Eiji Aonuma, producer of The Legend of Zelda series at Nintendo, said: "The Deku Tree was the first element from The Legend of Zelda we wanted to represent using LEGO bricks.

"[There are] unique features that are a great fit for the nature of the series."

The set also has sceneries from the video games including the Master Sword pedestal from Breath of the Wild and Link’s House from Ocarina of Time.

There are also buildable characters and creatures such as Hestu the Korok, several smaller Koroks, Deku Babas, Navi the Fairy, the Deku Sprout and a Skulltula.

Wes Talbott, LEGO designer, said: "Our fans have been asking for a LEGO set based on The Legend of Zelda series for a while so we were delighted to work with Nintendo to create the Great Deku Tree in brick form.

"As a fan of the franchise, it was great to work on this set and fill it with details and references from the games. I'm also glad we managed to offer the choice to build one of two versions to appeal to many Zelda fans."
