I was never content with the complacent yellow faces Lego men had when I was a kid. I still remember the first time I saw the Pirates theme in the 90s. These Lego men, although still smiling, now had beards, stubble, and sideburns – not to mention an occasional hook or peg leg. It was a paradigm shift that renewed my interest in Legos. Minifigures have come a long way since their very humble beginnings in the 70s. This year, they’re finally available as singles and Lego has rehooked me yet again.
I’m really enjoying the Transformers Prime figures. It’s a pretty well designed line with some interesting and unique takes on the characters. But what I like most is the Arms Micron minifigures that Takara is producing for their AM line of figures.
