A Massive Legend of Zelda Lego Set Might’ve Leaked
For years, Lego and Nintendo fans have dreamed of releasing a Legend of Zelda themed set. And for years, that seemed unlikely, until Lego and Nintendo started working together on Mario sets and people wondered if maybe, just maybe, Zelda was next. Now, after proof last year that such a set was in the works, a Zelda-themed Lego set has apparently leaked via a private consumer survey and people are excited.
In the summer of 2020, Lego and Nintendo began releasing Mario-themed Lego playsets that featured iconic characters and enemies from the famous platformer franchise. Nintendo and Lego continued this partnership with a bricked-up NES and TV later that same year. Then in 2021 more Mario themed sets were released and Nintendo and Lego released a large Super Mario 64 block set. In 2022 they released a giant Lego Bowser. It looks like the partnership between the two big companies has been successful, so it only makes sense that the two would want to keep the sauce turning with a new set based on The Legend of Zelda franchise.
As Lego news site PromoBricks reports, a whole slew of sets have apparently leaked via an investigation someone took part in. The person wasn’t supposed to share the images of the sets included in the online survey, but hey, here we are. And one of the investigation sets is a Legend of Zelda Deku playset. You can see the images of the Lego set allegedly leaked on Reddit.

Apparently, the Great Deku Tree will be two sets in one, allowing fans to choose either the look of Ocarina of Time or its appearance in Breath of the Wild. The minifigs that would be included in the set are Link with medium legs and in a green outfit inspired by his Ocarina of Time look and a Link and Zelda with normal minifig legs, both based on their Breath of the Wild appearances. The Breath of the Wild version of the set also contains leftover parts that allow you to build a brick-built version of Hetsu. According to PromoBricks, the set will include 1,920 pieces in total and will cost between $200 and $325.
G/O Media may receive a commission
Another piece of evidence that seems to confirm the release of a Zelda set came back in November of last year. It was around this time that Zelda and Nintendo fans discovered that Lego had blocked people from submitting new Lego Idea sets based on The Legend of Zelda. The official site cited a “license dispute” that has some wondering if Nintendo and Lego have their own Zelda in the works. And now it seems so.
Of course, while this investigation seems real and the evidence points to the set itself being legit, it’s worth noting that any unofficially leaked set may never see the light of day. Lego is still working on different sets and different themes and not all planned creations are released. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens. Perhaps a set like this could be released alongside Tears of the Kingdom, which will be released later this year…
