In today’s world, increasingly filled with humans polluting the land and identity politics ruining normal conversations, Nintendo and HAL Laboratory’s long-running character Kirby has been a light to keep my hope alive, whatever of it is left. Now, First4Figures have done it again with a huge and bold new statue – and it’s based on none other than the pink puffball himself.
Standing at roughly 12 inches tall and coming in both standard and light-up LED variants, the Warp Star Kirby statue will further cement your commitment to maintaining a carefree and possibly nihilistic view on the natural world and everything in it. Featured above, you can view a video showing off the new statue.
The Warp Star Kirby “Exclusive” edition comes with the following:
- Kirby – Warp Star Kirby statue – LED light-up function (Warp Star lights up)
- Highly detailed base capturing the theme and style from the Kirby game series – LED light-up function (2 modes: Always On – Fully Animated*Pending on approval)
- Authentication Card
- Purchasing the Kirby – Warp Star Kirby EXCLUSIVE edition at anytime during Day One after the launch starts (24 hours) will entitle you to the following extra free bonuses: an additional Signature Card signed by Alex Davis, a Day One edition Hologram Sticker, and extra F4F Reward Points.
There’s also a “Regular” edition of the statue that appears to just be missing the built-in LED lights. Both statues cost the same price, $349.99.
The latest game in the franchise, Kirby: Star Allies, is now available for the Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the game here (we highly recommend it!).
