* I like the sculpt on this figure. At first I felt it was a bit off but after looking at it I realized that Jakks did try to match the art of the Ocarina of Time, meaning this Link actually looks stylistically different than the Skyward Sword version. This is clearly the older Link from the game so he's decked out in the regular tunic with tights, a belt, and the harness for his sheathe.
* There are a few places with a little slop but overall Link is really nice and clean. There a good amount of detail here it nicely matches the in game character.
* Link's secret accessory is..... the Hylian Shield! I wish the shield had just come with the figure and that an Ocarina (or Navi) had been the secret bonus item. The shield's cool, though, but it is a bit of a paint to get on.
* Like the figure itself and shield, at first the sword looked a bit toyish to my eyes but again, after careful examination, I realized the colors here really match the in-game model. This is a pretty nice replica of the Master Sword as seen in Ocarina of Time. There's even a little Triforce relief on the blade.
* I like Link's sheathe. It looks pretty good (once again, the colors are pretty close to what you actually see in the game) and the Master Sword fits nicely in it. Again, I really wish this guy had come with an ocarina too, though.
* The articulation on this figure is just bizarre. Technically almost everything you could expect in a figure of this size is there but it all either feels very gangly and loose or it's rendered useless thanks to odd placements. The worst thing is that links legs are pretty much immobile at the hips thanks to his tunic. There's a clever cut in the left side of the tunic but without a cut on the right side too, what's the point?
I've reviewed two other Link figures: Link
from an older Nintendo action figure set that served as a pre-order bonus for the Ocarina of Time on Nintendo 64 and the Skyward Sword Link from World of Nintendo.
I've reviewed plenty of other World of Nintendo figures, too, including:
