We’ve seen a good amount of merchandise for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild hit shelves and online shops ever since the game’s release on Switch and Wii U last year. While a new Link figure itself should come to no surprise as a release for series fans, we think you should take note of this particular collectible.

Quite recently, Medicom introduced its newest piece to the world: a Real Action Heroes BotW Link. Standing approximately 11.8 inches (300 millimeters) tall, this incredible guy is dressed from head to toe in details that you’ll find incorporated on no other Link statue or figure. Not only are his main garments made out of real fabric, but included with him are accessories like a bow and arrow set (five arrows), a sword, a shield, several PVC hand parts (offering different poses), and multiple PVC faces to swap in and out for a variety of expressions. The realistic textures alone are enough to bring the character to life, and being given the ability to have Link strike a multitude of poses for photos and/or display is reason to consider adding the set to any collection. You can pick it up for roughly $280, plus shipping.

To help give you a better idea of the treat you’re in for with this set, we’ve taken photos of BotW Link in action. Check out our gallery below to get a closer look at what you can expect from the beautiful, posable figure. And if these captures sway you towards making the purchase, you can check with your local import shop to see what the stock is like. This addition is more than worth it!
