Yes, that's the one I was referring to - the zookeeper with a chimp. I guess the lack of tail should have been a give away.

I do wanna see the toy story lanky body parts show up again... maybe they can redo the basketball line and make a yao ming

Yeah, by "down the line" I didn't necessarily mean in this line (Minifigures), but just in the LEGO future in general (although that said, I personally would not mind having an actual gorilla as one of the minifigures in a future series of Minifigures). And yeah, I also agree it would be good to use the longer arms for one (though I think if you did that, it wouldn't need to have the stubby legs as well).

This is the first time the gladiator's face has been visible. Pretty fearsome! Also, we can now see clearly that the dragon suit guy or whatever you want to call him has both a helmet and a neck accessory that includes his tail, meaning he can turn his head-- something I'm very grateful for.
Also, something I want to point out that my brother noticed recently-- many Collectible Minifigure outfits, including Series 5 ones, are available as costumes in the LEGO Ninjago iPhone app. The Cleopatra fig is called "Egyptian Royal" there, but no idea if that'll end up being the finalized name. I can't remember other names at the moment, but he can remind me next time I see him.

That male snowboarder could be great for my snowboard mad sister and her snowboard mad boyfriend :)
And that mobster is excellent.
Even the detective and zookeeper are starting to grow on me (and may find their way into my collection :)

Poseability would be wonderful, yes, but then it would probably make it as expensive to produce as a whole additional human minifigure (or getting close to it, anyway). It's cool that some of the minifigures already come with additional "minifigures" of their own, even if they're just non-articulated, single-piece critters of the sort we're all so familiar with; in the zookeeper's case, it's an entirely new figure she comes with (as opposed to the traditional LEGO bat, scorpion and snake included with other figures in the theme up to this series), and it's printed, too. Articulation would really be a bit much to expect for a figure that's considered just an "accessory" for another figure, even though I for one obviously like to think of it as a figure in its own right.

A huge Lego - this theme is getting better and better......a lumberjack...when do we start singing ?
I have heard though series 5 might not be out until September from one of my retail sources.
Anyway, I can't wait to get some of these figures for my son to start working on !
