Hey! Listen!

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Realmers of all ages, genders, and nations, welcome one an all to my very own contest, the "Link's Custom Inventory Guessing Game!"

You've probably seen my recent "Legend of Zelda" Link custom action figure. Well, pictured here are a whopping 35 accessories that I created for the toy. THIRTY-FIVE ITEMS!! Can you IMAGINE the time I put into building 35 weapons, tools, and other assorted trinkets and treasures for my little Hylian Hero? So much time and effort and love went into the project that I wanted to make a separate post exclusively for the inventory. And even better, I decided to make a little contest about it! Thus, Link's Inventory Guessing Game was born! This contest ran from October 25, 2012 to November 1, 2012.

The rules were pretty simple; pictured below are 35 items that appear in the Legend of Zelda series. With a single, VERY obscure exception, EVERY GAME is represented . . . at least one item from almost every Zelda game EVERY PRODUCED is included in this inventory (no, remakes and Tingle spinoffs don't count). The participants' job was to tell me just what each item is, and what game it came from. 35 items, and 35 games, for a total of 70 points. Sadly, there weren't a lot of entries, only five people submitted a list (guess there aren't as many Zelda fans around here as I thought . . . or this contest was WAY harder than I thought), but I want to thank everyone who played, and congratulate the winner . . . Bad_Guy_Robot, who scored a staggering 69 out of 70!! He will be receiving a full-size, functional, ceramic ocarina, customized by myself to look like the legendary Ocarina of Time!

Told you guys there was an awesome prize for this contest. Now don't you wish you'd entered?

And just what are the correct answers?

Well, I'm not going to post them just yet. Because some people may still want to take a guess. Feel free to post your own answers, and if you get them all right, maybe I'll send you your own little consolation prize!

Again, thanks to everyone who played, and thanks to Figure Realm for allowing me to run this little game!

Sooo cool, and so much work! Really really cool and must have taken forever. Great design!

I love these, I entered the contest, and I love them! I have a Figma Link coming in, and would love for him to have some of these! You sir, are a Zelda genius!
Batman1016 - Sunday, December 30, 2012
Oh yeah, you did enter, didn't ya? Heh, been a little while, and I've been working so much (two jobs now, why I haven't been posting much) that I totally forgot!
sonicustoms - Thursday, November 15, 2012
I think I might use this idea as inspirtation for something along these lines! Me being a sonic-oriented customizer I should do something like this with level up items from sonic games or something!
Batman1016 - Friday, November 16, 2012
Definitely! I've always said, accessories make good figures great! Never skimp on the extras!
sonicustoms - Friday, October 26, 2012
On the subject of zelda I think zelda fans might find this funny and extremely sad.
Today I wore my Hylian Crest shirt to school and someone asked me: "Hey, what game is that shirt from? Skyrim?" Yes this just proves the world as we know it is comming to a close...
Batman1016 - Friday, October 26, 2012
And you shot an arrow into their knee, correct? Because I can think of no more appropriate response. Totally justified, s'far as I'm concerned!

So anyway, how'd you like my figure and inventory customs? Gonna try your hand at the contest?
Jarred706 - Saturday, October 27, 2012
Zelda paved the way for Skyrim...they definitely deserved an arrow to a knee...maybe an air raid from infuriated Cuckoos...

I might try this contest, It's certainly the most interesting custom you've made todate!
Batman1016 - Sunday, November 4, 2012
Well, you're welcome to give it a go, but unfortunately, official entries ended on November 1, I just haven't had a chance to update yet. But if you want to post a list for fun, I'd love to see it. I didn't get much of a turn out for the contest (only five entries ), so if you do well, you might get a consolation prize, as I'm considering giving one to all participants. Not as great as the grand prize, but a nice little token to thank those that put in the effort.

Amazing work brother!
Batman1016 - Friday, October 26, 2012
Thanks so much! Gonna give it a try?
NeCrollector - Friday, October 26, 2012
I'd love to, brother, but, sadly I'm not much of an expert when it comes to Zelda-lore.
Thank you though. I love that you're running this super cool contest on the Realm!
Hopefully more Realmers will follow suit in the future.
Batman1016 - Friday, October 26, 2012
I dunno, it's been like pulling lions' teeth getting people to agree or RSVP for this thing. For what it's worth, you don't HAVE to be an expert on Zelda to get these answers. Heck, even I haven't played half the games, I simply did research on the sites I mentioned above, Zeldapedia and Zelda Wiki. All my info and reference pics came from there, so all anyone has to do is spend a little time looking over the wikis, and they'll find the answers. But no one seems to want to invest the time. Shame too, the prize is gonna be awesome!

Your inventory is amazing! I haven't played a Zelda game since Zelda 2, so I'm out.
Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Aw crud! C'mon, you don't need to have PLAYED the games! Just research them on the sites I mentioned!

Ah well, if no play, no biggie. Thanks for checking out my project!

Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Good showing! You've got some of the games incorrect (mostly on the "specific design" points), and at least one item totally wrong, but you're definitely close! Great job!
Jarred706 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
The sad thing is the bulk of my guesses didn't even involve looking up the images...a lot of them (90% at least), came from pure recollection...mainly due to the fact I have plotted many...many stories in the Zelda U (plotted mind you, not written), and tried to pull info from every game...
Batman1016 - Friday, October 26, 2012
Hey, nothing sad about being a fan! Heck, I don't even hold that dim a view of fanfic, so long as it's A) intelligently written, B) not slash, C) not about self-insertion into a universe, and D) not entirely contrary to the actual spirit of the original works (like nonsense crossovers and total genre shifts and retcons). Honestly, some fanfic can be better that many licensed official works . . . and sometimes, better than the creator's own work (I'm looking at YOU, Lucas!!).
Jarred706 - Friday, October 26, 2012
Amen on the fanfic view...for every well written piece out there, there are at least 120 poorly, Mary-Sue ridden, out of context dreg fictions. Of course as an English Major...I become a little too overwhelmed by it...
Batman1016 - Friday, October 26, 2012
Yeah, I hear that. My mother is an English teacher, so I grew up with the equivalent of a doctorate in vocabulary, grammar, writing structure, and rhetoric. Some may have noticed, what with my . . . elaborate descriptions of my custom figures.
TOK3N - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Dude this is awesome
Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Thanks! Hope you give the contest a try!
Bad_Guy_Robot - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Wow, this is an insane armory. I would not have had the patience to make each individual item to an exact design like that; bravo but as for the contest... I give up lol.
Batman1016 - Thursday, October 25, 2012
Aw, you're not even gonna try? Don't give up so easy!! But hey, thanks so much for checking it out and commenting! Remember, you got a whole week to change your mind!
Bad_Guy_Robot - Monday, October 29, 2012
Well, you've convinced me lol. With the help of my girlfriend (whose and even better LoZ fan than I am), and a few hours work of research/paying close attention to detail, I think we've got them all. I'll be sending my answers in via PM in a few. Again, I have to give you an insane amount of kudos for the attention to detail and sheer awesomeness that you put into your Link and his massive armory.
Batman1016 - Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Got your list, and well done! New entries are going to have to work HARD to beat you guys!
