OK, I don't think anybody saw this one coming. Medicom have just unveiled the latest in their Real Action Heroes series, and it's The Legend of Zelda's Link! While the Nintendo legend got a figma last year, few were anticipating him making the jump to the larger scaled line.
Standing approximately 30 cm tall, Link is portrayed as he appeared in the latest game The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Like all RAH figures, he features real cloth clothing, in this case an absolutely fantastic rendition of his iconic green tunic, with undershirt and chainmail layers perfectly recreating his in-game look. There's no skimping on accessories either as alongside the obligatory Master Sword and Hylian Shield he also comes packed in with his beautiful bow and arrow and the game's unique gripping beetle item. There's also a swappable angry face for those dynamic action scenes.
It all adds up to one seriously tempting package. RAH Link is aiming for a November release and goes on pre-order this Sunday, March 24, at the hefty price of ¥20,790. That's not a small amount of money and yet I have to imagine there's plenty of readers who won't be able to click that button fast enough.
