Now you can own an inspired replica of the shield from your favorite anime video game series!
Spectacular Piece! It looks just like it came out of the game into your hand, honestly. It's sturdy, stunning, and affordable.<br /><br />The paint is a little bit off in some places, but only if you -really- look at it, and it's hand painted, so you can't really complain. The strap to hold your forearm is velcro, and it's a bit uncomfortable, but it's easily replaceable if you want to hold the shield comfortably, and the handle is great.<br /><br />The price is amazing for the quality - this shield looks spot on, and it demands attention. It's lightweight, likely either wood or fiberglass, so you can hold it for cosplay or light use. Don't use it for hard contact, you might break it!<br /><br />All in all, a fantastic iconic piece that any Zelda fan should have, and Trueswords's service is once again fantastic.<br /><br />...What are you waiting for?
This thing has some weight to it, but it is still cool as all hell. It is sturdy and great to look at. Great piece for the man cave.<br /><br />Most of all, I would like to thank True Swords for being a honest seller, unlike some other sites. Where you place a order and never get your items.
I had originally purchased this as a Christmas gift to a friend, along with the Master Sword replica from Trueswords as well. The Master Sword was perfect and looked amazing, however during shipping, the shield was damaged. I contacted Trueswords to find out how to receive a replacement, and got a reply much quicker than I had expected. Long story short, Evan Johnson, the person helping me through email, was with me every step of the way. They sent me a brand new shield that was packaged amazingly well and was not damaged in any way. The new shield's paint job was quite a bit better, and there were no dents or cracks in the shield from shipping. The shield looks amazing, and is a very decent weight (Not to light that it feels really cheap, and not too heavy that it'd be impossible to hold for an extended time) So to Evan Johnson, thank you so much for all the help and great customer service. To Trueswords.com, I've never purchased replica swords or sword-type products from any other website before, but because of this event, I know I never will. Trueswords.com is definitely where I'll be spending my money any time I'm looking for a new sword display.
I surprised my son with the awesome ZELDA SHIELD. This shield has great color that's hand painted. It feels well built would be fun in battle. My son is the ZELDA MASTER of the block. He and all of this friends think that this shield is the best out their. But I have one negative it's that no instruction were sent with the shield. One of the handles had screws so that was easy but, the other well not so sure? My son who is 14 was able to figure it out way to go kid. We would recommend the ZELDA SHIELD for your next battle or wall dÃ©cor. Thank U
The fist thing you will notice out of the box is the smell but this will disappear. It has a nice weight to it, not to heavy. the handles on the back may be a little cheap but they work well. The paint was off in a couple spots but with the Master Sword behind it it looks great on the wall.
To start off, I would like to thank True Swords for their unbelievable customer service. It is unlikely that you will ever experience such unparalleled help from a company. Never in my life has a company -called me personally- to see if they could make my purchase experience better. I love this website and will continue, happily doing business with them.<br /><br />Now, for the item, it's overall a beautiful representation of the shield from the video games. I have a shirt that shows the shield, and if you compare the two, it's mind-blowing. I have, sort of a Zelda merchandise shrine, and this physical representation, makes it look legendary. The handle, is decent, but not the greatest. This is obviously for display, but, you can put the handle on, and wield the shield pretty nicely.<br /><br />If True Sword's customer service philosophy was adopted by more companies, the world would be a -much- better place. I cannot wait for my next purchase with True Swords.
I ordered this shield to go with my Halloween, and hopefully comic con, Link costume. I read the reviews on here and heard a lot of talk about it smelling bad, and the paint being chipped and stuff. Well, when I got it, around 4 days after ordering (there was a Sunday in there, when mail isn't delivered) I was too excited. I unboxed it today, and was so excited to see that it looks like it does in the picture, no flaws. Everything is great. The smell, only for a few minutes will it be there, mine faded. And I'm not exactly sure how often people will hold it up to their noses and smell it anyways. I will surely be ordering more from True Swords!
a nice shield only problem was the paint was chipped and the yellow of the triforce has silver painted on it.
The shield is just great every thing the picture shows but my only problem is the chain. The chain broke the second i lifted the shield up by it but other than the chain it is worth every penny if your a major nerd like me.
I could not be happier, i waited 4 days (no mail on Sunday ___) and it just arrived. this is for a photo shoot of Link I am doing, and this shield is PERFECT. If you've ever been a fan of the LoZ Series, my advice is to buy this shield immediately!
totally awesome, i read a few reviews while waiting for mine to arrive, and i must say the smell is noteworthy, but goes away rather quickly. my velcro straps had an error in the sewing as i believe was mentioned in a review as well,but i undid it and fixed it and sewed it back up. i am going to have to remove the brackets for the strap and handle and switch them for i am left handed but this will be easily done with the help of some strong glue, gorilla glue is on my mind... absolutely worth every penny, it is jaw dropping to look at.
The reason its left handed is because of a) twilight princess he wore it on the left B) ALOT of righties
When I got this shield I was so Happy. The paint is great and it was much bigger then I thought it was going to be. The only thing I have against is that it is just made to wear on the left arm. I only kind of wish that you could switch the handle so you could wear the shield on your right arm. Other than that, Great job. Time to fight crime.
dude sik dis shield is f in beautiful guud job true sword A++ cant wait 2 buy more stuff from u guys<br /><br /><br />-TEAM D.A.R.K.
