Every true Nintendo fan has at some point imagined how awesome it would be to own their very own Legend of Zelda Hylian shield - but these guys made it a reality. And I'm not talking about a crappy plastic knock-off, I'm talking about a bonafide, blacksmith-forged, iron-plated shield of total badassery!
