ThreeA Announces Half-Size Metal Gear Rex Figure
If only we had a half-size Gray Fox figure to stomp on with this gorgeous, half-size Metal Gear Rex by ThreeA.
In an effort to make its original Metal Gear Rex statue more accessible to people who don't have the room to house its behemoth rail gun, ThreeA is releasing a half-size edition of the figure. However, just because this version of Rex is smaller doesn't mean that it's lacking any of the pristine details that the original did. The half-size edition will still have the same level of detail and the light-up systems that fans loved about the first and it offers a few better features. ThreeA has improved the articulation for the figure, which will give this half-size edition the ability to turn its head. Plus, the hatches on Rex's knees and back-unit open and close with ease. The statue measures out at 11.58" for the rail gun length, 8.35" for a resting height and a 7.35" width.
Metal Gear Rex premiered in Metal Gear Solid as a near-impenetrable weapon that housed 30mm gatling guns, anti-tank missiles, a free-electron laser and an untraceable nuclear weapon launcher. Basically, it's a super badass weapon that would make a super badass coffee table piece in your living room.
While there isn't an official lookbook just yet, you can check out some pictures of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Metal Gear Rex Half-Size Edition figure below as you wait for the figure to come out in May. For now, you can pre-order the half-size Rex starting on April 22 at 9:00PM EST for $230.
