LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 4 - The Hazmat Guy



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

Parts and Accessories
The Hazmat Guy is composed of four main parts - helmet, head, torso, and legs.

The helmet is a new part in light orange. It is a radioactive containment suit with a black hazardous waste sign printed on the front. The back is similar to some older suits, like part x40, for the sprayer to be attached to.

The head is yellow with a new facial print featuring a scared look. There are wrinkles under the eyes and on its forehead.

The torso and arms are orange with black hands. There torso also has a hazardous waste sign printed on it along with a belt. Most of this is covered by his suit but the belt is still slightly visible.

The legs are light orange and the hips are black.

This figure comes with a very unique accessory. It's a sprayer with a flexible hose attached to the bottom. The hose can be attached to the back of the suit, as seen in White Fang's review on Eurobricks.

LEGO.com Bio
“This is a job for the Hazmat Guy! Er, do you smell something funny?”

When you’ve got a bad case of mysterious glowing goo in your city, the hard-working Hazmat Guy is just the fellow to call. Whether the job involves searching the sewers for mutant sludge or cleaning up after giant radioactive chickens from outer space, he’s always ready to put on his airtight protective suit, grab his hi-tech equipment, and make the streets safe and tidy once more.

Of course, when you get sent into dangerous situations to handle hazardous materials every day, you’re bound to get a little jittery. Although he never backs away from an emergency, the Hazmat Guy is always nervous that this is the one time his gear won’t work. After all, with all of the crazy substances he’s been exposed to, it’s a wonder he hasn’t grown an extra face on the other side of his head!

Army Building Potential
The ABP for this figure is high. The suit/gun I can see as being highly sought after items. This is the first time we've seen a hazmat figure of any kind.

Feeling It Out
I would try feeling for the suit and a flexible piece.

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 think the entire figure is the draw here. The suit/gun offers a lot of custom potential.

  1. This figure is by far the best in the series. BTW, the visor doesn't come off. And don't try to take it off, or else you'll just destroy the visor or helmet. ;p

  2. You mention several times that it's orange, to be more specific it's a light orange color, like on the Fishermans pants.

  3. ^A quick look at BrickLink confirms it...light orange it is. I'll make the change now.

  5. Actually there was a minifigure in the video game stunt rally named radium who wore a similar suit.

  6. Hello Ugly Duckling,

    First of all, thank you for your great site, I found exactly what I was looking for: this pic. But there was something I couldn't pass by, and it is you call the sign in the torso of the figure "radioactive waste sign", and my friend, that is not entirely true, for this sign is not only used for that. It is used to label everything known as radioactive, so the sign is called "radiation symbol".

    See you around, man! Keep up the hard work!
