The Minifig turns 30!

by

On Lugnet yesterday it was announced that the LEGO Minifigure turns 30 today. Being just a little bit older, I can’t remember a time before Minifigures. In fact one of the first sets that I remember having is the LEGO Homemaker Kitchen which had one of the very first Minifigs, a girl with black pigtails.

Minifigs, in all their countless varieties, are one of the best things that LEGO ever invented. They make a model or scene that much better. And maybe its just that they are so darn cute! (Even the “bad guys”) Who doesn’t love to have a Minifig version of Han Solo or Batman? Spiderman and Sponge Bob are forever immortalized in LEGO. Heck, you can even make yourself!

Who knew that they have been around for three decades!

So thank you LEGO for creating Minifigures. ;)
