Happy Friday, guys! Hope everyone is having a great day so far.
Today we are going to take a look at the new Lego Minifigures Series 22 Racoon Costume Fan!
If you are nerds like us, you probably had a hunch that the Racoon Costume Fan might have some striking similarities with the Fox Costume Girl from Series 19. So let’s take a look!
The first surprise with the Racoon Costume Fan is that it comes with a hair piece! We were not expecting that at all!
It turns out, this racoon character is an old lady! Who knew?
As usual, the minifigure comes with 2 faces. It also comes with 2 accessories: a dumpster and a white sack.
Let’s compare this cool minifigure with the Fox Costume Girl from Lego Minifigures Series 19.
As you might have guessed, the head piece is essentially identical in shape, but different in color and paint patterns.
The same goes with the tail piece.
Here’s the comparison side by side:
From a business standpoint, we think Lego did the smart move here. They didn’t have to create a new mold for a new head piece or the tail piece. They were creative enough with the coloring and the paint job, to create a different character from the same pieces!
Let’s take a closer look at this old lady dressed as a racoon!
We love that she can either be laughing or smiling.
We are still hunting for the rest of Lego Minifigures Series 22. What about you? Have you been able to find them in the wild? Comment below!
