Metal Gear Sahelanthropus Black Ver.

Figure and model company Kotobukiya will be releasing a plastic model kit of bipedal tank Metal Gear Sahelanthropus with a black paint job from video game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

The model kit is based on the Metal Gear’s appearance in Mission 50: [Extreme] Sahelanthropus, in which the Sahelanthropus is given a charcoal black paint job instead of its normal shade of blue. The completed figure can transform between an upright position and a hunched-over “REX mode” resembling the Metal Gear REX, and features a skull-patterned head decal and an easy-to-paint, monochromatic color scheme.

The kit comes with several accessories, including archaea blades, archaea grenades, a custom shield, and a display base. Also included are unpainted figures of Venom Snake, Skull Face, Eli, and Tretij Rebenok, the latter of which is posed in a sitting position.

The 1/100th scale model kit measures approximately 355 millimeters tall when upright, and retails for 15,800 yen, plus tax. It will be released in June.
