OYO’s line of ‘Original Six’ NHL mini-figures are all kinds of LEGO-like awesomeness (photos)


OYO, which for lack of a better way to put it, can be considered the Sports World LEGO. But what OYO lacks in name-brand notoriety the company more than makes up for with an exclusive deals with several of the prominent pro sports leagues, including the National Hockey League.

Currently available for sale for $12.99 a pop are “minifigures” that pay tribute to “The Original Six,” the first batch of teams that started the NHL, which conveniently — given the moniker — totaled six teams.

So, be sure to check out all the available minifigures starring players from the Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers and Boston Bruins.

Some of the stars featured in the “Original Six” rollout include Habs defenseman P.K. Subban, Blackhawks party-hearty winger Patrick Kane and Red Wings strangely mustachioed winger Henrik Zetterberg, all which are featured below:

Many, many more are available and OYO’s site notes that soon players from every NHL team will be available. Can’t wait. As a LEGO nerd — yes, I’ve built the several-thousand-piece Imperial Destroyer and Death Star, what of it? — I look forward to incorporating these little guys into playtime.
