I am doing a science project and I need a 50g passenger for a car. I need to know how much a LEGO character weighs!

  • does it need to be the size of a minifig? or could you use a TECHNIC figure instead? I think they're about 50g to 60g...

  • @HorusKol: You're way off, according to bricklink it's around 12.4g. Apr 10, 2017 at 6:28
  • @Henrik - I saw something else on bricklink that said 0.15 lbs - which is about 60g... but not 100% they're talking about the figure, or the figure plus a couple of other bits...

    Just a tip: if you are doing a science project, then you should personally and demonstrably make sure your passenger is exactly 50g. References like "some users at a public forum said so" are considered to be highly unscientific. Get a scale and do some measurements :)

About 3g (2.98g)

enter image description here

Based on a small sample of Minifigure part data provided by Bricklink, a minifigure in it's most basic form (Head, Torso Assembly and Legs Assembley) weighs about 3g.

A small hairpiece or cap will add about 0.3g - 0.4g

Large hairpieces/headgear can add about 0.9g - 1.0g.
