LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 4 - The Street Skater


The Street Skater is exclusive to set 8804, LEGO Series 4 Collectible Minifigures.

Parts and Accessories
The Street Skater is composed of four main parts - hat, head, torso, and legs.

The hat is a dark blue gray variant of part 90541, which came with the Series 2 Skier. There's a green spray painted brick on the front of the hat.

The head features a new facial print featuring a smiling face with glasses.

The torso and arms are light blue gray with yellow hands. The torso print resembles a hoodie over a black and orange t-shirt. There is back print on this figure to represent the hood of the hoodie.

The legs and hips are dark tan with no visible print.

The accessory for this figure is a black skateboard with white wheels. This is the same skateboard design that appeared with the Series 1 Skater, but the design on the top of the board is different (blue rays of light eminating from a cityscape on the top, and a brick with wings on the bottom). These are new colors for these parts.

LEGO.com Bio
“This is the perfect spot for an awesome new stunt!”

To the Street Skater, the whole city is one big skate park. No matter where in town he may be, everything around him looks like just the right location for his next mind-blowing skateboarding stunt.

People all over the city are used to seeing the Street Skater rolling up and down stairs, along railings, through fountains and even across the branches of the city park’s trees. He's such a familiar sight that the streets just wouldn't be the same without him and his famous skateboard!

Army Building Potential
The army building potential for the figure is low.

Feeling It Out
I would try feeling for the skateboard and hat.

Pre-Identifying Figures
Series 4 will be using the same 'dot code' approach to identifying which figures are inside each pack. The following dot codes were provided by minifigcollector.com who will have a corresponding app for Android smart phones. You can see the entire dot code sheet here.

The Big Draw
I predict that the torso and head will be popular for 'sig figs'. The hat will also have appeal. The skateboard I'm not as certain about, but it's definitely a better design than the Series 1 board.

  1. It's been confirmed that they will use the dot system again. (Source: 'Dazmundo' at Eurobricks made a forum showing his Werewolf he won from the Series 4 raffle)
