Hot dogs!

Posted by ,

LEGO sausages have been on the menu since 1999. They were first consumed by Scala dolls before being offered to minifigs in 2002.

Dining on sausages has been a messy business: the hot, fatty sticks of meat have had to be held in the minifigs' bare hands and scoffed down without accompaniment. But now, eating bangers has just become a lot easier, and tastier, thanks to the introduction of the hot dog roll!

No longer will our mini friends have greasy hands after devouring a meaty snack...

The new hot dog bun appears in several Angry Birds sets. Its part number is 6147214 and currently it's produced only in tan (LEGO: Brick yellow).

Sausages!

It has an anti-stud on the bottom and a curved slot into which the banger snugly fits.

Sausages!

It can be held in the hand with ease and angled for consumption.

Hot Dog!

Even the Hot Dog Man appreciates its convenence!

Sausages!

LEGO sausages have been produced in flesh, red and black. The flesh ones were, perhaps unsurprisingly, short-lived and were phased out before minifigs started devouring them. A pair of black ones were used in an Atlantis submarine, 7984 Deep Sea Raider, as part of the protective cage in front of the canopy.

For more interesting tidbits about LEGO sausages take a look at the topic Sausage Facts in the forum and to find out which sets contain them, see BrickLink.

Stay tuned for our reviews of the Angry Birds sets in the coming weeks.

Sumolego will love this, and it paves the way for a 2017 hot dog and hot dog bun factory modular.

Seconded!

Minifigs have always had a dearth of food items. Glad to see this changing.

This was soooooo needed.

In the meantime, I wonder why the Gingerbread Man's head wasn't rereleased or retooled as a hamburger? Seriously, put the head down flat. It's a hamburger.

That made me laugh more than I care to admit. ;)

You've excelled yourself with this article Huw. It's got to be the article of the week.

Excellent article, I do hope this piece makes it into more Lego sets.

At the time of this post, the bun also appears in the yet to be released fun in the park set 60134-1. It is also currently unavailable in the Lego Shop pick a brick menu! :(

I concur that this is the greatest article Brickset has ever written, and that right there is the reason why ^_^.

Finally! I'm going to need to buy this in bulk to make up for all the plain sausages I have!

Who knew a hot dog bun could cause this much excitement

I'm happy to see that hot dog bun pieces are now a reality (and wheelchair pieces too ) ;)

As an American, I have to ask: Did you write the article that way on purpose?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I actually have two of the black ones. They're very useful pieces at times.

Wow. I have been reading this site for years, but I just signed up today in order to comment on this article.

This is the most ridiculous and wonderful article I have ever read on this site. I absolutely love it. Thanks!

(Also: lol @ "bangers")

I have a sneaking suspicion that the next modular will contain decorative roof details consisting of grey hot dog buns...

I coincidentally had a hotdog this morning while reading. Suddenly this one taste better than before.

Best article I've read...!

I bet when Huw started this website, he never envisioned he'd be writing a post about hot dogs

Gravatar
By in United States,

Haha! Funny news! This is great though! How come it took so long to make these buns?! They look perfect, I am glad the mini figures can finally have these treats ball park style!

@Rob-ot5000, welcome aboard! I'm chuffed to hear that my latest ramblings have tempted you to join :)

> (Also: lol @ "bangers")

I guess that's not a word commonly used in the USA to describe sausages? :)

Had the first hotdog I've had for ages for lunch today, came home and read this. Best thing ever!

It would be nice if there was a City set with lots of food pieces including hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, pizzas, drumsticks, fruit and vegetables, ice creams, cupcakes and pies; and ketchup, mustard and bbq sauce. It could also include minifigures plus some chairs, tables, drinks and utensils. They could call it Fun at the Buffet.

The Lego is why I was drawn to this site. Articles like this are why I stay! Great write up and perspective on bangers ;-)

@Huw - Thanks for the welcome! Loving everything here, as always. And no, "bangers" aren't something we hear much of over here. :)

Huw, how on earth do you find the time to write all those brilliant articles? Plus reviews and photographing everything? Amazing!
BS is getting better and better by the day :-)

I had no idea sausages had been around for so long!

@dutchlegofan50 - To be fair I think it is a team effort given how many articles SprinkleOtter, CapnRex, TheBrickPal and other contributors publish on the homepage. That said, I appreciate Huw's importance to the site and all the work he does!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Yes, absolutely it is. We have a great team of contributors and the site would not be the same without them.
