Metal Gear Solid: Quiet 1/6 Scale Model Kit by Gecco

The painful scars suffered from XOF attack in the end of “Ground Zeroes” are faithfully sculpted on the face, and the skin texture is very realistic. Furthermore, the paint technique enhances the character’s aging facial expression.

His combat uniform has an amazing amount of details from the subtle wrinkles to the complex camouflage paint pattern. Every detail of this character has been captured faithfully by all artists involved.

The small accessories, such as porches, belts and water bottle, are made by hand whereas the rifle and bionic arm are sharply sculpted by digital.

Venom Snake can be displayed with or without the scarf according to your preference. The display base is the same stage as the Quiet statue, the Aabe Shifap Ruins. This is the ultimate Venom Snake statue, combining both his relaxed posture smoking the Phantom Cigar and capturing his tension keenly scanning the environment.

SDCC 2015: Metal Gear Exclusive figure by Gecco

Gecco Corp. has revealed their exclusive figure for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. At this year’s convention, you’ll be able to pick up the Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes “Jamais Vu”/Raiden 1/6 Scale Statue, White Armor Variant.

In contrast to the familiar clean shiny black armor of MGRR Raiden, this exclusive white version tells the story of his fierce battles, highlighting his damaged armor.

His usual weapons, the blades and scabbards, are changed to the giant rocket launcher on his back and the assault rifle in his right hand. The assault rifle can be displayed with or without the suppressor.

The base features sandbags piled high and a fallen sign, representing a classic stage of the video game.
The eye glows red with a mounted LED in the head. The effect of “Augment Mode” is added on the visor.

“Jamus VU” is the extra mission unlocked only after clearing the main story of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Raiden got called in to eliminate the mysterious bioroids known as “Snatchers” that had infiltrated the base by killing people and stealing their identities. The White Armor can be gained after completing this mission on normal difficulty.
