You would think signing a brand like “The Walking Dead” would be a no brainer considering the rage for zombies today in our society! LEGO has already released one zombie set in the LEGO Monster Fighters theme called “The Zombies” which retailed at $39.99 and that set was massively popular, selling on ebay for over $100!

The Walking Dead television series is based on the comic book series created by Robert Kirkman. The series is based around a sheriff named Rick Grimes, who has become an icon for zombie fans. The television series has gone on to break many records, receiving 12.4 million viewers for its season three finale to become the most-watched drama series telecast in basic cable history!

This brand would a hit for sure for LEGO. Personally I think LEGO The Walking Dead sets would sell as well as the LEGO Minecraft set sold. The Walking Dead is a huge brand and zombies are huge at the moment!

Hopefully LEGO will consider picking up this brand. However at the moment LEGO seems to be avoiding the adult brands, an example was when LEGO denied the Cuusoo project “The Winchester – Shaun of the Dead“. One of our own staff members wrote several interesting articles on this topic a few months ago that might appeal to you. “Cuusoo Rejections: The right thing to do?” and “LEGO Lines I’d love to see that’ll NEVER get made

In the end, we’ll probably never see a LEGO The Walking Dead set, sadly, however there is hope! Considering Mega Bloks licensed the “Halo” brand, hopefully Mega Bloks will be smart and decide to secure this brand. This could be a huge move for Mega Bloks! Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed the article. What do you think about this possible brand?

    It would be silly for them not 2

  2. Andrew says:

    For it to be mega bloks it will have to become a video game. Mega bloks should do call of duty that would be sick

  3. Ultron32 says:

    No, please no. They’d never do it. It’s too violent. For the same reasons they didn’t do Shaun of the Dead when it was a cuusoo project.

  4. Sping lopez says:

    they should not do it lego’s main age group is kids. can you imagine a little kid walking into a lego isle at target and seeing bloody,rotting zombies everywhere

  5. Brandon c Aldridge says:

    They should but they won’t because its too violent

  6. mamaK says:

    I don’t think it would be any worse than Lord of The Rings. That scares the buhjeezus out of me….as Walking Dead does.
