Link (Twlight Princess) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:32618  
Name:Link (Twlight Princess)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Legend of Zelda
Creator:BDCdiesel  
Date Added:September 9, 2011
Base Figure:Various (see description)
Height:5.50 inches
This fella is the first of many Zelda customs I have in the works, and this particular figure has been sitting there waiting to be completed for about a year now. I had been putting off gluing on his tiny little stitches on his costume, there were lots of them. I got kind of lazy on his sword sheath thingy, which I will eventually make game accurate, as well as a couple little details on the master sword. Let me know what you guys think.

Edit: The shield was a ML taskmaster shield cut to shape with sculpted details added.

Head: Play Arts Cloud w/scratch built hair and hat
Torso: Random sculpted/dremeled
Arms: Upper are Palisades Chris Redfield, middle are LOTR Frodo, lower are random sculpted forearms
Hands: MGS Raiden
Lower: Lotr chick
Feet: HML Daredevil w/Palisades Claire redfield feet
Chainmail: Craftstore mesh ribbon
Accessories: Sword and Shield were sculpted and scratchbuilt from random accessories and bits, sculpted pouches.

UPDATE 3/22/2012: Modified Link's head so he can have different faceplates like Anime toys do. This is the first I made, which is a slightly happier Link, since I got a few complaints about Link looking Suicidal. I also brightened up his green tunic a little. Expect more faceplates in the days to come.

First Picture, the Link on the right is the new Link face, trashed the old one.

this is one of my favorites on the realm now, just for sheer awesomeness and one of my favorite characters. you are spot on all details, but love the idea that batman1016 had on the tidus head. I miss your work also, metroid is another great series. keep up this level of awesomeness and really look forward to your new works. 10 out of 10, spot on.

Sweet link man. I wish I had him

Spec-Freakin'-Tacular! I declare this the best adult Link on the Realm! I one day intended to do a Zelda series once I complete my Metroid figures. I can only hope to succeed you, but doubt I shall ever surpass.

Heya Diesel! Ugh . . . yeah, I've been horribly busy over the last year. Moved to a new place and workin' three jobs (and still have no money, natch), I've had almost NO time lately. Haven't worked on any customs in months. BUT, I've got some work I did over the winter that I hope to post soon, and I really have big plans for the Group Dynamics contest, so here's hoping this signals a triumphant return to the Realm!

As for Link, I think he's almost perfect. I wouldn't do a smaller head at all . . . if anything, that's one of the biggest mistakes most other Links make, their bodies are too muscled and their heads are too small. Your proportions are dead-on, and the colors look perfect too ('less that's the camera, but I think it's fine). If you are really set on a different head, I'd go with Play Arts Tidus . . . he's got Link's cocky smirk, and the eyes look a little more accurate. Other than that, it's A+ all the way. You ebaying him?

Awesome!

If only you had used a different head...that Cloud head seems a bit chubby to me. But everything else is spectacular, you should definitely be proud.

that...........is..........AMAZING!

Fan-freakin-tastic. A beautiful Link custom far above the par. I look forward to some of the other Zelda-insired stuff.
