If true, this is really exciting. A few of these sound intriguing, whereas a few sound a bit bizarre/uninteresting...

Most of these don't even rise to the level of plausible, IMHO.

Mr. Freeze? Heh...
Let's wait for an actual confirmation of these before yelling around it's fake,
although the rumored inclusion of Mr. Freeze pretty much gives that away. Stuff like that won't happen in the minifig series.
Chinese girl with a snake? What's that for? Would make me think of something along the lines of India, not China.

Seems suspect IMHO. Mixing of licensed theme and CMF is highly unlikely.

Well, if this rumour would happen to be a true, obviously this time the rumour would be based on someone seeing a low resolution picture of the figs, not a list of their names, and describing them as he/she saw fit. There will certainly never be actual Mr. Freeze in CMF series, but there could be some figure (space alien again?) that resembles him close enough.* And if the picture would be of low enough quality (we've seen such leaks before), the "Chinese Girl with snake" could be an ancient Chinese engineer with a firework, or what ever. But no, I'm not trusting this rumour yet. :tongue:

* Or the rumour starter could have seen unassorted pictures of not-yet-released figs and just wrongly assumed that upcoming Mr. Freeze is part of the CMF.

Maybe "Mr. Freeze" is a new Ice Planet 2002 type guy. That would be awesome.

If any of those are true, they have certainly lost a lot in translation.

Isn't this a little early? And also, many of these sound a little...strange. Hope this list isn't true.

Or maybe it's a Jack Frost-type figure, but the person who saw it wasn't familiar enough with the character to give it its proper name.  It would fit in, since S9 is due out in the middle of winter.  And the other figures seem at least plausible.  But still, at this point it's very hard to say how true any of this is.

Mr Freeze certainly could be an abstract ice superhero or a snowman. But...

This simply makes no sense, although the inventor sounds good.

Could be possible? The CMFs are partially meant to tie into themes, correct?

Chinese girl w-snake = Legends of Chima
Mr. Freeze = rumored arctic theme
Race car driver = Speedorz

The others don't sound so offbeat compared to what's been made so far, i.e.; babysitter w-baby is similar to a sleepyhead?

I vote yes, solid, done deal. What's up for Series 10?

The elf part does throw one off a bit, but I might be able to imagine some sort of cossack/mongol type of warrior with a sword, a royal guard hat and a pet hawk?

I got to admit that the person who originated this list, if it doesn't hold any truth, has a pretty wild imagination.

Wow, you guys really take these names very literally don't you... This is probably somewhat close to the real list (give or take) but somone just misinterpreted. Once again, I'm sure we'll all be pleasantly surprised when these turn out to be real and some of the names were just mixed around a little. :hmpf:

After all of the leaks on EB, I have come to just sit and wait because I have been surprised before (Olympics figures anyone?). That photo quality was terrible, yet it was true.

Series 8 had a vampire listed and it became a manbat, so definitely lost in translation.

Same goes for this proposed series 9 list. A lot could be lost in translation or descriptions are misleading. Or it could be a bunch of shenanigans. All of the words I wanted to use in place of shenanigans weren't the proper usage (ballyhoo, tomfoolery, hullabaloo). Anyway...

I don't mind this series 9 list, but it does make one wonder how much of it is accurate, if any. So time to wait for the pictures or an official leak.

After some thought, I wonder if I should be more inclined to believe this list only because it sounds more like someone trying to interpret a bunch of unnamed figures with vague descriptions, i.e. if it were more specific (someone making a list off of a bunch of wishlists) it may look more like a hoax. Plus it has a sports figure.

But! I'll be glad for some pictures to prove this wrong.  :wink:
