LEGO Minifigures 40th Anniversary Edition – Series 18 – 17 to collect
2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of LEGO Minifigures and in this special edition Minifigures Series LEGO have brought back one of the first ever Minifigures released 4 decades ago. This minifigure is a re-issue of the original LEGO policeman and is limited to one in every box of 60 making it a special collectors Minifigure. The other big change in this special 40th Anniversary Minifigures series is the Orange base-plate, a welcome change to the standard black LEGO Minifigure base-plates.
