What is your favourite minifigure?

Posted by ,

The modern minifigure is celebrating its fortieth anniversary in 2018. More than 10,000 different figures have been released since 1978 and we are asking Brickset readers to participate in a poll by selecting their single favourite minifigure of all time!

However, we must first compile a shortlist of minifigures for that poll so invite you to identify your favourite figure in a comment. We will then choose about twenty of those minifigures based upon how frequently they are mentioned and the number of likes that each comment receives.

You can browse all 10,000 minifigures here. Please only mention one such figure in your comment and identify them clearly as certain characters have been depicted on several occasions. The final poll will be published later this week.

LEGO Batman Movie: Two Face is one of the best figures I’ve ever seen and owned...

The melted face, the dual molded hair, the heart underwear showing thru the burned clothes. The detail is amazing and the fact that it’s Billy Dee Williams from the Tim Burton Batman movie is extra brilliant.

Absolutely Darth Revan (5002123) for being basically the most interesting Star Wars character - and they just gave him/her away for free as a polybag! Wonderfully collectable and a fun reminder of my favourite Star Wars games.

For me its Clone Pilot Clone Wars. This may seem to be a strange choice, but I got the V-19 Torrent when I was 6 or 7. I loved the set and it was my biggest set ever up to that point. I played all the time with that figure and completely wore that figure out. I put Indiana Jones accessories on him and had all sorts of adventures on horseback with him. Since then other figures have taken the spotlight, but I will never forget what that little figure meant to me when I was little.

It’s got to be classic 1978 spaceman, fireman or policeman with smiley face. I’d loved Lego until then, but they enabled me to build worlds.

It is definitely hard to pinpoint a favorite, however I've always quite enjoyed the Red Shirt Soldier from the old Pirate Theme. The new 2009 version of the blue coats were interesting, but the red shirt from 1989ish was definitely one of the best generic troop builders to collect. Kind of wish I still had one of the older ones in my collection to display with the rest of the Pirates theme.

Gal Gadot Wonder Woman!

By in United Kingdom,

It was a extremely hard decision but i’ve concluded that my favourite figure is Homer Simpson from the Simpsons house from 2014

The reason is because he introduced duel moulded arms and leg and had a new and for the time exclusive head piece and the print is exceptional

Gravatar
By in France,

Classic red spaceman. Because it’s classic...... and space......and classic space!!!!

If not i really like Glam metal Batman

By in Canada,

Captain RedBeard from the first Pirates theme in 1989! I loved the uniqueness of this character, and always enjoyed hunting for him in the Lego catalogues. Plus, he introduced unique elements - a new take on the arm appalettes, the peg leg (!), the hook hand...everything about that figure was just SO cool in 1989...and is still really cool today.

My favourite is the Anubis guard. Had to separate them off from magnets, but the time they were available in sets were the same period as my dark ages. (Almost the black monarch ghost won, but Anubis a bit better)

Heath Ledger's The Joker.

Race car guy! Because who doesn't love someone with a tiny car around their waist? Also, the ammount of printing and the detail are both unreal.

By in United States,

With by far the most detail of any Star Wars figure and my favorite character to boot, I choose red arm C3PO from the 2015 polybag

Gravatar
By in United States,

Either Grand Admiral Thrawn, A-wing pilot/Tallissan Lintra, ARC trooper with backpack-Elite clone trooper, or Azog with a closed mouth. All for their accuracy and detail.

Gravatar
By in United States,

My favorite is definitely Agent Chase from the Agents line. He was from a smaller line, but the print for the uniform was a great color scheme. The one from Jet pack Pursuit was the best version because of the double-sided face print. One side was with goggles, and the other without.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Emmett, for being an iconic character who incorporates very baseline nostalgia in his appearance. He's got the classic Lego face, the original brown hair (with the added cowlick for distinction), and he's in a variant of a traditional construction worker costume.

Question: does this poll take into account variances? I'm sure there's a few dozen versions of Stormtroopers and Batman, and even "Lego Batman Movie Batman" has a bunch of different heads.

The newest Han Solo (from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope): the combination of the new hair and the the smirk represent the character perfectly: https://brickset.com/minifigs/sw771/han-solo- (75159-75205)

What a Sophie's Choice! There are a clear two for me, but keeping with your wishes and only getting one choice: Noah (frnd093: Friends Noah, Dark Blue Cropped Trousers, Red and White Striped Top) from #41097-1 , Heartlake Hot Air Balloon. He’s my go-to figure when I’m playing with the kids, and he often hangs out on the coffee table while I watching television. I know he wouldn’t even get a nomination in a minidoll exclusive poll because he’s at the bottom of the minor Friends character barrel, but he has been my favorite since we first built the hot hair balloon. At least, I get to call him out for some attention!

