Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes – Raiden

raiden_W_caption_gecco_07

Gecco has announced a San Diego Comic Con Exclusive - the Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes "Jamais Vu" Raiden 1/6th scale statue. The figure will be released on July 8th 2015 at the Gecco SDCC booth. This Raiden figure in white armor is from the extra ops mission "Jamais Vu" of Metal Gear Solid V.

In contrast to the familiar clean shiny black armor of MGRR Raiden, this exclusive white version tells the story of his fierce battles, highlighting his damaged armor. It includes a giant rocket launcher and assault rifle. The eye glows red with a mounted LED in the head.

You'll be able to pick one up for $195.00. And if you can't get to San Diego, Ultra Tokyo Connection will have the figure available to pre-order.

Retro Review: Toys from the 1980’s

So Plastic and Plush turns 10 this year. Most folks don’t know that I actually started and ran a now defunct toy news site called Toytoons.com (way back in 2002) before creating this one. The concept was fairly simple. I’d review old toys I snagged off of eBay, Happy Meal prizes and the awful food I had to eat to get them, and randomly purchased cheap toys my wife usually picked up wherever she was shopping that day. The content eventually morphed into covering the “Designer Toy Scene” and now it pretty much runs the gambit of collectible toy geekery.

I was recently inspired to get back to my roots. To revisit why the site was originally created. Plus, I thought it would be a great way to pick up some old toys from yesteryear…that I remember playing with as a kid. So ready yourself for some Retro Review: Toys from the 1980’s. I’m hoping to make this a weekly post, but it all comes down to how much old crap I can buy before my wife starts yelling at me.

There’s only one caveat. All of the toys will be mint-in-box or mint-on-card because I don’t want a toy several generations of children have slobbered all over. You never know where that Go Bot was shoved or how many time Cobra Commander was dropped in a urine filled toilet.
