LEGO Minifigures LEGO Minifigure LEGO Minifigure Series LEGO Minifigure Series 25

Since their debut in 1978, LEGO Minifigures have undergone a remarkable transformation. Originally simple and featureless, these miniature characters have evolved into the beloved LEGO Minifigure characters we love today. Originating from the need for smaller figures to fit inside LEGO sets, Minifigures gained popularity and received intricate details on their bodies and faces. Now iconic, these figures span various themes, captivating LEGO enthusiasts of all ages with classic knights, pirates, modern superheroes, and movie characters. The LEGO Minifigure series, launched in 2010, introduced a collectible element with surprise characters hidden in blind bags, offering an enjoyable and unpredictable experience. With three collections released each year, normally in January, May and September, featuring diverse themes like Disney, The Simpsons, Harry Potter, and more, LEGO Minifigures continue to captivate fans worldwide. Having loved the last LEGO Minifigure Series 24, we now take a look at LEGO Minifigure Series 25 which is due to be launched in the new year.
