 1 Diver, but when it came to giving an explanation I couldn’t think of a single reason why it was worse than the Pirate Captain. This minifigure is ugly, and I don’t even like to use that word. There is nothing redeeming about it whatsoever. And the worst part? It comes in sixes!
Why the Series 10 Tomahawk Warrior?
The Tomahawk Warrior makes the list due to the frustration when looking for Mr Gold in a fresh (and especially rifled-through) box of figures. That tomahawk will get you every time if you’re not careful, and you’ll more than likely feel like you’ve gotten a lemon.
And the winner is…
I don’t like the other two figures, but including the Pirate Captain in the line-up – given how it looks, and the fact there’s six of them in a box – was plain wrong. I’m fine with having pirates, but too many captains rock the boat. Don’t ever let me catch you doing that BS again, LEGO.
