If you’re looking for some of the most dedicated fanbase, it’s hard to come by a more faithful following than fans of the Legend of Zelda franchise. And sometimes on the interwebs, you find one of those exceptionally well made replicas of items in game and that’s exactly what Etsy user PerfectTommyAutomail has done with the Skyward Sword Harp! The harp itself looks amazing, even though it’s made from a plastic called urethane and the strings are from twisted brass. Unfortunaltely the strings aren’t exactly playable but the workmanship and accuracy on this fanmade piece is amazing! If you’re looking into getting this, it’ll be a hefty $200 and it’ll also be made to order too.

Well it looks like George Lucas has finally jettisoned from LucasFilm after originally creating it back in 1975 and is now going to be doing some indie films out of his garage. Let’s hope we get to see some of what he makes! May the Force be with you Lucas!
