I'm intrigued as to what's so special about the silhouette!?!

That silhouette guy better not be Mr. Gold all over again.

The silhouette looks like it has pigs ears.

The silhouette guy looks like Paul Revere or maybe a highwayman. Probably the latter.

It almost looks like TLG is starting to stretch a bit to get more CMFs. Or perhaps trying to get a return on their investment in the plastic molds they've invested in.

I think the silhouette may be a pirate judging from the hat and guns. The Paul Revere guess seems likely, too.

Gravatar

I also think the silhouette guy is a highwayman. It looks like he has a tricorne hat, two flintlock pistols, and a cape.

Worst one in years, I maybe like 1 of them :|

I like the 2 space themed guys, but other than that I really don't care for this series. The mustache totally ruins the corn guy in my opinion. I think it makes him look like some kind of weirdo.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think the best part of many of these minifigures is their accessories.

By in Japan,

Trying to cut my CMF spendings these days, so I'll have to resist some. Let's see:

- Battle Dwarf: I guess I'm gonna get it. Hard to resist medieval fantasy minifigs. Nostalgia from my role playing teenage years?
- Veterinarian: I'd easily pass, but I'm sure my daughter will want it.
- Circus Strong Man: I need to see into more details. Could be an "endearing" minifig or not.
- Corn Cob Guy: I usually love the minifigures with ridiculous suits (who doesn't?), but I don't know, this one doesn't really attract me.
- Elf Girl: see Battle Dwarf.
- Hot Dog Man : I may pass, I may get it. Not sure.
- Gourmet Chef : Will get it for my wife.
- Connoisseur : must get. I mean, he should be called the "French guy" (full disclosure: I'm French ;-) ).
- Rocket Boy : ain't he cute? Of course I'll get it.
- Retro Spaceman : probably my favorite of the set.
- Roman Gladiator : pass.
- Professional Surfer : pass.
- Dance Instructor : not really interested in the minifig, but that hair (and the H2O bottle) are parts I may want.
- Butterfly Girl : I was going to pass until my daughter saw it. That's her must-have of the set.
- Yuppie : number three must-have for me after the rocket boy and retro spaceman.
- Mystery minifig: heard rumors about a Highwayman, looks like a highwayman. What makes me wonder is not what is it, but why is it a mystery minifigure?

Might the mystery figure be Pirates of the Caribbean related? Seems like it would be odd to have one figure out of the lot related to a license but it's also odd they're hiding the details.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can see a lot of MOC scenes built around Retro Spaceman.

Gravatar
By in United States,

They look good but they are not in my sights.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

The Bull dog, rabbit, whisk and all the accessories!! Looks amazing.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The chef is fantastic! I will definitely feel through bags to get it. For the mystery guy, I have no idea why, what, or if it will be in every box of 60. All I can say is that it better be a good figure that isn't too hard to get.

It seems like a lot of people don't like this series, but I still think it will be fine, just to get more characters for a Lego City. They are fine, and even though I don't want all of them, I'll buy some bags to see what I get, and I'll feel bags to get the female chef.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like the accessories included in this series, too. That's the best part.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Having not touched the Lego Batman Movie figures (price, not keen on "fleshies" and haven't got any other Superhero stuff other than the Mighty Micros) I can't decide whether to dive back into CMFs with this set. I kind of want them all but not going to pay over the odds either.

Gravatar
By in United States,

i haven't gotten minfigs since series 15 :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

They look decent. I would like to spend less on CMF since the prices keep going up, but who knows what will happen come May. I do like some of the accessories and it seems to be they go for the same cost as the whole figure, so might as well get the set.

Elf shield may be my favorite accessory or the tray for the hot dog/drink. That will come in handy.

Although I don't see a whisk in the above picture, but there is one in the main release. I find that odd.

I do wonder why the highwayman is hidden considering it is part of the 16 and not an extra like Mr Gold. Why not just hide them all until closer to release? I'm not part of their marketing time, so I guess I'll never understand their motives.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Does anyone know how I get a complete box of minifigures?

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

Stand and deliver, your money or your life

Gravatar
By in United States,

Maybe the silouhette will have multiple different colored pieces, and will look different based on what pack you buy.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

@mark235 Over here there are some independent LEGO-resellers that sell complete boxes. But maybe a local toy store would also want to sell you one if you ask for it.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like the chef and the vet but can't help feeling they should be in either a fun in the... set or a city set rather than a cmf poly bag. The rocket boy and rko spaceman are great fun - I can see him being in cantina scenes adding some character.

