New LEGO Minifigures Series Features First-Ever Disney Character Edition

– LEGO Minifigures Collection Features 18 Iconic Disney Characters –

BILLUND, Denmark (March 29, 2016) – The LEGO Group today announced its 18th collection of LEGO Minifigures starring some of The Walt Disney Company’s most beloved characters inspired by stories from across the entire Disney universe. Eighteen new minifigures bring to life in LEGO form for the first time the playful personalities of some of the most iconic characters from Disney classics such as Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland to Disney·Pixar favorites like The Incredibles and Toy Story.

“For more than 16 years, fans have been recreating their most beloved Disney stories through LEGO play,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president of licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group. “This year, we’re excited to give them a diverse collection of Disney characters from classic storylines, to never-before-seen LEGO likenesses of Disney icons in order to further the creative play possibilities for Disney and LEGO fans alike.”

This collectible series of LEGO Minifigures will be widely available for purchase in all major toy retailers, as well as at shop.LEGO.com and in LEGO Stores nationwide in May, with a suggested retail price of $3.99 (USD) each.

Disney Animated Classics Characters

From Disney’s collection of timeless animated characters, the LEGO Group introduces minifigure versions of the beloved Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse characters, their temperamental friend Donald Duck, and his leading lady, Daisy Duck. Enthusiasts of 1950s Disney stories will appreciate the inclusion of Alice and the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and Captain Hook from Peter Pan, and the evil witch Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. Disney fans will also love minifigure versions of Ariel and Ursula from The Little Mermaid and the beloved Genie and Aladdin from the fictional city of Agrabah featured in Aladdin, plus the ultimate alien friend, Stitch, from Lilo & Stitch.

Disney·Pixar-Inspired Heroes and Villains

Two Disney·Pixar characters never-before-seen in the LEGO world become minifigures – Mr. Incredible and archenemy Syndrome from Disney•Pixar’s The Incredibles. Additionally, fans can collect minifigure versions of two icons from the beloved Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story – Buzz Lightyear and the squeak-toy Alien from Pizza Planet.

Syndrome is perfection. Like Stitch as well. But the big head figures and Mr Incredible are, to put it mildly, garbage...

I need Stitch even more!

So weird, having got used to Disney minidolls, seeing Disney characters in minifig form instead... even ones that haven't been in minidoll form yet. It's uncanny, like they should have been minidolls instead. It confuses me because they won't be compatible with the regular Disney minidolls?

Also, why do Aladdin and the Genie have the same accessory?

Unfortunately I have no need or desire for any of these. When they do 'special' series like this and the Simpsons, I really wish they'd release a regular wave at the same time.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I want a contest for these!! They look amazing!

By in United States,

The beginning of the end, my friends.

By in Sweden,

I am struggling to see anything in this that is useful for parts... for me personally. Maybe the evil witchy lady. Not a fan of Disney so will be skipping these.

Gravatar
By in United States,

These are fun, but the only one that really catches my eye is Maleficent--she still has her creepiness!

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

^thomsedavi If I recall correctly, there usually are 2 cmf sets a year. And this Disney set will be the third. So you still have your two cmf sets :)

By in Ireland,

Really hoped they'd improve the printing scheme on Boardshorts Mickey. It's a really mixed bag isn't it e.g Syndrome is as good as Mr. Incredible isn't.

Too candy. Kinder Surprise is the best place for them.

Is that a black plume on the Geenie's head?

Only the cat looks interesting.

By in United States,

I like them for what they are, though I kind of wish there were regular pants for Genie, since he's often walking around with legs. I suppose a pair of blue pants will work, but I don't know if the red "belt" is on the torso or lower half. Otherwise I enjoy them. I'm not too picky with my things.

Gravatar
By in United States,

i think they are cool

Gravatar
By in Venezuela,

I really like Maleficent

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Is it just me or do the ones with moulded heads (and maleficent) look like the only ones worth getting?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Having had a closer look at them, I'll stick with my initial response. These are as easy a pass as the Simpsons were even at 50p

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Maybe try the Donald Duck arms on the Bespin guard - other than that, no reason for me to get any of these. Probably popular with kids though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I might Bricklink Maleficent's headpiece, could be useful for Mehpistopheles (Jorn Lande's character) in Avantasia's Wicked Trilogy.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

my major issue is there is 18 of them all my custom built racks only fit 10 sets of 16 each i may have to lose a couple so they look right.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like them all. Some translate from original character to minifigure better, but I certainly don't hate any of them. I love the potential of the new molded hair, hat, and outfit pieces for use in other minifigures.

I think the mismatched scale of the Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy figures to the rest definitely creates a feeling of people in costume, like you would find at the Disney parks. Not really a way around this.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nothing here that seems genuinely useful to me, but I appreciate their novelty and might get a few on account of that.

