    Great quality amiibo with cool in-game reward

    Wolf Link amiibo was a pretty rare find after it sold out, and it would be listed at a very high price, but good thing Best Buy re-stocked on the update Wolf Link. The build quality on the amiibo is solid (you can feel some more weight to it compared to other amiibos), and the paint job is very detailed. I really appreciate the fact that Wolf Link is standing on top of some stones instead of the annoying small clear stands that hold some amiibos in place. The reward received from Wolf Link amiibo is being able to have him fight along side you in Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild game. Wolf Link mostly bashes towards enemies, and can teleport around when Link is out of reach. Wolf Link's health is three heart containers, but can be healed by feeding him food.

    I started collecting amiibo's a little late into the game, like really late. This was one of the many zelda amiibos I missed out on and was really excited to see that best buy was doing preorders for another release of this figure. the secondary market for amiibo is a bit out of control some ranging in the up fifty dollar to hundred range. the functionality of the amiibo aside they always have such a great sense of detail to them and are a great size for display either in or out of packaging. The collector in me just wishes there was a way to use these while also keeping them in the original packaging. A little bit of me dies inside when I have to open one to use the functions for in game bonuses.

    Well made and mostly useful in Breath of the Wild

    This is my first Amiibo purchase. I have these sorts of figures for Skylanders and Disney Infinity so I can only compare it to those. The Amiibo is very well made, highly detailed and simply cool to look at. (SPOILER HERE ABOUT HIS IN GAME) - His in-game ability for Zelda Breath Of The Wild, is to be a companion for Link. He will fight, so he isn't just for looks. That said, I've not seen a way to really control him other than to have him stay or follow. He has relatively low life (3 hearts) and will attack anything that would attack Link, within a fairly wide range. This has caused him to activate otherwise hidden or non-engaged critters. It's not terrible but it's not the best addition to your arsenal. Even with that flaw, I recommend it as a collectible and for in-game. Just use it wisely.

    Comes in handy as a helper in Zelda Breath of wild

    Great to have in a pinch when you use him in Zelda Breath of the Wild. Especially if you can get him to full health (20 hearts). Note: You need to upgrade him to max health in twilight princess HD. Or have someone with a Wii u do it for you. That's the only con with Wolf Link, because if you do not do this, he will only have 3 hearts aka health. He also helps you find items and hunt wild game. It conserves your arrows. You have to grab the meat before him if he is low on health. Otherwise he'll eat it before you can get to it.

    I collect amiibo characters more than I use them for the games. I like that Wolf Link is available by itself as I do have another version that came with the Twilight Princess HD for the Wii U. It's great to see that the figure itself is standing on a surface other than the round stand that most other stand on. The detail is amazing, including the paint job. This is a great item to get for a Zelda game player.

    Solid amiibo with nice functionality

    The Wolf Link amiibo is a slightly larger than average amiibo with nice heft to it. Most importantly, it has great functionality, working with both Twilight Princess HD and Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I have not used it with TPHD, where I believe he opens up a bonus dungeon, but I do use it regularly in Z:BOTW, where scanning the amiibo will bring Wolf Link to fight by your side. As a crossover bonus, Wolf Link's hearts in Z:BOTW are augmented by how strong you've made Link in TPHD. Recommended for Zelda fans and anyone who wants to enhance two great Zelda experiences.

    It's totally worth it if you have Twilight Princess on the Wii U. Use this with that game and if you complete all the dungeons, you can use it in BOTW and Link wolf will have 20 hearts. He's pretty cool to have except when you're trying to be sneaky. He'll catch birds for you before they fly off, so you can collect meat, and he'll help you fight. However he'll run off ahead of you and wake up a sleeping Hinox. Come on, wolf me. If you don't play it with Twilight Princess, Link wolf will only have 3 hearts when you scan it in BOTW.

    Working on my Legend of Zelda collection and the detail of these are pretty great. Twilight Princess was one of my fav games and this Amiibo does not disappoint. Missed out on the first wave and was worried there might be a dip in quality, but that is not the case. Great quality all around. Can't wait for more to be released or re-released.

