What Minifigure Do You Wish They Made?

Out of all the Minifigure series that TLG has made, are there any figures that you wish they had made that they haven't?

    A whole Star Wars minifigure series (with the inevitable price hike). Or at least Star Wars characters with more detailing who need it. One can only dream...

    Just realised this thread is about CMF (didn't read the first post carefully enough). Oh well. Clearly I wasn't suggesting a full series of her. That would've been a bit repetitive...

    A Steve Guttenberg CMF collection. He is such a prolific actor that has been in some pop culture cinematic cornerstones! You could collect the Gute as he appeared in such hit films as Police Academy! Three Men and a Baby! Short Circuit!! I'd buy three boxes of that series right now if I could.

    Alien and Aliens... A Lego Colonial Marine tank would be sweet..

    A whole series of just ancient warriors. Or maybe not even warriors, since they've done so many individually already - just other kinds of character like farmers, traders, shepherds etc.

    I suppose what I really want is something like Medieval Market Village, but for the classical civilisations...

    A 'Spaced' set, in the vein of the Big Bang Theory set that already came out.

    If it included a tank for Mike to invade Paris with, or just some mini Jaffa Cakes, that would be a bonus.

    Now that they have the license: The Beatles! As they appear in iconic album covers:
    - Help
    - Magical Mystery Tour
    - Sgt Pepper's
    - Abbey Road
    (Obviously Yellow Submarine is already covered)

    Also, but not likely, Iron Maiden's Eddie from the different album and singles covers.

    Another one from a recently acquired license: Gremlins! Plenty to go with from Gremlins 2. Good luck feeling up these bags :-)

    Hello Kitty! OK... I'll stop now.

    Peanuts! They can do multiple subthemes too. I'd love the gang playing baseball and in Halloween costumes. A Snoopy Red Baron would be great.

    There are a number of Ninjago minifigures from the TV show that I'd love for LEGO to make: for instance, Captain Soto in his original pirate garb, Jay's parents Ed and Edna, Cole's father Lou, Zane's father Dr. Julien, Nya's outfit from seasons 3 through 5, and Skylor's outfit from Season 6. The chances of this happening are not totally far-fetched, as in the past few years the Ninjago theme has gotten better about introducing minifigures of character designs from earlier seasons or story arcs.

    It would be neat to see more LEGO City Undercover characters as minifigures, particularly Rex Fury, Natalia Kowalski, Frank Honey, Ellie Phillips, Chief Dunby, and Mayor Gleeson. Ellie is the only one who would probably need a new mold for her hair — Frank used a non-existent mold for his hair that was basically the classic Dumbledore hair but cut short in the back, but Han Solo's new hair mold from the Death Star set could be a close enough approximation.

    I would love to see better Bionicle minifigures than the ones we got in 2005–2007, possibly with builds similar to the 2014 Hero Factory Invasion from Below minifigures, and ideally of iconic characters like Tahu, Gali, Lewa, Kopaka, Pohatu, and Onua. With Bionicle Generation 2 now drawn to a close, it might be some time before there's any chance of that happening, though.

    I don't really collect the Disney range (though as it improves I'm tempted to change that), but I would like to see more villains and supporting characters from the princess movies as mini-dolls. Maleficent, Jafar, Gaston, and Hans could all probably use the existing mini-doll body types, but shorter or more heavy-set characters like Ursula, Maurice, the Sultan of Agrabah, and Cinderella's fairy godmothers might require more new molds.

    Additionally, it's weird and somewhat disappointing that there haven't been any System sets featuring characters from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pocahontas, The Princess and the Frog, or Mulan. The lack of sets or figures based on non-princess, non-Pixar movies like The Lion King, Big Hero 6, or Zootopia is a bit more understandable, but Snow White and the other movies I mentioned above have had Disney Princess branded merchandise from other toylines, so it's odd not to have LEGO sets or mini-dolls based on them.

    Elves hasn't really had any named characters in the webisodes or TV specials that haven't appeared in the sets, but it would be nice to get some stock character mini-dolls so Elvendale can be a bit more populous. There have been a number of elf stock characters as clients at the Starlight Inn, customers at the Secret Market Place, and spectators of a dragon race at the Dragon Sanctuary in the webisodes and TV specials. But there aren't any specific stock characters I'm longing to see in physical form; I'd just like to see a wider range of elf mini-dolls.

