LEGO's made a policy not to make realistic weaponry or army sets. The only times they've made realistic weapons is when a liscensed theme calls for it.

thanks, i figured it be along those lines for not producing an army theme. as much as i would like to see army stuff, its not a big deal if we dont get anything.

i could always build customs anyways if i really wanted any. :p

I'm surprised nobody's asked for a G.I. Joe. It doesn't have to be war-related. But some of the characters would be sweet! Also, imagine a collapsable Eiffel Tower.
I'm probably cooler than all of you combined.

GI Joe is also owned by competitor Hasbro. Unlikely, and we already have an Eiffel Tower set, just build it and knock it over.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye.

In case you don't konw this is a ride in Disneyland and it would be cool if Lego made a set based on this ride. Thinking further they could even make sets based on Disney parks and rides.

I doubt if LEGO does anything with Rock Band, that they will be licensed. Most likely they would make a generic band set, possibly something like a Tour Bus, or even an UCS Guitar.

I really think that TLG should reconsider using the JP lisence, they could make a ton of these sets and they would make more money if they also had TT games make them a LEGO Jurassic Park game! It would tottaly work :/

also for video game series I doubt that LEGO would do something too spefic like Mario, Sonic, Metal Gear, etc. becasue if you look at it TLG is a business and I don't think they would want to ruin their relationships with Nintendo, Sony, or Microsoft when their games are universely released

I'd love to see JP sets, but after Crichton (God rest his soul :'( ) passed away I don't think it's going to happen. But how awesome would it be? Dennis Nedry's escape, Raptor compound, the Visitor Center, and the Rex cage. :D (Oh YES)

I don't think his death affected plans for JP4. Then again, plans for it have been stagnant for ages, so who knows.

Really? I heard they finally scrapped JP4. Either way, the working plot was horrendous

So, um, how long till Spidey and his other Marvel Hero friends are back in the Lego isle? Given the Disney deal with both Lego and Marvel...

You may now begin speculating.

I actually like that Lego Back To The Future Idea (posted somewhere on this forum)....the idea still seems kinda mind blowing.

I think that a Nintendo theme would be such a cool idea, because you could go so far with it. Sonic ends at Sonic, but with Nintendo it isn't just Mario, there is Donkey Kong, Zelda, Star Fox, Metroid, Pokemon and the list goes on. I don't know though, Nintendo has never been really big on releasing toys based on their games, but recently I've been seeing more toys like little Mario Kart RCs and such, so maybe my dream still has a chance! I'm a big Nintendo fan, so I think next to Star Wars that would be one of the best themes ever, but does anyone think that would be pretty sweet or am I on a whole different page?

LEGO Arwing? LEGO Samus' Gunship? LEGO Halberd? Sounds good to me!

I'm a fan of the Alex Rider series, and I was in Target the other day and purchased Crocodile Tears. That got me thinking. LEGO Alex Rider sets would be awesome! I've already thought of some sets!

Shark Battle (from Skeleton Key)
Set: Stalagmites and stalagtites that close at a push of a button, mechinism that opens a trapdoor.
Minifigs: Alex Rider (in scuba gear), shark, 2 CIA agents
Number of pieces: 200
Price: $25.00

Lego Blade Runner sets would be cool, such as the Police Spinner. In fact they did make this. http://gadgets.boingboing.net/2008/06/25/exclusive-oneofakind.html

I am also a fan of Alex Rider, and would love to see some LEGO Alex Rider, but I think that the line would interfere with the LEGO Agents line. I mean, I would really like to see the oil rig (from Snakehead) or Point Blanc (from...Point Blank)

Not sure if anyone has said this Licensed Theme. When I was little kid (in the 80's) my parents wouldn't buy me Transformers, so I'd love to see TLC sign up Transformers. I'd buy everyone just to make up for all those years of not ever owning a Transformer. :D
Yea, though I walk through the valley...
