First4Figures will be releasing two versions of their Metal Sonic figure, one will be the exclusive edition that lights up, is limited to 300 units and costs $174.99. The second will be called the Standard version which comes at $154.99, still expensive.
The statue is only available in US and Canada, not that I think many of you would be pre-ordering it. But I like giving you guys a heads up on stuff, so you guys are well informed.
Head over to Sonic Stadium to check out the full gallery of images. Hit the jump for the press release.
Metal Sonic is aggressive and very cold hearted. He views himself as superior to others and wishes to rule over them. He is also completely obsessed with the idea that he is the better Sonic. He can achieve 4 times the accelerating speed of Sonic when his circuits are overloaded. When the energy overloads the circuitry, blue-white sparks spout from Metal Sonic. The reaction is called “V. Maximum Overdrive Attack” and its power can penetrate any substance. However, the V. Maximum Overdrive Attack cannot be sustained because of its unfavorable cost performance and potential to destroy Metal Sonic himself.
First 4 Figures is proud to present Metal Sonic! Created in his classic design, he is speeding across the Stardust Speedway inspired base. Arm outstretched, he reaches out to grab hold of Sonic and gain an advantage in their life or death race in Act III!
This is the exclusive version of Metal Sonic. His eyes, chest and back engine lights up. Additionally, the base comes with lights that light up the transparent spark by alternating between flashing and continuous lights. The lights slowly fade away after you turn them off.
Comes in deluxe full color packaging, hand numbered base, and includes an Authenticity Card which allows you to purchase the same number of the model next in the Classic Sonic the Hedgehog series.
This is the third in the Classic Sonic the Hedgehog statue series, so if you have bought the first or second in the range, Sonic or Super Sonic, and authenticated on our website, you are entitled to the same number of Metal Sonic!
Highly Limited to 350 pieces only.
Available in the USA and Canada only.

damn thats expensive XP
More Serious collectors items from F4F! I have already pre-ordered Super Sonic Exclusive figurine but I hate this US exclusive stuff.. guess I'll wait for ebay!
Their stuff are really impressive, I have Sonic Statue, and I can say its some fine work.
Really want this, but way way too expensive. I'd buy a new iPod Touch or a Wii with Sonic Colors or even a PS3 before dropping 180 on a statue.
A damn cool statue…
