The LEGO ‘Minifigures’ theme aka ‘Collectible Minifigures’ was first released in May 2010. Each series in the theme has 16 minifigures, sold separately in blind polybags. The seventh series is scheduled for a May 2012 release.
This Leto-eque Punk Rocker comes from LEGO Minifigures Series 4 (8804) which was released in 2011 and he came with a black and silver electric guitar.
PUNK ROCKER (COL052)
This guy comes with a rubbery hot pink / magenta mohawk, black-base torso coupled with light blue legs and hips.
The torso has an Ed Hardy style rose and skull design, the hips have a studded black and silver belt, and his ‘jeans’ are held together with a silver chain, some thread and five safety pins. The face shows a confident expression with thick black eyebrows, open mouth and white-pupilled eyes.
This figure has some unique punk-ish style if you are into that sort of thing. The bold colour palette works well and makes this figure stand out. The facial expression is spot on, not to cartoonish but not too serious. The 75-stud belt (yes, I counted them!) is a nice detail. The mohawk is well…pretty awesome. The tattoo-like torso design is also carefully designed.
No back printing which lets him down a bit, perhaps they could have added some tour dates on the back? 😉
This is a pretty unique figure and hopefully one day we might see him in his own theme! [Added to the Hall of Minifigures]
