Metal Gear Solid is a stealth action game directed by Hideo Kojima. The game was developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Japan and first published by Konami in 1998 for the PlayStation. It is widely considered to be one of the greatest and most important games of all time, and is heralded as the game that made the stealth genre popular. It is the third canonical title released in the Metal Gear series, being a direct sequel to Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.
REX was the ultimate Metal Gear, as it was not only capable of delivering a nuclear weapon both to and from any point on the globe, it could do so "undetectably" and "untraceably." All previous Metal Gears were merely mobile ground-based launch systems for nuclear missiles, little more than the land-based equivalent of ballistic missile submarines. REX utilized a rail gun, which fired much smaller projectiles without chemical propellants and contained stealth technology – factors which made them virtually invisible to radar. It thus fatally undermined the 'no first strike' principle of Mutually Assured Destruction – whoever controlled it could launch a nuclear attack at any target at any time, with no warning before impact. In addition, its missiles also have enough power to destroy underground bunkers, a lesson that was learned from the Gulf War.

Great! Quick shipping and quality packaging
Fast shipping on a very hard to find product. Well done.
I love the way my kit turned out, it looks amazing and poses great. The only negative is what other reviews have said about the kit, if you're used to the quality of recent Bandai kits, the Kotobukiya will feel very cheap in comparison. I found myself joining pieces with a lot more force than usual and the final result makes for stiffer than usual joints. The good thing is that this in no way reflects in the quality of the molds of the pieces and everything looks 100% uniform where it should be, it's really just the build process that is a bit subpar.
