Get ready for X-Mas, because this season is going to be deliciously deadly.
Lego minifigures are completely modular. You can change and swap their heads, torsos and legs. To go a little bit further, with a little force you can even swap their arms, individual legs, and hands. Meaning that with just a few minifigures you can combine all the various pieces into many different characters. The only limitation is your imagination.
The gingerbread man is part of the recently released Minifigures Series 11: http://everydaybricks.com/lego-minifigures-series-11-reviewed-by-whitefang-eurobricks/
