There is an exciting new book coming by DK Publishing in May called the LEGO Minifigures Character Encyclopedia. The book will contain beautiful detailed pictures as well as stats on all the Collectible Minifigure Characters from Series 1-10. This will be very helpful to keep track of which minifigures you have from each series and which ones are still missing. 🙂
Here is the official description of this LEGO book: From the Musketeer to the Minotaur, the LEGO Minifigures world features a diverse cast of minifigures inspired by history, movies, myth, sports, and everyday life. With the LEGO Minifigures: Character Encyclopedia, readers will get to know all of the fun and fantastic minifigures from Series 1 through 10.
LEGO Minifigures collectors and fans alike will love this guide showcasing each and every LEGO Minifigures character available, allowing them to see exactly which minifigures they still need to complete their collections. LEGO Minifigures are only bought in blind packs; this book will be a definitive list of every LEGO Minifigures character available!
DK publishing is well known for there very high quality LEGO books and the LEGO Minifigures Character Encyclopedia is no exception. Each page includes a beautiful picture of a Collectible Minifigure character with lots of stats and interesting details.
I particularly like the “Did You Know?” section on each page that shares something about the history of the particular minifigure, or interesting facts about the design process or accessories included. I believe LEGO history fans will love this! (Click images for larger view.)
There are also little stories for each of the characters about their personalities and how they fit into the LEGO world. Also there are directions to pages in the book to similar characters under the “See Also” section.
The book will include a very special minifigure that you can add to your Collectible Minifigure collection: an awesomely detailed Toy Soldier with a key at his back and printing on both the arms and the legs. 😛
The LEGO Minifigures Character Encyclopedia is 208 pages, will be released on May 1st for the price of $19.99, and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon for $13.37. That’s a 30% saving! BUY HERE
