70/80's Classic TV/Movie sets?

pincerpincer Member Posts: 32
Apologies if this thread has been done before but having built the Ghostbusters and Back to the Future sets and loving them I was wondering whether Lego could start a 70/80’s classic Movie/TV collection in the same vein?

Based around the iconic vehicles and characters I would love to see the following –

The A-Team (with van and 4 main characters)
Knight Rider
Starsky and Hutch
The Dukes of Hazard
The Blues Brothers
Smokey and the Bandit
Chips
Scooby Doo (van and characters)
Herbie
The Italian Job

Can anyone think of any significant others I may have missed out?

I would love to see these sets realised in Lego form. Maybe through Lego Ideas?

    For the Blues Brothers you have the Jazz Man from the CMF series, get two and just add short legs for one of them. If you want the car, change some colours and the design of the back of ECTO-1.

    For CHiPs, Series 2 Traffic Cop and add a motor bike.

    As to what is missing ... Airwolf, Miami Vice. Baywatch (although we have S2 lifeguard).

    Films ... Top Gun, Ferris Bueller, ET, Close Encounters, Blade Runner, Roger Rabbit, Karate Kid (requires a new flexible lego knee joint!), too many really.

    There is an E.T. project on Ideas that looks like it has potential:

    https://ideas.lego.com/projects/49729

    I could see that progressing if it reached the necessary support.

    No suggestions for more shows, but you might like this set of MOCs.

    I'm a pretty big fan of The Goonies, and would love to see a set come out of Ideas, but I just don't think it's popular enough.

    There is a project that has a lot of support, but even if it were to make it to 10,000, I don't expect it would make it into production.

    The Magician with Bill Bixby and his Corvette Stingray.
    The Beverly Hillbillies
    The. Munsters
    My Mother the Car
    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
    Nanny and the Professor

    To name a few that come to mind. I think a TV/Movie/Car sets would be fantastic.

    I was just thinking the other day that they kind of started a classic 80s car line with BTTF and Ghostbusters...I think it should be a theme

    The car from Who Framed Roger Rabbit would be amazing...as would the Ferrari from Ferris Bueller, but it would need the mini figures to make it from the film rather than just a Ferrari.

    How about a Full House house? And they could have Stephanie driving Joey's car into the kitchen as an action element.

    How about a Gerry Anderson series? Vehicles from Stingray and Thunderbirds would be especially welcome - though having said that, there are some splendid MOCs around anyway...

    They should really just start doing a classic movie series. Ecto1, DeLorean, and now at SDCC there's going to be a 60's Batmobile (even if it's a chibi, it'll count). They might as well keep it going.

    Well, the two mentioned Ideas/Cuusoo projects (and the comments here) have already shown that there is an interest for classic 70s/80s shows, so to be honest, I think your best chance is to put them on Ideas and see what people say.

    Emergency's Squad 51, a 1972 Dodge D-300. It's square enough that it wouldn't look too bad with standard parts, but a good chunk of the equipment couldn't be built with existing parts, and there would need to be some new parts for much of the equipment.

    I too would be for the classic Batmobile, and I'm not a Batman fan. The car just looks cool.

    That's ok. I'm not into Batman either (never read one comic), but I like the Batmobile. It is iconic. You cannot tell me that you wouldn't want to drive one to work...lol.

    I'd prefer to drive one not to work.

    Lol actually no I wouldn't, it just doesn't appeal to me. I'm more of a corvette stingray, ford mustang type girl lol.
