    ... as much as I'd love to keep this under my hat in the off chance that this ends up being a limited release and I want to cut down on the number of people who might know about it, it's ludicrous to think that SOMEBODY isn't going to mention this eventually, so here goes.

    Do you like high quality toys? How about Metal Gear Solid? Have you, like me, had a perpetual wet dream since roughly 1998 wishing that someone would make a Metal Gear Rex toy?

    Ashley Wood (god bless that man) and Kojima have your back -

    No word yet on release date, price, or if it'll be sold through Sideshow or just through 3A's online store as of yet.

    From comparison shots the size will be somewhere around 15-17" tall, like the 3A World War Robot figures it'll likely be made from a combination of PVC, Cast Resin and ABS plastic, and the price will likely be in the range of $300-400.

    In case anyone is wondering, yes, their production toys DO look that good:

    Rex is long over due for a toy. But at a possible $300 to $400 range, I'm sitting out of this race.

    That figure looks like crap......
    Sorry, I'm just trying to make myself feel better knowing that I won't be able to get such a wonderful piece of Metal Gear goodness.

    While I have no problem considering it, I think it might be frowned upon for me to post pictures of myself having sex with this toy.

    Mother of god. Its beautiful.

    Sadly, $100+ is more than I will ever be able to justify for a toy :lol 

    The nerd in me rages. This appears to be based on MGS4 Rex, given all the rust.
    WHY IS THE RAIL GUN STILL THERE?

    Because I think there'd be even more nerd rage (I know I wouldn't approve) if Rex didn't have a rail gun. It's sort of a mix of MGS1 and MGS4 Rex, with all the armaments and goodies but without the factory fresh paint.

    Who knows, maybe it's removable.

    EDIT: it looks like it's got a lot of influence from this old artwork from one of the MGS Art books:

    Edit: And by "a lot" I mean, "It's tan". Mostly an excuse to post that picture :p

    It's absolutely ridiculous that it's taken this long to make MGS figures of the actual mechas. I mean, for god's sake, the title of the series is called METAL GEAR. I hope they continue to release more stuff like Ray and the Gekkos.

    If somehow they manage to make this thing around 200 bucks, I don't think i'd be able to resist. That's more than i've paid for anything remotely toy related, but for Rex... i'd probably do it. Higher chance if they give it the original paint scheme.

    There are actually two Metal Gear Ray figures.

    one by Yamato

    [​IMG]

    and one by Macfarlane

    The Macfarlane is better looking in my opinion but it's divided into parts and split between the MGS2 figures.

    Probably going to be too much for me but damn do I want one. Rex and the Shagohod are my favorite MGs from the series.

    My local Toys R Us has the MediCom Toy MGS Collection #2 Ultra Detail Figues in. Stickered as a Trus exclusive they were $15 (although theres a 2nd barcode that rang up as spring toddler or something for $9ish). I ended up getting Naked Snake in Tiger Cammo. Series 2 has MGS 4 Raiden, Vamp and Old snake. MGS3 The Boss and Naked Snake. No Vamps at my Trus and the two Old Snakes were clear. Eventually I'll get The Boss and MGS4 Raiden, $15 is a bit much for what they are for me.
