Fans of LEGO Minifigures will be scrabbling to get their hands on the latest motley crew, which is available in shops for the first time this summer. Series 5 is set to kick off a fresh playground craze with the arrival of some great new characters.Lego Minifigures Lizard Man

Beware of lizard man as looks can be deceiving...he wants to be a giant monster and stamp fearsome footprints all over the place. But as he’s simply a Minifigure in disguise he’s got a way to go. He wins full marks for his outfit though and causes quite a stir with his head to tail spikes. Enough about him though..we’ll leave him to practice his roar.

Lego Minifigures Royal GuardHe’s doing it for Queen and country and he’s got the ceremonial rifle and bearskin hat to prove it! You can tell from his expression that he’s committed from his super stance to his shiny boots. Rumour has it he’s mastered ignoring tourists so much that he doesn’t even notice they’re there any more…unless they are trouble makers of course.

Send in the clowns! You can’t fail to love this cheerful chappie but watch out for Small Clown’s cheeky custard pie or it may land Lego Minifigures Small Clownsquarely in your face. Amazing how he keeps his smile when he must spend so long washing his shirt and jacket to clean the custard off. And we’d like to take this opportunity to say that he hasn’t been anywhere near the Houses of Parliament with his pies.

Lego Minifigures Fitness InstructorFitness can be done on the move when you’ve got your very own boom box! She loves to keep herself and others in great shape and has a veritable mix of accompaniment whether yoga, pilates or a hardcore fitness work out.

Al Capone himself would flinch at this dastardly Gangster. ALEGO Minifigures Gangster true professional, this low down sneaky crook uses his fake violin case to aid scams and bank jobs. Don’t be fooled by his slick attire in the form of his pinstripe waistcoat.

This is merely a sneek peek at the full range – there are 16 in total to collect for a limited time only so don’t miss out! At just £1.99 each, the ‘mystery bag’ Minifigures are a pocket money treat. Each minifigure has its own special accessories, display plate and collector’s leaflet and combines easily with all classic LEGO bricks and parts.