One of the early ones: the chef004 (1979), with light gray legs and the wonderfully molded toque:
https://brickset.com/sets/containing-minifig-chef004

First had my hands on that minifig when Saint Nicolas brought my older sister the 675 Snack Bar (ah, those printed ice-cream bricks), and fully began to love it when the same holy man brought me my 7745 train, in 1986.

IMHO, all of them are my favorite. It’s really hard to have a favorite these days with all the impressive designs and details, with the characters brought to life via the minifigures. They all have something unique to offer to the collection!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Futuron - Blue, and Captain Red Beard with Pirate Hat with Skull. I really like Futuron - Blue because as a teenager I loved the space sets of that era, and if I have a minifig in my pocket with the flip-up helmet shield, I'd fidget with the shield, flipping it up and down in my pocket. The other colors, and Blacktron would be a close 2nd. And Captain Red Beard... just so unique and cool.

Oola from Star Wars. Her bright green colour is just divine.

I'm going to nominate three for inclusion.
1. The humble Classic Red Spaceman, first figure I ever owned, still own it and it just makes me smile when I see it.
2. Original Darth Vader, brilliant, iconic and for me was the start of something special in my adult relationship with LEGO.
3. Bumblebee Girl, because she is fun, I do not own her and she signifies something to me about the new era of LEGO and the wonderful things that they now make.

The Hiker from the CMF Series 16 - he’s perfect for photography and his accessories are amazing (and even has a LEGO Easter Egg in the form of the ‘Greeble Trail’)

By in United States,

Man, I had a very difficult time picking just one! I was able to make a list of about 10 or so of my favorites, but choosing the order from those was frustratingly hard. I like minifigs with attention to detail on the printings or that have unique parts that set them aside from most others. There are also the ones connected to the subjects I love, such as Greek Mythology, Disney, Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc. There are also some very nice minifigures I am looking forward to in the coming year, but I won't pick them yet because I'd like to see them firsthand before I decide on them.

I think my favorite comes down to Queen Amidala from set 9499. She was always on the box logo for the Phantom Menace sets when first introduced, but they never made her a character in that regal garb during that time. I thought that form of Amidala would never be made, so when it was revealed that she'd come in the new Gungan Sub set, I was so giddy to see all the behind-the-scenes design pictures. The unique part of her lower torso is wonderfully designed, her hairpiece crown is awesome, and the attention to detail is spot-on!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I sometimes wonder which minifig I would grab if some disaster happens and I could only take one with me.

While I have tons of favorite minifigs with elaborate printing and accessories, if I could only choose one character, it would be Benny. Not because he is fancy, but because he represents so much. History, simplicity, happiness, playfulness, imagination, and my own relationships with LEGO are all bundled up in this one little dude. Go, Benny! :D

The original Johnny Thunder gets my vote.

All black Blacktron with light grey torso details. I played with this guy all the time as a kid. One day he was a space pirate, the next day a secret agent. All that black with small grey details are so cool. https://brickset.com/minifigs/sp001/blacktron-1

By in United States,

Just one ... ?

That's tough. I would have to go with the Red Classic Space Man. (sp005)
https://brickset.com/minifigs/sp005/classic-space-red-with-airtanks

That would be my top pick because as he was one of my favorite Lego figures when I first started to build.

For something more recent, I would go with the Series 16 Spy. (col257)
https://brickset.com/minifigs/col257/spy-minifig-only-entry

But my top pick would still be the classic red space man.

Iron Man’s Silver Centurion variant - the dual molded arms and printing on the legs, armor, and helmet make it one of the best and most detailed figures out there.

I can think of several favourite minifigures, many from the Collectable Minifigures Series, but if I had to pick one, it would be Samurai X from set 70625 that gets my vote.

For me it's between two super-detailed CMFs: Galaxy Patrol and Frightening Knight, both for their introduction of multiple new parts that really define them in their sci-fi and fantasy genres... plus they both have nicely 'mature' colour schemes. If I had to pick one? Galaxy Patrol, for sure. That one's been on display for years.

By in United States,

It's hard to choose just one. Figures like the Classic Spacemen are special because of the nostalgia behind them. Bob from Lego Universe (gen 025) is a meaningful figure to me personally. Others such as many of the CMFs are nice not because of any neaning, but because they are simply spectacular figures.

If I had to choose a single figure, I think it would be the Series 18 Cake Guy. Bob is still tempting, but I think the quirky design makes the Cake Guy the winner for me.

The White Nindroid from the Ninjago 2017 Bricktober pack. The mask and armor look so nice, and I love the faceprint for the minifig.

Harley Quinn with tutu from The Lego Batman Movie and N-Pop Girl from The Lego Ninjago Movie are both favourites of mine from recent themes (and are actually quite similar) but I think I have to go with Queen Amidala in full ceremonial garb. And that hairpiece! Majestic.

By in United Kingdom,

Big fan of the Vader minifig just because of who he is but my favourite Minifig out of all the ones I have so far has to be sw622: The Inquisitor from the TIE advanced Prototype set #75082.

https://brickset.com/minifigs/sh238/the-joker-dark-pink-suit

Basic minifig, but super bright and unusual colours for legs, body and hair, great looking face and he even has the moustache covered by makeup. Plus he's only available in a single expensive set which ramps up the desirability factor.

I'm hoping something like the classic spacemen or policeman doesn't win. Yes - they are awesome and broke new ground, but I think the shortlist should be made up of minifigs that have reached the pinnacle of what minifigs can be.

Because It's the only Groot in pure minifigure version so far, my pick is: TEEN GROOT!

As it is far too difficult to select an all time favorite Minifigure I shall just choose one that has much sentimental value to me.

I'm going to go with Squidman from Space Police III. Really cool character!

There are so many cool figures. The classic spaceman and the stock car driver from 6634 are firm childhood favorites. But picking the best of the best for me probably goes to the minifigure I take out when I want to shot some photos. The hiker from CMF16 wins. dual printed legs with some great detail on the pockets. A cool hoodie top with a rucksack clip belt across his middle, the happy and lost double sided face and two excellent printed tiles, the clear 1x1 compass is just perfect. All topped off with the well chosen spiked hair and the camping pack and roll mat.

It shows what LEGO can really do with a minifigure after 40 years.

If I were to ask my childhood self this question, I would probably go with whichever minifigure that has the most number of parts and accessories. Could it be Boba Fett, which the helmet, range-finder, cape, and rocket/jetpack. Too bad they didn't develop a wrist-rocket attachment.

There are so many minifigures that I like, but ultimately, I chose Captain Rex from 75012. He is by far one of my favorite Star Wars characters, so I had to choose his best variant. He has lots of cool detail and printing all over him, and I love the fabric pauldron and kama pieces used. https://brickset.com/minifigs/sw450/captain-rex-(75012)

Picking randomly from the at least twenty top contestants, I'll place the DW Cyberman at the top, with honorable mentions to Aragorn (default ranger outfit), Screenslaver, Stay Puft, all of the Adventure Time minifigures, Egghead, King Tut (DC Comics), 1966 Batman, etc., etc., etc.

The Black Panther minifigure from the Infinity War range. I really love the subtle diamond printing and the simple design... sh466: Black Panther (76100)

I'm sticking to just figures I own, that I've never disassembled, and that I've gone out of my way to get. And in that case, only 1 CMF has been in my collection long enough to qualify:
S16 Rogue.

Honorable Mentions:
CW 2008 Clone Trooper
Deathstroke
S18 Dragon and Cat Costumes.

Mine is Queen Amidala, being that she is so detailed.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I have to go with sw005: Scout Trooper from set #7128.
This set not only me pulled me out of my dark ages but also down the very slippery and expensive slope of collecting Lego Star Wars figures. I've long since abandoned trying to collect every version of every figure due to the many superior reissues but this one will always stay in my collection (and Luke from the same set for the same reason. And original Boba Fett. And original Vader, Leia, C3PO, oh dear....)

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Mine is Queen Amidala from the 9499 Gungan Sub.

By in Denmark,

Okay, I know you’re only looking for ONE, but I have an admission: I have actually 4.

Who can choose ONE from ALL these amazing figures? Some of them I want more than one of, but there are some I really need more than one of which I probably can’t live without.

My first one is clearly the baby from CMF Series 16. I already own one, but if it was possible, I could own 100. I’m already planning on buying all the other City babies. But the one from Series 16 is the cutest one with the bib.

