After waiting what seems like an eternity, Konami’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain video game still hasn’t quite hit release day. How am I dealing with my unfed desire for tactical espionage operations? By picking up the new VENOM SNAKE action figure, of course!

It is part of Square Enix’ Play Arts Kai line and seems to be truly exceptional. Hell, nothing even broke out of the package!

Join us as I take a closer look at Venom Snake’s sculpt, articulation, paint, accessories, and all that jazz. I can’t seem to shut up about it! Really. The video clocks in at about 11 minutes. Ridiculous!
