Metal Gear Solid creator, Hideo Kojima, has his own figurines. Square Enix, who own the Play Arts brand of action figures, sent Kojima a figure in his likeness with Raiden’s costume. Kojima showed it off via Twitter earlier in the week:




This one wasn’t sent to him by Square. Instead, Kojima took the head part off and put it on a Solid Snake figurine:

    Glorious ! xD

  • pinta_177

    hahahahaha what the hell kojima

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Lmao like a Boss! You know you’ve won in life when you have an action figure made in your likeness.

  • drproton

    I want one.

  • Immortalized like a pro.

  • AuraGuyChris

    It’s like slapping your head on top of Superman’s body.

  • DesmaX

    Damn, I want it

  • Follower_of_Pram

    Glorious, simply glorious

  • Sergio Briceño

    I think it’s a given fans will ask for this costume as DLC.

  • Hyli

    This is why everyone loves you, Kojima.
    Stay awesome, Sensei.

  • Derek E Nay

    I thought he hated swords :P Oh well, at least he has Hideo Snake.

    • Nick

      I liked that one better too, I personally don;t really like the (new version) raiden suit,

  • DarthSithZero

    I think Kojima should be on MGR as bonus skin will be hell of a fun

    Maybe Kojima is the DLC character that Platinum is going to reveal. His mission will be punishing the younger staff for not finishing Solid Rising and forcing them to finish Ground Zeroes. Another story involves Kojima going on a meeting with Inaba and defeating all the other developers who want Platinum to make their games.

    • Göran Isacson

      I would pay to play this.

    • TimeMaster

      They should just make a full game about being Kojima.

  • Göran Isacson

    At long last- Kojima will have a butt as firm and round as the characters he designs.

    At least, I presume that Kojimas actual butt is not as well-shaped since, you know, video game designer. But what if I’m wrong…

  • Ben Sylvia

    So when do we get a Shigeru Miyamoto action figure?

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I want this figures, and I want for Hideo to be a DLC, that would be a DLC that I would actually pay for with a smile.

  • Tails the Foxhound

    Lol, that looks so goofy. I totally want one.

  • isotrex

    You know you’re awesome when you’ve got your own image turn into an action figure.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    Now we need a Yoji Shinkawa figure. However, rather than a sword or a gun he needs a pencil. His “pendatsu” will be able to illustrate a Metal Gear in a split second.

  • new_tradition

    Where’s the Nomura figurine? xD

    • Go2hell66

      yeaz and he’s such a pretty boy too *wink*, his face would fit right in with all his characters

    • If there a Lightning figure with Nomura head in the future, I’m blaming you O.O

    • They would have to wrap him in belts so he looks like a mummy.

  • fireemblembeast

    What a boss…

  • Nitraion


  • I saw this the other day before this article got posted while looking for pictures of Raiden to use for my FB account. I was like “wth” when I saw them in google images, but didn’t know Kojima had just tweeted them at the time.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    this is a must buy hahaha

  • personablaze

    Aw man…I thought I could buy one
    Still,Kojima is a Gaming God xD.

  • noctis_nox

    I want to have that figurine. It will look good with my collection.
