Link Figma Inbound

Well, after a frightening month of financial troubles, I'm back on my feet.  I now have a partial management position at a local Mark's and am pretty damn happy with the job.  My first order of business after being hired was to celebrate by preordering this beauty of a toy.
The Japanese Figma line is soon to release a highly articulated figure of Link from The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword.  If you've seen the review I did on Skyward Sword several months back, you know I absolutely loved it and absolutely love the Zelda series in general.
The fact that this even exists, along with the previously released Figma of Samus from the Metroid series, is quite shocking.  Nintendo usually keeps a very tight grip on their licenses and thus getting figures of their characters with even decent articulation is almost a lost cause.
Although, Nintendo might actually be letting up a bit since not only have their characters gone to the Figma line, but a few also appeared in the recent movie Wreck-It Ralph.  A fantastic movie by the way but I'll get to that some other time.
For now, this is just a heads up that this thing exists and it looks awesome.  Link is supposed to be released sometime next month and I believe he is still available for preorder on BigBadToyStore.com.  Samus is already released but I don't know offhand if she's still in stock anywhere.
