Welcome back, Rebelscum
! Do you have a complete set of vintage Kenner Star Wars
figures? Have you ever tried to get a matching set of LEGO minifigs? They don't exactly pair up one-for-one do they?
The gents over at BrickNerd.com
have taken the task of tracking down all the Star Wars
minifigures and cataloguing them by release date and where they fall in the Star Wars
Since 1999, an average of 22 Original Trilogy minifigures have been released each year, and the OT is the only part of the Star Wars franchise that has received at least one new figure every year, as you can see in the mountainous graph below.
By their findings, they determined 18 vintage figures don't have a matching minifig, which was surprising to me. Some low-hanging fruit is just waiting out there.
Of all the figures on the list, Nien Numb is the most famous omission. The colloquial named Pruneface (Orrimaarko), Yak Face (Saelt-Marae) and Squid Head (Tessek) have quite pronounced features, and would also make distinctive minifigures.
We don't want to give away everything in their article, but suffice to say it's exhaustive and laid out very well. Head over to BrickNerd.com to see the full write-up
. We think it's a great read and very much worth your time if you're looking for a deep dive on LEGO minifigures from a galaxy far, far away.
If there was only one as-yet unproduced Star Wars
minifig you could add to your collection, what would it be and why? Sound off in the forums!
