Collectible Minifigures Series 1: The Caveman


Minifigure Parts and Accessories
The Caveman is made of four parts: a new hair-piece with beard, torso with hide print, legs with hide print, and head. A caveman themed character is also new for minifigures outside of the Duplo line. His accessory is a new brown club, which is actually a smaller version of  part bb287. As always, the figure will come with the new minifigure stand.

You can finally complete your custom minifigure collection from the movie "The Hangover"!

Army Building Potential
The "army building potential" or "ABP" for this figure is low.

Feeling It Out
This figure could likely be identified through the polybag easily by the club.

Bar Codes
The following are the secondary bar codes that can be found on the back of each bag which indicates the figure inside. The bar code on the left is valid for the EU while the bar code on the right is valid for the US. These bar codes come courtesy of Brickset.com where a single pdf containing all bar codes can be found.


The Big Draw
The beard and the hide-print torso and legs are likely the big draw here. The smaller club is a new weapon in this size and may have appeal.

FBTB.net Poll Results
According to the poll currently on the FBTB.net forums, The Caveman is floating around the in middle of the pack. This might mean there's a fair amount of interest in this figure. As always, those who frequent AFOL forums may not be representative of the broader market.

Official LEGO.com Bio  
“Me build, therefore me am!”

This would-be inventor from the prehistoric past is always tinkering with sticks, rocks and the occasional bricks he finds lying around, trying to invent something new. Of course, everything he comes up with has already been invented – he’s a Caveman with a tiny little brain, after all – but that doesn’t stop him from trying. He never gets jokes and usually needs things explained to him with gestures and pictures…and even then, he gets it wrong most of the time.

The Caveman is very strong and always hungry. If something looks like it might be food, he’ll try to take a bite, and if it runs away, he’ll lift his club up above his head and chase it down. Not a lot of people know it, but he’s also an excellent artist who can create incredible landscapes and murals using only the simplest of tools!
