Zelda LEGO Is a Great Idea, But I'm Not Sold On The Tetris Transformer

As you may or may not be aware, LEGO is doing this crowd sourcing thing, to get idea for new types of LEGO. The idea is this — if you come up with an idea for a new LEGO product, and get 10,000 people to support that idea, LEGO will take the concept into consideration. As you might expect — more than a few video game ideas have come up, and one of those is for Zelda LEGO.

The Zelda LEGO concept has just hit 10,000 supporters, which means that LEGO will actually take a serious look at whether or not to produce Zelda LEGO. Part of that investigation will no doubt look at the licensing difficulties — my honest opinion is that this Zelda LEGO will most likely never get made, which is a shame, because the creator of the idea has put a lot of work into getting the presentation right.

Look a little deeper into things, however, and you'll find a plethora of video game related LEGO projects, begging for your support. Some good... some a little bit terrible. I don't know how I feel about this Tetris Autobot looking thing — well, it looks awesome, but I don't know if it's something that could feasibly be made!

And don't get me wrong — I love Penny Arcade — but Gabe and Tycho LEGO? Really? Well, it might be funny...

Incredibly an application for EVE Online LEGO has actually garnered more than 10,000 supporters, meaning that LEGO are currently considering making a LEGO package for The Rifter! Insane.

Oh, and while we're talking about LEGO projects — everyone should write and complain about LEGO rejecting this awesome idea.


    Well I've supported it, can't wait to see if Nintendo is up for it!
    If anyone is a member, would you mind giving my project a boost?

    The best stuff on Cuusoo is the non-licensed stuff- rather than go to the cost of licensing for a niche product (Yes, the internet might like it, but that doesn't translate to $$) with little creativity other than "look! it's Link! AS A LEGO MAN!" the non-licensed stuff continues to push the creative boundaries of Lego.

    The Winchester! There's a Breville out back.

      John'll do you a toastie!

    If this happens I will buy it and then create a Zelda/Star Wars crossover world in my living room :D

    None of these will ever happen though, because of licensing issues. I don't know why people bother to be honest. Copyrighted ideas won't work.


      Considering there is Harry Potter, Star Wars, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Cars, Toy Story and Spongebob, Minecraft... there is plenty of room for licensed sets.

      LEGO also has a DC Comics licence for the Lego Batman games, etc... so who knows we might eventually get DC Comic sets.

      It will be harder to obtain, but there is nothing wrong with trying!

      Shaun of the Dead would certainly have worked had Lego agreed. I don't blame them for not agreeing, but I'm just saying that it probably would have worked else wise.

      Anyway, I hope Zelego happens, though it I'm completely unsure about the outcome.

    Tetris Autobot? It's Soundwave as a Game Boy! He ain't no Autobot!

    Shame that this one got featured when it's so clearly inferior to this one:

    I doubt Nintendo would give Lego the license to make a Zelda set anyway.
