The lights are on
Lego Cuusoo is a website that challenges brick builders to create sets that could potentially be turned into official Lego products. This process consists of three steps:
Video game-inspired sets fare quite well with the Lego community. Last year, a fan-made Minecraft set passed approvals and was put into production. This year, sets based on The Legend of Zelda and Eve Online both made it to the review process.
Neither set was selected for production. They both lost out to the time-traveling DeLorean from the Back to the Future films. This is a tough loss for Link and Zelda fans, but I gotta say, that Back to the Future set looks awesome. I wouldn't mind adding it to my collection.

A sad loss, but nostalgia hit home with Mcfly more for dem Lego boys than Zelda. Woulda preferred the latter but the former is pretty cool too.
I supported the Zelda Lego sets myself on the site and am massively disappointed. Curse Lego's cheapness. I suppose that the Delorean looks nice, but man, the Ocarina's the way to time travel!
portal 2 would be nice.
:) I love Legos.
they said that the amount of new minifigs they would have to make would be too expensive for it to make sense. They should have picked Zelda but that set pictured is really not that interesting
Yeah, a Zelda set would be awesome, but as a child of the 1980s I can't be mad that it was BTTF that beat it out.
I love the Lego company. They seem to truly care about their customers and seem to solely be about improving all the Legos out there to make everyone happy.
Too bad lego products are so darn expensive! unless of course you make royalties from them.
*Looks at the Lego Zelda masterpiece... Goes out to buy Legos*

I'm sorry Back to the Future, but Zelda deserved to win!
Aw, I was rooting for The Legend of Zelda project :( I like BttF, but I would much rather see a TLoZ set.
Make all the sets!!!
What a nice move to donate the 1 % to parkinsons research. Kudos to the designers!
