Welcome to Project Metroid.
I have made this project with more hopes for another Nintendo game will be immortalised in Lego.
I have made several edits to this project, and the largest one of all is focusing on a single set. Below you will find some images and information on the New Lego Metroid set proposal and a link to the second of my Metroid Projects themed on Mother Brain.
Any minor updates I make will be down the bottom. *
I'll add some links to other Nintendo inspired Cuusoo projects, please help support them all and spread the word.

Information about the project:
As I have designed the sets/models within Lego Digital Designer, all parts and colours are currently in manufaction I would assume, and as such should help towards the possibility that this project would be turned into a real set should I achieve the 10,000 supporters.
To make Samus and Ridely, exclusive detailing would be needed, I would assume however that the cuusoo team are prepared for these instances and would agree to do so.
The Varia Suit Samus mini figure would need detailing on her chest (front and back), legs (front and sides) and possibley her arms, the LDD items named "Mini Visor 2" and "Helmet W.03.2 Shaft At Front", and finally Samus' face printed on the standard Minifig head.
I have added an optional chest/shoulder item that exsists in LDD, and have given an example of how it might look with detailing. I have also added a sketch of an possible shoulder pad piece that would need a new mold, but I must say this is only there an "ideal" extra as I don't want the project to hinge on needing any new pieces. But it would be nice under ideal circumstances.
The only major hurdle I could see would be getting the support and licencing needed.
