I still haven't been able to justify buying the Skyward Sword Link, and now this (http://nintendoinquirer.com/blog/2016/01/07/new-link-figma-prototype-shown-at-nycc/):

Apparently it's up for pre-order now (http://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/5436/figma+Link+A+Link+Between+Worlds+ver+DX+Edition.ht ml). I haven't actually had a chance to play the game yet, but I've wanted a nice LttP-style Link figure for a while now, and this is... purdy.

The Skyward Sword Link is a great figure, sadly I've lost the pommel of teh sword and the grip of the shield. :(

This guy looks like a blast to play with, love the accessories.

Gotta pre-order this, & at GSC's higher bullsh*t ass price too, 'cause I definitely want all the exclusive accessories.

Omg, thank you for posting this. I completely forgot to pre-order this one. :D :D :D :D

I have a few Link figs, but this looks to be the nicest one by a longshot (kek).

Huh. Did they break off, or were they designed to come apart? (The pommel in particular coming off sounds like a weird design choice. Unless it has to be removed to get the sword in his hand...?)

The bomb and the hookshot alone...

Hey, glad I could inadvertently help. ;)

I've wanted the Skyward Sword one for ages, but I might actually like this one better. It nails the style and has a ton of charm.

The pummel is removable to fit it in his hand as you suggested.

Aha! Actually, looking closer at the pictures above, that might be the case with this guy too. Doesn't look like the pommel would fit through his hand there either.

No saying you can't have multiple Links, mane. This'll be my fourth (fifth if I say f*ck it & buy the WON OOT figure). It's cool to have a "generations" display of the dude, I think.

If Figma made OOT Link I'd flip out, that would be amazing.

Haha, it's more of a financially-motivated restriction than it is a self-imposed limit at the moment. ;)

My little "LoZ display", such as it is, is just a couple of capsule figures and the WoN Skyward Sword Link for now:

I actually noticed my LCS had this guy in stock today, and it was mighty tempting too:

...and I wasn't even aware of the OoT figure. Well, that's just good to know!

I have SS and a WW Link. I think i may pick up that new MM Link too.
Up until recent, most quality Zelda stuff was reaaally pricey. I friggen love that Figma and Revoltech are dominating this middle market with high quality and affordable figs for the kind of stuff I actually collect.

But I wouldn't be too sore over not having SS Link. He's nice, but I was a bit disapointed by the range of motion on his legs. Some of the poses they have on display for him aren't really possible due to the rubber they used on the bottom of his tunic. I guess that's nit picking, but I had some great fight scenes I wanted to set up on my display.
Figma Samus on the other hand...****.

The pommel comes off to slide the sword more easily in his hands, although some of the batches had the pommel glued shut, so you had to pry it open. Mine was stuck, and two days after I fixed it, I lost the pommel between the floor tiles in my old apartment.

And the shield handle is also removable to get it in his hand better. Same story I dropped it and never saw it again... I suck with small accessories, yet I still have all four cigarettes Figma Solid Snake came with. :lol:

God, you're right on that. I remember when this was the only thing I even knew existed, and even then I could never get my hands on them:

Could be a concern with this one too, I guess... I mean, they're still very poseable compared to most other figures, and they look gorgeous, so... maybe I should count up my dimes and nickels. :lol:

Makes sense! And they can keep his grip as tight as possible so the sword doesn't flop around in his hand. I get the thinking. More tiny pieces to go missing is a bummer, though.

Ha! We've lost a few Sonic Screwdrivers from some Doctor Who figures the same kind of way, so I know that pain.

I'd really love a whole Zelda series from Figma. Either a Link styled after each installment or sets of figures from the games. As much as I like the Nenderoids, I'd love kid Link and not chibi Link. I already have my chibi Link fill with Wind Waker.
Also, please cover more games in general. The whole Smash Bros Roster would be incredible.

We're supposed to get a Zero Suit Samus at some point (:tlove:) at the very least. More Fire Emblem figures are probably a safe bet as well. Captain Falcon & Little Mac would suit the format for sure.

There's already a nice Samus, so I hope to get a Fox, Zelda/Shiek, Peach or Captain Falcon first. I've got an unofficial Smash Bros collection started: Figma Link, Figma Samus, Figma Lucina, Nendoroid Pokemon Trainer, and I have Bowser pre-ordered. I wanna pick up the DX Mewtwo and Charizard, but they are insanely pricey.

Agh. He looks so freaking perfect but I've already spent a ton on amiibo and Figma/Figuarts Nintendo stuff. Plus I'll need the exclusive edition too.

Getting the exclusive version of this. People in Europe should be able to get the exclusive addition, as easily as the regular one, since it's only an Exclusive in Japan.
