The previous “Skyward Sword” figure was amazing but a new “Link Between Worlds” version is simply outstanding

If you were a person who has adored the Legend of Zelda games over the years, you are not alone. If you are also a toy collector, you know that one action figure has stood above all others when it comes to this character. For years, Jakks Pacific’s Skyward Sword was that figure.

In my opinion, the Good Smile Company just stole the Link figure crown with their new Link Between Worlds figure which is breathtakingly beautiful and detailed with a clear love toward the original franchise.

From the popular ‘The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds’ game comes this new Link figure!

In the early details we learn that designers made an extra effort to use smooth yet versatile and posable joints allowing you to act out a variety of different scenes from the game. Boasting a confident smile expression and a more serious glaring expression, the versatility only grows as you change up this figure. The Master Sword and Hylian Shield look spot on here and the figure even comes with an articulated stand and a sheet featuring the illustration of the wall merged Link. Loaded with even more accents and items (see below), this is truly a complete treatment of the character!

Let’s run the visuals for you…

On this figure the paintwork is done partially by hand and therefore the final products may vary slightly in style and presentation. When can you expect to add this one  to your desk or shelf? The release date from Good Smile internationally is August 2016. We have no word yet on final US pricing or release schedule, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for more on this one!
