Custom Samus Aran Amiibo figure by Jin-Saotome Custom Samus Aran Amiibo figure by Jin-Saotome
The Nintendo Amiibo characters are nifty little statues and here I've added articulation and a special twist to one, Samus Aran! When the Zero Suit Samus was released I knew what I had to do, an unmasked Samus. Using mini ball joints I made Samus' power suit helmet removable so you could swap on the Zero Suit head. I added shoulder and arm joints so she could aim her arm cannon around and even a tiny magnet inside the helmet so she could hold it in her left hand. A beam effect was added and I repainted the Zero Suit Samus into the black alt costume, giving them both power-up bases. They still work with the Wii U and are now unique Amiibo figures!
