We do love a bit of LEGO Zelda, and so do the myriad of people who are both LEGO and Zelda fans who keep voting Zelda-themed, fan-made sets (officially termed "MOCs" - My Own Creation) into the final round of LEGO Ideas' design review.
LEGO Ideas is the brick company's opportunity for the general public to have the chance to see their set designs made real, as long as they get enough support and pass that crucial final review, in which actual LEGO employees decide if a set is viable as a commercial product.
We have yet to see a single Zelda set make it past that review, but we can still hope — and our latest hope is this detailed, poseable figure of Link from Breath of the Wild, complete with Master Sword, Shiekah Slate, and Korok friend.
The set has 4,460 supporters and about a month to go, in which time it needs to make it to 5,000 supporters in order to pass through to the next round. Eventually, the set will need to reach 10,000 supporters to be admitted to the expert review. If you'd like to lend your support to LEGO Link, click here to take a look at the project!
and it won't get made, like every other zelda thing that has made it to the final round and burned up?
not trying to be too pessimistic but it's hard to keep rooting for failure, still cool looking however
I can guarantee that Lego community would scoff at this and complain that it should have been a set of minifigures instead of something cool.
Yeah knowing Nintendo this isn't happening
@Preposterous a minifigure would have a face at least, i guess. you'd think they'd have at least put some black tiles/bricks for the korok
@somebread Hey, it’s not that hard rooting for failure, I manage it supporting the Scotland football team!
Even if it does reach 10,000 it’s not happening, Lego never approve Nintendo licenses
@Nintendude78 yea I was about to say the same thing, although I think its probably Nintendo giving the no-go
Looks very basic, especially on the back view.
Its not happening. Not saying this one is bad or anything, but if the full hyrule castle set didn't even get the green light. The odds of this is just, well you know.
No Nintendo IPs on Ideas. So, this ain't happening.
@Nintendude78 @Preposterous I don’t know why they get refused but I thought it was LEGO rather than Nintendo I mean there are plenty of licensed Nintendo toys otherwise and even multiple Mario LEGO which seem pretty successful even if too gimmicky for my tastes… either way I do hope we get more Nintendo licensed LEGO sets whether through Ideas or LEGO designers I don’t care just give me more!!
@dil_power They are refused because Lego wants to design Nintendo sets themselves. Which is a valid reason (for them) to refuse sets. (It's in the rules of the Ideas program)
It can happen! With Lego you can build anything.
@dil_power You might be right. Its sorta odd that nintendo would keep rejecting them, I mean they see how much money could be made right?
@Jacoby YES! that is the kind of positive vibes we need! "LEGO Zelda is here along with this announcement of BOTW2" - guy at next nintendo direct
I'd buy it, shame it won't happen.
I like it, though it reminds me of that old mobile game Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery.
@sanderev thanks for your explanation that makes a lot of sense.
It's already on aliexpress.
Still trying to figure out how Horizon got a Lego set before Zelda .....
Where's his face
That music. Just makes me wish I could play the game again just like the first time, it was a glorious time.
(No Djinns need apply thanks, I don't want to have a rock hit me in the head so I lose all my memories for the past 5 years!)
