lego are soon to bring out a minifigures series of 'blind boxed' characters. much like be@rbricks, each figure would come in a sealed bag, so you would never know what you were getting. Each figure comes with selected accessories, the characters themselves including: demolition dummy, forestman, cowboy, super wrestler, zombie, ninja, cheerleader, skater, tribal hunter, circus clown, magician, deep sea diver, robot, nurse, caveman, and spaceman.
i have always been a bit dubious of what i'd call 'new lego', where there are a lot of very specific bits and the minifigures have very complex faces, but i have to say, for his hair alone, the circus clown has to be my favourite. check out the minifigures site for all the characters.
