- "Sure, I’ll show you where my gold is hidden! Just close your eyes and spin around three times…"
The Leprechaun comes with a newly decorated green top hat with a buckle around the center. He has an orange beard printed on his face, and a torso that has a green bow tie and a three-leafed clover printed on it. He has green short legs, which makes him the fourth Collectable Minifigure to have short legs. His accessories are a new pot/cauldron that comes with 3, one by one stud pieces of gold.
Leprechauns are mythical creatures from the Irish mythology. They orignally wore red, rather then green clothing, and had blonde hair instead of orange. They orignally worked for Fairies and fixed their shoes. The Fairies paid the Leprechauns in gold coins which the Leprechauns placed inside their pots. If a Leprechaun is caught he would give you his pot of gold. In the current ages Leprechauns wear green and have orange hair (which appearance, this minifigure is based off). They live at the bottom of the rainbow, and if you catch them like in the older times they would give you gold.
- The pot is a new piece.
- This is the first set to have a green top hat.

“Sure, I’ll show you where my gold is hidden! Just close your eyes and spin around three times…”
The jolly but mischievous Leprechaun loves to play pranks on anyone who comes looking for his famous pot of gold. He can appear with a wink and vanish with a nod, hop down a rabbit-hole or leap to the top of the tallest tree, and even transform into a talking animal if it will help him pull off a really fun practical joke on an unsuspecting treasure-hunter.
The Leprechaun once misplaced his pot of gold and tried his luck at being a shoemaker, but it just didn’t work out. The problem was, almost no Minifigures actually wear shoes…and on most of the ones that do, they don’t come off!
