The Rock Star is one of 16 Minifigs in the new series 12. This is one of my favorites because of the red guitar, and the unique big 80’s hair style. There are studs on his leather pants, zippers on his leather jacket, and he even has chest hair! This guy knows how to rock. I know, because I grew up in the 80’s and think I saw this guy on stage one time.
He came in one of the unmarked yellow poly bags. Inside the bag was a paper with photos of all 16 series 12 Lego Minifigs, the disassembled Rock Star, and a black base plate for displaying the minifig. There were black legs, a black body, a head with sunglasses and a crooked smirk, big 80’s hair with two silver lightning bolts, yellow hands, and a red electric guitar.
This is one of my favorites in this new series. I have always wanted a Lego guitar, and now I have one. He also has a really unique hair style, and the smile on his face is pretty cool, too.
This is how the Lego site describes the Rock Star:
“They call it a rock because it rocks, baby!”
You’ve heard of hard rock? Well, check out the rock-solid Rock Star! He sleeps on a bare bed frame with no mattress. He takes the padded insoles out of his shoes. He uses the strongest hair gel ever invented. He only eats stale bread rolls (with rock candy for dessert). And his guitar is carved out of a single huge diamond.
The Rock Star rose to rock stardom with his mega-hit song, “Brick Wall Baby.” The record went platinum right away, but that just wasn’t hard enough for him, so he had it recast in titanium carbide. Now he’s looking for something even harder that he can use to make a completely indestructible tour bus for riding between concerts!
