    Big Boss with a FoxHound beret and what looks like Solid Snake? Seems more like MG1 art rather than Peace Walker.

    • César H. Sandoval

      There’s still a huge Peace Walker Logo in there; and the Foxhound unit was already created by Big Boss before that, in Portable Ops.

      • MetalGearAlex

        True. Plus Zeke and the Motherbase soldiers. I know FoxHound was created in PO, but the FoxHound logo and Solid Snake(?) is still interesting in this PW artwork.

        • Kazuhira-on-the-roof

          That’s not Solid Snake. Solid Snake is not anywhere in this image.

          • MetalGearAlex

            Are you sure? The black and white figure in the foreground with a bandana and no eyepatch?

          • jack_coban

            Yeah, it does indeed look more like Solid Snake rather than Big Boss.

          • flying_fox

            It does, in a way.

            But it is Big Boss (look at his clothes, boots, right knee, shoulders…).

            The ambiguity may be intentional. There’s a very peculiar reflection on the spot where the eyepatch is supposed to be, which makes it look like he’s not wearing one.

          • Big_Boss88

            Big Boss used the bandana in Peace Walker. It was only in the end when he threw it away, when he moved on from The Boss.

            The eye-patch can be hard to notice in that black and white figure, because of Shinkawa’s art style and the bandana being close to it.

    • This artwork can be found in the official Peace Walker artbook.

        And on the HD Premium Pack OST.

      “No! That is NOT Solid Snake!” 😉

    14 days left.

    • Big_Boss88

      😀 oooh yeah

      • MichaelPayneV

        Yep, can’t wait.

        PS: I’m a little worried that there are less then 2 weeks left, and still don’t have a PC Trailer, or an up to date version of the Comparison Trailer for Ground Zeroes.

    Godly Art as always! Shinkawa-san!

  • Big_Boss88

  • Vic boss!

  • Daniel Rios

    how much does this run in american dollar? i can’t quite figure it out.

    • flying_fox

      Around $430 for the aluminium finish and $550 for the plexiglas finish.

      Don’t know how much they charge for shipping overseas.
