#56: LEGO Minifigures series 11 - Scarecrow

It seems like only yesterday that the previous series of LEGO minifigures was showing up in stores, and even more recently that the contents of series 11 was announced. Normally, they don't show up in my area until a few weeks after they start showing up elsewhere. So when I saw the display at Target the other day (again, not in the LEGO aisle), I was pretty surprised. This time around, the envelopes are a metallic green, which feels very festive in a Christmas-y way. I suppose that is appropriate as there are two Christmas-related minifigures in this series.

The scarecrow kind of fits in with the monsters/Halloween sub-theme that shows up in these minifigure releases, but he kind of doesn't. While scarecrows have potential for creepiness, this one has a big smile and looks very friendly. He's also clearly terrible at his job, as there is a crow perched atop his hat, completely not scared. The hat and the crow are separate pieces, so there is the option of displaying a slightly more effective scarecrow. I'm not sure if they've released a minifigure of the Batman villain the Scarecrow as part of that line, but if not, this could be a suitable, if perhaps too friendly, stand-in. 

The easiest way to identify the scarecrow by feel is by finding the pitchfork which is distinctive. As for the bump code, it is pictured above. There is a batch code of 218B3 stamped into the package as well, so different batch codes may have different bump codes.
