This may be a dumb question, but why are people so eager to see the return of the Black Falcons? Is it just because the shield design was cool, or is there another reason?

I think there are a variety of reasons. Nostalgia is one. They are clean, good figures. They were readily available for a long period of time so people have an okay army of them and would like more. Their color combination is nice, not busy. Anyone wanting to build a decent army is wanting to fill their army. Black falcons and the scorpion knights are my primarily factions and I'm good with that. Does it mean I need/want more black falcons? I kind of need shields and flags, but I'm willing to pay the price for them on bricklink rather than see a new version of them come out. Although, I am one of the few that wanted to see yellow black falcons to match the yellow shields that existed. (And to any of you who are going to tell me naked knights with a big black falcon tattooed on their chests would be dumb...how about you get your mind out of the whole nakedness and think about color coordination.)
But I don't think they will return. Like I have wondered many times, as everything that is over the age of the copy right has been getting a re-model, I can't see old factions coming back.
I kinda think that the knight in kingdoms knights joust set counts as a falcon... He has the shield (although slightly different) and the colors... Only thing is he has a dark green plume in his helmet instead of a white or black one.