My 2nd favoruite figure is Baby Groot from Marvel Super Heroes 76081. He’s so sweet and I would wish I could get another of him for my collection.

My two other favourites comes from the newest Disney Princess set, 41152. I’m a fan of the new designed Maleficent, which earlier appeared in the Disney CMF. I think it’s the doll style that makes her look amazing.
Even though I’m not a fan of the three fairies from Sleeping Beauty, I love the design of Merryweather in the set. She’s so small and looks cool. Hope they’ll make Flora and Fauna. It’s not that I don’t like their personality, but their design isn’t the most perfect choice - I know it’s from 1959 but a better character design could’ve been chosen

That was my 4 favourite figures. Besides them comes of course figures like some of them from Disney CMF, the Parr family, the crew of the Ghost and probably a few others :D

I limited it down to minifigures I own, and then decided that the minifigure I was most excited about when I opened the box was the Imperial Death Troopers from 75156 krennic's imperial shuttle.

It is pretty hard to name only one favourite minifigure as there are so many fantastic ones. But well I chose my very first Darth Vader Minifig. The one from 7200 Final Duel. Brickset Number SW004. https://brickset.com/minifigs/sw004

Gravatar
By in United States,

Because my comment must only name one, I am going with: Roboforce Yellow!
He's nonlicensed space, has a great custom helmet, and leg printing before it was common. My top 3 all had these, but he was groundbreaking. He's also old enough for the classic Lego smile - but with cool shades!

Heath Ledger Joker from UCS Tumbler

Boba Fett from the UCS Slave I.

I would have to say Darth Revan. He is, in my opinion, the greatest star wars character and it was great to get him as a minifigure.

The Mouth of Sauron (lor064). The head printing is amazing and so is the helmet. It’s so unique and a thing of nightmares.

You're pulling on too many strings....the best depiction of a real life character, the most impressive printing, the biggest impact from or starting a genre, the most rare, the most nostalgic, the best inclusion of a beard, the best base design to start an army builder etc etc etc

It's too much man for our heads to cope with.....hence all the comments :o)

By in New Zealand,

Man tough ask. So many favourite characters. I'll have to settle on Indiana jones IAJ001.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is a tougher question than I originally thought...reading through the answers. There are so many, Iron Patriot, prototype armor Boba Fett, Revan, red arm Threepio, Silver Centurion...to name a few from Licensed.

Then we have the puking guy from the Mixer, or the singer from the Diner, both have great expressions. Or the many costumed CMF figs.

I’m gonna go with who initially popped in my head, prototype Boba Fett.

So many choices! So many ways to define “best” too...in terms of accuracy to source material, white Boba Fett might be my favorite. In terms of most iconic, definitely classic blue spaceman. In terms of detail, printing, accessories, etc. I really like the Witchking, the Atlantean soldier with gold armor from Atlantis, the CMF specter, the Airport battle Scarlet Witch, the Taskmaster.....

Probably better off just waiting to vote on the top 20 haha

Soooo many good choices that everyone has listed above...As others have said, it's next to impossible to pick just one, so I will throw out a few that I love and did not see mentioned above:

Ghost Cole from Ninjago Skybound NJO242
General Zod (with armor) SH076
Nadakhan from Ninjago Skybound NJO195
Snowtrooper SW568.

But in choosing one that people will actually vote for, I'd say either Vitruvius or Queen Amidala.

Other top ones:

Hot Dog Man

Ultra Agents Infearno
Glam Metal Batman
Ninjago Scythe Master Ghoultar
Evil Wizard (from Series 13)

My favourite minifig is https://brickset.com/minifigs/sw187/rebel-scout-trooper

Difficult (impossible?) choice. I would go for Stass Allie (75016) SW469.

The idea of having a poll to determine our favourite minifigure is inspired, but the methodology is deeply flawed. There will most likely be a position effect, that is, a bias in favour of minifigures mentioned early on. Lots of people are going to start at the top, like a few as they go down the list and give up part way. I doubt many are as nutty as me and going to go through 360+ posts!

@Zander From my understanding of the article, Capn is going to compile the nominations from the comments into a list of the twenty most named figures and then create the poll. I hoping for three polls though: overall, licensed, and non-licensed.

I do hate being one that strictly adheres to the “rules”, but I do it. I have two well-loved figures—one from my yesterday childhood and one from my current childhood with my children, but I respected the Capn and named only one. The petty part of me hopes the comments naming more than one are ignored when compiling the polls for those of us that really thought about what makes a minifigure truly their favorite.

