I want to make a manga. The complex story uses characters from toys that I played with as a child. These characters were Legos and not rendered in 2D.

And, I mixed some parts of their body so they are different. I drew them as how they would look in the manga, does it invoke copyright? OH AND this is how they originally look like from lego https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8MKx1yPjzU&list=PLCiI9BOkZ2QejozzUWfS9TY9T7U4n-_7j

    Please be a little more explicit about what the question is. Just because the characters slightly resemble the lego toys you had as a child doesn't infringe any copyright I'm aware of.

    Would this question be better suited for the blocks SE (including legos) or Anime and Manga SE site(s) than writing SE?

As I see it, you have been inspired by the original characters and toys to create something uniquely your own. In my opinion that is not copyright infringement but part of the normal creative process.
