Remember that epic first series of yellow-packaged LEGO Minifigures Series 1 that came out way back in 2012? Well, it’s taken a few years, but everything that’s old is new again, as the yellow blind bags for LEGO Minifigures Series 16 71013 have now been revealed! Oh, and uh… some of the figures themselves too! Check out the Penguin Guy minifigure, Banana Costume, Ice Queen, Baby Boy and more!
The LEGO 71013 Series 16 Minifigures packaging gives us our first look at nine of the sixteen minifigs that will make up this series, as well as a number of accessories and a LEGO Baby Boy figure!
The complete list of figures included in CMF Series 16 is as follows, with the characters shown on the packaging in bold text:
- Babysitter with Baby Boy
- Scalawag Pirate
- Female Cyborg
- Ice Queen
- Penguin Guy
- Banana Guy
- Arabian Knight Archer
- Imp (Boy in Devil Costume)
- Wildlife Photographer
- Dog Show Judge
- Female Kickboxer
- Spooky Boy
My personal favorites in this group are likely to be the same favorites as everybody else: the Penguin Suit Guy minifigure and Guy in Banana Suit Costume Minifigure. I hope that I’m not so old now that I’m the only one who remembers the classic “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” video and dance… am I?
Let’s face it: that Penguin Costume minifig is basically the single cutest thing ever in this line (although the new Baby Boy figure isn’t far behind!). I tend to dislike characters wearing devil costumes, but the boy wearing the winged demon (Imp) costume also looks super-adorable with his little tongue sticking out and awesome printed Halloween bucket for Trick-Or-Treating.
The Series 16 LEGO Minifigures are scheduled to be released in Fall 2016 (August/September), although an exact date hasn’t been confirmed for the figures yet by TLG. It’s going to be at least five months before these hit store shelves, though, so collectors are going to have plenty of time to save up their dollars and buy up the upcoming Disney Minifigures Series 1 assortment before this wave hits shelves.
I’ll post updates here and to our Facebook Page and Twitter Page once more news and photos of the LEGO Series 16 minifigures are available, so be sure to follow Brick Toy News on social media so that you don’t miss out when any of the latest news hits!
Which of the first half of the revealed figures for Minifigures Series 16 is your favorite, brick fans? Are you looking forward to owning any or all of these figures in late summer 2016, or does none of this latest batch succeed in capturing your imagination?
