Or even a Lloyd or one of the other ninja.
There are five figures there, and my brother speculates that one of the factors in how they were chosen might be having one to represent each decade. The one on the far left appears to be Pixal from the current decade, and on the far right we see a blue spaceman (1984) and what I imagine is a classic policeman (1978). So the less recognizable red and white figures in between could represent the 90s and 2000s, respectively.
I have some doubts about whether they'd be allowed to include a Star Wars character in a non-Disney-licensed set. The only time I distinctly remember seeing licensed and non-licensed characters in the same set was in #70815, and that was possible because the rights to The LEGO Movie brand as a whole are shared between LEGO and Warner Bros. I don't think they'd be allowed to put Batman or Darth Vader in, say, a Creator set.
That wouldn't necessarily reflect the history of the minifigure to the same extent that having both older and more recent themes does. In a lot of ways Ninjago has been one of the defining themes of the past decade.
CMF S1 Nurse would be an odd choice. I wouldn't consider that figure particularly iconic, or significant.
Still hard to tell what the other two figures are, just that they're white with brown hair and red, as we saw in the previous pic.
