LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 4 - The Werewolf


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

Parts and Accessories
The Werewolf is composed of four main parts – a hair piece, head, torso, and legs.

The hair piece is a brown version of part 93230pb01. This is the same mold as seen on the Elf from series 3.

The head is brown with a new facial print featuring orange eyes and snarling teeth on a hairy face.

The torso is white, one arm is white and the other is brown, and the figure has brown hands. The torso has a shirt ripped to shreds printed on it. The one brown arm makes it look as tho one sleeve has been completely ripped off of the shirt.

The legs and hips are light blue, also torn at by the Werewolf, printed on each leg.

The accessory is a white bone. Similar to those released with Ninjago.

LEGO.com Bio
"Aroooo!"

Whenever the full moon rises high in the night sky, the Werewolf undergoes a startling transformation into a half-man, half-beast creature. Unable to control his primal instincts, he rampages across the countryside, terrifying all who encounter him!

...Okay, he actually just digs holes, buries chew toys in the yard, and romps around the park fetching sticks. It's all a little embarrassing for the Werewolf, so if you happen to see him running around in circles trying to catch his own tail, please try to act scared. It'll mean a lot to him.

Army Building Potential
The ABP for this figure is moderate. I can see many people wanting to create Werewolves and we already have a few different face selections (Greyback and boardgame). The hair will be the big piece people are looking for.

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.

Feeling It Out
The bone will be your best bet here and even that will be hard to feel for. You want to look for one with minimal parts in it.

The Big Draw
The hair piece is really the biggest draw here. Also, we haven't seen a werewolf with pointed ears since 2002.


A big thanks to Grogall for the hi-res images!
