What would you like in future mini-figure series

Though we don't cover them in detail on FBTB, we all still love our Castle, Pirates, and Space LEGO too.

Klaus-Dieter over at Eurobricks is spilling beans...

Klaus-Dieter wrote:Hello everybody! :classic:

Sometimes you only have to have much luck. And today I had that much luck since I was allowed to look into the retailer’s catalogue for the first half of 2011.
There even the new City sets were pictured.
I of course thought that you do not want to hear what’s new – but I tell you nevetheless.

Please be aware that I had no chance to take any notes or pics – so there might even be some mistakes.

The minifigures from this series look absolutely amazing! :wub: :wub: :wub:

Minifigure Series 3:
-fisher with hinge and fish
-Ferrari driver (red torso) with helmet
-mummy with pan
-? sumo wrestler/karate guy (yellow torso and pants) with trophy
-? female dancer
-samurai knight with removeable armor and samurai sword
-Hawaii girl (green skirt print) with two green rattles
-baseball player with baseball bat
-elf with bow and big buckler
-Native American chief with lance
-alien with space gun
-? male singer with ? micro and ? recorder
-? doctor/surgeon with suitcase and ?
-gorilla with banana
-snowboarder with snowboard
-???

Sorry for that I don't remember the one remaining minfig.

Let's discuss! :classic:

Btw:
1. Series 3 will already be released in January 2011.
2. There will be a series 4, too, but there were unluckily no pics of it in the retailer's catalogue.
3. Series 4 will be released in April 2011.

Gorilla? Didn't see that coming. Some of the others, though, are rather underwhelming if true. Snowboarder? When we just had a skiier? Ferrari Driver? Male Singer? Dancer? (actually that could be pretty unique if it was a Ballerina with tutu, though I expect it would have been mentioned.)

Out of that assortment, the Gorilla, Mummy, Baseball Player, and Samurai sound most promising. Alien seems kind of an odd choice with the vast assortment of aliens already on the market as part of the Space Police line. Others COULD be cool, or boring depending on exactly how they are handled. I could easily see the Doctor, for example, being very uninspiring (not only because there was a Doctor released not long ago in an inexpensive set, but because it could very easily look like just a male version of the Nurse from Series 1, who already LOOKED like a Doctor. If it is a female doctor, it could be even LESS distinct). And the Chief COULD very easily be almost the same as the Hunter from Series 1 with a different headress.

I would really like to see a Canadian Mountie, a British Royal Palace Guard, Magicians Lovely Assistant (the kind wearing a leotard with feathery plumes sticking up out of everywhere), Frankenstein's Monster (like the one they did for the movie maker theme)... what else... eerrrrrmmm...

Invisible Man(with swappable bandaged head and trans clear head)
Butcher
Bum
Superman-type superhero (like Brickman or something LEGO-pun related)
Mad Scientist with death ray
hipster

I'd like to see them expand upon the Witch from series 2 by doing a "farm girl," a "metallic man," a living scarecrow, and a "man in lion suit" in the future.

Seems like that should be do-able, too. Surely, given the massive numbers of adaptations and interpretations of The Wizard of Oz I have seen in various media, it MUST be in the public domain by now?

Gangsters in a suit w/tommy gun
Werewolf
Egyptains for the Pharaoh to rule
Wizard

I like the previous suggestion of a mountain climber (w/ ice ax, crampons, balaclava hat)
scientist (mad or otherwise)

Heck, if they make Egyptians, they should also make Nefertiti!

Musicians. Preferably a busker (street musician) with a tiny Lego guitar. I'd love that.

Come on...no Peruvian pan flute band member???? Selling CD's????

Yeah, we need more historical figures, Greek (Plato, Aristotle), and Julius Caesar...we have Spartans, but what about the great Romans...I need something to inspire my need for a Coliseum. I know we had vikings, but a Norseman would be great. And how about an African warrior (something to attack the gorram Gorilla, how is that even a minifig is beyond me), or a Mayan?

On an american pop-culture theme, how about a 60's soda pop store 'guy'...the hat alone would be sweet.

I'm not going to post them here to be on the safe side. They're readily available on Eurobricks and Flickr anyway. Gotta' say I'm underwhelmed with the Series 3 offering. The sumo doesn't have a large belly, which could easily have been a shoulder accessory in the vein of the Agents body armor piece. The gorilla looks pretty cool, as do the rapper, hula girl, cyborg, etc... but good number of them are S1 diver-level of lackluster. Ferrari driver? Really? I'm disappointed with this selection, but I'm sure I'll warm up to some of them once I have a few in-hand. We'll see.

Perhaps this thread should be updated to be a series 4 wishlist? Starting off, I bet we get a Frankenstein's monster, werewolf or Creature of the Black Lagoon in Series 4 to round out the monsters.

Looked at the pics and the only figs that I'm really excited about are the Samurai and Elf. The gorilla looks small, wish it was accurately bigger compared to the regular minifigs. Everything else is so-so.

Oh man, I had thought that the alien was an odd choice for this series given the easy availability of aliens in Space Police sets, but I didn't imagine for a second that they would be lame enough to actually just repurpose on the those very Space Police aliens. That is just LAZY.

On the other hand, that beard on the fisherman looks like a new mold, and one that would be perfect for a REAL Santa minifig. So maybe we will see Santa with a decent hat mold and some torso printing, maybe even a sack (rather than the pirate bandana, Dumbledore beard, blank torso one we HAVE seen) in a future series?

I saw the photo over at rebelscum and I must say, I'm pretty excited about this set. The Samurai just looks cool, the longshoremen cracks me up, Legolas (as i'm calling him) is pretty slick, and the Gorilla is the bananas!!!
