Super Smash Brothers Ultimate has its fair amount of awesome fan-made content but what I want to talk about in the blog today is one of my favourite finds in quite a while! Twitter user @yuunohu1 decided to go one step further than Nintendo themselves- who so far has only released a LEGO set for Mario- by creating mock-ups of what the entire Super Smash Brothers lineup could look like proper LEGO figures. Let’s take a look!
When I said, “let’s take a look,” what I really meant is that I want to talk about some of my personal favourites (although they are all amazing nonetheless). Pokémon Trainer is clearly a standout as you are getting four LEGO figures at once! I also love the design for the Pokémon, each with little unique quirks- like Ivysaur’s plant pieces on the back and Charizard’s teeny wings. They still look like they could be genuine LEGO figures, though, not veering into the realms of unrecognizable with their designs.
Wolf- Star Fox’s arch-nemesis- is also one of my favourites LEGO mock-ups from @yuunohu1 because of how simple yet cleverly his eyepatch is executed. To get the look of the eye patch, @yuunohu1 simply gets rid of the two small white dots on the black eyepiece and boom: eye patch. It may seem trivial, but I absolutely love little details like this. I also love wolves too so a wolf with a gun -such as Wolf- will always be my favourite.
This mock-up of what a R.O.B LEGO figure could look like is so creative! Definitely one of my faves.
A Mr. Game and Watch LEGO doesn’t sound like it would make sense, and yet @yuunohu1 manages to make it work with this mock-up.
Jigglypuff looks like she has seen things. Terrible, traumatizing things. I love it. I love her. I absolutely love her. I want to keep her forever.
Pichu and Pikachu are two of my favourite Smash characters as they are super cute, and I have a penchant for all things cute and cuddly, and so these LEGO versions of the two electric Pokémon are some of my favourites too. They are simple yet instantly recognizable, as are all of the mock-ups. I also love the little detail of some of the model mock-ups having different tail shapes, which is what differentiates male and female Pikachu’s and Pichu’s.
I could literally go on and list all of them, but I could be here all day, so I will say now that these are so fantastic, and you can head over to @yuunoh1’s Twitter to see all of them.
