Because there is nothing more Iconic (representing Easter), than a happy guy in a chicken suit, leaving an outhouse.

To be honest, If you invested heavily in the Chicken Suit Guy - it was kinda like putting all your eggs in one basket.

So...You're saying he's next on the chopping block...? Thanks for the tip!

Looks like an Easter promo or special

There goes market for chicken man

I wonder how hard this will be to get when it's released. I'm expecting them to be cleaned out pretty fast unless stock is really high on this. In any case, I just closed my position in Chicken Suit Guy last night and hope to pick up one for my collection when this is released.

I've got all my dogs in a basket with the hot dog suit guy...got about 30. I think I'm going to need to sell them pretty fast because of the new Friends Hot Dog Stand set coming out. I'm not sure if it's the same exact fig though.

If it's a give away, there should be tons. Either way, all TRU should have them so again tons...

I think bunny suit guy would be more iconic Easter.  I know chickens lay the eggs, but I doubt most people would name chickens if asked to name an animal associated with Easter. At least in the U.S.  For all I know there's an Easter Chicky in Europe that delivers baskets of candy.

Some people do get baby chicks for Easter. It's what peeps are based on.

I know, I'm not saying chickens are completely unrelated to Easter, but if you're going to create the first "Iconic Easter" set, I think the choice is fairly obvious.

It's always the Easter Pig and Christmas Goose in these parts.

The Friends one is a Hot Dog girl so it is different.

That seriously irritates me if that's true about the bunny suit guy and chicken suit guy. I take pride in my cmf collection and am extremely happy to have finally gotten them for a great deal after all of this time and now that their rereleasing them that just shoves it down the toilet. They may as well remake mr gold and the rest of the good/ rare figures since they already destroyed the collectibility of 2 of their greatest mvp's. 

When the CMF line first came out, TLG  stated that you would never find the same figures again in any other sets.  It's easy enough to do by just changing colors on things. The VIP set skipped this rule too I guess, although maybe those are a little different from the originals, and I don't know offhand if the head is different on chicken suit guy, so they'd probably argue that makes him different.  Either way, I guess they changed that claim somewhere along the way.

So the "sad" lesson learnt is that Lego will refresh just about anything.
