An AFOL. I love talking about, creating and playing with LEGO bricks.

Today we will be looking at the Green Arrow Minifigure from LEGO Dimensions Promotional Polybag set 71342. This set came out in 2016, has 7 pieces, and was designed for people 7 to 14.

The polybag was originally given away at E3 in 2016 and then used throughout the year at different events. It would be the first of only 2 promotional minifigures connected to the LEGO Dimensions Theme.

Unlike most Polybag Minifigures, this one actually came with a small instruction manual. Okay, only a quarter of the paper was used to actually build the figure and the rest was legal disclaimers and advertisements for the Dimension game, but how difficult is assembling a minifigure anyway.

Rather than making an exclusive printing, LEGO used the same minifigures found in set 76028 Darkseid Invasion for this promotion. The costume is based on the New 52 Comic Books and a closer resemblance to the popular CW television series Arrow. I’m glad they went in this modern direction, instead of the older Robin Hood phase of Green Arrow.

The simple shades of green used for the legs are underwhelming, but I love the rest of the figure.

The torso piece has a nice arrow buckle around the waist and the three different shades of green help make it look like he is wearing layers of clothing and armor as opposed to a single piece of fabric. Rather than giving this character an awkward quiver accessory that would not fit the modern style of his costume, the torso piece has a sleek looking case printed onto the back. However, with only five arrows, I hope he doesn’t run into too much trouble. It’s a shame the folded down hood piece covers this printing, but it’s a small price to pay to fully expose the face and blond hair.

his five o'clock shadow worn by the character is a great choice. It’s nice to see that a billionaire playboy who runs a huge company and fights crime might not have time to shave on a regular basis. Although, it does cause a problem in the back, where the hairpiece can’t completely cover the printing. The character comes with two expressions. His wide range of emotions are annoyed and angry. Clearly he needs a hug.

The compound bow seemed like a no brainer when it comes to accessories, since Quinn uses a combination of archery and technology to fight crime. A standard castle theme style bow would look out of place.

The Toy Tag does a good job matching the character. The Green Arrow symbol in front helps quickly identify what character belongs to this game piece. If anybody plays Dimensions, you know how important that feature is. The dark green with black stripes on the sides may seem simple, but reminds me of the fletching or feathers found on the back of an arrow.

Since Green Arrow was a promotional character and not available for just anybody to purchase, he was not given any unique abilities or unlocked any areas needed to reach 100% game completion. A smart choice, unless their goal was to anger lots of fans. His abilities in Acrobatics, Targeting, Grappling, and Pole Vaulting were an extremely valuable combo in the game and I found myself using him a lot. Especially with Pole Vaulting, which was surprisingly a rare ability.

While this character is great, because he is not an exclusive minifigure design or offers any unique additions to the gameplay itself, this set is best for those wanting to complete a LEGO collection or posting gameplay videos online. The majority of LEGO fans can rest comfortably knowing they are not missing out on anything special.
