For next year's holidays:

 

Menorah golem.

A holiday clay golem (they are part of Jewish folklore, although not specifically the winter events).

Fireworks goblins (for New Years, of course).

Holiday Sophie lounging on a beach (because she flew south of the equator for the holidays).

Dragony creatures without wings. There a a bunch of "drakes" in D&d these days, wingless medium-sized dragony-not-lizardy things. It seems everything reaper makes currently is winged except for a Komodo dragon

Larger ones too would be nice to represent Glarung, or something. I don't see any "convertible" reaper dragons that I could de-wing easily either.

-Redcap (short and spindly long-bearded man with metal-shod boots and regular-sized scythe, wearing Santa-style cap)

-Bogeyman (Pathfinder-style preferred, meaning human-sized, unarmed but with claws, a large mouth full of sharp teeth, and possibly with subtle demonic spade tail.  Dressed like a chimney sweep is a plus.  Could even do it in the Pathfinder Miniatures line based on official Pathfinder art.)

-ratfolk adventurers (small-sized rat humanoids) 

-More adventurers dual-wielding kukris, especially female humans with light armor or no armor

-A vaguely xenomorph-like 28mm miniature (but not similar enough to cause legal trouble, hopefully)

 

Anyway, that's my wishlist. 

 

I wanted Krampus too, but I see it's available now. :-)

Since the Dungeon Dwellers line seems to be made for male and female versions of "classic" types of player characters:

 

A female dwarf fighter to go with Borin Ironbrow (battleaxe or warhammer)

A female human monk to go with Brother Hammond (quarterstaff)

A female elf ranger to go with Lanaerel Grayleaf (longbow or two-weapon fighting with longsword and shortsword)

A female halfling rogue to go with Gus Greenweevil and Stitch Thimbletoe (shortsword)

A female human wizard to go with Luwin Phost (quarterstaff)

A male elf wizard to go with Anthanelle (quarterstaff)

A male human barbarian to go with Jana Frostwind (battleaxe)

A male human rogue to go with Daschelle (shortsword)

There are a Male Barbarian and Female Halfling Rogue as new sculpts in the Bones V Dungeon Dwellers.  If it follows previous tradition, they'll likely get a metal release before the Kickstarter hits.

One word: FAT. 

 

There's a lack of fat characters that is borderline fatshaming. Except, of course, races who are supposed to be kinda fat and then its funny. Like, for example, Dwarfs, Halflings or Ogres. 

 

Understandably some classes must be less prone to that; a barbarian, certain types of rogue or ranger. But where are all the fat wizards and witches, all the fat warriors, clerics, etc? 

I collect minis so when I look at my collections what I see is the same body type over and over. Take inspiration on Volstagg or Bayaz, Mustrum Ridcully or Ursula!

@NyarlaBcn is correct...let's see some comfortably fat half-orcs and double-chinned lizardfolk! (The Jim Henson "Dinosaurs" might serve as inspiration.) Fwiw, Sister Maria is great and the Townsfolk series has some larger clerics. And if Stieg Brinegrog isn't a fat barbarian I don't know what is. Cadwalon is a fat rogue if ever I saw one. 

 

A Sergeant Jack Jackrum-inspired figure would be amazing for a rotund Fighter.

Yes! And Friar Stone, is actually the mini that inspired me doing that post. 

And besides a couple Ghoul Kings, it could be cool to go with the fat villain trope too, Baron Harkonen style.
