LEGO Is Releasing A Limited Edition Retro Wooden Figure
Any toy enthusiast would love to add the new LEGO wooden figure to his or her collection. This limited-edition figurine is part of the LEGO Originals line. This series draws inspiration from the 1978 classic LEGO minifigure handcrafted in wood by company founder Ole Kirk Christiansen. LEGO has collaborated with brand extension specialist Room Copenhagen for the retro version of its original figures.
“LEGO® Originals offer a new way to build, show and tell your story.”
Danish toy company LEGO has released limited-edition minifigures as part of its Originals line.
The new LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure is a 5:1 upscaled version of the classic design. It stands at over seven inches tall and measures four inches wide and three inches deep. It comes with an FSC-certified oak body and two yellow trademark LEGO plastic hands.
As such, it’s the first-ever toy to include both wooden and plastic parts since the 1130 Bedford firetruck released in 1959. In addition, it features a black laser-cut LEGO branding on the stud of its head.
Unlike classic minifigures, it comes with a wooden body and two trademark plastic hands.
Normally, toy collectors use LEGO bricks to build structures and other replicas. But this wooden figurine inspires a different level of creativity. One can customize the figure given its wooden body. That said, you can actually paint it and add some decorative touches to it. Indeed, it’s a collectible that will appeal to toy and art enthusiasts alike.
Given its wooden body, the figurine is perfect for customization.
“Owners can unleash their creativity to dress up, paint or do whatever they want to customize the minifigure in unique ways and then show off their creations via social media using #LEGOOriginals.”
Art and toy enthusiasts would surely love to add the LEGO wooden figure to their collection.
