I know we've been letting this thread slide lately, but yesterday I had some downtime at work and came up with some more ideas for my personal wishlist. Before I send the updates on to Athos, would anyone else like to weigh in? Make sure to check against the master list on the front page!

TnB is reporting the list for the Simpsons, I'm not sure it will make any difference to the master list, but here it is:

Athos has kindly updated the front page with the current version of the list, including Series 12 entries. Time to get those greedy imaginations working again!

I don't think these have been made yet. Would be fun though:

Albert Einstein (please with tongue sticking out! :lol: )

Escaped Prisoner (beagle-boys-style, with some $-bills and a piece of the prison window with some broken out bricks)

Movie Director (perhaps Peter Jackson, would suit to the licensed themes :) )

Charlie Chaplin (monocrome of course!)

Here are my top 10 I would like to see made:

1. A modern or 20th-century era soldier. I don't think Lego has ever made an official one and I would love to see the parts they could come up with for that.

2. A bishop/priest type mini figure similar to the Santa figure that Athos suggested.

3. A modern fighter pilot. The helmet would be just awesome.

4. An electrician or plumber. Both could look stressed and be quite humorous.

5. A Canadian Mounty.

6. Norse, Egyptian, or other historical cultures' gods.

7. Swiss pikemen.

8. German Landsknecht.

9. A surgeon or other doctor.

10. Environmentalist.

Just FYI, AardWolf, we had a Surgeon in Series 6, and a Plumber in Series 9. I will add the other new suggestions to the list and re-post at a future date!

A few ideas:

Space Medic - White space armor with red "+" symbol and a first aid kit.
Comic Book Fan - possibly using a fictitious comic book and t-shirt based on a LEGO theme. (Galaxy Squad, Monster Hunters, etc)
Catperson - Using the tail from Scratchy (simpsons line) a new cat-ears hairpiece.

I still want "Zorro" on the list as "Zorro", not as whatever the editor put him on there as. Only the name Zorro instantly brings to mind Black suit, black hat, black mask, and black cape, with the swashbuckler's sword. Obviously they wouldn't call him Zorro, but at least lego would understand who I'm referring to. (Maybe some day there will be a new Zorro movie licensed by lego - but after Lone Ranger, maybe not!)

That would be me, Kev. Hi!

Whenever someone suggests a named person or character, I always include the name along with a more generic designation, for the very reason that LEGO uses generic names even for recognizable characters (e.g. Sherlock Holmes-->Detective).

But I heartily sympathize with your desire for the iconic Zorro look, so I have re-introduced him to the "Still Waiting" list along with the generic designation "Mexican swashbuckler."
