Samus morphs into an incredible action figure

We agree with Samus's sentiment. The new Figma Samus Aran action figure, due out in Japan this June, easily earns a rating of "thumbs up" by our standards. The 150mm (roughly 6") figure, modeled on Samus's appearance in Metroid: Other M, includes a base, two "beam effect" accessories, five alternate hands, and even a Morph Ball version of Samus.

If you have a shelf you'd like to keep Space Pirate-free, you can pre-order your own mini-Samus from toy importer AmiAmi for around $36. While you're at it, you can also pre-order this less posable, less clothed Zero Suit Samus statuette. If you're into that kinda thing, that is.
