The long-rumoured LEGO 71033 The Muppets Collectible Minifigures have been officially revealed today, bringing 12 classic Jim Henson creations to the theme. Each minifigure includes character-specific accessories in a blind bag and will retail for around £3.49 / $4.99 / €3.99 each.
Now that the full range has been announced, we’re hoping the latest LEGO Collectible Minifigures will sell well enough to justify a second series of The Muppets. If it does, here are five more characters that we want to get our hands on:
5. Lew Zealand
One of the more obscure characters in The Muppets, Lew Zealand is usually seen promoting his Boomerang Fish act. This involves throwing a fish away… and waiting for it to return.
4. Floyd Pepper
Hippie bass player of The Muppets band, The Electric Mayhem, Floyd is a totally laid-back musician. He’s also one of three characters we need to complete the full line-up of the group.
3. Dr. Teeth
This green-skinned character is the lead singer and keyboardist of The Electric Mayhem. His famous gold tooth was supposedly fashioned by melting down his own gold records.
Shades-wearing Zoot rarely communicates, preferring to let his saxophone speak for him. He usually played the final off-key note at the end of The Muppet Show’s credits.
Although glimpsed on Waldorf’s computer screen in 71033 The Muppets Collectible Minifigures, stage manager and gofer Scooter is a noticably absent from the first series. This would make the character a must-have for any potential future releases of The Muppets in the Collectible Minifigures theme.
