Lego Minifgures Series 1


I have obtained quite few Lego Minifigures to date and would like to share some of my favourite characters.  We started our collection at Series 4 when I bought Graeme his first character the Footballer to cheer him up whilst studying for exams at University.  Ever since we have been hooked and my latest edition is the complete Series 1 minifigures.  These were quite hard to get hold of as they were first published in 2010 and are now no longer made.  I had to search for quite a while and eventually found the set on Ebay for not much more than the original cost; that's my story and I'm sticking to it!!

Here are our favourite characters and their bio's from the lego minifgure website.  I love how the designers have created complete back stories for their characters it makes each one very unique.
My favourite character from this series is the Cheerleader, she has the best pom poms:
“Gimmie an L! Gimmie an E! Gimmie a G! Gimmie an O! Yaaay!”

The Cheerleader is perpetually filled to bursting with energy, excitement and enthusiasm. She prefers cartwheels and handsprings to plain old ordinary walking, and she waves her pom-poms around wildly whenever she talks, which is pretty much all of the time.

The Cheerleader loves to cheer people on, no matter what they’re doing. Whether they’re changing a light bulb, building a wall or just crossing the street, she’s always there with a peppy cheerleading routine to encourage them to do their best and never give up. It can actually get kind of annoying sometimes, but her perpetual good mood and sunny smile are so contagious that it’s hard to really mind.


Graeme's is the Ninja:
“Like a shadow in the night, I – oops!”

Stealthy. Sneaky. A cunning master of martial arts. None of these things describes the Ninja, although he sure wishes they did. He tries his best to dramatically blend into the shadows or hide in plain sight like all the other ninjas can, but no matter what he does, he always seems to mess things up. The truth is that he’s just plain clumsy, and no matter how gracefully he may start a back-flip, creep along the rafters or launch himself into an epic sword battle, he always manages to trip over his own feet, fall off the ceiling, or bonk himself on the head with his ancient and mystical blade. Also, he’s afraid of the dark.

No one is quite sure how the Ninja ever managed to graduate from ninja school. But no matter how bad he may be at his chosen profession, he always keeps trying and never gives up, convinced after each blunder that the next time, he will prove himself a true ninja warrior for the ages.
