Yeah! Managed to get my hands on the special series of LEGO Minifigures that are released for London 2012 Olympic Games. The LEGO 8909 Team GB Minifigures features nine athlete Minifigures in Team GB sports gear. They are only released in the United Kingdom and Ireland but I managed to get some with the help of a friend.
The nine athletes of LEGO 8909 Team GB are:
- Brawny Boxer – Punching his way to the top, this lean machine in blue is ready to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee for Team GB!
- The Stealth Swimmer – Like a fish in the water, the Stealth Swimmer is ready to torpedo through the water into to pole position.
- Relay Runner – Sprinting to reach the winning line, could this give Team GB a relay team victory?
- Judo Fighter – Taking down her opponent’s one at a time, this mistress of martial arts knocks down anything in her way to grasp that gold medal.
- Tactical Tennis Player – First on the court in his gleaming whites, this tennis ace will knock the white socks off of any competition.
- Flexible Gymnast – Balance and co-ordination is the name of the game for this agile Olympic contender.
- Wondrous Weightlifter – Powerlifting his personal best, the crowd looks on as this burley guy weighs up his chances of going for gold.
- Horseback rider – Riding her way to the last hurdle, this athlete won’t be horsing around when it comes to winning!
- Agile Archer – Complete with bow in hand, let’s hope this little fella will be on target on the day!
