Union Creative mensHdge Technical Statue No.16 - Metal Gear Solid V - Venom Snake

Venom Snake (ヴェノム・スネーク Venomu Sunēku), originally introduced as Punished Snake (パニッシュド・スネーク Panishudo Sunēku) in the E3 2013 trailer and credited as Punished "Venom" Snake in the game, is the lead playable character in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Within the narrative, he is the leader of the fictional mercenary unit "Diamond Dogs". Throughout the game, Venom Snake is referred to as the legendary soldier Big Boss, but the ending of Episode 46 (titled "Truth: The Man Who Sold The World") reveals that he is actually another character whose true name, appearance and date of birth are chosen by the player at the start of the game, and who has been transformed into Big Boss's doppelgänger via plastic surgery and brainwashing.

From Union Creative comes this 9 3/4 inches tall figure of Metal Gear Solid V's leading man featuring super-detailed equipment and weaponry to recreate the tension of the game.

"This isn't about the past...We're fighting for the future."

From the latest hit addition to the METAL GEAR series, 'METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN' comes a new figure of Venom Snake as part of the mensHdge technical statue range!

Why has no one reviewed this yet? Looks like the best representation of Venom we'll be getting. This is also the only Venom figure I've found with a removable scarf, yet there are hardly any pictures of him with his accessories removed. So weird, but I'll be picking this guy up very soon!
