Microfigures are a smaller type of minifigure used mainly in the LEGO Games theme. Being only two bricks tall and 1x1 at the base, they allow for game boards to be smaller than otherwise. Most microfigures are original, though some are based on existing minifigure characters such as Harry Potter and Ninjago ninja. They are used in almost every LEGO game.
Microfigures are a single piece sculpted to feature a head, a torso, and a pair of legs, each section being about a third of the total height. The head features a single stud on the top. The microfigures arms are much like the LEGOLAND Minifigures, depicting their hands in their pockets. They cannot carry accessories, and are completely inflexible.
Most microfigures are unique to the game they appear in, although some are repeated in later titles. The four explorers from Ramses Pyramid returned in Orient Bazaar (with updated printing), while Ramses himself was repeated in Ramses Return. The 2011 set LEGO Champion set features microfigures drawn from a large number of existing LEGO Games, with the exception of the two female figures and the golden minifigure statue. The 2012 set Mini-Taurus used the same figures from Minotaurus with updated designs.
The microfigure mould has also been used in sets for decorative purposes. For example, in 9472 Attack on Weathertop and 9526 Palpatine's Arrest. They are used as small statues, the same design is used in one of the LEGO games itself, 3858 Waldurk Forest.
