“It seems the time has come for the boy without a fairy to begins his jorney”.
Are you ready to embark on a fascinating adventure? The Legend of Zelda is an excellent video game saga but especially, The Ocarina of Time marked a before and after in those of us who were born and raised in the 90s. I have always dreamed of a Zelda Lego set and since I did not know which region to choose in such a wonderful and varied world I decided to build a detailed replica of the Hyrule map at microscale size. In this way, the next generations of children will have fun as we did discovering this classic video game, revolutionary in terms of technique and script in it’s time.(It went on sale in Europe on December 11 from the year 1998).
I have designed it slowly and carefully with the intention not to neglect any important aspect (by) and for the biggest fans of The Legend of Zelda and Lego.The map is lighter than it appears and it measures approximately 40 centimeters. As you progress in its construction you will realize that the first 600 pieces mark the contour and accesses of each region leaving space for all the important details. Every corner is infused with pure magic and treasures for the eyes. I would like to dedicate more pieces to the different dungeons but due to space on the map I could only include the entrance.
Besides, it would be wonderful to have the Original Soundtrack with the songs of each region ordered as we advance in the assembly instructions: in this way the sensation of traveling through Hyrule will be a completely immersive experience.
It Includes the location of: (with every region most representative details and the name of each place you will find it printed on tiles or by stickers)
-All regions and routes
- Kokiri Forest
- Great Deku Tree
- Lost Woods
- Sacred Forest Meadow
- Forest Temple
- Hyrule Field
- Lon Lon Ranch
- Kakariko Village with Windmill and Well of Three Features
- Graveyard and Entrance to Shadow Temple
- Death Mountain Trail
- Dodongo’s Cavern
- Death Mountain with Crater: Temple of Fire Entrance
- Zora River
- Zora Domain with Jabu-Jabu Lake and Ice Cavern.
- Hylia Lake with: Temple of Water Entrance and Fishing Pod
- Hyrule Castle Town with Market and Temple of Time
- Hyrule Castle with gardens
- Gerudo Valley
- Gerudo Fortress
- Haunted Wasteland and Desert of Colossus
- Temple of Spirits
-All dungeon's entrances
-All magic stones and medallions
-All 4 empty bottles
-All 6 Great fairy's fountains
-All eight final bosses in microscale: Gohma, King Dodongo, Barinade, Phantom Ganon, Volvagia, Morpha, Bongo Bongo and Sorceress Sisters: Twinrova.
As a bonus, I have decided to add most of the key items that link collects during his adventure (including the dungeon specific items: Compass, Dungeon Map, Small Key, Boss Key and treasure chest). Those objects are: deku shield, deku nut, deku stick, fairy slingshot, Goron bracelet, bombs, boomerang, fairy Bow, fire arrows, ice arrows, light arrows, hookshot/longshot, Megaton hammer, lens of truth, Zelda letter, Fairy Ocarina, Ocarina of Time and Fairy Sword and a couple of heart-containers. It would be very nice to have personalized pieces of the fairy Navi, the ocarinas or even the master sword.
I think it could be a nice lego set because this videogame was fantastic years ago and even today, it still gains unconditional fans. I am convinced that if there are video games in The legend of Zelda saga that could have an impact on international success as Lego sets, they are: Ocarina of Time (which is the one that I have chosen) and Majora Mask. Building it involves touring every corner of Hyrule and reliving the epic adventures of Link and the fairy Navi. These video games are characterized by bringing a rich addition of puzzles and puzzles in addition to the classic action of an adventure and this fact fits perfectly to become a constructive lego challenge. In addition, it is a video game that transmits positive values such as friendship or environmentalism. Of course I have to admit that building Hyrule has been really fun and I would like to share this experience with you.
So I ask, one more time to make sure: are you ready for the quest of puzzles, trips and duels? Make sure you gather all the key items before entering the dungeon or you will regret it!
Bricks: 2.328 (I have not wanted to reach the maximum of 3000 to be able to add any extra detail that you consider appropriate)
Minifigures/Characters: young Link (The hero of Time-Triforce of Courage), Navi the fairy, Gaebora in his bird form, young princess Zelda (Triforce of Wisdom) and evil Ganondorf from Gerudos (Triforce of Power). Another interesting option would be to add to: adult Link and adult Zelda, or even the 6 Sages. Some minor enemies as: Lizalfos, Stalfos, Dark Link, white wolves and Iron Knuckle. would also be appropriate but all this I leave to your opinion and the review of the experts.
To say goodbye, I leave a fragment of the creation of Hyrule, extracted from this video game:
"Before time began, before spirits and life existed...
Three golden goddesses descended upon the chaos that was Hyrule...
Din, the goddess of power...
Nayru, the goddess of wisdom...
Farore, the goddess of courage...
With her strong flaming arms, she cultivated the land and created the red earth.
Poured her wisdom onto the earth and gave the spirit of law to the world.
With her rich soul, produced all life forms which would uphold the law.
The three great goddess, their labors completed, departed for the heavens.
And golden sacred triangles remained at the point where the goddesses left the world.
Since then, the sacred triangles have become the basis of our world's providence.
And, the resting place of the triangles has become the Sacred Realm."
Again I happily and proudly share with you my best design to date. Thanks so much for watching and support it. It has been a lot of work and it will only be possible, first of all thanks to everyone who loves this game. Let's make the impossible possible together with Lego bricks. Do you give it a try?
