Cheerleaders! Vampires! Warriors! Space Aliens! All of these characters and 208-pages more have been packed into this book. Separated into series groups of 10, each segment features a wide variety of figurines, their character biographies, and fun facts that led to their production. Kids will be fascinated to find that each figurine has been inspired by an actual creature, person, or symbol from the real world. It's also amazing (and yet, unsurprising) to discover that the top-selling mini-figures are Santa, Pirate Captain, Clockwork Robot, and Daredevil.
