Well, these are my minifigs based on MGS 2: Sons of liberty, the second game in the metal gear solid series, and arguably thw worst, but it's the only one I currently have in my house to play with, I played the original but , well, in second grade of elementary and in a friend's house, so I was a kid without taste and didn't appreciate it, i'll probably make minifigs of them too, but for some reason i don't feel inspired to make an effort if I don't play the game, I am building rex tough.
wow this is having more succes than i tought, ususally, my folders get 1000 views but in the course of months, my MGS folder has gotten 900 + views in just 4 or 5 days!, hope i get some reckognition for this outside the forum. Who knows, maybe I'll reciieve an autograph by kojima for MGS 4 like Scorp, hehe JK, i doubt it, even if my figs are good, many have done it now, and he was the first, besides, , Sons of liberty is like 5 years old now, I wonder tough, how did he come across mocpages and brickshelf?.
Anyway, I spent about a year doing these, they have passed thru like 3 designs and changes, so i hope you like them, in my short ''career'' of making lego minifigs, this is my best work.
This is just a crappy yet stylish ''poster'' for my figs, you can see that the figs are half real and half like the modified versions I made to look like MGS art, pretty cool huh?.
At first i wanted to do everyone like an hexagon , you know, for me, the hexagon is kind of iconic in MGS 2 (or a octagon..i don't remember)the struts in the big shell, those thing that light up in arsenla gear, etc, but i didn't have anough effects to do it like in the game, I might ask someone to do it for me sometime.
By the way, before I start... I know some of you will either think ''worse than Scorp'' ''better than Scorp'', well I don't wanna be compared to Scorp (saber-scorpon, Justin Stebbins, whatever you wanna call him)! I got enough of that with my halo mocs with some jerks e-mailing me calling me rip-off, and I just don't like being compared to other people, don't base it on scorp,and he too gets pissed off when people sompare his stuff in a negative way, base it on MGS2 : sons of liberty.
'' I am shalashaska, also called, revolver...OCELOT!''.
Ocelot in the tanker chapter, I am sure most of you, if you are looking at this, know very well who ocelot is, so no need for a story. His decal was difficult but fun to make, it's more tan than borwn like in the game bcaue i based it of the PVC statue from KONAMI (as most of the figs here).
I was never satisfied with the face, ocelot has a weird expression, i can't tell if he is smiling or being serious or anything, but this will have to do.
Also itisn't very noticable, but I painted the revolver silver.
'' Butch, butch girl! nanana , hairy armpits and muscular amrs, butch butch girl! nanana shotting down on the oil tanker!'' in case you don't know, it's just a parody of a song by motley crue, it goes '' girls girls girls! long legs and burgundy lips! '' etc.
Anyway, this is olga gurlokovich, daughter of sergei gulokovich, commander of a russian army. I really got nothing to say here, she wasn't a interesting character and this isn't and interesting fig, apart from the gun and the hairy armpit thing, luckily she looks more feminine in the big shell.
Oh and if you think the minifig looks too much like a man, i don't take t negatevely, it's what i was aiming for, olgs always looked like a guy with boobs to me anyway.
No that's not an actual line, but raiden is like legolas when he says ''a diversion!'' just states the ovbious and repeats what other say. But i am not going into a rant, everybody knows why everybody hates raiden, and don't tell me ''you don't get SOL'' , i get SOL, but that doesn't stop him from being a b%^&y little queer.
But I sometimes feel bad for the guy when you have to listen to what his even B&)&)ier girlfriend, Rse has to say, rose was just stupid, who the heck calls you to discuss relationships or to bother with dates when your ass is on the line?. In fact I was cheering for him when rose said he once was man anough to hit her for breaking into his room.
Mr X, deepthorat, Ninja, Olga, whatever you want to call him/ her. the ninja plays an important part in the game, he gives you the means to sneak to the shell one core and gives you some advice via his cellphone (seems to still be one of those giant block ones), and he is quite cool in action , actually. In the game, besides being a guy who gives you advice, he's supposed to be the equivalent of gray fox, since the big shell is just an iitation of shadow moses to experminet on raiden.
This fig is by ar one of the most detailed I have ever done, i went thru 3 color changes, design changes, etc, until it came to this.
Iroquis Pliskin, solid snake in ''disguise'' (yeah, like he fooled anyone), i got nothing much to say, the minifig was fun to make, i think i did a great job with the hear, and love my um...headphone thingies.
''You are the bigest collection of freaks outside of foxhound'' - Ocelot.
this is deadcell, the firt fig is fortune, a very useless and annoyign character, i can't stand all the corny drama she creates, if she want's to kill herself so badly why doesn't she ask vamp for a knife and slit her throat already!?.
Fatman, a very annoying dead cell memeber as well, I wanna shoot who ever even tought of him, what the heck were they thinking? ''great a zombie fat@&* with a suit that makes him look even fatter , he loves bombs...let's give him some roller skates, everybody loves rollerskates''.
Anyway,this is one of my most impressive, i think, i icnluded his gun, quie easy, A c4 bomb, semtex plastic explosives, and even his drink! (I dunno what it is...let's just say it's clamato). I gave up using a minifig, he's made of parts, except for the head and hands, he's poseable too.
And he's the firstfatman minifig ever, (well , there's prolly others, i only know of another one, but this is the first totally accurate one, hehe).
By the way, the head look inacurate to the game, but I based it off the fatman art by Yoji Shinkawa.
Olga in the big shell, same tomboy but with more femenine features this time. In the big shell she now ''inherets'' the gurlokovich army, so she commands the terrorists (at least the gulokovitch) in the big shell.
Next to her two soldier with grey cammo and tan cammo, the tan ones are the ones in the shell one core.
'' I am the boss to surpas big boss himself...solid snake!''
Solidus snake, former US president (George Sears) and leader of the sons of liberty, also the third clone of big boss, he doesn't live up to the hype tough, he relies in weapons, his uncanilly (sp?)powerfull p90, his swords, and his puffy suit, he's pretty cool with all of that tough, specially when he accelerates leaves fire.
The minifig was pretty complicated, I had to do a lot of decals, his tentacles, cut a sword, cut a black helmet in half for the mouth armor, and shoulder armor. You can't see his detail in the decal here, at least not much, but it's very detailed, you can see it better if you go to the section where I have a bunch of pics modified t look like MGS art, he has more contrast there, just visit my b-shelf folder.
Never been a fan of Lego for so many years..
But seeing what you did here..makes me read the whole section of this figs.
The idea of MGS+Lego is just awesome and not to mention the effort and time that you put in it. Awesome! =D
Though I've never played that game, these are very good. Also, I'm not gonna take a star off for this but if there's one thing that drives me to be interested in the Metal Gear Solid series, it's the Metal Gears. They kick, dude.
Whoaa!! EXCELLENT! These have to be the best MGS minifigs I've seen. You're presentation is good. I absolutely love how you actually created actual accompanying themed Lego backdrops for the figs. Subtle, but effective.
Thank you, Kadajiroth Tam. I appreciate that.
Fantastic job, Cesar. Although I always try to keep the cartoony simplicity of the LEGO minifig a little bit more, your super-detailed versions are undeniably awesome. As I know I've said before, they remind me of the McFarlane toys. Awesome job on the stands and poses too. It makes the figs even more impressive. It's great to see a full collection from you. No one could possibly give this less than 5/5!
