Finally, Do you like the LEGO aesthetic of LEGO minifigures having no nose, or do you with LEGO would add more facial detail now that the printing process allows for more details? Would you like LEGO to go the LEGO Friends route and add 3D noses to the minifigs? Let us know in the comments, or hit me up on twitter, @StillSorting.

    Missed one. I don’t know the original minifig, but I remember it from city firefighters.
