Samus and Link Figmas Get Rereleases
I got royally screwed by Entertainment Earth when they couldn’t fulfill my pre-order of the Samus Figma and decided not to tell me until months after the figure was out of production. Same for many of our readers who pre-ordered the Samus and Link figures through our links.
But it’s time to suit up for redemption. Both toys are getting rereleased this fall. They’ll run about $60 each after shipping from Japan is factored in. (The Play-Asia price for the Link figure says $140 but I’m assuming that’s a typo because the Samus and Link figures are the same price on Yes Asia.)
Hit the links below to pre-order - supplies are allegedly pretty limited.
Pre-Order: Samus Aran Figma (Re-run) or Link Figma (Re-run)

The Last Metroid is in Captivity
And yet, a bounty hunter’s life doesn’t get any easier. Samus Aran still has rival hunters and evil doppelgangers to take care of. Matt Synowicz (a.k.a. spaghetti016) has her primed and ready to redeploy to the farthest reaches of the galaxy in this illustration.

Screw Attack Samus

For the anniversary edition cover of Screw Attack drawn by Gonzalo Ordóñez Arias (a.k.a. Genzoman), it’s only fitting that it should feature Samus Aran herself, the character that’s mastered the technique that the site was named after.

8-bit Game Character Model Kits

Ty Lettau made these 8-bit model kits for classic videogame characters Mario, Link and Samus. This totally takes us back to the days of putting together plastic robots on the kitchen table, getting glue everywhere, and then finally giving up after breaking most of the pieces while trying to snap them out. Ah, childhood…
