Fans of Metroid Prime's sassy heroine (or rather its sassy heroine when her armor falls off) finally have their prayers answered - she's been made into a limited edition set of figurines.
Sporting her rather fetching "Zero Suit" as seen at the end of Metroid Prime 2 and in the brilliant Super Smash Bros Brawl trailer, she'll instantly bring some sunshine to even the dullest of bedrooms. Apparently she "comes armed with her signature pistol and has curves in all the right places!" Easy, tiger. She's made out of poly-stone too, so you can feel all space age and pretend you know what that is.
Above: The figurines are 9.5 inches high. Just move your head closer and she'll look lifesize. Maybe
There are only 2,500 of these figurines going on sale worldwide, but you can order one from creators First 4 Figures' website if you're quick. The figurines retail for $109.99, but seeing as she's replicated from the original 3D game data (with modifications from artist Jiang Di), you won't find a more authentic Samus figure this side of a TV screen.
