Zelda LEGO concept being considered by LEGO, could be turned into official Zelda LEGO that is real

At the end of last year Michael Inglis submitted a concept for Legend of Zelda Lego to Lego Cuusoo. The idea behind Lego Cuusoo is pretty simple: Have an idea for a Lego product, submit that product idea to the Lego Cuusoo website and if the product idea gets more than 10,000 supporters it is then considered by an expert 'Lego Jury' for turning into an official Lego product. And support for Michael Inglis' idea for Legend of Zelda Lego recently tipped over the crucial 10,000 supporters point. So the Lego Jury is now in the process of reviewing the idea.

Obviously we're all rooting for an outcome that involves Legend of Zelda being turned into Lego (and I'm personally doing some extra special rooting in the hope that Tingle will make the transformation from game character to choking hazard). What fully grown man wouldn't be deliriously excited by the prospect of being able to furnish his workstation with diminutive plastic caricatures of Link and Zelda and Ganondorf et al?

Above: Like this, but more real and with more Tingle

But before you start making space for a plastic Hyrulian diorama on your desk, heed this comment from Lego:

"The review is a thorough process and from its start, it will take several weeks. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a LEGO product based on the Legend of Zelda. Naturally before we can announce the results of the review, we will need to secure a license to produce this product--and we can't give an estimate on how long that will take."

Ah. Yes. That could take some time.

Our fingers will remain figuratively crossed while we wait.

    I haven't bought lego in a hell of a long time, but this would definitely make me change my mind about it. If this doesn't get made, I'm suing Lego. And all of it's sister/subsidiary/parents companies. Hell, I'll sue Scandinavia.

    Bring on the Water Temple set! LEGO should just go for acquiring licenses to the various 1st party Nintendo IPs I like the idea of Zelda sets, but I have trouble imagining what all would make up the sets (Gerudo's Fortress is the only thing I can really picture being made into a marketable set.) Whereas StarFox's Great Fox and arwings, Samus' shipm and Yoshi's island treehouse would make for plausable sets in a general Nintendo line. Can't wait to see where this goes regardless.

    NOOOOOOOO!!!!! We cannot let this project become a reality until they get link's arms and legs the right colors!

    I don't see why Nintendo wouldn't let them make LEGO Zelda, I mean, they wouldn't have to pay anything to make them and they'd still get a share of the profits. Its a win-win.

    Zelda, huh? Well, I know they've done Halo. So this might be interesting.

    Actually they didn't, that was Megablocks not lego.

    ^True. And there's a big difference between Mega Blocks and LEGO. First off, LEGO is cool.
