This fella goes on sale in Japan in October. He'll run you ¥3,800, or about $48. As you can see in the pics, he's quite posable. And according to a pretty rough translation (beware), it seems he comes with the Master Sword, The Hylian Shield, the sword effects and a pair of facial expressions.

Hah, was looking for release information this yesterday but couldn't find anything.

 

Not too sure if I like his face, but I'll be F5'ing the usual import sites until this goes up.

When doing the news post I thought I'd see if they've done any other Nintendo figures.

 

They hadn't (other than the upcoming Samus) but I did find something and...well...

I don't particularly like LoZ, but I would so buy this if I could!

It's pretty baws and it's not that expensive, tbh.

Reports are in saying some retailers have started shipping this! Except HLJ, who haven't shipped mine. All they've done is changed the item status to discontinued. :(

Emailed HLJ and got a reply today. Turns out they are closed for some sort of Japanese holiday until the 26th which might explain the delay. Didn't say how long they've been closed for but they said they'll be open again on the 26th so hopefully will get shipped then.

 

Tempted to upgrade shipping type to get it faster, but no idea how much that will cost, sometimes it costs more the item your buying.

Got my payment request. They sent me a follow up email this morning which I didn't expect telling me my order would be filled, which I didn't doubt in the first place. Was nice of them to send me a second email though. Couldn't upgrade the shipping, want to see how much faster shipping would be. Oh well.

This figure looks great. Finally a decent Zelda action figure after so many years of mediocrity.

 

Not so sure about the colour of those lips though. Max Factory could have toned those down a little without displeasing Nintendo's licensing department. Maybe the production paint will be less glaring.

So has yours shipped? Mine's still processing, unusual for HLJ to take so long.

Not sure, all I can think of is it's either they are holding over the weekend or you have to pay a customs fee before they'll deliver. Thought they would mention a customs fee if it was that. How much did EMS shipping cost? I cheapened out and did the slowest option. Mind you EMS doesn't seem that fast either.

Oh I paid £30 for mine. £9 more doesn't seem too bad. But yeah don't know why they would need to retain it, other that customs or something. Is there not guide on the site or anything?
