Is this the lineup for series 9?

Posted by ,

The Daily Brick has published what it believes is a list of collectable minifigures series 9:

  • Alien Trooper
  • Chicken Suit Guy
  • Maid Marion
  • Heroic Knight
  • Cyclops
  • Mermaid
  • Fortune Teller
  • Dr. Splitz
  • Roller Derby Girl
  • Judge
  • Battle Mech
  • Caesar
  • Downtown Cop
  • Plumber
  • Waiter
  • Hollywood Starlet

As the team over there says, this series appears to have many completely new minifigs, rather then just changed genders. I know someone who will be particularly pleased with the Roller Derby Girl if that turns out to be true!

No more is known about them at the moment other than they are scheduled for release in January and will be in silver packets.

If this IS a possible list, then I'm guessing it's a translation, or someones interpretation of pictures they've seen as 'Maid Marion' is a character name (as well as whatever 'Dr. Splitz' is EDIT: just googled the name... and he's a space monkey...) rather than an archetype eg 'Medieval Damsel'.

Some of them sound a bit uninspiring eg plumber... waiter... judge... But a number in there I've been hoping for, so it all remains to be seen what new parts etc they come with (if the list is true) to make them 'must haves'.

Does anyone else hope that 'Downtown Cop' is a corrupt, chisel-faced guy with three day stubble and an old mac?

Gravatar

The plumber fig should have his trousers hanging low in the back.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Battle Mech just sounds like it will be similar to the Evil/Robot rather than a minifigure in alarge amount of armour.

Gravatar
By in United States,

My sister plays roller derby so that is a must have. Looking forward to seeing if this list is legit.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would still like to see the following:

- Davy Crockett or Daniel Boone
- Various marching band figures
- Accordion player, this could be re-purposed for polka, mariachi, Weird Al.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Not that much of a good lineup to the previous series from 2012. The only one which stands out is the Caesar figure. But otherwise this may just have to be a miss for me.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm thinking that the "Battle Mech" will be a rehash of the Space Marine but without the helmet and hair instead, aswell as different coloured armour :)

Gravatar
By in Norway,

This list seems promising. I am particularly interested in Battle Mech, alien trooper and most importantly - the plumber!!

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

Is Downtop Cop supposed to be a British bobby? We'll see, but I hope so. And Marylin Monroe for Hollywood Starlet ;)
But what are Dr. Splitz and Battle Mech?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Parts swap and you've got yerself a MER-MAID MARION.

Also, plumber, FTW.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Lot of fantasy/historic in this series...so if this is a true list I am on board as the last series was rather boring (duplicates). Bring on the cyclops, though I'd prefer it being the size of the LotR Cave Troll.

Gravatar
By in United States,

They sound really nice: cyclops, caesar, chicken suit guy (has anyone noticed there are a lot of figures that start with 'C'?). Fortune teller, knight and judge sound neat too. What the heck is Dr. Splitz?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This would be an excellent selection by the looks of it I think! Caesar would be amazing!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Like the sound of some of these. The battle mech and cyclops sound good. I liked the minotaur minifigure so hopefully the cyclops will be similar. We may get more mythical monsters in future series, that would be cool. The alien trooper may be a terrible repetition or might have something good like a new head piece.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Really hoping this list is true! Lots of figures I've personally been hoping for. Most looking forward to Mermaid and Maid Marion (I'm guessing she's an archetypal Damsel in Distress), plus Hollywood Starlet, Caesar, Alien Trooper, Fortune Teller and Battle Mech could be cool.

Have no idea what Dr. Splitz could be though...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Heroic Knight (If done properly), Battle Mech and Chicken Suit Guy are my top three. Better not get too excited though as I still haven't completed Series 8!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I have just done some research on Wikipedia and Dr Splitz was a character in Captain Simian & the Space Monkeys (1996 - 1997). I wonder if Lego are going to bring out the same character then?

