LEGO has released many festive Christmas-themed sets over the year and with that have come many different Santa Claus minifigures. Now, this is not a look at every Santa minifigure. The first Santa Claus minifigure came in a polybag set in 1995
You’ll notice that he’s a bit more simplified compared to the minifigure I opened with. Still, not a bad start. As I mentioned LEGO has used Santa quite a bit and not just for sets. You can find him as a keychain, which was my very first LEGO Christmas ornament
There is also this wonderful snowglobe that I am more than happy to own.
Now, a few years later I’d get an actual LEGO snowglobe.
Now, there have been quite a few other sets including this yea’s Santa’s Visit.
One of the funniest Santa’s LEGO has released is the one of him taking a shower. And the Santa’s Visit set is the first one to included a printed beard piece
Something about this is just funny and rather cute. Now something I didn’t know before writing this blog is Santa has appeared in some of the LEGO videogames as an unlockable character such as LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy
While not playable, a Santa minifigure can be seen running around in the Shazam DLC for LEGO DC Super-Villains And Santa is even seen in the LEGO TV show, LEGO City Adventures where he’s arrested for breaking and entering and then gets help from a cop (bleh) to save Christmas.
Something else really cool is kids can meet minifigure Santa at the Legoland parks and even his workshop has a LEGO feel.
I know that this was a bit short and not thorough but it was fun sharing this look at the various ways that LEGO has depicted Santa Claus.
