How about Metroid? Though I suppose the games themselves don't sell that well so the statues themselves probably aren't too hot. Once I get that 1/4 Samus and that Ridley I will be set on Metroid. Actually no, I want a Fusion suit so badly.

With so much Sonic I would have figured those were selling pretty well. I think I have about 8 from that line and willing to get classic Amy.

When it comes to Kirby and a few other cuter Nintendo properties I can understand how most people see something like Nightmare or Samus as just more impressive and worth more of their money. For me however, seeing such simple designs like Kirby or Mario made into such a large piece really captures my eye much more so than something that is super complex and busy. For me and it seems many others, I need just need the standard version first. I've only got so much space before things get out of hand.

The Varia suit EX was one of their biggest sellers so Metroid is fine so far.

I noticed people here who passed on the light suit but bought the varia suit. It will be interesting to see how the next suit sells. I wonder if Bowser and Mario on Yoshi will still sell well based on price.

That's because they aren't releasing the characters people want, and they don't advertise. They've done this with a few lines now.

F4F need to get the word out for all these potential licenses and new releases and not rely on their members to spread the word and attract series fans to the group. There's also a lot of ultimately useless polls in the closed and very isolated collectors group to determine interest in licenses, but it's like asking a bunch of Zelda fans whether they want an anime statue when they don't even watch anime.

I wouldn't say Zelda fans don't watch anime. If they would've put reg Kirby first and this after, this would still sell bad and the license would end anyway. They do share their stuff with the other statue collector groups and video game sites had articles about some of their statues but they don't have the hype of the other companies. They end send statues to Radd Titan to review. I haven' really seen anyone with huge XM, Sideshow, PCS or Prime 1 collections buying F4F statues though. Lots of people just stick to their favorite company.

I think they just make bad calls. There's not much of a market for Kirby statues, much less variants of him. You won't get much interest from SF/MK/super hero collectors. So, I dunno, some things probably shouldn't be made out of good business sense.

Or make them very limited, like Jerry does for his passion projects.

We do advertise for ALL our products. We give it all and do what we can for each and everyone of them.
