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.
