The move is part of an ethnic cleansing campaign that was previously rumoured to be on the Emperor’s wishlist of things to do but for whatever reason the implementation file was left on a shelf somewhere to gather dust.
The campaign is intended to first isolate and then expel or house in ghettos minifigs who migrated to Legoland in the late 2000s. These immigrants, or immifigs as they are colloquially know, are not considered true Legolanders as their original birthplace was not Legoland.In May and June 2008 the Empire saw an estimated 400 Blacktron minifigures migrate to its eastern cities. The then NBO government welcomed them in to solve a recruit shortage in the military and Empire Police.
The Blacktron battalions primarily served in public order policing duties in 2008 and early 2009 but by the end of 2009 were the Empire’s main fighting infantry unit in engagements with the Legoban.
The Foreign Office have stated that foreign interest in the figures should be channeled through them.
