We have worked with Lego to painstakingly collect and catalog almost every minifig ever produced into a photographic timeline. You will be able to see the evolution of the iconic figure starting with the iconic 1970s space, city and castle sets that you can see in our exclusive tour of the secret historic Lego vault. Sensory overload ahead.

Important note: I thought about this timeline would be a good way to illustrate how minifigs have changed through the last three decades. We have finally restored this unique timeline after being lost during Gizmodo's move to the Kinja network. Since so many of you always ask for it, here it is again, in all its glory.

It covers the minifigs till 2008—which leaves lots of room for your own more modern favorites. Help us improve this catalog by adding new ones in the comments.
