I recently wrote another list for Topless Robot called “The Greatest LEGO Collectible Minifigures” but I have to warn you that it didn’t go over that well. One reason is that I grouped some of the more similar minifigures that I wanted to include together as individual entries, intending them to be equal. But the editor counted them separately, resulting in the #1 best figure being one I didn’t intend it to be. It just happened to be the last one I wrote about in the group of figures that I thought was the best. The other reason I think the list got panned a bit is because there are so many great Collectible LEGO Minifigures and everyone has their favorites, which aren’t necessarily the same as mine. It still never fails to surprise me how seemingly offended some people get that a given list is different than how they would have written it. Although I did make one of my most epic typos by referring to UFO abductees Betty and Barney Hill as “BENNY and Barney Hill.” :-0 Yes, alien abduction-British comedy mash-up!
