    gladiator hulk too, though maybe he doesn't count as a minifig

    Samwise Gamgee from LOTR as he was my favorite literary character. The Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi Doctor Who figures, the Spartan Warrior, and the Barbarian CMF. Tough to narrow it down. Probably could list a ton more.

    I find it curious that parents are evaluating the relative suitableness of LEGO themes.  Maybe just a different era?

    Chosing toys was frequently a teaching moment (quality, playability, etc.), that I now inflict upon my children.  
    This happened to me too. As far as I've been able to gather (from a very sketchy memory) my parents bought me and my sister one classic space set each when we were very young (#6842 and #6870). I never got anymore. Nor did I get any Castle. None. I only ever got Town sets for the rest of my childhood.

    I think the problem may have been that whenever my parents asked what sets I wanted I usually replied with "All of them!" and so they just took that as reason to select what they liked the look of.

    Luckily my mum decided she liked the look of the new Pirates theme in '89!

    I think they just wanted to make it easy - my brother got the biggest Space set they could get their hands on, I got the next size down Town set.

    I too now devolve the selection process to my offspring, after providing the correct parameters for a successful selection to them.
