Product Idea

Metroid: Samus Aran's Gunship

Mission Progress: 30% Complete - Zebesian Ambush!

On

  • For the first time, we are facing our first obstacle in our mission. I't time to struggle against the dreaded... budget: The production budget for this hypothetical set. Would it be possible to include some zebesian space pirates within that budget?

  • The set is expected to include a pair of zebesians, but you are welcome to tell in the comments the number and/or the variants do you actually prefer. NOTE: Keep in mind the 10 designs showed in the following picture are just design alternatives. The set is NOT expected to include all of them.


Mission Progress: 25% Complete - Helmet Update

On

  • We have reached a new milestone in the roadmap. It's time for a suit upgrade!
  • After all the request, Samus has finally got a helmet. The armor piece has also been replaced for a more detailed existing element, keeping the 2D design decoration from "Samus Returns"
  • This is the final selection of helmet designs. Fell free to pick your favourites in the "Comments" section. 

A - CUSTOM / NEW PART

  • A completely all-new 3D element design never released before. Considering the relevance/iconicity of the character, and the qualitty everyone expects for a LEGO product, this should be the most suitable option.
  • NOTE- LEGO Ideas does not allow new part designs for projects ideas. Therefore, design B would appear in the main pictures instead of this one. This design is featured here purely to persuade The LEGO Group to break that rule.
  • A new mold would require some extra time to develop the final product. In any case, "Metroid Prime 4" is proof that this fanbase has a considerable level of patience.

  • This design consist of three different plastic sections. The forehead and the visor can also be printed. This would allow to exploit the same mold to make different collectable variants. * NOTE: Only one helmet is expected to be included in the set.
