New Ultrabuild/Buildable Figures Ideas
So ever since the cancellation of Bionicle, I know many a fan-myself included-has been wondering what's next for Lego's Buildable Figures wing. Curiously, Lego doesn't seem to have recommitted the resources to expanding on the Star Wars line, and has given no indication-that I'm aware of-that another series like Bionicle or Hero Factory is in the works. Question is, were another Contraction line to come about, what would you like to see?
Personally, I think there's quite a bit of potential in the various licenses Lego currently holds or has previously held. Apart from expanding on the short-lived Superheroes line (a mere six figures, three each from DC and Marvel), there's definitely a few other possibilities. One that sticks out to me is The Hobbit which-if we were to take cues from previous lines-I could see playing out something like this:The Hobbit
Wave 1-Small Sets
Wave 1-Medium and Large Sets
Wave 2-Small Sets
- Gandalf the Grey
- Radagast the Brown
- Goblin King
- Ghostly Ringwraith
- Bilbo vs. Gollum
Wave 2-Medium and Large Sets
- Bard the Bowman
- Thorin vs. Azog
- Dain vs. Orc
Something like that-probably need to find a way to bring in more villains.
