These Digital Builds Imagine THE LEGEND OF ZELDA Castle As LEGO

Over the years, the LEGO company has created sets based on all kinds of video games. But, there are a few that we want and haven’t gotten quite yet. So, Guide Strats asked themselves this question — what might some of the most awe-inspiring buildings in video games look like if they were LEGO sets? Using BrickLink Studio 2.0, they digitally rendered several video game-based architecture builds and their packaging. For an extra cherry on top, the group even calculated how many LEGO bricks each set would have. You can check out our faves down below:

Guide Strats' virtual LEGO architechture sets based on The Witcher and the Legend of Zelda.

Kaer Morhen from The Witcher III

From The Witcher III comes Kaer Morhen, a run-down fortress, reimagined as a LEGO set that comes with 2,385 pieces. Kaer Morhen stands atop the Blue Mountains of Hertch. It’s where the witchers belonging to the School of the Wolf, including Geralt of Rivia, began their training. The original inspiration for this foreboding fortress came from Orava Castle in Slovakia, also built upon a high rock and surrounded by a dense forest.

Temple of Time from The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

The Legend of Zelda has been around for nearly forty years, but the building that inspired Guide Strats is a lot more recent. The Tears of the Kingdom game from 2023 inspires their digital LEGO architecture build, with the Temple of Time. Guide Strats has reimagined this mystical building as a buildable set with 1,845 pieces. The coolest part of the Temple of Time is that it floats in mid-air. They’ve simulated the temple’s gravity-defying power by placing it atop transparent tube pieces, and then scattering clouds at the base.

Dragonsreach from Skyrim

If you’re a fan of Skyrim, the fifth installment in the Elder Scrolls series, you’ll recognize the castle known as Dragonsreach. This imposing fortress would take 2,325 pieces to put together. Their digital LEGO version of Dragonsreach uses brown blocks stacked into patterns evoking Gothic architecture. In Skyrim lore, they say that King Olaf built Dragonsreach to house the captured dragon Numinex. Sadly, there’s no dragon head included, but we still think it’s pretty imposing.

Altissia Palace from Final Fantasy XV

There’s even some Final Fantasy representation here, with ltissia Palace, the luxury palazzo fans know from Final Fantasy XV. This set would have a whopping 10,580 pieces in total. That’s more than any other build in Guide Strats’ research, and over 500 more than the LEGO Eiffel Tower set that exists in real life. That one is the tallest LEGO structure you can build (at 58.5 inches) and the second-largest of any set.
