Ten geektastic franchises we'd like to see made into Lego video games

>> Wednesday, December 9, 2009

Jo and I have been enjoying the heck out of Lego: Indiana Jones, the video game, and we've loved playing our way through Lego: Star Wars and Lego: Batman as well. In the spirit of seeing our favorite characters come to life in plastic bricks, we have a few other suggestions for movie and TV franchises we'd like to see get the Lego video game treatment, along with fan-created images from the internet:

10) Lego: Back to the Future

One point one jigawatts!? Yep, that's all it would take to fuel this flux capacitor, and a Lego game might actually make me watch Back to the Future II again. (Maybe.)

9) Lego: Army of Darkness

 You got your chainsaw, your shotgun, your zombies, and your one-liners. I've got one word: Groovy.

8) Lego: Justice League Unlimited

They've already done Lego: Batman (who's noticeably absent from this JLA roll-call!) so why not expand into the entire DC Universe? We're dying to play as Lego Green Lantern. And we bet Lego Flash comes equipped with Fast Build right from the start.

7) Lego: Monty Python and the Holy Grail

We're knights of the round table, we build whene'er we're able! Come on. Monty Python and the Holy Grail was made to become a Lego game.

6) Lego: Doctor Who

Eleven doctors, countless companions, classic villains, and endless time and space to play with. We're already dreaming about the TARDIS you go back to in between adventures!

5) Lego: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Come on. You know you want to play as Spike.

4) Lego: Hellboy

When things go bump in the night, these bricks bump back. The Hellboy universe has cool characters galore, and we can't wait to see Big Red pounding on a giant Lego cephalopod...

3) Lego: Star Trek

You've got five live action series, one animated series, and eleven movies for material. Just give us a super-strong Orion slave girl and a nerve-pinch move for Vulcans, and we're good.

2) Lego: James Bond

Must. Have. Goldeneye 007 was perhaps one of the best video games ever, so the bar is set pretty high here. But this is absolutely the best franchise that hasn't been given the Lego video game treatment, now that this is in the works:

1) Lego: Harry Potter

Coming March 2010!

What did we miss? What movie, book, or TV show do you want to see come to life in a Lego video game?

I had a friend suggest "Boston Legal" but then she realized it would be a very boring game, watching two men talk on a balcony. Then again, there's all that sex and violence, with Denny shooting clients and Alan roger-ing anyone in a skirt...
