Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I have a strange urge to build a secret base out of cardboard boxes… then I will hide inside away from the world for the rest of today! ╭( ・ㅂ・)و ̑̑
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Solid Snake!
|From “METAL GEAR SOLID” comes a Nendoroid of the main character of the series, the infiltration specialist ‘Solid Snake’! The rough look of his character has been preserved while still giving him the cuter appearance provided by the Nendoroid design!
He is the first ever Nendoroid designed to be posed in a prone position, allowing you to display him sneaking around just like in the game! Optional parts include his handgun, an assault rifle as well as a cardboard box to keep him hidden! An optional low-polygon face part is also included, allowing fans of the original game to enjoy the classic Snake once again!
The sneaky Snake is joining the Nendoroid series in possibly his cutest form ever! But that said… his muscles are still rather impressive!! (ﾟＡﾟ;)
Snake’s fit physical form has been kept in place even through the change into Nendoroid form! ♥
Let’s take a peek at how he looks from the back! ♪
His bandana flutters about behind him!
The bandana is attached with a little ball joint allowing you to adjust the angle to match whatever pose you want! The back pouch on his hips is also nicely detailed! (｀・ω・´)
However! How many of you noticed the other change I made with this photo?! Here is a hint…
He comes with two different guns!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
Yep! The first photo has him displayed holding his handgun, while the second has him equipped with the much larger assault rifle!! The fact that he still keeps his collected appearance in chibi size is the best!
For those of you that want a closer look at the assault rifle…
Here you go!!
/ Polygon! \
That’s not just an assault rifle, it’s also a very different face!! Snake comes complete with a low-polygon face part to recreate the classic PS1 version of Snake! Not only that, but it’s also made using the actual 3D data from the original PS1 game!
This is how it looks from the side!
Just like the original! Σ(ﾟ∀ﾟﾉ)ﾉ
It’s amazingly nostalgic and strangely cute all at once! ♪
Definitely a part unique to Snake!
(・∀・) “There are many more parts rather unique to Snake!!”
We’re joined by Snake’s planner, Enon!!
(・∀・) “Here are a few other options you’re not likely to see on other Nendoroids!
#1: The Communicating Pose!
I know this pose!!
(・∀・) “He specially comes with an alternate left leg part allowing you to pose him communicating while on a mission!
Even his hand is posed as if supporting the ear piece! ♪
#2: The Cardboard Box!
(・∀・) “It wouldn’t have been Snake if this part wasn’t included! The box’s design is the exact same box that Nendoroid Snake is planned to ship out in too!”
The design for the boxes that products will be shipped out in are generally only done around when the product is ready to ship… but Snake’s was planned a little in advance just for this! ﾍ(ﾟ∀ﾟ*)ﾉ
(・∀・) “Yep! The sides and lid are all just a miniaturized version of the actual design!”
But… does he fit inside?
Can you pose Snake inside the box?!
#3: Pose him Prone!
(・∀・) “Of course he can fit inside! Noone will suspect a thing!”
He looks rather cute peeking out!
Plus he seems to be in an interesting stance…
(・∀・) “Everyone who has played the game will know just how important the ability to go prone is! Snake comes with a special addition to his torso which allows him to take slightly more difficult poses like this, that wouldn’t normally be possible on Nendoroids!”
I see, I see!!
The extra bend in his torso allows for this sneaky pose!! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)
(・∀・) “Moving his arms up to underneath his chin adds even more of a sneaky look to the pose too!”
I want to display him sneaking around all sorts of places in my room!
#3: The Cigarette!
(・∀・) “Another item necessary to display Snake in some of the awesome poses he deserves!”
The pose almost looks too epic for him to be a Nendoroid!! (； ･`ω･´)
He’s too cool for meeee!!! っ(*´Д`)
(・∀・) “So many different posing options, and even an extra head for a brush of nostalgia!”
He’ll be ready to infiltrate your collection soon! ♪
Nendoroid Solid Snake!
He’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!!
(・∀・) “However, this isn’t the end of the Nendoroid Metal Gear series!”
(・∀・) “A Nendoroid of Venom Snake is also in the works!”
(・∀・) “Look forward to it!”
We also can’t forget that Max Factory has announced figma Solid Snake and figma Gurlukovich Solider at WonFes! (o・ω・o)ﾉ
figma Solid Snake: Prototype
Fans of the METAL GEAR series are in for a treat!
