NCS Product Synopsis
Update: September 14, 2009
«©NCSX» Solid Snake or just "Snake" strikes an imposing figure when garbed in dark combat fatigues and camouflage. Gruff, surly, and overly serious, Snake usually has a cigarette pursed between his lips. We think he's smoking a Marlboro but there's no way in hell it's a Pall Mall. Snake's dark garb is conducive to stealth and sneaky tactics when he does those things that he does.
Medicom's latest rendition of Snake (well, Big Boss really... but they're clones anyway) for their renowned Real Action Heroes figure series takes inspiration from Metal Gear Solid 3 and puts our favorite special ops wunderkind in a decidedly flamboyant outfit. The bright orange utilitarian uniform that Snake's wearing basically screams "Look at me!" at the top of its lungs and the yellow hammer and sickle etched across the front connotes cold war Mother Russia.
The new RAH Naked Snake figure measures 30cm or 11.81" tall and is equipped with the usual accoutrements needed for a special ops mission. Please note the figure is limited to only 1000 units.
Upon opening up the cardboard enclosure that holds Naked Snake, fans will lift out a plastic retainer that keeps the toy secure. Snake's snugly sandwiched between two plastic trays and he's accompanied by three extra hands and a SA 1911A1 Operator firearm with a suppressor attached to the barrel.
Snake's outfitted in his orange outfit and he's strapped with the usual Metal Gear Solid RAH accoutrements which hold the gear he needs to get the job done. A CQC (Close Quarters Combat) knife situated inside a holder is wrapped around Snake's right leg and may be gripped by Snake's hands. The Real Action Heroes series is impeccable like that.
