August 19th 2014 : Sword Kirby
First 4 Figures has had a long history with Nintendo, bringing numerous franchises from one of gaming’s biggest companies to life, including Super Mario, Metroid and The Legend of Zelda. Today, we’re excited to bring the news that we’re bringing yet another one of Nintendo’s iconic series to the high-end collectible market in another brand new range of collectibles: Kirby! Kicking off this brand new range is Sword Kirby.
Kirby’s sword persona debuted in the 1993 game Kirby’s Adventure, and has since become one of his most popular of his many, many personas he’s had throughout his history. In our statue, Kirby is swinging his sword upwards in a vertical swipe, leaving a bright streak behind in its wake. This means the statues reaches a height of 16” tall at the tip of the sword. Like many other of our statues, we have an exclusive variant of Sword Kirby, where we’ve been able to illuminate the blue sword streak through use of LED lighting.
We anticipate that Sword Kirby will be ready for release in Q1 2015. The Exclusive edition of Sword Kirby can only be pre-ordered from our website, and is very limited to only 850 pieces worldwide. It costs $239.99, and can be pre-ordered here. The regular edition will be more widely available, but will still be limited to 2000 pieces worldwide. This version has an RRP of $219.99, and be pre-ordered from us here.
