Dear readers, do you remember the talented L-DI-EGO? They created the badass Lego Samus Gunship for Lego Ideas. While they wait for the company’s decision on actually creating the set, L-DI-EGO has been busy. Behold their latest concept: a Metroid Dread Lego set.
Metroid Dread and Lego go together like PB & J
Here is the proposal, straight from L-DI-EGO’s Twitter page:

The attention to detail is incredible. Look at how the lower right picture matches the official screenshot:
In addition to the mock-up, L-DI-EGO provided a synopsis of the game:
#OperationMetroidDreadTrapped in the depths of planet ZDR, the unstoppable bounty hunter (and “Ultimate Warrior”) Samus Aran must confront the last and final challenge on her journey: to run away from this remote place while she faces her latest foes, the E.M.M.I. (Extraplanetary Multiform Mobile Identifier) robots.Developed by the Galactic Federation, these missile-proof research robots have got out of control; and won’t hesitate to pursue Samus if they detect her – Unless they are shut down with an specific tool, the Omega Blaster. But beware; each new E.M.M.I. has a different build and a greater threat.Would Samus be able to stop the crazy robots, and escape the planet?
If the project comes to fruition, it will include a Samus figure in her Dread outfit, a Dread Morph Ball, scenery, and a customizable E.M.M.I. figurine. There are also secret reveals if the design hits a certain number of supporters.
