Some interesting details have come out of Eurobricks from Just2Good regarding Series 13 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71008). We already know that they will be coming out in January but there may be some hints of one of the minifigures that will be in the set.
As you can see above, there is a Director minifigure, which we haven’t had before, and Just2Good suggests that he could be from Series 13. The image was from the Toys R Us website and there is also another promotional artwork from taken at a Toys R Us store (below). Although it is still pretty early to speculate on who will be in Series 13 considering that Series 12 isn’t even out yet, it may seem that the Director could be new since almost everything on the minifigure is new such as the face printing, torso, and accessory.
There are also other minifigures in the images but they seem to be pretty plain and not unique enough, minus the Tiki Warrior from Series 11, to be one of the special ones to be included Series 13. What do you guys think? Could Toys R Us have inadvertently revealed a minifigure from the Series 13 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71008)? We will soon see as more details of the 2015 sets slowly come out in the next few months.

As we reported last month, there was a rumor that the Series 13 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures line could be based on The Simpsons characters. Today, Nerdly.co.uk has confirmed that rumor to be true. In May 2014, Series 13 of the Collectible Minifigures line will be based on 16 Simpsons characters including Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Apu, Chief Wiggum, Moe, Itchy and Scratchy, and a few more of the animated TV show’s characters will be released. Nerdly also reports that the only LEGO system set to be released in the first quarter of 2014 will be the Simpsons House on 742 Evergreen Terrace which will be available direct-to-consumers at LEGO brand stores and on [email protected] in April 2014. Finally in May 2014, there will be a special LEGO Simpsons TV episode, very similar to LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace and The Empire Strikes Out. The Simpsons’ director David Silverman has also confirmed the news via Twitter:

A couple of weeks ago, we reported that The Simpsons were indeed confirmed for release sometime in the future. Today, All About Bricks is reporting that the Series 13 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures line will be based on The Simpsons and future Collectible Minifigures releases will be licensed characters. They have also noted that the there will be no sets but just minifigures to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the show. This news is a total opposite of the rumored sets that was supposedly being released this winter.
Let’s think about this for a minute here. If this is true, it will be a dramatic change from LEGO especially for a new theme. I’m not sure if it will be profitable with only minifigures because people most likely will not be looking for multiples of the same character. We don’t need an army of Bart minifigures, do we? It was already announced that Series 12 will be based on The LEGO Movie but that is to coincide with the huge movie event. For the company to create just a line of minifigures for a new theme is unheard of, aside from the Collectible Minifigure series.
Although these are just rumors, All About Bricks have been correct on many other things so we will see if this whole Simpsons thing is true. Stay tuned for more Simpsons news as they come.
Update: The rumors are now confirmed. Read more about it here.
