[Note to mods: I felt that this was relevant enough to Castle sets to be put in this section, as it deals with a medieval fantasy world possibly becoming a series of LEGO sets. Feel free to move if I was mistaken.]
I'm sure by now most, if not all of us, are familiar with LEGO CUUSOO. CUUSOO is a program where LEGO fans submit ideas to LEGO and garner support. If 10,000 supporters are reached on an idea, LEGO will consider making the idea into a set/theme. So far, 3 ideas have been given the green light and became sets, while numerous others reached 10,000 but were not followed through for various reasons(Shaun of the Dead
is an example of this, where the film's gory nature prompted LEGO not to continue the project).
Recently, an idea on CUUSOO proposing LEGO Legend of Zelda
has reached 10,000 votes. The CUUSOO project proposed a variety of LEGO Legend of Zelda
sets be made, spanning numerous games from the series. Now that the appropriate number of supporters have been reached, LEGO will consider the idea. Although it has reached 10,000 votes, LEGO still needs to give the A-OK regarding the project.
For those unaware of what Legend of Zelda
is, it is one of Nintendo's biggest flagship video game franchises, dating back to 1986. Alongside Mario
, Legend of Zelda
is one of Nintendo's most popular and recognizable franchises in the video game industry.

So, what you guys think about this? Are you excited to hear this news, and are you a fan of the Legend of Zelda
series of games? Did you offer your support for this project, or is this the first time you are hearing of it? If this idea was to be approved by LEGO, would you want a full LoZ theme or just a single set?
Personally, I think this is possibly the greatest news I have heard in while. I am a huge fan of the Legend of Zelda
series of games, in fact they are my favorite series of video games. I hope that LEGO will make a full theme out of this, but now that we have reached the point on CUUSOO where it's out of our hands, it's only a matter of time until we find out where this will be going.
