The lights are on
Update: The statue is now available for pre-order, and like most of First 4 Figures statues comes in two versions. The image above is the standard version, which is limited to 1,500 units and carries a sticker price of $424.99. First 4 Figures hopes to ship this statue in the second quarter of 2012. The "exclusive" edition, which features a bronze finish (and looks a bit odd, in my opinion), is limited to 50 units and is a bit more expensive at $449.99.
Original Story: The teaser image above gives a small taste of a statue Zelda fans have been demanding for years. First 4 Figures plans to show the full statue tomorrow on its website, but has dropped a few hints about what fans can expect from it. Just know this: It's huge. First 4 Figures says it is the heaviest and largest sculpt they've ever made (17 inches tall and 16 inches from front to back). This sculpt is based off of the character models from Twilight Princess.
Along with the full unveiling, pre-orders will begin tomorrow. Given the size of this statue, I'm guessing we'll be looking at $300 plus. Start smashing those pots, Zelda fans. You're going to need every rupee you can find to add this beauty to your collection.

Dude that's insane and yeah the "bronze" finish one looks really creepy lol. Nice looking but I ain't shelling out that kinda money for this, haven't even played a Zelda title since Majora's Mask lol
Pre-ordered the Standard Edition a couple of hours ago. It was about $100 more than I wanted to pay, but I had to have it. I don't like the way the bronzed version looks.
*500, not "50".
"Zelda and Epona"? Link. :)
The exclusive edition looks like ass... no incentive to get that one.
Some people have WAY too much money on their hands.
So I guess I'm the only one that thinks the bronze finish looks 2x as cool? Anyway, looks like you'll need the..."Giant's Wallet" for this one?
I dont even understand the bronze finish one... why do a bronze finish? Did I forgot about some part of the game? XD
I bought the Fierce Deity statue some years back when it first came out. I like this one but not for the price. I wish I had gotten my hands on a Dark Link... It'd look BA next to Fierce Deity
These things always cost so much!
If you have money to waste on this, help out someone else, as well as buy this for yourself.
The bronze one does look a little bit odd but dang that is a lot of money. Better start saving now.
wow looks cool
thats alot of money
