Nothing quite gets my nostalgia brain excited quite like LEGO and Nintendo. On their own, each played a huge part of my childhood and filled my heart with glee — and when combined, they’re immensely more powerful! Sure, we have LEGO Super Mario, but what about Nintendo’s other all-stars? Don’t they deserve some bricky love as well? Enter the concept for a Metroid Dread line of LEGO created by the talented @l_di_ego on Twitter.
I have been sooo hyped for Dread… that I couldn't resist to make ANOTHER #LEGO #METROID project, this time focused on the upcoming game from @mercurysteam
If it reaches 10k supports, it will be revised by The @LEGO_Group #OperationMetroidDread pic.twitter.com/roPlgl4rWp

Included in the concept is Samus Aran in her brand-new Fusion-esque suit and a model of the E.M.M.I that looks like it jumped straight out of Bionicle! The concept is currently available to be voted on over at LEGO IDEAS — but don’t get your hopes too high quite yet, as Nintendo has turned down every IDEA to date. Either way, just looking at what could be is good enough for me. If you want to see even more amazing LEGO concepts, make sure to check out @l_di_ego. They even crafted a classic Metroid set, complete with Samus’ ship and Ridley!
🎉Thank you everyone for boosting the LEGO Metroid project to the 10k supports.!🎊My LEGO Flickr MOC gallery has been expanded to include HR pictures of all the updates, including a few views that weren't show in the project page.https://t.co/pjVkLCwZGo #LEGO #NINTENDO #Metroid pic.twitter.com/4YmhN9Q8v1
