First 4 Figures, a manufacturer of licensed collectibles who have released numerous products over the years have recently announced their latest addition to their Metroid series in the form of the Metroid Prime gunship. This faithful recreation of the heroine’s gunship is 12 inches long, a swivel joint which will allow you to position and display the model in various different ways and lights up with internal LED’s that bring the whole thing to life.
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 Metroid Prime gunship is limited to just 750 pieces worldwide and has a price tag of $299.99! The model will be released in the second quarter of 2011 and is available for preorder now!
