Thread: Dream themes.

  1. #1

    Dream themes.

    Now that Lego has moved into the movie tie in franchise dealio and seems to be doing pretty well out of it. What would you go for as a tie in theme that isn't beyond the reaches of practical achievability?

    For me, I've always wanted a James Bond 007 theme. Villains secret bases, cool cars, Q's lab, Submarine HQ with M. Space station, helicoptors (little Nell?)and planes, luxury yacht, Casino. that sort of thing.

    Bizarrely, I've always wanted a Lego zoo too. It's a childhood thing, Lego does cool animals and as of now there are plenty that could be used but there are no animals like lions, or tigers, or giraffes. horses could be repainted as zebras, polar bears cast in brown for grizzy bears, dogs painted as hyenas.
    it's just something I always felt was missing from the city theme. they've done it in DUPLO but in minifig scale it'd rock.

    The Hobbit and Lord of the rings LEGO would have been cool as an add on to the castle theme. Minus Tirith, Minus Morgul, The black gate, Lothlorien, Rivendell, Hobbiton, with the short leg pieces you've got hobbits and Dwarves, they could do a taller leg piece for elves and Sauron. Re-jig the Horntail dragon from Harry Potter and you've got Smaugor the fell beast. It'd be easy to come up with a Shelob and Troll. Even the watcher at the mines of Moria is achievable.
    A UCS Oliphaunt would be incredibly cool.

    For star wars I'd like a studio set. George lucas, cameraman, Rick McCallum, a bank of monitors, blue/green screen wall...... (I jest)

    Annyhoo, just throwing this out there, NON star wars themes. Go wild.

    Let's see.....

    I would love a Scooby Doo set, mystery machine, Scooby and the crew. plus as far as villians, re-issue some of the monster sets like dracula's castle, escape the wolfman etc, use the ghosts and skeletons from the castle sets.

    Superman: figures could be lois, jimmy, luther, superman, clark, daily planet

    Justice League: c'mon a lego Hall of Justice.

    Also with the Batman line, a history of the Batmobile series, various design include all the movies, perhaps a 60's TV version, a comic book version, etc.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Has Star Trek ever been done in Lego form (or I guess any other block form)?

    I don't think it has (but I don't follow the block world), but I'd be down for the ships of Star Trek being done. I'm not much of a playset guy as I like display.

    the playboy mansion could well tie in with my 007 idea. James does like his ladies.

    Has anyone used that 'build your own set' feature on the lego site? well I should say, has anyone downloaded and used the software to design their own set? I tried it and I'll be damned if I can make anything with that. There are no interesting pieces you can use. just boring basic bricks. Very disappointing. I wanted to build a big set but it wouldn't let me.

    That thing is a joke. I looked at it once. Lego supplies the "bricks" for a couple of different "sets." Then you put it together how you like and buy it after that. You're suppose to make what they told the is meant to be. So if the "set" you pick is the car, you are suppose to build a car. Like I said the whole thing is a joke.

    I don't really have a "dream theme." The closes I come is I'd really like to see Lego return to it's own themes. I'd love see real Castle and Pirate again.
