Expensive-but-fantastic statue maker First 4 Figures has shared an unboxing video of its delightful Varia Suit Samus figure.
Available as a standard edition or a super fancy Exclusive edition that includes LED lights, the figure has entered its 'last chance to pre-order' stage on First 4 Figures' website. The standard model costs US$533.99, with the Exclusive model setting you back US$587.99.
The figure shows Samus in her Varia Suit as it was seen in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes:
First 4 Figures is proud to showcase Samus in the Varia Suit. Instantly recognisable from games as far back as the original Metroid game on the NES, the Varia Suit has remained a series mainstay, and is here depicted as it was seen during Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Captured in a stunning ¼ scale in hand painted polystone, Samus measures an awesome 20 inches tall, standing upon a base inspired by the series insignia.
It's actually the second in the company's series of Metroid Master Arts statues; a few years ago, fans were also treated to an equally delicious Light Suit variant.
Watching that unboxing video, we were already getting excited just seeing that Metroid logo base. It's not easy to justify spending that kind of cash, but these figures sure are wonderful.

I want this, but my money... =(
I can't justify the price, although it certainly looks well made.
@MS7000 Agreed, it looks amazing but that's way too expensive for a decorative piece that just collects dust.
Looks cool, but that price.. nope.
For that money you all can buy a real girl for the same amount of time you would enjoy that statue.
Agree with all of you. I would have spent 200 euro’s on it, but this price is absolutely too high for me to justify.
It's beautiful. It's amazing. It's unaffordable...
I saw the words Metroid, Prime, and 4 in the article. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be...
It just blows my mind that some people have the money to buy things like this without hesitation. I'm waiting for delivery of Gamera and Kong figures that I ordered recently, cost me $50 total and I feel bad about exceeding my monthly budget for frivolities. But there are people who see this article and go "that looks nice, I think I'll buy two so I can keep one mint in the box".
Oh it is pretty but I still prefer the light suit.
I've always loved how the Varia suit looks in MP2. This figure is perfect.
Too bad I'll never own it...
So awesome but too much expensive!
That's amazing. if they did a light-up version of the Gravity Suit from MP2, I might actually be tempted to drop money on that...t
Nice but ultimately a complete waste of money for an ornament to gather dust
She is gorgeous I treated my self for my 30th birthday and she stands next to my tv proud in my frontroom
I actually collect F4F figures and I understand from a non statue collector the price seems scary, but until you see one in person its hard to understand. It isnt just a cool figure, it is pure art in a game room.
@nkarafo @Rodan2000 Very true but I saw a documentary on Netflix that talked about how there's a HUGE market for these ridiculously overpriced figurines. Mainly especially in the 30-40 year old demographic because that generation refuses to let go of the "baby blanket" and have to collect anything from the childhood. Apparently its easy money so these companies just keep pumping out and hiking up these "limited edition" overpriced dust collectors and that demographic just dives for them like flies to a pile of sh*t.
This looks dope. If I can find the space and money for it, I'll pick up the LED version.
@TipsySonic yeah i just ordered the exclusive version i cant wait to get mine
@Hen1roc you will be happy it's beautiful and looks a lot bigger in person
@RustedHero How old are you. I feel you must be a young lad because when you grow up its going to be the same for you just wait and see young grass hopper.
I kinda want to buy one. But my budget is wrecked for the month and my points haven’t posted for my last two statues yet. Plus no clue where it would go. I buy statues as they are art pieces for a medium I have interest in.
@Hen1roc I'm 36 so I'm in that range of not "old" but also not young grass hopper. In my 20's I did purchase expensive dust collector items like this. Not a lot but some (like Star Wars replica lightsabers, ships, Aliens M41A Pulse Rifle replica, etc.) When I got into the 30's I realized they served their purpose and generally don't mean anything to me as they once did and are now dust magnets. I pretty much either sold, gave away or straight up tossed everything like that except one. I have a Slash (rock guitar player not the TMNT character) overpriced figurine I keep and occasionally dust off. I will never throw anything Rock n' Roll away!
I bought their figurine of the King of Red Lions a while back. Similar price range (I think mine was $450, plus shipping). The way they have it laid out with payment plans it makes it super easy to buy if you're willing to budget, and they hold their value incredibly well. My statue is already worth close to $700 by itself. I have a statue of Toothless from Sideshow Collectibles that I bought for $250, and it's already worth close to $2,000. So they can be a really fun way to invest too!
Neat, but Figma Samus is a better deal.
