Birthday Party Girl
“Happy birthday, everybody!” The Birthday Party Girl wasn’t around in 1978 when the first modern LEGO® Minifigure was made. In fact, she wasn’t around at all until 2018. She’s brand-new! But even though she doesn’t yet know the long and amazing history of minifigures, from the earliest play themes to the newest special parts and characters, she can’t help but get caught up in the excitement of celebrating 40 years of minifigure fun. After all, this isn’t just the most amazing and thrilling party she’s ever been to – it’s also her very first one!
“SURPRISE!!!” The other minifigures thought they were going to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the modern LEGO® Minifigure with a delicious, freshly-baked cake. Boy, were they surprised when the Cake Guy jumped out! What a mess! Now there’s cake and icing everywhere, and nobody’s even sure where the candles ended up. It’s a good thing the minifigures all have a good sense of humor… and an even better thing that somebody brought extra cupcakes to the party! Hey, how did the Cake Guy even fit in there?!?
One of Batman’s oldest foes, Hugo Strange™ has no powers except for his brilliant but warped mind. He uses his scientific and psychiatric skills to perform weird experiments, from creating mutated monsters to attempting to deduce Batman’s secret identity. Whatever you do, don’t call him “Doctor” – the distinguished medical profession would never stand for it!
Hot-tempered Scotsman Groundskeeper Willie knows that manners are for weak-kneed, bath-taking lily-huggers! The groundskeeper and janitor at Springfield Elementary, Willie is proud to call his tractor, Willy, his best friend. This makes his floor buffer, Willy, very jealous.
DATE NIGHT HOMER
Homer Simpson may not be the most attentive husband around, but he sure loves his wife Marge. So when an important occasion or anniversary arrives (and by some miracle he remembers it), Homer dresses to the nines and acts the proper gentleman for her benefit. On rare occasions, he’s even been known to say “please” and “thank you.” What a guy Date Night Homer is!
“Go forth, my minions, and bring me the universe!” With a name far too regal (not to mention too long and too unpronounceable) to mention here, the Alien Villainess rules over a vast interstellar empire devoted to one thing and one thing only – total universal conquest! From her towering citadel on the Imperial Throneworld, she sends out fleets of flying saucers to every corner of the galaxy, ordering the commander of each to invade and conquer any planet they find. From the top of her pulsating purple brain to the tips of her tentacles, the Alien Villainess craves nothing less than absolute control over all of outer space. That’s why it’s so annoying when people try to stop her, especially that pesky Intergalactic Girl who keeps arriving at the last minute, escaping her brilliantly inescapable traps and messing up her plans. Don’t they realize that the universe would be so much better if only everybody would swear eternal allegiance to her?
“Ho ho ho!” Rumor has it that a legendary minifigure known as Santa comes flying through the sky on his sleigh to give out shiny new bricks to anyone who needs to get some building done. Then, as soon as he’s done, he’s off on his way again with a belly-shaking laugh. But who is this jolly old man of mystery? He’s supposed to live up at the North Pole, but the LEGO® Arctic team never reported running into him during their millennial expedition. And where does he get all of those bricks, if not at the LEGO factory in Denmark? The world may never know for sure!
Garmadon Propulsion Laboratories (GPL) is an exciting place to work, where else are you likely to get shot out of a volcano. Garmadon's team of tech experts are creating something really wicked for Garmadon and this tech expert is the brains of the operation.
“Justice never rests!” Even a mythological spirit of protection can’t be everywhere all the time. When the Battle Goddess decided that her mission of justice could use a helping hand, she selected a warrior of the ancient world who had proven both his valor in combat and his great love of peace. Granting him the gift of immortality, she gave him golden, winged armor and armed him with a mighty spear of thunder. Throughout the ages, the Flying Warrior has tirelessly carried out his duty of defending the weak and innocent. To pay the bills (even an ancient hero needs an apartment and the occasional pizza), he’s recently become a museum guide. Tour groups are really impressed by his booming voice and first-hand knowledge of centuries of history, and kids on class trips love it when he accidentally knocks things over with his wings!
SHARK SUIT GUY
“Yikes! Was that a fin?!” The Shark Suit Guy watched a scary shark movie once, and he’s been afraid of them ever since. For a long time, he didn’t dare go into the water at the beach, and he even avoided swimming pools and bathtubs just in case. He was worried that he might run into sharks everywhere he went — sharks on the left, sharks on the right, mutant sharks, laser sharks, cyborg sharks, sharks on land, sea and air. But then he started to learn more about sharks and how important they are for the ocean’s ecology, and he found out that they’re not so scary after all. In fact, they’re pretty cool! To celebrate his newfound appreciation for his finny friends, he’s decided to dress up like a shark himself. Now the Shark Suit Guy may still get a little jumpy whenever he passes a mirror, but at least he knows that if he runs into a real shark, it’ll think he’s a pal!
“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!
The Swamp Creature
This washed-up warrior may be a little green around the gills, but he is still willing to go ‘kraken’ the whip, wading into battle to defend Apocalypseburg.
“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!
