First 4 Figures have given us some really genuine top-quality figures and statues over the years — so much so that I can be certain that even gamers disinterested in collectible figures would have seen some of their work online. Everything from their Link on Epona, Ganondorf, Darunia and Midna on Wolf Link statues to their Metal Sonic, Super Sonic and Metroid Prime Gunship statues are complete masterpieces. If I’m asked to name high-quality video game figure companies, First 4 Figures is one of the first two names that spring to mind (next to Sideshow Collectibles).
With that in mind, the company have announced an upcoming line called SEGA All Stars — a line-up of pieces based on the extensive library of SEGA characters. The above teaser shows off the first figure in this line; Ryo Hazuki from Dreamcast classic Shenmue will be up for pre-order soon and it’s already looking fantastic. I’ve regrettably never played Shenmue myself, but the figure still looks marvelous and I’m sure any Shenmue fan will be ecstatic to see the game being represented in such a stylish fashion.
So, with a line-up announced, what games would you like to see represented by First 4 Figures? Personally, a high-quality NiGHTS or Billy Hatcher figure would be more than greatly appreciated, but you can let First 4 Figures know what you want to see here on their forums.
