A recent study has shown that the faces of Lego characters are expressing a wider array of emotions than they used to, you know, since they used to only be happy. Anger, confusion, deceptively neutral -- all are making appearances.

While "scientists" are worrying about the effect that playing with a bunch of miffed tiny men is going to have on the psyches of children, we just want to know what Lego's going to do next. Since we have no patience, we went ahead and made some potential Lego mini-figures of our own. Because there are only so many professions left before they have to turn to the incredibly mundane.
