Metal Gear ? & ! lights, alarm clock and talking boxes claw crane prizes shown at Japan Amusement Expo

At JAEPO (Japan Amusement Expo) 2015, an event taking place in Makuhari Messe that focuses on arcade products, a new line of Metal Gear Solid V catcher prizes has been unveiled. Shown at the Taito booth, these items are meant to be prizes for so called ‘UFO catchers’, also known as a claw crane or crane game.


You can see the various items displayed. The item on the far right is a cardboard box that emits sounds: you’ll hear characters like Kaz and Snake talk when you touch it.

These ! and ? light up and make a sound when they detect movement.


The last item is an alarm clock with Metal Gear Solid radio noises.

    So much Merchandise, and no Release Date. Well, it’s not too bad. I had fun with UFO catchers at the Taito Stations and SEGA arcades in Osaka. I’ve won a few things actually.

  • Shalashaska

    Tbh all of the stuff looks pretty good and I’d get all of them if I could. Or I’d Just make it myself with some plastic, paper and light because that stuff can be made xD

  • flying_fox

    I can already imagine the impossible prices from Japanese resellers…

    Even though the alarm clock looks like a DIY project from 6th grade.

    • Shalashaska

      “How do we make a cool watch?”
      “I know, lets just take a digital clock frame, stick a print out to it, cover that with plastic and tighten it with huge nails.”
      It looks good and all.. but seriously ? :/

      • you will eat your words when you know that includes the full “sins of the father” theme far ahead of release date and all the unreleased tappy iwase versions of the MGS main theme.. plus a DLC code to play as the alarm radio on MGO3

        • Shalashaska

          xD Are you sure about the MGS theme song ? Because I heard it had spoilers …
          Also.. Hey I never said I didnt like it.. Infact, If i had the money, I’d probably buy it myself 😀

  • Big_Boss88

    I’d love to have that alarm clock =).

    Kojima and folks know how to put these merchandises into good use. Not every game do this merchandise stuff, but MGS is so big that many people want them.

    • Mr.Pony

      waking to the sound of the ! would be a good way to jump out of bed immediately

    • ThreeMadFrogs

      When the article said MGS alarm clock I got excited. But the product itself doesn’t look that spectacular unfortunately 🙁

      • Big_Boss88

        Hmmm well yeah I guess it don’t, but it still is MGS alarm clock xD!

  • MrVux007

    and here i was expecting some new screenshots along the way….what a sucka, i am huh? Xd

  • Rogue Agent

    There should be an alarm clock for when we get a release date.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Without a countdown.

      Or one that promises to go off at release but goes off at random.

  • Big_Boss88

    Just watched Starman from 1984 for the first time and what a fantastic movie ;D. I love Carpenter’s movies like The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China and Escape From N.Y. , but I never got to see this before. Jeff Bridges’ acting is so great in it ^_^.

    Arigatou Kojima for suggesting it in your tweets 😉 !

    • Cobra

      If you haven’t already, make sure you watch the original Assault on Precinct 13!

      • Big_Boss88

        Hmm not sure have I seen. Thanks for suggesting :D, will check it out!

        • Cobra

          Happy to help! It’s not really up there with Carpenter’s best imo (Which’d be the Kurt Russell trio and They Live, for my money) and it’s fairly dated and rough around the edges (owing to its tiny budget), but it’s well worth a watch. Stay away from the 2005 remake with Laurence Fishburne though, that one’s completely awful.

  • Mini gear

    so much merchandise, not a single release date

  • PrinceHeir

    Speaking of arcade products. I remember Konami announcing Metal Gear Arcade

    I wonder if they’ll do something similar in a few years? ^^

    • Plissken

      How awesome would it be if they had a different arcade mode in one of the games where you play through famous fights throughout the series in the style of the MGS4 final fight of Snake & Liquid Ocelot. I don’t think it would work as a stand alone game, but as a sub mode, it’d be cool.

  • Solid O.

    OFF : Just LOL !! – Metal Gear Solid 2 😀

  • moto hellogoto

    Happy Valentine’s Day from Kaz

    • Big_Boss88

      Happy V-day too ;D !

  • PrinceHeir

    Happy Valentines Day Everyone at MGI!

    Pick your pairs XD

    Big Boss and Samus Aran

    Batou and Naked Snake 🙂

    • moto hellogoto

      I pick the one that isn’t horrifying.

      • PrinceHeir

        Batou is too manly for you.

        • moto hellogoto

          I can’t argue with you there lol

    • Big_Boss88

      You too Prince-chan <3 ! Hmm Samus ftw ;)…

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah Happy Valentines day.

      Big Boss and Samus Aran, everything about that is awesome lol, now I know why Big Boss likes Eva because she reminds him of Samus lol.

      Batou and Naked Snake…… You can’t celebrate valentines day with yourself so that option is invalid.

  • Mini gear
    • It’s a placeholder. Regardless, it’s safe to say a release in March isn’t going to happen anymore.

      • Mini gear

        I know, it still hurts seeing it though

  • Big_Boss88

    Nice new poll! I had to give my vote for Zanzibar Land 😀 and it is the thing I would love to see before Kojima stop doing games. But it maybe not gonna happen ;(, ’cause might take a long time and TPP will bring the timeline kind of into full circle anyway so maybe Kojima stop doing MGS after TPP.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, if any environment I want to see in the Fox engine it would be a nice outdoors one like Zanzibar Land, Costa Rica’s Rainforest, or the place in MGS3, Tsylinoyarsk god knows how you actually spell it I’m to lazy to copy paste lol. A beautiful environment is what I want to see and to be honest mainly indoor places it not what I think of when I want to see the Fox engine, especially places like MGS2 or MG1.

      P.S. I voted for Costa Rica’s Rainforest with Zanzibar land coming close second followed by Tsylinoyarsk, Though I voted for Costa Rica’s Rainforest because PW was a handheld game so its graphics and presentation were far from what they could have been and thus I couldn’t stop drooling about what it would look like in the Fox engine 🙂

      • Big_Boss88

        Aye that Costa Rica forest would be also amazing to see :D. I actually have been drooling about it too when imagining it in Fox Engine haha <3.

        Lol np I think it was Tselinoyarsk, so you got pretty close. Zanzibar or Outer Heaven for me simply because the graphics are so old in them, so it would be incredible to see in Foxy Engine :).

    • Invader_skoodge

      OMG! Now I feel like I contributed something to the site. ( b ; v ;)b Maybe Nyxus could use my other suggestion. LOL I also voted for Zanzibar Land.

      • Big_Boss88

        Oh it was your suggestion :D, cool! New poll ideas are always welcome imo ;), also don’t worry you’ve contributed a lot already by being here and commenting lol <(^_^<).

  • Vegas

    You know what merchandise i would really love to see? The actual freaking game.

    • Big_Boss88

      Some day my friend…some day ;C .

  • mcroix

    I was going to make a joke about the “?” being a tpp release date count down timer…

    but i think the phantom pain clock blinking 12:00 over and over would be more appropriate.

  • Ma2a

    The alarm clock is shitty.
