2017 looks like a big year for smurf fans! Which is fantastic news for those you who enjoy collecting anything related to do with the smurfs!
This week Schleich released their first sneak preview of the 2017 Smurfs. At this stage there will be six new figurines released in around January. As the flyer is written in German I have tried to translate the best I could into English using online translate tool. Apologies in advance if the translation is not quite right.
Reason to celebrate with smurfs!

#20795 Smurf with key
#20797 Smurf with Cloverleaf
#20798 Smurf with bunch of flowers
#20799 Bride Smurfette
At this point of time there has been no mention by Schleich if there will be any additional smurfs produced in conjunction with the release of the new smurf movie – Smurfs The Lost Village. At the time of writing the new movie is due to be released in at the end March in 2017.
It will be interesting to see if the actual figurines will end up looking like this or if these are just prototypes released by Schleich. Now smurf collectors like you and me will begin to speculate what smurfs will be retired at the end of 2016.
Keep on Smurfin