    I don't really follow the Friends story much, but I would like to see more mini-doll variety in that theme. For example, there still haven't been any male mini-dolls with glasses, nor "child" mini-dolls that could represent characters' younger siblings (which I know some of them have in the webisodes).

    And just in a generic figure sense, it'd be nice to see more traditionally black hairstyles (I'm talking race, not hair color) like corn rows or dreadlocks, and to see more of those that already exist like Finn and Andrea's curls from LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Friends used on yellow-skinned minifigures. The idea that the yellow-skinned minifigure is racially neutral is kind of dubious in practice (a lot of people have a hard time identifying yellow-skinned minifigures as representing black or dark-skinned people, and I honestly can't blame them), and perhaps one day "yellow skin as default" might need to change, but in the meantime, it'd be nice to for LEGO to pay that concept more than lip service so people don't think their idea of "racially neutral" means "non-black".

    Father Ted or The IT Crowd. We could have a Craggy Island set complete with milk float for Father Ted, and the office space for Roy and the gang, including 'The Internet'.

    ^ Surely the intention of the yellow skinned minifigs being racially neutral is that they do not and are not meant to represent black people. Just like they don't represent white people either, just people. Players are not meant to focus on race and skin colour in LEGO City, since there is only one race, yellow skins.

    It is down then to an individual's interpretation, projecting their views on LEGO, rather than LEGO's intention. I really hope they don't start doing reddish brown figures in City, for example. That is, unless they get rid of yellow skins completely, and do light flesh for white people.

    With The Lego Movie and The Batman Lego Movie both getting series, I'd imagine Ninjago could very well get one too.

    I'd like to see another wildcard like The Simpsons. Not sure what that is, but something iconic that could include a set or two as well. With the Midway and Sonic Dimensions sets, I wonder if an iconic video games character series would work - Mario, Link, Ryu, Ken, Mega Man, Metroid, etc. Obviously, there are licensing issues, but this is about dream series, not practicalities.

    I'd also love a series like S14 was once every year or so. Not necessarily Halloween-themed, but just themed in general. Maybe one year it's space specific, next time it's castle, next it's sports. Something along those lines.

    Nightmare Before Christmas. There's a fan base for it and plenty of opportunity for sets and minifigures. Other than that I'd love to see another Simpsons CMF Series to obtain most of the other characters e.g. Barney, Moe, Otto, Skinner, Agnes, Rod, Todd,  Jasper, Kent Brockman, Bumblebee Man, Lenny, Carl, Disco Stu, Duffman, Jimbo, Kearney, Reverend Lovejoy, Sideshow Bob, Sea Captain (plus others).

    Perhaps this is the intent, but to quote Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman", "intent and outcome are rarely coincident." The reason I brought up hair specifically is that there are loads of non-licensed minifigures with the sort of light-colored straight or wavy hair that is associated with white people, and hardly any with the dark-colored hair and tight curls associated with black people. If non-licensed minifigures are not meant to look either black OR white you'd think there'd be either less of the former or more of the latter.

    Moreover, imagine two people (one black, one white) try to make a sigfig using parts from the build-a-mini bar at the LEGO store. Which of them do you think will be more satisfied with the selection? Chances are, it'll be much easier for the white person to come up with something approximating their appearance than the black person. So even if none of those minifigure parts were designed to represent either of them, it's still a situation that heavily favors people with light skin and straight or wavy hair.

    Over the years I've heard plenty of people point to non-licensed sets or figures and ask "why aren't any of these people black?", but NEVER "why aren't any of these people white?" It's easy for people to digest the idea that a yellow-skinned minifigure can represent a white person, but much harder to digest the idea of them representing a black person. Can you even imagine if the Lando minifigure in #10123 had been yellow?

    Given that the majority of people I see at LEGO conventions are white, I don't think this is without its consequences. Of course, there's no doubt there are other factors that could influence this — a typical white household in the US is 16 times wealthier than a typical black household, and wealthier families have an easier time affording both the cost of LEGO and the cost of traveling to conventions — but I don't think the "racially neutral" default that LEGO defined decades ago helps matters.
