I've been complaining for a while now that the neat figurines offered by First 4 Figures and licensed by Nintendo have been (with the exception of Samus Aran) of the "also-ran" characters of the Nintendo universe, such as Skull Kid and Trace. Maybe someone out there is listening to me because this morning the company announced an Adult Link figurine from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Finally, a real honest to goodness beloved character!
No one can question the courage of the Hero of Time, the true bearer of the Triforce and Master Sword. At the beginning of the Ocarina of Time, Link unsuccessfully tried to save the Great Deku Tree from the evil curse placed by Ganondorf. However, with the help of his fairy companion Navi and a host of other friendly faces, he sets out on an adventure across time to banish the evil forces of Ganondorf from Hyrule.
First 4 Figures is hugely proud to present the one that the fans have all been waiting for, Adult Link from the Ocarina of Time game! His pose shows him winding up for his signature spin attack. The Hero of Time is the third collectible statue in First 4 Figures™ Legend of Zelda collectible statue series. He measures approximately 7 inches tall, including the base. If standing tall, he would measure 8.5 inches tall, accurately keeping in scale with current and future statues in the series.
Cast in high quality poly-stone, the statue is hand finished and hand painted. Not only has Adult Link been faithfully recreated, but so has the Master Sword and Hylian Shield. Stands upon a diorama base and includes a dungeon map and dungeon key for added realism. Comes packed in a foam interior full colored box with a card of authenticity. Highly limited at only 2,500 pieces available worldwide.
Link's a little more expensive than the other characters presented this far ($109), but I think I may have to bite on this one. At long last I'll have a classy piece of Nintendo memorabilia suitable for display that has nostalgic happiness attached to it. You'll find the large photos of the figurine below. Just don't order it before I do!
