Metal Gear Solid fans who want their own little bipedal robot tank to terrorize the bookshelf ought to look forward to threeA Toys's impressive model of Metal Gear Rex from the PS1 classic. The photos below show an unpainted model, but already it's looking quite fantastic. You know that this figure is going to be quality when knowing that Ashley Wood, threeA co-founder and artist, was responsible for several official MGS comic adaptations, including PSP's Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel.
This beast stands 42 cm (about 16.5 inches) tall and features a spiffy light-up rail gun attachment. This quality comes at a hefty price, however. Word is that Rex, which goes on sale in January, will cost over $400! Holy bejeezus! I... well... you don't really need car insurance, do you? F*ck that little gecko, right?
