Metal Slug 3: Master Craft SV-001 II
Beast Kingdom – Resin Statue
In 1996, one of the most celebrated arcade video gaming franchises was born! SNK’s ‘Metal Slug’ introduced gamers to a war epic unlike any other. Blasting away at waves of ‘dot matrix’ enemies on a side-scrolling landscape, for the first time ever a character mid-game could enter different types of vehicles to control and smash hordes of enemy gunfire. Of those vehicles, the ‘Super Vehicle-001’ tank became synonymous with the game. A cartoonish yet highly maneuverable battle-tank, the SV-001 has become a mascot of sorts for the SNK brand as a whole.
Beast Kingdom’s ‘Entertainment Experience Brand’ gives fans of extremely detailed works of art the chance to own a piece of gaming history with the launch of SV-001 Master Craft Tank. Limited to only 3,000 pieces worldwide, the hand painted and crafted statue is a professionally made piece recreating the battle-worn tank with an immense focus on the fine details. A matching painted base brings to life a broken bridge with a set of movable extras including a street sign, game logo, ‘R rocket launcher’ as well as an extra pair of underpants from the saved POW, giving fans ample ways to set up the collectable piece. Based on the design from Metal Slug 3 and with a number plaque on the base, this is one collector’s item for fans of possibly the most well-renowned battle tank in gaming history!
