LEGO Legend of Zelda toys could become a reality after all.

LEGO rejected the fan-designed sets late last year, in favour of a LEGO Back to the Future toy.

But now a different Zelda set has been uploaded to Lego Cuusoo, a website that allows people to suggest ideas to LEGO which it reviews and turns into real sets - like LEGO Minecraft.

And this latest LEGO Zelda pitch has received 10,000 supporters, which means it will be considered for approval by LEGO next month.

Talking about the rejected Legend of Zelda idea, LEGO previously said: "Multiple new element molds would be required to create the minifigures for such a product, and the expense of these molds means that the Legend of Zelda project unfortunately does not pass the LEGO Review on the basis of the business case."

However, the latest Zelda play-set features different minifigures and its own separate design.

LEGO conducts these reviews every three months.

The Legend of Zelda franchise is owned by Nintendo, so LEGO will also need to strike an agreement with the firm, should it approve this latest Zelda LEGO set.
