My 9 year old son brought this to my attention. This fall Lego is coming out with a new minifigure called the Island Warrior. Thought it was pretty cool and even cooler that he brought it to my attention.

Yeah, I just noticed this myself earlier this week. My 7 yr old is really into lego. It looks like it will be part of series 11. These "blind bags" set you back about $3-$4 retail, but you never know which one you're gonna get. Also interesting to note that they released a hula girl mini-fig a few series/years
back (series 3).

Look up Bump Dot Codes for Mini Figures.
When Series 11 comes out you should be able to identify the various models.

Oh, that's no fun. It's supposed to be a surprise!

If you only want to get packs that have Island warriors inside.

Many bar code readers for smartphone will tell you what is in the bag.

the army is beginning....

I figured out how to feel for the tiki dude through the bag. So far my hit rate is 100%

The trick is that his mask is made of rubber. Its flexible. None of the other figures in Series 11 have flat flexible peices in their bags. If you squeeze the package and feel something flexible then is highly likely that its the Island Warrior.

Many Target stores sell them. Look for series 11 in the green bags.

My luck wasn't as good as Monkeyman's, but I think I've got the hang of it now. I think the spear is the give-away. Once you feel that in there, you can get the confirmation of the flexible mask piece.

Good luck!

For what it's worth, I used the tip about the rubber mask and got it on my first try.

Tiki Farm could learn something from this. The "Tiki Mug of Mystery". Ten different designs. When you buy one you get a random design shipped to you and you won't know which you'll get until it arrives. Oh, and, of course, some of the designs have much fewer of them made than others.

P.S. That's actually a great idea kenbo-jitsu.
