I was thinking of something similar, but in black and silver and without the poncho. Like these guys:

I just realized that "Black Watch highlander" should probably be removed from the list, since we already have a generic Highlander. For some reason, I was thinking the Black Watch was an elite fighting unit or something, but I remembered that it's a tartan. Unless LEGO releases a Scottish clans theme (which would actually be pretty awesome), specific tartans are probably too much to hope for.

Lamp Warrior. 'Nuff said. :eyebrows:
If I were to make something out of LEGOs, I would probably use LEGOs. Pretty advanced stuff going on up in my head.

I don't know what a Lamp Warrior is either. Apparently Throndor hasn't said 'nuff after all, :eyebrows: or no :eyebrows: .

On the wishlist. Not released yet. Sorry, should have made that clear. 8)

Also, more suggestions:

* Australian Bush Ranger
* 50's Greaser
* Competitive Swimmer
* Track & Field Athlete
* Thai dancer

I'm kind of surprised we haven't seen a fireman yet, what with Lego's fondness for firefighting sets.

What about a fashion model or a director?

I'd also like to see a cowgirl to go with the cowboy and a spacewoman (or maybe a sexy green alien woman) to go with the space man.

Maybe a G-man to go with the gangster?

An opposing team baseball player.

And another cheerleader with different colors, so I can re-enact Bring It On.

Maybe that's why we haven't seen one. I've noticed that none of the collectible figures are character types that would be found in any currently running theme. The closest one is the State Trooper, a distinctly different kind of cop from the municipal cops in City. We're getting a dwarf in Series 5, but the Castle theme that had dwarfs has ended. The Ninja is a traditional generic ninja rather than the quirky named characters of Ninjago. And so forth.

I think a number could be combined further (eg zulu warrior and chief), or at least are unlikely to be produced due to too much similarity to previous figures (eg centurion and spartan? Just my opinion) but great work in taking the time to do this.

I'd like to see:
- 1920's style banjo player (straw boater hat, box tie, banjo)
- Motorcycle daredevil (think Evel Knievel, star-spangled jumpsuit and crash helmet),

but most of my other ideas are already on the list.

I guess we can scratch another 7 off for series 6 now as well...

I kept the Zulus separate because we got the Indian chief distinct from the regular Indian.

For Series 6, I assume you're referring to this? Do we know that this is authentic?

Uh,
A: I wouldn't trust that, until we know for sure, and
B: Don't you think this counts as a leak? :? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Back to suggestions, however, I would also like to see Dr. Watson, you know, to accompany Sherlock from series 5. :mrgreen:
