MGS Big Boss figure adviceMGS Big Boss figure advice

Hey, all!

I just joined today, and have a related dorky MGS question of the utmost importance: Which Big Boss figure should I eventually buy?

See, because the scaling is otherwise screwed up (canonically, Big Boss is at least slightly taller than his son), I was thinking of getting ITEM #1667 (although I prefer articulated figures, I could deal with it if need be) and ITEM #233765 for collection/posing purposes since I really like 'em both (though I prefer BB slightly over Solid). Time Paradox!

ITEM #143577 has cool accessories and I could just change up Solid's stance to be shorter, though BB's face sculpt bothers me somewhat.

If I wanted to get a Big Boss figure alone, ITEM #162371 is super tempting (and he'd be the tallest one in my small figure collection, which would be a nice centerpiece, so to speak). BUT, Solid Snake Play Arts Kai these days being over $300 USD would be a no go to group 'em together (and in this situation, it's Solid's face sculpt that bothers me).

All that aside, I would simply wait for a Big Boss Figma (maybe some news at WonFes 2016?), but I'm not sure how likely GSC will do that since GSC/Max Factory seems somewhat inconsistent in releasing full collections of series. For what it's worth, I really loved the Rei and Asuka Eva 2.0 Figma I owned several years back. Good example of a situation where we never got Shinji or Kaworu Figma to complement our 3 Eva 2.0 girls! :(

Regarding MGSV: View spoilerHide spoilerI love Venom Snake, but I'm fine with him as an eventual Nendo figure only to "duke it out" with my Solid Snake Nendo. (Quiet Nendoroid when?!) Heck, if a company would release a leather jacket Big Boss, I'd be super happy!

Thoughts? Any other figure suggestions I'm unaware of? Please state why! Do note I'd want to spend around $100 USD at most on whatever Big Boss figure I'd buy, so the gorgeous-looking ITEM #208193 is sadly out the window.

Thanks in advance for any help! ^_^

Because these Figure Companies like to see us suffer, here's a new dilemma I'm having.

WF2016W (well, a little before that) unveiled a super lovely looking Gecco Quiet ITEM #396243 . For their scaling to work, I could also save up for Splitter Ver Venom ITEM #301253 since that version's not too pricey compared to other PAK Venoms. I'm already certain Gecco Quiet will cost an arm and a leg depending on where you get her from...

So uh...Team Ponytail (the things we do for our OTPs...Sigh), or do I stick to my guns and just be happy with this sexy beast ITEM #32502 whenever I nab him?

Shame I just couldn't get all three or some variation there of, but you know how it goes with money and real life!

gloomyprince (2 anno/i fa) #5539127There's so many MGS Play arts Kais available, be careful you don't end up with too many, ahaha~

Thankfully I don't have the shelf space or money to end up with too many! Most likely I'd just get BB/Ocelot/Kaz (that totally doesn't sound wrong...Or right, depending on your preferences) and not worry about other characters.

For instance, the FF7 Tifa (original version) ITEM #1458 looks super cute, but I'd probably only nab her instead of the whole cast.

SailorStarDust (2 anno/i fa) #5538777Snake has to get pretty for Santa's visit, doesn't he? :3 Out of curiosity, you do recommend ITEM #32470 as well or not as much? I don't mind the sneaking suit, it's any variation of the battle dress that looks somewhat silly to me. The sneaking suit ver is pricier, but I wouldn't mind since certain Play Arts Kai figures seem like good quality.
I'll be sure to submit pics accordingly whenever I nab 'em!
Damn, it's so tempting to buy not only Kaz, but eventually Ocelot and View spoilerHide spoilerVenom too, of course! :D...Maybe I could have a mini MGS PAK collection someday, to complement my future Sailor Team SH Figuarts collection...

I think they're about the same, just with different bodies and accessories O: I like BB in fatigues more, so I got the other version. There's so many MGS Play arts Kais available, be careful you don't end up with too many, ahaha~

gloomyprince (2 anno/i fa) #5524542I'm glad you chose him! You won't regret it. He's super cute! pbs.twimg.com/m... You should totally get Kaz with him :)

SailorStarDust (2 anno/i fa) #5524532Ahh, thank you so much! :D Looking him over again, I think that's the Big Boss for me! Hopefully they'll one day
make a "proper" Big Boss Nendo or Figma, based on my spoiler'ed suggestion ;)
I might just get him alongside Kaz since I don't like my figures to be without a buddy (/total weirdo) and
they're both inexpensive. Ocelot would be fun too, but again, scaling issue in this situation...
Hopefully Christmas funds will work out just right!

I personally own and love ITEM #32502 ! I've been in the same situation as you (looking for the perfect BB) and he doesn't seem to be getting a lot of figures nowadays (still salty that they haven't made a *proper* BB nendo yet). This one is really BIG and he's nice and detailed, has a good face, is relatively cheap, though his articulation is pretty mediocre. Also maybe consider this BB ITEM #106669 if you can afford it, I think he looks really good, I just kinda dislike the fact that he's in the sneaking suit. I think he's one of the best BBs out there.

FSLAR (2 anno/i fa) #5524424Kinda misleading with the Solid Snake figma lol

Hah!

FSLAR (2 anno/i fa) #552442If you can, the Peace Walker Jungle Fatigues Naked Snake is a great pick, he's somewhat cheap

I'll definitely keep him in mind (love BB in The Boss's bandana), thank you! :D Although I'd be very tempted to get Kaz to pose alongside with, since Kaz is pretty inexpensive. Ocelot PAK looks great, too!

Kinda misleading with the Solid Snake figma lol

The Revoltech is incredibly cheap, though for a reason, and I personally would not have the Ground Zeroes Big Boss figures as my preferred Big Boss figure. The Figma, mod or not, is great, probably the best of the bunch. The Medicom one I have never seen in person so I Cannot judge.

If you can, the Peace Walker Jungle Fatigues Naked Snake is a great pick, he's somewhat cheap.

Seiidaishougun (2 anno/i fa) #5524234Besides that, calling some figures "Naked Snake" when he isn't actually naked, that's false advertising! XD

XD Reminds me of a joke in MGS Peace Walker related to that... Solid Snake's awesome too, so I'm definitely considering him regardless of what Naked Snake figure I'd buy. (Father and son must CQC together!)

Thanks for your input! :)
