The Metroid: Samus Aran’s LEGO Ideas set has entered the ‘in review’ stage

The Metroid: Samus Aran’s LEGO Ideas set has entered the ‘in review’ stage

Do you believe that dreams can come true? Wish really hard if so, because that immensely cool-looking Metroid set proposed on the LEGO Ideas website in April of last year has finally progressed to the next stage. After receiving in excess of 10,000 supporters, designer L-DI-EGO’s set is now ‘in review’ by the professional LEGO boffins.

Should they deem it as viable set that people would be willing to buy, the uncannily accurate brick-based representation of Samus Aran’s Gunship could join the likes of Back to the Future: DeLorean, Voltron and The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine in being given the go-ahead. The set itself actually looks rather quant in comparison to some of those other examples, so there’s every chance this nifty depiction of Nintendo’s classic sci-fi series could be set on your shelf rather soon.

News that the Metroid: Samus Aran’s LEGO Ideas set had passed into the next stage was picked up by Thomas Leroy on Twitter, who noted “I just received an email from LEGO telling me that Samus Aran's ship is now in the ‘In Review’ state”.

As you can see from the images embedded in the Tweet, the set would come complete with a Mino Figure of Samus Aran herself, as well as her iconic gunship seen in the beginning of all the early games. There’s even a Metroid creature itself contained in a watery tube. Details on what is needed for the Metroid set to get full approval aren’t explicitly known, yet it’s likely that the thumb’s up from Nintendo itself is one of the most important factors.

With how poorly the Metroid series has been treated in recent years, here’s hoping the Japanese publisher is willing to have Samus’ adventures LEGO-fied. 2021 actually marks the 35th anniversary of the beloved Sci-Fi franchise (alongside The Legend of Zelda), but there’s been no additional word on Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch in quite some time. Please Nintendo, make up for it by letting us drool over this LEGO set.
