Nintendo and Lego reveal $300 Great Deku Tree set

Nintendo and Lego’s Great Deku Tree set is a two-in-one homage to two incredible Zelda games: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The $300 kit includes 2,500 pieces that allow you to build a Great Deku Tree scene from either of the iconic games. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

“In addition to the Great Deku Tree, the set comprises iconic sceneries from the video games including the Master Sword pedestal from Breath of the Wild, as well as Link’s House from Ocarina of Time, allowing enthusiasts freedom to customise their display,” Lego said in a news release. “The build is elegantly mounted on stands, providing an effortless showcase of the set.”

Lego’s Animal Crossing sets are even cuter than I expected
Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma said Nintendo wanted the Deku Tree as the first Zelda set represented in Lego. Here’s how Lego and Nintendo describe the duality of the set:

Notably, both builds offer interactive features. In the Breath of the Wild rendition, the Great Deku Tree’s face can be animated with the simple press of a lever, while the Ocarina of Time Great Deku Tree version boasts a captivating mechanism: when activated, its mouth opens, revealing a cleverly designed Skulltula (a spider-like enemy from the games) that descends into its depths.

In the Breath of the Wild version, enthusiasts will marvel at the Great Deku Tree adorned in vibrant pink blossoms, accompanied by the iconic Master Sword pedestal. Notably, this rendition boasts an engaging feature: the ability to animate the tree’s expressive eyebrows and mouth, adding depth to the build.

Meanwhile, in the Ocarina of Time version, builders will encounter a lush green foliage-adorned Great Deku Tree. This version includes Link’s House, a pivotal element tied to the Ocarina of Time narrative, adding an extra layer of nostalgia and authenticity to the set. It’s worth mentioning that regardless of which version you choose to build, you will have the ability to construct both the Master Sword pedestal and Link’s House as smaller models.

The set includes four minifigures: Link and Princess Zelda in their Breath of the Wild outfits, alongside young Link and Link from Ocarina of Time. There are also buildable characters like Hestu the Korok and his Korok pals, Deku Babas, Navi, the Deku Sprout, and a Skulltula.

The Great Deku Tree kit is expected to ship on Sept. 1, but pre-orders are open already. At $299.99, it’s a pricey kit — but the level of detail seemingly makes the cost worth it. With this kit, Nintendo continues its expansive partnership with Lego; so far, Lego’s created nearly 30 Super Mario Bros. kits, as well as Animal Crossing: New Horizon sets and classic consoles, too. cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx cx
