I was all set to get snug into bed and rested for a brand new week, when a photo was sent to me that I just knew I wasn’t going to be able to sleep without posting and talking about. We’ve known it was coming for quite some time, but finally–finally–the LEGO Disney Minifigures Series has been revealed, including Mickey Mouse, Stitch, Maleficent and more!
Well, there have been a few changes to the proposed list of minifigs in the wave, but I’m happy to say that we will officially be getting a record eighteen Minifigures in LEGO Disney Minifigures Series 1!
The series will contain the following characters, as shown in the pamphlet image above:
- Alice (in Wonderland)
- Buzz Lightyear
- Donald Duck
- Daisy Duck
- Captain Hook
- Cheshire Cat
- Mr. Incredible
- Toy Story Alien
- Minnie Mouse
- Mickey Mouse
- Peter Pan
The biggest change between the original reported list of characters going around and the actual minifigs in this assortment is the loss of Tarzan & Jane and the five Inside Out emotions. While I’m deeply saddened to see that the Inside Out emotions didn’t make the cut, there’s no denying that this is a series where every character is an absolutely iconic one!
And hey, keep hope, Inside Out and Tarzan fans! While there’s nothing on the catalog image above that specifically denotes this as being “Series 1” of a LEGO Disney Minifigure series, I think we can safely assume that there will be at least one other series based off of the omission of certain key characters from this lineup such as Goofy and Pluto.
Now, if you’re having a little bit of deja vu looking at those minifigs, it may be because two of them are repeats of previously-released minifigures. Both the Buzz Lightyear minifigure and the Toy Story Alien minifigure were previously released as part of the popular LEGO Toy Story theme several years ago.
This minifigures series is expected to be released in May/June 2016, so we should be seeing them in just a few months. Start saving up your pennies (okay, dollar) now!

What do you think of the Disney LEGO Minifigures Series, brick fans? Are you dead set on owning any (or all!) of the figures in this series, or were you hoping for a different lineup for this first wave of Disney Minifigures (or perhaps no LEGO Disney minifigs at all)?
