Scooby minifigure guide for the completist

LEGO Scooby faces

I was unsure of which sets to buy to get different variations. For instance I noticed there was 3x different Scooby figures... Scooby with goggles, Scooby sitting and Scooby standing/walking. Actually upon closer inspection it appears there are THREE different HEADS (not 2).
Also I wanted to know if there were different variations of Shaggy and Daphne in different sets. I knew Shaggy had at least 2 different shirts. But is his face different in each. So I used checked the Design IDs for parts in Brickset and in LEGO Bricks & Pieces (those are the five digit numbers that I use in this post). If I provided the Design ID then I did check Brickset and Bricks & Pieces for the information. If I did not provide a Design ID it is only based upon my visual inspection of images.

Here are my findings...

Home: LEGO Salt and Pepper Set 850705 review

LEGO salt & pepper shaker

LEGO large scale bricks

Home: LEGO Salt and Pepper Set 850705
  • Pieces: 2 (plus 2 rubber stoppers)
  • $6.99 retail (US)
  • Ages: 4+
  • release date (unsure... possibly 2013)
  • 0 minifigures
 I had considered purchasing this for sometime but always passed because it only consisted of two parts (both a salt shaker and pepper shaker). I always thought they would be fun displays on a shelf or desk at work or home. Each time I passed because there was always other sets that I wanted to purchase. 

This time though I needed roughly $5 for my online purchase to reach the $75 threshold for free shipping and the Winter Soldier minifigure/polybag.
