Have you ever found a magic lantern and given it a rub? If you live in a Lego world, and you did that, the Genie Girl would appear. She is one of the sixteen new minifigures that are part of the Series 12 set 71007
The Genie Girl is part of the new Lego Series 12 minifigure collection released in early October 2014 in the USA. She came in the standard yellow poly bag. All the minifigs come like this, taken completely apart, with no markings on the outside of the bag, so it is VERY difficult to find out which one is inside before you buy it. But for me that’s part of the fun. You never know what you are going to get. Sure I get some duplicates sometimes, but you can never have enough minifigs!
Find her on Amazon.com LEGO Minifigures Series 12 – Set # 71007 That’s where I find the best prices all the time. But sometimes I don’t like to wait for the minifigs to be shipped, so I go to Target, or Wallgreens, or Toys-R-Us to find them.
Inside the bag is a paper with pictures of all the other figures in the set, as well as a black base plate for displaying the Genie Girl (or any other minifig you want). A brass colored magic lantern that can be held by the handle or placed on a single stud is included.
The genie doesn’t have any legs, instead it is a curvy part that fits on the bottom of the torso, and then tapers down to a single stud size at the bottom. It is a teal blue in color with tiny silver stars or sparkles printed on the front. If you place this on top of the magic lantern, it looks like the Genie Girl is coming out of the lamp.
Her torso is a lighter blue top with short sleeves, and a cut out section so you can see her midriff. Sort of like a belly dancer. Her hair is long and blond and in a pony tail at the back and her head and hands are yellow. The Genie Girls face has freckles, and it looks like she is winking at you, granting you your wish.
The first thing I think of when I see the Genie Girl is the old TV show: “I Dream of Jeanie”
If you visit Lego.com and find the Genie page, this is what it says:
“Are you suuure that’s what you want?”
The Genie Girl considers herself to be a professional Wish Consultant. Most genies will grant the exact spoken wishes of anybody who rubs their magic lamps, but she likes to make sure that whoever is wishing really knows what they’re getting themselves into. She doesn’t want there to be any silly wish mistakes on her watch!
The official rules say that the Genie Girl isn’t allowed to tell her lamp’s holder what to ask for, but she can still nudge wishes in the right direction by pointing out their possible accidental down-sides (you wouldn’t want to ask for super-powers and get the proportional speed of a slug, or wish for a castle and end up with one that’s under water). Once you’ve picked the right wish, all she has to do is wink, and it’s granted!
