and a centaur. :D

The Centaur doesn't seem possible (a horse body would be too big), but the others sound good.

If they made the centaurs body about the size of the one produced by Brickforge it would be larger than most CM parts but would still fit inside the bag.
In the next series they are making King Neptune with the new mermaids tail. The mermaids tail piece has a thickness of 3long x 4 bricks thick . A centaurs body would possibly be 6long x2 bricks thick. I'd imagine its the thickness of the bag that would be the main problem.
Sure the centaur body would be longer than most CM parts but thin enough to easily fit inside a packet. And I'm guessing that it would sell quite well. :D

Why not just buy a Centaur body off of BrickForge? That's what Alexandre Boudon did.

That would be a dead givaway if you're feeling for your minifig, even for a little kid! However, the merman's tail is too, so I see your point.

Then you'd want a few other big shapes in the series,Say three, that way you don't know which of the three it is.

I have suggested this once but a evil/dark elf to go with the the rest of the evil squad.
And then, updated classic wolfpack leader minifig.
New kind of head, with eyepatch and grin. And a hood and cape.
Dark Brown torso, with new wolf symbol.
Dark lets with sprintin of a coinbag and a knife.
Accecories: sword or knife and a new shield with wolf symbol.

A Dark Elf, a Teutonic Knight, a Valkyrie and an Einherjar would be cool.

I've added Teutonic Knight and Valkyrie to the master list, although I think the Viking Woman we're getting in a few months is as close to a Valkyrie as we can reasonably expect. For that matter, we already have a dude Viking--how could an Einherjar be differentiated? I'm picturing a ghost Viking...which would be pretty cool, come to think of it.

Any reason why none of my last suggestions made the cut?

Oh, whoops. Actually they did and I just forgot to mention it at the time. I don't want to re-post the list just yet because it's so long.

Okay, thanks! I was just curious. Thanks for doing this, I appreciate the work. It is very interesting to read the list, and imagine what these would look like as lego figures.

I went ahead and updated the list in the first post Karalora's most recent compilation.
