LEGO Collectable Minifigure Series 8 is here!

There’s always a fair bit of excitement, pushing and shoving and general childlike glee whenever a new, shiny LEGO delivery turns up at FireStar.. Well, the arrival of the Collectable Series 8 Minifigures was no exception! The latest offerings from LEGO draw on movies, sport, history and, of course, everyday life. It’s a really great series and we’ve had lots of fun rummaging through them!

As usual we don’t think our serious LEGO fan’s will want to simply take a chance on which ones they get, so simply pick the ones you want, no finger crossing or luck needed! We’ve also been busy splitting them as individual parts for you, so if you have your eye on a snazzy new accessory or body part you can snap it up without having to buy the whole minifigure!

So here’s the full line up plus a little bit of background info about each little guy/girl/monster...

Actor, Pirate Captain, Conquistador, Evil Robot, Alien Villainess, Diver, Vampire Bat, Fairy, Football Player, Businessman, Downhill Skier, Red Cheerleader, Santa, Lederhosen Guy, DJ and Cowgirl.

LEGO Actor

LEGO Actor

The LEGO Actor was born to perform and has dedicated his life to perfecting his thespian skills. He always gets the biggest round of applause at the end of a show and loves the attention! He’s worked his way to bigger and better parts, starting off at LEGO Studios in the early days. He is regularly offered big roles in TV shows and Hollywood films, but always turns them down, saying his true love is on the stage. 

LEGO Pirate Captain

LEGO Pirate Captain

LEGO Pirate Captain really looks the part, not only does he have a skull and crossbones hat, eye patch and peg-leg, he even has a hook for a hand! But for some reason that’s just not enough to help him fulfil his pirate dreams, as he really struggles with the day to day life on the open sea. He’s tried all kinds of sea sickness remedies but nothing works, he only has to step onto a ship and it’s bound to sink, and he can’t even come up with a menacing name for himself!

LEGO Conquistador

LEGO Conquistador

As you may have noticed from his gleaming golden armour, LEGO Conquistador really likes gold. He likes the colour of it, the weight, even the smell! He’s not all that bothered about its value; he just thinks it would be really cool if everything he owned was made of gold!

LEGO Evil Robot

LEGO Evil Robot

LEGO Evil Robot is determined to foil the plans of his enemy, LEGO Robot. He’s decided that the best way of doing this is to do the opposite of everything Robot does, smashing LEGO buildings rather than building them, being really mean rather than helpful and friendly, walking backwards rather than forwards... We’re not sure he’s thought his plan through fully as it seems to cause more problems for Evil Robot!

LEGO Alien Villainess

LEGO Alien Villainess

No one’s quite sure why, but the LEGO Alien Villainess is consumed by a need to conquer the entire universe! Maybe it’s due to her exposed, pulsating brain, who knows.. Understandably, her method of sending fleets of evil followers out to take over random planets isn’t appreciated by many minifigures, but not to worry, Intergalactic Girl is on the case to restore justice!.

LEGO Diver

LEGO Diver

LEGO Diver loves to discover new places and his absolute favourite place to explore is under the sea! With his weighted diving suit on, he can happily wander the sea bed for hours finding new and exciting things to tell his friends about. He’s been pretty lucky and hasn’t had to use his spear gun yet, the man eating sharks just seem to leave him alone!

LEGO Vampire Bat

LEGO Vampire Bat

All this talk of ‘eclipsing the sun forever’, makes the LEGO Vampire Bat pretty uncomfortable. Especially as it’s his job as head Hench-Bat to make sure his master’s evil plan runs smoothly. Don’t tell anyone, but LEGO Vampire Bat doesn’t really mind the sun, in fact he’s quite partial to a spot of sunbathing..

LEGO Fairy

LEGO Fairy

Flitting from flower to flower with a flutter of her wings, LEGO Fairy is proud of her magical abilities and spends her days trying to help out as many people as she can.

LEGO Football Player

LEGO Football Player

LEGO Football Player lives and breathes Football; in fact he is sometimes a bit over the top with his determination to be prepared for anything. His teammates try not to snigger when they see him jogging around the pitch in snow shoes or in a diving suit, because you ‘never know’, one day there may be a need to play in a blizzard, or, urm, underwater..

LEGO Businessman

LEGO Businessman

With his unassuming smart suit and favourite bowler hat on, the LEGO Businessman blends right in on his morning commute. And why shouldn’t he? Those stories you heard about it all being a cover for his top secret international spy business, with futuristic gadgets hidden under his hat and glasses that give him night vision...are just stories of course! 

LEGO Downhill Skier

LEGO Downhill Skier

LEGO Downhill Skier is always happiest hurtling down a mountain on her favourite pink skis. She’s always optimistic and believes that life is just like a snowy mountain; keep calm, focused and know where you’re heading and everything will turn out alright!

LEGO Red Cheerleader

LEGO Red Cheerleader

To become a top Cheerleader like the LEGO Red Cheerleader, a certain amount of drive, dedication and competitiveness are required. LEGO Red Cheerleader may be taking things a little further than most though, with her spectacular firework displays, parades and jet displays distracting from the cheers slightly!

LEGO Santa

LEGO Santa

Nobody knows quite how he fits all of his LEGO Bricks and goodies in that little bag he carries, or how he gets around so quickly at Christmas time, but minifigures sure are excited about a visit from LEGO Santa. Bringing joy and LEGO to minifigs everywhere, LEGO Santa is a very special Minifigure.

LEGO Lederhosen Guy

LEGO Lederhosen Guy

You don’t get a name like LEGO Lederhosen Guy for just a passing phase of Lederhosen wearing you know. Lederhosen Guy has dozens and dozens of the fine quality leather breeches and will never return to wearing boring old ‘normal’ clothes. He’s not sure what started it, but he just can’t get enough of Lederhosen!

LEGO DJ

LEGO DJ

To say that LEGO DJ loves music is a serious understatement. He is never without his trademark silver headphones and is always clutching his latest fave records. Ask him for a song request and he’s guaranteed to have it, plus he can tell you everything there is to know about the song too!

LEGO Cowgirl

LEGO Cowgirl

With unrivalled cow lassoing skills and the ability to out gallop any cowboy who challenges her to a horse riding race, the LEGO Cowgirl is Wild West through and through.
