You might remember that back in early November, we shared the news that anyone trying to submit a Zelda-themed creation to the LEGO Ideas website would now be met with a message that reads, “we’ve already evaluated this IP and have determined that we can’t allow submissions based on it.” Specifically, LEGO says that a “license conflict” prevents them from doing so. You’d think that would be the end of all Zelda-related LEGO fan ideas, but apparently that’s not the case!
Somehow, a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild LEGO Ideas set is currently in review. We’re not sure if there’s some sort of loophole here that allows the set or LEGO accidentally let this one slip through, but either way, the set is currently in review. That means fans can sit back and wait to see what LEGO do with this project.
In reality, it’s pretty much a given that LEGO will squash the idea based on what we discussed above. Still, you can keep fingers and toes crossed for a different outcome. Since it’s quite likely this set will never get made, why not enjoy it while you still can? Take a look at this fan-created Breath of the Wild LEGO set here.
They need more Nintendo sets. At the very least they should add DK since he's in the movie.
Nintendo you would empty my wallet if you did Zelda themed Lego sets.
I would say this probably fell through the cracks somehow. I bet Nintendo and Lego already have concrete plans for Zelda sets.
Lego is no longer taking new submissions, however this set was submitted/posted/and reached 10k before the new rule. Hence why it made it to review
