The second bag I opened from the new series 12 Lego Minifig set was the Battle Goddess. She has some really cool accessories including a spear, shield and headpiece, but I’ll talk more about that in a minute.
In October of 2014 Lego released 16 new characters in the Series 12 Minifigs. These, like all the other sets before came in unmarked bags (the bags are yellow this time). There are no markings, bumps, or codes to see what is inside. You just don’t know what you are going to get. I’m sure some people will try to feel which minifig is inside the bag, but for me it’s fun to just buy a bunch of them and see what I get. Sure sometimes I get a duplicate, but you can never have too many minifigs!
To complete your collection, just head over to Amazon, and pick up all the LEGO Minifigures Series 12 – Set # 71007
Inside the yellow poly bag that is part of series 12, there are all the parts for the Battle Goddess, a black baseplate for displaying her, and a sheet with photos of all the different characters, as well as a code you can enter on-line to play the new Lego Minifig Game. I haven’t tried that out yet, but when I do, I’ll write about it and share it with you.
The Battle Goddess is dressed in white tunic on top. It’s decorated with a golden belt and gold decorations along the neckline. It is sleeveless, and she has gold bracelets on each wrist. Her legs are bare, but she comes with a cloth skirt that you have to carefully fold and place on the studs before you attach the torso. Her arms are yellow. On her head her mouth is closed, and it looks like she has gold lipstick
Her hat is one piece combined with blond hair. There is a place on top for a white headpiece to go on. It looks like a broom, but is actually called a Galea – it sort of looks like the helmet from Marvin the Martian. She also is holding a brown spear with a gold tip that is taller than she is, even with her big helmet. The Battle Goddess also has a brown shield with a golden pegasus (horse with wings). Based on all the decorations, she is a Roman Goddess, not Greek.
If you go to the Lego site, this is how they describe the Battle Goddess:
“If you attack the weak, then you deal with me!”
The Battle Goddess is a brave and powerful protector of the ancient world. Once a golden statue, she sprang to life in answer to a defenseless village’s pleas for help. After boldly driving away the bandits that were threatening them, she pledged to forevermore safeguard all who called upon her.
The Battle Goddess’s great strength of arms is matched only by her formidable sense of justice. She never gives up and never backs down, no matter the might of those who oppose her. If you seek to bully the small or the helpless, then beware – for the Battle Goddess will appear with an earth-shaking crash to stand against you!
Even though the Battle Goddess has some unique accessories, she isn’t my favorite. I just never really got into Greek or Roman Mythology. But she might be your favorite. Do you hope you get one? Did you get one? Tell us about it in the comments.
