Now what's the big deal about the Link Between Worlds Link vs say The Other Links?
Well, here's some old School Link Art
So, first we have the Pre-Ocarina of time Links: Original Flavor, The "Adult Link" from AoL, the Link to the Past Link, which is what the Link Between Worlds resembles the most, and the Ocarina of Time younger Link.As I mentioned before, It was a Pre-Ocarina game that brought me back to Zelda, so I have a predilection towards the Pre-Ocarina Links. While This Link is a Post-Ocarina Link (The Master Sword and Hylian Shield are very post-OOT) his vibe is Old School Link.
Screw you, Spike...
It's one of my Guilty Pleasures...
This Link has a decent amount of articulation. His joints are tight for the most part. Some parts pop off here and there, which makes me question the legitimacy of this figure a little bit. He can pull off most Link Poses, but mine can't bend at the toes and I ain't forcing that.
Paint and Sculpt:
The Sculpt on this figure is great! It captures the Pre-OOT Link Look from ALTTP perfectly. If I were to paint his hair in a slightly darker Brown, I could have a Link Between LoZ and AoL.
The paint job is really great, but there's either a scratch or some silver slop on the Hylian Shield.
-4 Extra Hands (mine got two right open palm hands, which make me question the legitimacy of this figure)
-Possibly missing the 2D Link.
ALBW Link gets a 4.0 as his final score. If this figure is a Bootleg, then it's a million times better than the Snake Bootleg and an upcoming Bootleg Review. If you're an old school Legend of Zelda fan and need a cheaper Link, get this one... Personally speaking, I should have sprung up more cash for the Deluxe version.
