Metroid has become the latest Nintendo franchise to provide inspiration for a LEGO CUUSOO project, following in the footsteps of previously submitted The Legend of Zelda concepts.

Drawing on the opening to Super Metroid, if approved the submitted concept will see the creation of a LEGO set comprising of a Samus Aran minifigure accompanied by the bounty hunter’s Gunship and nemesis Ridley to construct brick-by-brick.

“There is no question that Metroid has plenty of set possibilities”, concept creator Lizardman explains. “However, since a project can only propose one set I had to choose what I felt best exemplified the franchise.

“For me that one set is a recreation of the opening of what is often considered the best game in the series: Super Metroid. This set would include Samus with her gunship and her nemesis Ridley to reenact the opening of the game”.

As per usual, the project will need to secure 10,000 supporters before it is reviewed by a board of LEGO employees, who will then make the decision as to whether they would be able to manufacture it.
