Real cool looking toy! I too

Real cool looking toy! I too think 3A has screwed up the printed scale. A 6 foot tall man in 1/48 scale would be 1.5 inches tall standing upright. To me that Snake figure looks to be about 1/35 to 1/32 scale (a 6 foot man would between 2.06" to 2.25" in those scales). Question though. How long is the railgun?

According to this:
http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/Metal_Gear_REX

The "real" railgun is 18.5m long. Converting meters to feet, that equates to about 60 and a half feet (or about 728.3465"). If the toy is really 1/48 scale that railgun should be just over 15 inches long. If it's closer to 1/35 to 1/32 scale, that railgun should be between 20.75" to 22.75" long...

Unless in the Metal Gear universe '18.5m' denotes '18.5 memories or moons or microscopes long'. :P

I thought that perhaps the

I thought that perhaps the inside of the cockpit was off in scale, But the railgun does measure about 23 inches. So perhaps the entire figure is closer 1/32.

Can't wait...

I was gonna freak out when I saw you already had this, but then I saw you got it direct. I feel like Sideshow is going to be the last retailer on the planet to get this and ship it out (March is the current window, BTW).
3A debuted their Ray prototype this year, and even if it takes another 4 years to reach the market, I'll be waiting to sign up as soon as it does.

Head/Cockpit Battery Cover help

I'm not sure if you'll be able to help me out here but i recently managed to get a hold of these (In japan while i was on holiday of all places...) and i for the life of me can not get the battery cover underneath the head off at all.

It's like completely jammed in there and i can't even pry the thing open with a screwdriver......

How is the cover supposed to come off? The manual is kinda vague (Like everything else, for example: how to actually move the joints).

It's like the one thing i really want to get done (get all the lights up and running).

If you can help me out (Like post a youtube video of how that thing comes off, which i've not found anywhere), i would so damn grateful.

Thanks

Maybe this is a really dumb question, but you removed the screw that holds it in place, right?

Check the screw

Yes this cover does have a screw that has to be removed before it will come off. It is a little tight but it hinges away from the screw and comes off.

Yes I did remove the screw.

Yes I did remove the screw.

And thank you :) i didn't know which side to open from (Just managed to open it just then). But yeah, that thing was on ridiculously tight....

Appreciate the help. :)
