This was followed in August 2010 by Series 2 details can be seen on my Lego Collectible Minifigure Series 2 hub.
Over the years the Lego minifigures have been a very collectable item as part of the Lego sets and whole communities and websites, such as the Minifig Customisation Network, have been created catering to this demand and showcasing customisations of minifigures to produce new figures. So basically Lego is catering a market that has grown up organically. Lego have truly embraced the collectable audeince marketing these minifigures like trading cards etc by selling these minifigures in polybags that cannot be seen through so you don't know who you are buying. They'll also come with their own special accessories, display plate and collector’s leaflet.
Amazon and Ebay are great sources for new Lego Minifigure sets and they can be at extremely reasonable prices, Ebay also gives you a huge variety of already opened minifigures to choose from as well as allowing you to still find items that are no longer available.

The Hula Dancer Minifigure comes in a Grass Skirt with black hair with a flower to the side. She has a pair of Maracas to shake.
There’s just something about being out in the sun that makes the Hula Dancer want to dance. She knows dozens of different hula dances in both traditional and modern styles, and she loves to perform them, no matter whether she’s in front of an audience or all on her own.
There’s only one thing that she likes better than dancing, and that’s teaching other people to dance. If there’s a big crowd around on a bright day, you can bet that the Hula Dancer is in the middle of it all, getting everybody to sing, play instruments and dance as long as the sun is in the sky!

The Tribal Chief Minifigure comes with a feathered headdress, and a spear with a brown handle. He also comes with a black stand for him to stand on and he also has a green spear.
The Tribal Chief lives for adventure. If there’s a mountain, he’ll climb it. If there’s a river, he’ll swim it. If there’s a desert, he’ll pack his bags and cross it, just because he can. All he needs is the great outdoors and an exciting challenge, and he’ll be right there, daring it all and trying to get everyone he knows to join in on the fun.
As he sees it, his mission in life is to go everywhere and do everything the wide world has to offer, but the best part is that even when he’s done everything he can think of doing, he knows that there will still be more adventures waiting just around the corner.

The Samurai Warrior Minifigure comes in full Samurai armour with helmet and large Samurai sword.
The Samurai Warrior is a legendary champion, famous for both his skill with the sword and his deep sense of honor. He will never break a promise or refuse to help a stranger in need, and the only reward he ever accepts for his noble deeds is a nice cup of hot tea afterwards.
The Samurai Warrior’s only problem is that he’s so extremely serious all the time. You can try telling him a joke, showing him a funny picture or even tickling him, but he’ll never even crack a smile. It’s rumored that he once laughed at one of the Circus Clown’s gags, but if you ask him, he’ll absolutely deny it.

The Tennis Player Minifigure is a very attractive female tennis player in full tennis gear with tennis racquet.
The Tennis Player trains hard to be the very best at the game, and she's got the athletic skills to show for it. Wherever the ball goes on the court, she's already there, ready to send it flying right back where it came from with a lightning-quick, precisely-aimed swing of her gleaming tennis racket.
And what a racket it is! Forged by a master racket-smith from the metal
of a rare meteorite alloy, it's lightweight, perfectly balanced and
almost indestructible. The Tennis Player never goes anywhere without it,
and she's sure that with her lucky racket in her hand, she'll never
lose a match.

The Sumo Wrestler Minifigure comes in his full Sumo Nappy wrestling gear and is shown holding his Copper Sumo trophy.
The Sumo Wrestler has dedicated his life to the ancient art of sumo. He has earned the nickname “The Immovable Object” for his ability to stand perfectly still while his opponent tries to push him over or out of the sumo ring. He’s recognized wherever he goes, and is always happy to stop and sign autographs for his many fans.
He may be very big and very strong, but the Sumo Wrestler is also extremely health-conscious. He watches his calories, makes sure to get plenty of fiber in his meals, and always finishes his vegetables. Like he says, you can’t get big and strong without taking good care of yourself.

