First 4 Figures is proud to announce a three-year licensing agreement with Nintendo for the rights to create statues based on The Legend of Zelda franchise, including characters from the hotly-anticipated The Legend of Zeldaź: Twilight Princess.
"We are very excited to be working with Nintendo on the Legend of Zelda brand. The franchise has clearly stood the test of time, having just celebrated its 20th Anniversary. The first game captured the imagination of a generation, with the following games capturing the imagination of another and then another. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess looks all set to do the same," says Alex Davis, director of First 4 Figures. "We will be mainly concentrating on doing statues based on the games The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess."
There are plans for single statues, mixed media statues, and VS dioramas.
The first in the series of statues will be previewed at this year's upcoming E3 on Nintendo's stand with product anticipated to come to market the third quarter of 2006. They will be available in collectible and specialty stores worldwide as well as directly at the First 4 Figures website. They will stand approximately 9 to 12 inches tall and will retail for $80 to $120 for single statues and $200+ for high end VS dioramas.
Current product development plans include, but not limited to:
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Ganondorf VS Link Diorama
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Fierce Deity Link
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
