World of Nintendo Series 2-5 didn’t exactly get amazing distribution (to say the least), leaving 4” figures like Lakitu and Inkling Girl near-impossible to find for many collectors (although both are available online for a mild markup). Hopefully the next series won’t suffer the same distribution woes, though, because it features characters most collectors are going to want, including Iggy Koopa, Mario Maker Mario, and… is that BOTW Link?!
Something must have gone off the rails in the development of the World of Nintendo Breath of the Wild Link figure, because the final product photos look awful.
The extremely broad shoulders and the chubby, cheerful-looking face on Link just don’t feel authentic to me at all. I was anticipating this figure quite a bit, but I’m let down by what we’re seeing here. Hopefully this BOTW Link World of Nintendo figure will look better in-hand.
Rounding out the series are an all-new figure in the form of Iggy Koopa of the Koopa Kids, as well as a yellow Yoshi repaint. Photos of these two haven’t been revealed yet, but I am hyped for that Iggy figure!
Cases of World of Nintendo Wave 11 are now up for order, and are expected to ship out in November 2017. With the holidays upon us, hopefully stores actually order enough stock this time so that this series isn’t impossible to find at retail.
