June is Pride month, so to celebrate it and diversity both in the AFOL community and within the company, LEGO is releasing a very interesting set: 40516 Everyone is Awesome.
Never before has a set included so many monochromatic minifigs (monofigs), so it's a great way to kick-start your collection of them, particularly as many of the elements in it have never been produced until now.

Do we know if the set is exclusive to Lego.com? I suspect they'll fly off the virtual shelves very quickly, and was thinking of maybe going to a nearby store to pick one up?
Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
I'm very delighted with this set, and I look forward to hoarding a bunch of them!
I don't think you're alone. Fairly sure all of the 300+ comments in the announcement and review on the main page were specifically about the bright green 1x2 plate.
one thing is for sure, this is a photogenic set, lovely photos @Huw 😍😍
anyway, MONOFIGS 🥰🥰🎉
On another note, it's looking like this set really made the monofig community pop up. Are there resources about this? Even Huw is mentioning it in his recent Fairy Folk article. @Paperballpark said there are 43 that could be made? I knew of a few manequins and statues, but it's interesting to see that people have actively pursued monofigs.
I also keep a spreadsheet updated with what parts are available, which you can see here.
Great resource as well, your spreadsheet!
