When people think of Lucasfilm properties, the two that spring to mind are almost always Star Wars and Indiana Jones. But there was a third major Lucasfilm property back in the ‘80s, the high fantasy film Willow, in 1988. And it’s making a big comeback, as a new Disney+ series continuing the story of Willow Ufgood arrives this fall.
Now, In honor of this Willow resurgence in pop culture, one superfan has submitted their concept for a new LEGO Ideas pitch, and it’s Willow’s Battle of Tir Asleen. The creator, who goes by the handle of MontyMatte, describes the proposed set like this;
I am delighted to share with you my submission to LEGO Ideas. You are invited to join a world of *Nelwyn*, *Dakini*, sorcerers, a two-headed monster and more. The model shows a detailed interpretation of the battle scene at castle Tir Asleen (close of the motion picture from 1988) with about 2,900 bricks used.
The Willow LEGO set would include the following Minifigures and animals. There’s Willow with Elora Danan as a baby, plus the warriors Madmartigan and Sorsha. Also, Fin Raziel as a goat and raven, and General Kael with three Nockmar warriors. There’s a troll and a skeleton, and the two-headed monster called the Eberish. Plus a rat, some spiders, and a horse. It features a castle wall with main gate, a left tower with armory and prison, and a right tower with weapons. And lastly, there’s a tree with a pretty ax.
Oftentimes, due to a variety of other reasons, even the best LEGO Ideas pitches don’t go to production. But with Willow making a comeback to the pop culture landscape this fall, we think it has a good shot. Lucasfilm and LEGO would just have to cut a deal.
