Oh… very nice but that's not what I call minifigs.


Miniature Figurines, or minifigs for short, was the dominate manufacturer of wargames figures in my circles in the 1970's.

Love the hair on the officer figure. Great stuff!

Today the little figures from Lego are called minifigs


This makes it hard to find the old miniature figurines when searching for mini figs.

Gahh, the Lego peril spreads!

I, too, only thought of the REAL MiniFigs when I saw this topic. (They were the first company I bought tons of figures from, and I still have massive numbers today of their ancients, fantasy, and 18th century ranges.)

I made these. Great stuff or Lego peril, as you will. ;-)

Yes, I do remember the true Minifigs. Still have a few packed away somewhere. If I'd been left to my own devices to post this, I wouldn't have used the Minifig topic which many at TMP associate with classic lead wargaming figures.

And probably the purists in the Lego community (who think it heresy to cut a Lego part) don't care of the kind of mods I've done here. Which concerns me not at all as there's no personal appeal to just collecting stock figurines.

Lego makes a cool Frederick the Great. Saw them in Berlin last fall

I thought these were the new plastic 28mm SYW's for a moment!
