Just because we’re all serious about technology doesn’t mean we don’t know good toys when we see them, and any gamer/geek would love this figure of Samus Aran in her Phazon Suit from Metroid Prime sitting on their desk, glowing brightly like in the photo above.
Interested? PlayAsia has been so inundated with requests for the figure that they’re doing a second run, and one can be yours now for $200 US – the run is scheduled for November 2009, so you have plenty of time to save up for it if you need to – but I’ve seen video of the figure in action, and it’s really a sight to behold, especially with the lights off. Check out the details:
With the unique color scheme of black helmet and red visor, the Phazon Suit is awarded after defeating the Omega Pirate.
Both Samusâ€™ suit and gun are infected with pure Phazon. This gives the Phazon Suit an ability to protect Samus from the deadly effects of the deadly blue substance and shoot the Phazon Beam when standing in pools of Phazon.
Just when Metroid Prime is defeated, the Phazon Suit is stolen and used to create one of Samusâ€™ greatest enemies, Dark Samus!
First 4 Figures is extremely proud to present the ultimate version of the Samus Aran’s Phazon Suit.
First 4 Figures has used the official game files in order to create an extremely accurate recreation of the Phazon suit, with pose inspiration taken from official Metroid artwork.
Looks incredible on its own and really completes a display when put together with the Varia suit and Gravity suit statues.
We completely reengineered the original Varia suit model to make the Phazon suit by casting it entirely in transparent resin, adding over 25 LED lights through the suit and finished it off by adding a mirror base which really shows off the lights. When the lights are turned off, an internal IC chip allows for the lights to fade out slowly.
The statue is hand finished and hand painted with metallic paints to give an authentic representation of the suits. Comes packed in a foam interior full colored box with a card of authenticity.
The Phazon Suit is highly limited at just 1500 pieces worldwide.
That explains why it’s so expensive. Head over and pre-order yours today!
