About a month and a half ago I had a story on the Zant statue being finalized and today I bring you Samus’ Gunship from Metroid Prime.
This statue, just like the last, is being brought to you buy the talented people at First 4 Figures, so take a look and enjoy.

The statue is coming out in Quarter 2 of 2011 for $299.99 and is limited to 750 pieces world wide. True, for that much you can get a whole console, but this 12″ piece of art will certainly be worth it for some of you.
Here’s the top of the ship. Click here for a larger picture.

Have fun pretending you’re Samus Aran about to land on a foggy Zebes. But don’t let kids play with it! Click here for a larger picture.
Here is the official release straight from First 4 Figures:
Introducing the Metroid Prime Gunship by First 4 Figures! We are proud to be continuing our Metroid Gunship Series with the Gunship featured in Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime Hunters!
Samus Aran’s Gunship in Metroid Prime is capable of inter-galactic flight, has antigravity landing pods and is battle ready. If battle becomes unavoidable, the ship is outfitted with enough firepower to survive firefights against bigger and more numerous foes as it is equipped with twin Power Beam turrets and a retractable rear-mounted Plasma Beam cannon.
The Metroid Prime Gunship has been accurately recreated from the original game files. This allows for unprecedented levels of realism and accuracy. Internal LEDs are placed in a way that creates a stunning light effect. The windscreen, gun batteries, hull and read engines all light up. On the actual gunship, the windscreen and the four engines at the back all light up. The lights fade out slowly when you turn off the lights.
The point where the ship connects to the base has a swivel joint which lets you tilt and angle the ship to any angle that you want. Please note, you cannot rotate the model on the joint or you will damage the internal wires.
Comes in deluxe full color packaging, hand numbered base, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity which allows you to purchase the same number of the model next in the Gunship series.
This is the second in the Gunship series. If you wish to collect the same product number, you must authenticate your previous statue in the series (Metroid Prime II: Echoes Gunship).
