|Cowgirl: Series 8 LEGO Collectible Minifigure|
When I was a kid, LEGO had a full western theme that I always thought was pretty cool. Unfortunately, that particular theme was released right around the time I stopped buying LEGO and moved on to other "older kid" toys. The Cowgirl would have fit right in with that old Western theme. Instead, she now resides in the Series 8 edition of the Collectible LEGO Minifigure Series.
I like the lasso quite a bit (wish I would have had that piece back when I was a kid)! I also like the look of the hat/hair piece when it's on the minifigure (the silver star is a nice touch) but I don't like how it looks when it's off the figure. All of the sudden the poor cowgirl is bald!
As for the front printing, I think it looks really nice. Unfortunately, there is no back or side printing though.
In the end, I can't say that the Cowgirl is my favorite minifigure that I've ever owned (or even within Series 8). That said, it is a decent figure - and it would probably have fairly high play value for kids which is something that shouldn't be overlooked (even with the so-called Collectible Minifigure line).
