Take a quick look at the evolution of the minifigure face:
Look through hundreds minifigure heads:
Sort out all the printed noses:
Find the only LEGO minifigure heads with printed noses that represent normal, non-mutated/monster real life humans:
- All come from the 1996 and 1997 Cowboys and Indians Western subthemes.
- All 6 minifigure heads with noses also have more detailed eyes with eye whites and pupils.
Issue a warning:
- Do not google “LEGO noses” or you will end up with horrific images and articles about children shoving LEGO into their face:
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.
