Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I can’t keep up with the constant changes in temperature… how am I supposed to choose what to wear in the morning?! Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Raiden: MGS2 Ver.!

From METAL GEAR SOLID 2: SONS OF LIBERTY comes a Nendoroid of the main character of the Plant chapter, Raiden! His face almost too beautiful for a solider has been faithfully shrunk into Nendoroid size, looking cuter than ever before!

Optional parts include his hand gun and assault rifle, a cardboard box as well as a naked body allowing you to recreate various popular scenes from the game! A special expression drawn for the Nendoroid by Yoji Shinkawa, the game’s art director, is also included!

Just like the previously released Nendoroid Solid Snake, he has special articulation allowing him to bend forward, which allows you to pose him prone to recreate even more of your favorite scenes! Have Raiden infiltrate your collection, and enjoy the cuteness of the Nendoroid world merged with the amazing designs from the game!


Following on from the previously released Nendoroid Solid Snake  comes yet another character from the Metal Gear Solid series – the silent soldier with a rather impressive body, Raiden is joining the Nendoroids!

His confident eyes have been faithfully Nendorofied down to the eyebrows!

It’s not just his face that has been beautifully sculpted though! His impressive body is also definitely worth the look! ε=(。・д・。)

Even over his suit you can see just how impressive that six pack is!

I also adore the shape of his left hand here!

The hand looks like it fits into the gloves perfectly, but at the same time they are so cute and puffy looking! By the way, even though this product does not have ‘Edition’ in its name… it’s actually fully articulated! Much more mobile than most Nendoroids!! (。・ω・)ノ゙

The chest area features special articulation that allows you to take various action poses, or just pose him with his chest out to match his confident gaze! The connections for the arms are also ball joints allowing them to be placed at any angle to match your pose… or even pose him holding the included assault rifle like so! ♪

△ This angle also shows the difference of the flow of his back and front hair!
It looks so smooth and flowing…! (/ω\)

His elbows, knees and even hips can be moved around allowing for all the fun and inventive poses that we saw with Nendoroid Solid Snake!

Plus! This time around a very special expression part is being included!!

Illustrated by the game’s art director, Yoji Shinkawa himself!

Oooooooooohhh!! (´□`。)

Those eyes!! They’re too amazing!!

The figure’s planner, Enon-shi went to Shinkawa-san and asked if he would be willing to draw an expression… or even just eyes for the Nendoroid!

This is what came back in response…!

A big thank you to Shinkawa-san!! 

But that’s not all… he also comes with a sword for some close combat as well!

△ It’s so easy to take action poses with full articulation!

The sword is also designed to slip inside the scabbard on his back, allowing you to pose him like this instead! (●´ω`●)

△ How can such a simple standing pose from the back look so epic…?

By the way, the scabbard parts attach to Raiden’s back where the stand normally connects, then the stand connects into the scabbard parts! Smart!

This keeps the scabbard firmly in place to make sure it doesn’t get in the way of any of your poses! φ(.. )

Anyway, this means that three weapons are included! ☆ 

・Hand Gun
・Assault Rifle
・Katana Sword

Simply pick the weapon that you think suits him best! ♪

However we’re still not done! There is still one other part I have to introduce!

Here we go!!

A Naked Body!!

Special parts that allow you to recreate the scene where he was captured as a prisoner in the game! (/ω\)

This way you can enjoy his amazing body even closer than before!!

Even as a chibi Nendoroid body all the muscles on his body have been carefully sculpted!

You can even try this expression together with the body…

He- He’s so… manly!!

Also note that the dog tag around his neck has been faithfully included!

I do apologise… but note that his hands are not movable! ^^;

Definitely a part that will surely be of all sorts of fun for Nendoroid collectors… I’m sure it would be very fun to try out on some other characters too! (*´Д`)=з

Just like Snake he also comes with a Nendoroid size cardboard box! ♥︎ 

△ The articulated chest allows for this pose too!

Enjoy all sorts of different scenes from the game!
