Dat plastic - we simply cannot resist it. Good Smile has just revealed the latest entry to its Figma range, and it's likely to be of great interest to Nintendo fans.
Link from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is the character in question, and he's been shown off in a wide range of suitably heroic poses. The figure comes with a raft of accessories, including a Master Sword, Shield, Hook Shot, Tornado Rod, Rupee, Pot and Bomb and Maimai. There's also a "2D Link" included with the package.
Pre-orders are expected to launch tomorrow. In the meantime, feast your eyes.

Take all my unwanted rupees!
@Mezurashii Take all my wanted rupees too!
I want it!
... But I guess it will be really really expensive. :c
Wow, his eyes stare into your soul...
Looks really nice. Can't justify buying it though. These things are too expensive for my wallet.
I like how the pot looks more like a honeypot from Winnie the Pooh then a pot from ALBW. Although I suppose it's similar to the ones' in Link's house.
Any idea on price? Because this is stunning.
Wow, I've resisted all the Figmas to this point but this one does look nice. Probably not worth the price for it to sit on my desk, but.....yea.
Yeah but where is the Hilda figure?
Very nice, but probably too expensive for me to even think about.
Dem sideburns, yo.
Amazed I never noticed them until now.
Very nice. They just look so fun to pose.
As an aside, I've noticed over time that my Link amiibo is looking pretty poor compared to its neighbors. Zelda is fantastic as is Ganondorf. It's not just the yellow stand either. I wonder if we'll get a new Link amiibo for the new Zelda. Likely, right? (Wolf Link looks great with Midna, but... just not the same)
I want that.
He's every pre-ocarina link. Thank the goddess you posted this I was gearing up to shell out for the Nendoroid version.
Finaly a Link figure based on a design I like!
I know he's based on the Link Between Worlds Link, but he reminds me of the Link to the Past so much. I might have to splurge on this one.
@Azikira well, the other two Figma Links are $50. I'd say that's a safe bet.
I am throwing my money at the screen but nothing is happening!!
Wow. This figure is amazing.
@Azikira The fantastic Skyward Sword Figma is only 50 dollars so here is hoping.
Where and when can we pre-order?
Looks so amazing!
@Yorumi Same opinion. I can't wait a similar Link as a "statue". I love the third game's hero and this figure is what is the closest thing I saw.
Break the pot and get the poor Maimai out of there. His squeaking is driving me nuts.
@Spin haha that is correct; tho I like Winnie the Pooh too. And um honey. A lot.
I waaaaaaant!!!! I didn't even like ALBW, but still! WAAAANNNTT!!!!
Whoa nelly! I've never wanted a figma more than this one! This might have to be my first purchase...
...Well, looks like this'll be my first Figma.
Whoah!!! This looks insane! I want it now!!!
DX version (the one with all the accessories) is exclusive to GSC's online shop. Here's the link for pre-order:
For me, the figure was ¥6,000 flat with a ¥2,000 EMS shipping cost to California. Hated paying that more than I can say, but he's so beautiful....
While it does look good - this seems like a figure that will end up being sold on Amazon for $30-$40.
I'll wait on it for a bit. I still need to grab Skyward Sword Link!
@Mopati @Azikira @Capt_N @aj_fowl @MailOrderNinja @Oaf7724 @WoottWinds @SSJ3Goku
Not that expensive actually. The Good Smile Store exclusive DX version comes with a few extra accessories like hook shot and all that, but they're so freaking expensive and shipping is a little high too.
The normal version is sold everywhere else, but the lowest prices are typically found at Otakumode and Amiami- both of which routinely sell for less than Amazon JP. Not sure if it's live on Otakumode yet, but I ordered mine through Amiami where I always buy from- they will combine all purchases into monthly orders to save $ on shipping, which is a nice offer if you import from Japan on a regular basis.
Conversion rate puts it at $33.47 US dollars plus shipping- at time of release you'll receive several shipping options- EMS, Air Mail and SAL for sure. EMS is the most expensive but it's not much more, and you'll get your package like 3-5 days later, as opposed to Air Mail which takes 2 weeks and SAL which can take up to a month.
Amiami has very reasonable shopping charges too- for one Figma I think it's like $9 US? But I'd combine with other orders released in same month to minimize shipping.
Thanks for links to pre-order!
Via GoodSmile, with shipping to NY for the DX version for me came to $67.72. Not that bad considering I paid about $80 for the Lucina figure via Amazon.
OMG SQEEEEEE! As a huge LttP and LBW fan I MUST OWN THIS!
EDIT: And preordered. Couldn't get the limited edition one but so long as I have one of these I'm good.
I saw it last night, bought it. Then I scrolled down the screen and saw the DX edition, and bought that too...
I am happy.
Look on Tokyo Otaku Mode, that where I bought mine and they still have them.
Yeah well Tokyo Otaku Mode has both versions free shipping! Check it:
And yes, they are very reliable. I do all of my figure/import shopping from them and they have never let me down.
So awesome! Just wish I had the space for this, along with the Figma Skyward Sword Link (and many other figures)
Also, it's only now that I'm realising how much this Link looks like the one used in the "Oracle" games artwork.
There's a Majoras Mask one coming too !!! It's amazing!!!!
I really want this, but probably really expensive. lol
@J-Manix98 Thanks! Might get it from here and give the other preorder to a friend.
Yep, no problem This site a really great, cause you get in-store credit back from every purchase. They often have deals at the end of the month where you can get 10x the amount of credit for your purchases to, which is nice. Also, most if not all of their pre-orders (I know at least for figmas and Nendoroids) have free shipping, which is amazing!
I do all of my figure shopping here, haha!
I'd rather have a Linkle on display on my shelves... I don't think I own a single male character figure in my collection, but seeing as I am a MLP fan and over half my figures are MLP related, uh, yeah that's my excuse.
