Kingdom Hearts III is finally out and, while many people are playing the game, others are creating things around it.
BrickinNick falls into the latter category as he has made this full size version of the Kingdom Key out of LEGO.
According to the overview video – embedded below – the build took around 12 hours to complete with the full process being shown over three streams on Twitch.
While you’d expect something this long and thing to be fragile, there’s a very clever internal structure to keep everything rigid, using three layers of plates over this for extra strength.
The exact size of the build isn’t mentioned but the beauty of LEGO means that it could easily be made shorter or longer to be more accurate.
While LEGO isn’t in the habit of creating 1:1 scale props, we hope this is put onto Ideas at some point. The LEGO Ideas platform allows anyone to submit a build that they’ve created and, if it gets ten thousand votes from the community, it will be considered to be turned into an official set. Voltron, Apollo Saturn V and many others have been given this treatment.
If LEGO isn’t your thing we’ve featured Keyblades made of other materials in the past. This miniature one is 3D printed, and the LEGO version you see here has also been recreated using laser cut wood.
