By 2019, Humans Will Be Outnumbered By Lego Minifigs

Illustration for article titled By 2019, Humans Will Be Outnumbered By Lego Minifigs

Since their introduction in 1978, Lego's Minifigs have, um, reproduced at a rapid rate. In fact, the toymaker has been making the little fellas at such a pace that they'll outnumber humans by 2019.

As of 2006, there were 4 billion Minifigs in the world; projecting forward both human and Lego populations suggests that tiny plastic men will outnumber us by 2019. Imagine that: a world where there are more Minifigs than fellow homosapiens. That's our kind of world. [XKCD]
