In recent years, the LEGO Ideas program has given fans the tools to create and create some amazing concepts using the tile format. While a number of sets have been released as a result, Zelda fans have failed in their quest to claim a set based on Nintendo’s Zelda franchise. However, that did not stop user Artem Biziaev from sharing his views on a fantastic Hyrule Castle set! Based especially on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the castle would consist of 2600 pieces, and contain Minifigs by Link, Zelda, Ganondorf, et Stalfos, a member of the Royal Guard and Anju.
A picture of the castle can be found below, and more pictures can be found on the LEGO Ideas page here.
What is interesting about this set is how much effort has been put into really channeling the heart off Ocarina of Time. From the Temple of Time, to the inclusion of four Heart Pieces, there is an incredible attention to detail. If this set were to get the green light from LEGO and Nintendo, it is safe to say that it would be a must-have for Zelda fans!
While previous Zelda sets have been shown through LEGO Ideas before, it’s worth noting that the odds are a bit higher, this time. After all, 2020 saw the release of a series of Super Mario sets from the company, as well as the release of a LEGO game on the Nintendo Entertainment System. While the characters in the LEGO Mario line have not followed the classic Minifig format, it is quite possible that a Zelda set would follow something a little more traditional.
For those unfamiliar with the LEGO Ideas program, fans can sign a petition to show LEGO that there is an interest in buying the shared concept. As the concepts reach major milestones, users will have more time to attract signatures. At the time of writing, the Hyrule Castle project idea has 602 days left, and 1390 supporters. It will take much more than that to get LEGO’s attention, so Zelda fans who want to see the set to be fulfilled will show the project a little love!
