The SuperGroupies Metal Gear watch takes direct inspiration from the codec call user interface, with Colonel Campbell’s contact frequency displayed on the watch’s face. Additionally, the hands and sections that have taken inspiration from the codec call interface will glow in the dark. Consumers will not only be able to tell the time but keep track of the date with this watch as well. The Metal Gear collaboration watch will cost ¥19,800 or $189 and come with a special cardboard box case.
The second item in the collection is a backpack inspired by Solid Snake. This bag will come with three patches, each representative of the legendary icon himself. This includes a FOXHOUND patch that consumers can place on various parts of the bag. Other details include a camo print on the inside of the bag and an alert patch on the inside. The bag will cost ¥14,800 or roughly $140.
If you’re looking for something a little more discreet, the SuperGroupies Metal Gear jacket will be up your alley. This sleek-looking piece of outerwear has been designed for everyday use, so consumers will be able to wear it on almost any occasion. As you can see in the images below, the jacket features yellow and camouflaged accents. The Metal Gear inspired jacket will cost ¥23,800 or $228.
And lastly, consumers will be able to get their hands on a special set of boots inspired by the FOXHOUND unit. This pair of boots has the same detailing as both the bag and the jacket, pulling the range of accessories together. This pair of boots will cost ¥19,800 or roughly $189.
Other recent SuperGroupies collaborations have included the Devil May Cry series. Similar to the Metal Gear collaboration items, consumers can get their hands on themed jackets, shoes, and other accessories.
