“It’s the perfect crime!” When night falls over the city, the Jewel Thief is in her element. As the police patrol the streets below, her grappling gun takes her up to the roof. There, she easily deactivates the alarm system, cuts through the skylight glass, and lowers herself down to the security vault. Somersaulting through the laser grid, she skillfully cracks the locking code and escapes with the most valuable diamond inside, pausing only to give the guard dog a friendly scratch under the chin. But there’s no point to a well-orchestrated theft if nobody knows that it was you who did it. Other famous burglars have their own signature calling cards that they leave at the scene of the crime, so she’s picked one that seems just right. What better to represent a Jewel Thief than a precious gem? That’s why she always drops off the jewel she swiped in her last caper whenever she steals a new one!
“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!
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!
“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!
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.
MAGGIE AND SANTAS LITTLE HELPER
A former racing dog, Santa’s Little Helper‘s last-place losing streak finally ended when he was adopted by the Simpsons. Ever since, he’s been an integral part of the family: fetching the morning paper off Flanders’s driveway, digging holes in the yard (whether or not he has anything to bury in them), and devouring any people-food within reach. Oh yeah, and Maggie’s here, too!
“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!
“Just hold still and I’ll make it all better.” The big-hearted Veterinarian has empathy for all the creatures of the LEGO® world, from fuzzy puppies and kittens to mutant killer whales, laser-guided cyborg sharks and police alligators. There’s just something about how caring and patient she is that calms animals right down, no matter how big or scaly or pointy-toothed they may be. Once her patients are relaxed, the Veterinarian gives them a thorough check-up and treats anything that might be wrong. She’ll be happy to recommend some healthy treats so you can spoil your favorite furry friend, too. Animals love the Veterinarian, and often leave unexpected presents outside her office door. She doesn’t mind the carrots that the rabbits drop off, but she isn’t quite as fond of the owl pellets on her welcome mat when the local wizard is in town!
Springfield Elementary fourth-grade teacher Edna Krabappel works diligently to provide her students with precisely the minimum education required by law. At first glance, she may seem unenthusiastic. And she is. Enthusiastically so! But underneath her hard shell, Bart’s teacher is a woman who deeply loves having her summers off. Why give that up just because of some aggravating kids?
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!
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!
Cowboy Costume Guy
“I just rode here from the Old West, and boy, is my horse tired!” The Cowboy Costume Guy is a total goofball. Who else would not only dress up as a cowboy, but also make it look like he’s riding around on a horse all the time? Everybody likes having the Cowboy Costume Guy around. He’s friendly, he’s funny, and he knows a whole stable full of really terrible horse puns. Just don’t do anything to make him turn around quickly, or that horse head and tail will knock over everything around him. And when the party is over, he’ll wave his hat in the air, shout “Giddyap,” and gallop off into the sunset!
“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!
