    ^ Cracking find. We're obviously getting a Xenomorph minifigure in Series 8 :-P

    ... Ok, ok, I'm joking.
    Add "laweyer" to the list ... 2nd oldest 'profession'!

    I've heard of a French designer who is now working for LEGO. Here are some of his work. It looks like we've already seen a lot of his ideas be created.

    I think this was covered earlier in another thread.

    The first sight!!
    image

    Hideously stolen from the thread on eurobricks but thought people would appreciate it shared here. Looks like a nice gold cutlass.

    ^ Such a tease! If they are out in September, surely someone could (officially) leak a pic of all the figs. After all, the Haunted House is due out in September and we already have tonnes of pics and now a video.
  • SpaceCakeSpaceCake Member Posts: 291
    ^ Well stolen sir! I salute you!

    Someone Welsh!

    We already have an English beef-eater (royal guard), an Irish Leprechaun and a Scottish bag-pipe player. Surely it's time for a Welsh mini fig...

    I'm guessing a pretty young Welsh lass in a stove-pipe hat : )

    Finally!!! I've been waiting for LEGO to put a pirate in the CMF line, really excited to see more!

    ^ in padding, unlike the rest of the world's rugby players.

    I think it was already on this thread. You could have an american footballer for the US market, and remove his protection to turn him into a rugby player for the rest of us.
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    ^But then he would only be playing for 'brownie points' instead of multi-million dollar deals in contracts and sponsorships.

    And you could put a tutu on him for our European soccer fans :). J/K, just messin with ya guys. Weird how soccer is so popular globally, but you can't pay people to watch it here.

    ^Its also true vice versa. My european colleagues who ex-patted to the US are big rugby and soccer guys, played it their whole life growing up and still do time to time even in their mid-upper 40's. So they've given football a chance and watched a couple seasons worth, but show no real excitement when we talk about it. I think its because football inherently has a lot of rules and technicalities. We see it as adding skill & complexity, others see NFL as touch-rugby for cry babies. Unfortunately, the lack of global appreciation what makes it so unlikely that we'll finally see a proper Pro Footballer in CMF form anytime soon. Unlike Baseball & Basketball.

    This is the closest I came... took this photo at a Diamond Jubilee Party:

    I'm guessing the welsh national dress (or a welsh themed figure) would probably be less internationally recognised than a grenadier guard, bagpiper or leprechaun.

    The pirate picture gives me hope that we might start to see series 8 pictures soon, either official or leaked (assuming that the figs are already in production? not too sure how long these things take to manufacture and distribute for a september release). The new pirate hat (blackbeard) would have been nice, but I'll settle for this.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 19,772
    I think also the stereotypes are internationally recognised. It makes me wonder if we will get other nationalities - not just our (UK) home nations. After all, Lego is not British. The Viking just about covers Scandinavia. Baseball - the US.

    So what about ...

    Onion seller - France
    Lederhosen man - Germany
    Pizza chef - Italy
    Rice paddy man / woman - China, but covers lots of Asia
    Snake charmer - India

  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 3,462
    ^I think the lederhosen guy is a cert. A snake charmer would be good, I just think they get into a tricky situation when a fig should obviously be not yellow, though I guess it could work.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 19,772

    The only downside of the Lederhosen Man would be the beer stein - alcohol related. Even better would be a Lederhosen woman, with two jugs. Ahem.
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    ^ Would help with my never-gonna-happen where eagles dare MOC too.

    You mean this thread isn't about boobs, alcohol and lederhosen?!

  • TheBigLegoskiTheBigLegoski Amsterdam, NederlandMember Posts: 1,435
    Ah! Well if we are going down that road then I suggest that in one of the next CMF series TLG put a traditional Dutch girl, wearing some sort of traditional/folklore dress and one of those typical white hats with flaps, mirrors etc. AND of course on her feet actual Lego 'klompen' (Dutch word for wooden clogs) carrying a bunch of tulips.

    But then again as I am an Amsterdammer and a 'city slicker' and have never even had a pair of clogs on my feet, might I suggest for series 8 or the next series to include a pothead, a hooker, and a pimp. Or perhaps a combination of all the above mentioned?!
    image
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 3,462
    Not sure about the smoking, but the classic dutch girl I could see. They could reuse the riding hood basket as well. Clogs could be tricky though.
  • SpaceCakeSpaceCake Member Posts: 291
    ^^ My dream girl.

    LOL.
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332

  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,270
    So what about ...

    Onion seller - France
    Doesn't the Mime cover France? =)
  • CancanCancan Member Posts: 31
    You could give the Lederhosen guy a big pretzel (sorry, not making a big sausage joke.)
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,918
    A Canadian Mountie would be nice. ;)

    Chinese warrior just like the terracotta warriors or Chinese emperor.

    BTW if you are a CMF collector, there is a recent DK Lego sticker book out, it contains all CMF from series 1 to 7. It was really fun playing with the stickers. There are lots of extras to stick elsewhere too.

  • byolegobyolego Member Posts: 114
    How about a plain housewife/mother or father with a baby on baby bjorn or a stroller? That's most of us AFOLs ... when we're not playing with Lego. (or that's what I assume anyway).

    That way we'll get a baby lego minifigure!

    Actual this idea would be pretty cool and could even go a step further.... think of "It's a Small World" and that international cast of characters. A male & female representation in a variety of ethnic/cultural outfits.

    ^ Like but now I have the song in my head... thought I'd suppressed all knowledge of it now that it's 8 years since I worked at Disneyland Paris and heard it ad nauseam...

    ^ "suppressed" is the correct word for it. You never lose it.. it just pops up every now and then to drive you crazy.

    LEGO has announced the first minifig of series 8. It's going to be a pirate:

    Come on, sing along with me...
    It's a world of laughter,
    A world of tears.
    It's a world of hopes,
    And a world of fears.
    There's so much that we share,
    That it's time we're aware,
    It's a LEGO world after all.

    CHORUS:
    It's a LEGO world after all
    It's a LEGO world after all
    It's a LEGO world after all
    It's a LEGO, LEGO world

    So would you go for this idea?

    It would be banned from my house, but I think it'd be a neat idea and give it a thumbs up.

    But speaking of CMF, I really think a lot of people would be all over a Small World series of minifigs.... I mean, you have all the Disneyphiles out there that would buy them up. Plus, I think Disney and LEGO would both win if they collaberated on Disney character minifigs (and playsets).

  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,594
    It gets in your head and won't go away, it's like a virus!!
    Actually though, It's A Small World is not so infectious as the parade theme I had to endure day in day out (I worked in a shop on the parade route) - "Dancin' - A Catchy Rhythm" - anyone know it??
    For some unknown reason, I bought CDs of both songs before I left - there must've been a subliminal brainwashy message hidden in there...

  • RobbRobb Member Posts: 144
    ^^ If they had a LEGO set with (classic yellow) minifigs sitting in a mini-boat going through the PoTC Disneyland ride, I would actually consider buying that. However, the actual PoTC sets... not so much.

    ^^^^ I know that LEGO already does some Disney Princess themes with Duplo, but it would really rock my socks if they came out with, like, Cinderella's Castle or something like that - as long as they do real minifigs and not minidolls!
  • SpaceCakeSpaceCake Member Posts: 291
    No! No more Disney/LEGO frankenthemes!!!

    It is heresy!!!!
  • CurvedRoadPlateCurvedRoadPlate Member Posts: 257
    I want a Hall of Presidents set. We need a Lincoln mini fig.

    ^The famous vampire hunter? Wouldn't that fit more with Monster Fighters? :P
