Fantasy LEGO League Guide

Have you ever had a great idea for a LEGO license or theme that would best feature minifigures? Wouldn't it be fun to offer up some wild-conjecture and wish-list options on LEGO sets that could be?

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you "The Fantasy LEGO League". In each post I'll put forth an idea for a new theme, and rate that idea based on a few criteria:
  • Must-have minifigures: This is a minifig blog after all
  • Propensity for vehicles: Themes with vehicle sets are often best sellers
  • Preexisting fan-base: Niche or mass-market?
  • Depth of theme: A one-trick pony or overflowing with ideas?
  • Kid friendliness: Alas, AFOLs are still in the minority
  • Likelihood of license: How likely would the current license holder be willing to play?
  • Custom options: If they won't do it, how might you?
I'm open to other dimensions, but think of these more qualitatively vs. quantitatively. This exercise is only for fun (alas, TLG won't return my calls), so don't take it too seriously.

If you have ideas, feel free to contact us (uglyduck.bricklink@gmail.com).
