1/100 Metal Gear RAY by Kotobukiya (Available From HobbyLink Japan – HLJ.com)
This is the second plastic kit by Kotobukiya from Metal Gear Solid series. Let’s see what’s inside the box!
Sharp cover art in proper Metal Gear style! The shiny silver background reminds me of Bandai’s titanium kits, but this is even more shiny, which is great for catching your eye on the shelf, but terrible for photos. This isn’t HG or RG Exia, it’s MG by the way.
These two green parts have a tiny bit of pre-painting, and will combine to become the left and right side of the head. 5 figures are included in the same scale, but they don’t go inside anywhere.
For some final thoughts, I think this will be a fun kit to put together, and I’m excited about the amount of details that are carved into the parts. Though the overall look of the body may seem a bit simple, the details hopefully should make up for it. Now the question is, how will they impact the gimmicks and mobility? My only disappointment is naturally with the colors of the kit. The images around the box and manual will really make you want to give the metallic paint job a try. But let’s see how fun the build is, and how it looks right out of the box. Stick around to find out, and thanks for checking this out.