Dr. Splitz/Splitzy: An orangutan, originally a crazed and teased zoo orangutan, with a split personality, alternating between a formal scientific tone ("Dr. Splitz") and a good-old-boy Southern drawl ("Splitzy"). He was originally picked up from a zoo, where he was kept alone; stories in the show imply that he developed the dual personality to give himself some company. However, the two personalities have taken lives of their own and frequently quarrel: Splitzy seeing Dr. Splitz as a windbag, while Dr. Splitz looks upon Splitzy as uncouth. They also demonstrate differing skill sets at times, with Dr. Splitz excelling in scientific theory while Splitzy specializes in repairing and building the machines Dr. Splitz comes up with. Splitzy's other main job is to manifest and translate Dr. Splitz's scientific jargon into terms more understandable by the other crew members. On one episode, it is shown that he was a science lab monkey, what could explain his split-personality. In this episode is also shown he is afraid of being in cages and that he could be Claustrophobic. This is also shown in the episode where they separated, when Dr. Splitz was shown to be highly uncomfortable trapped in a small room. It is mentioned there that Splitzy manifested while he was in the zoo, so it is possible a combination of the experiments and being alone in the zoo created him.

I like the sound of some of these, especially:-

Maid Marion (would go well with the Castles)
Heroic Knight
Fortune Teller
Judge
Caesar (All we need now is Ancient Egypt Lego sets)
Downtown Cop
Plumber
Waiter

If they look good, I'll buy them.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Sounds like wishful thinking to me.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Usually the minifigures don't have a specific name, but maid Marion, and Ceaser seem to be real/Robin Hood people. Like little red riding hood in series 7 was named grandma visitor.
Also, I reckon the judge will have a cool curly wig. And the plumber should have low trousers at the back.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This looks like a great line up if it turns out to be correct. I like the various animal suit figures they do, and Lego City was in dire need of judges so all those criminals can be formally sentenced. I wonder if the plumber will have any lower back printing?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Well I can't wait to MOC with them - Chicken Caesar anyone?

Dr Splitz might just be gorilla suit guy with a different coloured head - handy for Dr Zaius from Planet of the Apes.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Chicken suit guy would be perfect for a Fast food restaurant MOC :D

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

OMG!!! Roller derby girl!!! Crossed fingers for Lego roller skates! @Huw, you're right! Thrilled! Though hoping it won't eat in my business ;-) proper excited about it. Though massively confused about why they would make one, over say a rugby player. Fingers crossed

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm really liking the sound of these, but this Dr Splitz sounds an odd choice. I hope they do turn out to be true as having some great MOC ideas.

Gravatar
By in United States,

If true, I'm most excited for:

Maid Marion/Distressed Damsel,
Cyclops,
Mermaid,
Fortune Teller,
Roller Derby Girl,
Caesar,
Waiter.

Still holding out for a Medusa/Gorgon minifig!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Highly disappointing! I do not see my "Hooters Waitress"

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

If this true, sounds like a better line up than series eight. Caesar, knight, waiter, cyclops and mermaid are musts for me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Dr. splitz could be a jeckyl and hyde type character?

Gravatar
By in United States,

If this list is true, it sounds like it could be one of my favorate series yet. If it is true, these names must be interpretations of what someone saw as opposed to official names. Maid Marion and Dr. Splitz raise the most suspician on my part.

Maid Marion could be just someone's interpretation of a more generic damsel in distress.

Dr. Splitz could be a generic monkey-man standing upright and wearing human clothing, maybe inspired by planet of the apes or something.

I'm hoping the judge would have a classic look with a powdered wig and I would also prefer the movie starlet to have a Marilyn Monroe-esque look as opposed to a modern design.

Gravatar
By in United States,

If this is true, I'll be looking forward to the following:
Alien Trooper - has potential
Maid Marion - another minifig to add to my fantasy collection
Heroic Knight - another minifig to add to my fantasy collection
Cyclops - another minifig to add to my fantasy collection
Mermaid - hope the printing on the fish tail is better than the ocean king
Fortune Teller - has potential, hoping for gypsy
Dr. Splitz - Maybe he is a male doctor/surgeon to go with the nurse and surgeon.
Judge - Hoping for a wig on this guy with 17th century style clothes.
Battle Mech - good prospects with this, have to wait and see.
Caesar - a must have
Hollywood Starlet - has potential

Gravatar
By in United States,

Would be fun if the Maid Marion was a modern update of the classic Forestmen babe from the '80s

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes!!! If they make a Lego plunger piece, this series is my new favorite!

Now come on Lego, make a cow suit man and my life is complete :)

By in Turkey,

sounding awesome!! can't wait for christmas to be done with for series 9 and batman!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Most of these sound promising, but as usual, until I see something official, it is nothing more than rumor and speculation that holds no real weight with me.

