The Lego ideas Metroid Set, that we were excited to promote last May (at 873 supporters) has reached its goal of 10,000 supporters! Not only has this project reached its goal, but it has evolved into an amazing, all-in-one, package that pays homage to the history of Metroid with an assortment of creatures and ship designs.
To start, it will now be possible to create Samus’ Gunship from Metroid Prime & Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, all in the same set!

So what happens now? According to the Lego ideas website, the Metroid set will now go to expert review in which, I’m assuming, they will approach Nintendo to see if they give the green light to make the project a reality. Regardless of what happens, the success of this project sends the message to Nintendo that dedicated Metroid fans are on the ready to support their favorite bounty hunter, when she’s given the proper love & attention to detail that this project has demonstrated throughout.
The best of luck to stellar designer L-DI-EGO! For a more detailed account of the project, from its conception to now, visit its official Lego ideas site here. Also, make sure you check out the awesome HD pictures, of creator L-DI-EGO’s designs and work, at his Flickr account.
