The first picture of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 10 has been revealed yesterday via Argos’ website and of course all the LEGO blogs and forums are abuzz with the news. This series should be available sometime in April or May, so we have a bit of waiting, but in the meantime we can discuss all the interesting minifigures in this series. Take a look below! (Click image for larger view.)
Starting with the top row from right to left, than going through the bottom row, we have the following Collectible Minifigures in Series 10:
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Librarian – with a coffee-mug and a book titled Oranges and Peaches. A Google search reveals that the book’s title refers to a story about communication skills. A patron at a library comes to the reference desk and asks for a book called “Oranges and Peaches”. The librarian has never heard of the book before, but does a quick search in the catalog. Nothing. A quick search on Amazon offers some possibilities, but, no. Nothing. Rather than send the patron away the librarian probes the patron for more information about the book: “Can you tell me what the book is about?” The patron says they have no idea. The librarian then asks how did they hear about the book. The patron says it was assigned by their professor for class. The librarian then asks: “Which class are you taking?” The patron says Biology. The librarian finally asks: “Could it be Darwin’s Origin of Species?”
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Painter – with a paint roller, a cute cap we have only seen once with the Plumber in Minifigures Series 9, and paint-stained overalls. Very cute minifig indeed!
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Warrior Woman - will go great with either the Viking Warrior in Minifigures Series 4 and the Viking Woman in Minifigures Series 7, or with the Highlander from Minifigures Series 6. Her golden-tipped spear is also unique as previously it only appeared with a silver tip. Her shield is also very nice.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Sea Captain – with a nice cap, binoculars and a seagull. Could join up with the Sailor in Minifigs Series 4.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Baseball Player – now the Baseball Player from Minifigures Series 3 will have someone to play with! Clutchers vs. Stackers – that should be a great game!
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Sad Clown – very similar to the Mime in Minifigures Series 2. A really sweet minifigure in my opinion.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Trendsetter Girl - with a lap-dog, the latest smart-phone and trendiest sunglasses. Some LEGO fans say she is atrocious to the level of being irresistible. But in any case she comes with a new hairpiece that will be useful.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Mr. Gold – note that this minifig is not part of the customary 16 minifigures per series, but an extra. There are going to be very limited quantities of these minifigs and as far as I know they will be randomly added to full boxes of LEGO Collectible Minifigures. I’m sure they will be selling for a fortune on eBay and Bricklink. If you want to find one yourself you can feel the baggie for the top-hat.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Motorcycle Mechanic – comes with a common wrench, but what’s really unique about this minifigure is the tattoo on his arm!
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Grandpa – the first balding minifigure ever! And a very clever way by LEGO to achieve that effect. Comes with newspaper and coffee-mug.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Tomahawk Warrior – would go great with the previously released Native American Warriors in Minifigures Series 1 and Series 3, or the Aztec Warrior from Minifigures Series 7.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Paintball Player - paintball is fun, and LEGO minifigures know that. This guy has been shot several times, but he is still in the game. His paintball gun is a new piece.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Roman Officer – comes with sword, cape and a plume for his helmet. Although he is similar to the previous Roman Soldier from Minifigures Series 6, I really like this guy’s torso and leg design. He would also be a great protector for the Roman Emperor from Minifigures Series 9.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Medusa - another mythical creature joining the previously released Merman and Mermaid from Minifigures Series 7 and Series 9.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Skydiver – I love this guy’s facial expression! And he is rightfully scared as his parachute won’t open! :?
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Bumblebee Girl – she will join the previously released costumed minifigures like the Gorilla Suit Guy from Minifigures Series 3, the Lizard Man from Series 5, the Bunny Suit Guy from Series 7, and the Chicken Suit Guy from Series 9.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 10 Revolution Soldier – besides being a brave soldier, this is the second powdered-wig minifigure besides the Judge in Minifigures Series 9, opening up lots of possibilities to create LEGO dioramas from the big-wig era.
Again, the Collectible Minifigures Series 10 should be available in a couple of months for $2.99 per packet. For currently available Minifigure Series you can check your local Toys’R'Us, Wal-Mart, Target, etc. Or you can also check the Online LEGO Shop.
