Samus here stands roughly 4 inches tall and is made of the typical plastic you find in most action figures. She sports 14 points of articulation. The head, arms, biceps, and ankles are swivel joints, with the knees, elbows, hips, and abdomen a nice ball type joint. Due to the sculpt, some of the range of motion is limited, and this is especially true in the hips. Despite this, Samus remains a very poseable figure, one which can easily be put in a wide array of poses.
The sculpt is very good. It looks like they've taken design cues from how her armor appeared in Metroid Prime, and there is a nice level of detail. The only possible complaint is the paint applications, which while effective, seem minimal on her abdomen. It also would have been nice to have a metallic sheen to this figure, but as it is, the figure looks very much like the plastic toy which it is. The figure appears a bit different from the one pictured, as Samus's head is much more nestled among her shoulder pads.
Play-wise, Samus looks like she could stand up to a fair amount of play, although if handled too rough, there might be issues with her knee and elbow joints as they appear a bit fragile. The mystery accessory Samus comes with is her ball form which she uses in the game. There's really not much to it - it's a roughly as round as a quarter, has appropriate detailing, and is made of a harder type of plastic. WARNING: If you plan on giving this to a child, the ball might pose a choking hazard.
All in all, this is probably the best figure the World of Nintendo has done to date, as it's superior to both the Link and Mario figure in my opinion. Be warned that this figure retails for about $7.99 - quite a difference in price from what most on-line sites are asking for it. There are approximately two Samus Aran's to a case, so she is fairly rare, but can be found with a bit of diligence. If you're a Metroid fan, or just a fan of Nintendo in general, I recommend this figure.
Samus stands at about 4 inches tall and rocks her Varia Suit, giving you the most well-known appearance of the character. I have zero complaints about the sculpt. One glance at this toy and you’ll recognize who it is right away! She has a surprising amount of articulation too: head, shoulders, biceps, elbows, torso, hips, knees and ankles. 14 points of articulation on this little figure! You can get her in some great poses, with my favorite being her down on one knee, left hand rested on top of her arm cannon. It looks awesome. Overall the figure feels durable, though not any better than similar toys. Be careful with the joints and it should last a long time.
The figure doesn’t have any action features or sounds or parts that light up. She does come with a “secret” accessory. When I saw this on the box, I had a good guess as to what it was, and sure enough, I was right. It’s the Morph Ball. They did a good job on the sculpt, making it look like how it does in Metroid Prime. It’s a nice little accessory to have around, and great for kids to play with so Samus can actually do her ball-thing instead of being stuck in some odd pose to try and emulate that.
And finally, don’t forget that this is a TOY. It is not meant to be just for adult collectors who want tons of articulation and for it to be 100% accurate to the game. This is a standard action figure that you’ll find in most stores next to the Star Wars and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures. They could have easily doubled the retail price (like most sellers seem to be ding) because of the lack of Metroid goods, but they didn’t. Samus costs just as much as the other standard World of Nintendo toys and that’s a great deal. You’re getting a great representation of the legend herself, with some good articulation for a very low price. I got her for my daughter for the MSRP and I feel that was a bargain. Had these toys been a few bucks more, I would’ve taken off a star.
It’s funny how I saw this in the store -the day after- I beat Super Metroid with my daughter. I’m showing her a lot of the games I played when I was younger, and she instantly fell in love with Samus and the planet Zebes. We were both excited to see a little Samus on the shelf, and didn’t hesitate to buy her soon after. I highly recommend buying this figure as soon as you can before she becomes hard to find. Apparently there are only two per case, although the couple of times I went down the toy aisle, there were a good 6-8 Samus figures on the shelves along with the others in the line.
This figure really does capture that Samus Aran look. The height, the build, and color just all perfectly come together to capture that classic Metroid look. Sure, she doesn't have a lot of articulation (shoulders for example, but look at those things), but it is still a great figure of a great character. The secret accessory I recieved is just as classic; the morphball. To this day, I have no idea how exactly the morphball works, or how she even fits into the armor, but this is a great figure for any Metroid or Nintendo fan.
