Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid line of figures have always impressed and delighted collectors, and I imagine that’ll remain the case with their upcoming release of Metal Gear Solid’s Solid Snake.
Somehow, Snake manages to look both cute and gruff with Nendoroid’s signature chibi style. Coming with several accessories (including weapons, a cardboard box and a somewhat creepy looking low-polygonal face, for those that want to give themselves nightmares/reminisce about the first Metal Gear Solid game), this figure comes in at around 100mm in height (typical for Nendoroids).
If you doubt its quality, have no fear – their other video game character offerings (Link from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Luigi, Sonic the Hedgehog, Red from Pokémon Red/Blue and Isabelle from Animal Crossing: New Leaf) have been equally as exceptional, with a fine build quality and more than sufficient posing abilities (just check some of the examples in the pictures below if you don’t believe us!)
The figure is due to release late November in Japan and are generally limited in supply, so if you’re dying to have one, your best bet is to pre-order it. Our personal recommendations of where to do so would be via AmiAmi for ¥3,490 before tax (£20.3, $34.2) – though these can sometimes suffer import charges – or Gamerabilia for £44.99.
