Hello everybody! :classic:

Sometimes you only have to have much luck. And today I had that much luck since I was allowed to look into the retailer’s catalogue for the first half of 2011.

There even the new City sets were pictured.

I of course thought that you do not want to hear what’s new – but I tell you nevetheless.

Please be aware that I had no chance to take any notes or pics – so there might even be some mistakes.

The minifigures from this series look absolutely amazing! :wub: :wub: :wub:

Minifigure Series 3:

-fisher with hinge and fish

-Ferrari driver (red torso) with helmet

-mummy with pan

-? sumo wrestler/karate guy (yellow torso and pants) with trophy

-? female dancer

-samurai knight with removeable armor and samurai sword

-Hawaii girl (green skirt print) with two green rattles

-baseball player with baseball bat

-elf with bow and big buckler

-Native American chief with lance

-alien with space gun

-? male singer with ? micro and ? recorder

-? doctor/surgeon with suitcase and ?

-gorilla with banana

-snowboarder with snowboard

-???

Sorry for that I don't remember the one remaining minfig.

Let's discuss! :classic:

Btw:

1. Series 3 will already be released in January 2011.

2. There will be a series 4, too, but there were unluckily no pics of it in the retailer's catalogue.

3. Series 4 will be released in April 2011.

Thanks for the scoop K-D. There are certainly some potentially interesting figs. Hoards of people will be excited to hear that TLG is going to release an elf. Can't wait to see what these look like.

Thanks for the news. Some of those minifigures sound interesting. Did you see any other new sets that we don't know about yet?

You're welcome, Rick.

Well, the elf was only a minifig with regular face and very blond hair. But since these are only prelim pics I bet that in the final version it'll get a new head mold.

You're welcome, Burman. :classic:

Yes, there are even some more news: topics: 2011 City sets, 2011 Atlantis sets and in the SW topic.

Wow, some of these sound like total must-haves! An elf, too?! How could you tell it was an elf? Did it have pointy ears? Also, did you mean "mummy" as in the monster or as in mother?

It's obvious many of these figs were created as counterparts to the ones released in the earlier series, like the samurai, the karateka, the Native American chief, the alien, the male singer, the surgeon and the snowboarder. I don't mind, though.

Ah, good thinking. I was wondering what a pan has to do with a mummy. :laugh:

-mummy with pan

Thanks for the information, Klaus-Dieter!

When you say "mummy with pan", do you mean the ancient Egyptian mummy with a pan (What is pan then?)? Or a mommy with a frying pan? Sorry I don't get your true meaning...

The minifigure has light blond hair and a big buckler. It's obviouly no regular archer since it doesn't have a helmet. Plus the buckler doesn't fit.

Like already mentioned, I'm convinced that in its final version it'll have a new head mold with pointy ears. But of course I can be wrong, too.

Also, did you mean "mummy" as in the monster or as in mother?

Mummy as the monster or as you can find it in ancient sepultures. It's enwrapped into white paper and you can see only its eyes.

It seems the old rumor about the gorilla is right.

I am already excited about the Alien, the rest not so much. Another karate guy? That sounds strange, are you sure it was not a sumo wrestler? (considering he had yellow torso and pants)

Thanks for the info, Klaus-Dieter. Most of these don't sound too exciting for me, but my opinion may change once I actually see them. There are definitely some good ones in there though.

Then what do you mean by "pan"?

Awesome! This looks like a very exciting round! :laugh: I am looking forward to the gorilla :tongue:

Also, I think what you wrote as "karate guy (yellow torso and pants) with trophy" is a sumo wrestler :wink:

That might well be. Since the pictures of the minfigures weren't very big, it is difficult to say. But I'll add your guess to the list, too.

Thanks for the info, Klaus-Dieter.

You're welcome, Oky Wan Kenobi. :classic:

I can't say so - it looked like a pan. But the more I think about it the less sence it makes ...

K.D!!! :wub:

Thanks for bringing us some of these news to us. I am busy catching up on your latest discovery, but I can't help and noticed this topic first. :blush:

I want to get all of those Minifigs Series 3, and did I see wrong? Are you certain that we are going to get a Samurai, Elf and Hawaii Girl?? If it's true, I am going to be go bonkers for sure. *oh2*

Thankyou Klaus Dieter for all of the 2011 news! (I say NEWS not "RUMOURS" because I trust you and your sources).

I think the "Pan" that the Mummy figure is holding would be an Ankh. It's a suitable object for it to hold, and I'd imagine it could look like a pan, too.

Also KD, if you can remember, did the Space Alien figure have a molded or printed head? I expect it has the same gun as the astronaut from series one.

Anyway, great news and thanks for sharing :thumbup:

You're welcome, Rocketbilly. :classic:

The alien had a mold as head. The minifig and the head looked similar to the one from the alien in 5969. But if I remember right, the alien had green eyes.

Awesome find! Thanks for posting this Klaus! :sweet:

More than half of those things make me really excited. I like the sound of the fisherman. Perhaps he'll come with a new hat mould? I suspect they'll make a new fishing rod too, so it can fit in the packaging! :grin:

I suppose most of these figures will come with new things like their predecessors. :thumbup:

And another reivival! A Samurai! :wub: That'll go nicely with the Ninja from Series 1!

Oh, you've got to be kidding...

I haven't even found series 1 yet... this is quite ridiculous.

Here's hoping that it's at least going to have more production. :sceptic:
