Toys: threeA’s Metal Gear Rex Finally On The Way

We first saw threeA‘s gorgeous looking Metal Gear Rex exactly two years ago today. But virtually nothing been said or seen ever since. To the point that those who still remember it have naturally assumed that the statue was quietly cancelled. Then earlier this year, threeA passed along a blog post of what looked to be a rail gun, one similar to what Rex was sporting, but which also lights up. A feature that no one knew about, at least based upon the prototype pics.

No further information was given, but at least it was evidence that Rex was still alive. And just a few days ago, another update was provided, with concrete info at long last. Aside from looking better than ever, we can also see that the cockpit and its “eyes” also lights up. A timeframe in which all interested parties was also given: this upcoming January. No word how much it will weigh, but it sure looks heavy, especially since we do know its height: 42 cm, or 16.5 inches.

And according to Ashley Wood, who is not only Hideo Kokjima’s go to illustrator for all things Metal Gear these days (aside from Yoji Shinkawa, of course), but is one of folks who runs the threeA empire: because every part is ABS and requires injection molds, the price tag will be steep. It’s also worth noting that he still considers Rex a toy and simply a statue, which given its size and cost is what most of us were viewing it as. The rumoured price is somewhere between $400-500.

OHOHO Yes! That would be an AWESOME desk piece! Can’t wait for them to get around to light-up Metal Gear Ray of this scale, too.

My god, I love Metal Gear Rex design, i really do so seem theres going to be a piece like this lights my spirit.
Unfortunaly. it being around $500 means i’m going to see in my room, a pity but who knows maybe in the future

Agreed–this looks amazing, and I’m a MGS fan to boot…but the price (and lack of space) means that I will have to give this a pass. Still, I do hope it sells, since it’s clear that a lot of time and effort are being spent to make this toy/statue a damned good one.

That price is a total killer for me too, I usually pay over the odds when I really want something like the Max Guyver’s but 500 buck, naw cant do that, I’d rather spend it on my body living life, than an object I’d look at occasionally.

I find it very interesting. I want to be, but I just do not know. I did not have the money.
