The wooden Lego minifigure will be a great gift for a true fan of the legendary designer.
Toy manufacturer Lego, together with the creative agency Room Copenhagen A/S, presented a unique limited set. Includes the company's iconic 5:1 scale minifigure crafted from oak.
However, it should be noted that the figurine is not completely wooden. Her limbs are still plastic. So it is more reliable and it becomes possible to put various objects into the hands of the figures (including those created from Lego parts), personalizing it. The wooden man has no color and no lacquer - specifically to give customers the opportunity to be creative and paint it at their discretion.
This unusual set was created as a tribute to the very first Lego toys, which were originally made of wood. Plastic was first used only after the Second World War. The very first Lego minifigures appeared in 1975, from the very first days they were made of plastic. They had the dimensions and proportions of modern models, but their hands were motionless and their faces were missing. The final version with movable arms appeared in 1978. Subsequently, the company even patented this design. Minifigures are the most difficult Lego pieces to make. For this reason, their cost is always higher, especially when it comes to limited editions.
The wooden minifigure is already available as a set number 853967. It will be available for a few days in a specially created pop-up store in London. Starting November 8th, the figurine will be available in other countries.
The figure comes with a 28-page booklet with illustrated detailed history of Lego minifigures.
