Are you prepared for Ganon’s return? If not, The Good Smile Company has your back with the forthcoming Nendoroid Link: The Wind Waker figure! As adorable as he is fierce, Link is equipped with his Hero’s Sword and Hero’s Shield, a Heart Container, the Wind Waker baton, and enough expressions to power anyone’s dream stop motion film! Link also comes with two pairs of arms, two sets of hands, two pairs of legs, and a sword slashing effect, for truly epic battle displays.

The Good Smile Company really nailed the playful Wind Waker incarnation of Link, and I love all of the tiny details that went into making this figure. Link’s tunic bunches up near the top of his belt, there are little folds in the crooks of his bent arms, and the gold detailing on the Triforce on Link’s shield and his belt buckle look awesome!

Nendoroid Link is currently available for preorder from Crunchyroll, and is set to release by the end of August.

So, what happens when even the reincarnated Hero of Time isn’t enough to take down your enemies? That’s when you call in Mikasa Ackerman, the stoic Titan killer from Attack On Titan! This 1/8th scale figure of the 104th Trainee Squad’s highest-ranking Graduate is sculpted with such fine detail that no matter how much time you spend looking at it, there will always be new elements that jump out at you.

Mikasa might just be the new centerpiece of your collection. She is frozen in motion, which might sound like a contradiction, but that’s part of what really shines about this piece; the sense of movement is communicated very elegantly here. Mikasa’s hair and clothing are windswept, as though she’s just slain a Titan and is looking for her next target. The cords of her Vertical Maneuvering Equipment are soaring with her, and even with all of her gear she looks light as a feather. Also, the amount of detail placed into all of her gear, from her blades to her belts, is incredible.

Mikasa is available in both a Standard and Deluxe edition, but with a mere eleven-dollar difference between the two, it’s a no-brainer to Titan Size your order and snag that sweet rooftop base. Mikasa is currently available for preorder from Crunchyroll, and is set to release by mid November.
