Zelda props

Looking for Legend of Zelda props? Here are the 22 greatest Legend of Zelda props you can 3D print. You can even get them 3D printed.

One of the most brilliant ideas of video game legend Shigeru Miyamoto is to reuse the props, enemies and themes throughout all his 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.

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

What is it? It’s a smaller version of Link’s sword, which is more suited for cosplay. It is 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.

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.
