The Reformatted R-17 Carnifex is currently priced at $184.99 USD with an expected ship time of July 2016.

Max Factory sneaks in a box full of figma Solid Snake details and photos

Metal Gear fans are finally getting the Solid Snake figure they’ve waited nearly 30 years for. Sure, there have been other Snake action figures, but figma Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid 2 is certainly aiming to be the best. The figma style of super articulation wouldn’t be enough for Max Factory. Oh no. They’ve aimed to make a Solid Snake that can do just about everything he can do in the games.

Starting from the head this figure will feature the rarely seen figma eye articulation allowing Snake to have his eyes pointed in any direction, perfect for looking around corners or down the sights of a gun. He’ll have two expressions, either a stoic expression that can be used any number of ways with the eye articulation, or another with his teeth grit for really turning up the intensity (but doesn’t have eye articulation). He also has a hidden flap in his hair that allows him to extend the range of his neck and lift his head up further, ideal for army crawling or sniping. 

Moving down the line he comes with a few specialized hands for gun gripping. One of the hands has a finger shaped for wrapping around the trigger, but the other lets him rest his finger on the side of the gun. He also has a special hand holding a cigarette for a little downtime. But the most interesting is a pair of hands specially made to allow him to hang from edges by his fingertips!

For weapons he’ll come with a tranquilizer gun and an assault rifle complete with muzzle flash effect part. Of course he wouldn’t be nearly complete without a cardboard (or in this case heavy paper) box to hide inside! But that’s not all, when pre-orders open in Japan Friday (effectively Thursday night in North America) the Good Smile online shop will have an exclusive release featuring a second handgun with removable silencer and, best of all, a reproduction of the actual figma box used to ship these figures to stores! That’s got to be the best figma exclusive yet.

Unfortunately they’ve stopped short of telling us exactly how big he’ll be and his price, but they’ve clearly left us a lot to look forward to when he’s released in May. In the meanwhile checkout the gallery and take a look at our exclusive close-up looks at the prototype from New York Comic Con 2014.

Check out the first colored pics of MP Bumblebee and lots of new Magnus details

Thanks to a new magazine scan from Planet Iacon we’re finally getting to see Masterpiece Bumblebee is full color for the first time. He’s looking great and while he isn’t 100% cartoon accurate he is about as accurate as we’re ever going to get. Looking at his car mode it’s easy to forget that real Volkswagen Beatles don’t look like the squashed version of the original toy and cartoon. It’s actually pretty impressive that they managed to keep him fairly in scale in both bot and car mode; all that extra stuff on his back paid off. Of course he’ll also come with a fully transforming figure of Spike in his exo suit when he’s released in November for ¥6,000.

We’ve also got a bunch of new shots of MP Ultra Magnus from a bunch of angles and even mid-transformation! He’s looking super complex, with tons of folding parts in his legs and body. Even more interesting is confirmation that his cab, which is nearly identical to Optimus Prime, is removable from the trailer. That just adds to my hope that a white Prime figure will will be sold separately later that can be used in its place. It’s going to be a long wait for December!
