New Metroid Prime Hunters statue surfaces

Our last glimpse at First 4 Figurines' Metroid-based statues almost caused a heart attack in the DS Fanboy staff. Heck, even our first glimpse at their prototypes was the stuff that resulted in large puddles of drool collecting by our feet as we blankly stood forward, eyes bugging out from our skulls. Their latest figure, which depicts the Kriken Trace from Metroid Prime Hunters, is nothing short of fantastic.

Bounty hunters battle down under

The skills to pay the bills.Australian gamers recently took part in a Metroid Prime: Hunters tournament for a grand prize of $1,000 dollars AUD (about $760 dollars US). With 8 of the country's finest bounty hunters going at it, the competition was fierce and only one man was able to walk away victorious. Jeff Hawthorne of Brisbane was able to win in the end using the character Sylux. Jeff explains how he managed to best his competition:

"The Battle was in Processor Core, and I got Lucky to have the Spawn Point closest to the Jump pad so I could race and get the Death-alt only moments before eXc35um (Ali) could get it. I got a quick 4 or 5 points with that, then just mainly Magmauled and used my shock coil when I needed health. Not to forget laying trap wires around the arena."

You can see the other 7 finalists here as well as view pictures from the event here.

First Metroid Prime Hunters statue revealed

The kind gentleman of First 4 Figures dropped us a line, along with our superiors, letting us know that they have finally revealed the first in their long line of proposed collectible statues from the Metroid universe. Oddly enough, however, is that the debut collectible is not for everyone's favorite bounty huntress hunter Samus. No, instead we get Kanden.

The figures is looking sharp, even if it is not the finalized product. However, I've always felt you should always put your best foot forward, which would apply to First 4 Figures' debut collectible being one of the Samus variations. Featuring an interconnecting base that will allow Kanden to connect with other upcoming hunters, we're sure his first opponent will be none other than the blonde bombshell herself.

Metroid Prime Hunters includes free Rumble Pak

If you're one of the folk that purchased Metroid Prime Pinball, you've no doubt been playing Metroid Prime Hunters all this time with your free Rumble Pak as it realistically vibrated the echo of missile damage through the handheld, then your fingertips, and finally on into your brain. You could've also purchased the GBA slot-fitting add-on direct from Nintendo, or at a more expensive price, through importer Lik-Sang, to experience the tremors of gameplay. Or, if you're one of the dozens of people on the globe who've yet to acquire Metroid Prime Hunters, you could finally pick up the bounty-hunting simulation and get the accessory for free as it's now included in copies of the game, yet only while supplies last. No word yet on if the bundle will be available for those in Europe.

Hunter's License on Google personal page

Following our coverage of proudly displaying your MPH Hunter's License, a reader writes us to tell of how to include all that desirable information into your personalized Google homepage. Clicking the link will add Hunter Sakurina's license for display, yet should you click the edit button directly above the presented License and input the GSPID of the Hunter you wish displayed (which can again be found here), you can add anyone you wish. Also, this isn't limited to just one Hunter either as you can pretty much add as many as you'd like.

MP Hunters stat images

For all you forum-frequenters out there, DS Fanboy reader Will (and we assume he is also a genius, because those are the types of people who read our site) has dropped an interesting link into our tip jar that allows Metroid Prime Hunters players to create an image for use in forums or on their webspace. The image updates every two hours and is perfect for forum signatures, compacting key information in regards to your WiFi experience into one handy little place for all to laugh marvel at. Props should be directed to KAAOSA at the Official Nintendo Nsider Forums for creating this awesome little utility.

Displaying your Hunter's License

A faithful reader writes us to tell of the process of embedding your Hunter's License information on your personal webspace, much like those with a Gamertag on the Xbo360 have been able to do since the console launched in November. Scrolling down after the jump will display proof of such as you'll be able to see Shorties' Hunter's License displayed. You'll first want to gain your GSPID, which can be easily accomplished by going through the brisk tutorial found here.

[Thanks Shorties!]

Metroid Prime Hunters video preview

G4TV has a video preview of the upcoming Metroid Prime Hunters, showcasing some of the other bounty hunters in the game, along with revealing a certain boss that Samus engages during her travels. While it's light on the content in regards to what's actually in the game (GASP!), all of the juicy multiplayer footage and cinematics should be enough to motivate you to head on over and check out the video. 

It's almost here; who else is preparing to slam on some chumps? Which bounty hunter are you most looking forward to try?

[Thanks dragonjoe!]
