New Psycho Mantis Statues Are A Must-Have For Metal Gear Solid Fans
Despite the infamous falling out between publisher Konami and series creator Hideo Kojima, the Metal Gear series has maintained a lasting presence in the hearts of its fans. The Metal Gear games continue on at Konami and many fans have eagerly been following director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’s progress on a live-action film adaptation of the series. Fans still hold the first Metal Gear Solid games in high regard, especially for its unique characters. Now, a new premium series of Psycho Mantis statues have been revealed, celebrating the classic telepathic Metal Gear Solid enemy.
First 4 Figures unveiled their new line of Psycho Mantis statues, and many details about their upcoming release. Each one depicts him as he is often seen in the action segments of earlier Metal Gear Solid Games, appearing to lift his hands to telekinetically move various objects seen in the base of the statue. There are three variants of the collectible – one showing Mantis in his iconic gas mask, an exclusive edition showing his scarred face sans mask, and an Optic Camouflage version with an opaque variant of the masked figure.
The statues are all available for pre-order on the First 4 Figures website, ahead of their estimated release during Q3 (between July and September of next year). The price is quite hefty as each one will sell for $524.99, though there is a combo deal of $949.99 for buying the exclusive and camouflage editions together. These statues will surely be a valuable treasure for passionate Metal Gear fans. There probably are fans out there thinking that First 4 Figures read their minds to know their desires for Psycho Mantis statues like these.
