Here are the first official look at the upcoming LEGO Minifigures Series 21!
To see more, read my review of LEGO Minifigures Series 21!
Notice anything different? We’re only getting 12 minifigures in one complete set now, which is a massive, massive change to LEGO’s Collectible Minifigures series.
The 21st series of LEGO’s beloved blind bag series will be available some time in January 2021.
According to Brickset, they’ll come in boxes of 36 and 72 with 3 and 6 complete sets in each, which suggests no chase, or rare minifigures which is a really nice development.
Let’s take a look at the new characters from Series 21!
The Dolphin Trainer/Surfer Girl is pretty neat, and the print on her torso is giving off some heavy Paradisa vibes. I’m also excited to get a non-Friends dolphin!
The Carnival Singer is also really neat – I love her ornate feathery hairpiece and the heavy makeup on her face, which is going to be perfect for fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race!
The Girl Pilot/Plane Enthusiast is all sorts of cute, and the Plane Suit is a really cool new piece too.
This is totally not Tom Hanks from Castaway but a generic Desert Island Survivor minifigure. Shame they didn’t include a volleyball, which probably would’ve been too on the nose but that new Hermit Crab piece is awesome! Probably my favourite new element introduced in this series!
Fans of LEGO Fantasy are going to be delighted with the addition of the female Centaur, or Centauresses if you want to get technical. It’s going to be a cheap and accessible way to build an army of these, and I have no doubt that she’ll be the most popular minifigure in series 21.
The Beekeeper minifigure is awesome as well – an occupation that I’m surprised took LEGO so long to produce. Really love the honeycomb printed tile – I can imagine using a ton of these for a backdrop or to re-enact your favourite scenes from The Bee Movie.
The Ladybug Costume Girl is a brilliant new addition to LEGO’s Animal Costume Series. The printed ladybug tile is so cute, and I can’t wait to see what her back looks like!
Pug fans are going to be delighted by the ultra cute Pug Suit Boy, complete with a teal bone!
Lastly, we have an Aztec Jaguar Warrior minifigure, which is giving off heavy Apocalypto vibes. His serrated sword, printed shield and ornate helmet just look incredible, and I can see this being another fan-favourite.
Great to see LEGO dip into Meso-American heritage and history for inspiration!
The Space Riot Police is on-hand to quell any nasty uprisings or political protests in space. Do all Blacktrons matter? The printed Riot Shield is nice, and so is the Classic Space logo on his armour.
The Violinist minifigure is really cute, and I love the great new fiddle accessory included. Look a little close, and you’ll notice that this young virtuoso is also a Blacktron fan!
Lastly, we have an Alien Prisoner, probably on the run from the Space Riot Police. He has an interesting new unique head but otherwise, seems a little plain.
As always, I’m always very excited about a new core LEGO Minifigures series, although I’m in two minds about the smaller collection size.
On one hand, I do like the equal distribution across boxes and no rare/chase minifigures caused by artificial scarcity, and with only 12 minifigs to collect, will be much easier on the wallet.
On the other hand, it just doesn’t feel right not to have 16 minifigures, and for longtime collectors, will probably throw a few display setups off.
What do you think of LEGO’s Series 21 minifigures? Let me know in the comments which characters you’re most excited for!
Nice pieces overall
I can’t wait for the Pug! even just the torso is great.
Same here! Can’t wait to see the rest of the series in more detail!
Samuel Foresta says
I want the space police and aztec warriors the most!
“Do all Blacktrons matter?” Are you an idiot?
Personally, I’m more of a Blacktron 1 kinda guy.
Sorry if that offended – it was a very tongue in cheek reference to how bad the optics were to release a Police minifigure with a riot shield in 2020. I understand how insensitive that phrase could’ve come across, but there was no ill intention.
Don’t sweat it Jay. There seems to be a even finer line these days between people having to be over sensitive to people that obviously have sensitivity issues. You’re not the problem! Keep up the good work!
Don’t worry about it Jay.
It appears the bar for Steve being triggered is very, very low. Not to mention that Steve cannot make a point without having to resort to name calling.
So that says more about Steve than anything else.
I’m sure all normal, reasonable, people of all shapes, sizes, and colors were amused by your tongue in cheek comment.
But these are not normal times. Sigh. Even people like Steve somehow find it okay to politicize Lego.

I really do hope that the beekeeper and the dolphin trainer have back torso printing and the little orange crab is one piece and not a couple of little ones
I think MOST collectible minifigures should have back-prints – the level and quality of printing in the series is top-notch.
Milo c I’m afraid the hermit crab looks like it is going to be a small crab piece with a stud and small 1×1 rounded cone piece on top
Yup, you can see more upclose photos of the Hermit crab im my review here: https://jaysbrickblog.com/reviews/lego-collectible-minifigures-series-21/#shipwrecksurvivor
It may be a smaller series but it is an impressive one! Super excited for the female centaur, the hermit crab, and the lady buy gal. Two critter costumed minifigures in one series is a treat!
Now all LEGO needs is an Entomologist character, which I’m surprised they haven’t done yet!
Mark P says
Very cool! I don’t collect these series-es, though I have picked up quite a few over the years. Usually there’s one or two from each series that I must get, so just jump on eBay and grab it. This time though, there’s 9 I want! Almost cheaper to just buy a whole box.
Time to dive straight in and get a whole box! Its going to be an expensive one with all the Centaurs to amass!
James Wynne says
I only started collecting these collectable minifigure this year (season 20) but at first glance these look even more collectable. Wonderful designs and most certainly an eclectic collection! Thank you Jay for this article.
Never too late to get into LEGO minifigures, and yes, LEGO have generally been improving the quality and variety of minifigures with each series!
