In a whirlwind of excitement, a recent leak has revealed a mythical LEGO set based on Nintendo's legendary franchise, The Legend of Zelda. Brace yourselves, fellow adventurers, for our beloved hero Link is about to embark on a bricktastic journey like never before!
The leak came to light when an Instagram user and renowned LEGO Leaker, 1414falconfan, couldn't resist teasing us with a tantalizing post. According to this daring informant, a Zelda-themed LEGO set is allegedly set for release in September 2024. While Nintendo and LEGO have yet to officially confirm this epic collaboration, the leaker claims that the set will consist of a staggering 2,500 pieces and be centered around the magnificent Great Deku Tree, a beloved icon from the Zelda universe that has graced our screens in titles such as the timeless classic, Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64.
Now, I know what you're thinking. Can we trust the word of this LEGO Leaker extraordinaire? Well, it turns out that 1414falconfan has a track record that speaks for itself. Their previous prediction about the LEGO Super Mario Piranha Plant set came true, and it landed in stores later that very same year. With such a reputation, it's hard not to get a tingling sense of excitement and anticipation for what lies ahead. Who knows, perhaps this leaker is our very own Hyrule historian?
But wait, there's more! Rumor has it that the set might include not one, but two minifigures of our courageous hero, Young Link. One from his Ocarina of Time escapades and the other from his daring adventures in Breath of the Wild. Picture it: miniature Links ready to save the day, each with their own unique charm and style. It's a collector's dream come true!
As if that weren't enough, 1414falconfan has also spilled the bricks on several other Nintendo-themed sets making their way to us this year. Brace yourselves, Animal Crossing enthusiasts, for not one, but two sets inspired by the charming life simulation game are allegedly gracing our shelves in August. And hold onto your warp pipes, because Sonic the Hedgehog is racing into the LEGO universe as well, bringing his undeniable speed and attitude with him. But that's not all, folks! Multiple Super Mario sets are reportedly on the horizon, adding even more excitement and endless creative possibilities to our brick-filled adventures.
Now, some keen-eyed fans have begun speculating that this is just the beginning of LEGO's love affair with The Legend of Zelda. After all, LEGO has a knack for expanding their themed lines way beyond our wildest imaginations. Just look at the ever-growing Super Mario line—evidence that LEGO might be in it for the long haul with our beloved Hylian hero. And let's not forget the highly-anticipated film adaptation of The Legend of Zelda that Nintendo has in the works. It's like a golden Triforce of publicity, destined to propel the franchise to new heights.
Speaking of LEGO's expanding universe, who would have thought they would venture into the mystical realms of the original Nintendo Entertainment System? The LEGO NES set has become a treasure coveted by collectors far and wide, cementing the partnership between these two iconic brands. With such success, it's no wonder rumors are swirling about even more licensed sets on the horizon. Who knows? We might just find ourselves assembling a brick-by-brick replica of Bella Swan's house from the Twilight saga. Sparkly vampires and all!
So, my fellow adventurers, mark your calendars for September 2024, as that's when the first-ever Legend of Zelda LEGO set is set to grace store shelves. Get ready to wield your imagination like the Master Sword, for a brick-built Hyrule awaits us all. With LEGO and The Legend of Zelda joining forces, there's no limit to the adventures we can create. So, grab your green tunics, gather your rupees, and prepare for a legendary journey that will bring joy to the hearts of gamers and LEGO enthusiasts alike. The legend begins anew, one brick at a time!
