Over the Lunar New Year Weekend, LEGO announced at the New York Toy Fair that the 40th Anniversary of the Minifigure will be celebrated with the release of a special “birthday party” themed Collectible Minifigures Series 18. Release date is set to be on the 1st of April 2018 and features many costumed minifigures which are sure to excite the casual and fervent collectible all the same.
