There’s been a serious LEGO high going on for a few years now; it seems like anything with a significant amount of popularity has its own LEGO play set and/ or LEGO video game, most notably Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Star Wars. I get it; back when LEGO was the predecessor toy to Sim City we were just little tots, building whatever we wanted, creating worlds and characters. Now, seeing our favorite movies as LEGO figures is not only fun, it brings up that sense of nostalgia in us and allows the next generation to enjoy LEGOs as we did.
That being said, have you ever wanted a LEGO set of your favorite book or video game world? For example, I’ve always wondered why a Legend of Zelda LEGO set doesn’t exist… Well, turns out that they may just happen. Through LEGO CUUSOO you pitch an idea for a LEGO set and if you manage to get 10,000 supporters of your idea, it will be made a reality. A member of www.zeldauniverse.com, Mingles, pitched the idea for The Legend of Zelda and has a little over 5,000 supporters. Mingles offered displays of 3D models that he rendered himself of what some of pieces would looks like that; we can see Link with his iconic green get-up and blonde ‘do as well as the Wind Waker and the Skyward Sword.
Some other great pitches on LEGO CUSOO that are still in need of pledgers are a Back to the Future collection and even a Phineas and Ferb set. A pitch for Shaun of the Dead and Minecraft achieved the 10,000-follower quota so maybe we’ll be seeing that on the shelves soon…. I think I’ll pitch a Teen Titans set, guys.
