As we’ve reported previously, many Nintendo enthusiasts have been striving for their Animal Crossing or Legend of Zelda LEGO concepts to become actual play sets through the LEGO Ideas website – where fans can vote for their favorite ideas to be considered by the LEGO Group. Well, here’s a little something that might appeal to Metroid fans instead!
A new campaign on the LEGO IDEAS website has cropped up – with the aim of re-creating Samus Aran and her gunship as a beautiful play set! As seen above, the proposed set would also include a Metroid in captivity and some Space Pirates for Samus to tussle with.
Here are a small selection of preview images for the proposed set below, along with more details about the idea from its creator:
“Based on the classic “Metroid” videogame franchise from Nintendo, this building toy features the bounty hunter’s most recognisable vessel, as well as some key elements from the entire series.
- Carry the jar with the Metroid in suspended animation inside the cargo hold.
- Move the Technic liftarm to drop Samus inside the gunship to restore health and ammo. Then withdraw the axle at the back to exit the gunship via the lower hatch.
- Remove the windscreen to access the cockpit.
- Flaps can be open to reveal some inner details.
- Modify the exposed intakes to conceal them.
- Includes two moveable stud shooters.
- Adjust the three bottom pads to land in any surface.
- Open the secret door to drop Samus as a Morph Ball.
- Includes a minifigure of Samus Aran’s iconic Power Suit.
- Includes a secret minifigure (to be revealed only when the project gets 9900 supports).
- Includes 2 Zebesian Space Pirates.
- + Bonus content to be added at certain milestones.Samus next mission: to become part of a new LEGO Ideas product.She NEEDS YOU. Can you help her? Now is your turn!”
