It’s LEGO Ideas Feature time and this week we have choosen an old favourite from our Childhood. He first appeared on the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) in 1986, in a game called The Legend of Zelda!
We are of course referring to Link, he has had many adventures over the decades with no signs of quiting yet, what with the recent wave of Nintendo Switch games.
He has also changed somewhat over that time too, from a blocky little 8bit character to a fully fledged Humanoid being. But he has yet to appear in LEGO form, that is up until now!
Introducing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind – Link by Brixter.
Being a gamer at heart this product idea has more than just the LEGO aspect going for it for me. I admit that my knowledge is somewhat limited to the late 80s version of Link and Zelda but I won’t let that stop me from appreciating this wonderful display piece.
Set out on an epic quest to defeat Calamity Ganon and bring peace to Hyrule with Link, the most iconic character from The Legend of Zelda.
What impresses me the most is how Brixter has incorporated a lot of different features and techniques into this build. I can see a lot of the SNOT (studs not on top) technique which works extremely well, also covering up bare studs with tiles is a really nice touch and finishes off the figurine nicely!
I particularly like the way he’s constructed the hair, it’s so life like and gives the impression the wind is blowing through it.
There are a variety of classic Link weapons and accessories at his disposal from his trusty sword and bow to his much needed shield.
The product idea quickly aquired its second milestone of 1000 supporters within just five weeks of being listed. To celebrate Brixter added the Master Sword and Hylian Shield to an already impressive collection. I wonder what treats await us when it hits 5k!?
I built the Master Sword and Hylian Shield, some of the most powerful and iconic weapons in the game.
It’s not just a display piece, although it certainly would look stunning sat on a shelf or in a display cabinet, you can also position Link in a multitude of poses as he is articulate in all of the usual joints.
Included in the product idea is a base for Link to stand proud on, it resembles a rocky hilltop with Silent Princess Flowers and other forna dotted around it. Great time and detail has been put into the plinth and it shows, of course it has to be strong enough to be moved and withstand a substantial sized brick-built Link!
Overall the product idea is stunning and Brixter has done an outstanding job. I’d love to see what else he comes up with, as there is more to this series of display figurines that could be done. Imagine a whole collection of iconic game, or even movie, characters done in this style, it’s something I’d definitely be interested in seeing and one day purchasing.
We wish Brixter the best of luck with his Idea and to one day seeing it sat in a shelf in an official LEGO Store.
