metal gear solid figure collection

Post by j.m.ratkos on Wed Aug 27, 2008 5:35 am

this was mainly for pooch, but I figured I would share with everyone here

back in the day, mcfarlane toys (owner: todd mcfarlane, comic artist of the spectacular spider-man, spawn, etc) used to be located near where I live and due to my relationship with the owner of a comic publisher and most of the employees, I was able to nab a complete set of the figures when they were first released.

in addition to the initial 8 figures, 3 (solid snake, the ninja and psycho mantis) were re-released in their camo forms as variants. more rare than those was the 1-off produced (1-off meaning only one figure was produced) (and packaged) in a blue colour as a test run which the employees were kind enough to gift to me since I had authored the initial metal gear solid strategy guide for the ps one.

here are links to a collection of photos of the items:
solid snake variations

I'd buy that 1-off Snake off you. I'm a really big MG collector.

You may have even stumbled upon my website if you're a Metal Gear collector, but no external links are allowed here heh.

If you're at all interested in selling it, let me know.

By the way...are you still writing strategy guides??

violentsnake:
I'll let you know should I decide to free myself of it, however it wouldn't be cheap, being the only one in existence.

sammelhammel:
unfortunately, I haven't written a strategy guide in over 5 years. I tried to get back into it, but it just wasn't in the cards (which is ok, because towards the end, it became just as stressful as my current job).

pascal:
I think I may have just paid for the one camoflauge ninja variant after seeing that it was different than the other one that I had. the rest were all gifted by a friend that worked at mcfarlane toys at the time.


in a semi-related topic, I've finally gotten around to opening my ebay store, so you should see a few choice items up there soon. you'll know if by the store name ^_^
