Hello reader, I have a question for you. When is the last time you’ve been on your Animal Crossing island? If it has been months since the last time you saw Tom Nook (the crook), Isabelle, or your furry private island neighbors, I totally won’t judge you. I don’t even want to think about all the weeds growing in my grass or the bugs crawling in my house. Real life kinda takes over, you know? Or maybe you just need some sort of boost to make you want to grab your Switch again. Never, fear the great minds of LEGO are here to do just that. LEGO Animal Crossing sets are officially coming our way for the very first time in 2024!

LEGO Animal Crossing Minifigures
Minifigures are always a big draw for LEGO sets, and the Animal Crossing sets are no different. But which of our favorite Animal Crossing friends will turn into Minifigures in this upcoming release? LEGO will make Isabella, Fauna, Julian, Bunnie, Kapp’n, Marshal, Tom Nook, and Rosie into Animal Crossing Minifigure form. That’s eight minifigures in total that you can collect across these new sets.
In a release Simon Kent, Creative Lead, Design Director at the LEGO Group, noted, “creating the minifigures to make sure they were accurately representing the characters in the video games was very important for us.” And it shows. You can check out these Animal Crossing LEGO Minifigures below.
