For you who click into this article, we won’t spend time introducing the background of the Netflix survival drama Squid Game. Various unknown brands in China had capitalized the popularity of the show and made LEGO compatible minifigures based on characters in Squid Game. Due to the nature of the drama, it’s impossible for LEGO to release figures on this IP. At the point of writing, at least a dozen brands had released sets and figures on the show.There are so many of them and we purchased couple of them to take a look. The photos in this reviews are courtesy of CK and dracos. You may order Squid Game minifigures from Aliexpress.
