I was going to call this figure an "Eskimo" when I started the review, but I checked LEGO's site first and apparently it's actually an Ice Fisherman. Which I guess is true, but I've got Playmobil Eskimo figures and they look exactly like this guy. Except, you know, they're like an inch taller and don't have yellow skin. If he had a different jacket, I'd probably go with a different stereotype.
The figure has the standard construction with a swell hood, fur-lined in a different color than the rest of the outfit. His jacket looks quite warm and fluffy, with shall we say hand-stitched details. Subtle patches of fuzz are sketched on nicely, giving him a wooly look. This doesn't look like an off-the-shelf coat, and certainly isn't a 21st-century design. It does look neat, though.
Rounding out the figure is a cool fishing pole plus a fish, which is seemingly a common thing in these figures. While I do wish they'd just make the fish yellow and give us all the Babel Fish toy we've been dreaming of, green is still good and it clamps onto the rod's "hook" nicely. As always, the figure has no problem holding his accessories, which I think is one of the reason LEGO continues to thrive while some other action toy lines struggle. They work correctly. For the price this isn't a bad figure, although it's not like you're going to need yet another LEGO man in your collection unless you're got a thing for very cold figures or are collecting them all.
