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 Series 21. Additionally, I have provided a feel guide for each character as I go, just in case you are still looking for a character or two. In previous weeks, we looked at the Ancient Warrior, Cabaret Singer, Paddle Surfer, Alien, and Violin Kid. This week, we look at the Series 21 Bee Keeper.
- NAME: Bee Keeper
- SET #: 71029
- THEME: Collectible Minifigures Series 21
- COST: $4.99 CAD
- BRICK COUNT: 8
The first object I found in this blind bag was the bee keeper’s helmet. It is easily the largest thing in the package. However, the real giveaway was the top of his little canister. It is the leg support piece we originally saw in the DC Comics Super Heroes Minifigure line. Very simply, it is a grey version of the piece used to make Minifigures look like they are jumping or flying. You can also feel for a standard cup piece, and the 2×2 square tile.
This was a simple one. I built a small behive to stick in the background. You can probably tell which bricks were used just by looking carefully at the photo. It was literally a 30 second build. It took more time to find the pieces than it did to assemble. Otherwise, the image was taken outside in the grass. The Minifigure is standing on a cement block so the grass does not tower over him. This figurine was hard to photograph because the helmet always blurs out the face. In the end, I decided that did not matter so much because you cannot clearly see an actual bee keeper’s face either. I really did not edit the photo much at all, I just cropped it a little.
All in all, it is a fun Minifigure. You can place him in a community garden or something in your custom designs. Bee hives are pretty easy to make for that purpose. With a little more effort than I made, you can make one that allows the honeycomb tray to slide in. What are your thoughts on the Series 21 Bee Keeper Minifigure?
