“Kept you waiting huh?” That is the question we were asking since Ground Zeroes’release. Metal Gear Solid is a revolutionary franchise, the protagonist Snake and game director Hideo Kojima also follow that pattern. With rumors of Hideo Kojima parting ways with Konami post-release,The Phantom Pain’s hype was immense. The franchise has given us magnificent games, and we were hoping The Phantom Pain was another addition to that list. The MGSV CE is a true gift to Metal Gear fans. Though it has a lot of collectibles, the box itself is quite small.

When you open the box, Snake’s Bionic Arm is a fascinating item. It is made by the Sentinel. The arm measures about 17″x 7″x 7″ and is made of ABS and POM plastic. Its wrist and fingers are fully articulated, and it’s strong enough to grip small items. Along with the game copy, you will also receive downloadable content and a map. There is also a steel book in there. It isn’t the best steel book you will see, but it is decent. Inside the steel book, there is a disc with the soundtrack of the game. This is one best collector editions out there, end of.
