A Comparison of Naked Snake & Other Medicom figures

Just wanted to do a comparison of the various Medicom 1/6 bodies thus far: Medicom "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" Han Solo (full review HERE) and Medicom "Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater" Naked Snake (pictures HERE). Both are of the same height but Han's head is bigger. Skin colour also painted differently.


Medicom Han Solo, Naked Snake and a much taller Hideki Go, MAT (Monster Attack Team) member and Ultraman Jack in human form. I wonder if Manchester United drew inspiration from him for their new football jersey this year. I had also done a line-up of the Ultra Guard HERE, comparing body types

Added Medicom 1/6 scale Star Wars Clone Trooper which is taller than their Boba Fett and Jango Fett and almost as tall as the Medicom Darth Vader.

The Medicom Star Wars Clone Trooper and Han Solo; they are actually worlds apart in the Star Wars universe, although George Lucas slipped in a shot of the Millennium Falcon docking in Episode III

Medicom Star Wars Clone Trooper and Medicom RAH (Real Action Heroes) MAT (Monster Attack Team) member Hideki Go, Ultraman Jack in human form

Two fellow space beings but from totally different universe - space pirate Medicom RAH Captain Harlock (キャプテンハーロック Kyaputen Hārokku) (Full review HERE) and Hideki Go. Captain Harlock is much taller and slimmer, one of those new bodies created by Medicom - comparative pictures of the new Harlock and the much older version HERE

How they compare with Naked Snake (Cold War version)

See the difference in height

And here's Naked Snake standing next to the much taller Raiden, from "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (MGS4)". Full review and pictures HERE

Obviously, my favorite is Han Solo, but Naked Snake really looks cool, too. Normally I'm collecting the 3 3/4 figures, but these seem to be worth considering.

Hi StarWarsFigure guy, 3 3/4 figures cannot have all the details and accessories, including cloth outfits that 12-inch figures allow, which is why I switched to 1/6 altho I do appreciate the smaller figures as vehicles can be made for them and those can be well detailed, like the Star Wars legacy collection Millennium Falcon. CHEERS!

That Hideki Go figure looks interesting... reminds me of the Star Rangers TV series way back 70's/80's (?) :) Headsculpt great.
