Good Smile Company is a producer of some of the cutest and / or most handsome Nintendo-themed figures around, depending on the game and range it's shooting for. The latest offering it's putting up for pre-order is a Link based on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
The figure's face is based more on the title's promotional / concept art than the way our hero appeared in the game, which makes him suitably moody and strong. The PVC figure is 20cm in height, and you can see some pictures below.
Pre-orders are open now and will run until 27th July, with shipping due in November. It costs a hefty 15,800 Yen, though, which is a little over $140 at the current exchange rate, and that's before shipping comes into the equation.
Alas, most of us will simply gaze at it with admiration - the video below will rub it in further.

I can't help but think that Link should be holding the Goddess shield as it seems more iconic for a Skyward Sword figure.
OMG! you're right! He's soooo handsome. Link is such a hottie!
He's on the same base as the MHS amiibo.
I guess the fact that that's the first thing I noticed means I'm not too much of a Zelda fan, huh? Well that, and despite the figure looking great, I'd have never thunk - "Skyward Sword", it's just Link to me. Very cool Link, but not game specific Link.
Wow, looks awesome! But $140...
@Utena-mobile He's mine! XD
No SS Zelda no purchase. Is it really that hard?
He looks better like this than in skyward sword
No way! That good? I never seen a figure so well made.
I'm buying this soon as preorders open on Amiami.
I got the Fire Emblem Awakening Cordelia 1/7 scale statue from them for $100 when it was like $130 every where else.
That is one well made figurine!
Still waiting for the Twilight Princess Figma.
"Skyward Sword is my favorite Zelda game." said almost no one, except ME!
The figurine is beautiful, but why are bagpipes used for the Legend of Zelda ???
Not true. I don't know if I would call it my favourite, but I really really like it.
Link looks absolutely beautiful. <3 I'm not really into collecting figures, only some amiibo here and there, but this one is gorgeous.
Is the Cordelia figure from Good Smile as well?
Link's face doesn't have a good smile.
Amazing looking Link statue.
ooohh over $140 is still about £100, Why do you have to be so mean people?
Yes, you can see it here where I preordered mine (finally releases next month, been waiting almost a year)
Cool - but too pricey for me. :/
This is how the Link Amiibo should've looked like.
Although, considering the price tag, I don't think it'll become a success. Who would spend so much money on a figurine that just stands around and does nothing? Only rich people, I guess...
I bet a lot of people are gonna play rock, donut, Thursday over this figure. (please tell me a COUPLE of you understood that reference)
That's the nicest Link figure ever! I need this!
It isn't meant to be...
@rjejr It definitely looks like Skyward Link, though. They even matched his pose in official artwork with these pictures.
Thanks. Wow, she looks amazing, too.
If you don't mind, would you put up your thoughts on the figure once you get it?
Looks very cool!
Wow, Good Smile never ceases to amaze... but unlike the Nenderoid figures, this is a bit out of my price range.
@Crimzonlogic Well, if they would have painted it in that standard definition impressionistic painting style, then I would have thought "Skyward Sword", but from an artistic standpoint they don't really look anything alike. And Skyward Sword was all about it's graphical style. If anything I'd say this model looks artistically like TP, it's kind of dark. SS is much brighter. If they were music I've always thought of TP as hard rock, SS as a child's lullaby.
Ah, I imagine the price for this would appreciate given time. You won't find a re-sale of this lower than its intended original price given that Good Smile does figurines like this made specifically to pre-order.
It's a good thing that there are stores here that do payment plans, I'll get mine at the beginning of 2017 and my payment would finish by september or october. and already saved my spot at a pre-order. You guys should definitely look for stores that have different payment plans
