I suppose Silverish Grey is close to the Light Grey brick color. I add colored plates to my CMF bases that matches the series color and I hope LEGO doesn't throw out a series color that has no matching brick color or is hard to find. I heard a rumor that series 10 will be Gold, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do since I've already used Yellow.

Posted on a Brickset article are some links to the box colours. So yes, looks like 9 is silver, and 10 is gold.

The pictures are nothing to get excited about, just the standard prelim box shot with '?' on grey minifig outlines, and it's stamped confidential so I won't post them here.

Ok, you're kind of my hero now for that 'boarder positioning trick.  Yeah, silver and gold seem to be the colors, which has me excited.  I wasn't really thinking about it before, but 10 is a landmark and gold seems to signify that they know it/have something extra great planned :sweet:

Didn't LEGO already use silver?

And concerning the "series 10 has something special"-idea, maybe series 10 has the minifigures printed on the front, so you know which one you get. Or maybe there will be 32 instead of 16 minifigures.

I think after Series 10, they are going to start over, and start branding it to fit the upcoming CMF online game. They could stop the numbering and start doing themed CMF series, like a Space one, a Castle one, with each figure coming with a code for the online game. This will probably mean less figure per series, though.

Something about the gold makes me want to believe that Series 10 (the golden series) will have the minifigures that were really rare or wanted... But I guess we will just have to find out.

Thank you very much for this informtation! :classic:

In contrast to the majority here I really would welcome even some generic civilians in the CMF series. City does offer us an only very limited number of different civilian torsos. So some more variety would be great. Plus the caps used for the CMF look far better than the regular ones - with their more realisitic and detailed design and the printing on it.

Well, I've thought that, too.
Besides I could well imagine - since series 9 will be silver and series 10 will be gold - that TLG will stop the CMF line after series 10. That would really be a shame. But I fear that this could be real.

Klaus-Dieter

I agree with this too. A better range of civilian figures would be great. I have always wanted Lego to make a set of about 50 Civilian City figures each year, different than the ones before, with a range of ages or a different theme like Beach, Office, Summer, Snow, School, Music... I don't know why they don't as I am sure they would sell well as people would want to populate their cities. Or if they cannot do this, maybe with some accessories like trees, plants, different shaped doors and windows.
My Ideal CMF Series: (No figures with open mouths and no specific features preventing multiple use (e.g. name tags)!

(1) Hotel Bellhop (dark red uniform with 2 suitcases), (2) Amazon Explorer (with over the shoulder bag and new toucan mould), (3) Elvis Presley Impersonator (in classic white jump suit with microphone), (4) Frog costume (lime green colour with diver flipper feet), (5) Barbershop Singer (we'd all buy 4 for a quartet), (6) Peruvian (traditional Andean costume with tan coloured panpipes) (7) Zoo Keeper (dark blue dungarees, broom and new non-Friends penguin mould), (8) Halloween Guy (black torso and legs with skeleton print + pumpkin), (9) Air Hostess (light blue uniform but hat to allow varied hair colours), (10) Prisoner (traditional orange or grey uniform with arrows, plus ball and chain), (11) Violinist (evening suit - an orchestra army-builder + bald-head piece with white hair), (12) Tourist (new white Panama Hat, brown beard & sunglasses, Hawaiian shirt & camera), (13) Australian ('Steve Irwin' olive/dark green outdoors safari suit with new koala mould), (14) Gardener (green watering can & classic style purple/orange flowers + bald-head piece with brown hair), (15) Teddy Bear costume (light brown colour - generic without any bow tie or clothes, etc), (16) Brass Band (with new instrument like a tuba/trombone to help create an orchestra)

Looking at the past patterns (taken from Brickset news archive, so the dates could lag slightly), it's probably around a month and a half or a bit more before Series 9 hits the shelves somewhere around the world (Series 6 was first spotted on 15 Dec in the UK). The official release date is presumably sometime in January.

Series 8 was first found on the shelves around 16 Aug (official release date September), and we got the first pictures on 13 Jul, just about a month beforehand. The infamous Czech list of descriptions had been found a month before that, on 17 Jun. So compared to the last series, we are slightly "behind schedule" when it comes to the list, but not yet with the pictures.

I belive it's been confirmed that LEGO has at least 6 more series planned after S8. So it looks to me like they aren't stopping anytime soon! :wink:

When Kevin Hinkle (I probably got the name wrong) told us stuff like Ninjago will just have one more wave, on the shelves through 2013, there will be a new theme that will make us wonder why it didn't end sooner, Freinds is going strong, etc. It was quite a while ago. :wink:

We have uncovered a list of the upcoming Series 9 Minifigures due to be released at the start of 2013.
There are currently no pictures other than a picture of the box, but it is likely some will be revealed soon enough.
This series will have silver packaging and have set number 71000.


  • Alien Trooper
  • Chicken Suit Guy
  • Maid Marion
  • Heroic Knight
  • Cyclops
  • Mermaid
  • Fortune Teller
  • Dr. Splitz
  • Roller Derby Girl
  • Judge
  • Battle Mech
  • Caesar
  • Downtown Cop
  • Plumber
  • Waiter
  • Hollywood Starlet

Unlike previous series, this series appears to have many completely new minifigures, rather then just changed genders.

  • Dr. Splitz
  • Battle Mech

While the other can be taken seriously, these two are really not convincing me.
I believe this list is fake.

As we wouldn't use the term 'downtown' in the UK, I believe this is probably refering to a classic american city cop (peaked cap, truncheon).

As goes for most of this list, it sounds likes someones interpretations of what they've seen rather than an official list. As mentioned above Dr.Splitz is an existing character, as is Maid Marion (though probably in the public domain) and much likely to be 'Medieval Damsel/Princess' if it were to fit in with the current naming protocols (eg Ocean King instead of Poseidon/Neptune, Grandma Visitor instead of Little Red Riding Hood etc etc).
