So there have been more Samus figures in the past couple years than basically the previous 25. Even rarer than Samus has been a metroid toy. Fortunately, there's one in the World of Nintendo line now.
It's one of the deluxe figures, so it's really big. Like, probably too big to really be in scale with anything. But I'm okay with that because it's really cool looking. The only articulation is on the fangs, which is really the only articulation that would be appropriate. The outer layer is a soft, translucent plastic, while everything else is a harder plastic. I'd say this is a very nice translation of a metroid design into three dimensions. Too bad it (and Samus!) is so hard to find.
