As reported last week, high-end figure manufacturer First 4 Figures has just launched pre-orders for their newest figure: the Metroid Prime Gunship.  This ship is a replica of the one Samus uses in the original Metroid Prime game.

The Metroid Prime Gunship is 12 inches long and will cost $299.99 USD.  The figure comes with several LEDs and can be tilted in several different ways due to the swivel joint that attaches the ship to its base.  This figure is limited to 750 pieces worldwide and is currently scheduled to ship Q2 2011.
