If amiibo have taught us anything, Nintendo fans love to have miniature versions of their favorite characters. There’s something remarkably endearing about holding a piece of your childhood in the palm of your hand. But everyone has to put the toys aside and grow up sometime, right? WRONG! That’s where Figma comes in. The Figma series has been at the forefront of high quality Japanese figures for years and it’s one of the most trusted names among toys in the business. The department Figma really shines in is quality. They’re beautifully detailed and nearly every inch of them gives owners something new to discover in art and gaming.
The Good Smile Company, the creator of Figma, has created a handful of Nintendo themed figures over the last year and currently offers three of them for sale online: Zelda’s Link, Samus from the Metroid series and Lucina from Fire Emblem.
Link has always been a favorite of Nintendo fans. Few video game characters can survive nearly 30 years and still look good– and play so good! This Link figure is based off of the hero from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and comes equipped with interchangeable faces, a shield, and of course, the legendary Master Sword.
Fans of amiibo will know just how popular Lucina from the Fire Emblem Series is. If you thought her amiibo was detailed, wait until you see her Figma! This figure comes with an interchangeable face, sword and mask. Due to the limited run of this figure however, Lucina will set you back nearly $100, so this figure is reserved for those who have been extra nice this year.
Samus of Metroid fame needs little introduction. This bounty hunter is a fan favorite of the Super Smash Bros. series and has graced nearly every Nintendo platform from the NES to the Wii U. The Samus Figma comes with several beams for her signature arm cannon and, most importantly, a Morph Ball to infiltrate even the tightest of spaces.
These figures are stunning, precise in design and posable– all qualities that make them ready to grace your home or workspace. Figmas are sure to make any Nintendo fan weep with joy this holiday season!Leave a Comment
