wheelchair-lego-minifigLegos certainly evoke a sense of wonder, and for those who have the patience and creativity, you can check out how 18,000 pieces of Lego were required to recreate the Arkham Asylum, complete with accompanying LED lights to boot. Well, this time around it seems that Lego has broken through yet another brick wall, pardon the pun, by showing off their very first minifigure in a wheelchair.

It looks like after 84 long years, Lego has finally come up with a minifigure that has an interesting body. It is at the Nuremburg and London toy fairs this week that Lego showed off its very first adult minifigure in a wheelchair. This is not the first of its kind, however, as a similar minifigure was promoted in July last year but that saw a senior citizen in a wheelchair – which upset certain disability advocates.

This new minifigure happens to be younger and hipper in nature, and he sure as heck looks as though he feels that everything is awesome in life, never mind the fact that he remains seated in a wheelchair. This particular minifigure is part of a set with an ice-cream vendor, cyclist and picnickers who frolic in a park. What do you think is the next frontier for Lego minifigures?
