Another awesome project:
[ Legend of Zelda: King of Red Lions ]
Due to the fact that I believe it is absolutely necessary for a single new mold to be created for Link's Hat/Hair/Ears I have decided to donate the 1% of profit should this set be created, back to LEGO Cuusoo, to help pay for the new mold. Perhaps if Nintendo agrees to hand over the license for the Legend of Zelda IP They can make a small offer that will cover any remaining costs. I understand this is something that is very unlikely to happen but the worst I can get is a "No" Until then, I and currently 7500+ will hope for a "Yes".
This is not the first LEGO Legend of Zelda (LoZ) set proposal. However with the recent dismissal of the first LEGO LoZ project I felt it necessary to keep the ideas flowing in hopes that by hard work and determination Legend of Zelda and LEGO fans will be able to merge the two things they love most. Since the reason the first one didn't make it through was because of too many custom molds and this one would really only need one for links hat. A new Shield and Sword mold would be ideal to depict the Zelda Franchise better but not completely necessary. Just the thought of a single official Link Minifigure would make so many LoZ inspired sets really come to life.
Thank you for checking out my project and if you like the idea please support it!
Here is the front of the set complete with pots, skulls, and breakable pillars just like in the game.
Here you can see the back of the set. After Link battles his way past the Iron Knuckle, the door slides open with a turn of the knob shown here, and a yellow light brick turns on above the door. Behind the door Link finds a boss key.
Here are the figures and accessories that come with the set.
We have a very pose able brick-built Iron Knuckle, and a custom Link Minifigure. The Link Minifigure is not as high quality as I would like as the details are all hand painted rather than printed professionally and the head piece is made from sculpey and is not very smooth and prone to chipping, but you get the basic idea. For more detailed concepts on the Link Minifigure click on the link at the top of this page.
Also I have gather 6 pots that hold two red rupees two green rupees and two pink healing fairies. And of course the treasure chest at the end holding a key to another dungeon. WHat other dungeon you ask? well that depends on what kind of dungeon you want to build!
Here's a fun fact: When you put a rupee in a pot it sticks to the inside and doesn't come out when you turn it upside down. Even when you knock it against the table it still doesn't come out. In order to get the rupee to pop out you have to actually toss it at a hard surface much like Link does in the game and the rupee will come right out! I highly recommend trying it if you own one of these pots.
I always like it when you get a poster with a set. So I designed this poster that could be shipped in the box. I think it would look pretty cool next to all the LoZ posters a lot of fans already have hanging on their walls.
