Thanks to LEGO Taiwan, we now have a definitive list of minifigures that represents the twelve different animals of the Chinese zodiac.

While some are already existing LEGO Minifigure Mascots like the Pig, Monkey, Rooster, Horse, Dragon, Rabbit and Tiger, others seem to be cobbled together from other minifigure parts.
The Goat is actually the torso and leg assembly of the Unicorn Girl and the hair piece is a recoloured element from the Satyr.
The LEGO Chinese Zodiac Snake has a hairpiece from the Lasha minifigure of the Ninjago line although
I’m not too sure where the torso is from. Same goes for the hair piece for the LEGO Chinese Minifigure Ox.
If anyone has an idea on where they came from, do drop a comment below!
