The anatomy of a minifigure.

Minifigures are the small, plastic LEGO people, who populate the Lego worlds. Most Lego sets include some minifigures; Lego has also sold collections of minifigures as separate sets. They are also commonly known as minifigs, mini-figs, or "Lego people". Many of the newest themes such as Space Police and Atlantis, or even the long-lived Star Wars themes have introduced many new minifigures and molds. Their are even rare minigfigures, like the Red Vader or the Golden C3P-O.