    This is one of the cooler looking Amiibo, especially the fur details. I got it to work in Breath of the Wild on the Switch, in which it summons a Wolf Link to fight with you. It's a neat idea, but the only way to make the summoned wolf stronger involves using the Amiibo on the WiiU remake of Twilight Princess. I don't have that system or game, so it's a bit frustrating to miss out on some of the content in a Switch game because of it. But it still looks great.

    The Legend of Zelda Amiibo lineup continues to set the bar high for other Amiibos and collectibles. The amount of detail here is really impressive. The detail that really blew me away was that Wolf Link is standing on two separate stones, instead of just standing on the simple NFC stand. I would highly recommend this for any LoZ fan.

    Cool collectible with bonus

    First getting into the AMIIBO gameplay with Nintendo. I half expected this to be some really cheap piece of plastic. Its actually well made little collectible. Plus the bonus of using it with Amiibo compatible games like BOTW. Use in Twilight Princess HD is limited to just opening up the Cave of Shadows but once you do, go online on how to get the Wolf Link to 20 hearts in T.P. HD/Cave of Shadows to use with BOTW.

    Fun addition to BOTW, not too useful without TP

    Using this amiibo in BOTW gives you Wolf Link companion that follows you around and attacks enemies. My main complaints are that it only has three hearts unless you used it in Twilight Princess HD for Wii U (which most people didn't pick up) which gives you lots more hearts and you can only use it once a day (which wouldn't be a problem if for more hearts). I use it mostly for decoration/collectible item though.

    While I do not have a Wii U or Twilight Princess HD (Since I had it for the original Wii) this figure is still a slight fun additional to the game as a companion that can kill some enemies for you with it's 3 Hearts. If you have Twilight Princess HD you can save the amount of hearts you have to make it last even longer. With this Amiibo also having a 24 hour cooldown you don't get to use it that often sadly.

    Excellent Link figure with an exclusive bonus

    If you're a fan of Twilight Princess at all, this one is highly recommended. The detailing is very very good and features both Wolf Link and Midna which is awesome. What sets this over the top as that it unlocks Wolf Link as a companion in Breath of the Wild which is exclusive to this figure. Unlike other amiibo, you can also scan this one multiple times a day in the game.

    So Awesome I Bought Two!

    I originally got one of these with the Wii U Twilight Princess game, and I wanted to keep the original intact, but the new Breath Of The Wild game made it possible for me to add Wolf Link to the game, and I couldn't pass that up. I didn't want to open the original one, so I bought an additional one separately, and it's been working great. This is still my favorite Amiibo to date.

    My son and I use Nintendo's amiibos in many games we play on the Switch and so when we saw the Wolf Link amiibo, we had to have it. The build quality and attention to detail on these are amazing. Make sure you sign up for Best Buy's Gamers Club Unlocked as it will save you 20% on all new games (which include amiibos). A MUST have for a gaming family :-)

    These are great additions to what may be the best Zelda game ever made. My daughter didn't get the game when it was first released so we missed out on some of the related amiibo so I was glad to see Best Buy was one of few businesses to get these back in stock.

    I went looking for this item immediately when I found out there was going to be a restock. I'm so glad I found it. It comes in handy when playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The amiibo allows you to summon a companion that's able to assist you in hunting wild life and take down enemies. For anyone playing BOTW or is collecting amiibos, this is a MUST BUY!

    As in most of amiibos, build quality is excellent, and so is the level of detail. Faithfully recreated from Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess game, and possibly even more detailed than from in game model. Midna and Wolf link look more fantastic and alive. Still haven't used amiibo features due to waiting to get both Twilight Princess HD and Breath of the Wild.

    I was lucky enough to stumble across this Amiibo before they were sold out again. As a popular second hand market item this gem will run top dollar if you cannot find it retail but what it does for the game is bring more useful items on a daily bonus type offering. The details in this figurine are well done and offer a nice piece to the collection.
