Are Lego Historical themes a 'thing of the past'?
Castle, Pirates, Wild West, Adventurers. These are classic themes based upon various time periods of human history and all have been redone in fairly recent years. But now it looks like they themselves have become history.
The last true 'historical theme' was Pirates back in 2015. The latest Pirates of the Caribbean film provided FOLs with just one set, which was no use for a reasonably realistic 'pirate era' display.
Nexo Knights appeared to have stolen the rightful place of a realistic (or semi realistic) castle/kingdoms/medieval theme but now that has finally become extinct, where have the historical themes gone?
I want to start a discussion on what the future of these great themes is, any rumors for upcoming historical themes, or eras of history we would like to see Lego do.
I personally would love to see more of all the traditional themes but perhaps one from the 20th century, such as a City/Creator-like Prohibition era one or retro 1950s etc.
