During a livestream on the Japanese-only MaxFactory YouTube channel yesterday, they announced the preorder date for new Samus Aran Metroid Dread version Figma that all of us have been drooling over this past year: Tuesday, September 27th. We can see that she’ll come packaged with her special Omega Cannon which I am extremely happy about. I hope she does come with a few more accessories this time around, too.

As for exactly where to preorder, since it hasn’t been exactly revealed when the product will be released in the west, you’ll need to go through a Japanese figurine exporter. Personally I like to use Amiami, but there are many others like Hobby-Genki or Anime Export. I can’t recommend one over the other – you’ll need to shop around on your own!


Like all of you, I can’t wait to get this incredible figure in my hands.
