Minifigure Museum: Santa (Series 8)

Santa:  LEGO Series 8 Minifigure

Santa is a minifigure from Series 8 that comes with a red hat, white beard, and a brown sack.

Series 8 was released near the end of the 2012 calendar year which happened to make the Santa figure one of the most popular minifigures at the time of the release.

The Santa figure has a red suit with an all red pants.  There is no printing on the back of the figure.  The figure also has white hands (symbolizing warm winter gloves) which is a nice touch.

The only real accessory is the brown pack of toys that Santa carries.  The bag can sit on a regular LEGO base plate which is nice.  I'm not sure there's a lot of uses for the sack besides in a Christmas scene (it's too small to represent something like a trash bag).  Even so, it's a unique piece in my collection.

Overall, the Santa figure is one of the better Santa LEGO figures that I've seen (this isn't the first time LEGO created a Santa figure).  It is the only Christmas figure (to date) in the various collectible minifigure series, though I wouldn't be surprised to see an elf or something like that (maybe even a Mrs. Claus) at some point in the future.
