LEGO Minifigure Factory Debuts in Denmark

LEGO Minifigure Factory

Here’s something really cool that debuted at the Copenhagen LEGO Brand Store earlier today. LEGO fans love customizing their minifigures and LEGO has introduced the Minifigure Factory which allows fans to customize the design of a minifigure torso and print them directly onsite. The cost is 30DKK which is about $5 and the invention is by designer Jens Hjorth who has shared the project on Facebook. It has taken 18 months for the LEGO Minifigure Factory to come to fruition and it is currently doing a test run for two days in Denmark.

From the looks of it, the Minifigure Factory has some premade designs to choose from for the front and back of the torsos. It doesn’t look like you have the option to upload your own design. It also looks like the machine can print a number of minifigures at the same time but it also means that you’ll probably have to wait until the machine fills up before it runs so it can be more efficient.

There’s no word yet on whether or not it will launch globally but hopefully the test run is successful so we can get them in every LEGO store. If you’ve been following my posts, you would know that the LEGO Mosaic Maker has finally made it to the United States so it’ll be quite a while before we see the Minifigure Factory over here if LEGO does decide to launch it worldwide.

LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358) Promotion Live on [email protected]

LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358)

The LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358) promotion is now live on LEGO [email protected]. From now until April 15, you can get it for free with purchase of $75 or more, while supplies last. Like with the 40 Years of the Brick promotion, I have a feeling that this promo will sell out fairly quickly.

The set comes with a LEGO designer minifigure along with some microfigures of the Classic Policeman, Pirate, Spaceman, P.I.X.A.L., and a Nurse. There’s also some parts for the design table and it uses the box itself as a layout.

To help you reach the $75 threshold, LEGO has released some new products including Go Brick Me (41597), the Avengers: Infinity War LEGO BrickHeadz, and the Series 18 Collectible Minifigures (71021).

LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358)

The official images of the LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358) are now available on LEGO’s servers in preparation of them being available starting on April 1. The promotional set is to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the LEGO minifigure and you can get it for free with a purchase of $75 or more at LEGO Brand Stores or [email protected] from April 1-15, while supplies last.

We can now clearly see the microfigures that will be included with the set which are a policeman, a pirate, a classic spaceman, P.I.X.A.L. from Ninjago, and a nurse. There’s also a regular minifigure of a LEGO designer as well.

LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358) Coming in April

LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358)

LEGO will celebrating the 40th anniversary of the LEGO minifigure in April and there are things happening next month to commemorate the event. One of the things is the release of the Series 18 LEGO Collectible Minifigures which will have a special Classic Police Officer to find. Another thing they are doing is releasing an exclusive promotional LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358). According to the April 2018 LEGO Store Calendar, you can get for free with a purchase of $75 or more from April 1-15, while supplies last.

The set itself looks like it will be using the cardboard box it comes in as part of the layout. The build will include a factory with some microfigures such as a classic spaceman, a policeman, and what looks to be P.I.X.A.L. from Ninjago as well as a red wagon on the side. The minifigure also looks interesting as it seems to have a nice looking yellow shirt. One of the bummers of this set is that it does use part of the box as the setting and not using LEGO bricks to create the walls. I think this is a misstep but we’ll have to get a clearer look when the official images come out in a few weeks to make a judgement on it.

What do you think of the set and will you be picking it up next month?
