Series 5 Lego Minifigure Decoding Cheat

Okay, I'm aware most of you know about the Lego Series, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 minifigures, but a smaller percentage of you know how to find out what minifigure is in the bag. Some of you might just ask a person that works there, others will take a random guess, and others just don't really care what they get. I'm about to tell you a way some people know. You have to feel what's inside the bag. You have to look with your fingers for the big or distinct pieces of the minifigure. Here's a list of how to get the right minifigure by feel.

Gladiator: He has a huge bulky helmet, but he’s also the only fig with a knife/sword. 

Evil Dwarf: The winged helmet is bulky, but so are the pieces for the Royal Guard & Gladiator, but make sure to feel the wings on the side of the helmet. The difference in the shield between the Gladiator’s is that the front of the Evil Dwarf’s is smooth.

Royal Guard: This guy should be easy because his HUGE hat. Check to feel the rifle to make sure.

Lumberjack: The only “baseball hat” in this series. His axe is easily recognizable. But be sure that you feel the attached axe head on the end, or it could be the Evil Dwarf’s axe handle.

Cave Woman: The bone is a dead giveaway, (like the pun?) the club is like the caveman's in series 2.

Detective: His hat is double billed, feel for the magnify glass to confirm.

Cleopatra: Huge wedge dress, and snake are easy to feel.

Ice Fisherman: The fish, and fishing pole are the giveaway here.

Small Clown: His bowler hat feels similar to the Detective’s hat. He also has a pie. Feel short legs with no hinge to confirm, may feel like Evil Dwarf's short legs.

Boxer: His that his boxing gloves are attached to his hands. He’s one of the toughest to find if you don’t know that small fact.

Zookeeper: I expect the monkey to be easy to feel, either that or the banana.

Graduate: He’s the only fig with a 2×2 tile and his graduation cap is what I'd use to confirm. It’s square, with 1 different feeling corner for the tassel and a little raised bump in the middle of the top.

Snowboarder Guy: Like the last two snowboarders, the snowboard gives it away.

Fitness Instructor: Big long hair, and the “boom box” feels like a brick with a handle.

Godzilla: The tail is attached on the back like a backpack, you might even need to feel for his head.

Gangster: This minifigure has the smallest part in the series, his pistol, look for that, or find his case.
