Kotobukiya presents a new model kit from the hit Metal Gear Solid video game series: the ultimate MGS Gear, METAL GEAR REX.
Designed by Yoji Shinkawa, REX stands on massively armored legs and wields a huge railgun in addition to gatling guns, missiles, and a laser. The aerodynamic main body has a forward pointing cockpit and a radome to send the pilot additional data. The REX model kit stands nearly 9 inches tall (1/100 scale) and has multiple points of articulation including legs that fold up allowing the cockpit to rest on the ground. The Gear is comprised of 600 pre-colored pieces and is recommended for experienced model builders. Also included are four 1/100th scale figures of game characters, allowing for the recreation of scenes from the game.
The Metal Gear Rex model kit is slated for release in January 2013 priced at a SRP of $79.99. Check out our gallery below for tons of new photos.
