31 Days of Toy Terror: Fortune Teller from Lego Minifigures Series 9 by Lego
Welcome to a bit of respite in 31 Days of Toy Terror! So far you've faced a killer tree, a backwoods cultist, a cryptid legend, and a hockey mask wearing maniac. Well, you're out of the woods for now, but what will your ultimate fate be? It's time to head on over to the old carnival just outside of town. As you listen to the eerily cheerful sounds of the calliope playing amidst the October wind, you stroll down to the fortune teller's tent....
I love 31 Days of Toy Terror because it gives me a chance to go back and review a mixture of older and newer figures, sometimes reviewing stuff from lines I don't review very often. Today I'm looking at the Fortune Teller from the 9th series of Lego Minifigures. While I've disassembled much of my Lego haunted world over the past year to make room for my Castle Grayskull and massive MOTUC collecton, I've kept a number of the minifigures out. One of these was the Fortune Teller. The character actually has a bio on Lego's own site:
The mystical Fortune Teller has a unique gift for prophecy…sometimes. Half of her predictions come true in every last detail, while the other half turn out to be wildly wrong. Even she doesn’t know which ones are which. It’s led to some very happy customers – and some extremely annoyed ones, too.
It’s gotten to be such a big problem that the Fortune Teller has started second-guessing her own second sight. Whenever she tells someone’s fortune, she also makes something up that’s the exact opposite. It may be confusing, but at least she can be reasonably certain that she’ll always be at least half-right!
To learn more about this mysterious lady, join me after the break...
I like the elaborate tampographic stamp on the dress and torso. It has some nice gold details amidst a myriad of greens, pinks, and crimsons. She's also wearing a corset. If you changed out her head, which looks like she's telling someone some good news, you could use her as a fairly standard medieval figure. Or some kind of hippy person who hangs out at farmers markets and always talks about essential oils and sitar music. I guess even Legoland can't escape those people.
