Looking at Nintendo products, new figmas are on the way for Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom with Zelda herself as well as Link and Ganondorf. Elsewhere, Eunie from Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is getting her own figma as well. There are both brand new figures here as well as new looks at ones that were previously announced.

Here are some of the highlights:

Metroid Dread E.M.M.I. figma

We have a status update on the E.M.M.I. figma for Metroid Dread, as Good Smile has now provided a release date, new photos, and opened pre-orders.

The figma uses a flexible plastic in important areas along with metal screws for some joints. Its extending limbs have been preserved in figure form. Optional parts include a faceplate, DNA-extracting spike, and a large-size base. It measures approximately 215mm in height.

Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Link figma

Anime Expo 2023 is taking place this weekend, and several new figures have been revealed – including a brand new one for Link based on his appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Link will have its own figma from Max Factory. Further details, including a release window, were not announced. We also thus far only have a look at the figma in prototype form as the production process is early on.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Mio figma pre-order

We have a big update on the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 figma for Mio, as Good Smile today provided a final release date, photos, and pre-orders.

Mio, who is is one of the main characters of the Switch RPG, first had her own figure revealed last August. Then in February, an actual prototype was shown off – just without color. Now the design has been completely finalized and Good Smile is ramping up for production.

Here’s some information about the figure plus new photos:

We knew that Pearl and Marina would be getting a new Off the Hook figma for Splatoon 2, but it only existed as a prototype prior to today. The final design has now been revealed, which you can see above.

Today’s news comes as part of WonHobby Gallery 2020 Autumn. The same event also gave us a first look at the new Melia figure from Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and new Nendoroids, including Marnie, Doom Slayer, and Crash Bandicoot.


Play-Asia has opened pre-orders for the Splatoon Boy and Splatoon Boy: DX Edition figmas. The first one only includes a single figure while the DX Edition comes with two (as well as Judd and Li’l Judd).

Here are the official product descriptions and a few photos:

Max Factory has revealed three more Nintendo figmas currently in production. Zero Suit Samus (Metroid: Other M), Link (Zelda: A Link Between Worlds) and Cordelia (Fire Emblem: Awakening) will get new releases down the road. Samus and Link are both “regular” figmas while Cordelia will be a scaled figure.
