  • This is another amiibo that doesn't do anything exclusive, but does help keep you stocked up for all that archery that helps keep you stealthy when entering an enemy camp.Nazzrose

    Nice quality figure, decent in-game bonuses

    For those not in the know, Amiibos are special figures that can grant certain bonuses when scanned into various Nintendo games that support them. In the case of this particular version of Link (there's a few different versions of him on the market), scanning him into the latest Zelda title, Breath of the Wild, will often give you some of the stronger bows in the game as well as bundles of arrows. These aren't absolutely needed to complete the game, but they are a nice, quick freebie when you're trying to save rupees. As for the figure itself, it's pretty nice, showing Link in a dynamic pose that's been shown many times in promotional material for this game. I especially like how instead of a somewhat-distracting pole to keep him in a midair pose, the design has a puff of dust acting as support, feeling more in-context with the action being portrayed. The colors are nice, too, and will help it to stand out of a sea of mostly green-clad Links in your collection. Even if you don't own the game that this currently supports, I'd say pick this figure up if you're a fan of the series in general.

    Pretty Good Quality for an Amiibo

    This Amiibo is quite detailed and is in a dynamic pose where Link is in the process of shooting an arrow. I like how the stand that holds onto Link to keep him upright blends into the figure as a cloud of dust. This makes the stand feel like a part of the figure rather than just a support beam like the yellow colored stand from the Super Smash Bros. Link Amiibo. The figure does have some minor flaws. There are some slight paint bleeds in Link's belts and his quiver of arrows are all clumped together as one chunk of plastic rather than have each arrow individually made. The bow he's holding is also not stringed. For a figure that is this small (around 3.5"), minor flaws like these are to be expected. The Amiibo functionality for Archer Link in the games is quite underwhelming. This Amiibo provides random items like food and possibly bows and arrows in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U. However, as a collectible, this Amiibo is quite excellent.

    Not too sure if this is made for people who collect these items or a way to get items in the game (Breath Of The Wild) but it does work (sadly only once a day.... Real life day, not game day) and does give some food and a chest that varies from arrows and bows (sadly, no ancient arrows) but not sure what else game this is used for besides Breath Of The Wild and Skyrim. If you collect Amiibos, like Zelda games and collectibles, enjoy the in game items or just want to spend money; then this is for you. If you have no use for this, you may not want to buy it, I bought it because I wanted to try an Amiibo and I use this daily to get food and loot but besides that, it just sits on my little collectible box I made with the rest of my collectibles. Lol

    Amiibo are always a huge hit with gamers and collectors alike, making the new Botw additions a huge thumbs up in my book. Archer Link is the first one I picked up after seeing closeup photos online (seriously, the detail on this amiibo are insane. You'd be crazy not to put it on display for the design alone) and I don't regret my purchase one bit. Yes, it looks great, but it's functionality is a creative add on to an already fantastic game. The items you get from scanning it into the game are helpful and well appreciated in an open world survival game like botw. Whether it's for the design or in-game functionality, if you are thinking about picking up this amiibo, do it! I'm eyeing the others now myself...

    Good Model, A Bit Of A Cheat

    I've been a lifelong player of the Legend of Zelda series and have always felt that, like many others, Ocarina of Time is the gold standard by which all the other games are measured. After playing through Breath of the Wild, I have to admit that I think that standard has changed. This game has everything you could ever want in a Zelda title...it is incredibly fun to pick up and play, is challenging, and let's you work at your own pace. There is so much to explore and discover it's almost overwhelming after you get into it. By utilizing the great functionality of the Switch, this game is just as good on the go as it is on your TV screen. I have not played the WiiU version, but know several people that have it and they tell me it is just as good as it is on the Switch. If you own either console, this game is a must buy.

    My daughter originally thought that having Amiibo for her Zelda Breath Of The Wild game was a gimmick until she played it over at a friends place who had the complete set, twice. One set to use in the game and one left unopened as like a collector set. I originally thought having more than one of each was a waste of money until I started trying to get a few for my daughter and realized what they could sell for. Thanks to Best Buy I haven't had to spend extra to add enjoyment to my daughter's game as now she gets why the game was designed to include them. This is a must for any person playing the game especially if they think they have finished the game because without the Amiibo, even if from other games like Smash Bros., you haven't exhausted all of the possibilities yet.

    Zelda BoW a must have for BoW

    I am new to amiibos characters. Our Nintendo switch is our first console for us where we can use amiibos so I do not have any prior experience with them. I own all the Disney infinity collection but that works for PS4 This character was very well built and I like the quality of the material they used I also like the fact you can use this amiibos for Zelda BoW once everyday in the game which maximizes the use of this amiibo and any other amiibo since you can literally use ANY amiibo figurine on the Zelda game for he switch. I am sure Wii U version too. I would recommend this if you like collecting amiibo but you will soon encounter yourself with a lot of them and I big whole in your wallet Regardless if you are a Zelda fan I would recommend getting these amiibos

    Any of the zelda franchise amiiboos are a great asset to have when playing BOTW. However, these both collection amiibos are a especially helpful in getting better drops during the game. Each zelda amiibo has it's own exclusive items that can be received when tapping the amino during BOTW. I won't say what items you will get out of this amigo for spoiler sake, but I will say that you you will be happy with each drop! Some of the chests contain various elemental arrows and weapons among other great weapons and items. food and ingredients are usually dropped along with these chests as well. Make sure you get these amiibos if you're a Zelda fan, as a collector, these are getting harder and harder to find!
