3D Printed Legend of Zelda Board Created, Sold

The Legend of Zelda is a franchise that is hard to ignore. Even non-Nintendo fans have to acknowledge the presence of this early Nintendo franchise. Sega has tried a few times to create something that could take on the story of Link, Zelda, and Gannon; so far, after decades of trying, they have yet to succeed. Nintendo knows this, so has kept The Legend of Zelda franchise alive and kicking over the years. From the Nintendo Entertainment System to the upcoming Nintendo Switch, Zelda has been a cornerstone staple. There are fans of the series that are willing to go farther than most fans will. That is what brings us to this hand painted, 3D printed Legend of Zelda map. Yep, after the jump, folks, after the jump. (We have to pay the bills somehow and at least this is not a slide show.)

A member of the Trade Sell Collect Retro & New Video Games & Toys group on Facebook has procured this one interesting piece (pictures in the group and below). He said the buyer he got it off of stated there was over six months building this world map for the first Legend of Zelda in Minecraft. The seller then apparently exported the file and 3D printed it–I was not aware you could do that. Then after 24 hours of 3D printing going back and forth, another six hours was spent painting it. Whew.

This is one heck of a display of fandom. The level of detail is staggering: tombstones in the cemetery, forest full of trees, and ripples in the water. The detail in this piece is amazing. The seller apparently met with hard times so he had to let this beautiful piece go. The price is unknown, though, if I remember seeing another post from this person, it was stupidly low (around $100).
