New ‘Metal Slug 3’ Figures Set To Arrive In Early 2023!

Tunshi Studio

We spotted a bunch of new stylized figures based on Metal Slug 3 pop up at the Big Bad Toy Store. Most of the eight figures are about 4″ tall, and the sub looks to be capable of holding one figure. Each mini figure is priced at $19.99, and they’re expected to ship during the first quarter of 2023. I’m not sure if these are just part of a wave or if we’ll be seeing more figures in the future, but right now, you can pre-order Eri, a Mars Person, Marco, a POW, a Rifle Soldier, the Slug Marine, a Sasquatch (Yeti), and a Marine Diver.

Hopefully, the next wave will give us zombified versions of Marco or Fio. It’s also weird that the Metal Slug is missing from the first batch of figures. I guess Tunshi Studio didn’t want to shoot its entire load right out of the gate, or else you wouldn’t come back to buy more figures.

I’m not sure what it is about the third game in the series, but all the recent merchandise we’ve seen so far stems from the second sequel. Metal Slug 3 was released into arcades in 2000. This addition to the series added branching paths, which added to the replay value, not to mention finding the numerous secrets hidden in said paths. MS3 was the first port of the game I had ever played outside of the arcade. I remember buying a PSP Go just so I could play Metal Slug while I traveled. Yeah, there was no other reason to own that version of the Sony PSP.

What do you think of Metal Slug and these new figures? Let us know below!
