Samus And Link Figma Figurines Headed To U.S. This Fall

By Ishaan . May 25, 2013 . 10:30am

Last year, Max Factory released Figma figurines of Link, Samus and Pit in Japan, which sold out relatively quickly. Now, it looks like the Link and Samus figures are making their way over to the U.S., as a store named Big Bad Toy Store lists both of them along with the following message:

 

Great News! We have just confirmed that the licensing issue that previously caused this item not to be released in the USA has been worked out. A new production run will be made and release is confirmed for the 4th Quarter 2013!

 

The Link figurine can be pre-ordered here, while Samus can be found here. Both figures cost $50 each. In addition to the two Figmas, the PVC statue of Samus in her Zero Suit is listed as well, can be found here for $100.

 

Pit, however, may not be coming over any time soon, as the Big Bad Toy Store only lists an import version of the Pit Figma, with no listing for a U.S. release.

    Jumped on the suited up Samus figma more or less as soon as these opened, because hell if I’m missing that wonderful thing again.

  • VietKnight

    Also Gamestop is taking orders on Link Skyward Sword Figma, Metroid Samus Aran normal and zero suit version.

  • Scissors

    Yeah that’s a rip, $30 from Japan $50 here. Still sticking to importing especially now that Yen and USD are roughly 1 to 1. $30

    On a side note I couldn’t deposit my money in time to the bank to pay for my pre-order Samus when she first came out and she was sold out everywhere. I had to have her so I sucked it up and bought her for $80 from a site which was the cheapest I found. This stings now that she’s reprinted, figmas rarely ever get re-printed. For all you that missed these the first time get them now so you don’t have to pay double like I did.

    That looks like a drawing not a toy.

  • Tom

    They should do more reissue of figures. I missed the MGS1 Solid Snake now it’s over $300…

    • VietKnight

      I found that a lot of stuff I ordered became discontinued and a put it back in the box after having it out for a year since it was too hard to maintain.

  • Blesmi

    Haha oh man you know it is sad when it’s cheaper to get these on amiami than a US store. Including shipping.

  • ギャビン

    You can get the re-release cheaper from japan this September.

    • Testsubject909

      70$ if anyone was wondering.

      • D-Rev

        Or 30 + Shipping from AmiAmi

  • Solomon_Kano

    Samus will be MINE.

    • Testsubject909

      (Edit: Whoops… Should’ve checked the links. The Zero Suit Samus mentioned in the article is the same one I purchased in the past)

      I already have my own Samus.

      Here. This is the (Zero Suit) Samus I bought a long long time ago.

      And apparently they’re going to have a restock in September.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Never really cared for her Zero Suit look, but it’s a nice figma.

        • puchinri

          It’s a kind of cool look, but I just dig her other suits more as well.

          • Solomon_Kano

            I had a feeling you might like her other suit better, but I’m not sure why. Guess I just have knack for looking at avatars figuring people out lol.

          • puchinri

            Haha, I actually changed it to this because of the link someone shared with this among them. I felt like it was too perfect a picture to pass up. Also, playing Prime Trilogy so much lately probably doesn’t hurt my preference/bias.

            Zero Suit is pretty bamf and sexy, but those giant shoulder pads do reel me and my boyfriend in.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Those shoulders are godly lol. I really like the suit’s color palette, too.

          • puchinri

            I do too! It’s just perfect and striking.

      • wahyudil

        too bad this is not figma … I don’t mind a figma samus zero suit …

        now I can’t wait for Marth Figma next year …

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Samus! ;-; Ugh expensive. *goes to play Super Metroid*

  • Quinton Rivera

    I’ll bite the bullet and buy the US releases, so companies know that we DO want these things officially released here.

    Surely this won’t be the only place selling them though.

    • StarWarudo

      You could try anime-island.com . They’re a pretty reliable site.

  • Testsubject909

    Oh hey. I should’ve paid more attention.

    So they’re re-releasing the Zero Suit Samus figurine huh?

    Well. I already have mine from when it was first released.

  • puchinri

    That’s a shame on the Pit figure, but I am eyeing that Samus. It looks glorious.
    Between this and the Sailor Moon figure coming here later this year, I don’t know what I’m going to do.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      get both

      • puchinri

        Oh, definitely, haha. I guess I did leave that kind of vague. I mean, I will get Sailor Moon no matter what, and I’m already quited swayed by Samus, but I just don’t know what money I’ll have to live off of I mean. x’D

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    soon………Sailor Moon and Samus will be in odd pictures with your old pal Woody http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/342/e/c/cowboy_woody_by_theonecam-d34gkk4.jpg

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        no one is safe

    I want these for my birthday along with Sailor Moon. Related Topic–Nicholas D. Wolfwood figma, I most definitely want that for my birthday =) .

  • wahyudil
