- Now that Metal Gear Solid
2 is finally out, McFarlane Toys has finally put this
awesome series of figures on the shelves. It's easy to understand
why they waited, because two of the character's present have
been held back in secret, so as not to spoil any of the major
secrets from the game. Anyone who purchased the figures from
the last game will want to get their hands on these.
Anyone who was impressed with the quality with the last series
will be as equally impressed with this new line. Each figure
is greatly detailed. McFarlane manages to keep the bar for
quality at a high level. Also, if you get all six, you can
piece together the Metal Gear Ray. For this alone, I believe
a number of collectors will get multiple sets of this series.
While the figures themselves are awesome, I would say that
they are like a lot like previous McFarlane lines, great to
look at, but definitely "no-play". This is not to say that
they couldn't handle a little re-enactment time, but I'm quite
sure that collectors and enthusiasts will buy the bulk of
If I have any requests out of this series, it's for more
figures. With so many pivotal characters in the game, a set
of six only seems to scratch the surface. I thought the set
of eight for MGS just barely captured the cast of that game.
Since there seem to be more players in the plot for Metal
Gear Solid 2, I can only hope to see a new set including Otacon,
Campbell, and some of the villains.
one to be outdone by anyone else, McFarlane Toys has released
shots of the new line of figures based on the sequel to Metal
Gear Solid. Apparently, each of the six(or seven) figures
will come with a piece of the larger Metal Gear Ray, which
you can assemble together (kind of like a Transformer).
Current shots only reveal characters shown in the demo, namely
Snake, Revolver Ocelot and Olga, the female in fatigues. Photos
that are already circulating attest to an even greater attention
to detail. Even as Konami is raising the level of quality
in their PS2 sequel, it appears that McFarlane is doing the
same for the figures. Expect these figures to be a step above
of the competition and even most of McFarlane's own products
that are out on the market today.
