Medicom Reveals New Collectible Link Figure From ‘Breath of the Wild’ – But It’ll Cost You
With the massive popularity of The Legend of Zelda series and the enormous success Breath of the Wild has enjoyed since the game launched on March 3rd, it was only a matter of time before collectible figures began to spring up to celebrate the characters from the series’ latest entry. Enter Medicom Toy, a Japanese collectible toys company that has been cranking out high quality items since 1996. Their newest entry is a stunning collectible Link figure based on his look from Breath of the Wild and it has a going price of $335. Medicom is currently taking pre-orders through the BigBadToyStore website with an estimated time of arrival for December 2017.

Part of the company’s ‘Real Action Heroes’ lineup, the figure stands at 11.8 inches (30 cm) tall and comes fully poseable. It wears a fabric outfit “faithfully recreated” from the game. He also comes equipped with his sword, shield, bow, arrows, quiver and “other accessories” like an equippable hood. The collectible Link figure also comes with interchangeable hands and two facial expressions, which helps justify (even if a little) the hefty price tag. The model weighs in at 3.5 pounds and comes with a stand, so he can be placed in any number of different poses on a desk or shelf.
It should be noted that while many will balk at the $335 price tag, the detailing on the collectible Link figure is absolutely beautiful. The shield and the other accessories that come with the figure are all equally detailed as well. This may not be for everyone, but hardcore collectors and fans of The Legend of Zelda should definitely look into picking this one up to add to their collections.
