We interrupt your regularly scheduled E3 preview overflow for 30 minutes of break time. Pick up your favorite toy and have a seat on the big round rainbow rug. We'll have some cookies and juice before you're allowed to play freely.
You won't be able to find this Link figurine in the toy chest, unfortunately. Based upon his Skyward Sword incarnation, Max Factory's figma Link won't be available until October. It's fully poseable and includes several accessories, such as the Master Sword, Hylian Shield, and swappable faces. There's also a motion effects piece that grants the sword the illusion of being swiped, although it kinda looks like blue blades of grass. The bright, solid colors capture Link's cel-shaded in-game model, but his chain mail is missing the appropriate detail. Plus, those lips freak me out.
Link will sell for ¥3800 (roughly $49), so start making your budgeting decisions now.
