Incredibles 2 minifigures

Posted by ,

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 Parr

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.

Jack-Jack

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?

Screenslaver

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.


Underminer

This mole-like creature comes in 10760 Underminer's Bank Heist. It's one of the few minifig head prints to feature a nose.

View image at flickr

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.

Brick

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.

View image at flickr

The hairpiece is fairly common, but this is the first time it's appeared in dark red.

Verdict

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.

Just a point of pedantry but it’s Screenslaver not Screenslayer. Because they wanted a pun on screensaver

Sorry to pester you but...
Screen slavers face is a bit of a spoiler, so could you edit this so that other people don't get spoiled- thanks.

Also, her name is Ms. Marvel, not Mrs. Marvel. ;-)

Great article, great minifigs!

That screenslaver head would work great for Vulture from Spider-Man Homecoming!

Fortunately I have no interest in these, although Screenslayer's head piece/helmet? would make a cool SW droid :)

@Brickalili, @thebrickpal, thank you, corrected.

@AgentKallus, didn't know that, but thanks, I've removed it but left a link.

@Qwerty7556, personally I prefer to try inject a bit of personality into them, and 3/4 views often reveal things that head-on ones don't.

Honestly the minifigs don't look amazing to me but that's probably because they are meant to look cartoony and there isn't really a way to do it better. I would still like to get them if possible. The Incredibles is literally one of my top 10 films of all time.

Clarification: Underminer is supposed to be like a mole-man, notnot a "piglike creature" . . . hence he lives/digs underground.

@Judgeguy - If you think these minifigs are bad, take a look at the Edna Mode minifig! I love the Incredibles; however, I think TLG blew it on these minifigs.

Exaggerated proportions are integral to Pixar character design and minifigures are not necessarily suited to that. It is almost impossible, for instance, to convey the enormity of Mr Incredible's chest using a standard minifigure body, hence a different element is found in the upcoming video game.

Taking those limitations into consideration, I actually think LEGO did pretty well with these figures. A larger torso element, like that used for Axl in the NEXO Knights theme, would have been perfect for Mr Incredible and might also have been appropriate for Brick. However, the children all look good, I like Helen's flexible arms very much and the Underminer's short stature has been captured perfectly too.

I am always pleased when LEGO creates anything based on Pixar properties so will definitely be picking these up at some point.

I want Jack Jack. I have a feeling he is gonna be popular on the 2nd hand market....

In comparison, the collectible minifig version kind of looks like when Mr. Incredible "let himself go" in the first movie. The increased belly would make the belt ride a bit lower...

I still think the best reason to buy Juniors sets is for the printed pieces.
And while I'm not a big Incredibles fan, these Minifigs are pretty cool.

All minifigures actually do have a nose! But most of the time you just can't see it. Just look at the minifigure skull, you can clearly see it has one. Though some minifigures have noses large enough to be visible, normally you can only see that minifigures have noses when they are wearing something that would reveal it. Such as the Classic Castle Helmet, or Batman's Cowl.

My favourite is clearly Jack Jack. Always loved the baby minifigure since I saw it in the first set. And now I CAN get a figure. And IT’S JACK JACK. If the set wasn’t so expensive, I would probably buy 2 to get him for my collection and display :D

Well Lego have done it again, managed to tick all of the sales and marketing boxes, offering a selection of sets for kids and causing us poor AFOLS to buy they all anyway. Perfect for them. I only ticked one "Wanted" originally so I may try to stick to that and look out for deals at amazon in 6 months time. I do like the Incredibles but like many dont like the Juniors Prices or parts (Except I will admit like others Printed parts on Cars 3 were welcomed, shame about the simplicity of the builds). It does feel wrong to have so few parts for the price.

The printed pieces aren’t half bad, especially the safe door, the family portrait but they are indeed sold at a premium.

I like this version of Mr. Incredible better than the regular minifigure release version. It is hard to really capture their true shape in minifigure form.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Those minifigs are terrific!

I see a massively-missed opportunity in not including a Frozone minifigure. Did the LEGO Group really think the Brickheadz version alone was enough? I suppose the demand for “nondescript Batman minifigure #76” was a more pressing minifigure to release... (And that’s coming from a Bat-fan!)

We really had fun with the movies. And I am pretty sure that I will not buy any single set. But the Incredible family minifigs are really good IMO. Good enough to try to get them all eventually.

Where's the rest of the Jurassic World reviews!!!?

I love the Incredibles...and these figs are not quite right.
I think they should've first done the sculpted faces to match the animation like they do with Yoda or the Simpsons figures, then for Mr. Incredible, you can't have him same height as the others. He needs to be a big fig. If you can do it for the Maui figure in Moana, you can do it for Mr. Incredible.
The Underminer looks ok, but still not right. Too pig-ish but not terrible and not here but Edna Mode is ALL wrong. Wrong hair (needs to come out flat and wide) and the glasses should be much larger. Doesn't look like her at all.
Yes, I know, they gotta' go with the parts on hand to stay within their budget. I know.
These just don't look right.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks for the review!

Been a while since I’ve watched the first movie, but I’m pretty sure Underminer’s eyes are obscured by his helmet in the film, so his eyes being hidden under the helmet on his minifigure is intentional on LEGO’s part, and very well done!

IDK if it's been pointed out but Jack Jack's head is a new version of the Baby head - his has a neck and a pinhole on top

I'm not a fan of the oversimplified hairpieces, as it unnecessarily reduces the reusability of the moulds. Plus, the hair in the film (while definitely being well groomed) isn't devoid of texture and looks much like real hair.

Gravatar

I like the fact these are Junior's sets.
It means we get some printed parts, instead of stickers.

Having all the mini-figs in one set would have been better for collectors.

No Frozone? WTH! A comic con exclusive no doubt.

By in United Kingdom,

It's ironic that the minifigure representing Dash, the character who runs at super speed, is the only member of the family (apart from Jack Jack) that can't bend its legs. LEGO really should correct this shortcoming (pun intended) and make articulated short legs.

I love these figures - I just wish they found a way to give Jack-Jack his spike of hair.

During your review you mention Mrs. Incredible's two variants having the same grin. That's not true, they are ever-so-slightly different.

If there's anything I'd change about this collection: give Jack-Jack hair, make Mr. Incredible like he is in the game, and make Brick a Big Fig. All and all this is a pretty decent collection. Probably won't get it but I want to.
