Here are some of mine:

Indiana Jones:

Tank
Price: $40-$50
Description: This would recreate the scene fromThe Last Crusade. It would come with the huge tank that would have some kind of firing mechanism. Could possibly have an interior or some way to make it move on it's own.
Accessories: Horse; machine gun
Minifigs: Indian, Henry Jones, Sallah, and that one Nazi who has that cheesy death scene, and Kazim (guy with rose)

Chamber of the Holy Grail
Price: $30
Description: It would be the bench where the knight sits down, a collection of various cups, and a small fountain. There would also be some device that you could place a normal Walter Donovan, spin or pull something, and out would come a skeleton.
Accessories: Many cups, sword, skeleton
Minifigs: Jones, Grail Knight, Donovan, Elsa

Battle on the Bridge

Price: $15
Description: Just a simple bridge and the side of the mountains. You could pull something and one side of the bridge would break off the mountain side. It also would include two alligators.
Accessories: Sankara stone, alligators, sword
Minifigs: It would only include Indiana Jones with open-jacket torso (same as the new mine chase) and Mola Ram. Basically, a way to get the figures at a cheaper price.

SpongeBob SquarePants

Icecream Stand
Price: $5
Description: This would be the small stand that the orange and blue fish walks around with.
Accessories: Icecream and other foods
Minifigs: SpongeBob (with icecream on his face), Patrick (same as SpongeBob), and the fish vendor

The Flying Dutchman's Ship
Price: $80 (considering the new pirate ship was $100)
Description: A green-glowing ship. Would have a tone of trans-green parts and other useful pieces. Would also contain the ripped sail and the giant anchor. The ship would have the Flying Dutchman's cabin, as well as the prison cell where SpongeBob and Patrick were locked up in.
Accessories: mop, bucket, swords, misc. items found on a boat, sock (only fans will get this)
Minifigs: SpongBob (scared face) Patrick, Squidward (same as Spongebob), Flying Dutchman (would have to be a completely new mold)
They're all wasted!

I's always thought that either Gerry Anderson's series or Doctor who, the early years would have been an interesting theme for Lego to come up with.

You have Thunderbirds, which has more ships, characters and ideas for sets than you can poke a stick at it.

You also have a few earlier themes which have some clever vehicles and characters in them as well like captain scarlet!

Not to mention an old favourate called Stringray which I though could be used to introduce a better divers theme.

As for the old Doctor who, that speaks for it's self, Daleks, Cybermen, Seadevils, yeti's. etc.

Not to mention TOM BAKER?

Also what about future-rama theme, characters like bender, Zoidberg, Kip, Zapp Brannigan, Leia, Scruffy, not-to-mention the heads?
This would be an excellent theme, and would sell to adults & children alike.
Note! Someone has already made a custom versions of these I suggest you's take a look at it.

How about a UCS Iron-Man?

For Indiana Jones, the tank from The Last Crusade really has to be top of the list. Could be along the lines of the Bat-tank that got released.

I've decided to add a few references to the show...

Spongebob:
Sandy's Treehouse:
Scene: A Big Tree in the middle. Possible transculent dome? A picnic table w/ chairs. A green Baseplate. Also, It would be nice to have a room in the tree with... Decorative Paintings of Patrick?!?!?!

As much as I'd love to see more Marvel Licensing like a UCS Iron Man or Some better Spidey sets, I don't see it happening anytime soon. Same probably goes for Doctor Who sets, old or new... unfortunately. I would pay a pretty penny for a UCS TARDIS.
The german tank from the Last Crusade is a great idea and so is the Staff Discovery set if it includes robed Indy and Salah figs! XD

I am also curious to see what the new deal with Disney could bring. I for one would love to see some sets based on TRON!
With Tron 2.0 in the works, it could be a great way to promote that picture just like Price of Persia.
Fingers crossed...

Tron sets would be a great idea. Personally, I'm rooting for more Jurassic Park sets, what with the rumors of JP4 coming out soon. Just re-release the dinos from 2001 with new molds for raptors and compys along with the compound and it'd be great. Star Trek LEGOs would also be great, although I think that might not be a good idea with Star Wars already out. ;)

Oh, Jurassic Park LEGO would be just fantastic.. *drools*

I just wonder if the fourth JP will ever be made.. It was - at some point, at least - planned to be released last year according to some sources, but now, with Crichton dead and all that, some say they'll just leave it. One can always hope, though.

You know what license I'd really like to see LEGO acquire? The Simpsons. I mean, most of the characters are already yellow for cripes sake (which means no need for special "flesh" colored pieces). There are so many characters that it becomes immediately obvious that most of the sets would be character driven. Speaking of which, most sets would probably be buildings or playsets, but there would be room for a few vehicles as well. Given that it is soon to become the longest running TV series ever (in just 2 years), surpassing Gunsmoke, I think it's long past time for this show to be given it's due.

I think the main (most popular) set would have to be the Simpsons home (built completely) which includes figs of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, and Grandpa. This set will probably have to cost around $100 (possibly even more) in order to get the level of detail and features that it should have.

Homer's car - A small set that just includes Homer and his car (and a plutonium rod). Shouldn't be much more than $10-$15.

Marge's car - Another small set that includes Marge, Maggie and the car. Again, somewhere between $10-$20.

Otto's Schoolbus - A fairly large set, it would include a bus large enough to fit figs inside. For figs, it should include Otto and all of the "important" children (Bart, Lisa, Nelson, Milhouse, Ralphie, the twins, some others I'm probably forgetting). Will probably cost $30-$40.

Kwik-E-Mart - Another fairly large building, it should be somewhat accurate. Minifigs: Apu, Nelson's dad (the criminal), Homer, that one old guy (forget his name, not Grandpa). Will probably cost around $50.

Police Squad Car - Sheriff Wiggam's squad car. Should include Sheriff Wiggam, his two deputies (I'm blanking on their names), and Ralphie. Probably will cost around $20.

Mr. Burn's Office - A simple playset that re-creates Mr. Burn's office. Should inlude Mr. Burns (obviously), Smithers, and Homer and should be around $20.

Moe's Tavern - Should be the third complete building (it's not that big). Figs should include Moe, Homer, Carl, Lenny, and the drunk guy (dang my crappy memory). I'd image this being about $40-$50.

Groundskeeper Willie - Should include Willie's small shack, his tractor, and of course, his minifig. Another small set around $20.

Skinner's Office - A small playset centered around Principal Skinner's Office. Should include Skinner, Ms. Crabopple (sp?), Homer, Marge, and Bart.

These sets really have the potential to be great, and could even introduce a few new pieces (Marge's hairpiece, anyone).

I don't really think that any of these new themes would make it. LEGO system is first and foremost for children. Sure it has AFOLs, but I don't believe the themes would be bought by kids. Also LEGO had a Jurassic Park theme, but it was pretty inaccurate.
