Many readers on ZU are undoubtedly attached to the Link figma that released last year. Today that figurine went from being a great collector’s item to “pretty cool, I guess” in my mind, because Medicom Toy have crafted a Link figurine so amazing that it makes all others obsolete!
This Skyward Sword Link is the latest product in Medicom’s ‘Real Action Heroes’ line, and it stands tall at an impressive 30 cm (approximately 12″). Link’s tunic and hat are made of real cloth, and he’s just covered in intricate details. The patterned chain mail, shading in the hair, marks on the belt… impressive stuff.
Of course, it’s fully posable too – in fact, you should hit the jump see the range of possibilities in which you can pose the Hylian hero. Link also has some toys of his own, with his Master Sword, Hylian Shield, Sacred Bow and an arrow, and Beetle. Did I mention that it includes two interchangeable face plates? You can turn calm Link into beast mode and vice-versa to your heart’s content.
I can hear you opening your wallets from here, but this one is going to set you back. The figurine is priced at a whopping ¥20,790 (approximately $218/€168/£144). If you happen to be a rather rich collector, pre-orders will become available on March 24 and it will release in November.
