There are so many official Lego Minifigures out there. Thousands and thousands of unique designs. Many of the Minifigs are worth a lot of money, but a few of them stand out. Over at Mental Floss they have compiled a short list of some of the most rare and exclusive Minifigures. Most of them are promotions chase figures associated with certain events. If you happen to have a Red Sox Fan, Cloud City Boba Fett, New York I Love Yoda, International Space Station Alien, or other rare Lego Minifigures, you may have something worth over 500 dollars!

Have you ever wondered how many colors Lego has in its collection? There are probably more then you thought. Jeremy Moody has made it his mission to collect and catalog every released color. Some of these colors go back decades, and are extremely rare.
“Here is my chart of all known named LEGO colors. This started as an attempt to collect colors of 2x4s, and turned into collecting every color in as close as possible to the size and shape of a 2×4. There are some color names LEGO is known to have used, not included in this chart. However, it is unknown what parts or sets were ever made in those colors, or if they were used at all beyond trial pieces.”

Benny played a pivotal role in the Lego Movie, and after retiring in his spaceship (I would like to think) went to celebrate with this Classic Spaceman statue. This little Lego vignette is the creation of Vanjey_Lego. I had no idea that the classic spaceman helmet came in grey, and it turns out to be a really rare piece from 1982! Thats not the only rare piece on display here…