It surprises me a lot that Ariel has a new hairpiece, since they already made one especially for her in the Disney Princess sets! I know the Disney Princess merchandise often "glamorizes" the characters in a way that isn't totally consistent with how they appear in the actual movies they're from, but I'm quite surprised that either LEGO or Disney thought this fig merited a new hair mold.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is the first series I may skip altogether. Every previous series had a few figures I would buy multiples of as army builders or for the accessories. In this series most lack unique accessories and some have no accessory at all. The price increase to $3.99 didn't bother me until now, as most of these now seem very overpriced.
The Toy Story Alien is the worst of the group. There is nothing wrong with the figure itself. But selling it alone for $3.99 is ridiculous. It has already been available in several sets including 30070: Alien Space Ship, which was the alien and a space ship for $3.99. It may have some fancy new printing but that does not improve it's value in my opinion.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anyone know of a website (with reasonable prices, and in the US) where I can pre-order a solid case? Disney collectors are a determined lot, and so I'd rather play it safe!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Might get Peter Pan and Captain Hook. That's it

Gravatar
By in United States,

OK, LEGO. You have Syndrome and Ghost Rider out now; there's no excuse not to include Firestorm in a DC Superheroes set.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Figures are okay but they seemed to have skimped on the accessories.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

How does Genie stand? Looks like he is precariously balanced on that small base, with a footprint of maybe one minifigure foot... looks a bit unstable.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Seeing how many people are displeased with this set, I'm happy there will be more for me!

Gravatar
By in United States,

these look like a knock-off brand. Either that or downsized duplo. why Lego? why!?!??

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

I presume Donald/Daisy and Mickey/Minnie have the same head moulding (with different printing), with removable headgear?

Gravatar
By in United States,

These look absolutely fantastic. I haven't wanted so many figures in a series since the Monsters of yesteryear. Favourites are Ariel and Buzz at the moment.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Love the series, but why Maleficent and Stitch instead of Goofy or Winnie the Pooh?

Gravatar
By in United States,

i agree with jmjt4 winnie the pooh would be great. i like Donald Duck he is my favorite. i also like the Cheshire Cat

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think a problem some people have is they like the CMF largely because of the accessories and "new" elements, while these Disney ones really just focus on the characters themselves. The CMF series has been great for producing new and unique accessories.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I can finally finish my Disneyland MOC.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I see a lot of packet-feeling (or, more pragmatically, Bricklinking/Ebaying) in my future so I can get Ursula and maybe Maleficent. Otherwise, I'm happy to let this series pass me by, which is a relief, given how quickly they release new minifig series! We had 14 in October and I'm still in catch-up mode with the series 15 figures I want!

Gravatar
By in United States,

All these displeased people know fully well that they'll pick up a few bags if seen on a shelf lol. And speaking of bags, with the oversized heads and accessories, would the bags be larger, thus the number per case be different from the normal 60?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Why didn't they use the first mold for Buzz Lightyear's head that was used in the Toy Story sets?

Why did they bother to have a new shirt print for the green alien when one was already made?

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is excellent, mostly because of the premise being set by the release of these. It's a relief seeing Disney characters being made in minifig form instead of minidoll form, so maybe now the Disney sets will target both a female AND male audience from here on out. I got nothing personal against the minidolls, but the sets they come in are pretty clearly feminine and targeting females. Elves has been SO close to targeting a balanced audience imo, but it still falls just short of that. It'd be really cool to see fantasy-themed sets that both target a balanced audience *and* have minifigs, to accompany the sets that have minidolls.

Gravatar
By in Spain,

I don't know guys. Some of them look amazing. Maleficient is just perfect , Stitch is really cool, Alice is nice with that new dress piece, the Cheshire Cat is ok too...but others are simply awful. The Genie looks weird, Buzz is just horrible, Hook's face is neither fully cartoon nor Lego-ish enough...Mr.Incredible is not an interesting choice...

But I agree it's cool that they did this series. I just hope they do more series and not only with Disney cartoon characters but also with super heroes and other licensed characters that you normally get through expensive sets only.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Maleficent looks fantastic!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anyone know if the Donald Duck head is the same mold as the Daisy Duck head, and the Hat and Bow are just add on pieces to the heads?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Some of them look good, some of them don't... Mr. Incredible looks awful, the big-head figures look terrible and bizarre, Buzz looks really, really weird without his molded head. WHY, LEGO?

I do like Maleficent, Peter Pan, Stitch and Ariel. Also, the alien by itself for $4 is ridiculous, no accessories even! that guy got chucked into sets that needed an extra minifigure, *cough*Construct-A-Zurg, and was in a $4 polybag with a jeep!

