Mime is money! This LEGO Minifigures Series 2 Mime figure is basically a joke held over from the 1970s, when it was still acceptable to be a mime and also to make mime jokes. (For those unaware of this fact, we're in a post-mime culture.) This standard sized minifigure has a hat and three different heads, so you can make him happy, sad, or... I don't know what that third one is. What's the word for "about to defecate one's pants?" I bet the French have a really classy word for it.
Why buy this figure? Extra heads and a beret should be reason enough, but the LEGO artisans did a good job on him too. He has a vest on over his striped shirt, explaining the unpainted back and the painted arms. This is a great figure to get if you do a lot of LEGO world building, because a street mime is the perfect addition to the outside of a busy street or as a great mugger victim. I'm really stoked I got this one because I love a good LEGO mugging. (Mugging image courtesy Lou Dobbs.)
