LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 3: The Tennis Player


The Tennis Player is exclusive to set 8803, The Collectible Minifigure Series 3.

Minifigure Parts and Accessories
The Tennis Player is composed of four main parts: hair piece, head, torso, and legs.

The hair is a dark orange variant of part 87990. This is a new color for this part, which has only appeared with the Series 1 Nurse previously.

The head print is new, and very basic. Why is she so angry? Perhaps it's determination.

The torso is white with yellow arms and hands. The torso print resembles a three-button tennis shirt. As with many of the collectible minifigures, there's no print on the back of the torso.

The hips and legs are white with print on the front of the legs to represent a tennis skirt and bare legs.

The accessory that comes with this figure is a tennis racket. This is a new part for the LEGO universe (the DUPLO tennis racket doesn't count).

LEGO.com Bio
“I win again!”

The Tennis Player trains hard to be the very best at the game, and she’s got the athletic skills to show for it. Wherever the ball goes on the court, she’s already there, ready to send it flying right back where it came from with a lightning-quick, precisely-aimed swing of her gleaming tennis racket.

And what a racket it is! Forged by a master racket-smith from the metal of a rare meteorite alloy, it’s lightweight, perfectly balanced and almost indestructible. The Tennis Player never goes anywhere without it, and she’s sure that with her lucky racket in her hand, she’ll never lose a match!

Army Building Potential
The ABP for the figure is low. Sure a head and hair change sets you up for a tennis match, but multiples of this figure are not likely to be sought.

Feeling It Out
The tennis racket is the item to be on the look out for here.

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
Honestly, I think the hair piece will be the most desirable item, even over the tennis racket. The hair is a new color for a relatively rare part. The tennis racket is nice, but has limited application.
