Fan-made terraria set achieves Lego Ideas goal
Have you ever built something so good using Lego that you thought it deserved its own official set? This is exactly what the concept of Lego Ideas is built on. Fans can build anything they can dream up using Lego, and after their submission passes 10,000 votes on the site, it’s considered an official set.
Most submissions are based on landmarks or pop culture, so TV, movie, and video game themed entries are quite common. However, there are unlikely to be too many Terraria-based entries. But that hasn’t stopped JaoGosma from whipping up a 1,970-piece set based on the popular game (thanks, PCGamesN).
“There is a two-story house and a basement, a small pond, and a small cave. Inside the cave are two small bodies of water, a few pots, ore veins, and a crystal of life,” JaoGosma said in the Positioner description. “I built it because I thought it would be a fun project, and because the recently released Sonic set inspired me to make something based on other games, and Terraria seemed like a perfect fit for a [Lego] model. I think this concept would make a great display for Terraria fans, as well as a conversation starter for people new to the game.
The set is quite impressive and should be large, as it starts from the surface and includes a tunnel dug to the lower water table. They submitted the application on January 28 of this year and reached the goal of 10,000 in just over five months. It’s worth noting that the entry received over 100 votes on the day it was submitted itself. In March, it hit 1,500 votes, which the creator celebrated by adding a bunny to the set.
Now that it has received 10,000 votes, JaoGosma’s Terraria set will be reviewed by a panel of experts, who will decide if the set is worthy of an official launch.
While this set gives us an idea of what Terraria would physically look like in 3D, a fan gave us the opportunity to play the game in 3D soon.
