A Game About Collecting LEGO Figures Sounds Better Than The Real Thing


Collecting real life LEGO figures involves tons of money, trips to K-Mart, and many, many duplicates. I think I prefer LEGO Minifigures Online‘s take on the hobby.

You’re still opening bags in Funcom’s upcoming MMO, slated for a summer 2004, but these bags feature fully-playable characters, each with their own stats and special powers. You can battle with them, level them up, customise them and share them without every leaving your comfy chair or stepping on errant pieces.

Plus we don’t have to wait until this summer to start collecting. Funcom launched the LEGO Minifigures Online website today, peppered with collectible stars visitors can collect to earn levels and unlock new figures in the gallery. Consider it an MMO pre-game show.

  • if you’re willing to spend 5 minutes, you can feel the ‘main part’ of many mini-figs in the bag to avoid most doubles or get a specific fig. For example. the soldier above would be identifiable by it’s gun and possibly the hair. that said, sometimes you need to be lucky (i spent a while looking for a Mr Gold)

      • My inner child is pestering my outer adult to find out what it’s like because he can’t wait to play it when he grows up.

  • Looks like the site has enough stars to get to Level 9, but you unlock an exclusive in-game minifig at Level 30. Am I missing a bunch of stars, or does everyone else finish at 9, too?
