While the return of Twin Peaks to screens next year might spark a new wave of merchandise around the classic series, I would imagine "LEGO Twin Peaks" is probably somewhere on the list of things that will never happen.

It didn't quite reach The Lion King's level of box office success, but since hitting theatres way back in 1999, Brad Bird's The Iron Giant has gone on to become a much-loved classic film.

But if any of your favourites are on the list below, you might want to rethink your life choices.
