So, found a fig. On the lip of the base pretty sure it reads "Historicon 20??"
I can't read the date.
Seems to be a butler holding a pillow with a puppy on it.
Ring a bell with anyone?
Curious with the year?

Try "Historicon 2015." The "butler" "puppy" and "pillow" are in fact the British infantryman and pig in a backpack from the movie "Waterloo." If you look closely at the back of the base, you'll find "defend a hopeless position" on it.

That's dumb luck on my part, by the way. I actually had the figure on the table for a game when I checked out the message.

Thanks Robert.
Just happens I have an unopened one in my collection I just found.

For a second, I thought that said, Promo Fig SAUCE…
