|#11 Soccer Player|
|This scruffy looking David Brickham is the greatest Soccer player in the world. Why else would he be endorsed by the Octan company? Plus, he’s won this brand new shiny silver trophy in honor of his on-field exploits. Now we finally have bronze, silver, and gold trophies for our minifigures’ cases. If only he could have come with a soccer ball too. Decoding Tip: This one’s a hard one, but you’ll have to feel for the trophy and its pedestal.|
|Not so much a Werewolf as a Wolf Man. You can tell by the dog-like face and lack of wolf’s snout. But that doesn’t make him any less vicious. Don’t let those big yellow eyes fool you. He’ll tear you apart just easily as he ripped up his best suit. Your only hope is to distract him with a morsel of bone. What dog doesn’t love to play fetch? Decoding Tip: Feel for the small bone accessory.|
|#13 Hazmat Guy|
|There’s only one man to call when the radiation levels are off the chart. The Hazmat Guy may be brave, but that doesn’t mean he’s not worried. His large suit may keep him safe from harm but the scanning device he comes with gives him enough information to get him concerned. Decoding Tip: The helmet of his suit is large and hard to miss.|
|The artist struggles every day with his craft. His style of choice? Cubism, of course. With his determined look and tiny soul patch, he studies his easel looking for the perfect spot to place his next brush stroke. It’s a good thing he has a brand new brush and palette. Decoding Tip: Feel for the pointy brush and flat palette.|
|#15 Ice Skater|
|The Ice Skater is all dressed up in her sparkling outfit and her hair molded in place. She’s got the same new skates as the Hockey Player, but she uses them with grace and finesse instead of brute force. She’s also got a brand new blue skirt that wraps around her waist. Decoding Tip: Feel for the little skates. Just make sure there’s not a hockey stick in there also.|
|#16 Crazy Scientist|
|Don’t call him mad, because there’s nothing angry about this Scientist. He prefers the term crazy. After all, you’d have to be a bit crazy to mix up the chemicals he’s planning to concoct. So what if a couple of explosions have set his hair on end. What else is a scientist to do? He’s got this brand new beaker of green fluid and he’s just chomping at the bit to mix it with something. Decoding Tip: His hair is kind of squishy, but your best off feeling for the new tapered beaker.|
Even though the barcodes have been removed from the packages, there are still ways to root out what’s inside. On the bottom on the back of each package is a series of slightly raised dots. Each figure has its own unique set of dots. They can be difficult to see, but we have compiled a new cheat sheet to point you in the right direction. Also, in the box we went through, each kind of figure was in a row. Like all the skaters were together, or all the Hazmat Guys. This, in combination with the cheat sheet and decoding tips I gave for feeling the bags should help you find, or at least narrow down your search for the figures you are looking for.
If you save this decoder and print it from a picture viewing program “as is” (no enlarging/scaling to fit) it should print to scale with the packages to let you compare between the decoder and the packages easier.
I haven’t been disappointed with this line yet. There are some great figures in Series 4 and some really nice accessories like the skates and hazmat suit. My only complaint is there aren’t enough Musketeers. How am I going to make an army with just three per box?
