Friends figures weren’t the first!

I managed to get hold of a Jack Stone figure recently.  Unlike other minifigures, the Jack Stone figure was a release by LEGO around 2001-2003 – and I think the precursor for the technic figure in that it is partially articulate but nothing comes apart – it’s all fixed as a one piece figure (at least the Friends characters have some adaptability).


Several years on, it does look like the mini-doll (the term for the Friends figures) are going to stay, especially with the release of the Elves theme.  Personally, I still think that LEGO should have just made more sets that interact closely with the other City themes, but it’s obviously working well for them – and much as I have my opinions still on the figures, the accessories are quite useful for my purposes…
