Meet the Minifigures is the latest book from DK to focus on the Collectible Minifigures series, and just like 2013’s LEGO Minifigures: Character Encyclopedia and 2015’s I Love That Minifigure!, it’s set to include a brand new character to collect.
Where those books brought us a Toy Soldier and Zombie Skateboarder, Meet the Minifigures will include an exclusive Rock Star minifigure, with what appears to be new torso and head prints. While this isn’t a Collectible Minifigure in the strictest sense – it doesn’t come in a blind bag, for one – all three of DK’s exclusive characters are considered part of the collection by fans.
Compiled by veteran LEGO author Helen Murray, Meet the Minifigures will be released on June 14, 2022, but you can already pre-order it from Amazon. According to the book’s blurb, it’s full of ‘fun facts, jokes, play ideas and build inspiration’, covering minifigures including Race Car Guy, Party Clown and Pizza Costume Guy.
There’s no mention of the LEGO Group’s many recent licensed Collectible Minifigures, so like previous DK Books titles, you can probably expect Meet the Minifigures to focus exclusively on in-house launches, up to and including this year’s 71029 Series 21 – and possibly next year’s rumoured Series 22.
