Do you like the look of the Link's Awakening amiibo?

Here's what the amiibo looks like in detail

One of the major differences with this amiibo is the gloss finish. As far as I can remember all of the amino before this one has a matt textured finish. This LA amiibo is has a smooth gloss finish. Also the colours chosen are very bold, contrasting with each other and nearly perfectly replicate what is on screen when you play the game.

So what is your opinion on the Link's Awakening amiibo?

No, it looks very derpy and lifeless. Other Link Amiibos have some kind of distinctive pose, but this one looks like it played the Elegy of Emptiness and froze himself. The textures do look nice, I just wish that the end product was a bit livelier.

I think the black eyes and frown do that. There's a lot to be said about how your eyes can show your emotion.
I agree with you that the final finish is really good but the pose and facial expressions are lacking in a few ways.

Looks like he does in the game... I'm still not 100% on the artstyle but it is cute.

I wish he'd had a pose though instead of just standing there. But I guess that's what toys do?

It’s easily my favorite amiibo so far. The thing is adorable and the finish is so amazing. I don’t really understand the whole “lifeless” complaint, it definitely looks more lifelike then the Toon Link smash amiibo.

I have this now and it is nice and shiny. It still doesn't sell me on the artstyle though.

I even looked at his shield to see if he name was on it because I thought that would have been a nice touch.

Unfortunately not though.
