Figma AF has teamed with Previews to bring a new, highly articulated, high-priced Samus Aran action figure! Based on her appearance in the Nintendo Switch game Metroid Dread, Samus comes with all the accessories needed to make her the centerpiece of your action figure collection. Or even your refrigerator.
Aside from coming with interchangeable hands/cannons, this Figma AF entry includes a “Spider Magnet” base that allows Samus to cling onto metal surfaces. The base is, indeed, magnetized; however, the anchor points for the figure are molded to it, limiting how you can pose Samus. Luckily, the figure is packed with a standard display base and armature, allowing you to pull off various poses while adding stability.
Now the kicker. Like most Figma AF collectibles, Samus is priced above $100. However, if you pre-order her from Previews World before November 7th, you can get her for $144.99. She’s expected to be on store shelves by December 27th, 2023.
The strongest warrior in the galaxy joins the figma series once again. From the Nintendo Switch game Metroid Dread comes a figma action figure of the main character, Samus Aran! Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can create a variety of poses from the game. A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability. In addition to Morph Ball and Omega Cannon parts, a Spider Magnet figure base that can be used to pose Samus sticking on walls is included. The Spider Magnet base is made with magnets. A gripping hand part, open hand part and multi-purpose hand part are all included. The figure’s knee joints are made with specially designed double joint parts. An articulated figma stand is included to display the figma in a variety of poses.
I’m not a fan of the color scheme Samus starts off with in Dread, but further along in the game, she does get armor that’s more in line with her classic orange getup. I hope Figma AF releases that version; then they can have my money. What do you think of the figure and price? Let us know below.[Source: Previews]
