LEGO teases 71033 The Muppets Collectible Minifigures

It’s time to play the music, as the LEGO Group has finally teased the long-rumoured Collectible Minifigures series based on The Muppets.

Word of a new blind-bagged series inspired by the iconic cast of puppets originally surfaced all the way back in September 2021, following a tease by LEGO Group Vice President of Design Matthew Ashton. A potential list of minifigures then emerged the following month, suggesting a who’s-who of the series’ most memorable characters.

A tease through the LEGO Group’s social media accounts has now confirmed the existence of 71033 The Muppets, along with its first character in Kermit the Frog. The minifigure follows the design template set by last year’s 71030 Looney Tunes, combining a printed torso and legs with a custom moulded head.

If initial rumours around this series are true, the full cast of characters will include:

Kermit the Frog
Miss Piggy
Fozzie Bear
Animal
Swedish Chef
Gonzo
Beaker
Waldorf
Statler
Janice
Rowlf the Dog
Dr. Bunsen Honeydew

Based on last year’s release calendar – and the timing of this tease – expect to see 71033 The Muppets on shelves on May 1. A full unveiling of the entire series will likely drop any day now.

2022’s first batch of Collectible Minifigures, 71032 Series 22, are available now. They’re due to retire this month, however, and will be especially hard to find once the next series arrives, so make sure to pick up any you’re missing as soon as possible.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.

    I’m so excited after reading your info about the muppets minifigure collection. I’ve loved the muppets since I first watched the muppet show as a child. Now I’m aged 47 and still Lego is my No.1 pastime / happy place!! ???