Gravatar
By in United States,

My favorite parts are the accessories. The bull dog and the rabbit are great. The corn guy would make a great scene with a giant trying to eat corn on the cob.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Love the idea of a double mystery minifig! I hope they continue in future series! The mystery guy is totally some type of pirate/highwayman, judging by the pistols.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

These all look really nice in my opinion.

Gravatar
By in United States,

80's cop guy and the corn suit are probably the only two I am interested in.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hmmmm... That silhouette isn't a 17th minifigure (i.e. Mr Gold) so they must be special in some other way. Could this be some kind of spoiler-thing related to a licensed movie? Like Pirates of the Caribbean or even Ninjago? But if so, why only one licensed fig in a series of unlicensed? Verrrry curious....

Gravatar
By in Finland,

Even though I don't like Corn Cob Man's moustache either, I can see why they included them: because the corn suit is yellow as is the skin color of the figure, they needed something to break the color - that's why he has big brown facial hair.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Could it be possible there's different colour variants of the mystery figure?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Maybe I'm starting to get tired of these but there are very few in the set that look good. I won't be going for the whole series like I usually do. I like that second row of the French guy, space guy, little rocket kid and the gladiator. I also like the pastry chef. I'll go for the Vet and the Butterfly girl for my daughter. That's about it. Not sure why but I hate the Corn Guy and I usually like the costume figs.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Is it just me, or does that surfer guy look a lot like a yellow Luke Skywalker?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Some look cool. But agree better not be another Mr Gold!!
Fed up of being unlucky if it is!!
Love the kid dressed as a rocket!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm surprised to see a fair number of negative comments on this series--overall, I think it's fantastic! My personal favorites The Connesuer and the Retro Spaceman, but the kids and I will probably end up getting most (if not all) of this series.

And like so many others, I'm super curious about the mystery figure--particularly the logic behind keeping the identity a mystery. Is it a licensed figure? Some sort of limited edition? My personal theory is that it's just something to spice up the line and make kids (TLG's primary demographic) curious enough to buy blind bags until they've discovered the identity of the figure. Either way, I'm sure it will be a fine figure, and I'm not expecting another Mr. Gold fiasco.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think the mystery figure is a tie-in to POTC, maybe Captain Barbossa

Gravatar
By in United States,

On another page, I saw that a box includes a minimum of one of each character. This may mean one "secret fig" per box, which is better odds than Mister Gold, but still difficult.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So what is the Connoisseur a connoisseur of exactly? Baguettes or small dogs? The cape makes the silhouette figure seem more like a highway man than a pirate. Corn Cob guy looks like Cliff from 'Cheers'.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like a lot of them, but at $4US each I'll only get the Corncob Guy and Rocket Boy. Hoping Toys R US runs another 2/$5 sale on minifigures while these are available.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Bought only 2 of the Batman minifigures, cause at 4€ each you start thinking twice. And I really liked those. Seeing these now, it's probably one of the weakest series since it all started in 2010 and I believe I'm going to skip this. There is not a single figure that is a must have for me. In only 7 years the price doubled, and this is where I think, I can get a really nice set for 40€ instead of a handfull of minifigures. Ford Raptor and Master Wu Dragon are easily available for 35€ and they're both great sets, for example. Y-wing is at 45€ with 5 figures, AT-ST at 36€ with 3 figures. It's more value definitely than a couple of minifigs.
On the other hand, for collectors of the modular houses, I believe there are some pretty interesting figures to get and fill up your streets..

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I am exactly what TLG is hoping for with the CMFs. I will get all of them. I love the variety. It adds interesting details to my town. I have great ideas for MOCs based on one or two that come out in each series.

I've only ever passed on Disney (because I'm a serious hater), and the German Soccer Team, because I just don't follow soccer enough to want to get them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ DJLeo "i haven't gotten minfigs since series 15 :(" translation "I haven't skipped anything being series 16 is still currently available in stores" ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I was hoping that the Silhouette was the actual minifig. Alas, it's probably a highwayman.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I saw these this morning, and I just feel like, haven't we seen all these before?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

$5 each? I hope not!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Some of these are 'must gets' for me: the dwarf, elf, gladiator, retro spaceman and highwayman. Others are of interest for parts like the butterfly girl (great wings!) and the vet (that rabbit will make a tasty morsel for the panther I'm planning to get this summer).

