I loved TLOZ growing up. I played it a lot and beat the game 3 times over. I still listen to the soundtrack sometimes. Translating those old 8-bit graphics into an action figure is basically impossible unless I just want to stick a sword on a bran muffin. Is there a good representation of Link from the original game in action figure form? Even just the artwork?

You don't have a lot of options here sadly.

Medicom made this figurine. It's small and it's a statue, but it is based on the original art. I don't have this one, but I wish I did.

Jakks made a figure based on the game's sprite, with the same caveats as before. A bit over 2 inches tall, doesn't move. It's also flat, so less than an inch thick. This is a cool figure for closely representing the sprite.

Image

If you want a posable figure, your only option is the figma Link Between Worlds. It's not completely classic in the obvious ways, but it's the design Nintendo has been using since the 2000s to evoke that feeling, so it's close. It's also a really good figure.

Image

Hope that helps.

I've always wanted a good figure of that original art Link, carrying all that stuff on his back.

That’s been a dream figure for me since I was a child in the early 90’s pouring over that art in the instruction manual.

Guess I will bite, Amaterasu from Okami for Pop Up Parade.

Not a figma, doesn't have the beads or the sword, but I will still take it.
Thanks for posting this. I grabbed it off the Goodsmile US site.

Samus from Metroid Dread just went up for pre-order this morning! Always glad to get more Metroid figures.

I'm still not sure about the colors, but she looks good.
