    I bought that exact kit and it looks great.
    I'm just not confident enough to give it a paintjob.

    it strikes a perfect balance between looking like a real machine but also stylized, like a kind of metal animal. I think it's iconic because it succeeds so well at being both, and is therefore really visually striking and memorable

      This and its also given great build up and payoff from a narrative standpoint.

        God does it ever
        Not showing the audience the shark is always such art
        You spend the whole time with Otacon raving about this horrible thing to build it up, at best you are seeing schematics
        You finally get close and it's all covered in scaffolding so you get comfortable around it
        and then it goes wild when it's launched, instantly geeks one of your three allies, and screams at you
        fucking art

          Not just any ally either but the strongest of them. The guy who you saw 2 hours ago tearing up a corridor full of guys, or rather you saw the aftermath.
          Really put Rex into perspective how big a threat it was.

    This is a case where technical limitations impacted the art design and the result was better off for it. The PS1 made the design require flat surfaces and hard angles to keep the poly count down and the textures had to be rather basic which meant a lot of steel and simple parts.

    The limitations meant the design turned out somewhat practical. They couldn't go crazy with nanotech or circuitry so it ended up looking more like an actual piece of machinery.

    He's a big headed mechanical T-Rex and he's called REX and he came out at a time where dinosaurs were still cool and trendy

      The whole idea is that it can launch ICBM without being detected
      Stealth nukes that can't be retaliated against
      Also looking cool

      It's a land based mobile weapons platform that is able to defend itself against conventional response.

      It's a caricature of the true concept.
      The smaller under 3m exoskeleton infantry suit.
      Disposable heavy infantry that can carry AA and AT missile launcher, and is armored against small guns while being too small of a target for big weaponry.
      Urban warfare is the future of warfare.
      And tanks and APCs are notoriously bad at it, while plain infantry is not good enough anymore.
