Kotobukiya REX Metal Gear Solid 4 Version gets some more pictures, packaging art shown

Kotobukiya’s latest Metal Gear model kit, REX MGS4 Version, was released in Japan earlier this month, and some new photos have appeared online which show the box it comes in and the parts as you receive them. The illustration was made by sci-fi illustrator and mecha anime artist Hidetaka Tenjin. As this is a model kit, you’ll have to assemble the famous bipedal weapon yourself, as well as paint it (though the package does come with a color guide to assist you). Since this is the REX as seen in MGS4, the machine has been ‘partially destroyed’ as a result of Snake’s efforts in MGS1. For more information and pictures of this kit, visit this page.

    It’s a shame that there isn’t a pre painted version of those things

  • Looks like Kojima had a meeting with Mark (Cerny, presumably). Maybe it has something to do with the PlayStation Experience?

      Right, some cool stuff must be boiling there, he was as well at “PlayStation® Pork” (xD, Yano-style..) 3 days ago. Ordered a likely to big PlayStation® Curry and could not finish it… xD
      I can’t remember his name (will find it later), but there is also at least one former Koji-Pro member that work for SIE Tokyo now, so probably somewhere around. I am sure they are not having only meals, hehe ! ;D

      All I know is I wouldn’t pay more than $5 for that tiny snack. Damn, rich people are crazy.

      Still there… “What take them so long ?”… Ha, I guess I have an idea, since Koji-Pro office is on the other side of the street (according with Andy), then the PS Park cafeteria probably became as well some sort of their lunch cantine at times.

          😀 Thanks Nyx, I saw it too this morning. PlayStation® Cantine confirmed !
          Even if chances are low since they did not really communicate for example about what we want in Koji-Tube 6 and now seeing Yano-San, I am now wondering if they’ll keep it for December or if they finally shot some small stuff to show before TGA+PSX. Dunno, not necessarily DS or KP oriented… But they seemed so busy that I would not be surprised if they publish nothing on YT..

          Time for fresh meat now, this silence weights tons.. ;D

    Again, REX forever… Cheers to the most badass mecha ever created !

    Since you asked recently for some polls ideas, and after checking you did not surveyed this before in the polls archives, I think I finally have a fancy one :

    Favorite Metal Gear mecha ? (if convinced, please don’t forget to include Arsenal and MK-II of course !)

    • That’s a good idea!

        And of course Saly… Needless to say, but it is unfortunately not on this awesome poster.

        • Interesting that this image also lists Outer Haven. Which ones do you think should be on the list? Haven, Gekko and Tripod as well? This is the list so far, but what exactly constitutes to being a ‘metal gear’?

          Metal Gear TX-55
          Metal Gear G
          Metal Gear D
          Metal Gear RAXA
          Metal Gear REX
          Metal Gear RAY
          Metal Gear ZEKE
          Metal Gear EXCELSUS
          Arsenal Gear
          Gekko
          MK-II
          Tripod
          Outer Haven
          Shagohod
          Pupa
          Chrysalis
          Cocoon
          Peace Walker
          Sahelanthropus

            Good question, so far a nuclear warhead enabled AI or pilotable / controllable bi-pedal mecha, was the kind of description that was sticking for a long time, but since bots like Gekko or MK-II are also considered as MGs but without nukes, the list become hereby quite exhaustive…
            Outer and Arsenal also have AI… Not simple.

            I guess the key can be in how we formulate the question then, like :

            “Which Metal Gear technology / design is your favorite ?”

            If you want to ask it this way, then I think you can include all of them.
            BTW, we forgot Battle and Walker Gears, Basilik, Kodoque, Gander, Chaioth Ha Qadesh…
            If we restrain to Solid, or a specific group, canon or not, we may unfortunately lock out other awesome Yoji’s MG designs, what do you think ? ;D

          • Yeah probably better to have some sort of boundary. Maybe just the final boss machines from Kojima’s games? So that would mean TX-55, Metal Gear D, REX, RAY, Shagohod, Peace Walker, ZEKE and Sahelanthropous.

            Sounds quite fair and way less messy indeed.
            I vote REX ! ;D

    • Gekko in that image is small but was amazing in MGS4. I really liked the idea of smaller Metal Gear’s not just gigantic mecha’s.

    • Salad Snack

      REX and RAY <3

      (the Shagohod isn't rly a Metal Gear though….if you think about it, MGS3 should probably be called "Shagohod Naked" or sth like that… 😀 )

    • New poll is up! Hopefully everyone is ok with the selection, but REX is going to win anyway. 😛

        Thanks !
        Guess for which one I voted. 😛

        Not sure you already wrote one, but I suppose you could later on consider posting a great analysis of yours regarding the various MG techs, with illustrations… Could be nice, using either sketches or captures from various sources such as this one :

        All the Best !
