Gravity Suit Samus Resin Kit Inspires Longing for a ‘Metroid’ Comic
Judging from the successes of “Halo,” “Mass Effect” and other sci-fi shooters staring armored protagonists battling aliens, the comic book market seems loooong overdue for a “Metroid” series. The always fierce Samus Aran has enjoyed a few notable comic book and manga appearances in the past — “Adventures of Super Mario Bros.” and “Nintendo Power” stories chief among them — but she certainly deserves an ongoing title of her own, doesn’t she, Nintendo licensing department?
While a Samus-starring book might be far off in the future, an absolutely awesome Samus action figure isn’t. Dimension Diver is offering a tremendous looking Gravity Suit Samus toy as one of its exclusives for Wonder Festival 2010 later this month, with the figure on sale for roughly $120. Sure, it’s more than a little steep for one action figure, but the price tag is worth it if you’re into the “Metroid” brand and awesome toys.
