While the Zelda series has toyed with mechanical concepts in recent outings, it's fair to say that fans would be somewhat resistive to the franchise moving into a sci-fi future with mobile suits and space ships.
That doesn't stop some of us from dreaming, however - and Khris Ramirez has mashed the series together with one of Japan's most famous anime, manga and toy properties: Mobile Suit Gundam.
Ramirez has skilfully taken a SD Neo Zeong model kit and fused it with a Nendoroid Link figure to create a toy so perfect you'd swear it was based on a new instalment in the Zelda series where Hyrule is populated by massive bipedal robots.
Would you like to see Link piloting a massive robot in a future Zelda game? Let us know with a comment.

I need this in my life.
Actually, I've been wanting a futuristic Zelda game that plays like Skies of Arcadia. Then, again, there's already Treasure Planet the video game, so never mind.
Ha! I like it
Winter DLC confirmed...
Zelda / Xenoblade crossover XD
Nice, but weird.
Thats pretty frigin cool
Looks like something that was planning to be in BOTW at first, but it's cool
That photo montage of Link constructing his Mobile suit is one of the most adorable things I've ever seen. lol.
I am not into Mecha stuff. Which is why I dislike some of the related content in Breath of the Wild. Yet somehow it fits, so I never discredit the game in that point.
Although this Link looks cool. I would hate to see something like this in a future Zelda game.
There was one site I used to read news like this all the time about Gundam, but the author always stole images from other news sites and wouldn't credit the original artist or photographer, when called out on it he would delete the comment, that site has been dead for months, because of a claim. It's strange seeing a custom on this site.
Oh, it is SO on...
@0upshroom7 Good thing they don't do that here.
I would like to see a scale up with a figma link and the 144 scale neo zeong, but thats still a pretty large and expensive kit to be messing around with silly Custom works
It's always cool to see people do creative stuff with action figures and such. They've always just been shelf fodder to me.
Zelda and Gundam is awesome, but a little too far. Combine Zelda with Escaflowne, and now you've really got something...
