Want: Upcoming Link And Samus Aran Action Figures

February 14, 2012


Spotted at a recent toy fair or something (I'm a great reporter) these Max Factory/Figma action figures are scheduled for release later this year. There will be a non-poseable Samus Aran Zero Suit model, a fully poseable Samus Aran in her regular armor, and a fully poseable Link. I assume the finished Link will have a coat of paint on him as well. But if he doesn't I'll just paint him myself -- I don't care! I haven't been this excited to see an action figure since the doctor pulled He-Man out of my ass.

Hit the jump for more including a bunch showing off Samus' poseability.

Thanks to Wilmersama, who agrees non-poseable action figures should be sold as inaction figures.

    non-poseable zero suit samus...someone doesn't know their market

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Mmm... zero suit Samus...

    I don't know that I've ever noticed Miss Aran with hips that wide, but I'm okay with it... I'm also glad they didn't find it necessary to give her ridiculous Lara Croft-sized breasts.

    ...not that there's anything wrong with those! ;)

  • they really aren't that big, you must not be very used to breasts

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Well... I guess it depends on which version of Lara Croft.  I seem to remember the pre-rendered version of Lara from artwork and advertisements for the first 3 games had ridiculously large breasts that would be statistically unlikely for a woman of that build.

    If anything I would say it's just as likely that you're either not used to skinny women or real breasts... one or the other.

  • Does anyone know the best site to pre-order?

     http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/1... you can pre-order (in suit/zero suit) here. but Link is still a prototype so hopefully we'll see that one soon :o

    Shut up and take my money!

  • You don't saaaaay!!!

  • Max Florschutz

    Power suit Samus FtW!

    Also, I find it hilarious that the Zero Suit model doesn't even have the same proportions as the Power Suit model. Come on guys, really?

  • I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing is happening!!

  • i want so bad..

  • Clarissa Helps

    Wow, looks good. I really want the Link one. Also that stand that lets you pose action figures dynamically. I want that thing!

  • I can has?

  • Also, I swear to god I'm going to get that regular-suit samus.
