“Me build, therefore me am!”

This would-be inventor from the prehistoric past is always tinkering with sticks, rocks and the occasional bricks he finds lying around, trying to invent something new. Of course, everything he comes up with has already been invented – he’s a Caveman with a tiny little brain, after all – but that doesn’t stop him from trying. He never gets jokes and usually needs things explained to him with gestures and pictures…and even then, he gets it wrong most of the time.

The Caveman is very strong and always hungry. If something looks like it might be food, he’ll try to take a bite, and if it runs away, he’ll lift his club up above his head and chase it down. Not a lot of people know it, but he’s also an excellent artist who can create incredible landscapes and murals using only the simplest of tools!

Notes

  • Parts of this minifigure appeared in the Build-a-Minifigure bins at LEGO Stores.

  • The Caveman’s proudest accomplishment was inventing the wheel. He was very sad when he found out someone else did it first.
  • The Caveman sometimes falls asleep at the natural history museum and wakes up on display.
  • The Caveman appears to be based off pop culture depictions of early people, similar to the Gorilla Suit Guy, who acts more like a gorilla in early film than a real gorilla.
