Metroid Swag Alerts

Postby CapCom » 08.02.09 10:21pm

In light of Ketsueki's for the most part ignored post about the Samus model, I'm creating a sticky thread where you can post the latest Metroid swag you find. This first post we'll try and keep updated as new commercially-available swag is spotted. Farther down on the thread, you can post anything new and unique you find (such as models, t-shirts, posters) that you can buy in a store (online or brick-and-mortar). Please submit any e-bay and YJA auctions of really rare or interesting stuff to VGMStudios' really freakin' awesome auctions thread!!!

List of commercially available swag so far:

Metroid Prime Trilogy Pre-order Bonuses
    T-shirt (Gamestop exclusive)
    Poster (Gamestop and Amazon)

Soundtracks
    Metroid Prime & Fusion Soundtrack

First 4 Figures
    Zero Suit Samus (Preorder Q3 2009)
    Zero Suit Samus with LEDs (Preorder Q3 2009)
    Phazon Suit Samus (Sold Out?)
    Gunship (Preorder Q3 2009)
    Gunship with LEDs (Cancelled?)
    Trace (Cancelled?)

Magazines
Retro Gamer #65 featuring Super Metroid (check out our front page article!)

Sounds like a good idea, I'll keep my eye out for anything Metroid-related. ;)

Sorry CapCom, I think it's an lack of understanding instead of I just ignore you.

Can you repeat to me what you want ? (just put here news swag we found ?)

Thanks :)

Stuff like the Metroid Prime 3 wallet from Hot Topic that's been mass-produced and is commercially available.

Also, things like the Zero Suit Samus PVC model made by this indy modeller that have a smaller manufacturing run but can still be bought from a dealer:

BTW, if anyone can find out where to order that...

I said :

I think we will be able to buy the samus statue on next weeks or months on market because it's currently possible to find these previous figures on internet or irl market.

Anyway, I mailed the "company".

You should have a link to HOT TOPIC on there.
http://search.hottopic.com/search?p=KK&srid=S9-3&lbc=hottopic&ts=moby&pw=Nintendo%20Wallet&uid=230023445&isort=score&w=Nintendo&rk=1

They have lots of official Metroid stuff. Hats, shirts ect.

Last I went in to one of there stores I saw a Chain Wallet of Samus Prime 3 styled.

I know the website might Not show any Metroid garb, but I know they sell stuff.

I bought 2 MP3 shirts from them. ;D

Late to the party, eh?
No, They do not. They do not have any more Metroid merch available on their site.
Try doing a search for "Metroid" on that site. What's that? NOTHING COMES UP? SAY IT ISN'T SO!

We're very familiar with the Metroid Merch that used to be sold at Hot Topic.
We used to have everything up on our front page for a while.
It is "sold out" and not being re-manufactured, so we cannot list it. The t-shirts were some of the first items to go on clearance. Meaning: no one wanted them.
Check our Prime 3 section, dude. We have pics of the T-shirts and the wallet.
The original Metroid shirt (with the NES boxart) is sold in some other locations, but it's getting really rare, and hard to find.

Speaking of which I need to replace my shirt, it's starting to wear out after 5+ years ^_^

That one they reprint once in awhile. Nobody likes Prime, but there's enough people buying the NES shirt to warrant a reprint once in awhile...
