FOREST FIREMAN

cty287 - Fireman

My newest acquisition and my first post for Ministry of Minifigs! This blog is an excuse for me to write about my minifig collecting habits.

This chipper fellow is from the highly detailed 4427 Fire ATV mini set from the 2012 City / Forest line-up. I ‘accidentally’ purchased mine after mistaking it for a box-ish looking potato whilst shopping for groceries…strange but true.

Mr cty287’s decals are intricate although the level of detail drops around his pants (how embarrassing!), making the overall design a little top-heavy. This said, his utility belt, upper-torso detail, headgear and rough-and-ready expression somewhat make up for the design inconsistencies.

The (not-very) reflective strips reference the conventional fireman design although once removed from his set pieces, this guy seems to signify hazmat more than fire dude. Nonetheless, this minifigure presents a bold and bright revision of a classic city type.
