If there’s ever another world war, please let it be fought with water balloons instead of weapons of mass destruction. Mr. Jimmy Zou has the right idea, though if you were one of those LEGO minifigs you might be pretty sore after being nailed with so much water. Thanks to Beyond the Brick for the compilation video.
LEGO fanatic Bricksie first shows off his massive collection of minifigs, then heads to the LEGO Store in the West Edmonton Mall for a look at a new addition – an inkjet printer that can create custom-printed Minifigs. The figures can be embellished with full-color printed clothing including icons, doodles, emojis, and text.
LEGO and Warner Bros. teamed up to create a series of Minifigs based on Looney Tunes characters.

Coyote, Porky Pig, Petunia Pig, Speedy Gonzales, Tasmanian Devil, and Marvin the Martian.
Celebrate your love for all things LEGO with this extensive history of Minifigures.

The book also comes with an exclusive orange spaceman Minifigure for your collection.
Chronicle Books teamed up with LEGO to create a series of fun jigsaw puzzles. Among them are these 1000-piece puzzles based on the faces and bodies of LEGO minifigs. With its repetitive details and yellow color scheme, the faces puzzle is definitely the more challenging of the two.
Brighten someone’s day with a personal note written on one of these official LEGO note cards from Chronicle Books. Each one features a cheerful, heartwarming, or hilarious scene played out by LEGO minifigs. The boxed set includes 20 cards and envelopes, including special-occasion cards for birthdays and holidays.
Beyond the Brick shares a noisy, yet hypnotic look inside one of the production lines at LEGO’s Kladno, Czech Republic, as a nearly endless stream of freshly-molded minifig parts roll out of sifting machines to be stamped with graphics to give them their identities. We love the part at the end showcasing all the designs.
The iconic LEGO minifig gets maxi-sized by designer Seb_E, who came up with 11″ tall sculpture made from regular-size LEGO bricks. The concept design includes interchangeable faces and t-shirts, and articulated hands, arms, and legs. The jumbo size meta-bricks are a nice touch too. Show your support on LEGO Ideas.
We’re doubtful that the makers of The LEGO Movie franchise will ever make a zombie movie, but that’s okay, because Paramotion Films has already gone and done it for us, with their extremely well-executed short film that proves that dismemberment doesn’t have to be gory – at least when it comes to minifigs.
LEGO pays tribute to its iconic minifigure with a 5:1 scale version carved from FSC-certified oak with adjustable plastic hands.

Available 11/3/19 to LEGO VIP members, then 11/8 for everyone.
Maker The Q built this awesome larger-than-life, fully-articulated LEGO minifig costume using cardboard and hot glue. With more than three weeks left until Halloween, you should have plenty of time to try and replicate the design yourself. Are you up to the challenge?
