I've always been thinking wouldn't it be awesome if Lego put out Call of Duty legos or other video games like Mario and stuff.

I think a Spartan/Roman/Greek/Hoplite line would be great. I think those would be the best. Especially since Lego now has the molds for the helmets from the Spartan figs and considering how well the little fellas sold out. (I haven't managed to get one :'( )

Did a quick search of old posts and saw that Darth Kraven and Inzane suggested a TRON theme a while back...I echo it. I think it's a property that would be perfect in brick-form. Check out this awesome newly revealed concept art via io9.com and I'm sure it'll set off some lightbulbs (pun intended) for MOC possibilities. Get your trans-blue/red/yellow on. I know that Disney's making a hard push for this as a franchise with the new movie, new animated series, and some TRON-related attractions / window-dressings (and possible pavilions) in their amusement parks. LEGO & Disney...make it so.

Just came back from TRON: Legacy, and my suspicions were validated...this movie would make for some GREAT Lego models!!! (Not to mention the possibility of some pretty cool features/pieces, eg light-up action to the max, round 1x1 tiles for discs, cool minifig helmets.) If only I had more transparent pieces to MOC away. Heh. My brother is an "Imagineer" at Disney who's next door to their product licensing folks. Been bugging him to put that in peoples' ears over there. If they did it for Prince of Persia of all things, why not TRON? With the animated series and all coming out, they'll get us nerdy AFOL's who've held the original TRON in a special place in our hearts (right next to Star Wars) as well the new younger fans they pick up this year. Oh well, just had to geek out on the forums.

Of course, my giddiness for TRON Lego is by no means new or original. Just thought I'd share some related links to MOCers doing their TRONified thing.

I would absolutely love a TRON theme. Here are my ideas.

Lightcycle Battle: 8.99 Comes with Sam and Clu with 2 lightcycles and the discs.

Quorra's Light Runner: 29.99 Comes with Sam and Quorra, the lightcycle, and the discs.

Flynn's Arcade: 44.99 Comes with Sam, Alan, and Sam's motorcycle. Inside, there are a bunch of arcade games, and the tron game that leads to the hidden room with the lazer thing.

End of the Line Club: 49.99 Comes with Castor, Gem, Sam, Quorra, Kevin Flynn, Clu, two Clu Henchmen, and two DJ's. Comes with bar tables, couches, Castor's private room, and the elevator.

Disc Battle: 14.99 Comes with Sam, Tron, one Siren, and two enemies.

The Hideaway: 24.99 Comes with Sam, Quorra, and Kevin Flynn. Also comes with bookshelves, three rooms, dinner table, and couches.

That's really about it for me...

I think there should be more Tron sets from the 1982 movie. For example:
Lightcycles-Contains a blue and a yellow lightcycle. Comes with Sark and Tron. ($20)
Recognizer-Comes with Kevin Flynn and Ram. ($30)
Clu's Tank-Comes with Clu and Bit. ($30)
Discs of Tron-Comes with 4 gladiators and Tron ($10)

Okay, all kidding aside, my point is that LEGO is perfectly capable of putting lights in their creations if they want to. Really, though, it's beside the point, as I think the ability of the creations to "glow" is one of the less important things about a Tron line.

While a Tron line could produce some interesting sets and pieces I don't think it would be a good money maker for LEGO, there are only so AFOLs and misguided grandparents to buy the sets. The Tron action figure/toy display at my local Target and Walmart looks like it's sat untouched since they put them up.

I decided to throw this out there as a 'possible' theme Lego could do.

Lego Lone Ranger!

If the POTC and Cars lines prove profitable, Lego might like the idea of continuing licenses with Disney. As this film is due out (I think) next year, it seems like it's a possible canidate for Lego to consider. I certainly wouldn't mind some western themed sets with nice colors and pieces. I'm sure Lego would make some nifty minifigures too.

I'd much rather see a generic/original LEGO western brand. I feel that the more LEGO goes down the route of branded/ licensed theme, the more LEGO loses its identity. The only thing that licensed sets would bring to LEGO is more flesh minifigures- this is the only positive I can see from these potential licensed sets. Original, non-licensed sets are cheaper too! I'm pretty happy as we are with Star Wars and the handfull of licensed lines we have at the moment, so I'm afraid that there really arent any more licensed sets I'd like to see. Jus' sayin'. Sorry!
-Although I do admit that after seeing the Tron movie did motivate me to pick up my LEGO as soon as I got home. I dont think Tron is a particularly suited candidate for Lego representation; not only did it flop (a little) at the box office, the designs of the vehicles etc aren't suited to be represented in minifigure scale, at least with the current range of bricks we have at our disposal; look at the wheels of the light cycle for example. The light up brick is a good idea though, so I take my hat off to you, Flynn! Lego would have to produce a lot of new moulds to make this a reality. It may be suited to a technic line though.

I dont mean to sound negative, but having grown up with LEGO, I might be a little 'traditional', other than Star Wars and maybe Indiana Jones, the original sets are the way forward for me!

and @theone: check out the 10217, you get a handful of glow in the dark bricks for construction of Bourgin & Burkes! And there's always the classic ghost minifig!

Majortom, I wouldn't mind a generic western theme either! and I understand your fear with licenses. I too have felt the horror that Lego might be losing it's identity with licensed themes.
However, I really don't care about what kind of western theme we'd get. As long as we would get one I'd welcome it with open arms! ;)

Lego Marvel?

Postby Italian Samurai » Thu Jun 16, 2011 2:50 pm

Now that Lego has a deal with Disney, and Disney owns Marvel, does anyone think it's likely we'll see the return of Lego Spider-Man (Especially with the Spider-Man reboot movie coming out soon), and possibly some other Marvel licences? (I would personally LOVE to see a Lego Iron Man or X-Men line)

More Marvel based Lego sets is dependent on whoever is currently licensed to produce merch for Marvel. If Megabloks still holds the Marvel license, and signed for several years, then they still have it. Disney gaining ownership of Marvel didn't render licensing contracts void. Likelihood of new Spider-man sets: Unlikely. I must admit though, I wouldn't mind having Martin Sheen, Sally Field, and Denis Leary minifigs. :D

I just want Marvel sets based on the comics, not necessarily the new films (Thor, X-Men: First Class, Captain America), but like how the early Lego Batman line was based off the comics (Until Dark Knight came around).

Me, being more of a DC Comics fan, would like to see a line based on the entire DC Universe. It's a perfect time: The Green Lantern movie, DC Universe Online, and the upcoming Batman: Arkham City game being starting points....