As far as 'Caesar' goes, Roman Emperors used that as their title so it is not necessarily Julius Caesar.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ever since my Walmart stopped stocking these, I have had to choose between paying jacked up TRU prices or not having any. TRU prices usually lose, let's see what happens with these.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Dr Splitz is probably going to be a a wierd science kind of doctor. Like splitting the atom or something.
The tv series character as eastlans01 research found out, is very unlikely. Never seen a licenced figure in the minifigure collections.

I like alot of this series. Hope that the cyclops is not bald, with a normal stud minifig head, like the crashtest dummy.
But like al other series, 1 through 8, all had dissapointing figures and all had excellent figures. Not sports figure this time. Thank you LEGO. They are always a dissapointment.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, compared to the last few series, I wasn't very excited for this one, but if this list is true, this is the best CMF series yet!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

battle mach and alien soldier. i have high hopes for those 2 mini figs, they better be new pieces or at least new colored pieces.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Battle mech? I am so onboard it's not even funny.

Gravatar
By in United States,

We have gotten a suited character in 3 (gorilla), 5 (lizard), 7 (bunny), and now 9 (chicken).
Anyone noticing a pattern?
I am concluding that we will get another suited character in series 11 (assuming we get that far as series 11 has not been confirmed yet).

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ha! I was right! We are getting a Chickian suit guy. That'll cool.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Oh my! That sounds awesome! Can't wait to see if it's true/pics!:D

Gravatar
By in United States,

Boo... more cops.

I really hope the plumber looks like Mario. And I can't wait for roller skates!

But we really need some pictures before we can judge.

Also if you have issue getting a set because no TRU/LBS around, try Amazon. I got a complete series 7 from a seller there for less than $52. That's less than normal price!

- Accordion player, this could be re-purposed for polka, mariachi, Weird Al.

Yes! That is a great idea!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm really interested to see what the judges hair will be like. I'm hoping it's the British style wig.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

That's a pretty impressive list.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Series 9 is going to have silver packets, and series 10 is confirmed to have gold packets. It seems like they might be stopping at 10. They've really set it up for it being the final one, and it's definitely a likely place to stop. I'm hoping not, but I guess they have to end sometime :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

series 9 has a hobo OK!

Gravatar
By in United States,

If this is true, I am very excited! Hollywood Starlet.... YES PLEASE

Gravatar
By in United States,

I wouldn't mind if they killed this line after 10 series. I have had my fill for now. Of course they can reboot in a few years after they come up with more ideas... maybe offer a special figure in each series.

Gravatar
By in United States,

If you've had your fill after 10 series, just don't buy them anymore. Many people including myself would like this line to continue for a long time. I like having a way to get original minifigs outside of the usual police and firemen etc...

Gravatar
By in United States,

^ Haha ... of course I can't stop collecting after getting them all. Just saying they can rebrand the line like they do for any other line. It gives old collectors an out and new collectors a fresh starting point. I cannot imagine we will be seeing series 17 before they stop or reboot.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just a thought, about the names... has anyone considered that these names are based on someone seeing an image of the series, and not the names Lego has assigned to them? Obviously with many series we've named them ourselves... I keep calling the 2 different cheerleaders "Betty & Veronica" for example, but the names we all call them are usually a bit off from their official names (think "Galaxy Patrol" vs. "Space Marine")

Gravatar
By in United States,

This lineup seems nice I still need to finish series 8 and I wonder what color will the bag be? I would love to see a licensed Marvel vs. Dc minifigure pack, Lego should do what Mega Bloks is doing with their Marvel license and milk it till they run out of set ideas and just put vehicles that don't belong in the set themselves!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I always love news about Collectible Minifigures. Thanks for keeping us updated!

Some of these seem like they'll be fairly basic and similiar to standard city figs (policeman, waiter) but I'll wait until I see images before I judge too much. I am wanting the mermaid, just because I didn't get the ones from the pricey PotC sets. And I'm intrigued to see just what the Battle Mech will turn out to be.

I'll probably end up buying them all, but it's nice to get a little taste of what's to come.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Am I the only one wondering just what arms Chicken Suit guy would have? It's all well giving him a helmet & tail-piece but if it just has normal arms then it ain't really a chicken... Of course some Chima wings could probably be re-used.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Maybe the arms of the Chicken Suit Guy are the same arms as in series 8 Vampire Bat but then in white? Like to see the photo's on this new series, but I'am not the only one.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Thoughts:

All sounds underwhelming, I was hoping for an Aboriginal, or an Aztec Priest :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

Personally, I think this is like Series 8. Most of them sounded odd, but in the end they were right, just not clearly translated.

