First 4 Figures: Metroid Prime Hunters Trace Collectible Statue - November 7, 2006: Trace is a Kriken, one of the most hated and feared races in the galaxy. Every Kriken, when he or she reaches a certain age, is exiled by its clan for a rite of passage. In this ritual, the youth is sent out to find a world suitable for invasion and consumption by the greedy and rapacious Krikens. Young Krikens who return having successfully found a habitat for their people are regaled as heroes, and are assured a life of power, wealth, and prestige.
Trace is currently in exile for his rite of passage, which allows him to travel the galaxy looking for planets to expand the Kriken empire. When Trace gets a telepathic call to the Tetra System, he is intrigued. He hopes the abandoned Alimbic Cluster might contain suitable worlds for Kriken invasion. He also seeks the ultimate weapon, because the more power it brings to the Krikens, the more power Trace will receive.
First 4 Figures is extremely proud to present Trace, the first in the Metroid Prime Hunters collectable series. First 4 Figures has used the official game files in order to create an extremely accurate recreation of Trace. Cast in high quality poly-stone, the statue is hand finished and hand painted with metallic paints to give an authentic representation of the Trace's metallic colors. Comes packed in a foam interior full colored box with a card of authenticity. Trace is limited at only 1,500 pieces worldwide online and local specialty stores.
