The Return of Minifig Monday #1

It’s been a while, but Minifig Monday has returned to The Triangular Room at last! I’m going to kick things off with the genie minifigure from series 6. He’s among my favourite ‘supernatural’ minifigs, with his awesome turban and ‘tail’. I’m particularly looking forward to the release of the new female genie minifigure in series 12, which should be out next month.

001-GenieMinifig Monday will be a weekly post in which I feature a random LEGO minifigure from my personal collection. I have a LOT of minifigures, so I hope to keep going for a while 🙂 Unless otherwise stated, all minifigs have been photographed by me. Occasionally I might replace a Minifig Monday with a look at a full LEGO set instead.

    Really like this minifig as well, pity I only started collecting from series 10 🙁
    The female genie will definitely go well with this.

    What camera do you use to take your photos?

      Most of my minifig photos are taken using my hubby’s Canon 1000D, tripod and a light tent. My outdoor and set shots are usually taken with my iPhone 4 and the Camera+ app.

    Wow his camera is quite impressive with the close up shots!!
    I’ve tried taking a few close up shots with my iPhone as well but it’s no where near as clear as this!!

    Think it’s time I invest in a Canon:)!!

      Lighting is a huge factor, as well as a good lens – something that can’t be easily replicated on an iPhone unfortunately – especially for small things like minifigs – I have to mount the camera on a tripod to get good shots. I can definitely recommend Canon – the one we have is the entry level one and it’s held up really well for the last 4 or so years. It’s more the lens, tripod and lights that start costing a lot!
