13 amazing details we spotted in The Legend Of Zelda’s awesome Deku Tree LEGO set

Details of the LEGO set Zelda Deku Tree

Shalaka lala! Yes, everyone’s favorite inventory-expanding Korok, Hestu, is on the BOTW side of the set. He looks about as you’d expect, but we’re glad to see his maracas made the cut.


It wouldn’t be a BOTW-inspired build without a few Koroks, and we’ve seen three of them in various Lego forms. They seem to range in size from small to… not so small, and each has a unique matching sheet mask. We’re sure there will be a few more to come – and people will have a lot of fun recreating their Tears of the Kingdom Korok torture devices out of Lego bricks.

‘Riddles of Hyrule’

Speaking of Koroks, remember the side quest ‘Riddles of Hyrule’ in BOTW? The one where you had to repeatedly buy items for Walton, a curious Korok atop the Deku Tree? Look closely at the top of this set and you’ll see it there. He even has the answer to his “Small, red, round, sweet” riddle him (spoiler: it’s an apple).

Glowing Master Sword

We weren’t surprised to see the Master Sword appear here, but we were impressed to see that the blade is an almost translucent blue, much like its glowing appearance at various points in Breath of the Wild. The glowing power is usually a sign that you’re near a dungeon or a Guardian, neither of which appear in Lego form… but still… We’re looking forward to building the Water Temple from Lego.

Sword in the stone

Another nice Master Sword detail is that it apparently comes with its Korok Forest pedestal in the BOTW build – you can see it at about the 11 second mark. Let’s hope you don’t need 13 hearts to pull it out.

Little, little Ocarina

The Ocarina of Time minifigures come with a tiny little ocarina block. It may not be the most surprising addition, but it is very cute.

Skull tula

A Lego Skulltula hides behind the OOT Deku Tree and guards a hidden chest. The treasure chest is home to the Fairy Slingshot in adorable Lego form, but we’ll have to wait for the spidery beast to spin around before running towards it.

Sheikah Slate

Princess Zelda minifigure holds her very own Sheikah Slate. A nice accessory, yes, but it looks even neater when connected to the Deku Tree ‘terminal’.

Triforce tunic

While we’re on the subject of Princess Zelda’s minifigure, check out the details on her tunic! Modeled after her BOTW design, there’s some nice gold and white line work going on here and we’re especially impressed with the little Triforce in the center.

Deku sprout

The OOT set comes with not one, but two Deku trees. Rather. In addition to the title tree, this build also includes a cute little Deku Sprout. Does this mean the big guy in the background is already dead? We’ll try not to think about it too much…

Between the leaves of the OOT set lies a Gossip Stone. There appears to be a unique front plate stone for the front and you build up the stone body with individual stones on the back.

Cooking pot

We wouldn’t believe this was BOTW Link if he wasn’t cooking up some shrooms. Well, he is! The BOTW structure appears to have a cozy cooking station right under the Great Deku Tree.

Finally we have fairies! We’ve often wondered what a Lego Zelda fairy would look like. Well, here’s the answer. It looks like Navi (or another random Kokiri fairy) will be part of the OOT set, represented by a blue stud on a printed, translucent circular piece. It may not be the most elegant solution, but it certainly looks good. There is also a normal bottled fairy in the ‘Riddles of Hyrule’ section. Very nice.

There’s everything we’ve seen, but is there anything else? Let us know your favorite feature in the comments.
