Lego Minifigures Series 8 - The New Characters

Updated on July 13, 2012

In September 2012 Lego Minifigures Series 8 are released. As the date nears speculation about what the new characters will be is rife. So today we are going to give you as many details we can about the forthcoming minifigures and then give you a few ideas of what characters we might get in series 8.

As you can see from our little video, we have already seen some fantastic characters released. With the imminent release of series 7 we are all set for some great new figures from Lego. Although we only gave you a small taste of the characters in our video, Lego have brought out a real wide range of minifigures and there have even been a few unexpected ones in there. But it’s series 8 we are really interested in today.

Ideas For Lego Minifigures Series 8

So now all the sixteen new minifigures have been announced and as you can see we also have a picture up of them. People are now talking about a series 9 and Lego have confirmed this will be coming out in the future. If you look around online you will see various rumours floating around as to what new figures we are going to be getting are. As well as the new figures we also know that the new bags will be black and as always they will not be see-through so you won't know what figure you are buying.

So here is the list of new figures for series 8. Santa his red suit on and a sack, a vampire bat, an ancient Thespis holding a skull, a skier, a new red cheerleader with pompoms, an evil female alien, an evil robot with a ray gun, a diver with a harpoon, a football player, a pirate captain, DJ, cowgirl with a lasso, trader carrying a briefcase and newspaper, boy in a Bavarian outfit, a conquistador and a fairy with little wings. These new figures look like a decent mix of some very good new ones and some that are a little bit to similar to older ones that we have already seen before.

More Lego Minifigures

Lego minifigures have of course been going for many decades. It is only in recent years that the company decided to make them a little bit more collectable by bringing out actual series’ of the figures. Some people don’t stop simply at collecting the minifigure series’ we are seeing they also look to collect figures from various Lego sets. With Lego having so many different franchises all running at once there are literally hundreds of figures you can now collect. These range from Star Wars figures to Pirates of the Caribbean. You can also get characters from Harry Potter, Batman, Superman and lots more wonderful Lego sets.

Later in the year Lego are bringing out Lord Of The Rings Lego sets and this will give us even more minifigures to collect. In the coming years we are no doubt going to see various new toys with lots of different minifigures. It is unclear if we will see more official minifigures, there has of yet been no mention of a series 9, but due to the success of the previous series’ there seems to be no reason why Lego would not keep these toys running.

So although we don’t know what to expect yet from series 8 it certainly is fun to speculate. If you have your own ideas as to what we might be getting feel free to post at the bottom of this page. Or if you have an official source as to what we are going to see then again please let us know. For now though all we can do is wait and see what new surprises Lego has in store for us.
