The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
In three days, the moon will fall and the land of Termina will meet with a terrible fate. Can you save it in time? I suppose you could try building LEGO Majora's Mask.
It is a Majora's Mask model in the same way as the recent busts line-up but fitting to the language of the The Legend of Zelda theme.
- The set is made out of 3 builds: The glorious Mask itself, the base with Power Functions battery pack and lighting (there's a light switch on the side of the base), and a little Skull Kid figurine with a small version of Majora's Mask.
- Aside from a mask with the classic colors, I had the idea in mind of a Limited Special Edition with a Chrome Golden Majora's Mask. Due to copyright issues I can't show the original. It connects via an axle so it's compatible with Bionicle heads. Even the size is on point if I recall correctly.
- The large Majora's Mask is easily removed from the base as it connects with 3 thick bricks while only using 3 studs to keep it safe and sturdy.
- The eyes light up thanks to the Power Functions, as long as it's fully connected to the base.
- The small tree trunk Skull Kid stands on freely turns 360°, and Skull Kid is more articulate than a LEGO Minifigure as he has a somewhat turnable waist and fully movable elbows; but in return he can't turn his wrists.
- You might have noticed by now the model is beautiful, but there seem to be a few floating parts on bricks that don't have studs on them. Those are supposed to become printed bricks or stickers.
- The backside is largely studless. In the middle of the mask studs change direction in the opposite way. I wanted the backside to be completely smooth without any brickholes visible.
To be honest I made this because I saw a large potential in Majora's Mask becoming an actual set. It is definitely aimed at the AFOL market on the same level as the Star Wars and Marvel busts, and the mosaics that recently came out. People wanted a Zelda set for a very long time and it's not the right time yet for playsets so why not play in on the nostalgia and make one of the most iconic and best selling merchandise items of the Zelda franchise into a LEGO set. I mean it's not like it's not gonna sell well, otherwise Nintendo wouldn't keep re-releasing Majora's Mask merchandise (I still want that cap) and First4Figures wouldn't release a smaller version since the large model is very much sought after.
Besides wanting a LEGO Majora's Mask myself I would like to invest that 1% into working out a new piece of technology I came up with. In short it can make large tower computers really, very tiny without making a single noise, and while keeping the performance of the best available hardware.
That's the main reason I spent 2 or 3 months developing and thinking about what would be the best fit for this set and theme in general. I made about 7 complete redesigns of each build until I had something people might actually want to have at their home.
I really hope you like it. If you support it, it might actually end up on your desk; that would be awesome and great. Maybe a bit chaotic. You know what, just put it in your living room; it's a gorgeous model and guests are gonna love it anyway. I intentionally left out a nameplate as it would disrupt the design too much and wouldn't get the conversation going.
