Any classic LEGO structure will include the small, blocky LEGO people characteristic of the brand. These miniature figurines, officially known as "minifigs," come in a surprisingly wide variety of popular caricatures. There are pirate minifigs, ninja minifigs, space minifigs, monster minifigs and even minifigs designed to look like famous Hollywood actors. You can try your hand at creating a custom minifig online.

Open your Internet browser and navigate to the Minifig Generator website. Click "Play Now" once the website loads.
Select "Past," "Present" or "Future" next to the head bar to determine the time setting of your minifig's noggin. Clicking each will offer 10 to 12 different options befitting the selected time setting. For instance, clicking "Past" will offer pirate heads, knight heads, wizard heads, cowboy heads and other classic caricatures.
Select "Past," Present" or "Future" next to the torso bar to determine the time setting of your minifig's main body. As before, clicking each will provided a bevy of options pertaining to the selected time period. For instance, clicking "Future" will offer an array of spaceman and superhero body types.
Select "Past," Present" or "Future" next to the leg bar to determine the time setting of your minifig's legs. Most of the legs are simply different colours, but the "Past" option features a few intriguing options including skeleton legs, wizard robes and leafy loincloths.
Look on the right side of the screen to see your customised LEGO minifig. Each time you click a new head, torso or set of legs, the image will adapt to fit your selection.
Select "Random Head," Random Torso" or "Random Legs" to ask the generator to select a body part for you. If you want to leave everything to fate, select "Random Everything."
Click the "Build" icon in the bottom right corner when you are finished. You will be asked to name your minifig, and then you will be presented with an image of your constructed figurine.
