Today sees the release of something a little different, with LEGO Originals 853967 Wooden Minifigure available now at LEGO.com. after an early release at the LEGO Originals Pop-up Gallery. The statue is a wooden replica of the iconic LEGO figure upscaled at 5:1 ratio. It is only available to VIPs right now, who should login to be able to order the gift boxed item.
As well as the wooden minifigure itself, a selection of bricks are included to build an accessory for the model. It is intended for the owner to customise the wooden character with paint or other materials.
There is some plastic used in the product – the yellow hands are made from plastic, making this the first time the two materials have been combines since the 1130 Bedford fire truck 60 years ago in 1959.
“It has been a privilege for us to expand our collaboration with The LEGO Group and contribute to the world premiere of a new series of design classics,” says Jacob Eberhard, CEO of Room Copenhagen.
