LEGO® Metroid: Parasite Queen Battle

Okay, last one, I swear.

 

This Saturday, August 6th will be the 30th anniversary of the beloved Nintendo franchise Metroid (first released in Japan for the NES August 6th, 1986). Over the past two years I have been doing a number of builds dedicated to the game (which I will link below) because it is a series very dear to my heart that brought about a lot of childhood awesomeness.

 

Last year around this time, I had my Metroid Prime Artifact Temple Showdown blogged on IGN, which was unbelievably cool, but as I scrolled through the comments section, I noticed one that speculated how cool it would be if I were to build the Parasite Queen from the intro stages of the same game. Well, that was it, I decided I would do at least one more Metroid Prime build before the anniversary. Suffice to say, I got rather over-ambitious in this build and wasn't able to really finish it like I had planned, but nonetheless, I hope everyone enjoys it all the same (at least the parasite queen looks awesome, I hope).

 

The Parasite Queen is the first boss you encounter in the game, and is probably next to Ridley and the Metroid Prime the most likely to give you bed-wetting nightmares. Anyway, here are reference images 1 and 2.

 

As the Metroid fans will probably realize, this build is closely related to LEGO® Metroid Prime: Escape from the Orpheon Frigate!

 

The rest of the Metroid builds are located in this album. Enjoy.

 

... and of course, happy anniversary to Metroid. While I may be too busy to play because I'm running outdoors and catching pokemon at the moment, I will always love this franchise, despite its decline from the front lines of popularity these recent years.

.... and of course, come see it at Brickfair 2016.
