It’s party time! The humble minifigure has been around for 40 years and Brick Fanatics is celebrating by presenting each character from Series 18 in a bespoke vignette
For 40 years, LEGO sets have been brought to life by the little characters known as minifigures. To celebrate that anniversary, the LEGO Group has released a special series of minifigures who are ready to party. [geot exclude_country=”United States”]Series 18[/geot][geot country=”United States”]Series 18[/geot] has more of the popular fancy dress characters than any wave before it, with the elusive classic Police Officer thrown in as a chase minifigure.
The latest Brick Fanatics build series presents a new vignette each day, one for each of the 17 new minifigures.
I am a big fan of this minifigure. Not only does she come with a lovely little mouse but her facial expression is absolutely superb. I had a few ideas for this vignette but my final build was actually based on a recent personal event that wasn’t too dissimilar to the scene depicted here. Although when I saw the mouse scurry across my kitchen floor I didn’t leap onto the nearest chair…
I tried to include enough accessories and detail in the background to give the impression of an everyday kitchen, there’s even a 2×1 trans-blue tile in the sink, which just adds that final bit a detail. The only thing missing is a black half circle 1×1 tile for the mouse’s hole – sadly the LEGO Group don’t make that part in that colour yet so I had to make do with a regular 1×1 tile instead.
