LEGO licensed product opportunites missed

Postby Count Blacktron » Sat Dec 29, 2007 1:22 pm

Dear LEGO,

Please never again overlook the possibility of licensed sets based upon the 2007 film "Stardust" and it's original Neil Gaiman graphic novel.

The film is just too filled with possibilities for sets and minifigures. There are forest locations, the wall of Wall, village homes and shops, a magnificent enchanted tavern, the royal palace of Stormhold, carts drawn by goats and carriages drawn by horses, witches, the Hall of Mirrors, princes, peasants, ghosts, a Unicorn, the Airship and Pirates and of course, the Evening Star. Not only would this franchise fill our desire for a compliementary line of daily life sort of locations and events to go along with the popular Castle theme, but it would fill the void left by the abscence of the now ended Harry Potter line.

Please consider working together with the writer of the story and the filmmakers of "Stardust" and explore the opportunites present in this media for future minifigure scale sets.

I implore you to consider this.

I second that for all the reasons stated above. If a Lego theme of Stardust were released, I'm certain that it would sell very well.

as i agree it would be nice, there are just too many movies and such for Lego to license them all.

Lego has their own Ideas and themes and they can't get held back with every new movie although it would be cool

I would near-die from happiness if LEGO were to produce an official airship, Stardust or not. Mmmmm, airshipy goodness.

I'm gonna quote Damien here, on what I think of this thread:

Or how about A Song of Ice and Fire LEGO? Or Lord of the Rings LEGO? Or Conan LEGO? Bran Mak Morn? Kull? Solomon Kane? Dragonlance? Forgotten Realms? Basic D&D? The Black Company? Eberron? Thundercats? He-Man? Druss? Wheel of Time? Stones of Power?

The list is virtually infinite of random licenses that could be tossed out as potential LEGO sets. But, and I mean no offense here - all that amounts to is pipe-dreams. You could name any license you happen to like and say "LEGO should make this"

I think all those suggestions (with the possible exception of LoTR) are a bit too esoteric. They don't have the mass appeal that would support a Lego line, to the point where it would even out with the licensing fees.

I do not believe, as Athos says, tah the problem is mass apeal. I think that it is subject matter. Stardust, ASOIF, etc are far too adult for lego's primary audience. I mean i liked stardust, and the lady was pretty but there are many scenes I would not allow a child to watch. And as for ASOIF, i'm nearly 29 and dont think i'm old enough to read it yet! hehe

I mostly agree with Athos here. Harry Potter was a huge franchise. Lego sales on Harry Potter fizzled later in the run. Poor sales probably has more to do with bad set design and increased costs due to franchising, however. One would hope Lego has learned from this.


But I hope they haven't learned to shy away from doing similar themes on their own, sans franchise. Just need to mind the set design!
