Lego Minifig Series 12 – The Wizard

The blue Wizard is one of the new Series 12 Minifigures.  There are 16 all together, and this one is pretty cool.  But the one I got is different from what is advertised on the Lego site.

Or to order your own for about $3-4 bucks visit Amazon.com LEGO Minifigures Series 12 – Set # 71007

The Wizard has the most pieces in this set.  All together there are 13 (hands, torso, slope leg, cape, collar, beard, head, hat, and 3 pieces for the staff and base plate) inside the poly bag.  That might help you if you are trying to feel which minifig you are going to get.  It’s hard to see which one because there are no markings on the bags, so it is a surprise each time you buy one.

The Wizard is blue with gold stars and moons printed on his torso, cape and collar.  But in my set, there is no printing on the legs.  I don’t know if that is a mistake, or if because I got one of the early sets they changed it, but if you look at the lego.com site, he has printed legs.  He actually doesn’t have legs, only a slope piece.  He has a grey beard, like Gandalf, and a blue pointy wizard hat with more silver stars and moons printed on it.

The staff is actually three pieces, put together.  A brown wand, a brown cup, and a blue crystal piece on top.  Even though the Wizard minifig has 2 cloth pieces, and a very cool hat, the staff is my favorite feature.

Here is the bio of the Wizard on the Lego.com:

“Now, where did I put that potion? I know it’s in here somewhere…”

The wise and kindly Wizard has studied the magical arts for many years, and few are better than he at crafting spells, enchantments and useful elixirs. He knows just the right rhymes for undoing curses, and can cure hexes with a touch of his crystal-tipped staff. He’s even mapped out all of the dragon caves in the land so that everybody can avoid them.

But the Wizard’s problems began when he created his mystical Robes of Many Pockets. It sounded so useful to be able to carry his vast collection of potions, scrolls and spellbooks around with him all the time, but he forgot to write down the instructions, and now he can’t figure out what pockets hold what. When he reaches into one, he can’t predict whether he’ll pull out a rabbit, a wheelbarrow, or a hungry troll!

Did you get a wizard?  Does yous have a plain blue slope piece for the legs, or is it painted.  Tell me about it in the comments below.  Thanks!
