Metal Gear Solid 5 bionic arm gets North American release

This rather snazzy Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain collector’s piece has only been available to purchase in Japan, until now.

Online gaming accessory retailer, Nsurgo, are now accepting pre-orders in North America for this 1/1 scale bionic arm, which it says has “amazing points of articulation from the wrist to the fingers”. Weighing in at 850g, the arm is 50cm long and was originally part of a rare collector’s edition in Japan which also included the full game.

Check out the bionic arm in action.


It’s currently up for preorder at $185.00, with the first shipments expected to be made in May 2016.

An armless bit of fun, or a useless bit of tat?
