LEGO Minifigures: Character Encyclopedia

I have noticed whilst doing my Christmas shopping, yes it is that time of the year again, DK Publishing (Dorling Kindersley) will be publishing a LEGO Minifigure character encyclopedia. It seems that the content will be a page by page review and biography of each of the minifigures from the popular minifigure series packets from series 1 through to series 10. The series 10 minifgures are due to be released early in 2013.

According to Amazon Uk, it is due for release on the 15 April 2013, and can be pre ordered now via their site. ISBN-13: 978-1465401724

It will be a hardcover book containing 208 pages filled with facts and info about each minifigure from each of the series.  It also includes an exclusive minifgure! The RRP is £11.86 (GBP) but is on pre order currently for £10.76 (GBP). Not a huge discount, but as they say if the price comes down between now and it’s release, then you’ll pay the lower price!

For those in the US on Amazon again it is available for pre order with the RRP being $18.99 (USD) but currently on offer at $14.67 (USD)

  1. I’m sure my kids will want this.

    I guess with this book coming out in April. series 9 and 10 are going to come out pretty soon after each other. Very exciting!

      I guess so. I reckon series 9 will be shortly after xmas,sometime in Jan, and then Series 10 to follow around and about the same time as the release of the book. Series 7 was released about May time last yr, so it might be a slightly earlier release to help coincide.
      There was an image of one of the new minifigs in the latest LEGO club magazine the kids get.

      • Minifig Fun says:

        Do you think they will stop at Series 10 since the book only covers 10 series?

      • legogirl says:

        hard to say, but it is a possibility. However 10 is a nice round number so makes some sense to do a book for series 1-10 even if they did continue with them as a product. THey have been popular, but I do wonder how long the popularity of them would continue, and how long they can come up with different and new ideas each time, especially when they’ve been producing at least 3 sets a yr
