Being a big Lego fan and recently completing Lego Lord of the Rings, it got me thinking about what might be next for Lego and Travellers Tales, they’ve already turned Indie, Harry Potter, Luke Skywalker, Batman and the Justice League into Mini figures, where could they possibly go next?
Then I got to thinking about what films I’d like to see made into Lego games. I’m sure Lego and Travellers Tales struggle to decide which films to turn into games, as every film out there has the potential to be turned into a Lego game. Even existing games have the Lego potential, Halo anyone? OK While we’re never going to see Lego Halo and Gears of War, it would be spectacularly awesome if they ever did exist. I did read recently, in my sons Lego magazine, about new Lego sets of Turtles and Chima, (which is already an upcoming game) so we may even see TV series getting a taste of the Lego magic. If Turtles makes it into a game, I’ll have my hopes up for The Avengers Assemble to one day follow.
5 – The Hunger Games - The books, I’m told, are amazing. I’ve seen the first film and thought just how well this could work as a Lego game, I’d suspect that if Lego/TT ever did make this into a game, we’d have to wait till 2016, when the last film, Mockingjay Part 2 is released in 2015.
4 – Bond - With 23 Bond films, there’s more than enough material here to create a sensational James Bond Lego game. I’ve got to say the current Bond, played by Daniel Craig is my favourite, and I’d be more than happy to part with money to see him Legonised. Lego car chases, jumping your Lego motorbike from rooftops in Skyfall, picking up mini kits of the 007 symbol. Count me in, I’m already pre-ordering!
2 – X-Men – The Wolverine is due for release across the globe, July 2013. We’ve been watching the films for the past 13 years, it’s one of my favourite superhero franchises and I would buy more than one Lego X-Men games if they came to fruition.
1 – Avengers – Who didn’t enjoy The Avengers Assemble at the cinema in 2012? It was one of the biggest block buster films of the year, banking $1 billion in its first three weeks at the box office. There is massive potential for an Avengers Lego game, with plenty of characters to collect. The Lego sets have been in the shops before the film’s release, so I’m hoping it’s a matter of time till I hear of Lego Avengers: Assemble the video game!
(Editors note-Since writing, it has been announced that Lego are bringing out a LEGO Marvel game)
This is my list of what I would like to see being made into Lego games, leave me a comment with yours! Travellers Tales, I hope you’re taking note, we’re watching with great interest on what’s coming next for Lego Fans
