There has been a lot of speculation during the course of the months on what will be included in LEGO’s next wave of minifigures or more precisely, its Series 16 of minifigs. Frankly, there is a pretty accurate list of minifigures that has been going around the internet, with a leaked image of its polybag artwork that went online. The said image was still in its early design stages so its accuracy is still dubious – plus the fact that it was illegally distributed then.
As they say, good things come to those who wait because this time around, we have what it seems our first pre-order listing of the LEGO Minifigures Series 16 (71013) courtesy of Amazon France. Now we’re not quite sure if this is just a mess-up since there are several occasions where Amazon posted some items for pre-order only to take it down afterwards. In any case, here’s a screenshot in case the page is taken down.
This listing from Amazon France was also posted by Price Vortex in their database under the LEGO minifigure category. If you may have noticed, Amazon France doesn’t have any official images of the said minifigure series yet, except for this picture that closely resembles the leaked image that went online last March.
The site indicates that Series 16 is temporarily out of stock, with no estimated delivery date yet as of this writing. A rough Google translation gives us this product description with some light editing from our end.
Embark on exciting adventures with Series 16 LEGO collectible figures! Meet the desert warrior, penguin boy, the ice queen, the spy, banana boy, the hiker, the champion of boxing, boy scary, gross, the Cyborg, the little devil, the winner of the dog show the filibuster, the babysitter, wildlife photographer and Mariachi. Each “surprise bag” contains a splendid figure with one or more accessories, plus a baseplate to display your minifigure, a collector leaflet and a single set of code to unlock the character of the figure included in the super LEGO Minifigures Online (download and installation of the game required). Make sure you get permission from your parent or guardian before playing online.
The said description confirms what we have already heard from several forums on what minifigs will be included in Series 16. On a similar note, the Polish website of Toys R Us posted a thumbnail of what seems to be the minifigure ambassador of Series 16. Here’s a screenshot from TRU’s website, followed by a zoomed in image of Banana Man.
Having our first look of Banana Man’s image makes us wonder if both Amazon France and TRU Poland have their share of official images for Series 16 already. We’ll keep you posted as soon as more news comes in, so be sure to stay tuned here at the Brick Show.
