LEGO: Iron Knuckle Encounter by WesTalbott LEGO: Iron Knuckle Encounter by WesTalbott
*EDIT* This set is now an official Cuusoo idea, please support and share with others so we can show LEGO what we want!

This is NOT a real lego set, I just decided to go all the way with it and do some thorough box art.

I would LOVE this but, i am afraid that LEGO will say no because of all the new LEGO molds they would have to make.

The only new molds I see are the hat and shield.

I completely want this to become a set. For one, it combines my two favorite things: Zelda and Lego. I already threw my hat into the ring over on the Cuusoo site, and I think you are a very talented artist, so Lego picking this up would be a dream come true not just for you, but also for the millions of Zelda fans worldwide.

I supported! Seriously, Lego would be STUPID not to take advantage of creating this. They're sitting on gold (if they can get the rights, which Nintendo also would be stupid not to do this either).

Thanks! seeing your name just brought back old memories of Zelda Universe. In a couple weeks I'm going to try and film a video of the set like LEGO does their designer videos and post it on ZU if you know of anyone in particular over there that could continue sharing it let me know. I'll definitely need as many hardcore Zelda fans supporting this as possible.

Heh yah, good ol' days. I'm actually not active on ZU anymore, but their twitter usually finds awesome Zelda stuff, you could tweet and share with them. :)

Good luck, I really hope this works out! :D

You actually don't need a credit card. it's purely hypothetical. If it is actually made then you can always borrow someone else's but to support it all you have to do is click the big 'Support' button and follow the steps. It just lets LEGO know that you and hopefully 9,999 others want this set made.

This is outstanding! Seriously, love the presentation! I'll get supporting straight away! How may I ask did you make that hat?

It's sculpy and painted with acrylic. It's a little rougher than the photo shows and has since been broken haha. It served it's purpose though. Thanks for the support, and if you would share it with all of the resources that got you to 10,000 I would be extremely grateful. In a way I am just trying to continue what you and Ragaru started so we have a steady flow of zelda fans telling LEGO what they want until they are forced to cave or break the bad news that Nintendo has refused.

Ah oh dear! You've got the hair perfect! It is such a disaster trying to 3D model! I personally just emailed every news site/posted on Zelda fan site forum. Once when I put it up, and again when it got to about 5000. I'd recommend messaging the same people on those sites that posted your poster!

Sculpey, acrylic paint, and microns then a bit of smoothing in photoshop.

my comment cant even describe how awesome it looks. i mean, you have a gift for making up sets which rarely anyone in the Lego community can achieve. Thats what had me into it so far, i was like...YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME "GASPS*!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love this model, especially because it succeeds where I feel a lot of other Zelda set ideas fail, in that it has playable functionality that reproduces the sense of adventure and discovery of the game series. A lot of models try to be just that, models; and as a result lose some of the charm of both Zelda and Lego.

It could be real. Submit it to the Lego Cuusoo Site...

That is where the Back to the Future and Minecraft sets came from.
