Fans who want some actual Animal Crossing toys in their life might want to throw some support behind a Lego Ideas project submitted by Micro_Model_Maker. The idea is to create an Animal Crossing: New Horizons set that would give people a chance to build their own upgraded Nook’s Cranny. It is up to gather support until January 1, 2022. [Thanks, Reddit!]
The Animal Crossing Lego Ideas project shown on the prototype page only showcased the store concept. It would have a fully decked out exterior and an interior that would have an axe, stereo, and pot up for sale and cash register for Timmy and Tommy to use. The creator noted that ideally, a final version of the build would include Villager, Timmy, and Tommy minifigures.
Here’s a full gallery looking at this Animal Crossing: New Horizon Lego set.
As of May 5, 2020, the project passed 2,000 supporters. The more supporters earned means the more time possible to try and earn additional support. Once 10,000 supporters are reached, Lego performs an expert review of the process and determines if it could eventually go on to be an official set.
Even if this project doesn’t come to fruition, plenty of other Animal Crossing toys and merchandise are available. Plush toys of characters like Isabelle, Tom Nook, and K.K. Slider aren’t all that have been sold. Japan’s getting an ichiban kuji product lottery. There was also that water bottle which temporarily passed $2,000 due to a pricing error.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available for the Nintendo Switch.
