Retro Toy Chest Day 4: The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda is a series of videogames that debuted in 1986 and, along with a few other iconic titles (Mario Bros, Duck Hunt, etc) helped put the original Nintendo Entertainment System on the map.

‘’ The series centers on Link, the playable character and chief protagonist. Link is often given the task of rescuing Princess Zelda and the kingdom of Hyrule from Ganon, who is the principal antagonist of the series; however, other settings and antagonists have appeared in several titles. The games' plots commonly involve a relic known as the Triforce, a set of three omnipotent golden triangles.’’ – Synopsis from

Zelda VAMP with Link by Dusty79

Since 1986, Zelda has pretty much been a mainstay in the video game realm. While it did not always have a toy presence, it still brings back feelings of nostalgia to think of exploring Hyrule and saving Princess Zelda. I spent hours playing Zelda on the original Nintendo system and must admit I never beat it. Ocarina of Time came later (which I did beat several times) and is now what comes to mind for me when I think of Zelda. This Link figure was based on that version and the VAMP was just a fun way to tie GI Joe into this project. It's a what if....what if Epona was a VAMP?
