First 4 Figures has announced a new three-year licensing agreement with Nintendo to create statues based on their popular Legend of Zelda series. The statues will be of various characters from several of the series' titles, including the upcoming 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," 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."
The first of the new statues will be previewed at this year's E3 at the Nintendo stand. The figures are expected to be available on the First 4 Figures website and in collectable and specialty stores worldwide in the third quarter of 2006. They will be approximately 9 to 12 inches tall and will retail for $80 to $120 for single statues and may reach over $200 for high end VS dioramas.
