F4F made a response to fans complaining about this piece yesterday on Facebook. When I checked the comments section this morning the post was deleted.

From my fragmented memory of the conversation a few things were brought up:

- F4F stated that they wanted to do the cat suit because it was unlikely that any other company would be doing a ploystone statue of it. They also mentioned that there are "lots" of vinyl and other types of regular Mario statues on the market and they wanted to do something unique.

- Someone asked about a 1/4 scale Link and the F4F rep teased that it was in development.

- I asked about a 1/4 scale varia suit Samus, to which I got no reply.

Gary you did get a reply. They said "yup".

I think 1/4 varia suit Samus is a bit more of a surprise than 1/4 Link...EVERYBODY knew there'd be a 1/4 Link, the question is more "when" than "if". Since they did 1/4 Zant, Wolf Link/Midna, Ganondorf and Zelda is now shipping I wouldn't be surprised if Link is next but the F4F wait time is loooooooonnnnnggggg...

In general though, the Facebook thread just reiterated what is well known...fans of F4F are passionate about the company but are tired of getting minor costumes of the major characters (random Mario suits, Light Samus, etc) when many want the MAIN costumes of the character (a killer Super Mario Statue, 1/4 Varia Suit Samus) and main characters not explored yet (Bowser). I get where F4F is coming from but if they want to grow their company and get more people to take notice of what they offer they're going to have to listen to what fans want as far as the Nintendo characters people are asking for. Minor Mario suits only go but so far when most want a traditional Mario and are vocal about it. It'd be different if they did more popular costumes like Fire Suit, Cape Mario, Racoon Tail Mario, etc, but they're really stretching it with these types of choices always being first.

I hope these suit statues are only for Mario and they don't make these suit statues for Luigi, Peach, Toad and Rosalina. I just want regular suits for those characters.
