Have you seen some of the sets that have been coming out of the LEGO Ideas program? (Formerly known as Lego Cuusoo, for those who’ve been following it for a while.) There’s a fantastic Ghostbusters set with the Ecto-1 and Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore. You can build a Tardis with the Eleventh Doctor, Twelfth Doctor, Clara, a Weeping Angel, and two Daleks. There’s even a Wall-E. Yet, something’s missing.
There aren’t many video game-inspired sets. The Minecraft Micro World released in 2012 kicked off the Lego Minecraft line, but we haven’t seen many other sets since then. Ones based on The Legend of Zelda made it to the review process, but were rejected due to needing too many original molds. We need more Lego video game inspired sets yesterday. To help you understand how real the need is, these are some of the best contenders that should be (or should have been) made into sets.
