Does anyone make a melodrama villain in top hat and cape (think Snidely Whiplash) in 28mm? This is what I think of while painting Mounties, I'm afraid.

Hmm, there are some top-hat-and-cloak gents in various "Victoriana" ranges. Look for "ripper" in Foundry's catalogue: link

or Reaper: link

…but they're probably more sinister than melodramatic.

Look to any range of mid to late 19th century civilians.
Various manufacturers make ACW civilians, and look at "townsfolk" from Old West lines. You need a top hatted gent in a frock coat. You can always add a cape you made yourself.
And you can paint on the mustache.

You might find something with Pulp figures
They have one in this pack that might work link
and maybe one of these to be tied to a track link
and possibly a Dudley Do right
