It is Minifigure Monday! Each week, we celebrate a different LEGO® character through art. For the last few weeks, I have been photographing my way through Minifigures Series 21 and providing feel guides as I go. In previous posts, we saw the Ancient Warrior, Cabaret Singer, Paddle Surfer, and Alien. This week, we take a look at the Series 21 Violin Kid.
- NAME: Violin Kid
- SET #: 71029
- THEME: Collectible Minifigures Series 21
- COST: $4.99 CAD
- BRICK COUNT: 7
I found this character using the violin bow. It is actually a Harry Potter wand piece. Consequently, you can feel the two wand pieces on their mounting plastic. If you are familiar with the Harry Potter theme at all, you likely know what the piece feels like. The second item I found in the blind bag was the violin. It also has a distinct fee, similar to a small guitar. However, you can feel the knob on the back that the Minifigure grabs on to. Finally, I also find the mop hairpiece easy to identify in blind bags.
I took the images for this photoshoot on my Nikon Z50. The room featured is the dance studio from Assembly Square. However, in order to take the photos, I needed to disassemble the street facing wall of the building. Luckily, walls are often easy to take apart on the modular buildings. The lighting comes from two sources. My cell phone is shining in through the rear window of the room. Additionally, I held an LED penlight in my hand to illuminate the character’s face. LED lights are a little cold, so I warmed up the tones a little in PaintShop Pro.
I am normally not a fan of the stumpy-kid characters. However, this one includes two interesting pieces. Firstly, the violin. Secondly, take a close look at his t-shirt. That is the Blacktron logo from the old days of the Space theme. Both of those pieces are new for my collection. What are your thoughts on the Series 21 Violin Kid?

Until next time,
