Action Figure Review: Link in Goron Tunic from World of Nintendo by Jakks Pacific
Height: 4 3/8ths inches
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, boot swivels, hinged knees, swivel/hinge hips, swivel waist, swivel/hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, swivel hinge elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, and a swivel head.
Accessories: Master Sword, Hylian Shield, and scabbard.
Non-Scalper Price: $10-$12 dollars
* As I mentioned above this figure is absolutely a straight up repaint, and thus the only real difference between this Link and the original version is that his tunic is red. It looks good, and it makes sense as a variant, so it's not a complete waste. Again, check out my full review of the standard figure released earlier this year for all of the details.
* Goron Link includes all three accessories that the standard version included. They're still cool, sturdy accessories, although the shield is a pain to get on Link's hand. Actually, it's almost impossible. Put it on and leave it on is my recommendation.
Shadow Link uses the same mold), I really wish Jakks would have thrown something else in to make this a bit more appealing. Link's bow, a bomb, or the Megaton Hammer all would have been really cool additions to the figure.
I've reviewed a couple of Link toys on here including a Link figure offered as a preorder bonus for Ocarina of Time back in 1998, and from World of Nintendo the Skyward Sword Link, the Ocarina of Time variant of Link, the Windwaker Link, and Shadow Link.
