- A Zelda fan created LEGO versions of Vah Medoh and Vah Naboris, which has some fans wanting official sets based on the Divine Beasts in the future.
- The Divine Beasts from Breath of the Wild were important elements in the game and fans are still interested in them.
- The creator of the LEGO models, jheewee, has made other Breath of the Wild concept sets, but these Divine Beast models appear to be their largest and most intricate designs yet.
A creative The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fan has created LEGO versions of Vah Medoh and Vah Naboris, and the results have some fans hoping Nintendo will make them official sets in the future. While many Zelda fans have focused on 2023’s Tears of the Kingdom since its release, fan art, such as these Breath of the Wild LEGO set concepts, is evidence the community has not forgotten about past series installments.
Despite Tears of the Kingdom building upon and incorporating many elements of the open world of Breath of the Wild, the Divine Beasts were an aspect from the 2017 game that remained absent in the sequel. These mechanical behemoths, known as Vah Ruta, Vah Rudania, Vah Naboris, and Vah Medoh, were built by the Sheikah and functioned similarly to the dungeons seen in the series. Due to the open-ended design of Hyrule in the game, players could challenge these four hulking machines in any order they liked. Recently, one fan recreated a couple of Divine Beasts in a more blocky form.
Where Are the Divine Beasts in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
The Divine Beasts were very important in Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but they seem to have vanished in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
In a post on Reddit, a user known as jheewee shared images of their LEGO set concepts for Divine Beasts Vah Medoh and Vah Naboris. These impressive models were made using Bricklink Studio and showcased the potential these Divine Beasts had for becoming physical LEGO sets if Nintendo ever showed interest. In the post, one of the pictures provided a side-by-side comparison between the LEGO models and the in-game versions of Breath of the Wild‘s Divine Beasts, showing how jheewee managed to replicate virtually every element of the original designs.
In the comments, the creator revealed there were no instructions available for building the models. However, they said they would consider making some if the demand was high enough. According to the Rebrickable pages for the LEGO models, Vah Naboris featured 134 different parts, with a total of 790 composing the build. Meanwhile, Vah Medoh contained even more unique parts at 208, with the completed creation requiring 1,253 LEGO bricks.
It is worth pointing out that jheewee is no stranger to designing potential LEGO sets. The player has already made a Bokoblin and Guardian from Breath of the Wild. Furthermore, they created a custom version of Yoshi based on the official Super Mario-themed LEGO sets. That being said, these latest Divine Beast models seem to be the largest the creator has attempted to design based on the number of pieces.
While there is no news of Nintendo releasing LEGOs based on Breath of the Wild’s Divine Beasts, new rumors suggest that Zelda fans could have the chance to buy a new set based on Ocarina of Time’s Great Deku Tree in the future. However, nothing has been confirmed by either LEGO or Nintendo, meaning fans will have to wait and see if it becomes a reality. In the meantime, it will be interesting to see if jheewee decides to create the other Divine Beasts, Vah Rudania and Vah Ruta.
