Check out Ridley waiting for Samus on top of the the Chozo Artifact Temple – in LEGO! This cool scene was built by Canadian LEGO builder Jared Rosenblitt. It brings back memories of that classic boss battle in one detailed diorama.
If you want to become galactic bounty hunter, upgrade your noggin with this awesome Metroid Samus helmet. This replica looks authentic and was made by Etsy artist Raptorwithashotgun, who apparently put the shotgun down long enough to create this gaming work of art.
Refrigerator doors must have magnets. That’s just a fact of life. Artist PJ McQuade has the right set of magnets for geeks, featuring characters from Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and more.

Proposals for LEGO video game sets haven’t met much success, but that’s not going to stop fans from hoping. One of the newest proposals on Cuusoo is for a Metroid set.

Fans of the Metroid games will love this papercraft Samus Aran. The 6′-10″ tall model was created by Flickr user IAmThatOneGuy. Oh yeah, him. I know that guy. Believe it or not, this awesome Samus figure was made out of nothing but paper and glue.
Looking to complete that Samus Aran costume with something that is actually functional? Of course you are. Samus is nothing without her arm cannon after all. This one not only looks good, it acts as a Wii-mote for playing Wii games.
