LEGO minifigures are more than little people…

LEGO minifigures are more than little plastic people… they are in fact an OBSESSION! Watch out, or they will take over your life! 😮

I have to confess; collecting LEGO minifigures is a large part of why I sink most of my money into LEGO. If you are like me, one of the best parts of getting a new LEGO set is putting the little people together, and seeing whether they make it up to your expectations. So after a couple years of this you’re bound to have a LOT of LEGO minifigs, right? 😀

So, what do you DO with all those LEGO minifigures? After a little while the excitement of having your evil knights hang a poor little good soldier on the wall probably wears off, and you begin to realize that the fun behind LEGO minifigs really isn’t playing with them. It’s collecting them!!!

Just like with collecting stamps, coins, and Beanie Babies (is there anyone who still does that?), your obsession grows and grows and you find yourself with a TON of LEGO minifigs! If you are a TFOL (teen-fan-of-LEGO) you can also use collecting as an excuse to still “play” with LEGO. 😉

So, how many LEGO minifigures do you own? I have about 100 LEGO Star Wars minifigures (pictured below):

Do you have a favorite LEGO theme from which you collect the minifigures? LEGO Star Wars is the theme I collect. Or do you really like collecting LEGO Ninjago? Or some other theme? You probably also have one set of people, or one minifig that’s your most prized. Which one? By far the highlight of my collection is the Jedi:

Do you go out and try to get the exclusive LEGO minifigures? Like a golden C-3PO? Or a chrome Stormtrooper? I have the Celebration Luke and Han that are pretty special.

What character do you want the most? Have you always tried to get a Lord Garmadon from LEGO Ninjago, but just couldn’t get your hands on him? Or like me, have you always wanted a LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett? 😛

Now it is your turn! Please share in the comments section below:

  1. What is your favorite theme to get LEGO minifigs from?
  2. Which is your most precious minifig?
  3. Which LEGO minifigures do you really want to get?
  4. Roughly how many minifigures do you have?

You might also want to check out the LEGO Minifigures section, the LEGO Star Wars section, or the LEGO Ninjago section. Also the LEGO Castle theme and the upcoming LEGO Lord of the Rings theme come with great minifigures that would appeal to collectors. So let me know what you think! Thanks for sharing, and for reading my first post here! :)