I was surprised by the size and weight of the shield, minor nicks and scratches in shipping but still a 5 outa 5
I received this today and all I can say is wow, the paint job is awesome and it's weighted perfectly. Good job True Swords
This is by far one of the most beautiful and accurate videogame reproduction peices iv ever seen. Its the right size, solid, has a good weight to it, and flawless in the design and paint. theres only a few hardly noticable diffrences in this shield and the twilight princess shield (mainly the body of the bird) but even these small diffrences dont detract from it. its a little unbalanced, when your holding it you have to struggle a tiny bit to keep it straight, but its not to bad. the biggest problem i have with it is that the arm strap doesnt stay on. the hook method just isnt working, becuase every time you set it down they fall out. but i remidied it with a pair of pliers and squeezed the hooks shut a little more so there not loose. the shipping on this product blew me away. it was scheduled to come in thursday at 4:30, but it came wednesday at noon. to sum it all up theres a few little things i would change but overall its an amazing replica.
I simply couldn't resist this beauty.<br /><br />Well, the picture pretty much shows you what to expect. It does look a little like a toy, but that is really unavoidable thanks to the design. The paint job is imperfect when closely examined, but looks fine otherwise. It is larger than I expected, and certainly feels like a real shield. The only problem is that the velcro straps on mine were worthless (one of them was backwards, making a strong attachment impossible) and I had to replace it with an all purpose nylon strap which solved the problem for under $2.00.<br /><br />I won't tell you to buy it, because it is definitely a lot of money for something so frivolous, but what I will say is that I love it, and that it is everything it promises to be. If you love Zelda, you will love it. If you aren't into Zelda, well, you probably aren't reading this and would never consider paying that kind of money for a cartoony shield like this one.
The shield is WAY bigger than I thought it was going to be. Its an awsome shield in every way. The only problem I had was trying to get the arm strap on, but that was nothing big. All in all it is amazing!
An amazing replica of the shield from the game. I pulled this out of the box, and at at that moment my friends were offering me money for it. But I still said GTFO! Looks amazing on my wall, along with the sword they also sell here. I just wish it were made out of metal! Overall 5/5, BUY IT!
All I can say is wow. I just took my shield out of the box and I was very surprised by how big it was. As far as the detail goes, it is absolutely stunning. The only qualms I have are that the arm strap does not securely attach to the shield back. Even so, I highly recommend this for any avid Legend of Zelda collector.
Looks good the arm strap and handle are annoying to put in but it hangs on the wall anyway have master sword to go with it together they look good. Doesn't have a steel look I was hoping for but I like it.
Overall this shield is an amazing piece of work, nice paint and a good solid feel to it's construction. I got this for my sister's boyfriend as a Christmas gift but unfortunately the packing it came in was trashed. I had to open up the actual package to make sure everything was okay with the shield. Took me a while to find a piece of the handle because it had fallen out of the shield's box and into the packaging without me noticing. Overall this is a great piece for any Link or Legend of Zelda fan, and I am hoping that the absolutely terrible state of the package was from the postal worker not from someone at Budk cause I love you guys.
The shield looks pretty much as pictured, about 2ft in height and about 16in wide. The passing job is just above okay, might need some touching up. It smells terrible, mine smelt like hydrogen peroxide. <br /><br />It was tough getting the handle in, had to unscrew the parts to put the handle in. I can't get the strap to stay, it always falls out (just hooks holding it in place basically), I'll have to try and fix that somehow.<br /><br />Overall, it's a nice shield with a few small imperfections.<br /><br />See mine on instagram, look me up: Leo_Ascendent
this shield is amazing aside from the minor paint smudges on the front and back, you cant even really tell unless you stand directly in front of it with your face extremely close to touching it. its not metal but of course i didnt expect it to be anyway, im still very happy with it ether way<br />all in all its a great buy but if you do buy it for the love of god dont actually use this shield, its not made for it.
Paint job wasn't perfect and the arm band used to hold it kind of digs into your arm, but it's still a cool product.
It is not quite as rounded as it looks in the picture, but the paint job on mine is fairly well done (a few bubbles and chips, but what can you expect?), and the construction is solid. The thing that bothers me about it is the hardware and fittings on the back. They are screwed on tightly, but still seem slapped-on and I worry about them breaking when I use it. The metal grates that the arm strap hooks into are soft metal and soon bent from the weight of the shield, but look like they could be replaced by someone industrious. Plan on replacing the provided velcro arm strap if you're buying it for costume use. Oh, and it smells strongly of fiberglass and paint, but that will fade. Overall, accurate OoT Hylian Shield that will make any fan-boy (or in my case, fan-girl) squeal with delight.
Overall, I am quite happy with this shield. It is very solid, and much larger than i expected, though I recommend having a plan for replacing the stock handles if you plan on actually carrying it around.
Nice shield, larger than I expeceted it to be. The only problem I have is that I didn't recive the straps that is shown on the back of the shield.
Well, I must say that I was imprerssed by how quickly it came obviously. Because I'm making a Link costume, the shield is pivital. The paintjob on it is good though there are a few imperfections. The size is perfect and I though it would weigh more (from my previous fiberglass experience). My only gripe is that I wish it was able to be born on the right arm and not the left, but I guess I can let accuracy on arm placement slide.
It arrived with some gunk on the paint, and the paint job itself isn't the best, but it's the only full size Hylian shield available, and it looks pretty good since I cleaned off the gunk.
The front is nice but the back should be made of wood like in the games, the blue back makes it look cheap. BUT ITS STILL PRETTY SWEET!
It came really quickly actually. Shield is solid, painted well. It smelled like soap or something though which was kinda weird and it was also very dusty. My only qualm besides those is that it's inaccurate... the handle is on the right side of the shield so it has to be worn on the left hand. Link was a lefty though, and therefore kept his shield on his right hand. It's nice and really big too. The design isn't perfect, but it's the closest thing I've seen and it's pretty nice.
We won't be able to ship this item until we receive more stock. But don't worry, we've found a similar item that's ready to ship now.
