REALLY great characters (and lots of them), most of the basic bricks are already there(log bricks for the roman forts, viking helmets,lng white beard, egyptian pieces..and so on). It would be cross theme, as the Gaul village could easily fit into castle. Roman soldiers would open a path for a history theme. I would love it... Wouldn't you?
That would be interesting, but I don't think lego figures could capture the stark variety in size and shape of the characters. Asterix and Obelix would be practically the same size.
EDIT: And one more thing. Apart from the US soldiers in the Wild West line (and any others that may escape my memory), TLC seems to avoid creating lines with military ties to specific nations. Roman soldiers, no matter how long ago they lived, are still connected with the modern nation of Italy.
