  1. Thanks for the game, Itaria! I will admit, the "Baker" on my guessing list was, in my mind, very similar to the Gourmet Chef - white chef's hat with female hair, a bakery item... but I imagined her with oven mitts instead of hands... I didn't expect you get all that from a simple name, so a score of zero is fine with me. I just like to guess :)

  3. Here's more in-depth thoughts: Connoisseur: The bulldog is cute. The rest of him is stereotypical French, and is overall passable. Butterfly Suit Girl: Different than I expected, in a bad way. I was thinking the wings would resemble butterflies more realistically. Though I do like the new color (?) of stem. Roman Gladiator: Thank you for the reference, Yooha! This figure is definitely a retiarius. Similar to a few "light fighters" in past series (Barbarian), this guy is largely unimpressive because he lacks armor, a helmet, a shield, or a new weapon type. But his hair and printing still make him interesting for me. Corn Cob Suit Guy: Well, the face print is pretty unique. You can only do so many plain smiling faces for these costumes. Retro Spaceman: The helmet and gun are amazing. I'm going to have to get a bunch of these! Dance Instructor: I like her in the same way I like the Disco Diva; she just has so much personality! The hair makes it IMO, but the zebra-print tights and the water bottle make her even better. Battle Dwarf: His hair makes him look like a fire dwarf, which army-building would be pretty nifty for. Rocket Suit Guy: Cute. I feel like he's dressed that way for a science project! I also like the flag print, it would be great for a clubhouse-turned-spaceship... Surfer: He's more-or-less a mix of the previous two Surfers. The red on his shoulder looks printed as opposed to dual-molded arms. The surfboard design is amazing, and IMO makes him worth having. He legs look plain, which is a shame. He could have some side-leg print like the Mariachi, but that seems like wishful thinking,.. Gourmet Chef: I was hoping for a baker/hat with female hair! My only criticism is that I wish the hat wasn't so lopsided, but that's a minor quibble. The whisk is an excellent new accessory. The strawberry cream pie is a nice new variety. Hot Dog Vendor: He's a lot better than I expected. I love the new color of sausage and slushie! Elf Maiden: Different than I expected, but in a good way. Another shield is always welcome. The sword is meh, and may be switched to a longbow when I get her. Circus Strongman: Well within expectations. Though I can't tell - is the barbell one whole part? Yuppie: His outfit is very Don Johnson from Miami Vice. At first I thought the phone was a whole new mold, but now it does look like its made up of multiple parts. Pretty Nifty. Veterinarian: Cute bunny! Nice to get trendsetter hair in a new color. I also like her light aqua outfit. I do wish she came with some sort of medical device, a syringe being perhaps the most obvious and available choice. The Jungle Boy came with a knife and people thought he was going to SKIN the chimp... Highwayman: His shoulders are really broad. What is he wearing? Some sort of trench coat?
  4. OMG! The bunny! The serving tray! The whisk! The phone! The pug dog! The rocket suit! I like the Battle Dwarf's hair and beard combo. The Dance Instructor is hilarious. Who is the guy with the trident meant to be? And why is the mystery figure from the LBM pamphlet still a mystery?
  5. To be honest, Forest Maiden does give off the feel of female Elf. Her color scheme and accessories are closer to the S3 Elf than her intended counterpart, the Forestman. One could argue her ears are concealed in her hair... Speaking of which, I want this upcoming Elf to have her ears exposed, making her unmistakably Elven. I wonder if they will do two colors of plastic in the hairpiece, akin to the Faun and Goblin?
  6. Did you guys miss this post? I might be jumping the gun with everything Catanas has said, but something as specific as this makes me wonder if it's actually real... Another Surfer makes sense given what Itaria has hinted at. It would be a great opportunity to get some board shorts that use dual-molded legs so it doesn't look weird from the back. Chef also makes sense, given Itaria's clues. It was either that or a Doctor...
  7. Yes, please! Been wanting one of those for a while now... I wonder what kind of food and/or utensils she will have. Being a Chef, there are a lot to choose from, but I hope for something new along with the new headgear. And with that, we have a sense of half of the figures in Series 17: Hopefully we'll get a list or pictures by the end of the month. The wait is killing me!
  8. The 80's cell phone would most likely be a new part...It could double as a cool walkie-talkie. After searching it on Google, the term "Yuppie" means "young urban professional," and isn't strictly related to businessmen, so I think he could either be in work attire or stereotypical 80's street clothes. I think I would prefer the latter as suits haven't changed that drastically in 35 years. The term Yuppie is, IMHO, no less derogatory than Hippie, so I think the name could be used in the CMF line. Better than "80's Guy," which is the only other name I could think of.
  9. That would bring a whole new meaning to the term "brick phone..."
  10. I like that box color... seems like blue was being used for all the licensed and themed series for the past few years. Too bad we didn't get a reveal... I'm sure news will come soon though.
  11. Then it could be under some other name, but I have no idea what it would be... Considering the names come from Google Translate, something would have most likely been lost in translation. Because of this, we can't say for certain that they would be official names in the translated language. The shape of the shoulders isn't exactly like the current epaulet mold, but I have no idea what else they could be if the character is historically accurate...
  12. Minutemen weren't pirates. They were militia for the American Colonies... So he would be like the Revolutionary Soldier. A Highwayman is an interesting concept, but I don't think he would have something as militaristic as epaulettes.
  13. Hmm... Let's rethink this figure... The tricorne is 18th century, during the American Revolution. So what about a Minuteman? Unless it's a more specific historical non-pirate figure...
  14. Looks great! The only disappointment for me was that he has a darker green for his torso and legs compared to the husk of his corn-cob suit. I wished it all matched... I can't wait to see the other figures! :)
  15. With Google Translate, we have to consider both the origin language and the translation's language. I was using English-to-Italian before, but it might be something like Italian-to-Spanish. But I don't know Italian so I have no clue if I would be putting it in correctly... I'm hoping we'll just get the English list soon. Regarding the Matador - If we can get a Cute Little Devil, I think anything is possible... it would make for an interesting cultural figure, but I wonder how they would do the red cape... TV Remote Suit Guy and One-Man-Band Guy would be weird. One-Man-Band in particular. He would need a lot of molds, and they wouldn't be as useful as regular instruments, for sure.
