Using our fan-made Lego, we can get one step closer to the opening of our Nook's Cranny. In May, Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Lego version of Nook's Cranny made some waves on the internet geek. Introduced in Lego Ideas, the store, created by a creator called Micor_Model_Maker, is a program where Lego builders and enthusiasts can share their creations with the community with the opportunity for the company to officially record their design.
If an entry for Lego Ideas receives 10,000 votes before the community deadline, it will be eligible for mass production under the Lego label. In addition to making their design available to the world, the creators would also receive 1% of sales through royalties.
Nook's Cranny model is highly detailed, with surrounding landscapes, an apple tree, a hot item sign and an after hours sales box. Micro_Model_Maker also took it a step further with an interior design that is a great showcase for Timmy and Tommy's workplace, although they are no match. A village boy is included in the set, but the creator is keen to include the Nook boys in this nearly 1,000-piece design - if they had the chance and the tools to do so.
Micro_Model_Maker was one of 35 designs selected for the next round to consider for purchase. The competition seems pretty tough as Nook's Cranny faces the home of Pixar's Up, Study Room from Community, Appa Team Avatar, Zuko and Uncle Iroh from Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Rosebud Motel from Schitt's Creek (supplemented by the Rose Family) , And the home of the Sanderson Sisters of Hocus Pocus.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is an absolute sensation, and people have been picking up all of the franchise's goods for months. Since the building is such a big part of Animal Crossing in the first place, this Lego set that comes to life is arguably huge for fans of the game with Animal Crossing Bells. However this tour of Lego Ideas begins, Micro_Model_Maker currently has a design for Able Sister's - so there's still hope to create something different from New Horizon's booming economy.
