1/100 Metal Gear Rex English Manual & Color Guide

1/100 Metal Gear Rex Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Kotobukiya comes the 1/100 Metal Gear Rex scale model kit from the Metal Gear franchise. You have to give it to the makers of the first nintendo game of this to come out with such a direct but simultaneously veiled name for the main antagonist.

Missed completing this game but found a walkthrough that just put me in nostalgic bliss. I didn't get to play the Play Station version of this but I remember being blown away by the graphics of this when I passed by a friends house and watched him play this game.

The 1/100 Metal Gear Rex is selling for $$$ at Amazon, 6240 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 6630 yen at Hobby Search.
