The Legend of
Zelda 35th Anniversary
35 years ago,
the first Zelda game was released.
In the occasion
of this, I've finally managed to play through the Second Quest and
added that to the in-game section!
The Minish Cap,
Twilight Princess and The Wind Waker
The new update
got a bit delayed
because of my newborn baby, but three new hearts have now
End of 2020
is coming in January (I'm almost done).
See you in
one of the biggest updates I've done, because I decided to re-do
almost all of the pictures in the galleries.. They're still
quite small (because I don't want to use up the website space
I'm already paying a certain amount for), but the quality is
better + I've split up figures and added all variations. I also
added lots of other things around the site. More details about
-Added Stray Fairies to the right, showing all current Zelda
photos and information about my old websites in the About.
Bergsala visit and ZU's 30th Anniversary Contest in the Events.

Ages / Seasons
Picture Gallery Updates
-Changed most of the pictures so they look clearer.
-Added seperate pictures of all figures, cards, stickers etc.
for the previous games.
-Added color variations for the previous games. They will be in
the same picture, but counts as individual items, just like an
official count by GWR (3 color variations = 3 items). Boxed
items/sets always count as one item, and will only show up in
-Added an "Unofficial"
section (I could basically put anything here from Etsy, but I'll
try to focus on items people often mistake as being official).
These items do not count for the total amount at the bottom.
-Added a total of 504 new items.
UPDATE: Added a little information for each item, which you
can see by hovering over the picture. I'm only done with OoA/OoS
and FS so far, but obviously the main goal is to do it with ALL
-Added a picture of my save-file and the Photo Album pictures in
Link's Awakening DX.
Ocarina of Time &
hearts have been added.
On to the next
finally here. It's definitely been a weird time.. not just for
me I'm sure, but for the whole world. In my particular case I
was working from home from the end of March, and that was fine.
As of right now though, it looks like I won't be going back to
work at all this year. So that means I suddenly have a whole
lot of time on my hands to just do whatever. Anything except
currently trying to update as much as possible on this site, and
I'll hopefully be done with the Ocarina of Time + Majora's Mask
section this summer. And then I'll just continue on with all
games up to the game I'm currently playing. I just finished
Phantom Hourglass, so I'll be starting on Spirit Tracks next.
that I don't have much else planned. Just trying to eat a bit
more healthy and going for short walks in safe areas, as I tend
to sit on my ass way more than I should now especially during
The start of 2020
did not go as planned..
Happy New Year!
got a few plans and goals for 2020.. do you?
from my time in Cologne to the Event site!
Added about 50
new pictures to the merchandise gallery, including a total
number of each section.
So far, I have
1055 pictures (LoZ, AoL, ALttP and LA together). And I'm far
from even halfway. ..which tells you a lot about how much Zelda
merchandise is actually out there.
I still can't
believe that a remake of this game is coming soon.. Can't wait
to play it!
update is for the one from 1993/1998. The database with pictures
didn't take too long this time, as there's not a lot of
merchandise from this game out there. Which is kinda sad.
to the Past
the third heart. .. only 18
more to go! X) I wonder how many I'll get done this year?
I have a few
more LoZ/AoL merchandise pictures to put up as well, but I'll do
it with the next update.
One of my
goals for this year was to make a new Zelda-site. It's obviously
far from done, but at least it's here now. Just another lifetime
project. Yay.. xD
After I got my world record, I've had random people commenting
on my collection, both positive and negative comments. It has
definitely had an impact on my focus and general goals for my
Zelda collection. And I think this site is reflecting a lot of
it as well;
Majoraís Mask. ďShe even has good taste; her favorite
game is Majoraís Mask.Ē
MM has always been my favorite, and always will be. I feel like
this is the game you either love or hate though, as itís just so
different from the other ones. But as a horror-fan, I love every
little creepy detail in that game, and thatís just how it is.
Agree or disagree, thatís ok, it's just a matter of taste and
The games. ďI bet she never even played any of the
Iím female? Is that still a thing in 2018? Well, I canít say
that Iíve beaten ALL Zelda games, because I havenít. And also if
I did, I canít prove it, because I didnít take any screenshots
or pictures when I was playing through them many years ago. So
another goal this year was to start a playthrough of all of them
while documenting it, starting with The Legend of Zelda from
1986. And I also wanted to do a 100% completion as I love
collecting things. So this site is now much more focused on the
actual games and my achievements in them.
Quality vs Quantity.
So, there were
a lot of comments about what my collection was actually
consisting of. Hardcore collectors could easily see my rare
items, while others just saw a bunch of random toys and
worthless plastic. Some said the record was not impressive
because it could easily be beaten if you have a lot of money (which
is true), while others argued itís not that easy because it
takes a lot of time and effort to actually find some of these
items. ďThe point he is making is that with a lot of money,
you could easily use the internet to probably get pretty close
to her total number. Time and luck factor into it, but the
internet has made amassing collections far easier than in the
old days. It doesn't take away from the impressiveness of her
collection, it's just stating the collectors typically out due
each other every couple of months, and the record will most
likely change hands numerous times over the years as opposed to
a physical feat record.Ē Either way, this discussion has
definitely made me focus even more on rare items, and also made
me wanting to sell off 20-30% of everything I have now that I
already got the record for largest collection.
A catalog for Zelda merchandise. ďWow, she has like
every Zelda item that was ever released..Ē
Uhm, no, heh..
Not even close. But at some point back in 2010, I was actually
thinking about trying to get everything that excisted. Can you
believe that? That was an actual idea and possibility in my head
back then. So what happened? Well.. Bioworld, Jakks Pacific etc.
started producing hundreds of new items, and today thereís just
so much out there that Iím having trouble just saving pictures
on my computer of it all. So that was a new idea for this site;
try to make a picture-database of EVERYTHING that exist, or as
close to it as possible. And thatís difficult enough.
