LEGO fans rejoice! The company is launching a limited edition original wooden “minifigure” that has been upscaled to 5:1, and designed in partnership with Room Copenhagen. Standing seven-inches-tall, it features an oak body, plastic hands and a branded LEGO logo on top of its head. If you like customizing things, there are plenty of options, but keeping it as is also makes for a great conversation piece. Read more for a video and additional information.
This minifigure comes packaged in a premium gift box with a 28-page booklet featuring the history of the minifigure and the story behind the development of this wooden model. You also get inspiring examples of how LEGO designers personalized their models, as well as inspiration for accessories fans can build using the included LEGO bricks. It’s available now, priced at $120 USD, exclusively from a pop-up store in Covent Garden, London, but set for a global release on November 8th.
It has been a privilege for us to expand our collaboration with The LEGO Group and contribute to the world premiere of a new series of design classics. Going back to the roots of the company and helping to bring back some of the original LEGO toys in new creative ways is an exciting journey to be part of,” said Jacob Eberhard, CEO of Room Copenhagen.
