We've seen some awesome fan-made video game Lego concepts of late — including Zelda and Mega Man — and now it's the turn of Metroid to get the block-building treatment.
Lego fanatic Lizardman has created a set which features Samus Aran, Ridley and Samus' iconic gunship. The concept has been submitted to Lego Cuusoo, which is a site where fans can put forward ideas for future Lego sets. Once a concept reaches 10,000 "supporters" it will be considered for proper production as a Lego set — assuming of course that Lego is able to secure the appropriate licensing, of course.
Will you be giving your support to this project? Let us know by leaving a comment.
Hmm, the set needs a bit of work, especially Ridley. It doesn't look like it will be an expensive set to buy though.
LEGO is always expensive. I'd be willing to pay for some well made Metroid themed stuff though, certainly. :3
Meh, not that great looking tbh
Lego metriod game? Sure. Lego metriod set? Nah.
Would buy a couple of these sets
There's also this project that is more or less the same thing but with a metroid included, and it's already at a thousand or so.
It doesn't look -that- good, especially Ridley.
I'm going to start a kick starter for all these billz -_-
Probably the weakest of the nintendo franchise concepts I've seen
Ridley looks small here. RIDLEY CONFIRMED FOR SSB4!!! (Sarcasm)
Remember, all cuusoo models are only concepts. Lego will make the final design, with this as a very basic prototype
Do these come in 16-block resolutions?
Nobody even buys the games, so what's the market for Metroid themed Lego??
This is too cool. I hope it becomes a reality.
@LDXD: He must be high, I buy them all for the 3DS!
Not feelin' Ridley. Samus looks cool/cute and her gunship I'd give 6/10. I'm gonna say, try again. On the right track though. Don't want to crap all over this guys work. Who knows how long that took him. I'll bite with a redesign and perhaps a Light or Dark Suit Samus.
This Iis really AWESOME!!!!!!! WHOEVER SAYS OTHERWISE IS someone I disagree with!!!!!!
Please watch the insults — TBD
@Artwark Dammit. I said otherwise.
Considering the recent lack of Metroid and the Other M controversy, the timing could hardly be worse.
And Ridley should be made with LEGO Technic instead of the usual bricks. But generally: no. It looks sloppy, and just because Star Wars did this doesn't mean this is doing Metroid any justice - because it doesn't.
@Artwark Thanks for helping me realize my true nature.
Meh... Maybe after the Zelda set gets approved.
I registered and started supporting stuff. If you type Mario there is a cool set of the first Donkey Kong. There's Kame House, Dr Wily's castle, a Wind Waker set, etc.
@True_Hero Good one!
The Zelda ideas have made it past the voting stages a few times but then got shot down by LEGO for either unspecified or cost reasons.
Then part of me wonders if there is still bad blood between LEGO and Nintendo over N&B blocks (Nintendo's LEGO clone in the 1960s) then again LEGO City games are Nintendo exclusive (though I don't know if LEGO is directly responsible).
There is also the existing Mairo Kart K'Nex sets. Does that mean Nintendo is exclusive to these or just Mario?
While I myself wouldn't buy this, Nintendo needs to start merchandising like they said they would buy have actually not.
To those complaining about the design, remember that this is just the concept. If it did get the votes and passed review then an actual Lego team would redesign it.
I would buy this in an instant! How can I support it?
I would buy a Metroid Lego set in an instant... if it were Lego Technic and was well done. This looks like they turned Metroid into a Saturday morning cartoon for 4 year olds. I am sure this is only a concept, not the final build, but it still isn't enough to fill me with hope.
I would buy this without hesitation.
I have a feeling that if a Legend of Zelda set couldn't get approved, this won't have much of a chance.
The problem with previous LEGO Zelda designs was the amount of new elements that would need to be manufactured. The recent one, Iron Knuckle Encounter, only requires 1 new piece.
@Shadow_Chad6982 Beat me to it.
"However, multiple new element molds would be required to create the minifigures for such a product, and the expense of these molds means that the Legend of Zelda project unfortunately does not pass the LEGO Review on the basis of the business case."
This new LTLOZ set is possible with only one new element planned. This Metroid set is also possible as it doesn't require any new pieces
Yeah, not for me, thanks. I feel that I'd be capable of building a better set myself, and if it doesn't require any new elements, then I'd rather not spend the money anyways.
As much as I love Metroid and building stuff, I'm gonna say... meh.
Go to this website for links to WAY better Metroid Lego sets!
I didn't make the sets, but I made the site in five minutes to help.
Those are the two that the site I made talks about.
