Nintendo The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Amiibo Link AmiiboI saw the The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Amiibo Link figure in stores a few days early, but waited for my pre-order with the game to show up Its a neat figure that's functionally unnecessary but is kind of cool. It unlocks an optional variable in a side quest of the game, as well as a room - it's not particularly great as far as game interaction goes. Scanning Link gives you a new room in Dampe's Dungeon, and you can also scan it to get the Dark Link addition in that same area. You can finish the game without setting foot in the new Dampe area, but if you're a completist you can scan this Amiibo twice and never look at it again. Functionally, you could just scan a friend's or maybe ask the nice lady at the game store if you can "borrow" it for about forty seconds. But the figure is why you're here.

With some of the best paint on any of these figures, Link is utterly bizarre. It's a toy of a video game made to look like a toy version of an old video game. Old Man Ulrira would appreciate this kind of a game of telephone, making a strange descendant of a tiny black and white sprite from the early 1990s. Since I loved the previous versions of the game I had to have it - and it's OK. The paint on the hair is gorgeous, and the figure has a shiny, candy-like finish that reminds me of some Christmas ornaments.

Made of several pieces of plastic, Link is mostly a hard figure with some give in the sword and shield. The base is your typical Zelda Amiibo base, and its a nice little statue with big black eyes and a lot of painted detail. There's a painted belt buckle. The hat trim is a lighter green. The shield is covered in detail. The boots are even given a different shade of brown on the soles.

At worst, this is an expensive collectible figure. Or maybe it's a cheap statue. $16 is a lot more than the $13 price point we started to buy Amiibo at a few years ago, but it's not like you have lots of options for Nintendo collectibles on the cheap. With Jakks Pacific's line decaying to all Mario all the time, Amiibo and Japanese imports are about the best options you have these days. I would not recommend Link for his in-game interactivity, but if you like the toy-like look of the game you'll probably be hard-pressed to find a better representation in the real world. Snag it at the right price.
