Though equally impressive as the rest of the MGS installments i am not a big fan of Snake Eater's character designs (well, except for Adamska a.k.a. Young Ocelot) - Cobra Unit = Meh. Maybe that's the reason why i intended to pass getting into the 1/6 MGS line. However, rumors looming of a possible Solid Snake and Raiden Hot Toys solidified my resolve to get Naked Snake, after all, Snake Eater is where it all technically began.
I've seen the brown shipper box before but it's the first time i had a figure packed inside it. Not a biggie but it's reassuring of the figure's (and box) quality. Naked Snake's armory is impressive and you gotta love the small thingies included such as the Ration Can, Grenades, Claymore Mine, Binoculars, etc. on top of the classic M16, Pistol with detachable suppressor and machine gun. My only gripe was that the heavy machine gun's front/crosshair part was damaged straight out of the box. Not noticeable and it ain't that big anyway so it's ok. So much for quality control though...
Poseability is pretty good though like i mentioned i dare not put too much stress on his fabrics for fear of tearing them. Perhaps i'll pull some CQC poses next time when i get the chance. I'm missing the feet swivels though since his boots do not have those PAK features thereby limiting his angled feet poses.
Greattoys Online and i hope to get The Boss figure very soon. The MGS fanboy in me really wish to review her. If you are an MGS fan i suggest you get Naked Snake. Not planning to get Video Game Masterpiece figures from Hot Toys but hell yeah! This is Naked Snake. He's my goddamn father after all (ahem...i'm Solid Quokka by the way...)
