1/100 Scale Metal Gear Rex Model Kit
A Kotobukiya Japanese import. The first Metal Gear Solid game was released on PlayStation in 1998 and featured stealth action as directed by Hideo Kojima. A massive commercial success, "MGS" has gone on to include sequels and stories told through several other media. Some of the coolest things about the series are the Metal Gears themselves, walking tanks equipped with nuclear weapons.
Now Kotobukiya proudly presents a model kit of the ultimate Gear from MGS, METAL GEAR REX. Designed by Yoji Shinkawa, REX stands on massively armored legs and wields a huge rail gun in addition to gatling guns, missiles, and a laser. The aerodynamic main body has a forward pointing cockpit and a radome to send the pilot additional data.
The REX model kit stands nearly 9 inches tall (1/100 scale).The Gear is comprised of 600 pre-colored pieces and is recommended for experienced model builders. Also included are four 1/100th scale figures of game characters, allowing for the recreation of scenes from the game

- rail gun
The overall kit is a solid build and stands/poses great with the included base. Only downside, which is minor, is that for the camouflage, you must paint that on yourself. A painting guide is included in the instruction booklet. This is coming from someone who builds Gundam kits that dont need painting. Otherwise great recreation of Rex.
A very nice build. Some of the ball joints are as little too tight, so be careful, especially with the ball and socket of the rail gun. No paint or glue even really necessary but it doesn't hurt in some spots.
