In the event you’ve ever been on Lego Concepts, you’ve got most likely seen some fan The Legend of Zelda units. Effectively, not any extra, as Lego has apparently banned Zelda concepts from the service.
If you have not been on Lego Ideas, nevertheless, let me rapidly clarify it for you. Followers can submit concepts (get it?) for Lego units, offering proof of ideas for what they may seem like. Typically it is easy issues like a automotive, however there have really been some notable licenced entries, like a Steamboat Willie set. So after all, followers have tried to get some Zelda units by means of, however in keeping with Brick Fanatics, that will not be doable any extra.
In keeping with Brick Fanatics, the problem comes right down to a “licence battle,” which the Lego Concepts web site notifies you of when submitting an thought as an current IP. Brick Fanatics additionally offered an instance of what it appears like once you try different IP, corresponding to Mario Bros, which is not allowed as a result of already current units, or Pokemon, which additionally has a licence battle, although on this case it is as a result of Mega Construx (which you most likely bear in mind as Mega Bloks) holds the rights for brick-based creations.
Followers have beforehand tried to get Zelda-themed units by means of earlier than, with some even getting by means of to the overview stage, although clearly they’ve all been rejected.
There’s a number of doable the explanation why Zelda submissions are not allowed. One, which might probably be everybody’s most popular motive, is that Lego and Nintendo are literally working collectively on one thing for the sequence, which would not be too stunning contemplating the Mario units.
One other chance is that an organization like Mega Construx, or in any other case, holds the rights, which Lego is conscious of behind the scenes, so cannot enable any extra Concepts units on the positioning.
Alternatively, it might simply be that Nintendo have expressly mentioned it does not need to do a Zelda web site, as there clearly has been communication between the 2 corporations for the Mario units. Possibly we’ll by no means discover out, although I personally would not thoughts including a Lego Hyrule fortress to the gathering.
