With the dust now settling from the excitement surrounding the sets that LEGO has unveiled during this year’s New York Toy Fair, let’s now get a closer look at each of these starting with the next line of LEGO’s collectible minifigures (CMF). The LEGO CMF Series 17 (71018) of the LEGO CMF has received plenty of mixed reactions from the LEGO fan community, but for every minifig completionist by heart, this is one series that you don’t want to miss.
The set itself contains 16 minifigures (with one still waiting to be revealed, though it is rumored to be a sort of a French Highwayman) and thanks to Robert8 over at Eurobricks, we now have a tentative list of names for each minifig in this series. We may not be able to see the entire figures yet, let alone see the confirmation of the names of these characters, but we will wait and see until LEGO releases their official press release and official images of their CMF Series 17. In the meantime, let see what these names are and what clues they can provide about the minifigs’ features and characteristics. The Brick Fan has also released a feel guide that can help you feel your way through their blind bags once Series 17 is out in stores on May of this year.
