Figma Samus announced; I'm EXCITED!

Post by Spastico on Sat Aug 27, 2011 11:21 am

So of the many things to be unveiled in today's C3xHobby expo in Tokyo today, along with a painted version of the prototype for Figma Guts, are Figmas of Samus Aran based on her appearance in Metroid: Other M. Not ideal but given how miserly Nintendo is with licensing rights it's probably the only time we'll get to see a decent Samus figure.

The only problem? Only photos of available are huge teases but I'm sure full shots will appear within the next few hours or days.



For those of you who aren't familiar with Figma, expect super articulation, great sculpt and paint, them being roughly 14-15cm tall and having a bunch of accessories including a stand and several extra hands. And a price tag of about $35-40 after exchange rates and shipping

And we've got full pics of the Figma, as well as the 1/8 PVC of the Zero Suit version.



I've been waiting for sooo long for a figure like this since I was never overly fond of the garage kits. Nobody else is excited?

nice, thats looking sharp indeed. Hopefully they will make some of the other suit types as well, and perhaps the blonde haired out body suit version for 'down time' Samus =-)

Well they're doing her in the Zero Suit but it's only a statue. I'm doubtful if we'll see the other suits since they probably only got the rights to make this through a licensing technicality with Team Ninja since Nintendo isn't very liberal with their merchandising rights. But it would be beyond great if we got Prime's Varia Suit.

Nintendo don't usually licence out anything other then Mario and Co. That is why there is little to nothing on Zelda or Metroid.

There has only been ever one western released Metroid figure by Joyride/GamePro Figures which was limited to about 500 and now goes for $200+. (And to think I remember seeing all the Joyride figures at Discount store when I first moved over here in the USA for around $5. It was one weird series of Figures had Sonic, Zelda, Tekken, Virtual Fighter, Monkey Ball, Crazy Taxi, C&C, Cel Dammage etc but well worth it is your into that kind of crazy stuff.)

They came in color and unpainted prototype versions if memory serves me correctly.

This line before it died one stage was rumored to looking at Killer Instinct, Nights, Castlevania, PaRappa, Sims, Twisted Metal, Turok, Max Payne, Halo, GTA3 and even B.J. Blakowitz (Wolfenstien). Because Joyride where a division of Ertl (Which also does Johnny Lightning) this is why they went on to make some car related items, which does seem odd but makes sense when you know that bit of info. They did have active contracts with EA, Sega & Nintendo. They also where looking into picking up all the Resaurus old Gaming licences when they folded (Sonic, SF, Duke Nukem). Joyride did go on to make Halo later on, before they folded. I think the GamePro Figures wheels fell off when they made figures version of some of the Editors at GamePro.
