Sneak Peek at Lego Minifigs Series 6!

I don't even think series 5 of Lego's blind-packaged minifigs has hit stores yet, but Brickpedia already has pictures of half of series six up. Those cunning Danish bastards at Lego have their enslaved Oompaloompa workers pumping out the best, most detailed, and creative Lego sets we've ever seen, and it looks like the series six figures are continuing to lift the bar so high you won't even know it's there.

Highlights from Series 6 include:

This bitchin' Minotaur. (No America. It's pronounced minoTOR not "tar", you freakish minotards. And there's no such word as "Legos". Double punch!).

But that's not all! There's more after the jump!

If that bull-faced beefbarian is too much for you, you can neutralize him with this dapper butcher:

I love that he's holding a mutton chop AND sporting muttonchops. Looks like Lego is really raising the "steaks". HAHAHAHAHAhAAcckgarrgghh.

And look at this wonderful, symbolic gift from that country you hate!:

She's perfect for my upcoming Lego re-enactment of the sequel to Ghostbusters.

But best of all is this truly magnificent genie:

Has that tail piece ever been used before? This one really is among the best they've ever made. If not THE best. And perfect for my Lego re-enactment of that Shaquille O'Neal rapping genie movie.

You can see the rest at Brickpedia here.


  1. I still need about half of the current series! I love that Lego is fully realizing the power and potential of the minifig.

  2. It's true! It's like they've finally thrown ALL the rules out the window. Their design meetings must be a lot of fun because it seems like they'll entertain just about anything now.

  3. They'll entertain anything except for female dress legs.

    The bottom piece of the witch from the earlier series & the bottom of the Statue of Liberty kills me. It looks so out of place today. With the amount of unique pieces they make today that may have little or no reuse, I'm really surprised this one hasn't been updated.
