Lego Minifigures Series 3

Picked up some of the Lego Minifigures from Series 3.


The official name of this guy may be Rapper, but I'm redubbing it the Douche Bag. You can tell because the beard depicted is supposed to be the "Rap Standard" beard, but without the goatee element it becomes the "Chin Strap" beard, which is also known as the Douch Bag beard. Because the style is particularly popular amongst douche bags. Being a white rapper with gangsta rap paraphanelia is also a very good sign. Anyone remember Brian Austin Greene in the 90's? That's what this dude looks like.


Continuing my purchasing of Asian Sterotype Legos... It's the Samurai! Dude looks pissed, because if there's one thing Lego like more than Asian Stereotype Lego minifigures, it's pissed off Asian Stereotype minifigures!
That's it. I'm not getting the Sumo minifigure. That dude is really pissed and really steretyped.


Continuing our tour of stereotyped minorities turned into Lego minifigures, it's the Hula Girl! Actually I think this one might be a little accurate. You see the big phony smile on her face that isn't reflected in her eyes. That says to me that this is actually a Lego minifigure of a woman hired to work as a Hula Girl in a tropical resort where she is required to be "happy" for all the tourists when her soul has long ago been worn down by all the horny businessmen who have hit on her and the offensive racial slurs, both intentional and unintentional, that have been slung at her over the years by ignorant tourists.


Oh Lord. Why don't we all pretend this is a minifigure of the Indian Chief from the Village People and ignore the fact that this is actually a generalization of a stereotype popularized by Euro-centric movie makers which only serves to marginalize multiple cultures with heritages that span eons.

  1. Is it just me, or are the lego figures looking more psychotic with each wave?
