THE OUTER PACKAGING
the collectors edition comes in a huge cardboard box. one that should not be thrown away. the front has the see through area where you can see the Ganon figure. and theres artwork of Ganondorf fighting Link. Zelda is on the side of the box, aiming her light arrows! the back of the box has a similar design to what you will see in the back of the game box.
THE GAME BOX
The game comes in a traditional Wii U dvd-amaray case. the front cover is based on classic wind waker artwork. but everything is gold colored, minus Link who stands out in the middle of the box. the box art is great. I like the UK version more, but i don't mind the gold design. its traditional for many zelda games to have this type of color scheme in their box art. Im OK with it!

Epic box art!
Ganon looks amazing. its too bad we didnt get the clear dome that other regions got. but it figurine is still great!
sadly no dome for those in the US and other western regions
The detail on the figure is amazing. the face! the design on his back. the swords. everything is highly detailed. the sculpting and paint-job is excellent. as you can see from the internet pictures below, the figurine truly captures the wind waker art style and Ganon's look from the game.
GANON AND THE TOMY GACHA TOY LINE
I took video and pictures of Ganon next to the figurines from the zelda blind bag tomy gacha line. when you do that you can almost believe he's a part of that line. and link and tetra from the tomy line are more or less correct in size when compared to the ganon figure. i had a lot of fun putting these figures together.

These tomy gacha figurines are amazing btw. Really well sculpted, painted. I just wish there were more zelda collectible out there. especially action figures. and more figurines of course. cause a lot of the stuff out there is statues, and their way way way expensive. i cant recommend this line enough, and the ganon figurine of course. if you were lucky enough to pre-order the collectors edition before it got sold out, then take care of it. put it on display. and enjoy the amazing ganon figure.

STRATEGY GUIDE and COLLECTION
One of the last things I did for the video was show the prima strategy guide for the original gamecube version of Wind Waker. I love that guide. mainly cause its full of art work. its a fun and colorful book, much like the game itself. and one of my favorite things is the character guide. its full of images that come from the nintendo gallery u create at the forest haven. when you take pictures of characters with the in-game camera [pictobox] you can get them made into statues within the game. and the small ocarina of time guide within the wind waker guide is a nice bonus.
still my favorite prima stategy guide!!
the final segment was going through most of my zelda colection. i forgot to include the club nintendo posters. i showed the games, even the original NES game with box and booklet. many strategy guides. the figurines. watch the video embedded at the beginning of this article to see it all in detail.
the packaging is great. the game box is great. the figurine is amazing. what else is there to say. Highly recommended!! and the game of course is a masterpiece. its still as good now as it was ten years ago. if you have never played it, then go and play the new HD version. or the original version. either way, you will have fun. and the art style is gorgeous, and the graphics amazing. cant believe there are still people out there who haven't played the game because they still cant get over the art style. ITS GORGEOUS!!! and if you play it you will not only get used to it, you will also love it. and you will be experiencing one of the greatest games of all time. cant wait to review it one day! I promise you I will!! written and video review!!!
