While fans scramble (fight in some instances!) to grab the current LEGO Batman Movie minifigure series, it looks like an image has appeared in the wild (Hong Kong) of the highly anticipated corncob man minifigure. Some eagle eyes spotted the image over on a LEGO fan’s Facebook account (link here). There has been some chatter for a while over on Eurobricks that corncob man would be one of the LEGO collectable minifigures from series 17 (71018), scheduled for release May 2017.
If like me you’re a fan of the non-themed collectable minifigure series then I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with corncob man. The new mold piece looks awesome and really captures the juicy looking corncob! Looks like hotdog and banana man will be getting company! For those interested current discussions over on Eurobricks suggest we will also be getting a circus strongman, butterfly girl, battle dwarf and hot dog vendor. Other members of Series 17 are still subject to cryptic hints and haven’t been openly discussed yet.
