F4F Reveal New Kirby Statue

First 4 Figures have revealed a new Kirby statue, set to release in the 3rd quarter of this year. There will be 2 versions, a regular one and an Exclusive Edition (which can only be obtained from their website). The Exclusive Edition sees Kirby twirling at the push of a button and has another button that place the iconic music as Kirby makes his way to a Goal Door.

Kirby™ – Kirby and the Goal Door (Exclusive Edition) comes with the following:

  • Kirby™ – Kirby and the Goal Door PVC painted statue
  • Highly detailed base inspired by the Kirby™ art style
  • Touch sensor to activate Kirby’s dance twirl
  • Secondary touch sensor that plays Goal Game theme
  • Limited Edition Numbering
  • Authentication Card

Their website states the following:

First 4 Figures is proud to introduce their latest PVC statue collectible, Kirby and the Goal Door.

This is the first statue to release in the all-new Kirby™ PVC lineup.

At the end of each stage is a Goal Door that Kirby and his pals enter to play a Goal Game before proceeding to a new level. Kirby does a quick twirl and strikes a very cute pose just before they enter the Goal Door. That entire scene with Kirby by the Goal Door and striking a pose is where this statue’s concept is inspired from. And the base replicates the environment of the very iconic Dream Land Stage, which has a checkered-pattern pathway and a grassy and flowery terrain.

The Exclusive Edition of this statue features touch sensors that can trigger motion and music! Touching the blue flower on the right-hand side of the base will activate the twirl that Kirby does just before he strikes a pose, while the orange flower just below that will activate the song that plays after finishing a Goal Game!

Don’t miss out on this limited-time offer exclusively on!
