    I think this would be easy for lego, and would be a great line of sets. It could be a new link between classrooms and lego. The Greats War would be very fun, but people would get pissed saying they would think the Germans and Austrians were Nazis... they aren't of course, but no one knows that sadly. I would be glad if I saw a package of Lego Doughboys and Germans brawling it our on the cover, the few people who adore this conflict would buy very last one. This would also be nice for everyone else, finally a real war, the guns would be real. This is a suggestion never said to Lego, so don't get your hopes up, unlike me ;)

    • I hope you agree. Please no one get into a discussion about WW2, only about supporting WW1! By the way, The Great War is World War 1. A Zeppelin set would be pretty gosh darn epic. Well, I will eventually mail Lego my idea or something ;)

      Well, I suppose for current war, but they make plenty of sets based on wars where everyone is already dead, or no one's died yet (because it hasn't happened yet.)

      Don't know if this is support or not, but my historical military game series (known as Age of Empires) goes as far as the 19th century, but doesn't reach world war I.

    • It'd be a pretty cool idea, but I think it'd only be good for the big sets, eg tanks, planes to minifigure scale or whatever. I don't really think that WW1 should be condensed into a casual toy unless people fully understand the implications and the horrors of war, but as models, I'd love it!

    • They have never made a whole theme based of a real war. They may of taken inspiration from a war but never made a theme about a war. In the Indiana Jones theme they had to change the nazis to generic soldier so the theme would be legal in Germany. A Great war lego theme would be a PR nightmare.

      people used to make toys based off of atomic weapons (they don't anymore.) They would never make the bombing, but a model of an atomic bomb (from a Super Heroes movie or something) might make it.

    • i have a few set ideas

      • Battle at Gallipoli- small set with a few turkish soldiers, Anzacs, and a trench with flick-fire shells.
      • german tank- medium sized set with 3 nazi minifigures and 1 german officer
      • Enola Gay- a medium-sized set with the plane Enola Gay equiped with realistic mechanism that allows you to drop a nuclear bomb onto a city with millions of innocent people.
      • Hitlers office- a small sized set with an Adolf Hitler minifigure
      • Concentration camp-.......

      alright i think you get the point....these sets will NEVER work, so just stop thinking about how much of a "great idea" a lego theme based of REAL WAR that millions died in would be!

      All but Gallipoli set belong to the second World War (fortunately.) World War I is hard, but LEGO could get away with it easier than with World War II.

      I don't think the idea was that Lego would actually MAKE these sets, it was just speculating on whether sets based on WW1 would be any good. Come on, Lego Tanks or Planes would be pretty cool, and all the more believable if they were based on actual things.

      It's not like there isn't a precedent, although beyond planes there isn't anything interesting that could be made into a lego set - if they did WWI-era tanks, they might as well make lego sets out of tin cans since the two are virtually identical, barring machine gun ports and wheels/treads on the former.

      Yeah, I think these are the sorts of sets WW1 would be good for. Models that look good, not bringing back (too many) bad memories. Anyway, people buy model planes and tanks, what difference would there be if they were made of Lego?

      I don't think the problem's about the weapons side, more about condensing war into a casual toy. I think if they were going to make a fort it wouldn't do any harm leaving the weapons in, but I agree with your ideas about the other sets!

    • I am sorry for all the hate. I agree that this idea is a bit too rash, looking a Somme and Verdun. Many men and civilians lost their lives, any one no of the Armenian Genocide? Many Armenians lost there lives in death marches throughout the Ottoman Empire. I have been catching up on my history, and it really does look like a grim idea, I'm sorry for the posts. I am just a wiki contributor. To be on the safe side, LEGO should make a series of Steampunk sets. Sincerely, 70.44.188.104

    • I find it very offensive for people to talk of the Nazis in such a casual way, or make jokes with them in it. I suggested the Great War because ALL the sides, other than maybe Middle Eastern areas (my favorite to learn about) like Arabia (religious reasons), were pretty honorable. No one was really a terrible ruthless country. The war was STILL TERRIBLE I'M NOT SAYING IT ISN'T, but the world had a sense of dignity, which was lost in the wars to come. Germans were not evil, but the French were not either. The men who were evil were the kings and kaisers and what-not. They goofed up big time. I still mourn for the loss of Prussia, my favorite country of all time, other than the U.S.

Yesterday I went on a battlefields trip to Ypres, which saw some of the fiercest fighting of the war (1 in 4 British and commonwealth soldiers who died in the war died there). While I was there I got to see the scale of the deaths in a British graveyard and in a German graveyard which was a very sad sight. So how does this relate to LEGO, well whilst the aims of Kaiser Wilhelm were not nice many of the German soldiers were misled into signing up or were conscripted. This means they did not want to be fighting so is it fair to portray them as bad guys in a children's toy? No! The first world war is not something that should be a children's toy.

      One of Lego's defining features is its ability to reach out to all ages. People have got to stop thinking of Lego as JUST a series of kid's toys. While I do agree with you, Lego WW1 sets for AFOLs would be fine; people buy model planes and tanks, so why shouldn't they buy Lego planes and tanks?

      I meant, in the sense of them not being "toys", it would be targeted towards adults. They could target by AFOLs by keeping the price up, making the sets larger and more complicated, not including minifigures etc. In any case, the larger sets made as models rather than toys are marked "16+".

      Don't you mean "I don't need your hand-outs, I'm a adult!"?

      No, it's because he first contributed in 2008, and, if he was honest, then we was 13 then. 5 years later, he should be 18.

      At least 13. Anyway, unless this thread magically gets back on its (albeit ridiculous) topic, I'm going to close it. :/

      IDR how old was I, though could work it out. Anyway, I definitely made an account before 13.

    • Why is everybody so against this idea? Like people really, come on! Grow up, in medieval battles, real people died. In Pirate battles, people died. But wtf, someone mentions ww1, and "oh no, war can't be a set line, because people died in it. I've seen someone post how cool it would be to make Vietnam war sets, and everybody loved it. Vietnam was way more graphic than ww1! And for all of you who said this would be " disrespectful" go on YouTube, there are some amazing tributes, you just have to find them.

    • Exactly, my great grandma had 5 older brothers that were eligible to be in the German army. 4 of them were killed at verdun, and the other one on jumped out of a window of a 6 story building in 1918 saying " I can't take the the noise no more!" But yet, I think that in more ways than one, if they released a ww1 line, it could be like a tribute in lego

      World Wars I and II are considered modern warfare. It is still fairly recent in history, and though the generation is dwindling, it is still there and it still hurts.

      Also, you might want to look at this. If you are wondering, that image comes from the 2011 progress report, which can be found here.

      I totaly agree, mentioning those wars still touches people. And it isnt that action you see in movies or thar kind of stuff. Real grown ups would not make a toy out of a thing that people got brutaly murdered and the veterans of World War 2 still live! And again war is too horrific for a LEGO set!

      Do you people realise that war isnt like the games where blood just spills a bit and then disapiers after the player respawn! Its not becouse people died and oooh its violent! Lego has done sets with death before but never a set with 1000s of dead people not just passed away, actualy pearsed by bullets and organs split out to the ground or burnt down by a bomb going of. And mainly its not that we dont want young people to be effected by the violence but its the horrors of the war we want them not to expirience like our grandparents or other family.
