13 cool details we spotted in The Legend Of Zelda’s Great Deku Tree LEGO set

Shalaka lala! Yes, everyone’s favorite and stock expansion favorite Korok, Hestu, features on the BOTW side of the set. He looks exactly like you’d expect, but we’re glad to see that his maracas have been a hit.


It wouldn’t be a BOTW inspired build without some Koroks and we’ve spotted three of them in different Lego forms. They appear to range in size from small to not-so-small and each has a unique leaf mask to match. We’re sure there will be more – and that people will have fun recreating their own Tears of the Kingdom Korok torture devices out of Lego bricks.

“Hyrule Mysteries”

Speaking of Koroks, remember the “Riddles of Hyrule” side quest in BOTW? The one that required you to repeatedly obtain items for Walton, the curious Korok atop the Deku Tree? Look closely at the top of this set and you’ll spot it there. He even has the answer to his own “Small, red, round, sweet.” The puzzle is with him (spoiler: it’s an apple).

Glowing Sword Master

We weren’t surprised to see the Master Sword appear here, but we were impressed to see that the blade is a semi-transparent blue, much like its glowing appearance at various points in Breath of the Wild. A glowing power-up is usually a sign that you’re near a dungeon or a guard, neither of which appear in Lego form… However… we’re looking to build a Lego Water Temple.

Sword in stone

Another fun detail of the Master Sword is that it apparently comes with its own Korok Forest base in the BOTW design – you can see it in about 11 seconds. Let’s just hope you don’t need 13 hearts to pull it off.

Very small, small ocarina

The Ocarina of Time minifigures are accompanied by a mini ocarina brick. It may not be the most surprising addition, but it’s very nice.

Lego Skulltula is hiding around the back of the OOT Deku Tree, guarding a hidden chest. The treasure chest is the home of Fairy Slingshot in adorable Lego form, but we’ll have to wait for the spider-like monster to spin around before we get down to it.

Sheikha Slate

The Princess Zelda minifigure carries her own Sheikah plaque. Nice accessory, yes, but it looks even sleeker when connected to the Deku Tree ‘station’.

Triforce tonk

While we’re talking about Princess Zelda’s Minifig, check out the details on her jacket! Modeled after their BOTW design, there’s some neat gold and white stripe work going on here, and we’re particularly impressed with the little Triforce in the middle.

Deco Sprout

The OOT kit does come with one, however two Deco trees. somewhat. Aside from the titular tree, this build also includes the cute little Deku Sprout. Does this mean that the big guy in the background is already dead? We’ll try not to think too much about it.

Gossip Stone

Among the foliage of the OOT collection is the Gossip Stone. There appears to be a unique brick pattern in the front and you will build the body of the stone using the individual bricks in the back.

Cooking pot

We wouldn’t have believed this was BOTW Link if he wasn’t cooking up some “rooms”. Well, it is! The BOTW building appears to have a cozy cooking station right under the Great Deku Tree.

LEGO Zelda Deco Tree - Navy

Finally, we have the fairies! We’ve often wondered what the Lego Zelda fairy would look like. Well, here is the answer. It looks like Navi (or another random Kokiri fairy) will form part of the OOT set, represented by a blue spike on a transparent printed circular piece. This may not be the most elegant solution, but it sure looks good. There is also a regular fairy ready to be bottled in the “Riddles of Hyrule” section. Very pleasant.

There is everything we spotted, but there is nothing else for us? Let us know your favorite feature in the comments.
