A Super Smash Bros Ultimate fan’s stunning LEGO creation of the series’ iconic Battlefield stage has amazed gamers, but there won’t be an official release any time soon.
Although Smash is a hodgepodge of video games featuring numerous gaming mascots and locations from the medium’s history, there are some elements that are unique to Nintendo’s flagship fighter.
Aside from pioneering the percentage knockback system, Smash also has unique stages, most notably Final Destination and Battlefield’s three-platform Slugfest.
A Smash player decided to honor the latter in the form of LEGO and bring the stage to life. While earning the respect of their peers, LEGO rejected the idea.

in one Post on the Smash Bros. subredditUser ‘LampLighter_’ revealed his take on the famous stage, including the three platforms.
The set uses some transparent cylinders to hold the platforms while also implementing some greenery and the mysterious block of ice on the right.
The fans absolutely loved the set. One called it a “perfect stage for Steve to do his work,” while others asked the creator to post a list of the pieces they used.
“I would love for Nintendo to approve LEGO Smash Brothers. Battlefield with Mario, Link, Fox and Samus would be live. And then you just have minifigure packs for the other characters,” wrote another.
“It’s a shame it was rejected by LEGO Ideas. I appreciate all the details in it – the chain hanging underneath, the ramshackle nature of the platforms, and the plants growing through it,” praised another Redditor.
Unfortunately, as LampLighter_ said, it seems so LEGO rejected the set for copyright reasonsbut considering Nintendo has worked with LEGO on projects, there’s always a chance we’ll get something official in the years to come.
In the meantime, however, we can admire LampLighter_’s set and another that has recreated all the fighters in LEGO and hope that it ends up looking half as good when something official happens.
