Ok, so the last new “Metroid” game anyone played was “Other M” from 2010, and the last “Metroid” game anyone liked was “Prime 3: Corruption,” but the series still has cultural cachet, right? Right!
Enter a Lego Cuusoo user by the name of Zurtech: he or she used Lego’s digital design software to create a “Metroid”-based set, complete with Samus (Zero Suit and Varia Suit versions, natch), her iconic ship, Mother Brain, and metroid incubation tanks. There are roughly one billion Lego sets that include dragons, so I don’t fault Zurtech for skipping out on designing a Ridley.
