Lego News: Minifigures & Dinosaurs!

The Toy Chronicle are lovers of Lego, so we thought we’d share a few tidbits of news we spotted recently. Firstly, Minifigures! There are two new  series of Minifigures arriving in stores soon. The first to arrive is Series 13, due this month, and the line-up is pretty ace:

There are so many great accessories in this series; the glorious royal beard for a start. Plus, any set where there’s a guy in a hot dog suit and a Lady dressed as a unicorn has to be a winner.

The next Minifigures to arrive will be Series 2 of The Simpsons, due in May. Here are a few development shots of Groundskeeper Willie and Dr. Hibbert:
