Everyone remembers that historic moment in their childhood when they first wielded the Master Sword. For Eugene Thompson, instead of defeating Ganon with the sacred sword, he had to deal with a far worse enemy; an angry ex husband.

Last Saturday night, Eugene Thompson and his girlfriend engaged in an argument in their Houston home. Kay, Eugene’s girlfriend, called her ex-husband to come to the home when the altercation began. The estranged husband was let into the house by Kay and proceeded to the back bedroom where Thompson had fled. Thompson went to his closet where he grabbed a Legend of Zelda replica Master Sword and proceeded to defend himself from the ex-husband, who had a flower pot in his hand. The two fought, which led to the ex-husband being stabbed once in the chest and once in the leg.

The New York toy fair concluded nearly a week ago, and as all the excitement of new toys and figures dissipates my excitement does not. The fair showcased a select variety of special figures, and by the picture on the left, you can see that these figures are Legend of Zelda figures. These two figures are being published by Dark Horse, who is most notable for their work with comic books, and will be available this July. The figures, as you can see, are expertly crafted and look gorgeous. The two of them are based off of Link and Ganon from Twilight Princess (obviously), with Link wielding the signature Master Sword and the Hylian Shield, and it looks like his hat is blowing in the wind as he courageously stares you down. While Ganon looks pretty upset and ready for a fight, as he looks on menacingly.

Check out Link and more details after the jump!

Chances are you haven't been keeping up with the Wonder Festival. Last year a Toon Link nendoroid was announced and we got our first look of at it over at our Facebook page. But what's more interesting is that Link is going to get another figma based off his A Link Between Worlds design. No physical product was shown.

Link received a Skyward Sword figma a few years back and can be seen all over Zeth of Hyrule's tumblr in some great misadventures. Of course, other figmas were announced such as one based off Zero Suit Samus and Cordelia from Fire Emblem: Awakening. we don't know of announce date for the figma or nendoroid, but will keep you posted!

Dungeons are filled with locked doors and multiple chests filled with small keys, big keys, normal Keese, Fire Keese, and sometimes no keys! Skyward Sword had its own line of special keychains based on items found within its game and it looks like the recent Zelda entry will be getting the same treatment!

A Link Between Worlds will receive 5 keychains in the near future and while there is no real visual form of these keychains, you can see some artwork depicting what the physical keychains will look like. The keychains will be made by Bandai and be available later in the month of May if all goes smoothly.

I myself missed on the last batch of keychains, although they're still available on eBay for a fair price, so I'm looking forward to these. Will you be picking the new keychains up?

We at Zelda Informer love sexy stuff. And this shirt up for sale on ShirtPunch is more than that. For those unfamiliar, ShirtPunch offers daily game related designs of shirts that will be available for 24 hours and no more. Well, buckle up folks and pull out your credit cards, because at the time of writing, there's only 15 hours left to grab this amazing design.

Another notable thing—this is a returning design, due to its overwhelming popularity the first time around. This simply means that after today, you will never be able to buy this shirt ever again. What the hell are you waiting for?

Do you live in Europe? Are you getting ready to pre-order the GAME exclusive version of A Link Between Worlds? Well, too bad, because your pre-order will have to wait. GAME has temporarily removed the bundle due to an error with the pre-order bonus download codes for Link's Awakening that come with the product.

Unfortunately we have had to temporarily remove The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds GAME Exclusive Collectors Edition due to a fault with the download code for the Pre Order bonus code for The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening.
We are looking into this issue and will hopefully have this available for purchase as soon as possible.

GAME is looking into the issue and plans the make the Collector's Edition available for pre-order once more as soon as possible. A Link Between Worlds will launch in Europe and North America on November 22nd, while Australia will have to wait an extra day till the 23rd.

Don't be too surprised those of you in Europe, but it seems Nintendo may have let it slip a tad early that GAME would be offering a special Zelda chest for pre-ordering A Link Between Worlds. According to the retailer GAME on Twitter, the store has no pre-orders ready for announcement at the moment, but do have something special coming soon.

“You may have seen last night @NintendoUK tweeted about a pre-order chest item for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. We have no pre-order bonus to announce BUT you can be sure we’re working with Din, Nayru & Farore to bring you something special… Until then, feast your eyes on this special LoZ: A Link Between Worlds #3DSXL available to pre-order tomorrow!”

It seems a bit counter-intuitive to deny something that was officially announced by Nintendo, especially when the pre-order bonus is on GAME Spain's website. But good news is there for Australian fans of Zelda as EB Games will be offering the chest as a nice bonus to those who pre-order A Link Between Worlds.

Hope you weren't expecting Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS to come with no clone characters past Luigi, because Toon Link has just been confirmed to be smashing his way into the Nintendo all-star brawl!
