Series 13 of the LEGO minifigure series hit the shops on January 1st (or earlier if you were lucky!)
The whole series is pretty great, and I don’t think I would have minded getting double of any of these! They are all detailed and have great character to them!
If you are out looking for these guys, then take a look at my minifigure finding guide below. I point out some of the features of each model and the best items to feel for!
The bump codes/dot codes are at the bottom of the post for those who want them, although they were fairly hard to see in stores so they may not be too helpful.
Happy minifigure finding!
1. Classic King
The Classic King is here to take your Kingdom.
This figure is incredibly detailed, with a two part cloak, the top of which is printed with specks of black. He comes with a traditional broad sword in gold which helps to distinguish him from other figures. His hair piece has a golden crown attached. He also has a beard piece (these feel squidgy in the packet).
This king will make a great addition to any Castle/Medieval sets. Give him some troops and he can win the day!
Howdy partner – you seen this fella?
The Sheriff is in town to locate your bad guys. This is another detailed figure, with a printed hat, shirt and trousers, giving him some great character.
He comes with the only 2×2 tile of the series, which helps distinguish him. Other items to look out for are his pistol, hat and the tiny soft moustache.
3. Unicorn Girl
One of my favourites of the set is Unicorn Girl. Another great figure, she comes with a little printing on the front. Key things to feel out for is the horn (separate in the packet), the unicorn hat, and the separate tail piece (it hooks over the legs.)
4. Snake Charmer
This double act is another nice addition to the minifigure world. I do like the look of surprise on this guys face. You should be able to feel the pipe out quite easily, as well as the turban and the snake.
This tricky little goblin is full of mischief! I’m sure he will be well looked for as an army builder character for MOCs. He comes with a bag of loot (should be easy-ish to find) and damaged sword. He comes with elf ears attached to his patched up hat, as well as patched up regular clothes.
LEGO have made the common mistake of not printing the trousers on the back of the legs though so he looks a bit odd from behind!
This is an awesome figure, and I am so glad they included it – especially after the Research Institute kit from earlier in the year. I foresee her digging for bones soon!
She has a round glasses printed on her face, which I don’t think I’ve seen before. Her hair piece is under a pith helmet. Her hair is a lovely red colour. Her accessories will help you find her – a small bone and a round 1×1 fossil!
7. Alien Trooper
This Alien Trooper from the planet Toflacrev Abyss is slimy green, with an old school blaster gun. The round gun piece and the slightly soft head should help you find him. Great for your Galaxy Troopers to go up against!
8. Egyptian Warrior
Ready to take over the world, this warrior is set for battle with a Khopesh (sickle) sword and shield. The headpiece is also very findable. It’s another great figure from this series and the printing is again superb, except for the lack of rear coverings!
Need a shelf put up? He’s your guy.
This is a fairly simple figure, with some nice front printed detail. He would look great in any partially built houses I would think! The 1×4 plank of wood is a great way to find him. You could also try feeling out the saw or the hat piece.
10. Evil Wizard
Mwah ha ha. Ha ha. ha.
This evil wizard is pretty spooktackular with a double pieced cloak, evil eyes and a creepy long beard. He’s pretty easy to find as he comes with the only skirt piece from the series. The printing on both the figure and the cloak is awesome, and definitely lends itself to the word ‘evil’. You could also try to find him from the parts of the staff.
Make sure your good wizard is around to defend your LEGO ranks from this one!
En guard! Make sure you stick ’em with the pointy end!.
This is actually quite a simple figure, but very well done. Under his helmet he is a very determined chap! You can find him by feeling for the foil (sword) or the helmet.
I love this figure! Kick ass women fighter time! Dual wielding swords!
Once again the figure has some wonderful printing, both on the torso and the armer. You should be able to find her fairly easily with the two swords, the small hair bun, and the armer piece.
13. Disco Diva
Night fever, night fever… You know how to do it…
It’s disco time! Check out the psychedelic printing on this diva’s top! Totally 70s time! The permed hair is the easiest way to hunt out this figure, although the small microphone and the skates may help you too.
14. Hot Dog Guy
Hot dogs, hot dogs, get your hot dogs here!
The Hot Dog Guy is a fantastically weird addition to the minifigure series, but one that would look great on a LEGO street. He’s probably the easiest figure to find – his packet is bulky and has a long hot dog shaped piece inside! Underneath his suit he’s just a basic minifigure.
15. Lady Cyclops
The lady cyclops comes dressed with fabulous lipstick and a cute tank top! Ready to find Mr. Right!
You can find her by feeling out her club. You can also check for her head piece, but beware, it’s very similar to the unicorns! So confirm with the club.
This lady also comes with a special winky eye on the back of her head!
16. Galaxy Trooper
Are you ready to “join the Mobile Infantry and save the Galaxy[?]”
Our last figure is the Galaxy Trooper, ready to take on the alien troopers right here, right now.
Fully equipped with two guns and some heavy armer (find this and you’ve got him), this trooper is ready for action. There are some nice details on the body armer, as well as on the figure. Would have been super cool if it had been the space logo again though! This guy is two faced, and comes with a greyed out (face shield?) face too.
The bump codes / the dot codes
Please be aware that dot codes are unreliable and might differ from those below so you should always feel the packet to work out what is inside! I can’t stress this enough!
Dot codes may offer a quick comparison only and different countries seem to have different codes. Those below are from the UK.
This series of minifigures has codes that were much harder to see/badly printed. I am unsure how helpful these will be.
