#57: LEGO Minifigures series 11 - Island Warrior

Next up in my finds from LEGO Minifigures series 11 is the Island Warrior. This falls under the ethnic stereotype/warrior themes from the minifigures line. His main accessories are the spear and tiki mask. I dig the retro kitschy appeal of tiki masks, so without it I probably would have passed on this guy. Unfortunately, the mask is a soft plastic. I don't know if it is a common problem to every figure, but on mine, the loop that holds it on his neck is a little bent, so that the mask itself angles outwards. Because it's soft, that means it's probably not too difficult to train back into place, but annoying nonetheless.

Underneath the mask, the island warrior is sporting some tribal tattoos, and a bowl cut with a bone through it. 

Finding the island warrior by touch is pretty easy. The bone and the spear are both distinctive, as is the mask. Like I mentioned before, the mask is made from a softer plastic than I was expecting, so keep that in mind when you're feeling for pieces. 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.
