Samus Aran Metroid PVC Figure from Max Factory

Samus Aran サムス・アラン Samusu Aran, lead character from Nintendo's legendary  "Metroid" video game series.

Samus ranks alongside Chun Li as one of the earliest female protagonists depicted in a video game.  Orphaned at a young age, Samus was brought up by the extraterrestrial avianoid Chozo race, who trained her as a capable warrior.  Following a stint as a Galactic Federation soldier Samus devoted her career to bounty hunting. 

The 1/8th scale (Height: approx. 220cm), Max Factory sculpture is based on her portrayal in the 2010 game "Metroid: Other M." where in cut scenes she is seen sporting her "Zero Suit", a form-fitting jumpsuit which is worn beneath her Power Suit. The figure comes with gun and the baby Metroid.
