Epic Set Names

DadsAFOLDadsAFOL USAMember Posts: 617
Every once in a while, LEGO comes up with a fantastic name for a set. I just saw this new summer Nexo set and think the name is great.

#70356 The Stone Colossus of Ultimate Destruction


What are your favorite set names of all time?

    A great name for a mediocre looking set, imho.

    Not a set but from a LEGO Movie/Video Game. Dr. Doom's Dooms Ray of Doom.

    Assault on Hoth! That's totally epic! Oh wait...
  • AanchirAanchir United StatesMember Posts: 2,848
    #70626 Dawn of Iron Doom and #70738 Final Flight of Destiny's Bounty are certainly up there.

    I liked Tormak's Shadow Blazer. Metal Beard's Sea Cow is also neat haha.

    Personally I thought the whole Viking theme is only theme where every set has an epic name.  Viking Ship Challenges the Midgard Serpent, Viking Double Catapult vs. the Armored Ofnir Dragon, or Viking Boat Against the Wyvern Dragon.  They're all epic.

    I like the Aquazone #6199 Hydro Crystallization Station. Rolls off the tongue nicely.

    Black Falcon's Fortress still sounds so imposing, many years later. Same with Black Seas Barracuda. And "Renegade" still remains an epic name for the original large Blacktron ship; heck, "Blacktron" is all kinds of hella cool.

    I'd never seen that site before! It's cool, but could use an update—newer themes like Ninjago, Friends, and so forth are full of unique names that could result in some pretty funny stuff when recombined.

    Anyway, as for sets that have interesting names, here's a few: General Magmar's Siege Machine of Doom, Enter the Serpent, Epic Dragon Battle, Naida's Epic Adventure Ship, and Benny's Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!

    I dunno if you can call a title epic if the word epic is in the name. Sort of like when some junk has "Collectors item!" written in the package.

    This! All of them! Wolfpack is also on that list for me.

    At the other end of the spectrum, there are set names like "LEGO Chess" (40174). Could a set name be any shorter, less interesting and more to the point? I guess they could have left the LEGO name out.

  • SprinkleOtterSprinkleOtter Member Posts: 2,742
    "Garmatron"

    Galaxy Commander is a short one, but epically describes what that ship does - Commands the Galaxy :-)

    And then there was "Maze"... it did cross my mind at the time that it made the box look a bit cheap and generic. Didn't feel a fair criticism, because it IS a maze, but since it was also a special Ideas set it felt a bit blunt.

    ^ You're right, it is not even LEGO Maze.

    don't forget the veritable sea of "Car" sets Lego has made. I was going to list them all bout after I hit 10 I gave up trying. at least in those cases the sets are as uninspired as the names.
  • MAGNINOMINISUMBRAMAGNINOMINISUMBRA Member Posts: 993
    One of my long term favourites has been 1687 Midnight Transport.  The name turns the subject matter into something else entirely!  AND ITS GOT A HELICOPTER!

    I was always partial to the Mega Core Magnetizer as a set name, myself. For modern sets, I like Horizon Express as a set name quite a bit. 
  • IstokgIstokg MichiganMember Posts: 2,104
    I thought "Church Set" had a descriptive ring to it.... ;-)

    As a train goes, I liked the name The Emerald Night. 
    Pretty epic for a train.

    Oh, one I forgot to mention that I still love to this day is #6240 Kraken Attackin'!

    Sometimes with older sets, how epic the names might be varied based on country. Often the US names were more wild and action-y while UK names were more descriptive (like the previously-mentioned "Mega Core Magnetizer", which was just "M:Tron Recovery Centre" in the UK), but sometimes it was the other way around. #6705, known by the pretty tame name "Space Explorers" in the US, became "Commander Bear and the Spyrians" in the UK. Just hearing that name I can easily picture it appended to an old-fashioned movie poster or sci-fi magazine cover.

    I always felt like a "Titan XP" was pretty epic, its simple sure, but it's a freakin Titan! what more needs said?