The Baseball Player Minifigure comes in his full Baseball team uniform complete with his baseball cap and baseball bat. The team the Baseball Player plays for is called the "Clutchers," which is most likley a reference to the hand design of the Minifigures.
To the Baseball Player, nothing is as important as good teamwork. He memorizes all of his team’s game strategies, pays close attention to the coach’s signals, and does his best to help win no matter what position he’s playing. It’s not about personal fame or the number of home runs he hits – it’s about everybody having a good time on the field, and giving the crowd in the stands a terrific game to watch.
The Baseball Player isn’t just a professional athlete; he’s a big fan of the sport, too. He has an ever-growing collection of baseball memorabilia, from Bob Battingsley’s original rookie card to the signed bat of the world-famous “Brick” Ruth himself. But his top favorite is his mint-in-package collection of historic baseball stadium hot dogs. He’s almost got the complete set.

The Fisherman Minifigure comes is a real old crusty sea-dog. He comes in a blue hat and a long white beard and has long orange waders. He also has a fishing rod and a fish.
The Fisherman has sailed on every ocean, river, lake and stream in the world, and he has a story for each one. He can tell you all about the time he caught an entire school of flying fish with a butterfly net, was shipwrecked by a typhoon and escaped with the help of a friendly whale, or hooked a giant squid with nothing more than a fishing rod and an old rubber boot for bait.
Of course, no one believes these obvious tall tales, which makes the Fisherman a little cranky, because every single one of them is absolutely true. It’s not his fault that he had to throw his catch back because it wasn’t giant squid season yet, or that the batteries in his camera died that time he caught a sea serpent off the coast of Greenland. One day he’ll bring back proof, and then everyone will finally believe his stories.

The Elf Minifigure looks very reminiscent of Legolas from the Lord of the Rings. He has a bow, a shield, and a cape. The shield has a stag-head design on it and his armour is of the same emerald green color. The bow is about as tall as the Elf and uses a design known as a recurve bow, which adds power to the shot.
Hailing from deep within the mystical forests of the Elflands, north of the great Western Kingdom, the Elf is a skilled master of the longbow and a wilderness scout without equal. He can walk over dried leaves and brittle twigs without ever making a sound, leap effortlessly through the tall treetops, and track a troll raiding party for days with no rest.
You may have heard that the Elves are a mysterious and secretive people, but in fact they’ll be happy to tell you all about their musical artistry with the harp and panpipes, their sworn friendship to the beasts of the woods, and their quest to rescue the enchanted Golden Goblet from the cavern of the Emerald Dragon. And then they’ll break out the epic poetry.The Elf can be bought from Amazon by using the link below or alternatively from Ebay by using the links to the right.

The Rapper Minifigure comes with a boombox, a golden microphone, and a new baseball cap. His teeth are also gold and he has white sunglasses on.
The Rapper is a genius master of rhyming. He’s come up with rhymes for tricky words like “tugboat,” “larynx” and “zookeeper,” and he once even won a prize for finding a rhyme for “orange”.
He may not be a huge music celebrity yet, but the Rapper won’t give up until he’s made all of his dreams of success a reality. And as long as he never gets stumped on a rhyme, he’s sure to make it happen someday soon.

The Space Alien Minifigure has a lime green Squidman head, a gold Spaceman gun and purple clothing.
Nobody knows where the Space Alien came from or how it got here. It just showed up one day with a map of the planet and an Alien-to-Human dictionary, but neither one works very well. The map puts Washington D.C. in the middle of France, and the dictionary lists cows as a type of locomotive.
The Space Alien wants to conquer the planet, but it keeps getting sidetracked by interesting tourist attractions, so it hasn’t really gotten around to the whole taking-over-the-world thing yet. It’s also not sure what to do with the Earth once it’s been conquered, but it’s pretty sure that whatever it is, it’ll be totally awesome.The Space Alien can be bought from Amazon by using the link below or alternatively from Ebay by using the links to the right.
Gorilla Suit Guy
The Gorilla Suit Guy Minifigure looks just like a Gorilla. He has mask head piece and a banana. He also has black hands and a grey and black torso with black legs and a black stand for him to stand on.
The Gorilla Suit Guy is a mystery. Who is he? Why is he wearing that suit? Does he think he’s an actual gorilla, or did he get lost on his way to a costume party? He certainly acts like the real thing, or at least like someone who’s watched a lot of old movies and TV shows and thinks that’s how a gorilla should act. And he sure is wild about bananas.
The Gorilla Suit Guy could turn up anywhere. In the park, at the beach, hanging out in a store window or jumping up and down on a trampoline, he tends to pop up in the most surprising and unlikely of places. And while he may not be a real gorilla, somehow no one ever wants to be the one to tell him that.

