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.

Metroid First 4 Figures

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.
