One of Batman’s staunchest allies, the hard-working Commissioner Gordon™ has spent his entire long career cleaning up the streets of Gotham City. Ever since his days as a beat cop, he has always performed his duty by the good old-fashioned rules, no matter what chaos Gotham City’s many super-villains may have thrown his way. Now that he’s retiring, what changes lie in store for his beloved city?
“Oh no, not old Stinky again!”When there’s a bat in your belfry, a rattlesnake in your rafters, or an elephant in your swimming pool, you call the Animal Control specialist. She knows all the best tricks for luring unwanted critter visitors out of their hiding places, capturing them humanely, and then transporting them out into the wild to be safely released.There’s one particular skunk, though, that’s been giving her a lot of trouble. No matter how many times she removes him, he always seems to find his way right back to the Animal Control office. She’s starting to think he might like her. It’s almost sweet, but he’s a wild animal, and so whenever he makes his fragrant appearance, it’s into the net and back to the woods he goes!
“3…2…1…KABOOM!” Who likes countdowns? The Firework Guy likes countdowns! No matter what the party’s theme may be, he’ll find a reason to count down to zero and then explode… with noisy excitement and good cheer! The Firework Guy will count down to anything awesome – midnight on New Year’s Eve, the lights turning on at a surprise party, and especially the 40th anniversary of the modern LEGO® Minifigure. He can’t wait for the 1978 Police Officer to show up at the party so he can count down to all of the candles on the birthday cake getting blown out and then throw confetti everywhere. Woohoo!
Ursula the Sea Witch desires nothing less than control over the entire ocean. She uses her powerful magic to make bargains with desperate mermaids and mermen, granting their wishes but demanding a price that they can rarely pay. She pretends to want to help Ariel, but Ursula’s seeming generosity is all part of her wicked scheme to steal King Triton’s trident and rule the seas!
Clan of the Cave Batman
A good Dark Knight Detective is prepared for any eventuality. Maybe he’ll have to travel back in time to the Paleolithic era. Maybe he’ll need to go undercover as part of a museum exhibit. Maybe he’ll fight a bad guy who’s really scared of leopard-print fabrics. Either way, Batman™ is ready for prehistoric action thanks to his totally old-school caveman costume!
“Me? Why, I’m just a simple businessman.” It must be stated from the outset that the Businessman is simply an ordinary office worker. He is emphatically not, for example, a highly-trained secret agent who goes on daring undercover missions on behalf of the Crown, traveling under a humble guise in order to thwart the plots of mad scientists and evil masterminds all around the globe. The Businessman’s bowler hat is most certainly not packed with hi-tech devices ranging from sophisticated listening gear to a deployable grappling line. Likewise, his perfectly normal briefcase does not contain a hidden microcomputer, and his newspaper is not a well-camouflaged data-pad with a remote satellite uplink. Nor do his glasses allow him to see in the dark or magnify distant objects a thousandfold. No, he’s just a regular, everyday businessman, and any rumors to the contrary should be strictly ignored.
Feisty, sassy and sophisticated, Daisy Duck is never afraid to speak her mind and always steals the spotlight with her charm and glamor. As Donald Duck’s sweetheart and Minnie Mouse’s best friend, she is very loyal and a romantic at heart…but watch out for her competitive side, because she doesn’t back down from a challenge!
1978 Police Officer
“It’s been forty years, but I haven’t aged a day!” Here he is, the famous minifigure who started it all! The friendly Police Officer was one of the very first modern LEGO® Minifigures from the first three LEGO Play Themes of Town, Castle, and Space. He’s even got a mini version of the box from his classic LEGO set. What an amazing adventure he’s had! The 1978 Police Officer may have replaced his original torso sticker with a painted uniform, and his little Town may have grown up into a giant LEGO City, but he’s still the same smiling character that kids were playing and building with 40 years ago. He couldn’t be happier than he is at this party that all of the other minifigures are throwing to celebrate his birthday. Will you discover this hard-to-find fellow in your next LEGO Minifigures bag?
“Whoops!” The poor Clumsy Guy must have the worst luck of any Minifigure. No matter how safe and careful he tries to be, something always goes disastrously wrong. If there’s a banana peel around, he’ll slip on it every time. If someone has left a skateboard near the stairs, he’ll be in for a bumpy ride straight to the X-ray machine. Even when he’s standing in the middle of a crowd, he’s the only one who’s likely to get bonked on the head by a plummeting ice meteorite. Fortunately for the hapless Clumsy Guy, LEGO® City has some of the best doctors and medical care around. Whatever bumps, bruises, scratches and dents he may receive during his misadventures, they’re ready to fix him up with casts, bandages, crutches and anything else that he may need to get him back on his feet and on the mend…right up until his next accident, anyway!
“Om nom nom nom.” Have you ever met a semi-intelligent ambulatory plant? One very alarmed Minifigure recently has! The Plant Monster used to be the Monster Scientist’s houseplant until the silly mad doctor accidentally gave it too much of his experimental super-growth fertilizer, causing the horticultural horror to sprout arms, legs, spiky vines, and one huge appetite. Lurking in gardens, bushes, and anywhere else that’s green, the Plant Monster bides its time and then springs out to swallow up passers-by with a gulp and a happy smack of its leafy flytrap mouth. Oddly, it isn’t actually a carnivorous species (though it doesn’t seem to know that), and as long as it gets plenty of sunlight and regular watering, it just spits its victims out again after a day or two – smelling slightly of lettuce, and with a very strange story to tell!
Vacation the Joker
He may have helped Batman™ save Gotham City this time, but The Joker™ is also the one who put it in danger in the first place. Still, he’s not going to pass up the opportunity to go on vacation with his new buddies! The Joker has everything he needs: stylish sunglasses, a camera to capture happy memories, The Joker Toxin popsicle, and a blow-up duckie ring filled with laughing gas. Time for some fun!
“Kicking and boxing – it’s the perfect combination!” The Kickboxer has always loved combining different activities. As a kid, she would merge her chores and hobbies so she could try hockey-lawnmowing and homework-fingerpainting. But as she got older, not every combination worked out so well. Football-archery caused some trouble, and swim-jogging was nearly a disaster. With the tough sport of kickboxing, though, she’s finally found just the right combo. And thanks to lots of training, she’s gotten really good at it, too. When she’s in the ring with her protective equipment on, boxing and kicking away against a skilled opponent, she sure is glad that she didn’t go with her other idea of parasail-bowling!
“Brains! Brains! We’ll win by using our braaaiiins!” The Zombie Cheerleader is a star student at Zombie University who has personally come up with some of the cheer squad’s best new cheers, from the one about the brains, to the other one about the brains, to the other OTHER one about the brains. That last one is everybody’s favorite, because it’s just so catchy. For a zombie, she has a really upbeat attitude. You’ve got to be extra inspirational when your players’ legs and heads tend to fall off in the middle of a game, which is why she’s also pretty good with duct tape. Her whole zombie family comes out to watch her cheer, and while she’s happy to see her businessman dad take time out of his busy schedule, she’s a little embarrassed at the way her pirate great-great-uncle keeps threatening to keelhaul the other team.
