LEGO’s Disney Minifigure Collection Will Hit Stores in May
By Rudie Obias
Since the company launched minifigures in 2010, LEGO has released 17 series, featuring both generic characters like Circus Clown, Artist, and Chicken Suit Guy and some pretty famous ones—namely, two Simpsons-themed series. Now, LEGO is officially adding some of your favorite Disney characters to its minifig collection.
“For more than 16 years, fans have been recreating their most beloved Disney stories through LEGO play,” Jill Wilfert, The LEGO Group’s vice president of licensing and entertainment, said in a press release. “This year, we’re excited to give them a diverse collection of Disney characters from classic storylines, to never-before-seen LEGO likenesses of Disney icons in order to further the creative play possibilities for Disney and LEGO fans alike.”
The collection includes classic Disney characters such as Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck, The Little Mermaid’s Ariel, and Aladdin and Genie, plus Pixar favorites like Buzz Lightyear and Mr. Incredible.
The LEGO Disney Minifigure collection will be available in stores and online on May 1; minifigures will retail for $3.99 apiece.
