A new Constraction line really needs to happen.

Well, we'll see what next year's "Leaf" theme is won't we? :wink:

@MAB Bob's Burgers is another one I propose. I didn't recommend American Dad, Futurama or King of the Hill because I don't think those would be marketable. 

I'm not really a fan of such adult-oriented franchises coming under Lego's umbrella, but I would be interested in seeing Disney's Gravity Falls being represented in some way having recently checked out the show, as it's somewhat comparable regarding its brand of "tongue-in-cheek" humor.

We sure will, but there is no guarantee that it's going to be constraction.... But I really hope it is.

For me, I'm hoping for my own sake that it'll end-up being a another in-house, System-based "big bang" theme (i.e. Ninjago, Chima, Nexo Knights) that's more up-my-alley; but, having said that, it'd be fairer to Constraction fans who haven't anything at all if were such instead of another System-based theme.

I wasn't either at one point. But then I realized that these sets were targeted towards adults. Same with that Friends tv show set. If adult related themes like this can show us that Lego cares about its adult fanbase, I'm willing to adapt. :classic:

If LEGO ever does anything that's even vaguely connected to The Lion King, shut up and take my money please.

That would epic if they did do something with The Lion King. Would it sell though is the question.

If that were the case, it would probably be Duplo...

Another one I want to see real bad is a bus drivers ubtheme for City. I mean buses sell just as well as police sets cars, fire trucks, garbage trucks and ambulances. In this theme, the buses and the terminal are yellow and green. 

60281 Bus Terminal - This acts as the base set for the subtheme. Includes a yellow and green terminal building and a yellow and green 35 foot bus. 

60282 Cycle N Ride - This is basically a re-release of set number 60154 Bus Station. Thought I'd rename it "Cycle N Ride" since there wasn't really a station in there. Includes a bus stop and a yellow and green 40 feet bus. 

60283 Downtown Bus Ride - Includes the first ever articulated bus. Its yellow and green with a bendy piece in between it. 

60284 Shuttle Service - Includes green and yellow shuttle bus with a handicapped elderly man.

Duplo Lion King product would be the exception to the "shut up and take my money" thing.

Even then, they might still be great parts sets.

Useful for parts rather than display. Like there's a bunch of parts you might need for a MOC in that set and instead of showcasing the official set, you divide it up into the bins (of organization or not) and use the pieces for whatever you want.

Ah. But you're not against adult themes either Lego, are you?

Not really... most of those types of themes we had so far were made out of pretty generic parts that weren't all that useful...

Generic parts are always useful, my friend! :wink:

If they had a (non-boring) history theme with all under $30 sets featuring 3 to 4 unique minifigures each, I would buy everyone. Every Last One. Roman Soldiers, Cavemen, Samurai, Egyptian, Conquistadors. This is a no-brainer.

No, as long as we don't get full blown themes of Friends, Big Bang Theory, etc. One and done sets (even two) ar eperfectly fine in my opinion, but I don't think LEGO should stretch itself too thin over licenses if possible.

That would be a smart idea. I did at one point recommend that Lego should stick to generic content. But then I realized how dumb that sounded. I wish Eurobricks allowed us to delete our comments.

The theme that we need is anything NOT high concept. Just bring back a normal theme that lets the consumer fill in the blanks. Anything that's castle, space, monster, Egyptian, Roman, pirates would be great.

I would like to see the following as Lego themes:

1. Lego Zelda: Breath of the Wild (I can dream)

2. An unlicensed space theme with both aliens and humans, where the alien species are not automatically the criminals or 'bad guys'.

3. Lego Warframe (this is pretty impossible, however, because of the game's content).

4. Lego Exo-Force two or something akin to it.  We were given the Ninjago mechs, which are all awesome, but, it would be cool to have an entire mech theme.

We need a new constraction theme. Something new and interesting, like Bionicle was at it's beginning. Or just reboot Slizer.
