Hello everyone and welcome to my FIGMA Solid Snake MGS2 Ver. review

First off lets take a look at the box

Over here we have the standard Pro style FIGMA box design with pictures of the character(Solid Snake in this case). If you guys did not noticed by the pictures, my box came with a bit of damage. Here some close up pictures

Fortunately they are not that noticeable and the box itself can still be used for decoration without no problem whenever the mood strikes. Thats it for the box and now lets take a look at the figure

The Figure

Just before we get our first quick view of the figure I must point out that this release has somewhat received a bit of criticism. people have reported having terrible face sculpts and green-ish sneaking suits. Now with that in mind lets proceed forward and see what we got.

After a quick look to the figure and I must say those issues are non existent on mine. The figure looks impressive, the face captures that amazing Yoji Shinkawa artwork, and the sneaking suit has been recreated faithfully to the source material. Now lets take an in depth closer look.

The head

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Wq-pG5ydJnY/Vrz_RkyTKlI/AAAAAAAAAHE/gWpVZLt6lUM/s320/IMG_0230.jpg
https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-53FwJ8TLpLE/Vrz_R8ObXwI/AAAAAAAAAHI/OgAMDFf1Y24/s320/IMG_0231.jpg

I'm very satisfied with the face. As I mentioned above the face captures the original artwork of Shinkawa. The hair sculpt and paint is fantastic, the badass mullet that only Solid Snake has was made justice. But before we finish this section there is an important thing that some people have complained about their figure. One of the biggest flaws that are pointed out on this release is that there is a big gap between the face of the prototype picture on the box and the mass produced version. Lets check that out.

And yes that is the case on my figure as well. But in my case I dont consider that to be a bad thing since I prefer the face of the figure I got instead of the one of the box picture. I prefer the more calm expression unlike the aggressive one on the box because it is more character accurate. And with that we finish the head section and lets move to the body.

The sculpt is amazing, From the muscles to the wrinkles at certain spots, to the paint application with the right shading the sneaking suit has faithfully been recreated on a figure form.

In terms of articulation he lacks nothing. But it does not end there, Snake being the sneaky operative that he is he comes with some articulation options that stand out.

Bandanna Articulation

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-q_7p1KR1GUo/Vrz_ba1_QpI/AAAAAAAAAHc/eteZqKTNZeI/s320/IMG_0236.jpg
https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Uw2DLGCYJV4/Vrz_b1PfprI/AAAAAAAAAHg/goRvrAIITQ8/s320/IMG_0237.jpg

His bandanna has an articulation point that moves it slightly. For those poses that simulate the blowing of the wind

Eye articulation

https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-06L4aGhe3oc/Vr0DoihpabI/AAAAAAAAAIk/_FtQaeC4iFo/s320/IMG_0249.jpg

With the use of a stick that he comes with his eyes can be moved. I did this once and it worked, but it felt rather fragile and I wont do it again.

Mullet Articulation

https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9IWPJY0u3LQ/Vr0DvrMJ3aI/AAAAAAAAAIw/6rmWpQTliws/s320/IMG_0254.jpg
https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cdFf6smOS5k/Vr0Dy0MiPyI/AAAAAAAAAI4/bEmSAzEUBWw/s320/IMG_0255.jpg

This point of articulation really has no use. Since his head does not look that much up in order to such point of articulation to be needed. He uses an interesting chest articulation to actually look up, in which we will see a bit later on

Shoulder articulation

https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-EtyvDRF1vGo/Vr0DW-eB7RI/AAAAAAAAAH0/RcF27RpLJqk/s320/IMG_0239.jpg
https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-vGupfoQfis0/Vr0DW-MMgAI/AAAAAAAAAH4/LthqCKEBGoI/s320/IMG_0240.jpg

His shoulder articulation is basically my favorite articulation point of this figure. I find myself using it constantly posing him. His Shoulders are on a double ball peg allowing to some crazy good amount of motion.

Chest articulation

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Kkvlir5Yx9Q/Vr0Dc2YwnbI/AAAAAAAAAIE/O1bDwHKdKG0/s320/IMG_0242.jpg
https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-y6oAH_AFgt4/Vr0DdGf3MHI/AAAAAAAAAII/rGdywMEqvF0/s320/IMG_0243.jpg

Aside from the standard chest rotation. This point of articulation can extend in order to look up

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-WKP3PSbFdnM/Vr0DfbBEjMI/AAAAAAAAAIM/K7z6O63PaAg/s320/IMG_0244.jpg

Those are this figure most interesting articulation points, now lts go over to the accessories

https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Ci5Sd96Zr3o/Vr0D2zQNcdI/AAAAAAAAAJE/r0e9ctvKlio/s320/IMG_0258.jpg

As seen in the picture above, he comes with:

Instructions
X2 Fists
X2 Wide spread intense hands
X2 Holding hands
X2 Relaxed/Smoking hands
X2 Hanging hands
1 Gun firing hand
1 Gun with finger removed from trigger hand

Hanging hands with the hanging base

https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-qDm5vJfF1Eo/Vr0Di6YE0RI/AAAAAAAAAIQ/7dnQPUq3LMQ/s320/IMG_0245.jpg

Pretty self explanatory. It lets Snake hang from places

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-KkyeUe_DkCk/Vr0DjG_vgaI/AAAAAAAAAIU/ibvybEMN98M/s320/IMG_0246.jpg

Muzzle fire

https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-sSDtuCK13f0/Vr0Djyrwl3I/AAAAAAAAAIY/ig7OFmGrLJ0/s320/IMG_0247.jpg

A neat accessory for displaying Snake emptying the mag on a foe

Cardboard box


The box, the iconic infiltration item cannot be missed. it comes unfolded and folding it is easy. I use tape to make it all stick together

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3_GNcu-GmGg/Vr0Do4IX3nI/AAAAAAAAAIg/k7D96qWtPVQ/s320/IMG_0250.jpg

Relaxed/Smoking hands with cigarettes

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-rjCpRgRurPQ/Vr0Dqn9DODI/AAAAAAAAAIo/NpAINsqLm3s/s320/IMG_0251.jpg

Great addition. Useful for some badass displays

Solid Snake is that character that will bring the badass factor to any collection. The amount of accessories coupled with the articulation options makes him a very easy figure to lay your eyes at. Plus is the one and only Solid Snake!
