Wow, some really great ideas here!
But doesnt the "forest maiden" kind of count as female elf on this list? Just an observation.

Here are my suggestions:
Dragon slayer
Viking chief
Elvish swordman
Kingdoms lion knight
Kingdoms dragon knight
Crown knight

Keep in mind that I only skimmed the list, so some of these might already be up, and I didnt see them :)

Why would they make a Kingdoms Dragon, Kingdoms Lion, and Crown Knight when they all have already been made? Unless you're talking about some super special elite knight for each of those factions.

Because the series is discontinued. And the same argument would go for falcon knight, right?

Hey guys, With the way LEGO has lost every lawsuit that have filed for copyright on the pieces, they have been redesigning things like the horse. It makes me wonder if that is why the black falcon changed for the Joust set. If so, will we see those older factions as they were? I kind of doubt it. But this is a wish list, so wish away.

Having said that, and not looked at the list yet, so please if these are already there, ignore them.

Desert people, especially females in whichever form of clothing LEGO would like to do
A male Hawaiian dancer or a tribal dancer
A guy carrying a snare drum
ballerina
southern belle
vendor from a sports event..popcorn, peanut, cotton candy
falcon trainer
lego builder (these used to exist but I haven't seen one in a while)
puppeteer

Falconer, or Austringer, depending on the kind of bird, is the correct term. Sorry, falconry is one of my areas of expertise, so I had to correct that. ;)

Please keep the posts on topic of the thread. I understand you were correcting terminology that is important to you and while I appreciate that you have that knowledge, but this thread is about suggestions, not corrections.

K. They should make a guy dressed like a dragon.

I think that would be great especially if they had a Chinese dragon. And maybe if the headgear was made in which we could connect multiples together to make a chain. I think that would be pretty sweet.

Yeah that would be really cool! Or they could have actual seperate figures that you could connect, like maybe 3 for the chain and you could get multples of those three... Just to add variety.

Thanks for compiling, I would only have a few queries:

Beefeater--Series 5 Grenadier Guard - These are two very different looking soldiers. But as I reckon a beefeater is highly unlikely due to the fact that TLG made a generic 'Royal Guard', so is probably the closest we're going to see.

Heavy metal musician--Series 4 Punk Rocker - I'd say there is still potential in doing a Heavy Metal musician (long hair, face makeup etc). And I think Punk musician was also on your list.

Zookeeper--Series 5 Zookeeper - I'd also imagine that following the tradition of seeing male/female versions, we could still see a male zookeeper in future series.

I would also imagine the following have been 'ticked':

Admiral - s10 Sea Captain?
Butler - s9 Waiter?
Fashion model - s10 Trendsetter?
Geologist/Fossil hunter - s2 Explorer?
Insurance salesman - s8 businessman
Nutcracker - Toy Soldier?
Pioneer Girl - s8 cowgirl?
Soldier - royal guard? toy soldier? s10 patriot?
Surf rocker/Beach Boy - s2 surfer?
Troll - s9 troll?

But I guess it's all just opinion.

Wasn't that a cyclops? I wouldn't really consider a cyclops a troll, but like you said, all about opinion.

That's exactly why I counted it that way. But thanks for reminding me that the official name was Royal Guard, not Grenadier Guard.

Heavy metal musician--Series 4 Punk Rocker - I'd say there is still potential in doing a Heavy Metal musician (long hair, face makeup etc). And I think Punk musician was also on your list.


Should we make it more specific, then? I think the Punk Rocker looks pretty much like what most non-aficionados would consider a heavy metal musician. Maybe Glam Rocker? I know it's two different kinds of music but I think the looks are closer.

Zookeeper--Series 5 Zookeeper - I'd also imagine that following the tradition of seeing male/female versions, we could still see a male zookeeper in future series.


We kind of already have, in that the Explorer is dressed almost identically to the Zookeeper. Remove the pith helmet and maybe give him a more up-to-date head and there you go.

I would also imagine the following have been 'ticked':


You make good points on some of them, but for others, I think the thing being envisioned was different enough from what we got to leave it open. For instance, the Cowgirl is definitely not a Pioneer Gal, since she's wearing a fringed shirt and ten-gallon hat rather than a calico dress and bonnet. I'll make the changes that strike me as correct.

I was going to say that exact same thing. Dress and bonnet is what I think of when I hear "pioneer girl". But Andhe is from the UK, so maybe he's not familiar with "Little House on the Prairie" ;)

I do normally take advantage of some wiggle-room when deciding which items on the list have been fulfilled. For example, I decided that the Series 11 Grandma fulfills not only "Grandma" but "Crazy Cat Lady," since she comes with a cat and even has cat designs on her cardigan. But for something like "Soldier," I'm pretty sure the person was envisioning a modern soldier, or else they would have specified a time period and/or culture.
