Hello everyone! This is I.G. Sakai from Max Factory’s product planning division! Today I’m going to be taking a look at this figure from ‘The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword’ that went up for preorder today!
1/7th Scale Link!
You can just feel the spirit of Link flowing out of the figure! The sculpting by Yuuki Ishiyama and painting by Hiroyuki Hirose of Decomas Lab has come together so perfectly to create a figure filled with variety! As you can from the photo above, Link looks amazing with a shadow cast over him!
▲The photo almost looks more like a painting than a figure!
Taking photos of Link against a black background really makes the figure stand out in a way that it looks more like a painting than a figure! You can see how carefully the figure has made use of the effects of light and shadow as accurately as possible!
▲Size comparison with an iPhone5!
Link is a 1/7th scale figure, but he has a more bulky figure than most female figures giving the figure some very noticeable volume! But anyway, that’s all I’m going to be taking a look at on the blog, but we have also set up a special site where you take a look at more highlights, so be sure to take a look!
■ 1/7th Scale Figure Link Special Site
The special site features close up photos with little explanations, so be sure to take a look! Here is a little peek!
▲ You can really see the detail on the chain mail with a close-up!
Also be sure to take a look at the product page where we have also prepared a video to take a closer look at the video!!
