Inspired by her design in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.

A new statue based on the Varia Suit Samus model from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes is now available for pre-order from First 4 Figures. Two versions of the 1/4 scale statue are being produced.

Both versions are 20 inches tall and have Samus standing on the S logo from the series. The Exclusive version, only available from the First 4 Figures website, has many LEDs built into the figure to give it an authentic from the game look and costs $429.99. The standard version of the statue lacks the LEDs found in the exclusive version and costs $384.99. Both statues will have their edition size determined in two weeks and are scheduled to ship in Q1 2017. Those interested should get their pre-orders in now for low numbers and to guarantee availability.

If you're looking for a discount then you can take advantage of two different coupon codes. The code VARIAEX30 will take $30 off the price of the Exclusive version, and the code VARIAREG20 will knock $20 off the price of the standard statue.

Varia Suit Samus is the second in the Metroid Prime 1/4 scale line and will go nicely with the previously released Light Suit Samus statue. People who have been fans of First 4 Figures for a long time will notice that they released a smaller scale Metroid Prime version of Varia Suit Samus back in 2007.

Man this thing is sooooooooooooo nice! My Light Suit Samus just came in last week and it is absolutely beautiful!

I suppose they will do the Prime 3 PDF(?) Suit next. PD something. I'll pass on that one, didn't like it in game so I certainly won't be buying a statue of it. Everything they've done so far has been based on Metroid Prime, as a matter of fact I think when it was originally announced that they got the license it was purely for things only Metroid Prime related. Today though they don't make that distinction and just use the term Metroid so I am hoping to high heaven that eventually we get Fusion Suit Samus.

Wait, As we know her today with Smash design where did Zero Suit Samus debut? Because First4Figures made a pretty ugly version of her and I don't think she ever appeared like that in the Prime series. In all the endings I remember her taking off the helmet and... Oh she did in Prime 2 or 3 didn't she?

Having this 1/4 scale Varia Suit lined up with the Light and Fusion suits of the same scale will be so awesome! Once I get that and Ridley I will be set for life on Metroid statues. But knowing them and me I will buy their awesome classic Ridley and Meta Ridley, only if they have very different poses though.

0_O At the price, but to be fair, you get what you pay for.

I'll have to stick to my World of Nintendo figures. hehe
