Hi Figure Realm! Didn't get many comments on my last few figures (razzum-rack'em-frack'em, stupid contest no comment rules, mumble-grumble . . . ), so I thought I'd post something amazing here to really get your attention. Check it out!

So, over the summer, I made several customs, many of which you guys still haven't seen because I'm saving them for upcoming contests. The last two months? I've been working on ONE custom. Pretty much exclusively, nothing else. Why so much time put into one toy? Well, that will become clear with my next post. For now, let me must introduce my latest (and possibly greatest) work. Realm . . . meet Link, the Hero of Time.

Contrary to my usual excessive explanation, I'm going to let the pics speak for themselves this time around. Just a recipe and I'll be done.

Body: Hasbro Marvel Legends Fantastic Four wave Doctor Doom
Arms & thighs: Mattel DC Universe Classics Richard Grayson Robin
Hands: Hasbro Avengers Movie Nick Fury
Lower legs: ToyBiz Lord of the Rings Legolas
Feet: ToyBiz Marvel Legends Face-Off Mandarin
Head, hat, instrument, scabbard, detailing: Original sculpt (particularly proud of the head here, and note the little Triforce bracers with the highlighted Triforce of Courage)
Chainmail: Silver ribbon
Sword, shield: Legend of Zelda necklace
Bow, arrow: Generic dollar store figure
Quiver: ToyBiz Lord of the Rings Aragorn
Chain weapons: Doc Ock claws, TMNT weapon handles, Lego chains, original sculpt

If you're a fan of Zelda, you MUST check out my next post. You're gonna be FLOORED.

I, ah . . . I usually end with a pithy, relevant quote or tagline, but there are only four really iconic lines from the Zelda series, and none of them are even REMOTELY relevant:

"It's dangerous to go alone! Take this."
"I am Error."
"Hey! Listen!"

And of course . . . .

"Well, ex-CUUUUUUUUUUSE ME, Princess!"

Incredible! I can't imagine the time you spent making him look so perfect!
Batman1016 - Sunday, December 30, 2012
Thanks, man! And seeing as I can't get hold of a figma for a semi-reasonable price, I may just have to make another for my brother.

You think that took time? Check out all the accessories I made for him in the following figure post!

Excellent use of parts. Great combo, looks seamless together.
Batman1016 - Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Thanks! I was originally going to use the DCUC Robin in its entirety, and sculpt ALL the details, make the skirt out of craft foam, etc. But after my brother pointed out I had the Doctor Doom torso just lying around, everything else just sorta fell into place. Glad you like it!

This is just......WOW! Although I have never played a single Zelda game in my life(more of a playstation & xbox fan) & yes I do know his name is Link but this looks fantastic!
Batman1016 - Saturday, October 27, 2012
Thanks so much! Glad to hear even a non-fan can appreciate him!

Try your hand at my Inventory Guessing Game! You don't need to have played the games, all you need to do is look through the various Zelda wikis out there, and you'll find the answers in no time!

WOAH! Very cool Link! Love that last pic! You did an awesome job!
I'm impressed with how you've been able to harmoniously put all those parts together to come up with one awesome Link!
Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Thanks a mil, NeCro! You're totally gonna have a go at my guessing game, right?

I am impressed. Great job!
Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Thanks a lot! Impressed enough to try your hand at the contest??
BotCustoms - Thursday, October 25, 2012
I entered 2 contests previously. my customs don't seem to appeal to folks enough to garner the votes needed for a good placing and that means I could have used that time to make money to feed my family instead. lol

I think I'll just enjoy looking at the really well done customs in the contests but continue to do my customs outside of contests for now.
Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Oh, hey, no, not THOSE contests! My guessing game contest! Check out Link's Inventory Guessing Game! Name all the items, win a prize! No money needed! http://www.figurerealm.com/viewcustomfi ... ?FID=43816

Amazing figure and the most awesome video game series of all time
Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
No no, I haven't started work on my MegaMan customs yet.

Seriously though, thanks SO much for your praise! Make sure you try your hand at the Inventory Guessing Contest!

Looks freakin awesome man, one of your best, hands down.
Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Thanks! I figured I'd take a break from doing pop-culture characters, fantasy characters, and videogame characters, and instead make a pop-culture fantasy videogame character . . . .
Jarred706 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Makes perfect sense if you ask me.
Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
I thought it would be a refreshing change of pace!
Bad_Guy_Robot - Thursday, October 25, 2012
That Link is incredible dude! Looks like that was two months of customizing that really paid off
Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Thanks a bunch, man! Yeah, it took some time, but most of it was on the accessories. I was only planning to make a few (bow, bomb, boomerang, ocarina, a few others), and then the whole idea just ballooned out of control!
