Ok, I'm not going to lie. I may not be any good at the Metroid games, you know, like, at all, but I still just absolutely love Samus Aran. When I was little, it was nice to have an awesome blonde girl, who was not only a freaking tough bounty hunter, but also adept and skilled in battle, and wasn't portrayed as an idiot. As a fellow blonde, it was often tough to find a character like that that doesn't have some type of dumb stereotype.
Jump to today, where now we can get our pre-orders in on not one, but two fantastic pieces relating to her. The first is a figma that shows her in her Varia Suit as what looks like the Metroid: Other M version. It's retailing for ¥3,620 and should be released in late June. The second is the 1/8th scale figure of Samus in her Zero Suit which retails for ¥7,429 and is releasing in June as well. Both look ridiculously amazing in my book, so consider them pre-ordered!
P.S. Totally just ordered mine! DOING A HAPPY DANCE!!!
