First 4 Figures has already made several statutes based on Samus Aran, from the Metroid series:
- Samus with the Gravity Suit
- Zero Suit Samus
- Samus Phazon Suit
And this week, the company started taking pre-orders for a fourth statue. In this one, Samus is wearing the one and only Varia Suit, which is by far the most famous and recognisable one. To be more precise, her design is based on Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. The artists for this statute are Salvador Felix and Kaushik Manna.
As usual, there are two versions of the statue:
Here’s the official description of the Limited Edition:
During her travels throughout the galaxy, Samus Aran can find and equip different suits of armour to protect her against the hostile world around her, and to grant herself numerous different abilities. Of these suits, none of these are more recognisable than the iconic Varia Suit. The Varia suit reduces the damage that Samus takes by up to half, is highly resistant to hot environments and completely nullifies the effects of acid, allowing her to walk through it without injury.
First 4 Figures is proud to showcase Samus in the Varia Suit. Instantly recognisable from games as far back as the original Metroid game on the NES, the Varia Suit has remained a series mainstay, and is here depicted as it was seen during Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Captured in a stunning ¼ scale in hand painted polystone, Samus measures an awesome 20 inches tall, standing upon a base inspired by the series insignia.
This is the exclusive version of the Varia Suit. LEDs have been integrated throughout the entire statue, bringing it to life exactly as seen in the games.
