LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 3: The Race Car Driver


The Race Car Driver is exclusive to set 8803, The Collectible Minifigure Series 3.

Minifigure Parts and Accessories
The Race Car Driver is composed of five main parts: helmet, hair piece, head, torso, and legs.

The helmet is a red variant of part 2446 with the Octan logo and checkerboard stripe. The visor is trans-clear.

A hair piece also comes with this figure. It is part 62810 and this is a new color for this piece.

The head print is new with a lopsided, toothy grin.

The torso and arms are red with white hands. The torso print is a racing uniform with the Octan logo and two smaller 'brand' patches on the chest, one is a flaming wrench and the other said 'Stafford Engines'. The name  'N. Groves' is also stitched along the bottom of the jacket. There is no print on the back of the torso.

The hips white and the legs are red with no visible print.

The helmet acts as the accessory for this figure.

LEGO.com Bio
“Must...go...faster!”

Years ago, the Race Car Driver met a mysterious man with a robot monkey who told him that he would be compelled to go faster and faster all his life. And it was true: from tricycle races to soapbox derbies, he has always been happiest when moving as fast as safety and the laws of physics will allow.


As soon as he was old enough to enter competitions, he was off and racing, constantly tweaking, modifying and tuning up his cars for more and more speed and power. Now that he’s become a professional driver, he can finally do what he’s always dreamed of doing: tour the world’s racetracks in one of the fastest things on wheels! 

Army Building Potential
The ABP for the figure is low. Racers are nice...I guess.

Feeling It Out
This will be difficult as there aren't many distinctive parts to feel through the polybag. The helmet could work, but could also be confused for items of other collectible figs from this series.

Bar Codes
Unlike previous series of collectible minifigures, there will be no secondary bar codes to help determine what figure is inside. However, there are a series of 'bumps' on the bottom of the packages that can be used to identify the contents (LEGO Series 3 Collectible Minifigure Codes). These codes were provided courtesy of FBTB.net and Rick Theroux.

The Big Draw
The best I can figure is the hair piece due to the new color. Other than that, I see these sitting on the shelves.
