Polygon got their hands on the GameStop Fox McCloud statue by PowerA and did an unboxing.
Man… It sucks being broke.
I was thinking about doing my very first unboxing vid for this but it looks like they beat me to it. Well at least now I know I will actually take it out of the box seeing as you cant see though the box. (would have left it in for collection purposes) I am so sick and tired of them holding back the statue (and the game) gamestop already took the $91 out of my checking account THREE TIMES now, they would take it out then put it back in… rinse repeat and I’m getting pretty darn fed up with it!
Still haven’t received it yet. I called the Gamestop near my place and they told me that mines is on back order. Well, I hope that I can get it soon.
You know, this is an awesome statue, but looking at the quality, it doesn’t really look like it’s entirely worth 80 bucks. Don’t get me wrong, that this is awesome, but definitely not 80 bucks.
OK now I realy want one.
Pretty cool, can’t wait for Star Fox Zero to come out. Super excited
I’m hoping UK gets more StarFox goodies as it gets closer to Zero’s release. I am more excited about potential merchandise and new Amiibos. Zero is the fourth version of first game, it’s third version of first game I will own and I played SF64 3DS a lot. Regardless of changes it’s not going to be a new game so not sure how long I will stay interested in the game.
looks very nice and detailed.
All I’m hoping for is now goodies like Falco and Krystal statues, amiibos of the sequel title, stuff animals like Sonic and Pikachu, a Star Fox tv show or movie based during the timeline of Assault, and more. What do you guys think?
Interesting, I can’t tell you how long I’ve waited for a Star Fox tv Series. As for Star Fox goodies I don’t know since I’ve never collected stuff like that.
How’s your projects coming along?
Nothings change in the projects, including the Sonic meets Star Fox movies. Although, thing is that I’m working on a bunch of different stuff like my art work on deviantart. So you could say I’m less focus on youtube as I should be, but I do have a reason. It’s mainly due to the whole fair use of anything (mainly movies and tv shows). Don’t get me wrong, I’m still working on the videos, I mostly forget to do it.
I see, you’ve got some good stuff on your deviantart page. As for me I’m currently putting my fan game projects on hold until I feel 100% better. Plus, I’ve been posting some smash 4 matches with Fox and so on youtube.
Nintendo are sending out questionnaires to people about Amiibos. If you get one make sure you suggest a full plush Star Fox team (Fox, Krystal, Falco, Slippy and Peppy) Amiibo set. Feel free to add other Star Fox characters or even vehicles to that list.
Hey if they make a Krystal Amiibo will it work in Smash?
I almost forgot. Some plush and amiibos of extra characters like Katt, Bill, Wolf, Leon, Panther, Oikonny, maybe General Pepper, and Rob64. Pigma and Andross are both dead, so nothing for them. A statue of the Arwing, Landmaster, Wolfen, and Great Fox from Assault.
Best not to forget a display for all of them. At least one space themed one and another based on a planet. We got to have a set to recreate those famous Star Fox moments. Be amazing if one you could set like the Great Fox and have it rotate around a planet or maybe a Wolfen and Arwing chasing each other around the planet.
True. True. If there had to be a space theme on a planet, it’s probably Corneria obviously. Though, it would be really could if… Oh man I totally forgot about Tricky for the plush and Amiibo. I’m such an idiot. Anyway, it would be could if there was probably a planet theme of Sauria since it’s my favorite Star Fox planet, next to Corneria. Other goodie ideas I got, would be an HD remake games for Adventures and Assault, since Twilight Princess and Sunshine are getting HD remakes, and TV show like Sonic X SATam and Boom, Pokemon, and Kirby, and probably a movie like the upcoming Ratchet and Clank and Sly Cooper movies.
Funnily enough the planet I was thinking of was Sauria. Before you fly to a shard or the planet itself you have Great Fox and all the shards going around the planet. I agree Corneria is more likely though. If it came with Star Fox Adventures 2 Corneria by Monolith Soft I would be OK with that planet choice. With the HD remakes would love it if they did a joint package of both Assault and Adventures HD remakes. I assumed if we get Star Fox Adventures themed Amiibo one would be of Fox and Tricky. A separate Prince Tricky Amiibo is good. More Star Fox Amiibo the better.
