I know that series 16 was just released and there is a discussion about the disney series coming back for the castle release, but has anyone seen anything about series 17? rumors pics and or whatnot?

Some more information is now available regarding the next CMF series so I thought I'd revive this thread.

Series 17 is scheduled for a May 1st release and will retail for 3.99$ / 3.99€.

The European price hike does not seem to be unique to the Batman series as some retailers are already putting up listings for the S17 figures for 3.99€. I think we can expect 3.99€ for all of the future CMF series.

As for the content of the series, so far we have only seen this picture on the Batman CMF leaflet:

Here are some of the rumored minifigures (found on eurobricks forum):

  • Circus Strongman
  • Butterfly Suit Girl
  • Hot Dog Vendor
  • Battle Dwarf
  • Corn Cob Guy (leaked image floating around)

 

Feel free to post rumors and/or speculate about the series (but don't post any leaked images). What other miniifgures do you guys expect / want to see?

It is an epic fail this new price EUR 4. Absolutelly no reason to increase the price by 100% (!!!!!!!!!) during 5 years !

Such price can be acceptable only for licensed series , such as batman serie (althogh many characters are just own TLG licence), not at all for standard figs. 

EUR 4 for ONE non-licenced fig is extremly overpriced. And for a blind bag its just a robbery - many customers, which are not checking the bags by feeling, need to throw out a lot of money to get full serie. Its unacceptable.

The shape of that shadow head kind of reminds me of some of the ninjago villains - perchance ninjago movie figures before series 17?

Looks like medieval headgear to me:

Yeah, makes you wonder how far they can go. Apparently customers are still willing to pay 4€, because Batman figs are selling out quickly over here.

May sound harsh, but for investors of previous minifigure series I'd say it could be good news. I think we can expect a slight boost for older series as people may be more willing to pay a premium compared to previous RRP of 3€ (and 2.5€ before that and 2€ before that).

It's possible, though I doubt it.

The shadow makes it look like he has epaulettes and a cape. The neck is also thicker than a regular minifigure, hinting at an additional accessory. Maybe a beard or a scarf?

I'm seeing this headgear piece, a cape, and some piece(s) on the neck/shoulders to for a medieval character to fill the CMF queen & king's court.

Yes, though some guy on eurobricks claims to have a list and says it's not a matador, nor a pirate.

It does look like the silhouette of a tricorne hat to me as well with epaulettes like c_rpg stated.

Picture of corncob man from reddit shows him next to a box of corn flakes cereal ...? Like he is a freebie in some Asian box of corn flakes...? Not disputing him being or not in series 17, just my 2 cents. Hmm, can't even find the same picture anymore, glad I took a screen shot.

Rising price is a bummer for parents, but good news for resellers. I'm hoping they keep raising the price and produce less. These things fly off the shelves here in California. I wouldn't be surprised if Series 18 has a $5 RRP here in the States.

From Reddit and Eurobricks, hints for Series 17:



* 1) Circus Strongman
* 2) Butterfly suit girl
* 3) Hello, I am a town character that is present in at least 25 minifigures since the 80's and I am never been released as a collectible minifigure
* 4) Hello, I am a guy and seeing me will make people think what you thought when it was series 4 and there was one character related to series 1.
* 5) Battle Dwarf
* 6) Hello, I am a girl, I will make many army builders happy, I have a counterpart scattered somewhere in the first 10 waves.
* 7) Hot Dog Vendor
* 8) Hello, I am a guy and my silhouette is visible in the leaftlet for batman series. I am not a pirate. (Also stated to not be a Matador or Town Crier)
* 9) Corn Cob Suit Guy
* 10) Hello, I am a character from one nationality specifically.
* 11) Hello, I am a girl, and I am related to someone in series 5 and someone in series 15 at the very same time.
* 12) Hello, I am a character, and you don't want to mess with me. I sound like a re-hash from someone in the first 5 waves, if this is historically correct.
* 13) Hello, I am a guy and this is totally bizarre. Really, nobody would have thought that I would have ever been a minifigure. And my price will sky-rocket. At least this is what Shintaku thinks.
* 14) Hello, I am a guy and I will make the 80's great again. No I am not Donald Trump.
* 15) Hello, I am a character, and I am not always on planet Earth.
* 16) Hello, I am a character and I am somewhat related to animals.

So cool if this is true... I wonder if #10 is the U.K. Lester?
