I was wondering if there were any African American LEGO minifigures besides the ones from the sports basketball series... I got a brown head from a LEGO Stormtrooper set instead of a black one. I then painted it. Do any other sets have them?

I know this is an old question, but it's still a problem that Lego, inc. has (it seems like Lego's official position is that lego minifigs are non-racial - but they pretty obviously read as european or white to most people) -- interestingly Lego Duplo does not agree at all: This is something I don't get. It bugs me as we've been transitioning our son to "little legos" and suddenly the worlds he has to build seem mono-cultural, un-diverse, and also a bit of a sausage party (he's gotten 6 or 7 sets, totalling about 20 minif – Peter Hanley Dec 28 '15 at 5:27

There are a few on Bricklink, if you search by part colour:











And the standard smiley is also available.

If you search for the older Brown colour (instead of the current Reddish Brown) you find that there are basically only the very rare Lando head, as well as the old NBA heads.

nice search idea – Joubarc Nov 8 '12 at 9:18

Minifigs from licensed sets are made to look like their license counterparts, so there are some there, most notably Star Wars Mace Windu and Lando Calrissian which have both been made in 4 different versions.

There's also one in Prince of Persia: Seso, and maybe you can count the gunner zombie from Pirates of the Carribean.

As for non-licensed sets, I don't see any other than the NBA ones.

Technically the NBA ones were licensed ;) – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Oct 15 '12 at 11:09
Color me wrong on that one – Joubarc Oct 15 '12 at 11:51
