Growing up, I couldn't get enough of the Muppet Show. I lived and breathed it. Any time it came on, I was excited. I loved every character, from Gonzo, the Fozzie Bear, and Kermit. Was there any way that we couldn't love them? It reminded me of the Jim Henson gang.

There was so much buzz from it, but it didn't possess the ten thousand supporters goal. It was annoying.

11. Tron LEGO Lightcycle

Have you watched Tron? If your answer is yes, that means you loved it. I did too. LEGO decided to create a light cycle that was common in Tron. When it came out, I wanted it badly.

The Dark Knight trilogy was something that I loved. When it ended, I felt like crying. LEGO decided to make it live on by creating these Minifigures. You will see a number of varieties of Batman.

Batman has a number of Batmobiles, and the Tumbler is one of them. Can we say it is the best? I loved the Tumbler, it is the definition of awesomeness. 

A LEGO builder that goes by the name, Brent Waller, decided to make this set to replicate the batmobile. When it was created, it passed the needed ten thousand supporter mark. This has made LEGO put it under consideration. LEGO CUUSOO's team is currently reviewing this awesome set.

We hope that we can buy it soon. Tumbler may not be the latest Batmobile, but I love it. 

18. Land-Rover LEGO Defender

Land-Rover LEGO Defender

This vehicle can go on any terrain, and that is why many people love the Land Rover. It is awesome that you can do well on a level surface or even rough terrain.

You will even see them in RWD and AWD modes. You will also come across the wheel disc brakes, as well as an auto clutch. It also possesses 5+R speeds sequential gearbox. This set was designed by a LEGO builder, and fortunately, it has gone past the needed ten thousand supporter mark. It is currently been reviewed by the team on CUUSOO.

19. The Legend of Zelda LEGO Set

If this set had been produced, we would have wanted it. This set was meant to be for gamers, but it was rejected. It got through the ten thousand required supporter mark, but after it was reviewed, it was tossed in the garbage. It was rejected by the team because they said the Minifigures would have been expensive. LEGO is a company that loves to pay attention to details. The molds that would have been used to create the mini figures would have been so expensive. This would have translated to expensive Minifigures. This was not feasible. The high price may have discouraged potential buyers. We hope that if LEGO could find an alternative way of making it cheaper than they would revisit its creation.

20. Man of Steel LEGO Set

Before the Man of Steel LEGO set was created, Superman remake had come out the year before. This action movie blew my mind. The cinematography was out of this world and the Superman character did justice to what we expected. When the movie was out, many fans clamored for a Man of Steel Set, and we got it. If you loved the movie, it won't be a bad idea to buy the movie's licensed LEGO set. You will love it. 

21. The A-Team LEGO Set

There is a great chance that you know the A-Team and the classic GMC Vandura that they drove. I have always wanted to have that vehicle. It seems cool.

22. LEGO Lord of the Rings: Tower of Orthanc

Lord of The Rings is one of the best movie trilogies in existence. This movie blew my mind. I watched every scene and was sad when it ended. Its books are out of this world. Everyone that was involved in the creation of the book and the movie should be awarded. If you have watched the movie, there is a great chance that you remember Saruman’s massive tower. LEGO decided to bring it back to life by using bricks. It has over two thousand pieces and has a measurement of twenty-eight inches tall. It comes with six floors, as well as some Minifigures. You will see popular characters like Saruman and Gandalf there. 

23. The Walking Dead LEGO Minifigures

LEGO seems to have issues with creating bricks that bear semblance to Walking Dead, Shaun of the Dead, and Street Fighter. To them, these characters are not in line with their brands. No matter how fans complain, LEGO seems to be adamant about that. We hope that one day LEGO would collaborate with the aforementioned companies, but that is not happening anytime soon.

The Walking Dead LEGO Minifigures

If you are a Walking Dead fan, you are in luck as you can buy your own Walking Dead LEGO Minifigure from Citizen Brick. You can also try out miniBIGS. 

For now, we don't see LEGO officially creating a flesh-eating zombie or even a vampire. Well, they have a brand philosophy that they do not want to change. Can we just hope even when it is pointless?

24. LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minifigures

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been on our screen s for a long time. There are a lot of versions in existence now. I couldn't get enough of them as a kid.

It is now seen as pop culture. This 1982 classic has been watched and rewatched by me. This set is meant to have about five hundred pieces. Though many people have been talking about this set, there has not been many supporters. 

26. Shaun of the Dead Zombie LEGO Set

Do you remember that comic zombie movie that we loved- the movie created by Mick Frost and Simon Pegg? 

Shaun of the Dead Zombie LEGO Set

Well, Yatkuu, a notable LEGO builder decided to tap inspiration from there when designing this set. This set got a lot of supporters, who wanted LEGO to create it, but unfortunately, it was turned down. The reason LEGO gave was that it was not appropriate for those that bought the sets they produced.

27. Marvel’s The Avengers LEGO Set

Well, this is the first Marvel's set on this list. We love Marvel's fans, and it would be wrong if we didn't add them too. Avengers is awesome. It is one of the best movies in existence. There is hardly anyone that doesn't know this team of superheroes we adored. If the Avengers existed in real life, I wouldn't mind joining them. I love them and what they stand for.

29. LEGO Star Wars Ewok Village Set

There are a lot of Star Wars collaborations in existence. LEGO loves Star Wars, and this can be seen in the numerous sets and Minifigures in existence. We could write only about Star Wars and its sets and Minifigures, and the list will be complete. 

There are a lot of Star Wars fans that won't stop buying these sets. This set has two thousand pieces. You will notice that this set mimics the forest moon of Endor.

When you buy this set, you will see seventeen Minifigures that have things like Luka, Leia, and so on. You will see numerous droids there. In this set, you will also see speeder bike, as well as a stormtrooper.

30. LEGO Game of the Thrones Minifigures

This movie series is one of the best in existence. Though many people didn't like the ending, we still loved the other seasons. This is a series that we loved, and it can be ranked in the same league with Breaking Bad. It ended a while back, and the LEGO set was created recently too. It may not be an official LEGO set, but miniBIGS decided to create one. It has a lot of Minifigures like Eddard and Arya Stark, John Snow, Tyrion Lannister, and Daenerys Targaryen.
