Remember those statues of gaming characters such as Samus Aran, Link, and Skull Kid from First4Figures? Sure you do. It would seem that the next Nintendo character to be immortalized in statue form is a Metroid spacecraft. The company sent out this teaser image in their latest newsletter (click it to see it in its original slightly larger size) along with this clue:
Hint - allows an intergalactic bounty hunter to go planet hopping!
I'd like to think that this is Samus Aran's spacecraft we're talking about, but I have this sinking feeling that it'll wind up belonging to one of the non-Samus bounty hunters from Metroid Prime Hunters and, frankly, that's not nearly as exciting. The official announcement of whatever this is will come later in the month, apparently.
