Though the San Diego Comic Con is months away, that isn’t stopping companies from making early announcements for the show. First up is Gecco Corp. with its Raiden statue from Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.
RAIDEN in white armor from the extra ops mission “JAMAIS VU” of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES is recreated as the exclusive figure for San Diego Comic-Con 2015.
In contrast to the familiar clean shiny black armor of MGRR RAIDEN, this exclusive white version tells the story of his fierce battles, highlighting his damaged armor.
His usual weapons, the blades and scabbards, are changed to the giant rocket launcher on his back and the assault rifle in his right hand. The assault rifle can be displayed with or without the suppressor.
The base features sandbags piled high and a fallen sign, representing a classic stage of the video game.
The eye glows red with a mounted LED in the head. The effect of “Augment Mode” is added on the visor.
“JAMAUS VU” is the extra mission unlocked only after clearing the main story of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES. RAIDEN got called in to eliminate the mysterious bioroids known as “Snatchers” that had infiltrated the base by killing people and stealing their identities. The White Armor can be gained after completing this mission on normal difficulty.
The price for the 1/6th scale statue is $195.00 and will be released on July 8th at the San Diego Comic Con. If you can’t attend the show, the company has announced a limited number of statues will arrive at Mamegyorai (Japan), Ultra Tokyo Connection (North America), and D4TOYS in other countries at the end of July.
