lego lord of the rings

coming this summer: lego lord of the rings minifigs! i especially like the look of ‘the one ring’, below. it’s strange how some collaborations work better than others. i’m a big fan of the star wars lego, but not so much of the harry potter ones.

i did a post a few months ago about the lego minifigures series, a collectable set of ‘blind boxed’ characters. and coming soon is the second series!

Each LEGO® minifigure is inspired by movies, sports, history or everyday life. Your mystery minifigure might be one of the following: Life Guard, Karate Master, Explorer, Disco Dude, Witch, Weight Lifter, Vampire, Traffic Cop, Surfer, Spartan Warrior, Skier, Ringmaster, Pop Star, Pharaoh, Mime or Mariachi.

lego minifig turns 30!

via designboom via icon eye (icon design magazine online) i have discovered the lego minifig has turned 30! from iconeye:

“It has been 30 years since Lego launched its much-loved minifigure, designed by Jens Nygaard Knudsen. The familiar little yellow men and women with funny hair and bemused expressions were the culmination of years of work. Knudsen filed and sawed Lego bricks, even experimenting with tin prototypes, to create the stocky flexible design icon we see today – since 1978 the design has only been modified by a matter of millimetres. Each body is three bricks high and comprises eight parts. It’s designed to hold a Lego brick in its hand, and to plug stand or sitting on top of other Lego elements. The figures were totally asexual until the first female figure, a nurse, arrived in 1980. Since then the population has exploded and all sort of personalities from Harry Potter to Steven Spielberg and Spiderman can now be seen to be climbing all over Lego creations all over the world. Here’s a gallery of the best and most creative over the years.”