Although the mods may be looking this far down (because that is the Brickset dedication) I don't know how many others are... but my one would probably be:

Max Rebo!

Doubt he'll get shortlisted but the fancy moulded head and really bright colour both do it for me.

From a scan down the comments, it looks like Classic Spaceman is by far the leader - I would rather it was a slightly more contemporary and/or detailed figure but I understand why a lot of AFOLs picked it - forgone conclusion or not.

Definitely the collectible minifig 042: the elf. Never ever before did a fig cause so much excitement and so many rumours as this one. Was it an omen?

We almost didn't dare to dream and boy, what a luck! We got both.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can sort of see the point of the large number of people who nominated a key minifigure from their early Lego days, because that kind of nostalgia is a hugely personal thing. I had an early love for various pirates and various Forestmen, and was tempted to go with one of those. And with licensed figures, you look for great detail, accurate representation, and interesting detailing or molding -- I was tempted to mention Queen Amidala for that reason too.

But for sheer inspiration, I have to nominate one of the Lego group's own figures, out of the imagination of some designer. It absolutely thrilled me when I saw the picture on the CMF sheet -- the Shark Army Octopus figure https://brickset.com/sets/71019-12/Shark-Army-Octopus. I love the crazed look in the eyes and the exhausted look in the bags under them, I love the fish-handled weaponry, and I love the use of a head-topper that got molded into an insanely detailed animal from nature. And without Lego, it wouldn't have existed in three-dimensional form at all.

I've been noticing some interesting trends here in this article. I'm going to give my top 3 favorite figures (even though most of my figures are relatively new)

1.Infinity Wars Gamora: This figure has absolutely beautiful printing everywhere, from her head all the way down to her legs. Not only that, but it is not a repeat, unlike some other figures from that wave.
2.Outriders. Even though the wave has a lot of repeats, the Outriders stand out as a a great army builder. While it can be argued they are not as famous as the Storm Troopers or Clone Troopers, their appearance does resemble something very eerie...
3. Zane from Skybound wave: The pure nostalgia makes me pick this one. This was a figure from the very first set that I reviewed here on Brickset. While that review may have not been one of my better ones, it opened me into the reviewing world and makes me look back on what a wonderful site this truly is.

I chose this version of Emmet because I find this face print to be the most enjoyable and most true to the character out of the many Emmet faces.

With regard to the methodology of the poll, I do not actually plan to add up precisely the number of comments which refer to a particular minifigure and the likes those comments receive. Instead, I will be reading through the comment thread and shortlisting figures that are mentioned on several occasions, as well as those which have received a notably large number of likes.

I was expecting about twenty minifigures to emerge as clear favourites and that certainly seems to have been the case so far. Many thanks to everyone for their contributions and please continue to share your favourite minifigure!

Although today's minifigures go all out on detail and iconic design, you can trace it back to one minifigure who broke new ground, and that's Robin Hood from the original Forestmen. Even though he was a simple smiley face, his character came through on the torso printing- money bags!- and the first named minifigure was born.

No Robin Hood, then no Captain Redbeard, no Darth Vader, no Batman...

Firstly, to those doubting that anyone was reading through all 440+ posts, most AFOL's in my experience are borderline OCD (Myself included) and certainly did read them all, as well as scroll through my 500+ minifigs.  

I understand the nostalgia vote, and loved the classic spacemen and Blacktron figures of my childhood, as well as my black falcons. Looking objectively though, I have barely touched my pre- dark ages minifigs since my return to Lego. 

I also agree that there are some awesome figures in the CMF range, including the classic king and queen, spy and hiker to name a few. Most figures get better year by year, more detailed printing, more parts printed, dual moulded parts etc, but for me, it was Star Wars sets, along with Brickset and LDD which ended my dark ages, and I love so many of the SW figures, but especially the starfighter pilots, so for that reason, my vote has to be for SW558, Grey Squadron Pilot (75050). 

Can't wait to see the shortlist.

Any cavalry minifig from the Frontier Patrol set (6706-1). As a child I really liked these bluecoat soldiers because of movies like Dances with Wolves and Son of the Morning Star. However, I overlooked the theme's original release in 1999 for various reasons. Fortunately, a Lego store still had a Cavalry Colonel minifig for sale in their glass counter in 2011. I did not hesitate to buy it.

It's hard to pick just one. My modern favourite is the 'friends are family' Joker from the Joker Manor set. When I watched the movie I was like 'I must have that', then was disappointed it wasn't a real figure, then was delighted when it finally appeared in a set.

