I love the promenading couple; looks like I might be getting my first set of Bavarians.
I do sometimes buy a set to get one or two figures if I want the figure enough, so I'm happy to get these civilians however they come. I notice though that there are some guys on Benno's who are really hoping that these civilians will be released in a dedicated set.
Yes there is a lot of speculation as to how they will be delivered and opinions on how they should be ideally released. I've put in my contribution on this debate earlier in this thread and in another thread. Unfortunately, Strelets seem to be being a bit tight lipped about this and have so far not responded to my direct questions. All part of the fun I suppose but I'm finding it a bit frustrating. I expect there are also people who never wanted the bonus Streltsi and don't want civilians at all and would prefer more poses in the set.
