Nendoroid #413: The Legend of Zelda: Link the Wind Waker Version
Released: November 2014
Nintendo characters have always been popular, but in terms of merchandise, there hasn't been much out there. Recently though, Nintendo has decided to license their characters to third party vendors and release more products based on their characters. This Nendoroid is one example of this initiative and here's hoping more will come.
Link from the The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is a perfect fit for the Nendoroid line since he already is in a chibi like form. With the great sculpting and paint apps, I'm happy to say that this figure is a great rendition of the character and its as almost as if he popped out of the game and onto my desk.
If you have other Nendoroids then you know that they are easy to handle and were meant to be handled without worry of parts breaking. Most of Link's parts can be disassembled and are very easy to put back together. Link's shield is a great example of this because of its ball joint, which means you can position the shield in many angles.
Accessories wise he comes with four different facial expressions, sword, shield, base, heart container with stand, an assortment of hands, two bent arms, two bent legs, one hand holding his wand, and his sword slash effect add on.
All of his facial expressions are great and add a lot of personality. His sword slash effect is also a nice feature and looks great in any position. The sword fits easily into one end of the slash, and it even comes with a stand the help balance it next to Link.
One of my favorite additions is the heart container. This looks great and this too comes with a stand to help create those moments when Link holds it above his head.
