Buichi Terasawa began his manga career in 1977 when he contributed his one-off Sci-Fi Story Cobra to Weekly Shonen Jump. The popularity of this one-off story would have it go into serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump where it ran for six years, while simultaneously being released under the Jump Comics lines


For those familiar with the recent YouTube deep dives into the influences of the Metroid franchise, by the amazing investigative work of “Critical Kate” Willært, you would know that the Sci-Fi manga Space Adventure Cobra was perhaps the most influential piece of work in the creation of the Metroid series.


From the Metroid Database, RIP Buichi Terasawa, who knows where we would be without your staggering influence, style and contributions to the Sci-Fi world. Thank you.

Today we launch two new 18×24″ (45.7cm x 61cm) prints in our store – one is the restock of our previous “The Bosses” print:

The other is called “Dreaded Hunter”:

Both pieces were drawn by long time friend of the site, Manos Lagouvardos. (Click the thumbnails above to be taken to the store page)


Thanks as always for supporting our site. I can’t wait until these incredible prints are in your hands.

This morning (5am EST) Max Factory’s promotional live stream covering their upcoming products showed off printed photos of the upcoming EMMI Figma action figure. The Figma is to scale, meaning it is much larger than the Samus Figma, which was listed at 6.29in (160mm). If my Japanese is right, the EMMI stands at well over 200mm (~8in.)


The EMMI itself has tons of moving parts, including four individual hinges for each one of its claws, extensions on its forearms and calves, foldable limbs, working leg cylinders, and replaceable heads. It’s so large that they have to package it with a custom “X” stand, which is much more sturdy than normal Figma stands.


At the end of the presentation, they very non-chalantly pull the Dread Samus Figma on-screen, and for some reason, my mouth began to salivate. Can’t wait until the end of the year when it’s supposed to deliver.


The good stuff starts at 00:55:30

My Japanese isn’t good enough to notice whether they mentioned any kind of release date, so stay tuned.


If you’re not interested in listening to two Japanese men talk about it for 12 minutes, feel free to take a look at these screenshots:

PSA! We’re no longer going to be using (i.e. paying for) the hyphenated version of our URL starting on June 2nd. This means mostly nothing, but if you have a bookmark in your browser that goes to anything related to, it won’t work after that day, and it won’t redirect you to the proper URL. You’ll need to change it manually.


So be sure to update it.


Once again, no more hyphen in our main URL starting June 2nd! If you aren’t already using it, use from that point forward. Thanks y’all!



Today we bring you news of an incredible arrangement/remix album by the award-winning composer ROZEN. Just launched tooday.

Listen to the album here on Bandcamp.

Or go here for other streaming platforms.

Note the Bandcamp version isn’t all of the released tracks that have been made. If you purchase the Digital Deluxe version, you will get 8 main tracks and 7 Bonus tracks that aren’t on the main page.


Here’s a “hidden” remix by Theophany:

Press Release:
Mecha Dream Records is excited to present Phazon: Metroid Saga, a new album by ROZEN featuring music from the Metroid series. The album, ROZEN’s first full-length release from Metroid, includes eight themes from across Samus’s galactic adventures and will be available worldwide on April 21, 2023. CDs featuring album art by Łukasz Sienkiewicz are available for pre-order and will begin shipping around August 2023. A Digital Deluxe version is also being released on Bandcamp only, to include additional bonus tracks not found elsewhere.


Get Phazon: Metroid Saga on all storefronts:


After the release of Metroid Prime Remastered earlier this year, inspiration took root and prompted ROZEN to explore the game’s industrial, textured sound. The result is an “homage to the Metroid series done in a powerful dark hybrid style.” The album brings back the involvement of longtime collaborators, with arrangements by David Peacock and Theophany, additional orchestration by REVEN, and performances by the Sofia Session Orchestra, ETHEReal String Orchestra, and percussionist Larry Salzman.

I listened to it earlier this week and I can say for certain it’s one of the best, most-well produced Metroid arrangement albums to date. Lots of pure, unadulterated Metroid love going on in this album.

It’s incredibly impressive work. Go download or buy it today.


We will also be offering some free codes to the album soon, so please stay tuned to our socials if you want one!

Twitter user @LuigiBlood has datamined a Nintendo Switch Online folder and found some Metroid: Zero Mission screenshots. The interesting part is that it appears that the GBA link service will be kept functional in its NSO GBA counterparts. Does this mean we will get the extra galleries & The Fusion Suit in Metroid Prime Remastered?!? Only time will tell. Again, this is all speculation based on some datamined screenshots but I have no doubt that Zero Mission is on its way, however, retaining the GBA link bonuses would be amazing!
