Whether you liked Platinum Games’ fresh take on the Metal Gear franchise or not, you have to admit that this action figure of Raiden from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is fan-fricking-tastic.

The 1/6th scale Raiden figure, based on the current not-final prototype, stands approximately 32CM tall (that’s a little taller than a foot) and features 30 points of articulation, an intricately detailed metallic black cyborg body, and realistic skin texturing. He also comes with a wealth of accessories, including a high-frequency blade (with sheath), a dagger, an assault rifle, four interchangeable hand options for posing and equipping the assorted weaponry, an interchangeable foot for holding the blade, two visors (opened and closed), and a pair of interchangeable chest armor pieces. In select markets, a special edition HF Murasama blade and sheath will also be included.

Thanks go to collectible action figure purveyor Hot Toys for giving this wonderful gift to all video game toy collectors. It won’t be available until late 2014 or early 2015, but it’s totally worth waiting for.