Race Car Driver
The Race Car Driver Minifigure has blonde hair and red helmet and races for the Octan Racing Team.
Years ago, the Race Car Driver met a mysterious man with a robot monkey who told him that he would be compelled to go faster and faster all his life. And it was true: from tricycle races to soapbox derbies, he has always been happiest when moving as fast as safety and the laws of physics will allow.
As soon as he was old enough to enter competitions, he was off and racing, constantly tweaking, modifying and tuning up his cars for more and more speed and power. Now that he’s become a professional driver, he can finally do what he’s always dreamed of doing: tour the world’s racetracks in one of the fastest things on wheels.

The Mummy Minifigure has a head which is mostly covered but you can see part of his head, which is green. His body and his legs are covered, and his hands are white. His eyes are yellow-green in colour with white pupils.
The Mummy’s favorite thing to do is put ancient mummy curses on people. He just loves it when you wake up with slimy frogs in your bed, or suddenly find your shoelaces tied together, or have your toast always fall on the floor with the butter-side down.
But the Mummy doesn’t really mean any harm, and he’d be surprised if he ever found out that people thought he was being mean to them. As far as he knows, putting curses on people is just what mummies are supposed to do.

The Snowboarder Minifigure is a real Snow-Bunny. She has a helmet with goggles and a brand new snowboard.
When it’s freezing cold outside and everyone else’s teeth are chattering, the Snowboarder feels right at home. With nerves of steel, she’ll brave the steepest slopes and the wildest jumps, confident that as long as there’s snow on the ground, she can do anything. But as soon as the weather turns warmer and the snow starts to melt, she’s out of there and heading wherever it’s chillier.
The Snowboarder doesn’t like to be anywhere that’s even a little bit hot. She eats ice cream in the winter and volunteers at the aquarium’s penguin pool in the summer. And what she likes to do most of all is head up a snow-covered mountain with her beloved board and have an icy good time in the cold.

The Space Villain Minifigure has one robotic arm and one robotic leg.
As a member of a shadowy criminal organization feared throughout the seven galaxies, the Space Villain really knows his outer space bad-guy stuff. He can hotwire a rocket neutron drive in zero-G, melt through solid plasmodic hypersteel with his nova-ray blaster, and sneak past a FuturonCorp security-bot in under 3.6 quarkoids, all while blindfolded.
Of course, full-time space villainy isn’t easy. Over the stellar cycles, the Space Villain has lost an eye in a warpship chase over Spyrius IV, misplaced a leg in the meteor mines of the Insectoid hivefleet, and he thinks his right arm might be somewhere at the other end of a black hole. Still, he wouldn’t give up his job for all the quasar rubies in the M-Tron Nebula...which just so happen to be the very next thing he’s planning to steal.

The Lego Pilot Minifigure comes in full WW1 Biggles uniform. He has white hair, a moustache, a brown pilot suit, a pilot helmet, and a brown backpack.
In his day, the Pilot has flown just about everything with wings. Biplanes, triplanes, jetplanes, and seaplanes: he’s piloted them all through every kind of wind and weather, and he’s had all kinds of incredible experiences along the way. He’s discovered long-lost mountaintop civilizations, battled sabotaging gremlins at 20,000 feet, and once he even flew a rocket to Mars to stop an invasion of water-stealing Moon Men.
Yes, the Pilot has led a colorful and exciting life indeed. He’s long-since lost track of how many years he’s been flying, although he definitely gave the Wright brothers some helpful advice at Kitty Hawk in Nineteen-Ought-Three. And if you even think of suggesting retirement, he’ll just chuckle at you with a wink of his eye and a twirl of his elegant moustache, and start the propeller spinning for his next grand flight.
