About my collection

 

Start date: August 2008.

First item bought: Phantom Hourglass Link plushie.

Why I started: It was just for fun, but I've always been a collector at heart.

What I collect: Except for common Zelda items that I like (statues, plushies, posters etc.), I always prefer spending my money on rare, vintage, promotional or limited items. And I looove prototypes!

What I don't collect: Custom made or unofficial items, most of the newly released items (from 2014) by Bioworld, Jakks Pacific, Difuzed etc.

I turned my childhood room into a Zelda room. Having everything displayed in my apartment was at that point impossible.

The collection grew very fast in a very short amount of time.

History of my collection sites

 

2014 - The Zelda Collection Sites:

 

A bit similar to this site, but it was divided differently (IRL vs IG) and without the games having their own sites.

 

 

2009 - Zelda Collection Blog:

 

Background and banners. I was using blogspot.com at the time.

 

These were my "Top 10 Items" that I had on my blog. ..cute.
