2012 is going to be an exciting year for us. We let the cat out of the bag with the pair of new Metroid releases, Max Factory bringing us a figma of Samus Aran in the Other M armor while Good Smile is putting their sculptors to work with a 1/6 PVC release of Samus in her Zero Suit armor. Thankfully, they are more than just speculation and behind the wall of no photos, as they will come to us in 2012.

Let's talk the PVC first as this actually has a firm date! Zero Suit Samus will be coming to us in June of 2012. While she doesn't have a price, I doubt that it will matter to most people. The pose is striking and works really well for PVC. However, I would like to see her pointing that gun instead of just casually holding it at her side.

As for the figma, it has a date of 2012, so your guess is as good as mine as to when it would actually be released. Let's be a bit positive though and say what we'd like to have. I'm good with the paint job, but I would love an alternate head sans helmet. I'm sure that you guys can think up some more things you'd like to see, so leave those ideas in the comments.
