Dark Link Statue Is Impressive...And Dark

So he finally arrived.

After months and months of waiting, my exclusive edition Dark Link First4Figures statue finally made its way to GI's doorstep this past week. What makes this particular statue "exclusive," and thus oh so special, is Link's glowing red eyes (that pierce into the very depths of your soul) and the shimmering water effect thanks to a set of pulsating lights (and two AAA batteries, of course). It's a subtle but striking effect. The statue is downright spooky when placed in total darkness. Not that I sit in a dark room and just stare at this thing. Who do you take me for?

As per usual, the level of detail is impressive indeed. First4Figures never ceases to amaze with the care they put into crafting each of these statues. Of particular note is Dark Link's shield. The contrast of silver and black would even make Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis proud. Overall, it's a fairly simplistic color palette (as far as First4Figures statues go), but by no means does it detract from what is undoubtedly one of the cooler statues in my collection. It's Dark Link after all, he was never one for flash. But as you can see, he's an imposing figure to be sure.

So now this bad boy can sit along side my Ocarina of Time Link and Fierce Deity Link statues. It's a fricken smorgasbord of Links, I tell ya. The only thing missing now is Epona...

Uh oh. And so the wait begins all over again.
