Lego’s Disney minifigs bring Mickey, the Incredibles, Alladin and Stitch among othersby Gareth Mankoo
You Lego universe just got a generous dose of fantasy infused in it. Following last year’s Disney Princess Range, the company has introduced new mini-figures in a joint effort with Disney to enthrall fans of both franchisees. The company’s Elsa Ice Castle was a huge hit and so, all things Disney seemed to be a great formula for Lego. The set of new characters sees the arrival of 18 popular characters including Aladdin, Alice, Ariel, Buzz Lightyear, Captain Hook, Cheshire Chat, Daisy Duck, Donald Duck, Genie, Maleficent, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Mr. Incredible, Peter Pan, Stitch, Syndrome, Toy Story Alien and Ursula.
In the history of Lego, this is only the third time Disney has introduced standalone mini-figures. The previous instance saw all of Springfield out there with special details given to the otherwise geometric figures. The same seems to be replicated in this set, inspired by the Disney universe. Lego prefers keeping the suspense high and selling their mini-figures in blind bags keeping the identity of the figures a mystery until they are purchased and opened.
