LEGO Minifigure :: 30th Birthday!

It’s time to bake a birthday cake for… LEGO? The little plastic minifigures turn 30 today! Here’s a party video.

30 years ago LEGO created a little plastic LEGO character and decided to call it a Minifigure. Today, on August 25, 2008, they're 30 years old and there are a bajillion different Minifigures to choose from! You can find everybody from Darth Vader to Indiana Jones, SpongeBob SquarePants, race car drivers and even anime-style mech pilots as one of these plastic figs. They aren't as big as Bionicles, but they still manage to be cool - even though they're almost as old as your parents.

LEGO Party Time!

To celebrate their birthday, the LEGO folks, put together a video and a website. Check it out below and don't forget your 3D glasses!
