Including actual gods and goddesses might be tricky, but they could probably get away with it if they didn't use the word "god" and substituted phrases like "King of the Underworld" or "Mistress of Wisdom." The Romans line could instead focus on the extent of the Empire and feature Romans interacting (peacefully or otherwise) with other ancient cultures--Egypt, the Celts, the Germanic barbarians, etc.

You're obsessed with 'em! They would be great to have more of, though

The idea of heroes could mean we get some awesome new figures and monsters!
I was going to say maybe they could do a Percy Jackson license and mix Greek mythology with modern times (plus it would probably sell better with kids), but then I remembered that LEGO tends to focus on movie versions for visible recognition, and the Percy Jackson movies are awful.
