There isn’t a monster, prison tower, or evil tyrant in the world that the Barbarian wouldn’t try to demolish. With powerful muscles from a life in the savage wilderness and a sword gripped in each hand, he smashes, bashes, and crashes his way through every obstacle in his path, no matter how tough or dangerous it may be.
People say that the Barbarian is utterly unstoppable, and they’re almost right. He doesn’t blink at ogres, trolls, or many-headed hydras, and he laughs in the faces of evil sorcerers and axe-wielding viziers. So what’s the one thing that gives this burly brawler pause? He’s terrible at spelling. That’s why he’s started spending his weekends at the library, practicing his reading!
The Barbarian is a great representation of what one actually would have looked like. He has the awesome warrior-ish hairpiece, which most amazing warriors have (Aragorn, Boromir, Dastan, etc.). He definitely is one of the top five minifigures in series 11. I'm not really sure if a barbarian (or any soldier) could weild two swords, although short, at the same time. I'd say the torso fits him nicely enough, though they could've added a but more detail on the back, which is just plain yellow, except for the strap and the belt. I do like the legs as well.
Overall, I think this is one of the five best minifigure in this series. So here are the ratings:
