Microscale LEGO® Get Pretty Small
Also referred to as Miniscale, is a LEGO® building style that involves constructing models at a smaller scale than the standard minifigure scale, which is roughly 1:48. This allows LEGO® builders to create miniature versions of large structures or vehicles, making it possible to fit detailed scenes in a limited space.
The Smallest Minifigures On The Market: Nanofigures
The smallest LEGO® figures are called Nanofigures. These tiny figures were first introduced in the The S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier set in 2015 and later included in the NASA Apollo Saturn V set in 2017. Nanofigures are a great way to populate microscale builds with tiny characters that fit the scale of the construction…but they don’t come cheap!
