Lego Review: Wild West Wildstyle from The Lego Movie by Lego
Wildstyle comes in a few pieces, so you'll have to attach her head and lower body to her torso. She has swivel shoulders, swivel wrists, and a swivel neck. You can also remove the hands and arms with a little effort to customize your own creations.
Besides the pieces needed to build her, Wildstyle also comes with a fan, a stand, and a checklist of all 16 figures from this series of minifigures. The fan is simply molded in black and isn't too exciting, but it does go with her outfit. I love the stands and am really glad that Lego has continued to offer them in each series of minifigures. They're perfect for all kinds of displays and stands are always a plus in my book!
When comparing her design to other Lego minifigures, I think Wildstyle is easily a Great mini. While her accessory is a bit dull, the level of printed detail on the figure is excellent. She's very fun and I'm really excited to both see this character in action in The Lego Movie and to see how I can integrate her into my unique Lego world. I imagine I'll use her as a medium of some sort who is an integral member of the Monster Fighters team. I'll probably arm her with a pistol as well for shotting zombies, just because. Maybe give her a crystal ball or a skull. Who knows? Darn, I love Legos!
