A few weeks ago, my husband texted me the images for the new Series 17 LEGO minifigures and asked me to choose which ones I liked most. I chose the chef and the vet almost immediately. My initial thought was to pick the ones that had some unique accessories that my husband didn’t have and could be used later on in future pictures. I wanted characters with unusual outfits or ones that represented some aspect of me or my husband. He’s the big LEGO fan and photographer, but I also enjoy collecting. In fact, when we were still dating, the first few series of these minifigures came out, and we spent a lot of time together, hunched over the displays, trying to feel through the packages for the figures he wanted most for his pictures.
The chef was an easy immediate pick for me. I thought of my husband and how he also enjoys cooking. He’s commented many times that he’s always wanted a chef’s jacket, so here’s a chef’s jacket (and a chef’s hat!)…in LEGO form. The chef also has a whisk, and who doesn’t like a good whisk? Oh, and the pie. You can never have too much pie.
