Originally released in 2004, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater has experienced a resurgence of late due to its recent re-release on Nintendo 3DS, not to mention its inclusion on last fall's Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection (which is coming to PlayStation Vita in the near future). But the beloved action-adventure game will make a very different kind of appearance soon, as Hot Toys has revealed plans to release two 1/6-scale figures based on the game's iconic final battle.
As seen in the images below, Hot Toys is making figures of lead character Naked Snake (Sneaking Suit Version) and antagonist The Boss, with each including a wide array of weapons; and in Snake's case, a cardboard box to sneak around in. Official release details and pricing haven't been announced, but you can scope out a slew of additional photos of the figures at Hot Toys' Facebook page, and we'll share the details as they come.
