ThreeA's Metal Gear Rex on sale tonight

12:00 PM on 03.01.2012 // Brian Szabelski

The time is here: ThreeA Toys' Metal Gear Rex goes on sale in just a few hours. Via the special 3AVOX Rex newsletter, we have a ton of photos and some info on its dimensions. The 1/48-scale Rex in its sitting position is 36 cm (14.1 inches) tall, 36 cm (14.1 inches) wide, 50 cm (19.6 inches) long with a 59 cm (23.2 inch) railgun. The railgun will have LED lighting, as will the cockpit and other points on Rex. Articulation exists, but it is a bit limited. Still, are you really going to complain about that?!?!

Again, the price for Rex is US$490 with shipping included. It'll drop in the Bambaland store at 9 a.m. Hong Kong time Friday, which translates to 1 a.m. GMT, 8 p.m. tonight Eastern, 5 p.m. tonight Pacific. I do not expect there will be another release of this for a few reasons (the cost, plus licensing stuff), so this may be your only shot at getting the mech. Are those of you who said you'll be picking him up still going to do so?

[UPDATE: Sideshow Collectibles will be selling Rex as well at a later date, too, apparently. No details yet, but I don't expect it to be a large quantity.]
