The Sailor is exclusive to set 8804, LEGO Series 4 Collectible Minifigures.
Parts and Accessories
The Sailor is composed of four main parts - hat, head, torso, and legs.
The hat is a new part in white, not previously available. There is a blue anchor printed on the front of the hat.
The head features a new facial print featuring a 'winking' expression (what does this sailor know that we don't?). The 'wink' may have been used to better mimic how people often look through telescopes.
The torso and arms are white with yellow hands. The torso print resembles a sailor's shirt. There is back print on the torso as seen in White Fang's review on Eurobricks.
The legs and hips are white no visible print.
The accessory for this figure is a flat silver telescope, a new color for this part.
“Aye aye, Cap’n!”
The brave and trusty Sailor can always be counted on in a nautical emergency. He can tie knots like nobody’s business, spot a lighthouse through his spyglass from a hundred leagues’ distance in the middle of a storm, and hoist a mainsail or batten down the hatches in no time flat.
The Sailor has spent his whole life at sea, and he knows every tide and fathom like the back of his hand. He just doesn’t feel like himself if he’s not out on a sailing ship, feeling the deck roll beneath his feet and hearing the gulls squawking overhead. Freedom, adventure and the great wide sea: that’s the life for him!
Army Building Potential
The army building potential for the figure is moderate to high. This style of sailor has not been available before. The simple design allows for head changes to fill out your minifig Navy.
Feeling It Out
I would try for the hat as it has a distinctive shape, but this one might be difficult to discern through feel alone.
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
The hat is the most unique part of this minifigure, and I would expect this to be the biggest draw. As I mentioned before there hasn't been a sailor in this style available before, so the whole figure may be desirable.
