World of Nintendo - ZELDA!

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Zelda w/ Sheikah Slate - Jakks Pacific 2023

I haven't played a video game on a console in more than 20 years at this point. But seeing my friends play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild almost tempted me to fall off the wagon and start playing again. The game looked beautiful and really seemed to transport you into a different world. That is the major appeal of (certain) comics and movies for me; the ability to submerge me in a complex, well-thought-out world. Almost as if the environment of the story is its own character. And Breath of the wild really seemed to fit the bill. With the release last week of Tears of the Kingdom and all my friends and coworkers abuzz talking about it, I thought it was a good time to post on this recent Zelda figure from Jakks. While there is no "World of Nintendo" branding on the packaging, this Walmart wave seems to be a relaunch of the concept with Zelda and Metroid characters offered in the first assortment. Super curious to see which games and characters will be next. Let's check out Zelda below!

Zelda's only accessory is the Sheikah Slate.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Zelda with Link from the same series.

And here is Zelda with the 2016 Zelda from the Ocarina of Time.

And here are Link and Zelda with the third figure in the wave, Samus from Metroid.

Here is a pic of Link with the 2016 Link, also from Jakks Pacific (on the Left). This new one is quite an upgrade.

And here are all my Jakks Links together (excluding color variants).
