Yep, the Royal soldier is what I want to get the most. *envisions collecting a horde of them and having a Waterloo or Crimean War MOC* B)

Toys r Us should have them. As will the LEGO Stores, likely Wal-Marts, and Targets, depending on where you live.

GREAT! We have all 3 stores in our area! I'll have to keep a lookout for them. Thanks, Napoleon!

Always a pleasure!

I agree with shmails; I really hope they don't make another X Games dude; I have no interest in them whatsoever. More Napoleonic and Castle, please! ;D

I wouldn't mind if LEGO made some more Civil War dudes, especially Confederate ones. I'm making up my own small ragtag group of CS troops, which can be quite the challenge!

Seconded! I think they would only make Union ones due to politics, but let us not go down that road. ;) They'd be more likely to make a US cavalry collectible fig, like a 2011 version of the fig in your avatar. What I'm really hoping for is an actual Napoleon fig; why not? Even if people know nothing about him, he's still a very recognizable person. The other I'm hoping for is a mafioso; the Humphrey Bogart kind, not the modern kind that are just thugs who dress like bums. |D

Yep! There is so much ground that LEGO hasn't covered yet in the relm of special collectible minifigs, especially in regards to world history. But, who knows what surprises await us down the road!!! We can only hope!

Tis true, but, since they are trying to stay "generic" and "world-cultural", to have more selling power ... specific history items will be less popular to the masses.

I hope we eventually get a Watson. Here are other figures that I hope they make in future Waves:

1: Space Hero (Think Prince of Space ;) )
2: Super Hero
3: Super Villain
4: Fantasy Hero (Like that guy in LU)
5: Fantasy Villain (With a non-visor version of Vladek's helmet. <v> )
6: Warrior Princess
7: Elf Princess (Dumbledore's Hair with Elf Ears. X) )
8: Gamera
9: Gillman
10: Igor
11: Sailor Moon type heroes and villains.

And just one more thing. A "Homicide" detective. X)