For classic nostalgia value, I vote original Captain Redbeard. I had one of those island sets with the big plastic base and the brown bridge and I loved it.

So I'm not sure people consider this a minifigure, I do, but I'd say the 2012 R2-D2 with the light bluish grey head (or any Astromech for that matter) if that doesn't count, I'd say the classic Boba Fett with the single piece for a helmet/jetpack and a black head.

By in United States,

I'm seeing a lot of Captain RedBeards and the Classic Space minifigs. Personally my favorite is the Star-Lord minifig from 76019 Starblaster Showdown. Is one of the first ones I bought and the details are great. https://brickset.com/sets/containing-minifig-sh127

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

So hard to choose, but imho it must be a LEGO original, in other words, yellow head. As a kid my favourites were https://brickset.com/minifigs/res006 and https://brickset.com/minifigs/cop009

From the modern era Emmet, Benny and Wyldstyle come to mind, the mountainbiker from the new people pack and to go classic LEGO you would have to include an Octan figure and I like the latest version best https://brickset.com/minifigs/rac060

And then reading some comments Wolfpack and Captain Redbeard are excellent choices as well...

But my problem with my own list is that none of them has the standard smile. So my final pick is... https://brickset.com/minifigs/pi061/imperial-soldier

Like I said, classic LEGO, no fancy double moulds etc and all the technology we have today. This figure just works with all it's simplicity. If I had these figures in a new set today I would still love it!

My favorite is custom made, but as for Lego Branded minifigures, I would have to say my favotire is probably Setele Shan of the Old Republic.

It is hard to choose only one. But if I have to, it would be the classic white stormtrooper minifigure. I love all of them from the 2001 version to the newest ones, but of course the latest rendition looks the best.

I was a bit stuck for a minute - I was thinking something from Lord of the Rings - got me out of my dark ages and so much detail, but I have to go classic from my childhood and anything from the UFO subtheme of space:
https://brickset.com/minifigs/category-Space/subcategory-UFO
Amazing detail in both the droids and the aliens but if I have to chose one it would have to be UFO alien blue - amazing helmet, trans yellow head, I believe first lego alien figure and just a lot of good memories.

I think I just have to run with Achu (ADV001) from the 1999 Adventurers Jungle theme. He was the first minifigure I got who was actually meant to represent a specific character - as opposed to generic Lego City minifigs - so I grant that there's a nostalgic element there...

But ever since I got him, I've thought of him as an outstanding minifigure design for the time. That headdress, with the printing and the cool bird-like shape... the patterning of the rest of his costume... especially having intricate leg printing in an era when that was still rare. And let's not forget THAT CAPE.

He gets my nomination, for sure ^^

https://brickset.com/minifigs/sw610/boba-fett-pauldron-helmet-jet-pack-printed-arms-and-legs

UCS - Boba Fett

So I went through the collection and thought of three things to grade on:
1. Minifig Technology (things like dual molding, side printing, unique molds or other unique aspects).
2. Recognizability of the character by both Lego Fans and the General public.
3. Rarity. Estimated number of figures produced which can be based on the exclusivity or cost of the set.
4. Realism. Does the figure look like the real character.

It was a very hard decision. So many great figures.

A classic figure with a simple design and the original head type (the top of the head is solid) from a time before licencing took the forefront. It's not that I don't like licensed sets, they've come up with some good ones, but this figure and others like it are what made the minifigure the icon it is today.

The Original War Machine (SH066) from the 2013 Iron Man 3.
Really, really cool minifigure and the second one I got formed the basis for my all action heroine Nova Steele, Hero of the Space Troopers. If interested, you can see her on my Instagram account. Just search #novasteele or #brickosphere.

I guess any of the Space Police Officer 3 range from a few years back would be a close second as have over a hundred of these guys, forming the core of the afore mentioned Space Troopers for Lego 40k games and other stuff. The CMF Series 10 Librarian in at number 3, narrowly beating the CMF Series 13 Galaxy Trooper.

With 10000+ its kind of hard to choose; there are lots of minifigures I don't own that I think are amazing. I would recommend first going through each sub-theme and have people vote on their favourite (even if they don't own). Secondly then take the most popular from each sub theme to identify the most popular minifigure for each theme. Finally then conduct a vote on the favourite minifigures from all themes. It may take a while but it may be more interesting then trying to sift through the 10000 and choosing 1.
