I've got a few things. All of the retro stuff was bought frist hand back in the 80's, and not from eBay.
- AoL Thermos that came with a Mario lunchbox
- 2" PVC of Link from AoL bought from a gas station Nintendo promo
- Nintendo Power Mario & Link duotang (I can't locate it right now though)
- LoZ wind-up Link
- OoT Link Klick-Candy dispenser (kinda like a Pez dispenser)
- TWW 8" plush Link
- TP 4" vending machine capsule Link
- Hylian Shield Mint container
- LoZ Animated Series DVD Set
- Captain N DVD Set (the later season had Link and Zelda as secondary characters)
- Viz Manga reprints (up to current FS Volume 1)
- First4Figures OoT Adult Link statue
- Master Replicas 1/6 scale Hylian Shield and Master Sword
And I believe that's it! I've thought about getting more of the Frist4Figures statues, but the characters don't appeal to me that much (Shiek, Skull Kid, Fierce Diety Link). I'm excited to see their next offerings though, which appear to be from TP. I'll definitely get whatever they offer there.
I think it's really cool. I looked into getting one once, but to me, for what is was, the price wasn't right. The design always looks a little... Off, on every single one I have seen. It's something that'd be cool to have, however, I see it as more as an impulse buy, something you'd get without thinking about it, but if you actually stopped and thought, 'is there any point in me having this?' The answer would be no. At least, it would for me.
It's great you got it as a gift though. That way you get a seriously cool Hylian Shield, without your conscience telling you that you could have saved that money or used it in a far more sensible way.
I only have all the PH statue thingies (they have a specific name, but I forgot what it was). I also have a TWW self printed poster. I got the file from the old Nintendo Benelux website as an extra gift when I registered TWW, but I was so smart not to save it on my computer and it is not available anymore. I still have the poster, but it is over 3 years old. I want to reprint it, but I can't find the file anywhere
Just for the fun, a picture of my PH statue thingies (just ignore the two handheld zelda games in the background)
Gold Zelda DS
Zelda Cards (the old, old, old ones from late 80's/90's)
Triforce necklace (absolutely gorgeous, I might add- one of gold crystals, one of clear crystals)
Various Zelda shirts
Hylian Shield mints case
Phantom Hourglass DS sleeve
Zelda wallet w/metal Hylian Symbol & Chain
All Himekawa mangas
Zelda Cartoon on VHS and DVD
I'm sure there's many more I forgot to list, and I'm still adding to my collection. Often.
The Nintendo Power Twilight Princess soundtrack. (there are like five songs on it)
A small alto A ocarina. (Sounds like a whistle. XD)
Twilight Princess guide
Ocarina of Time full soundtrack (like 80 songs I think)
Zelda: Link to the Past t-shirt that I haven't worn in ages
I think that's about it; if I remember anything else, I'll write it down.
Sadly I currently own nothing aside from games and a homemade hat. But I do plan to one day own a Master Sword replica (not sharp of course don't want the temptation when my sisters get annoying), a Hylian Shield Replica (man I found such a cool one online), and on my 16th birthday I plan on getting a triforce tattoo on the back of my left hand. In fact I even have my own makeshift Link outfit (made out of a longsleeve green shirt and a brown belt). So then I can dress up like Link and whack the air with the replica Blade of Evil's Bane.
Hmm... I'm trying to remember what I have, because I have a lot.
