These Link and Samus Aran Action Figures Will Put a Good Smile on Your Face


Japanese hobby product manufacturer Good Smile is set to release a pair of action figures modeled after Nintendo mascot icons Link, as seen in Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and Samus Aran, as she appeared in Metroid: Other M.

As part of the figma product line, the Link and Samus figures each come with display stands, multiple accessories, interchangeable body components and smooth, flexible joints for customizable posing.

Link is armed with his trusty Master Sword and Hylian Shield as well as two facial expressions, including his usual gallant look and a combat shout.