Some of these don't sound very interesting, I really like the sound of the Chicken suit guy!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I bet the chicken suit guy will have a repainted chima mask and most likely wings too. Arms from the man bat is also a possibility.

Overall not a bad list of characters.

Gravatar
By in Serbia,

They are not stopping at 10. Series 11 has already been designed and there are people who have seen the prototypes.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Ha ha, I proposed a chicken suit guy in one of the comment threads here. It would be great if they actually made one.

Gravatar
By in Ukraine,

Yep, this sounds perfectly legit to me... And yes, most likely someone just saw preliminary images or prototypes, and they just guessed at what their official names will be. Even the distribution of character-types seems exactly right.....

6x new characters that fit neatly into old classic themes: [Damsel in Distress], Heroic Knight, Mermaid, Alien Trooper, [Minifig Battle Robot], [Mutant Ape Scientist (more like Dr Zaius probably)]

plus 6x characters that might not otherwise get made in a normal set: [Roman Emperor], Cyclops, Fortune Teller, Roller Derby Girl, Chicken Suit Guy, Hollywood Starlet

plus 4x new civilians for completing the town scenes, maybe boring for little kids, but wanted by AFOLs: Judge, Downtown Cop, Plumber, Waiter

So yes, I say this is 100% real. Glad to see a Roman Emperor!! =)

Gravatar
By in Ukraine,

^^ And thanks to Ben J for linking to those beautiful official TLG concept art images again...

If I am counting right, then so far they have done 24 out of the 51 characters shown on those two pages, either as CMF figs, or as part of full themes like LOTR, etc.

Plus 3 more coming out now, i.e., the Hollywood Starlet (perhaps based on the Marilyn Monroe concept art in the link), Caesar, and a Cyclops (at minifig-scale).

And then I'm sure we will see at least 3 more of these in the near future, most likely Albert Einstein, the Tibetan Warrior Monk, and the Marie Antoinette fig.

Sounds exactly right to me... =)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@CM4S: As I remember, you had a Cuusoo project that suggested a judge. Exciting.
I'm also looking forward to the obvious plunger piece to come with the plumber. EXTERMINATE! :)

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

It would be nice if Series 9 had bronze polybags, Series 10 silver and Series 11 gold. And what is a Dr. Splitz?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Downtown Cop, I'd like to see a hard-boiled sort with stubble, a fedora and maybe a cloth piece to kit him out in a trench coat. Call him Brick Tracy maybe?
Dr. Splittz I can't see coming from the old show- probably more of a Jekyll-and-Hyde groove to him.
Judge I would think would be a classic sort, perhaps using the graduate's robe piece. No helmets and battle armor for him, that'd be just Dredd-ful.
Battle Mech and Alien Trooper? Yeah, baby.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

If the "Dr. Splitz" figure really turns out to be a mutant monkey-man, this will probably be their opportunity to re-use the gorilla headgear from series 3.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I don't know if this has been answered already but the bag color will be silver/grey.

Gravatar
By in Ukraine,

^^ Yes, almost certainly it'll be the ape mask remade in earth-orange, to make him an orangutan, instead of a gorilla.

Put that on a lab-coat body, and you've got a cool remake of Dr. Zaius from Planet of the Apes. VERY ICONIC!! ;)

Gravatar
By in Israel,

Chicken Suit + Plumber - yeah totally man! :D

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Specific parts that will be difficult to re-use within the CMF line:

-Royal Guard's fur cap
-Gladiator helmet
-Lizard Man headgear
-Lady Liberty headgear
-Minotaur head
-Aztex Warrior helmet
-bagpipes
-Valkyrie helmet
-Cowgirl hat
-Diving helmet

Gravatar
By in United States,

Battle Mech looks interesting.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

For us who are not COMPLETIST gatherers (and dont care of where they are produced), the CMF THEME is an absolutely amazing PICK-ANOTHER-FAVORITE minifig theme. Love it more and more for each series. :-D

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm guessing Downtown Cop is probably somewhat close to Chase McCain.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Battle Mech? Sweet!!!!! Can hardly wait to see it...
