The lovely folks at Geeks Are Sexy are great at spotting (or in this case, receiving from rad readers) cool stuff I want to throw my money at. The latest in such things is this adorable handmade Samus mini amigurumi (4 inches tall!) created by Etsy seller PixelBlock. And she's only US$25. At the time of writing, eight are still available for purchase.
For those of us that lack either the skills or patience to crochet pretty little things like this, I think Samus would make for a cute holiday gift!
A full view of Samus is in the gallery (the header cut her up a little bit).
