Creation + Inspiration Zero (mission) by G0ggles Creation + Inspiration Zero (mission) by G0ggles
After waiting nearly fifteen years, I finally get my wish of having Samus Aran, in action figure form (incidentally, this'll probably be the only Figma I'll ever own). And only a mere five days after I paid for my preorder, too!

Also pictured is one of my Molgas, whose colour scheme was inspired by my favourite space bounty hunter.

I didn't know either until I saw pictures of it on Tumblr (if you don't already have a Tumblr, you should get one!); I've found it useful for finding awesome surprises such as that Figma. There's a Link Figma up on preorder as well!

I've another picture of my Molga in my gallery; its missiles are appropriately painted as well. :D

As for what Zoid Samus Aran would pilot, I thought that Molga would be the perfect choice (powered cannon + missiles, plus overall shape), although I would go for anything that's fast/agile, as well as having a cannon (preferably one of the charging type, such as Geno Saurer/Breaker, Berserk Führer or Gairyuki) and/or missiles (König Wolf with its CPs or Liger Zero Panzer)

nice.

knowing her itd probably end up a custom one. perhaps a zeekdober or houndsoldier? or one of the ice metal ones? (ice metal is impossible to make in zoids canon since the continent it was on got destroyed)

I dunno; blades doesn't seem to be a Samus Aran thing. I just realised: one of the claws on Raven's Genosaurer in the Chaotic Century series had a grappling option, which also works with Samus Aran's gear. :D

did houndsoldier have blades? i thought it just had a ton of guns on it lol.
well the ice metal thing is still open since the majority of them are ranged some even have black hole cannons basically.

XD oh wow really? thats really starting to fit her then lol

Houndsoldier had a pair of javelins/spears that were used to impale enemy zoids when Houndsoldier charged at them. The only Ice Metal Zoids I remember were the Ice Blazer (an upgraded Zeek Dober, so it had "Ice Armour", and the blades anyway) and the Gungyarados (which flew).

So, I still think the Zoids most suited to Samus Aran in terms of functionality and weaponry are Molga (with CP-07), König Wolf (even though its 'cannon' is bullet-based) and Genosaurer (despite the lack of missiles). Oh, wait. Gun Sniper has a cannon and missiles as well!

actually snipe master and gunsniper would be a perfect modern-ish zoid for her especially with all the customizations it can handle(leena)

descat has bassically a black hole cannon and a barreled impact cannon its an ice metal zoids that can go 420 km/h :l and this is a really old zoid timeline wise. it even contained a super high speed drive.

btw guess what i came home to today? bits and peices of 5 zoids scattered across the ground. i dont think i can repeair these im also missing the majority of teh caps now

(assuming you're talking about the Samus Aran Figma)

I preordered it from [link] (they accept PayPal, and do international shipping), and only paid 4,500yen (about AUD$56, slightly more in US$) for the figure + shipping. Sadly, though, they're already sold out, and you'd be lucky to pay anything less than $110 at the moment. Maybe Nintendo'll release/license a(nother) Samus Aran figure of some sort outside of Japan...?

Tilly, you wouldn't believe how long I'd been waiting to finally take a photo for this! Pity the Figma didn't come with missiles, otherwise I would have opened up the Molga's back pod to show off the missiles as well!
