The Crazy Scientist is one of many figures which debuted in the Minifigures range, but is going to be exported to the main line (albeit with slight modifications) later this year. A redeco of the figure (same here) will be hitting in a couple of months, with zanier goggles and a moustache. This version is a little more, uh, "classic" in that he lacks futuristic-looking gear and has some green splatter, which feels very much out of the 1980s or 1990s. (Heck, take a look at Space Cadet Raphael from earlier this week!)
While not the most ornate figure in the batch, he does have a slick design with a white lab coat, black pants, and weird (and surprisingly detailed) red goggles-- the coloring is quite remarkable, plus he has sorta bushy grey eyebrows and giant teeth. You can almost hear him laughing maniacally while he puts together some cool new creation, or dares to drink whatever it is in his green beaker accessory. I'm going to guess he's finally going to be drinking his last juicebox of Ecto-Cooler.
While I would have preferred an unslimed version of the character, hey, it's still cool and s a nice way to populate our LEGO cities with more than cops, firemen, and the occasional banker. Obviously this guy is going to be operating largely behind closed doors, but it's nice to see an increasingly diverse set of skills being deployed in a LEGO City. I still eagerly await the day we get the LEGO comic book store employee.
