In some sad news today coming out of Denmark, the original creator of the LEGO Minifigure, Jens Nygaard Knudsen, passed away a few days ago. Minifigures are some of the most popular items in LEGO sets and they have evolved throughout the 40+ years they have existed. His legacy will live on as LEGO produces many, many more minifigures in the future. Jens was 78.
