LEGO Collectible Minifigs Series 12 details

(Written by HP)

We have briefly mentioned Series 12 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigs in The LEGO Movie – Second Full Trailer! post a few days ago (click on link to see the trailer), and today I would like to discuss them in a bit more detail. As you probably know already, Series 12 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures are not just random characters like in previous series, but tied to The LEGO Movie that will be released next year. So let’s take a look! We will start from the top row from left to right, then the bottom row from left to right to go through all the minifigures. 🙂

The LEGO Movie Minifigures

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Calamity Drone: This female looking robot looks like is from the Wild West with a mild resemblance to Red Harrington from the LEGO Lone Ranger theme. The hairpiece is new, and looks nice.

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Gail the Construction Worker: She appears to be working at the same construction company as Emmet. Notice the hardhat/hair combination, which is new.

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Abraham Lincoln: Don’t tell me you don’t have plans on getting this minifigure! This is one of the most exciting minifigs in the series LEGO fans can’t wait to use in their own creations. The tall hat and the beard are one piece.

LEGO Collectible Minifigs Series 12 Larry the Barista: This is the guy working at the Coffee Shop where Emmet buys his overpriced coffee (see trailer for details). The coffee cup is a new piece, so is Larry’s hair.

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Panda Guy: My favorite minifigure from this series, giving us another awesome costume. Plus it comes with a re-colored teddy-bear that looks like a baby panda – how cute!

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Velma Staplebot: Not really sure who she supposed to be, besides being another annoying and angry looking robot. The hairpiece is a new mould.

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 William Shakespeare: Didn’t we get a guy similar to this one not that long ago? (I’m referring to the Hamlet minifig from Series 8). At least now we will have an official Shakespeare minifig and not just a stereotype. The balding headpiece is new.

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Taco Tuesday Guy: It’s Taco Tuesday! Although this minifig is mostly a re-release of the Mariachi from Series 2, he is surely welcome in my collection!

The LEGO Movie Minifigures

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 “Where are my Pants?” Guy: I guess his name tells it all. He is surely going to be a weird character, but his Aloha shirt is quite nice. 🙄

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Wiley Fusebot: Looks like another crazed robot from the Wild West.

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 President Business: According to the trailer we mentioned above, he’s the president of the Octan company, and the World. He is the main badguy who has a soft spot for Taco Tuesdays. His hairpiece is boss!

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Wild West Wyldstyle: Here Wyldstyle is in a nice black dress with a fan, instead of her usual super-heroine, super-active attire.

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Hard Hat Emmet: Although he is dressed like a simple construction guy, Emmet is the star of The LEGO Movie! I’m really excited about the hardhat/hair combination.

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Good Cop/Bad Cop: I’m hoping he has a second face (Good Cop) just like in the movie.

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Mrs. Scratchen-Post: Notice the name? Very funny! Interesting that she comes right after the other cat-lady in Series 12, but she comes with a new cat-variant!

LEGO Minifigs Series 12 Marsha Queen of Mermaids: Marsha looks a lot like a mermaid Katy Perry. Blue hair, blue lipstick, purple tail, purple eye-shadow, a pink jewel and a rare white clam-piece – what is there not to like?

The LEGO Movie Sigfig Creator

So that’s it as far as Series 12 of the LEGO Collectible Minifig Series. They should be release early next year, along with The LEGO Movie sets in January, and The LEGO Movie in February. In the meantime LEGO also put up a SigFig Creator on The LEGO Movie website where you can create a minifigure of yourself using the many different configurations of facial features, hair-styles, headgear and accessories, clothing, etc. Once you are done you can insert your sigfig into different background from The LEGO Movie and download the images to your computer. Later, when The LEGO Movie video-game comes out you can use your sigfig in the game as well.

So what do you think? How do you like The LEGO Movie Minifigure Series? Do you have a favorite? Or are you planning to collect them all? And have you tried out the sigfig creator? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

It took me a while to realize Calamity Drone is based on Calamity Jane, a real-life female outlaw in the Wild West.

I have already decided that I’m going to use her hair for my sigfig. Love her too! 😀

Has anyone thought that 17 sets might be 16 CMF’s and 1 actual sets?

Reply

Fikko3107 November 6, 2013 at 5:17 AM

That is surely not the case. 17 is an early announcement, so it might not be accurate. At the end of the day though, the set list and spoiled pictures gives us 13 sets, plus the minifigures. Besides, LEGO always considers an entire series of minifigures to be a single “set”.

Reply

admin November 6, 2013 at 8:52 AM

The sets are already being revealed on the LEGO Movie website. There are at least 14 of them. 😉

LK2 November 6, 2013 at 2:13 PM

Any pics?

Reply

admin November 6, 2013 at 2:18 PM

You mean of The LEGO Movie sets? They are listed on LEGO’s website. Some of them are not yet fully revealed, but most of them are. Awesome/crazy sets! I will publish a poust about them next week, so we can discuss them here as well. 😉

LK2 November 7, 2013 at 5:11 AM

Sorry, I thought only one had been seen….

Jody November 6, 2013 at 8:28 AM

Alas this is not series 12.

Preliminary pictures of the box and bags show NO indication that this will be labeled as series 12.
Please correct.

Reply

admin November 6, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Jody, yes, that seems to be the case. Please note that with future sets, where there is so many rumors, speculations, and almost daily updates, it is not possible to be always fully up to date as information morphs and changes so often. We try to wait until there is enough information that something is not just a rumor before publishing a post, but at the same time we also go with the flow as new information becomes available – that new information can be added in the comment section – just like you did. 😉

At this point it is not known if Series 11 is the last random minifig series, or that will also continue. If LEGO does continue them, then the LEGO Movie minifigs are certainly not Series 12. However if LEGO is discontinuing the release of random minifigs per series and from now on all series are going to be tied with a movie or license, then they could be legitimately referred to as Series 12. What I have heard is that Series 13 is going to be tied with THe Simpsons. So we shall see as more information becomes available. 🙂

I like these figures. I want Shakespeare. Lincoln, Bad cop, well pretty much most of them. The sets look pretty cool. Some of the sets are wild looking.

Is it just me or does the “where is my pants” guy look just like Dareth from ninjago?! 😯 Must have the panda guy, Wyldstyle, and Emmett!!!

I agree totally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The brown belt Dereth? The hair of the “where is my pants” guy looks just like Dareth’s hair.

Ryan, please note that Series 12 is NOT like the series in the past. It is tied in with The LEGO Movie. All the characters are from the movie. They are not random like in previous series. 😉

Greg December 12, 2013 at 3:53 AM

The guys at the lego store say they are called series “M”

admin December 12, 2013 at 11:28 AM

Interesting! 🙂

Me December 30, 2013 at 12:28 PM

I <3 Emmet!!
And want to have taco guy, larry the barista and panda guy!
(and all the others as well, I assume that my three boys will love all of them, especially after the movie)

Yeah, I think The LEGO Movie sets and minifigs are going to be very popular. So far the response has been very enthusiastic and we haven’t even seen the movie yet! 😀

Jas March 6, 2014 at 10:03 AM

I know the Simpson minifigure are coming in May, but what characters are in them?

Reply

admin March 6, 2014 at 10:08 AM

Jas, at this point it is not known which characters will be included. At the recent Toy Fairs the box was shown of the series, but not the minifigures. We should know fairly soon though. 😉
