A Look Back at the Play Arts Kai Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Snake Figure
The Play Arts Kai Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Snake Figure is infused with the rich detail and slick styling worthy of the fictional video game icon that inspired it. Despite being released nearly a year ago, the figure remains a spot-on depiction of gamings perennial special operative as he appeared in 2014s Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC).
Play Arts Kais Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Snake Figure features a detailed sculpt and painted finish. The robust resin figure is pleasingly articulated (20 points) with sturdy joints throughout the arms, legs, feet, torso, and neck that should prove durable enough to endure extensive manipulation and posing. In addition, many of the straps, belts, and pouches are built to bend and flex which lends the piece a much more lifelike appearance.
The Play Arts Kai Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Snake Figure comes with an equally impressive cache of accessories. The alternate interchangeable head allows Snake to be displayed wearing night vision head-gear; while the addition of three swappable hands enable him to wield his knife, pistol, and suppressed assault rifle. The latter is particularly impressive, featuring both a folding stock and flexible strap which permit the nearly 6-inch weapon to be slung realistically about his body. Rounding out the set is an elaborate 15-piece display stand for those collectors intent on posing or suspending Snake dynamically.
Although prices vary, collectors can snag Play Arts Kai’s superlative Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Snake Figure at retail within the typical range of $80 to $100 USD.
