Blow it up! Handmade Zelda bomb and pouch

 Coliescutecrafts has crafted a Legend of Zelda-styled bomb pouch and bombs set. The pouch and three beanie bombs (only one photographed) purportedly took her three hours to make (and required suede, thread, leather, yarn, pipe cleaner, poly-fil, and poly pellets). While not the most impressive replicas I've seen, it's still a neat tribute to an awesome franchise.

Tomopop Review: Real Action Heroes Link photo
Tomopop Review: Real Action Heroes Link
by Martin Siggers

I've got a real soft spot for Real Action Heroes Link. Not only because, like many people, I dearly love The Legend of Zelda, but because he was one of the first major pieces of news I covered after I joined the site. As such, I've eagerly awaited his arrival, which has taken more than a year thanks to pesky delays.

I wasn't the only one though, as our Reviews Editor, Rio McCarthy, has also been hyped to see Link arrive on her doorstep. So now that he's here in all his really expensive glory, we figured we would sit down and talk about everything we liked and disliked about the Hero of the Sky.

Zelda and Pokemon monopoly sets perfect for when you're 'board' and want to game

Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2014: Nendoroid Link photo
Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2014: Nendoroid Link
by Brian Szabelski

It was nearly a year ago that I first talked about how much I'd like to see a Nendoroid of Wind Waker Link, and at the past two WonFes events, we've seen the green-clad warrior in his chibi form. While February's event brought us the deco master, complete with Wind Waker, the Miyazawa Model Exhibition set-up shows us Link with sword and shield. 

I can imagine this little fellow is going to be super-popular come August (the sound of crashing websites is on the horizon) and he'll be at ¥4,000, slightly higher than some of the other Nendos I've bought in the past. But hey, at least it's not Ocarina of Time Link with a motion-activated Navi base as it's accessory, right?
