One of the highlights of this job is stumbling across, and then being able to share, the tremendous talents of Nintendo fans around the world. We've seen homemade Zelda LEGO sets, a 65-inch TV transformed into a Switch console, and plenty more besides in recent years, and now we've got another great pick to add to the list.
Reddit user tomvdcr has shared the following image online, giving us a look at the Zelda: Breath of the Wild-inspired weapons they've been creating over the past two years. They say that most of what you see before you is "made from EVA foam and PVC pipes", but the attention to detail beyond that is stunning. We love the Guardian Sword and Guardian Shield in particular.
We've often thought about buying a life-sized Master Sword to display in the front room - you know, as a way to show off our love for Zelda, not for actually going around and murdering Bokoblins - but perhaps making your own is the way to go?
Either way, we're loving the dedication behind this project. Hats off to you, tomvdcr.

“It’s not an obsession, it’s a passion.” - My dad on any type of massive collecting. In his case, Guns. 😂
Take my money!
Those are some really well made replicas. He got it right down to the combat durability.
I instantly thought that glowing sword was light-up disney princess sword in this arsenal
I'm surprised they made the garudo shield, but not a royal shiled, or knight's shield. But aesthetically, I get it. The green & yellow shield does look nice.
And I bet they break just as easily in real life as they do in the game.
@ZeldaFanboy78 Funny thing is, as long as you get perfect perry timing right, I think botw physics would allow foam shields to deflect guardian lasers
@ryancraddock another article with the most delightfully pathetic recreated botw weapons would be amusing. If you can find such an arsenal. Also, this definitely an impressive set in this article.
crazy botw fan is what l see
I thought of doing something like this when I was younger. Then I forgot what we were talking about and watched the Simpsons (golden age) instead. Good times. 🤪🤪
All these weapons and Indiana Jones still shoots you.
dude must have a lot of free time and money to make all this
Im poor af but Im willing to part with a couple thou for these babies!
@Dm9982 I've heard tales of .22s and .30-06s eloping when no one was looking and then, nine months later, a new AR-15 magically appears in the gun safe.
@Dm9982 I think most gamers can relate to that.
@jodudeit yeah I had a 10/22 and 77/22 Mag breed and make a shiny new 77/22 Hornet. 😂
@JayJ I know I can! Game collection has been growing exponentially since the 80s
MAN AT ARMS is better at this kinda thing tbh
do they shatter and break after one use like in the game? for complete accuracy I think this should be included. 👌😂
That gerudo shield is the best of the bunch it looks fantastic
That's pretty cool stuff.
@Shadowmoon522 maybe for functionality. These weapons above look like they came right out of the Switch (or Wii U) though. Both versions are awesome.
@Mr_Persona Don't you hate it when someone loves a game and decides to use their talents to make something for people on the intcrazyernet to see? Yeah, he must be a crazy person, making models. /S
@HarryHyruleHero he must have spent a lot of money making the weapons
@Mr_Persona Maybe, but if he's got the money, he can do what he wants
