For the first time in a Lego video game, characters from all different franchises are coming together for one epic game. 14 different franchises with over twenty characters, but the question on everyone's mind is: What franchises are next to come? I've put together a list of potential franchises based on the themes of franchises already in the game such as Doctor Who, Scooby Doo, and Back to the Future. Now before we begin, keep in mind the franchises chosen for Lego Dimensions were based on ideas for standalone games, but either didn't have enough characters or content.
The Hunger Games
This franchise is loaded with action and interesting characters. I would want to see a level pack with Katniss Everdeen where she and the games trio characters (Batman, Gandalf, Wild Style) team up and navigate through the arena from the first movie and watch out for traps and sabotage the other players. And a Peeta Mellark fun pack. Abilities for Katniss: Agility, Bow and Arrow, Tracking, and Camouflage. Abilities for Peeta: Camouflage, Super Strength. The Hub world could be the first two arenas and the Capital, along with District 12.
Lets face it, who hasn't wanted to play the Terminator in a video game? The problem with making this into a standalone game is that there aren't that many characters and not enough content to make the standard 5-6 levels per movie. And along with the critical failures of Terminator Salvation and Terminator: Genysis, they would more than likely have to keep it to the original three, which cuts down on more content. I would like to see a Team Pack of The Terminator and Sarah Conner (T2). Abilities of the Terminator: Cracked Lego Tiles, Hacking, Laser, Silver Lego Blowup, Target, Tech Panels, and Super Strength. Abilities of Sarah Conner (T2); Hacking, Target, and Tech Panels, and Agility. The Hub for this world could include Los Angeles, and the Future plagued by Skynet.
This idea came from the Doctor Who franchise of the game. In the game the Doctor can regenerate into all of his past incarnations and can travel in the TARDIS. The character of James bond has been played by several actors and could be done in the same manner of the Doctor Who character, each time you die as James Bond he re-spawns as the next actor who played him, so Daniel Craig would re-spawn as Sean Connery and so on. This should be done in a Level Pack so as to keep it down to one character as it would be difficult to choose another character from the franchise. Gadgets could include some of his memorable tools such as the Flame-Thrower Bagpipe, "Little Nellie", or the Wrist Mounted Dart Gun, depending on the Bond. Standard Abilities for all Bonds: Drill, Electricity, Hacking, Hazard Cleaner, Laser, Sonar Smash, Target, Tech Panels, X-Ray Vision, and Stealth. The Hub for this world might be a little tricky, but it should definitely include MI-6.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
This idea was based on Lego Ninjago and Chima. While I'm no fan of either franchise, all three have something in common: Ninjas, Animals, and all already having a Lego Franchise. I could see this as either two team packs, or four separate fun packs, each containing the four turtles. Abilities for all four Turtles include: Agility, Protection from Hazard Materials, Swimming Ability, and Target Ability. Various abilities for each individual Turtle. The Hub world for this franchise could be their sewer, and New York City.
This idea was based on the Scooby Doo Franchise of the Game. With already one Hanna-Barbara franchise under it's belt, it's likely there are more to come. I would want a Fun Pack with George Jetson and a Team Pack with Elroy Jetson and Astro. The Hub world would obviously be Orbit City. Abilities for George Jetson: Electricity, Target, and Technology Panels. Abilities for Elroy: Drill, Hacking, Mini Access, and Technology Panels. And Abilities for Astro include: Digging, and Swimming.
This idea also stems from Scooby Doo, and would blend well with Scooby Doo and Jetsons. I would prefer to see a Team Pack with Fred Flintstones and Barney Rubble, and they could have Dino as a Vehicle and The Flintmobile. The Hub world would obviously be Bed Rock City and would include the Flintstones neighborhood and the quarry. Abilities for Fred Flintstone include: Drilling, Digging, Cracked Lego Tiles, Ilumination (Torch).
This one is possible due to it being owned by the BBC, which also owns Doctor Who. I 'd like to see this as a Team Pack with Sherlock and Watson.
This one is very unlikely because of it's dark and mature content. But come on, who wouldn't love to see Sam, Dean and Castiel go head to head with demons lego style?
