Two black dots and a big smile: we all know it. The dolls are in thousands of sets, games and other merchandise. In forty years, the Minifigures have become cultural icons. How did it come to that?
The figures first appeared in 1974, when they consisted of a number of building blocks, with movable arms. The legs could not be bent in a different position.
In 1975 they were succeeded by solid torsos, but without movable arms or legs. Only in 1977, the Minifigure came to life as we know it today. Movable limbs, and a black smile.
Since then, there are more than 8000 different figures and more than 650 unique faces!
In the beginning they were still simple, such as a doctor, police officer or a knight, but today they are available in various themes such as Harry Potter® or Star Wars®
Wiilebrick has a very diverse number of minifigures in stock!
