Metroid started way back in 1986 on the Nintendo Entertainment System.  It has 11 different games within it's series on Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, and every Nintendo system except for the Nintendo 64 & virtual boy.  The latest Metroid game is on the Wii.  It has a solid fan base and was also noted as being one of the very first games ever to have a female protagonist.  It was also one of the first games with  non-linear game play.  If you haven't played Metroid, you should.  It's a whole lot of fun.  If you are like me & still have all of your old systems in working order, you can even start with the first Metroid title & move up from there.  You don't necessarily need to though. Wii put out a great trilogy collectors edition.

 You can start with this Wii version.  Once you're hooked, you're probably going to want to add some Metroid coolness to your action figure collection!  Guess what?  You can!  Below is the main Protagonists' ship of choice.  Samus Aran flies this baby in Metroid Prime.  This replica is a limited edition of 750 pieces and measures in at 12 inches long.  It even lights up!

Go get one now, while they last for $279.99 over at Entertainment Earth.  You can also try & get on First 4 Figures waitlist.  They made this beautiful reproduction & have even more Metroid items for sale!  Most have sold out, so you might scour Ebay or Amazon for one of these!

Good Hunting!
