here’s samus!!!! its about damn time she got a new figure! the last time she was in plastic form was early 2000 by a company called joyride.
wasn’t TOO bad. but by today’s standards, this shit is horrible. lol. im so glad figma picked up the figure, she’s so cool. having this figure brings back so many memories!
articulation - the articulation is great, samus has articulation everywhere! her head doesn’t turn a full 360 degrees due to the sculpting. she does lack a bicep swivel but the ball joint comes out further under the huge shoulder pads so the she can still turn her arm. i did notice that she sorta has a thigh swivel too, but her leg popped off! but some of the joints are well hidden under the sculpting so its hard to tell. but the figure can still be posed in a variety of ways!
paint - the paint apps are great. probably one if the best figmas ive seen. very video game accurate. the paint job is very clean, you can tell alot of care was put into this figure!
detail and sculpt - so much detail in the paneling and lines all over this figure. i do like how some of the paneling on her shoulder pads ar thick so you can actually see it better.
accessories - samus comes with some alternate hands, beam effect parts, alternate gun tip and morph ball. standard figma stand included! its awesome how she comes with two types of beam effect parts for making some great ‘action’ shots!
it would have been nice if she came with an alternate head just like the old joyride figure!
^ hnnnggg. dat morph ball. (honestly i hated the morph ball when i was younger…lol.)
price - got her on BBTS for about $65. she was on preorder for about $50 now but you’ll have to wait til christmas! *hint hint* so go get her!!!!
paying that much for her and comparing her to other figmas, who all come with alternate faces, it really would have been nice if samus came with an unmasked head.
overall, samus is a great figure to have for any video game fan old or young. this is an excellent rendition of the character. a bit much for what im use to getting for other figures with no alternate head but ill deal.
figma samus aran action figure: A-
