Review: 79110 Silver Mine Shootout, part 1

Posted by ,

79110 Silver Mine Shootout minifigs79110 Silver Mine Shootout is the second largest Lone Ranger set which comes with 5 minifigs.

I'll therefore review it in two parts.

Part 1 covers the minifigs, and part 2, which I'll write later on once I've built the set, will cover the rest.

Bucking the recent trend of scattering the minifigs across all bags in the set to discourage pilfering from toy stores, all five are in bag one.

Tonto

The Tonto in this set is slightly different to that in other sets. He has 'dirt' on his legs, torso and face, and his mouth is turned down slightly.

The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger also has a dirty face and suit, and a different facial expression. I've added a photo to flickr that shows the difference between his hat and regular Stetsons, that Butch and Kyle, below, wear.

Chief Big Bear

Exclusive to this set is this native American Chief Big Bear who's sporting a very nice hairpiece. He has a double-sided head.

Butch Cavendish

Butch looks like a nasty piece of work! His hair and hat are one piece, like the ones on some PotC minifigs.

Kyle

Finally, we have Kyle, sporting a rather tatty suit, is probably also a baddie.

Another very nicely detailed set of minifigs, then. Now on to building the actual set...

Huw, is the chiefs hair piece rubber?

Can't wait to pick up some of these sets.

Not rubber, but a softer flexible plastic, yes.

Huw, can you please show us Kyle's suit without the scarf? I think it would make a great Civil War Confederate Soldier to counter the Union soldiers you showed us earlier. Just pop on some light bluish gray pants, a dark bluish gray Kepi cap (like the Union soliders wear), or even an older Light Gray cowboy hat / this one
( http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3629px2 ) with the star on it, for people of higher rank.

What do you think?

On the Lone Ranger, it has sort of comic book style white on his torso and legs. I am not the biggest fan of this. I wonder if it looked worse as 1 solid color but overall I have seen a dramatic amount of improvement of quality of lego minifigs so in the end, I am just being picky. Great review!

Anyone else wonder how some friends prices would look on tonto :P

These Minifigures look excellent, I fear this will become another theme to be collected which I had not originally planned to, joining TMNT and Galaxy Squad on that list...

It's the good Native Americans vs the evil cowboys it seems.

That handkerchief is supposed to be the other way around.

^ No it's not, look at the images on the box art in part 2. It can be used the other way round like on the Emerald Night train driver.
