It might be a good placeholder until something better comes along. But, I think the aftermarket prices are way too much for it.
 
How is that Solid Snake from Zii.PROduction? It looks decent to me but pricy in after market now
Me personally I don’t think it’s worth it unless you plan on customizing it. Better head sculpt, better under suit, accessories that aren’t super brittle etc.
 
Missed on the OG ver. so this will do
I have it. I'll get this Fox too. They'll look awesome together.

it's a good figure I'm also still thinking on getting it but not yet...

Off topic
I'm returning once again to the mgs figure game and this time it's with old snake cause I found a second piece so I'm going full custom on this one



probably I'm gonna be spamming the thread for a little bit 😅

didn't know how to take the suit off but remembered how I took apart the medicom bats suit (from the waist) and it when off practically the same

Due to the suit been in a pretty bad condition I broke it from the armpit a little bit.

I'm probably gonna cut from the back of the suit to avoid anymore damage

What kind of wash did you use on the suit beforehand? I have a spare that I’m fixing to fiddle with
 
how did you not break the body. if you paint make sure it suits rubber.
You mean when I took out the rubber suit?

If it's that then it's because I pulled the suit very slowly , But honestly I didn't really care about the rah body

Off topic

To try not spamming to much here are some pics testing the suit on a coomodel body

I initially have a ganghood muscular body in mind but it was to much for the suit so I changed to a narrow shoulder body

Hope I can get my custom sculpt by the end of the month meanwhile here it's a pic with guts sculpt

Hey y'all, I'm a member from a few years ago. Haven't been active. Been so busy with life but getting back to customizing and posting. Im planning this month coming to spend a bunch of my time taking photos of all my MGS stuff and work on taking better photos.

I have a bunch of older and rare customs that I've re-modified. Im a younger collector so I've been tracking down and paying pretty high prices on these customs that were floating around and repainting them on my free time. And some stuff like my mgs4 Solid is just my own formula i came up with. Just want to share my love of this stuff with y'all. Will post some more here in March!

If you want to keep up with my stuff more often and see non-mgs stuff take a look at my instagram @Lord.Raijin
Ive also began sculpting on my own too to try and make some mgs heads in my free time.

Thanks guys and glad to have this community still going strong.

Fantastic collection

You are using a Batman dark knight suit on old snake ?
Great eye! Yep I had the RAH old snake, tore that suit up with an x-acto and then grabbed a dark knight body to glue, apoxy, and repaint the two figure suits together. Then i had that custom head, painted it up and threw a magnet inside, weathered the whole thing with sand and wallah my completed old snake!

It's honestly one of the figures I'm most proud of because i think it came together so completely.

The RAH unfortunately leaves a lot to be desired and the range of motion makes me sad.

Man that it's an amazing and very expensive custom old snake 👌

I also thought on cutting the suit like armor plates but I just couldn't find an under suit for it so I leave it almost complete, probably gonna try it some day with my first old snake

Thank you so much! Means a lot to me.

Also, I had gotten the inspiration from a few customizers who had made a special undersuit for making a custom old snake with the rah body years ago, and took a few ideas from them but the batman base works very well for what the purpose is. They had made a mesh type suit and it looked really cool. Unfortunately though when i reached out about it none of them had any guidance to give and no one was making the suits still. I heavily reccomend trying the dark knight body if you can't find a good substitute.
 
The new(ish) Gray Fox - Final Battle version is up for P/O at all the usual. I own the original release, but I'm a sucker for MGS1 merch and Gecco.

Crazy to see the variations on prices for this though. Since the yen is so low, AmiAmi has the best deal for this at a little over $250 USD, granted the shipping will be on the higher side. Most domestic retailers however and even Gecco Direct has this around $350, but BBTS is wanting a ridiculous $450... wtf are they smoking?!

That one looks very nice. I don't have too many MGS figures / statues. But out of the ones I have, their first Gray Fox is still my favorite piece.
