I've never gotten into Nendoroid, but after seeing that Wind Waker Link figure and now this Solid Snake one, all I can say is "send help" -- it's happening sooner than later.
The key features here, in my book, are the alternate low-polygon face (created using data from Metal Gear Solid, according to Good Smile Company) and a cardboard box that's a miniature version of the actual box the Nendoroid will ship in. Love me some attention to detail. Other accessories include a handgun, assault rifle, and cigarette. He can even go prone!
Pre-orders for Solid Snake are opening this week. Good Smile is also planning to produce a Venom Snake figure from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Goodbye, money.
