Despite numerous film, TV and comic book franchises undergoing the LEGO treatment in recent times – not to mention indie video game mega-hit Minecraft – we've yet to see a crossover featuring any of our favourite Nintendo characters.
However, with your support that could soon change, thanks to a couple of ideas put forward on the LEGO Ideas — formerly LEGO CUUSOO — website by user mathelicious. The keen bricksmith has created mock-ups for two classic stages from the original Super Smash Bros. on N64: Congo Jungle and Hyrule Castle.
Both proposed sets are surprisingly faithful recreations of the original stages – the Congo Jungle set even features the blast barrel underneath the stage.
As with all LEGO Ideas submissions, projects must gather support from users before they can be considered for approval by the company itself. Therefore, you'll need to sign up to the site and vote if you want to have any chance of making either of these sets a reality.
Nintendo-based ideas have been submitted in the past; for example, LEGO The Legend of Zelda has received enough votes three times, unfortunately rejected twice and with a third project — Legend of Zelda: Iron Knuckle Encounter — currently seeking approval.
Would you buy LEGO-themed Super Smash Bros. sets? Which Nintendo franchise would you like to see immortalised in those colourful bricks? Let us know, and hit up the links below if you want to vote for the projects.
Thanks to Ben for the tip!
