Canadian in Next Series of Minifigs

The fifth series of the Collectible Minifig line will contain a specifically “Canadian” character.

Hi-resolution pictures are starting to appear of the next series (see: Brothers Brick) and in addition to the much-anticipated gladiator and British Guardsman figures there will be a Canadian lumberjack. Dressed in a plaid shirt and carrying a new printed fallers axe the clincher in his identity as a hoser is the new trucker hat element but this time printed with what is clearly a beaver.

Already the internet is abuzz with people clamouring for a Mountie figure to create brickfilms of “I’m a lumberjack” by Monty Python.

  1. There is also the Inuit ๐Ÿ™‚ You could argue he might be from Alaska, or that he’s exclusively First Nations, but he’s definitely not an Eskimo, though I guarantee that’s what everyone will call him.

  2. I’ve seen him referred to online as Redneck (first announcement through BB), Logger, Canadian, Lumberjack, Woodsman etc.

    I expect LEGO will again sidestep the issue and call the Inuit figure “Arctic Tribal Fisherman” or some such.

  3. I believe that this is the figure that Matt Ashton, one of the designers, was referring to in the last BrickJournal magazine. He was talking about a fig that was an in-joke based on his Canadian friend.
