Metal Gear REX concept art from the “Master Artworks - Metal Gear Solid 4”
And for the final post of Theme Week #1: Metal Gear, we end as we began with some images of Metal Gear REX. You’ve got to love those details they put into this thing. It must have also been pretty surreal at the time for the artists to go back and redesign REX for the “final” game. I can only imagine that sense of finality.
The best of both world, VEPR and 10/22.
Spotted this last night at an ice cream parlor, or whatever you’d call an ice cream parlor that deals exclusively in ices. Ice parlor?
It’s the legendary Ms. Pac-Man “cocktail table” arcade game, and surely an original one considering its wear-and-tear. This is on the list of “things I must own someday.” It wasn’t plugged in, but I’m telling myself that it still works fine. (Otherwise my dream of going back there with a wrinkly $100 bill and convincing the owner to sell it for that loses some of its luster.)
The Spanish CETME Modelo C, not to be mistaken with the G3.
