Disco Dude is exclusive to set 8684, The Collectible Minifigure Series 2.
Minifigure Parts and Accessories
Disco Dude is composed of four main parts: hair, head, torso, and legs.
The hair is the same as part 87995 which appeared with the Series 1 Clown, but in the new black color.
The head print is new and provides a new entry into the series of minifigure heads with sunglasses.
The torso is white with purple arms and yellow hands. The torso is fantastic with chest hair and disco medallion. The white vest is a nice touch too.
The legs and hip assembly is white without print.
The accessory that comes with this figure is a 2x2 printed tile made to look like an album, "Brick Fever". It's too bad we couldn't get a disco ball...
Detailed pictures of all parts and accessories can be seen here.
Army Building Potential
The ABP for the figure itself is low, but the black afro will likely be sought after in multiples. This might bump the ABP up to "moderate".
Feeling It Out
The afro, definitely look for the afro.
The following are the secondary bar codes that can be found on the back
of each bag which indicates the figure inside. The EU bar codes are
shown on the left and the US bar codes are shown on the right. These
bar codes come courtesy of Grogall. You can find a single pdf
containing all bar codes here.
“Hey, everybody! Let’s Disco!”
The Disco Dude has traveled back in time to relive the days of disco dancing, bell-bottom pants and the very first LEGO Space sets. He can’t help but love it! Whenever he hears a disco beat and sees the big disco ball lights start flashing, he gets caught up in the music and just can’t stop dancing.
And what’s more, it’s his love of disco is contagious! Wherever the Disco Dude starts dancing, everybody around him can’t help but join in on the fun. Pretty soon, it’s all one big ‘70s disco dance party!
The Big Draw
"Disco Dude" is a whole bunch of cheesy goodness. The figure itself is just cool, and I could see people seeking it out even it they have no interest in the rest of Series 2. The black afro will easily be a part sought after by many.
