Check out this hand retooled Link amiibo

Toby Thornton is in the business of making Nintendo's amiibo match our expectations.

"I caught the amiibo bug," Thornton wrote to us over the weekend. "So I have started Amiibo Workshop where I collect and customize amiibo. I have just finished my first custom amiibo figure."

That first creation is a complete overhaul of Link. You can see the before and after using the slider image below.

To create this one-of-a-kind Link, Thornton first removed and repositions Link's head so he was looking forward and not at his feet. Then he removed the ugly yellow support bar and customized the stand to look like something straight out of Hyrule. Of course the most noticeable bit of customization is the Hero of Time acrylic paint job.

You can pick this amiibo up on eBay where it is listed for £69.99, with the reserve not yet met.

It sounds like more custom amiibo are on their way. Until then, check out the rest of the shots of Link below.