@paul888, I'm going to let you in on a secret as long as you promise not to tell anyone: LEGO minifigures are mostly modular. If you don't like the corn cob guy's head, you can replace it with another one you like more.

@mark235, WHS will do it. You need to arrange it in advance by talking with the manager of the store, making it clear that it has to be an *unopened* box, and leave your contact details . The manager will tell you the box will need to be opened to check the contents, i.e. that there really are 60 packets in the box. Tell the manager that that is fine as long as the box is opened in front of you. They should be OK with that. I've asked loads of times and they've always been happy to comply.

I think the shadow one will be a character from the new Pirates of the Caribbean.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Am I the only one that has never heard of a "highwayman"? What is it?

Gravatar
By in United States,

So pumped for the hair piece from the dance instructor. I now can make a Rachel Dolezal minifig.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is the most underwhelming series of them all.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I will be getting the full set. Regarding the Corn Cob Guy, I think the moustache represents the "silk" on the ear of corn.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Maybe this post is another April Fool.

By in United Kingdom,

> Paul888 The mustache totally ruins the corn guy in my opinion. I think it makes him look like some kind of weirdo.

Yes, it's completely normal to dress up as a corn on the cob. But men that grow a moustache, weirdos.

Although there are quite a few (distant) rehashes, I think the prints and variety of parts they come with makes this a fairly strong set again, at least for people that MOC using them.

Heavy rehashes: surfer, gladiator, fitness girl, dwarf.

Similar figures: baker, fast food guy (pizza guy), female elf (forest maiden), strongman, vet (animal control, similar to surgeon - along with zoo keeper, why are they always female?), French Guy (mime), butterfly girl (fairy), corn on cob (hot dog).

Although they have similar counterparts, having these is good in my view, they complement past figures to give more of a similar population. Eg: chicken man, hot dog and corn on the cob all fighting for advertising space outside three side-by-side restaurants; hot dog seller and pizza delivery guy getting in each others way trying to sell their food; fairy girl playing with unicorn girl and butterfly girl; surgeon and vet (without the rabbit, and hopefully no animal print on the torso) working in a hospital; baker and chef working together, etc.

The rocket guy (similar to past spaceman but obviously different era) and rocket boy look great to me, the yuppie just plain awful. To me he is possibly going to take over as the worst CMF ever.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Mystery minifig looks like a young Lord Vortech.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Seems a few of these were made to be dropped right into Assembly Square.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Not going to lie, I really hope if the mystery figure is a highwayman, that he'll have a similar costume to Adam Ant in his video for Stand and Deliver XD

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I always get every1 regardless My 1 shame in life of collecting these is the German football figures and batman movie ones have a full box of each in the loft just don't interest me at all but gotta have em all :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Eh, nothing here is really a "must have" for me out of this one and probably just going to skip this series entirely.

Gravatar
By in United States,

oh guuuuyssss!!!! realy dont you know that the silhouette has a pirate hat ??? its so obviousssss ! he also has a cape. he has pirates guns too . im pretty sure that its some kind of pirate or royale guard ...
i wonder if silhouette is mr gold in pirate clothes , just imagine...

Gravatar
By in United States,

silhouette is a pirate im pretty sure
he has a cape
he has pirate guns
he has pirate hat
who the else has this things?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think as far as the mystery figure goes, they are just now taking cues from companies like Kidrobot by including somewhat identifiable, yet easy to get mystery figures that are part of the regular series while leaving other know figures rare.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really wish Lego would stop making movie or special series (i.e. The Simpsons, Disney, Lego Batman Movie) and keep making regular fun series like this one! I really like the Corn Cob Guy because every summer I detassel corn.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I thought this series would be a bit weak, especially since we just got the Lego Batman Movie series and the Ninjago Movie series is rumored, but I think I like it after seeing the pictures. I like the butterfly girl most of all. SHE IS ADORABLE!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The silhouette is the high way man

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think it might be another mariachi guy and I want the vet and the artist guy

Gravatar
By in United States,

The only one I would WANT is the butterfly girl, but I wouldn't mind the battle dwarf, corn cob guy, elf girl, rocket boy, retro space man, or the dance instructor.
