Three Juniors Incredibles 2 sets were released last week and the main reason that many of you reading this might consider buying them is just for the minifigures.
That's because, being Juniors sets, they offer little in the way of building experience and are not something you're likely to want to display. They are, however, packed full with playability as you'd expect for sets aimed at kids from age 5.
But as they are not the target audience here I'm just going to take a look at the minifigures in all three sets in this review today.
Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible
Mr. Incredible appears in 10760 Underminer's Bank Heist and the figure displays many of the features common to all of the Parr family figures: dual-moulded arms and legs, and double-sided heads.
Both of his are 'happy'.
The figure on the left is the version of him in the Disney collectable minifigures series. His hair is the same but everything else is different; most notably the orange belt is printed on the torso and not the hips on the new version, on the right.
Helen Parr / Mrs. Incredible / Elastigirl
There are two versions of Mrs. Incredible in the sets: This one, with normal arms, is also in 10760 Underminer's Bank Heist.
She sports a brand new hairpiece, which is devoid of much detail, to make it look cartoonish, I imagine.
Her alternate face is one of anger.
None of the family have printing on the back of their torsos.
Her alter-ego Elastigirl comes in the smallest of the sets, 10759 Elastigirl's Rooftop Pursuit. This is the second minfigure to feature long, flexible, arms, the other being Ms. Marvel in 76076 Captain America Jet Pursuit. I can't say I'm a fan, to be honest.
The head on this version of her has the same open-mouthed happy expression as above, and a closed mouth smirk on the rear.
Violet and her siblings all appear in the largest set, 10761 The Great Home Escape. The highlight of this figure is her long black hair, kept in control with an orange hair band.
Liker her mother's, there's not a lot of detail on it, but it still looks great.
Her alternate expression is a look of fear or apprehension.
Dashiell 'Dash' Parr
Young Dash has dual-moulded short lets and an off-the-shelf hairpiece that's appeared in many different colours and sets over the years.
Both of his expressions are happy.
The minifigure-scale baby has appeared in just four sets since its introduction in 2016. This is the first time it's been cast in red, and also the first time it's come with flesh-coloured hands and head.
Doesn't he look adorable?
The three sets each contain a different antagonist. Screenslaver is in the smallest.
It's the first time I've seen a figure with titanium metallic legs but they appeared in three other sets last year.
The helmet and mask piece is excellent and makes the chracter look quite menacing.
Creases printed on both sides of the torso give his shirt a disheveled look.
Take his helmet off and he looks sad and vulnerable but apparently revealing his face is a spoiler so if you want see it, click here.
This mole-like creature comes in 10760 Underminer's Bank Heist. It's one of the few minifig head prints to feature a nose.
Unfortunately much of his face is obscured by his miners' helmet, so can't be seen without removing it.
The back of the torso is printed with dungarees to match the front, despite it being hidden by his cape.
Finally, we have Brick, who comes in the largest set 10761 The Great Home Escape. Presumably she looks like masonry so she can blend in next to brick walls.
Whatever, she looks great, and particularly fearsome when you twist her head to reveal this expression.
The hairpiece is fairly common, but this is the first time it's appeared in dark red.
This is an outstanding collection of minifigures and one that Disney and Pixar fans will want to add to their collection.
Unfortunately, you will have to fork out on three sets, costing a total of US$75 / £75 / 90€, that you probably don't want, to be able to obtain them. And doubly-unfortunately, the sets are not even good parts packs because, being aimed at younger kids, they are full of single-use large parts.
The secondary market is of course an option but those listed on eBay at the moment are priced starting at £10 / US$10 so you might as well bite the bullet and buy the whole sets...
Thanks to LEGO for providing the sets for this review, which is an expression of my own opinions.
