Samus Aran (Metroid) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:45365
Name:Samus Aran
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Metroid
Creator:Jin Saotome  
Date Added:December 19, 2012
Base Figure:Figma Samus
Height:6.00 inches
Here's my modded Samus Aran of Metroid Figma. It's the same as the Figma release except for black panel lining and a slightly different shading. The original figure was sadly lacking in paint apps and this really brings out the detail. She needed one other thing, a human Samus head! Her head was made from a ML Black Widow with sculpted sideburns and ponytail. I also gave her an Ice Beam blast made from various accessory parts.

Man, the original was amazing, but you managed somehow to make it look fantastic. Great job ! I particularly like the new accessories you made for her gun, they look almost better than the official !

I had thought about getting a "naked" head for my Samus too, and I was thinking about using the DC Direct Armory Nightwing's alt head. Which is just a more serious DC Direct Crisis Powergirl head.
That head has a whole "Other M Samus" look I really dig. Though you'd have to mod her hair.
I just don't know if it would be size-adapted since I don't have the Powergirl nor the Nightwing.

Thanks everyone! It's not hard to add the black line detailing and makes the figure that much better. The head may be a chore to do since the neck peg is a ball underneath. I had to modify Widow's head solid to the upper neck joint and just have the lower one a ball.

So very excellent. I remember how suprised I was to find that Samus was a girl. After that, if a 7 year old old kid could have a schoolyard crush on a 16bit video game character, Samus was mine, heh.

Great work with the alt. head John.
