Zelda props

One of the most brilliant ideas of “Legend of Zelda” inventor Shigeru Miyamoto is to reuse the Zelda props throughout all the games. Be it the Master Sword, the shield, bombs and boomerangs, or even special items like the Ocarina of Time or Majora’s Mask, they all stick to our collective minds. Without further ado, here are the greatest The Legend of Zelda Props to 3D print.

Without further ado, here are the greatest The Legend of Zelda Props to 3D print.

Legend of Zelda Props #1: Zelda Master Sword (Size 2)

394059a07ede4915343e104ad614482683768e76

What is it? It’s a smaller version of Link’s sword, which is more suited for cosplay. It is also also easier to print and to assemble. As you might have guessed from the title, there’s another version, which is considerably bigger – not only to 3D print, but also to wield. This gives you the option as to which Link you would like to cosplay as, because his sword is different sizes in different games.

Who made it? Lloyd Roberts did both versions of this 3D printed Zelda prop.

Everything else is attached with neodymium magnets so that the electronics can be accessed and adjusted or fixed.
