LEGO Zelda Great Deku Tree 2-in-1 Set

Following previous rumors, LEGO and Nintendo just revealed a LEGO Zelda Great Deku Tree 2-in-1 Set. It will be available on September 1, 2024 for $300.

This marks the very first Zelda product from LEGO. Fans can not only build the Great Deku Tree as it appeared in Zelda: Ocarina of Time, but Breath of the Wild as well. The 2,500-piece set also “comprises iconic sceneries from the video games including the Master Sword pedestal from Breath of the Wild, as well as Link’s House from Ocarina of Time, allowing enthusiasts freedom to customize their display.”

Things wouldn’t be complete with some interactive features. For the Breath of the Wild version, the Great Deku Tree’s face can be animated with the press of a lever. Meanwhile, the Ocarina of Time Great Deku Tree edition has a mechanism that, when activated, its mouth opens, revealing a cleverly designed Skulltula that descends into its depths.

Here’s some additional information:

In the Breath of the Wild version, enthusiasts will marvel at the Great Deku Tree adorned in vibrant pink blossoms, accompanied by the iconic Master Sword pedestal. Notably, this rendition boasts an engaging feature: the ability to animate the tree’s expressive eyebrows and mouth, adding depth to the build.

Meanwhile, in the Ocarina of Time version, builders will encounter a lush green foliage-adorned Great Deku Tree. This version includes Link’s House, a pivotal element tied to the Ocarina of Time narrative, adding an extra layer of nostalgia and authenticity to the set. It’s worth mentioning that regardless of which version you choose to build, you will have the ability to construct both the Master Sword pedestal and Link’s House as smaller models.

As far as minifigures go, you’ll get Zelda and Link versions from Breath of the Wild as well as Young Link and Link from Ocarina of Time. Others include buildable characters and creatures such as Hestu the Korok (complete with his maracas), several smaller Koroks, Deku Babas, Navi the Fairy, the Deku Sprout, and a Skulltula.

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma had this to say about today’s announcement: 

“I’m really thrilled that The Legend of Zelda is joining the world of LEGO bricks, which has spurred the creative impulses of so many people of all ages. The Deku Tree was the first element from The Legend of Zelda we wanted to represent using LEGO bricks. This set allows you to build two different versions of the Deku Tree from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with unique features that are a great fit for the nature of the series. I can’t wait for everyone to get the chance to build this part of The Legend of Zelda world with their own hands.”

LEGO designer Wes Talbott added:

“Our fans have been asking for a LEGO set based on The Legend of Zelda series for a while so we were delighted to work with Nintendo to create the Great Deku Tree in brick form. As a fan of the franchise, it was great to work on this set and fill it with details and references from the games. I’m also glad we managed to offer the choice to build one of two versions to appeal to many Zelda fans. I can’t wait to see the fans reaction to this set.”
