Zelda fans, the wait is finally over. LEGO and Nintendo have just announced an official playset based on The Legend of Zelda, and it’s everything you hoped for and more. The rumors were true, and the Great Deku Tree set is here, ready to bring a piece of Hyrule into your home.

The Great Deku Tree Set

The Great Deku Tree 2-in-1 set includes a whopping 2,500 pieces and is available for preorder now at $299.99, with shipping starting in September. This set allows you to build two iconic versions of the Great Deku Tree: the green summer foliage version from Ocarina of Time and the pink spring cherry blossoms version from Breath of the Wild.

Unique Play Features

  • Ocarina of Time Build: Features the Great Deku Tree in Kokiri Forest, complete with a section inspired by the game’s first dungeon and a replica of Link’s house in Kokiri Village.
  • Breath of the Wild Build: Includes hidden Koroks and the Master Sword in its pedestal, along with an overgrown, ancient look.

The set comes with various versions of Link, including child Link and adult Link in the green Hero of Time tunic from Ocarina of Time, and Link in the blue Champion’s tunic from Breath of the Wild. Other characters and accessories include a buildable Skulltula, Hestu with his maracas, fairies, Princess Zelda, and more. Plus, the set has interactive features that let you animate the tree’s facial expressions.

Fan Demand and Official Release

Fans have been eagerly waiting for an official Zelda-themed LEGO set. Despite rejecting fan-submitted ideas for years and even banning Zelda submissions in 2022 due to licensing conflicts, LEGO has finally delivered. The demand for this set has been high, with rumors about an official release starting to circulate back in February of last year.

This release joins other Nintendo properties like Mario, Animal Crossing, and Donkey Kong that have received the LEGO treatment in recent years.

Pricing and Availability

The LEGO Legend of Zelda Great Deku Tree set is available for preorder now at $299.99, with an official release date of September 1. For more details and to secure your preorder, visit LEGO’s official product page.
