After about two weeks of painting and delays my Metal Gear REX from Kotobukiya is finally finished. It was certainly a nice change of pace from working on Gunpla and I'm really glad how things turned out. REX really is a fine kit and I feel like I treated him well. For those interested in a full review of the kit, or to see the before photos, click here.
I'm a bit late to the party but nonetheless decided that Kotobukiya's Metal Gear REX needed a proper review. Just released toward the end of December this 1/100 scale kit retails for $87. It's smaller than I thought it would be for that price tag, coming in at about 7-8 inches tall. It's also incredibly smaller than Three A's 1/48 scale release but a much better prospect for many considering Three A REXs retailed for $470 (most on eBay are now going for $700-800).
