Figma is a Japanese action figure line produced by Good Smile Company, which has released three figures based on Samus Aran. Other Samus figures have been produced by First 4 Figures, Yujin, JoyRide Studios and Jakks Pacific. Samus also has three amiibo.

Varia Suit and Zero Suit (Metroid: Other M)[]

A figure of the Varia Suit as it appears in Metroid: Other M was released in conjunction with Max Factory's other Zero Suit Samus statue (with a Metroid). An action figure of the same Zero Suit model previously released as a statue was teased at Winter Wonder Festival 2014. [1] A prototype version of the figure was finally shown at Winter Wonder Festival 2016.[2] It was finally released in early 2017. The figures are the most elaborate of the produced Samus figures to date as it features a multitude of accessories. Samus' left hand is interchangeable and can be a clenched fist, relaxed hand, giving a thumbs up and with the fingers spread. The Morph Ball, a posing stand, Arm Cannon tip with Missiles or beams equipped and two Beam shots, a single and double shot, are other accessories. The Zero Suit figure features the Paralyzer, Adam's helmet, interchangable hands and faces and a swappable head of the younger Samus with shorter hair and an earpiece. Both figures are very poseable.

The Varia Suit figure appears on display in "Nintendo Minute Debate - Super Metroid vs. Metroid Prime", an episode of Nintendo Minute; at one point in the episode, it gets knocked over. The Figma is also used for Samus, instead of a stopmotion clay figure, in "The Smashing Games" sketch that aired as part of Robot Chicken in 2019. The Varia Suit figure is among Masahiro Sakurai's collection of figurines, which he keeps at his office desk as a reference for character designs in the Super Smash Bros. series.[3]

Varia Suit (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption)[]

At the 2016 Winter Wonder Festival, another Varia Suit figure was teased, this time based on its appearance in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (as well as Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime Hunters and Metroid Prime: Federation Force). [4] Preorders for the figure began on April 18th, 2017.[5] This figure features a Morph Ball accessory and a changable Missile hatch on the Arm Cannon. Beginning from January 12, 2018, the Figma became available at Nintendo New York for $79.99 USD + tax.[6][7]

The Figma will was reissued in January 2020.[8]
