Metal Gear Sahelanthropus Black Version by Kotobukiya available for pre-order now

Pre-orders for Kotobukiya’s black colored Metal Gear Sahelanthropus are now open. The package contains a plastic model kit, which you will have to put together yourself. Once assembled, it will measure around 355mm in height (1/100 scale), and it’ll come with four (unpainted) figurines: Venom Snake, Skull Face, Eli and Tretij Rebenok.



For people outside Japan, the figure can be ordered at CDJapan. The set will release in June of this year and will cost around €100.

Kotobukiya made a standard colored version earlier, which you can see here.

    I bet it’s much harder to put together than the standard coloured version.

    But we never saw that shield.

    • Solidus

      It appears when Eli escapes.

      The shield was there when Eli escapes from Motherbase with the child soldiers. The shield makes an appearance in the Mission 51 cutscene as well.

      I’m guessing Huey decided to make some improvements on ST-84 when Snake brought it back to Motherbase by adding a shield.

  • Just logged in to re-follow Metal Gear Informer on Disqus after 8 months of complete self induced coma/blackout from the internet in order to avoid any possible spoiler on the Last Hideo Kojima Game published by Konami (…?) and with this one on the “humanoid version” of the Metal Gear Rex I’ve just finished to recover all the news I’ve lost during this period via the archive of this superb site which became more and more enjoyable thanks to the fans posting in it: btw, the new look is perfect 😉

    • Gatsu
