OVERVIEW

“The inaugural LEGO Legend of Zelda set features the versatile 2-in-1 Great Deku Tree, launching on September 1, 2024, priced at $299.99, and comprising 2500 pieces. It offers models from both the Ocarina of Time and the Breath of the Wild, along with four minifigures representative of these iconic periods. Note: The two versions cannot be constructed at the same time. This set is a part of LEGO’s 18+ Sets for Adults category, making it an exceptional addition for collectors and enthusiasts of The Legend of Zelda franchise.”

LEGO has officially announced the launch of its first-ever The Legend of Zelda LEGO set. This release follows longstanding speculation that LEGO would explore the iconic Hyrule landscape, adding The Legend of Zelda to its lineup of celebrated Nintendo collaborations like Super Mario and Animal Crossing.

The announcement was made via a post on X by Nintendo, which included a video preview of what fans can expect from LEGO’s inaugural Zelda-themed offering. The set, known as The Great Deku Tree, is slated for release on September 1, 2024.

Currently, The Great Deku Tree set stands alone and is not part of an expansive The Legend of Zelda series like other Nintendo franchises. It falls within LEGO’s “Sets for Adults” category, designated for those 18 and older. These sets typically include more intricate diorama-style builds, helmets, or wall art. However, based on fan response, it’s possible LEGO may develop a full The Legend of Zelda series in the future, much like it expanded the Sonic the Hedgehog line after the popularity of the 18+ Green Hill Zone set.

Features of the New LEGO Legend of Zelda Set

Listed on the LEGO website for $299.99, The Great Deku Tree set features 2500 pieces. It uniquely offers a 2-in-1 design that spans two distinct time periods from the renowned adventure series. This set includes one model based on the Great Deku Tree’s depiction in the 1998 Ocarina Of Time and another from the more recent Breath Of The Wild and Tears Of The Kingdom games. The Ocarina of Time version is 35cm/13.5 inches wide by 33cm/13 inches tall, while the Breath of the Wild version is slightly wider but shorter at 39cm/15.5 inches wide by 31cm/12 inches tall. It also includes four minifigures representing both time frames:

  1. Young Link (Ocarina of Time)
  2. Link (Ocarina of Time)
  3. Link (Breath of the Wild)
  4. Zelda (Breath of the Wild)

Note: It is not possible to build both versions of The Great Deku Tree simultaneously.

This LEGO set is a definite must-have for any collector and fan of The Legend of Zelda. The dual designs of The Great Deku Tree feature numerous intricate details and hidden nods to the games, as showcased on the box art, offering a rich and engaging building experience.
