A LEGO version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would be great. I know Mega Bloks are the ones who're making TMNT sets at the moment, but then, they USED to do Pirates of the Caribbean, which LEGO now do.

Oh, and Ghostbusters would be the best thing possible. They could even include characters from Ghostbusters Extreme.
Maybe they'll make one to tie in with the (unfortunately) upcoming Ghostbusters 3?

Very cool. Another buy from me right there.

I have to say, Lego Ghostbusters sounds absolutely pish. I'm not understanding this Ghostbusters love at all. Whatever next, Lego Worzel Gummidge? Good grief.

I'll definitely go with the Lego Dr. Who. Especially if they incorporate all the Lore and Doctors into it. That'd be ACE.

Maybe feature a special Kinect mode where if you physically look away from the screen (while playing a Weeping Angels level) they move towards your character to kill him! :lol:

They would definitely plumb the superb Real Ghostbusters cartoon there I think. That had quite a few baddies in it every week. :lol:
Plus it had the fantastic voice talent of Frank Welker: He of Ray Stanz, Slimer, Fred and Scooby in Scooby Doo, Doctor Claw in Inspector Gadget, Megatron, Soundwave, and of course GARFIELD! :lol:
Incidentally I once heard that Frank Welker is the highest grossing actor in the world if you added up the grosses of every film he's been in. He does so many animal vocals that he's not credited for I'm sure there's thousands of films.


Another one for Ghostbusters as a possible, I can see how that one would work. Dr Who sounds interesting but not sure how it'd work. With the exception of Ace battering a Dalek with a baseball bat there's not an awful lot of hand to hand, mind you nothing to stop you firing sonic screwdrivers ala Ghostbusters guns...

Have you been up to the Starbase and down to Jadeoria yet? Those mushroom houses, the pink snails and most of the slugs are all mine ;-)

I guess with Ghostbusters you could have a potential 16 characters right from the word go - black and tan movie uniform, real ghostbusters coloured uniforms and the spooky citizen ghost episode uniforms.

Ghostbusters isn't exactly renowned for its hand to hand combat either. Neither is Harry Potter but that didn't stop a decent Lego game being made out of the franchise.

All these Lego properties are swiftly reminding me of the habit of turning every single 90's Movie license into a shoddy platform game, whatever the actual license.
Now, instead of getting LJN or Acclaim to make cashin platformers they get Traveller's Tales to make it into Lego.

Lego Twilight anyone? There's already a petition for it! :roll:

I'll be passing on Lego Twilight if it gets a release.
Lego Harry Potter is as low as I go.

Talk about missing the obvious, Lego Simpsons? Loads of characters, and they're yellow! (I'm sorry but flesh-coloured Lego people don't look right.)

Lego Twilight? They won't get the vampire bloke (dunno his name cos I DON'T CARE) right, he's weird looking...

I'd realised that half way through my post when brainstorming and thinking up alternatives and forgot to tidy the post up :oops:

A Doctor Who one would be great. Obviously you have the various incarnations of the Doctor and the Master, the companions, other time lords like Rani and Romana, River Song who likes her weapons, Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, Silurians.

The list could go on for ages and who wouldn't want to see a Lego Bernard Cribbins shooting a Dalek. :lol:

Too many games, too little time!
