Just found it at target--- 32.00 (cover price 40.00)

The Lego Minifigure: Year By Year.. Just goes through the history and engineering behind the minifigure-- with tons of photos from all the sets...

3 Minifigures included on the cover-- vintage Lego dude, Stormtrooper and a Robber mini figure.

More interested in the info than the minis. Is it comprehensive?

My son and I sat down with that book at B & N the other day and it is a really great resource.

Basically an encyclopedia of just Lego Minifigures and yes, it is broken down Year by Year as well as themes within that year.

Tons of the standard DK sidebar info and callouts as well.

PLUS 3 minifigs in the cover (offering a nice cross sample of minifig history) and this is already purchased and set aside as a Christmas gift for my son.

Im still slowly going through it -- it's nice "office" reading material :wink:

Some of them are just goofy facts, and if you have every other DK lego book there is repeat info. But it really does go into more detail on the generic lego days that no one talks about.

Not as much behind the scenes info-- but it really feels like an evolutionary guide of lego minifigure history.

Hey I still remember how stoked I was when the yellow astronauts first appeared to go along with the traditional red and white ones.

I also remember thinking that they had gone too far once they added BOTH blue and black ones! :lol:

I remember having a few of the proto minifigs that didn't have moving arms or legs. And I remember having the larger more heavily articulated "family" figures as well.

Can't believe I forgot about all of that until I started flipping through the book.

Ah, memories.
