Tomopop Review: Minifigures.com Freddie Mercury

0

DAAAAAH Di Dah Dah!

A few weeks ago I was able to do a story on Minifigures, an England-based website where you could buy celebrity LEGO figures. I was happy to see that Queen frontman Freddie Mercury was one of the figures you could buy.

I became a fan of Queen directly as a result of the Wayne's World movie that was released back in 1992, shortly after Freddie's death from AIDS. I was drawn not only by the large bombastic sound, but also the image the band portrayed, and the creativity they showed. Ever since then I've called them my favorite musical act of all time. To say they hold a special place in my mind is an understatement.

Well, through the magic of Tomopop, I was surprised to have a package delivered to my door with a little friend inside!

Figure Name: Freddie Mercury
Figure Maker: Minifigures.com
MSRP: £14.95 (US$22.68)
Buy it at: Minifigures.com

Have I mentioned just how much of a fan of Queen I am? It is like a gift from the Gods (or my bosses). Already just getting it out of the shipping box I'm pleased with how professional this is done. The blister package is nice and secure, the card looks amazing and has a bio of Freddie on the back. And they even included a "Care Guide" for taking care of your minifigure. Looks like I'm going to need more pizza!

Opening up the package, I looked over the figure and just as the company claims, it is a full 360 design of the costume he wore for the 1986 live concert at Wembley Stadium (look it up, it's a powerful show). The joints are nice and tight and the parts are firmly set in place.

However I was in for another pleasant surprise when breaking him down I found hidden under his hair that he had a second "singing" face!

Bonus points to Minifigures for that. He comes with a mic (of course!) so you can pose him belting out notes to your hearts delight.

Wait. This isn't right.

There we go!

BTW: You don't want to mess with the security he hired.

As you can see, I love this little figure. It is very well made, the art design of both the figure, the card, and the guide that came with it are great! If you are big into LEGO, I recommend giving Minifigures a look and pick up some famous faces for your collection. You will not be disappointed.

[A huge thank you to Minifigures for providing us with this review sample!]
