Do you or your kids like to collect LEGO minifigures? You could leave them scattered around the room where you could step on one, or the dog could try to eat them, or you could store and display them in a more appropriate place.
Baby Yoda (aka “The Child”) is arguably the most adorable character in the history of Star Wars. We love his expressions, his curiosity, and the fact that he also has badass Jedi powers. LEGO has their own official Baby Yoda minifig in the works, but the only way to get one initially will be with the $129 Razor Crest model, and even then you’ll have to wait until September to get one.
There are few things more recognizable in the world of toys than a classic LEGO minifig. Sure, we’ve seen them dressed up in all kinds of costumes and color schemes, but at the end of the day, a minifig is a minifig.
Do you love LEGO as much as I do? Here’s a fun way to add a little extra LEGO to your life, and without using a single brick. These fun papercraft models let you add some giant minifigs (is that an oxymoron?)
There aren’t many toys that are more recognizable and iconic than LEGO bricks and minifigs. While I’ve always wanted to make a giant minifig from LEGO bricks, I rather like this shortcut – a jumbo-sized minifig you can buy already made for your desktop or bookshelf.
If you are a real LEGO fanatic, you have probably wondered at some point, what you would look like as a minifig. Well, you may not be able to transform yourself into a plastic figure, but this shopping bag will transform your hands into LEGO hands in an instant.
Forget riding your bike and having your hair fly in the wind. You are going to look much cooler wearing this LEGO minifig hair helmet. It was created by European creative agency DDB to get kids “excited about bicycle safety.”
I like Star Wars, I like LEGO, and I like watches. These LEGO Star Wars watches over at ThinkGeek are the trifecta of geeky time telling. Each watchband is made from LEGO links and is adjustable to fit smaller wrists.
I was watching the odd flick Midnight Special last night with my daughter and she recognized Adam Driver as “That dude from Star Wars.” Shortly after that she also pointed out he was tall, as in the tallest person in the scene with all the military in the room.
I’ve seen some crazy LEGO stuff over the years, from artists creating portraits using nothing but bricks, to epic life-size builds. I lack any of the skills needed to make anything resembling a self-portrait in LEGO.
I’m sure there are small companies and individuals that make bootleg Dragon Ball minifigures. The upcoming Figme, on the other hand, are straight outta Bandai. They’re also about the same height as minifigs – around 1.5″ – but I don’t know if their hands and feet are compatible with LEGO pieces.
Flickr user Nick Chen aka solscud made a cute collection of Star Wars minifigures wearing their respective vehicles. For instance, Kylo Ren has his command shuttle, Han Solo is wearing the Millennium Falcon and Rey is, well, in the Millennium Falcon, but with the new different radar dish.
Korean accessory shop Leese Design is branching out from making iPhone cases with an apparel line for minifigs. Its LEGO Mini Clothes are made of washable fabric and come in a variety of designs. They’re not as detailed as action figure clothes though.
LEGO-compatible figure maker Crazy Bricks came up with a way to make minifigs more versatile, opening up a variety of poses. Called Crazy Arms, they add horizontal straight and bent arms to minifigs.
To use Crazy Arms, you first remove a minifig’s torso and insert the Crazy Arms brackets into the holes on its hips.
I’m not such a super fan of Star Wars today as I was back in the ’80s when I was young. I had all the stuff back then, all the toys, action figures, bedding, and pretty much anything else that had Star Wars on it.
Eyeball this eyeball. The Ultimate Collector Series LEGO TIE Fighter 79095 is a 19.5″ high, 12″ long, and 12.2″ wide scale model of the Empire’s staple starfighter. It will come with a 360º display stand, a fact plaque and a new TIE fighter pilot minifig with a blaster.
