This custom Link action figure does the Triforce proud

I believe that today is going to be a good day. Actually, I know this to be a fact. Why is that? Because someone took upon themselves the task of creating an action figure of Link that looks as good as we'd all like. And custom figure maker BDCdiesel, the man brave enough for this task, succeeded with gusto. I feel like dancing a merry jig after seeing his custom Link action figure, complete with Hyrulian shield and Master Sword. And spiffy hat of course. Yes, today is a good day.

Link's creation is pretty damned impressive as this is a piece with a lot of aspects crafted from scratch. The head comes from a Cloud figure, though the hat and hair are entirely from the ground up. The arms are pieced together from a Chris Redfield figure, a Lord of the Rings Frodo of all places, and some random sculpting. The feet come from both Daredevil and Claire Redfield, and probably the best description, the lower half of his body comes from "Lotr chick." No seriously, that's how it's described and that's awesome. Finish this up with a re-purposed Taskmaster shield and a Master Sword that was clearly forged to be the Blade of Evil's Bane and you have one hell of a custom.

At 5.5" tall, there is one simple error. Ahem, we all know the error I'm talking about: BDCdiesel, would you care to explain to me why this isn't in my hands right now? No, I don't want excuses like "But I made it and should get to keep it!" Oh you selfish, unpleasant man, what with your hoarding of very cool custom figures. Unless I look outside and see a postman hurriedly puffing up to me carrying a package with this inside, I say good day! I suggest you all do the same!
