With their iconic tiny yellow square heads and expressive features like scowling eyebrows, happy smiles, pirate eye patch and stubble, or clowns and hundreds of thousands more, the LEGO minifigure, often referred to as a minifig, is the small plastic articulated figurine made of special LEGO bricks and produced by Danish building toy manufacturer the LEGO Group since 1978. Usually found within LEGO sets they are also incredibly popular collectables sold separately. The little yellow figurine has never looked back and over 40 years exploded into a pop-culture phenomenon. Deceptively simple in design and yet endlessly adaptable, it is a true work of art. This landmark volume explores the making of an icon and its colourful history, milestone moments, evolving design, and lasting impact with compelling interviews and essays, lush photography and never-before-seen visuals from inside the LEGO archives and beyond. A beloved toy, a singular global icon, the minifigure is one of the most recognisable toys on the planet, synonymous with the joy of play and the power of imagination and endless expression. Packed with colour photos, 144 large pages, 23.5 x 28.5cm.
