First 4 Figures Unveils Real-Life Sheikah Slate Statue Inspired by ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’

First 4 Figures, renowned for their intricate and meticulously crafted gaming collectables, has unveiled a stunning addition to their repertoire: a real-life statue modelled after the iconic Sheikah Slate from the critically acclaimed video game “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.” This announcement has sent waves of excitement through the gaming community, particularly among die-hard Zelda enthusiasts.

For those unfamiliar, the Sheikah Slate holds significant importance within the narrative of Breath of the Wild. Acting as a multifunctional tool, players relied on it for puzzle-solving, menu navigation, and various in-game interactions. Its unmistakable design, reminiscent of both the Wii U gamepad and the Nintendo Switch, made it an integral part of the game’s immersive experience.

However, with the upcoming sequel, “Tears of the Kingdom,” set to introduce the Purah Pad—a device engineered by the character Purah as a successor to the Sheikah Slate—the original item’s legacy is poised for a transition. Yet, its impact on gaming culture remains palpable, evident in the myriad of fan-created replicas and cosplay tributes.

Now, First 4 Figures has stepped up to fulfil the dreams of Zelda aficionados by offering a tangible manifestation of the Sheikah Slate in the form of a semi-functional, life-size statue. The attention to detail in this recreation is nothing short of remarkable, with every aspect meticulously crafted to mirror the rustic, ancient technological aesthetic of its virtual counterpart.

Videos recently shared by First 4 Figures showcase the statue’s design and features, including a faithful reproduction of the Sheikah Slate’s iconic eye symbol and functional screen. Additionally, the statue comes with a display stand, ensuring it can be proudly exhibited in any collector’s gaming shrine.

Not merely an ornamental piece, the Sheikah Slate statue boasts some interactive elements. Accompanied by a base featuring an LED circle, the tablet’s insertion and removal trigger mesmerising colour changes. Pressing the eye button on the tablet prompts the screen to illuminate, further enhancing its immersive appeal.

While it’s important to manage expectations, as the statue cannot replicate the full functionality of its virtual counterpart, it offers fans an opportunity to own a tangible piece of Zelda lore—a testament to the enduring legacy of Breath of the Wild.

This latest addition to First 4 Figures’ catalogue underscores their ongoing collaboration with Nintendo, following previous releases such as statues featuring characters like Daruk, Zelda, and Link, as well as a real-life rendition of the iconic Hylian Shield.

Enthusiasts eager to secure their own Sheikah Slate statue can do so by pre-ordering, with reservations opening on February 20, 2024. Furthermore, registering an account with First 4 Figures entitles buyers to a £10 discount, making this coveted collectible even more accessible to fans.

As gaming continues to evolve, bridging the gap between virtual worlds and reality, offerings like the Sheikah Slate statue serve as a tangible reminder of the enduring impact and cultural significance of beloved titles like “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.” Whether adorning the shelves of dedicated collectors or serving as a conversation starter for gaming enthusiasts, this statue is sure to leave an indelible mark on the hearts of Zelda fans for years to come.
