LEGO minifig designs by Alexandre Boudon

I have recently come across the blog of French graphic-designer Alexandre Boudon. Apparently Alexandre has been working with LEGO designing minifigs, particularly for the Collectible LEGO Minifig series. 🙂

LEGO Minifigure Designs by Alexandre Boudon

What I find interesting is how many of Alexandre’s minifig designs have been used by LEGO already. Notice that the images on his blog are from 2010. Can you pick out all the minifigs LEGO already released in the Collectible Minifigure Series?

And of course the most interesting part of looking at these pictures is guessing which minifigs will be released in a future Collectible Minifig Series. I really like the idea of a Buddhist Monk, Pinocchio, and the Three Piglets. What about you? Which ones would you like to see in a future series?

Alexandre’s work didn’t just appear in the Collectible Minifig Series, but also regular LEGO sets. Check out the Swamp Monster below, that was included in one of the LEGO Monster Fighters sets. In fact the entire Monster Fighters theme seems to be based on Alexandre’s work as you can see here.

I also like these superhuman, monstrous giant LEGO figures by Alexandre. We can definitely have more of these! 😈

There are some other interesting LEGO designs on Alexandre’s blog that may indicate future LEGO sets and themes; LEGO Circus, LEGO Fairy Tales, and LEGO Mythology. How would you like these? 🙄

Alexandre Boudon is an awesome LEGO artist! I would love to be able to draw like this! You can check out more of his work at his blog. So what do you think? How do you like Alexandre’s work, and which minifigures and LEGO themes he presents would you like to see manifest in the future?  Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

I believe the Werewolf from series 4 was considered the Big Bad Wolf.

An Albert Einstein Minifigure would be amazing!

That would be awesome.

Skillful artist. I like the comic found on the blog.

Yes, I like the comics too. But there were only so many pictures I could include here. 🙂

Wouldn’t it be cool if LEGO had a site where you can go and create your own mini figure( not the basic like it is on pick a brick) I know their was a site where you can create a set( I don’t know if it’s still around.)

Like, a custom professional printing? Even without new molds, that would likely cost a fortune…

I think that set creation venture got cancelled because of high pricing and low demands. Also, kids found it too difficult to use, and in the end, only the software remained – as Lego Digital Designer.

Yes, as Hakan said; Design By Me has been canceled due to the high maintenance cost of the program. If you would like to get custom minifigs though you can always go to LEGO customizers who can both print minifig parts and also make custom moulded elements. Several of them take custom orders as well besides offering an extensive product line. 😉

I need that Clint Eastwood “man with no name” minifig.

Håkan July 31, 2013 at 2:00 PM

I think you just need to find the right head (?)

and the right hat (?)

Then you just need a custom poncho to pull it off …

Håkan July 31, 2013 at 4:57 PM

There seems to be about 5-10 different minifig heads already with thick eyebrows, beard/stubble and sullen lips. I think the main problem is to emulate that Eastwood squint, but if all of the pieces are “close enough”, it would suffice. There even is an official poncho found with the collectible minifig Mexican (not as suitable as a custom, though).

This was the best torso I could find. The slingshot looks a bit childish, but I think it could be hidden by the poncho… 😉

There is still a website where you can create your own LEGO project and then share your design and concept to gain supporters. Have you seen the new idea that is gaining traction very quickly? It’s an awesome Wizard of Oz set. I don’t think it will take very long to gain 10,000 votes! http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/43978

Håkan July 31, 2013 at 4:48 PM

The point of “Design By Me”, was that you would get a custom box and hand-picked pieces.

Cuusoo works in a different way, you supply a model, and if it gets enough votes, Lego would start a review process to see if it would be useful to create a limited release set.

You should still be able to hand-pick bricks to order from Lego, though.

I’d take the Einstein and “Man with No Name” minifigs in a heartbeat. I’m most excited at the prospect of a Mythology line, though. Seeing as we’ve gotten great mythological beasts like the Minotaur and Medusa in the Collectible line, I’ve been hoping to get some recognizable heroes like Hercules or Perseus to fight them. Also, I watched Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonauts a few months back and thought the entire time what an awesome set the Argo would make (and what a great way to load up a set with recognizable characters, too).

Yeah! That would be awesome! 🙂

Bill, yeah, I’m also really hopeful that a LEGO Mythology line will come out! It would be fantastic! 😀

Wolfy August 1, 2013 at 7:12 AM

I really like the giant figures! 🙂 Lego needs to make them! And small guys. 😀 😛

I would really like to see those bigifigs made and released and the idea of a mythology theme is a really good one!

In addition I would like to see the Fantasy theme return but that is aside from the topic.

As far as the minifigs, I would like the Hobbit-like minifig and the Hobgoblin with the meat cleaver.

Yeah, would love to see the Fantasy theme return! It was my favorite LEGO theme! Bigifigs! I will have to steal that name from you! 🙄

Jacob August 3, 2013 at 12:13 AM

I can’t believe I didn’t know of this earlier. This looks great, though I am worried that some figures I don’t think they will make, as they are too similar to ones they already made (the “wood elf” looks great, but may be too similar to the [IMO poorly executed ] fairy). I would hope that LEGO would go back to making a fantasy Castle line (or better yet, make those proposed Fairy Tale and Mythology lines) so the great looking “ultra figures” and centaur body would actually be produced. I don’t know if the Angel or demon figures will get made, as they are easy to place in the religious symbol group (though LEGO has done something like this before so maybe they would be fine with it)

Jabob, I’m also hoping for an angel and a demon. I’m not sure what LEGO’s stance is on them, as they have already done zombies, vampires and the like. If they are done right I think they could pass. 😈

And I would love to get those bigfigs! We only got them in the licensed themes, and that one troll in Fantasy Era, which is one of my favorite LEGO figures. I have both the green and the tan one. 🙂

I would love a LEGO Mythology line.
