After teasing its reveal for the best part of 2022, Good Smile Company has now finally unveiled the much-anticipated ‘Samus Aran: DREAD ver.’ online, with pre-orders now available (thanks Nintendo Soup!)
Modelled on Samus’ appearance in MecurySteam’s Metroid Dread, the figure is highly posable and comes with all of the added customisation options that we have come to expect from Good Smile’s releases.
From “METROID DREAD” comes figma Samus Aran: DREAD ver.! Featuring double-jointed knee joints, Morph Ball parts and more, this is a figma Metroid fans won't want to miss!

Included with the figure are a Morph Ball, Omega Cannon parts, a gripping and open hand, and (most importantly) a Spider Magnet base — yes, this means you can stick Samus to walls just like in Dread!
Pre-orders for the figma are now live (from September 26th, 2022 10pm PST to November 9th, 2022 11:59pm PST) over on Good Smile’s official store for $86.99 / 93.90€ (around £82 with current exchange rates) as well as an additional shipping charge.

If this seems a little pricey, it’s just indicative of the quality of Good Smile’s figures; however, we can see this being a big hit with Metroid Dread fans who want to add Samus’ signature poses to their gaming display.
The figure is set to release in October 2023 for Japan and November 2023 for in the west.
