The Legend of Zelda, whether you played it for the first time 25 years ago –or have never played it at all, there is no denying its brilliance. A classic tale of a small hero rising up to strike down evil and rescue the princess, Legend of Zelda has enticed gamers of all ages for over a quarter of a century. Many things are iconic to this beloved series; Link, Ganon, Zelda, Epona, Bombs, Arrows, etc… but especially the Master Sword.
Also known as “The Blade of Evil’s Bane”, the Master Sword is the instrument by which Link defeats the Dark Lord, Ganondorf. A staple of the Zelda franchise, it is widely considered the greatest video game weapon of all time.
Over the years there have been various real-life incarnations of the Master Sword, all featuring various combinations of plastic, wood, and/or steel. But there is one medium it has never touched upon –Lego bricks.
What better way to represent this iconic blade than with a medium that allows you to forge the Master Sword with your own hands?
Certainly it would not be for serious play. But it would still be a beautiful looking tribute to one of the greatest game series of all time. More in the vein of architecture sets, or Ultimate Collector’s Edition sets than anything else.
