I immediately thought that the Lumberjack was some sort of Monty Python reference, and when I say his motto "I'm okay!" it was pretty obvious that the people making these figures are probably the same kind of people writing and reading columns about these figures. He looks like he might also be in the paper towel business.
The figure makes great use of existing parts, the body was painted up with a beard and a plaid shirt. In case you didn't know, cutting down trees requires plaid. The pants look vaguely like faded jeans, a pale blue color devoid of markings. I should also note, the figure has printing on his arms and back too-- LEGO spent a little extra money on decoration for this guy. He even has a beaver hat-- which is funny-- and what I am assuming are the initials "Kd" on his shirt. But that doesn't make a lot of sense... an d neither does "Kol." Either way, LEGO keeps springing for teeny tiny details.
In addition to his swell hat, he's got an axe. He's much like Gimli in this regard. The figure has a big smile, plus little smile lines around his eyes. As far as raw decoration goes, it's pretty impressive but most important of all? It's fun.
Get it cheap while you can! This year's LEGO City theme sets are largely based in the woods, with forest firefighters and police officers. And bears. And what I assume are hill folk. Naturally, this batch of heroes and future guest stars on Cops need a lumberjack to keep things in order, and this one turned out really well. As a batch of pieces, or as the sum of his parts, he's easily worth the three or so bucks.
