As we continue our Toy Fair 2013 coverage across the pond for the UK portion of the festivities, we've had a selection of images not unlike those we see of that damned Yeti who won't stand still long enough to shoot him (pictures I mean...we'd never kill a Yeti. I loved Harry and the Hendersons.) Pictured are the newest batch of LEGO Minifigures..series 10 we believe..in all their glory..albeit from a puzzling angle. Hell, we'll take what we can get!
We've squinted hard over the images sent in, selected the least ghost like one and can make out the following (feel free to laugh at our names)...
Bee Person (guy?)
Sea Captain (Quint!)
Painter with roller
Bald Headed Professor
British Colonial Soldier with a musket
Female Warrior with a spear
Dramatic Clown (in white face with the tall cone hat)
Female....Scientist? (lady in glasses)
We are also seeing a guy in a baseball cap, a form that could almost be golf clubs in front of a dude in a red beret (or red hat) and glasses (Patton..or for the sake of not giving him his real name..The General? i'd heard he liked golf..though the red beret usually indicates Airborne), another figure falling from the sky (skydiver?), a blonde woman with glasses (celebrity?) and someone with a mohawk and red glasses. Pardon if we've listed a type that has already been made..we aren't experts like the Brickset crew who have stated that come series 11 or so, we will see a "Golden Minifigure" hidden in the boxes, which you are encouraged to hunt for. To sweeten this pot, here are images of LEGO Minifigures Series 9!
...and series 11...
SECOND UPDATE!: A reader spotted some images online originating from Toysnbricks.com showing mock ups of the series 10 lineup slightly different from what we are seeing on our UK Toy Fair wall. It is believed this lot of minifigures pictured was meant to be possible picks for series 10 or 11 or both at an early stage. What WE got on the wall was the mohawk taken off the Motorcycle Mechanic and put on the Tomahawk Warrior, his spear given to the Warrior Woman, the Motorcycle Mechanic got that red hat I was talking about, the golf clubs in front of him was Medusa's head, Scuba Steve was the Paintball Player, the Bee guy is actually a Bee Girl, the Scientist MAY have become the Librarian or they just switched lineups, the unidentified falling guy is the Skydiver and the rest you can see pretty clearly. We'll put the pics next to each other so you can make your own assessment.
