After months of planning, 10,000 votes of support and weeks of consideration, LEGO has decided the fate of the proposed Legend of Zelda themed set… and turned it down, adding the rather blunt line “This project has been reviewed and is not being considered for production” tothe project’s proposal page. The reason? The bespoke molds needed to make the minifigures would be too expensive.
The company did issue a full, more friendly-worded statement, which reads as follows:
Results of the LEGO Review for The Legend of Zelda
First and foremost, congratulations again to MINGLES for reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO, and toward everyone for all of the support of the Legend of Zelda project! The Summer LEGO Review has concluded and the LEGO Review Board has arrived at its decision about the four projects in review.
The Legend of Zelda project shows broad support among gaming enthusiasts. This project has provided great inspiration and concept work for what could be a very nice product.