How did they manage to make so many crappy-looking minifigures, some of which they've ALREADY DONE!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Personally, these pictures make them look a lot better than they did in the leak (all those with the Mighty Micros-esque manic grins don't look right though, I'm looking at you Hook and Genie! And if they reused the alien head mould, why didn't they also reuse the far superior Buzz Lightyear moulded head?), but still I think these are a bit hit and miss, but in general the moulded head characters seem better to me than the ones with traditional minifig heads.

I'm a bit disappointed that Ursula's octopus legs piece seems to extend right up to the torso and include her breasts and belly, so while it definitely works on the figure, it also vastly reduces the reuse value of that part for me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

One could say the price increase is because of the license, and with Disney, I could think that would be justified, but since it is still this same price as the previous few series AND basically no one has any accessories, a lot of money must have went into molds or something (which is odd considering most CMF get new molds).

Also, the 18 instead of 16 figures hurts things. It adds two characters likely needing new molds/colors that takes away from someone else.

The molded heads look better as collectibles, but they also take away some of the LEGO charm being molded. My favorite is Maleficent, which I was hoping they would make one with the movie, but didn't and now it isn't minidoll so yay!

As for the set, I'm sure I'll get a complete set anyway and some extras for the kid. But it is getting old/tiring buying these expensive things.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like these but I'm not a fan of the bigger head figures. I just don't get why the big headed figures don't have the Lego style like the others. They look too realistic, but I will be getting all of them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Maleficient is a must for me (I can think of a scenario or two where she would fit well), other than her I think Aladdin would do.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@The Brick King Hit the nail on the head. They look awful. If you saw them for sell on ebay you'd assume they were some rip-off Chinese fakes.

All together they look like they are from two or three different makers. Maybe that's why there are 18 so any self respecting collector won't want to display them alongside other 16-figure series.

Definitely the first series I can easily give a miss.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Ick!
They look awful

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Now it is possible I have missed something..... but does the piece count of some of the large headed minifigures possibly suggest they contain a separate normal head piece inside the over-sized head piece? Otherwise why would the Pizza Planet Alien have 4 pieces and the Cheshire cat 5 pieces as neither have accessories (the cat's extra piece is presumably its tail). I'm hoping this means they represent theme park mascots with people inside a costume.

Drool... want!

By in United States,

I want Aladin, Donald, and Buzz. I do have the old Buzz, but this one has more detailed arm and leg printings, and printing is scratched on my old one.

I hope the make more Dr. Who sets - if they do, Aladin's hairpiece in brown would be absolutely PERFECT for the 11th doctor!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Buzz Lightyear had already been released as well as the alien in set 7598, and Buzz looked better before. How did they fail to add a clear blue Tinkerbell statuette with Peter Pan?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

There seem to be mixed feelings about these, but I like 'em all.

I would have preferred Syndrome's eyes black. Painted over them in Photoshop and I like them much better black.

Blue eyes were okay in the Indiana Jones line, but it's been a while since we've seen them (Clone Wars characters don't count)... so yeah, it looks extra weird here. They don't seem to do green, hazel, or brown eyes, so blue just seems out of place. Especially since figures don't have pupils and the pupils just become blue.

I'd like it if TLG would standardize, and avoid blue eyes on human minifigures in the future.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What an absolute failure. I'm not even going to bother showing these to my Disney obsessed five year old...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Bricklunch, I see what you're talking about. Brickset's database does seem to list most of these as including one more part than it appears they have. My first thought is that it is the display plate, but none of the earlier CMFs listings add the plate to the piece count. So now I don't know what to think.

Gravatar
By in United States,

My mistake, I was counting the display plates. Will fix!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The second I saw Alice my wallet emptied!
I really love that they made these normal Minifigs instead of new molds for all the heads like Simpsons.
Call me old school, but I hate it when Lego needlessly makes new molds for stuff, I think that's what makes some of their old sets so charming, the ingenuity.

I'll be picking up all of these except Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy. As they don't look "Lego" enough for me.

@Program Couldn't agree with you more! I love "normal" minifig proportions, however that stitch is looking fantastic! I'll make an exception for that little guy :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

They look fantastic,can't wait to head to Tesco and buy my first 18!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I didn't think it was possible, but I'm actually pretty into these. I like that they kept Lego proportions except for when the characters are "mascot-style" like they would be at Disneyland.

I'm curious/worried where the CMF line goes from here, but this is okay.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So much moaning about the new line but I'd bet my teeth that the naysayers will be the ones buying umpteen boxes of them come May and flogging the rare ones for 3 times the value on eBay. As usual.

