    After making my Original Legend of Zelda Link, I decided I would make a Custom Skyward Sword.

    Same recipe as my other Link, except it is the Skyward Sword Medicom Figure

    Did you make this from scratch?
    If so, do you have pics of the process of how it was done?

    This is the process that I used to make this one and my "Classic" Link

    You will need:

    1 Amiibo (I used an Animal Crossing one as they are on clearance at Gamestop)
    1 NFC Tag coded with whatever Link you want to use (8-bit for Classic Link and Skyward Sword (SPOOFED) for Skyward Sword Link)
    1 Medicom Legend of Zelda Figure (The 3 available currently are Classic Link, Toon Link and Skyward Sword Link)
    Air Hardening Clay
    2 Small Screws
    Superglue
    Zelda Amiibo Label
    Gold Pinstripe

    The Process:
    Tear apart the Amiibo from the base and remove the Existing NFC Tag
    Put air hardening clay in the holes left on the top of the Amiibo base.
    Sand the crap out of the top of the base to make smooth
    Print out the Zelda Amiibo Label (I printed it on Sticker paper and covered the paper with Clear Shelf Liner), and attach it to the Amiibo Base top
    Take the Medicom Link and mark where the holes in his boots are on the base top and drill two holes in the base.
    Cut out any plastic on the underside of the base top to make room for the small screws
    Attach Link to the base with the screws
    Put the new NFC tag in the base
    Superglue the top back into the bottom
    Add Pinstripe to the base if you want

    It is really quite simple, and make for a custom amiibo that fits in with the real ones.

    I'd preferred this position for "Skyward Sword" amiibo

    No Sculpting is required. The Clay is only used to fill in the holes in the amiibo base.

    Nice work! I like the NES Link even better than the Skyward Sword Link.
