Around 2011 - 2012 LEGO switched from open (blocked) stud heads to closed (recessed) stud heads. More and more people commented on this topic in the guestbook. On this page - with your help - I will try to identify the minifigure variants that exist as a result of this transition. If you have any information on this subject please leave a comment in the guest book or send an email to mail(at)minifgs.nl

Below is a list with all BL references of a SW minifigure head that came both an open blocked stud and a closed recessed stud. New finds of these variants are added to the list (the Mace Windu head for example). Minifigures that probably were released with both head variants are marked with an asterix (*). Why else would there be two head variants on BL and just one minifigure reference...

Website user manumi noted: "Apparently, here in Spain, many figs came with the new closed version."

or: variant confirmed - minifigure(s) released with both an open stud head and a closed stud head
