Welcome back to another edition of Minifigure Monday. Each week, I celebrate a different LEGO® character through art. As such, for the last several weeks, I have been photographing my way through one of the recent collectible Minifigure series. Additionally, I am making video feel guides as I go just in case you are still on the lookout for these figurines. We have already looked at the Ancient Warrior, Cabaret Singer, Paddle Surfer, Alien, Violin Kid, Bee Keeper, and Space Police Guy. This week, I am sharing the Series 21 Centaur Warrior.
- NAME: Centaur Warrior
- SET #: 71029
- THEME: Collectible Minifigures Series 21
- COST: $4.99 CAD
- BRICK COUNT: 8
This is a really easy Minifigure to find. The blind bag feels thick as soon as you pick it up. There are two reasons for that. Firstly, this package contains a bag inside a bag. That always makes the packaging feel slightly more rigid. Secondly, the horse legs are a large piece. It was the first object I found as soon as I picked up the pack. You can easily feel all four legs and the tail. However, the package also contains the feathered Minifigure hairpiece and an apple to help identify the character. I used the bow and arrow as well.
I wanted a natural, forest-like setting for this photo. Additionally, I thought it would be fun to have the centaur spying on civilization from the forest’s edge. Centaurs are often associated with more medieval fantasy, so I used the recent Medieval Blacksmith set as a backdrop. The photos were taken in the late afternoon since I like the natural lighting around that time. I took the photo with one hand while strategically positioning a branch from my cedar hedge with the other. Finally, I tried a different angle with just the Blacksmith apple tree in the background since the character holds an apple. Perhaps she went apple picking.
I was really happy to get the Series 21 Centaur Warrior. In terms of fantasy characters, I felt centaurs were lacking from the LEGO mythology. Two centaurs come in a concurrent Harry Potter set. However, I do not want the rest of the set, so I find it hard to splurge on the kit. Maybe if it hits the clearance racks soon my centaur warrior will get some friends… What are your thoughts on the centaur warrior? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media. Until next time,
