Many would agree that Metal Gear Solid on Playstation 1 was revolutionary, but for me the experience was very personal. Metal Gear Solid was the first game that I have completed on my own. Onward, the Metal Gear series becomes one of my favourite video game franchise. Solid Snake himself becomes a legend in video game. So when Solid Snake is deformed into a nendoroid, it is definitely good news.
Solid Snake comes with several iconic accessories. The weapons, for example, is the SOCOM Pistols and FAMAS rifle. Both are basic weapon for Solid Snake during his mission in Shadow Moses Island. For the sake of old times (I think), this nendoroid also comes with a pixelated head like the original Solid Snake used to look like. It kind of make sense to not have him with multiple faceplate because well..Solid Snake did not have that many face expression back in those old times.
What I really like about this particular nendoroid is the movable joints. I am absent from collecting nendoroids for quite some time and I did not know if the current nendos are equipped with these joints. It is really good for figure photography and it decrease the number of body parts in a set of nendoroid. These movable joints allows nendo Solid Snake to pose drop on his knee while receiving a codec transmission.
Oh, and one more thing, it is not Solid Snake if he quits smoking…
