I love Lego mini-figures. Absolutely love them. Like most people, I constantly played with Lego when I was a child. With the possible exception of Star Wars and Transformers it was the most enduring plaything of my childhood. I rediscovered Lego briefly when I left college and started worked with children – what else was I going to get them to do? And then they lay in abeyance in my mind, their brickish possibilities building beneath the surface. I don’t know what happened after that – it may just have been the release of some spectacular new range, but Lego was back in my life.
