Minifigures, commonly referred to as a “minifig”, or simply just “fig”, are small plastic figures just over 1 1/2 inches (4 cm), or four bricks tall. The minifigure was designed by LEGO model builder Jens Nygaard Knudsen, along with other early minifigure designs.
LEGO has officially revealed the largest set from The LEGO Movie 2, the massive 70840 Welcome to Apocalypseburg! Clocking in at 3,178 pieces and twelve minifigures, the set features the post-invasion home of the main characters located in a broken down Statue of Liberty (à la Planet of the Apes). Jan 4, 2019
Microfigures are a smaller type of minifigure used mainly in the LEGO Games theme. Being only two bricks tall and 1×1 at the base, they allow for game boards to be smaller than otherwise. They are used in almost every LEGO game.
Legos are made of a plastic called ABS. ABS cost $1. 89 per pound = $4. 20 per kilogram. A standard 2×2 lego brick weighs about 1. 1 gram, and so effectively costs 0. 00462 dollars to produce = 0. 46 cents. This is just the cost of materials though, factoring in labor/transportation ups the cost a lot. Dec 6, 2016
