If you owned a NES (Nintendo Entertainment System), Famicom (Nintendo Family Computer) or a Game Boy in ancient history, you should know and love Metroid and Samus Aran. Samus, for me, can be included as one of the notable characters in the Nintendo world along with Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda and Link.
Ever since the day I played the game, I wished for awesome Metroid/Samus figures, and I rarely see high quality ones, well, not until today. Thank God for Figma! Under Max Factory, known for creating high quality, highly articulated, detailed, and accurate action figures (same as Revoltech). You may know some of their figures mostly come from characters in Mangas and Animes.
Here are some shots of the new Metroid line from Figma from Toyark page:
WARNING: NERDGASM ALERT!
Now pull yourself together!
The Figma figures will be released in June 2012, and will cost around ¥3800 (Japanese Yen) a pop, or around $48+ USD or here in the Philippines P2000+ PHP (depending on the exchange rates).
