Overall Editor's Rating

What It Is

The book, LEGO Minifigure Year By Year, A Visual History from Dorling Kindersley, is an illustrated look at the evolution of the LEGO minifigure. The book is filled with big and bright color photographs of more than 2,000 of the most significant, popular, and rare minifigures ever created by LEGO. It features the first LEGO figures from 1974 and takes readers all the way through to the latest figures released at the end of 2013. Year By Year also dedicates a large amount of coverage to licensed properties, including Star Wars and Harry Potter.

Is It Fun?

Year By Year will look just as nice in a child's room as it will on a collector's coffee table. Few people will be able to resist opening it up and flipping through, especially after they see the cover, which has real minifigures built into it.

Who It’s For

This book is a must have for LEGO fans of all ages.

What To Be Aware Of

The pages are filled with fun facts such as, if all the minifigures ever produced formed their own country, their population would be three times larger than the population of China.

The book is written by Gregory Farshtey and Daniel Lipkowitz.
