Because I know you all love hearing me go on and on and on about this game.
Last time I gave a list of franchises I hoped will be Lego Dimensions for Year 3 (if it does indeed get one, still nothing concrete on that as of yet) but this time I wanted to make a list of franchises I feel will NEVER be in Lego Dimensions. I admit these choices might not be popular opinion, but here we go:
1) Anything owned by Disney
Figured I'd get the biggest one over with, I feel nothing owned by Disney will ever make it into Dimensions. This includes Star Wars and Marvel. The reason being that this game is made by Warner Bros, and aside from Roger Rabbit WB & Disney never do collab projects. If we ever DO see anything Disney in a game like this, it would have to be made BY Disney. I'm sorry if this upsets you, but I feel if they WERE going to put any Disney properties in the game they would have done so already by this point.
2) Anything owned by Nintendo
The reason for this is because Nintendo is a first party company and they'll not want their characters on other consoles. You may try and counter with "Why not just make their toy tags Nintendo exclusive?" Because having a set only for one console would not do well sales-wise. Having characters that work on all platforms is much more likely to succeed financially than characters that only work on just one.
They're too big and the age group they're meant for are too young to play games like this, anyway.
4) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
This one really pains me, but due to Lego no longer owning the rights to make TMNT products (they're now owned by Mega Bloks) that severely hinders the chance of any characters from this series making it into the game. Had this game been made 4 years ago it WOULD have happened, but alas it's too late.
5) SpongeBob Squarepants
Same reason as TMNT, Lego no longer makes Spongebob stuff, so it's not happening.
6) Five Nights at Freddy's
Despite being a huge FNaF fan, myself, I actually don't WANT them in this game. I honestly feel it wouldn't work. And McFarlane Toys owns the rights to FNaF building sets anyway, so there you go.
7) Anything owned by Dreamworks
I just don't see it happening.
8) Despicable Me
Another franchise owned by Mega Bloks, so it's a no-go.
9) My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
I don't see Hasbro agreeing to it.
10) Grand Theft Auto
I heard rumors of this franchise being added, but I just don't see it. It's way too adult themed for a kid's game. True a lot of the movie tie-ins got watered down as did Simpsons, but this would be so watered down it wouldn't even BE GTA anymore.
