Metal Gear Rex

Hi all:

Metal Gear Rex is from one of my all time favor video-games - Metal Gear Solid. I have been search for it's action figure or toy over the internet. All I can find are paper model or someone built it with Lego which BTW is a really nice work. Even after Metal Gear Solid 4, there is still no news if Rex will be produced as toy. Therefore I decided to build it in 3D and maybe one day I can have it printed for my own collection.

There is not much information on it, except the hand sketches from the MGS artbook but with a lot of discrepancy between each drawings. So I need to improvise some areas.
Currently, it's about 40% done and it has been on hold for a week because of work. There are still quite a few components to be built and wish I can finish it so. I know there are a lot of Metal Gear Rex fans out there and hope you will like it.

Wow! Great work! Very technical modeling, looks like you're making the bluesheets for mass production. Don't forget the RailGun and you can model Fox as well if you want to...

Impressive amount of details
Keep em coming.

I was thinking about modeling rex for a while there. Its the only Gear design worth modeling. I wasnt a big fan of the Gears in MGS4, the ones with the sexy legs. But this is definately a great start.

btw....what types of lights did you use for your renders?

great work so far! I guess everyone knowing metal gear loves the good old Rex When I was younger and playing MGS1 I made the metal gear rex from Lego Do you want to texture him as well? You could make a great scene keep it up

BTW if you print this in 3d, please make one copy for me

3D printing

I have asked my friend in LA who has a 3D printer about the price to print Rex. I want to print it in size around 12" x 12" x 12". He said if I want to keep all the details it will need a high quality printer. And depends on the clean up work, it might cost me around 2 - 4 thousands US dollar. Maybe I should build it with clay......
