August 30, 2016

venom (9)

Venom Snake, the playable character of “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” is proudly recreated as 1/6 scale statue.
The painful scars suffered from XOF attack in the end of “Ground Zeroes” are faithfully sculpted on the face, and the skin texture is very realistic. Furthermore, the paint technique enhances the character’s aging facial expression.
His combat uniform has an amazing amount of details from the subtle wrinkles to the complex camouflage paint pattern. Every detail of this character has been captured faithfully by all artists involved.
The small accessories, such as porches, belts and water bottle, are made by hand whereas the rifle and bionic arm are sharply sculpted by digital.
Venom Snake can be displayed with or without the scarf according to your preference.
The display base is the same stage as the Quiet statue, the Aabe Shifap Ruins.
This is the ultimate Venom Snake statue, combining both his relaxed posture smoking the Phantom Cigar and capturing his tension keenly scanning the environment.

Daniel Pickett

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since.

In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features.

He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced.

In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com.

Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s
“Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com,
Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official
Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many
others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows.

But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    I’m not liking the new paint color on the clothing. The initial images showed the Tiger Stripe camo from the game which went perfect with the desert colors and design of the base. Now the camo is dark green which doesn’t match the desert theme at all. I’ve already pre-ordered it but will not be happy if this is how it turns out. Overall it looks amazing but that one detail will always annoy me.
