Jakks Pacific toy company is currently producing several new lines of Nintendo figures, including a handful of characters from The Legend of Zelda series. Just a few months ago, the toy company had only released a single Link figure in the form of Skyward Sword. In a reveal of their upcoming wave of figures, you might be pleased to hear that Skull Kid, Toon Ganondorf, Ocarina of Time Link, and a Wind Waker Micro World play set will be released throughout 2015.
Hit the jump for information!
Though the dates may seem confusing, the photograph above suggests that the Micro World will be available sometime in May of 2015. It’s currently unclear when the Wind Waker Microset will be released and if they will include their matching figures. Notice how Toon Link and Tetra are also featured in the Micro World set. This could mean that there could very well could be Micro World sets in works, likey featuring other Nintendo franchises and possibly other Zelda games.
Meanwhile, if you happened to have missed out on the Ganondorf figurine that came with the Wind Waker HD Limited Edition, this could be a decent enough replacement (despite their difference in quality). Unfortunately Jakks Pacific hasn’t released any previews of the Skull Kid and Ocarina of Time Link figures. Furthermore, there has yet to be any word on the price range (although the previous wave was around the $8.99 mark).
