The lights are on
Putting aside the fact that codenames in the Metal Gear Solid series are getting more phallic as time goes on, we've got your first look at a Punished Snake you can play with. In case you are just catching up, the first part of Big Boss' codename (formerly "Naked") has been changed to "Punished."
Today, series mastermind Hideo Kojima tweeted two pictures of an in-progress action figure for the character. These are roughs created on a 3D printer in cooperation with Yoji Shinkawa, the artist behind the Metal Gear Solid and Zone of the Enders series.

No word on when these might be finalized and ready for purchase. We just hope that "stealth horse" gets a figure, too.
Square Enix has released an updated shot of the in-progress Punished Snake figure. He's coming along quite nicely.

"Come at me, bro!"
Look at that strong muskely man.
That's pretty sweet. I remember seeing in some behind the scenes thing that Shinkawa had sculpted some things, I think REX, and they looked pretty awesome.
I hope it comes with weapon and cigar accessories.
Give me one!
Wait until we get "Chronically depressed Snake." Right now he kinda looks like Granite Snake, not half bad of a codename come to think of it. Will love to see how much it looks like Jack Bauer by the time it's done.
I was wondering when this was going to happen...and so was my wallet.
Didn't know it was going to be this soon though.
This should be a neat action figure.
Oh my gosh this is amazing. ^_^
Haha, that's awesome!
Its sooooooo cool to see this process