I'd guess the naysayers are the same people who moan about Disney now owning Star Wars and yet have been to see the new movie 8 times and have all of the toys.

Personally, I'll be buying them. No complaints from me.

Gravatar
By in United Arab Emirates,

I appreciate all the figures from this series and in particular would like to see them expand on the Peter pan and capt Hook theme. Having already touched upon them with the Duplo Jake and the never land pirates range, I think this could be a successful range of sets with plenty of opportunity to reference scenes from the various films/animations.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

I like them a lot! Being a mega Disney fan (what's in a name), I'm glad to have minifigure Disney people instead of minidols. Like the dress on mini-mouse, only Mr incredible looks funny, his head doesn't work for me.
Sooo excited

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Huw is there a reason that there is no picture for Aladdin? Did you not get that one or did it not get uploaded correctly?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

And the word of the day appears to be "naysayers". Thanks Grimlock!

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

They're just so all over the place. Some of them look really fantastic (Ariel, Ursula, Malificent) while others look downright terrible. The utterly massive heads on Mickey/Donald/etc. are also quite bizarre but I think they'd look alright as long as they're not placed next to the other (much like the ones from The Simpsons).

And that's basically it, as a series, as minifigures placed next to each other in this photo it just looks like a jumbled mess, but seen separately they'll probably look quite nice.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Not sure what happened to Aladdin but he should show up soon.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Some of the character selections seem odd to me. For example, why not Pinocchio instead of a minor character like the Toy Story alien? Further, why even include any Toy Story characters at all since we already had a Toy Story theme that had all the main characters. I suppose there's room for another wave.

Gravatar
By in Indonesia,

I had high expectation for the duck family. But seeing the first two like this, I'm not sure anymore. Looks like a Donald-duck/Daisy-duck suits guy to me. And Donald shouldn't be taller than Hook...!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Lots of hate in the comments.... My god people lighten up a little. These CMF are for kids (like all LEGO) so if you think they look strange, goofy, ugly, or down right terrible, DONT BUY THEM! I love the way Micky, Minnie, Donald, Daisy all look.

The only thing I can see as a complaint is the fact they switched from 16 Minifigs to 18 Minifigs.... Not a big deal really.

This won't be the last of the Disney CMF we will see. Hope we get the rest of the original gang!

By in United States,

Cool, intresting... I want syndrome but not really any of the other ones.

Mixed bag for me. Some of them look great, others (I'm looking at you, Mr Incredible, Buzz Lightyear), not so much! I'll probably still buy the lot though, being the completist that I am!

@tkatt and @TheBrickPal - thanks for the clarification. Interest in them has somewhat waned now the piece count discrepancy has been explained away. Oh well.

Maybe Hook and Peter Pan too...

Just as an informative post for people talking about the "price increase".

Since 2014 (excluding The Lego Movie) all CM have been 3.99.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@TheBrickPal that's because those emotions are from the upcoming, even darker, InsideOut sequel X-D

I don't like coming across as angry, but I feel like people forget the fun in this hobby. Just enjoy what we have, it could all be gone in a flash....

Gravatar
By in United States,

These are all very neat. It is sort of interesting how all of the minifigure head characters have traditional minifigure styling as opposed to something more unexpected. Might that have been a guideline set by Disney?

Gravatar
By in Spain,

were's Elsa from Frozen? not here. I´d like an Elsa minifig.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

As a massive Disney fan, these greatly appeal; even if I'm not a big lego collector anymore, they're still fun to see xD Stitch is the must-get in this wave for me, I reckon, but I love how Maleficent, Syndrome and Aladdin look too.

Though the alien... is a weird choice, I admit. I guess Lego just had a surplus of the head parts left over from the Toy Story line and wanted to use them up?

*casually hopes to see Wreck-it Ralph and Vanellope in a future wave, though*

Is it just me or does Mr incredible looks a bit too much like Dash? Wanna get Maleficent though.

Ambrose, I thought so too. I think if the have painted some lines to define some cheek bones would have created the effect that his face is longer. The short Lego head currently does make him look more like Dash.

Gravatar
By in United States,

As a Lego kid from the 80s, I like this for several reasons but will only go into one. I have a 5 month old daughter. I don't like the figures for friends and elves. Just make more female figures.
Although I don't care about most of these figures, perhaps someone in the up will figure that half the population is women, they shouldn't be the same figures as the ones they use for aliens.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The big-head ones are awful (except the Alien), as are some of the normal figs - Buzz Lightyear looks terrible because his head looks nothing like the actual shape. Most of these parts are completely useless except for their one specific use... remember last time Lego started to go this way, with once-used parts? I won't be getting any of these. Bleurgh.
