Believe it or not, LEGO wasn’t always just known for plastic bricks. Once upon a time, LEGO toys were made of wood and the new LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure pays tribute to those days.

The seven-inch tall wooden LEGO minifigure is a 5:1 upscaled version of the toy that was first introduced by LEGO in 1978.

The minifigure, which features a wooden body and plastic hands, pays homage to the company’s history when the first LEGO toys were crafted from wood.

The LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure comes packaged in a premium gift box along with LEGO bricks and five ideas on builds to construct with those bricks. It also comes with a booklet featuring the story and history of the minifigure and inspirational ideas for owners to customize it in their own ways.

The LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure will be available starting Nov. 8 for $119.99.
