Marshwiggle Minifigs

For those of you not so immersed in Lego as we are, the term Minifig is short for mini-figure, and it refers to the small (mini) men (figures) made by Lego. They make all sorts! Some are from movies, like the Star Wars series, and some are more generic, like policemen or knights. While David was away, he was able to visit a extensive Lego store. At the store he was able to construct his own minifigs - so he decided to make a set of Marshwiggles. He was a little limited in what he could choose, so he did the best he could, and this is what he came up with:

On the left is the Daddy minifig wearing a bowtie and wielding a sword to illustrate his position in the family. The Mummy minifig is next, with glasses and long hair (a braid down the back). She is wearing an astronaut on her shirt to show her engineering background, and has binoculars to keep an eye on everyone. The Emmi minifig is wearing overalls, has long hair and has an axe to symbolize her interest in gardening. Tim's minifig is wearing a top hat because he likes to take charge, he also has a sword because he likes swordfighting. The Ben minifig is similar to a policeman, a group that Ben likes to collect in Playmobil. The last minifig is Pip who is in an orange construction suit because he like to build things. This minifig also has a determined look on his face, because Pip is a pretty determined person.

We've had a lot of fun playing with the new set of minifigs. I don't know if the Mummy minifig has taken on any storm-troopers yet, but I look forward to hearing about it.
