For fans of The Legend of Zelda video game, this is The Legend of Zelda : Skyward Sword Link Figma Action Figure from Good Smile Company, the main character of the series. Using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes. A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising possibility. He comes with his standard gallant expression, as well as a powerful shouting face for combat poses. The Master Sword as well as the Hylian Shield are both included. They can also be carried on his back as they did in the game. A poseable figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
One of the most iconic videogame characters of all time, Link from the “Legend of Zelda” games, will soon be a fantastically posable Figma! Link is represented as he appears in the newest game in the series, “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword,” and he’ll come with two facial expressions, the Master Sword and Hylian Shield (which he can carry on his back if you choose).
Link (Japanese: リンク Hepburn: Rinku) refers to several different incarnations of the same fictional character and the protagonist of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda series. Link has been featured in other media from Nintendo, including its merchandising, comic books, and a cartoon series.
Link is depicted as a child, teenager, or adult of the Hylian race, originating from the fictional land of Hyrule. Link often travels through Hyrule, defeating creatures, evil forces, and the series’ primary antagonist, Ganon, while attempting to save Princess Zelda and Hyrule. To defeat him, Link usually requires the mystic Master Sword and Light Arrows, or a similar legendary weapon, obtained after many trials and battles, and magical objects or using other items such as musical instruments and weaponry.
Link has almost no spoken dialogue in the game series, except for his grunts (not including the CD-i version). Prominent facial expression has only been visible since the series appeared on the Nintendo 64. Link’s creator, Shigeru Miyamoto has said in interviews that his conceptualization of The Legend of Zelda, and of Link, was based on his childhood memories of books, movies, stories and personal experiences. He tried to make people identify with Link and have the opportunity to be heroes like the character. Although at the end of some games, Link becomes vastly talented in physical and magical arts, he usually starts off the game as a regular boy. On the origin of the name “Link”, Miyamoto had this to say: “Link’s name comes from the fact that originally, the fragments of the Triforce were supposed to be electronic chips. The game was to be set in both the past and the future and as the main character would travel between both and be the link between them, they called him Link.”
Humble but brave, these attributes consistent with Link’s role as the rightful bearer of the Triforce of Courage. He is known as the “Legendary Hero” in A Link to the Past, “Hero of Time” in Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, “Hero of the goddess” in Skyward Sword, “Hero of Winds” in The Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass and “Hero chosen by the gods” in Twilight Princess.
Link is the chosen bearer of the Master Sword, a powerful magical sword that can be used against evil. As a child, he challenges Ganondorf in order to try to protect Zelda before he inadvertently helps Ganondorf find the Triforce in Ocarina of Time, forcing Link to undo the damage he had caused.Link has several family members, including an uncle in A Link to the Past; an unseen mother in Ocarina of Time, who dies fleeing a war when Link is a baby; a grandmother, who raises him, and a sister, Aryll, in The Wind Waker; and a grandfather in The Minish Cap.His mother and father appear as spirits in the official manga.
Though most titles in the series have depicted Link as left-handed, this is not a hard, set rule and is subject to change between games. The Adventure of Link’s instruction booklet describes Link setting off “with a magical sword in his left hand and a magical shield in his right”. In A Link to the Past, he alternates hands, but this is due to sprite mirroring. The reason for this is explained in the official Nintendo Player’s guide as a Hylian superstition that requires the shield to always face Death Mountain (located to the North) to protect oneself from the evil powers originating within the mountain. Starting with Link’s Awakening, Link holds his sword in his left hand and his shield in his right, no matter what direction he is facing. In The Minish Cap, however, Link returns to alternately holding his weapon in the right or the left hand, depending on his orientation.
At the beginning of the Four Swords Plus (Four Swords Adventures) manga, Link is referred to as the “left-handed hero” after defeating pirates that were raiding a Hylian town. In addition, Link’s figurine description in The Wind Waker lists his “manual preference” as left. However, in the animated TV series and the Wii version of Twilight Princess, Link is right-handed, but the latter was done to better mirror the game’s control scheme. In the game’s official artwork he is shown holding his sword in his left hand. In the GameCube version, Link remains left-handed, as the game uses a traditional control scheme. Thus, Skyward Sword is the first game in the series to feature a definite right-handed Link, with even the concept art reflecting the fact. See details about this figure.
