Sniper Wolf statue by Kotobukiya announced and Play Arts figures shown at New York Toy Fair

At the New York Toy Fair 2015, Kotobukiya announced a new Sniper Wolf statue as part of their ‘bishoujo’ line. By the silhouette you can more or less make out the statue’s shape.


The statue will be available at the end of 2015.

Also on display at the Toy Fair, several upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Play Arts Kai figures: Revolver Ocelot, the ‘Man on Fire’, and Punished Snake in his sneaking suit.

  • Mr.Pony

    well at least now we know how the fire-Volgin/Fire-Unicorn guy looks like. It seems like he is wearing the same sneaking suit as Big Boss in GZ

    • Probably Volgin, you can see remains of the bullet belt around his shoulder.

      • ThreeMadFrogs
        • Mini gear

          if that aint volgin then im not minigear, also I just noticed he has bullets in his face

          • Jason Mounce

            All those bullets that went off before his death, would easily guess a LOT of the bullets shot off into every area of his body

      • Mr.Pony

        Was hoping not to. I would prefer new bosses with new background story but i guess that it would make kind of sense to see old Bosses appearing, (Big Boss fighting his inner daemons). Also it seems he has bullets coming out of his head

        • Not sure if these are going to be bosses. From what we’ve seen Snake will be hallucinating during the hospital scene, seeing ‘phantoms’ from his past. So maybe he’ll only appear there.

          • Mr.Pony

            They confirmed that boss-battles will return in TPP so I’m guessing that the fight while on horse-back is a boss fight, so far i think that there might be like three boss fights that we know of, the Fire-Volgin, the redhead Mantis and those Skull-Face kind of soldiers, maybe somewhere you get to fight a Metal Gear or other kind of mech

          • Hm, but isn’t the horse shootout more like a chase scene (like Liquid in the jeep in MGS1, Snake & EVA and Ocelot on the bike in MGS3, and Big Mama & Snake in MGS4)?

          • Mr.Pony

            In the trailer there is a lighthouse after Big Boss and Ocelot fall from the thunder I was thinking that the battle would start with that chase scene and maybe end with the Boss battle itself, and since the Fire-Volgin also flies it may be some kind of battle like in MGS4 with Raging Raven taking place in the lighthouse

        • Zlatan

          Me is looking forward to see volgin again, or what is left of him. Don’t know how you see it, but i always felt like there was more to tell about this guy. where he got the abilities of dealing with electricity from, for example.

          • Mr.Pony

            From all MGS Bosses, Volgin was one of my least favorites. If kojima’s is planning on closing the circle of the Big Boss story with TPP I would rather see Bosses more close to the “Solid Snake saga”

          • Kol Leqejza

            wut?! definitely the best villain in any mgs, imo.

        • Shalashaska

          tbh, im all for new bosses but i’d love segments of boss fights with old characters.. even if its a dream or hallucination.. infact im hoping there are those fights becasue I’d LOVE to fight volgin and the end in the fox engine. So yea.. im hoping to see old characters haunt B boss

          • Big_Boss88

            I think we might see flashbacks of old scenes, when Big Boss is in coma. Maybe battles involving Volgin or The Boss on the field :D. It would be so awesome, but I also can’t wait to see what new bosses TPP show us :).

            We might not see MG1 characters, because Uprising happen 11 years later, but it would be cool to see how BB meet some of the boss characters. Who knows though, maybe we see some of them… because TPP story could go further than 84 ;D.

          • Shalashaska

            FOX ENGINE THE END, VOLGIN, THE BOSS = Worth everything = AMAZING! xD

            We may see a few.. liquid is a sure sure. Jaeger too. I wanna see sniper wolf 😀
            and ofcourse… i want to see Jaeger the most. And not because he is gray fox/ninja, but because of the relationship that he has With the big boss.

      • Mini gear

        and the same oufit

  • XIFF-5

    The ‘burning man’ one is awesome!

  • Sam

    The sneaking suit Big Boss is amazing

  • glitchbomb

    Is it me or does burning man have a weird cluster of bullets right where V has the horn?
    I love this twisted version of someone’s past manifesting into bizarre creatures thing that seems to going on here. Great practice for Silent Hills! Hah.

  • Plissken

    Ocelot figure doesn’t come with “You’re pretty good” hands?

    • César H. Sandoval

      Sold later as comicon exclusive LOL

  • Matthew Croy

    burning man kinda looks like python from portable ops. was portable ops considered canon? i guess if they were going to use ocelot killing the dci then asking for big boss to be in the patriots and gray fox being introduced as a weirdo, python showing up as a fireman isn’t too weird.

    • The main events in PO are supposedly canon, but some of the details are off, though we don’t know which ones. You probably shouldn’t expect any characters from PO since Kojima didn’t write the story himself so he probably focuses on his own lore for this game.

      • Matthew Croy

        I’m wondering if they’re going to re-introduce a new Gray Fox or if they’ll use the one in portable ops. I don’t remember them bundling portable ops with any of the HD releases like they did with peace walker.

        • Mr.Pony

          Hope they introduce a new Grey Fox, Null was awful

    • vic boss

      Wasn’t Python Frank jeager? if indeed he was Frank Jeager I don’t think that’s python

      • Matthew Croy

        Python was Python. Frank Jaeger was Null.

        • vic boss

          Thanks for the answer , Portable ops is the only mgs that I haven’t played, Only watched the cutscenes so yeah I don’t remember it that well

  • Big_Boss88

    Look so good 😉 !

  • Shalashaska

    This work is AMAZING! Love the Ocelot statue!
    and the Big boss one and the Volgin one is EVEN MORE AMAZING.
    And for those who are still second guessing who that fire man is .. seriously? I’m willing to bet that it is Volgin! If not, I’ll change my name to shalalashasaka! xD

    and Tbh, Im hoping for this to be true.. I would love to fight previous bosses once again (Dont worry, there will be enough bosses, kojima isnt lazy that he’ll rehash bosses so stop being afraid of that) Especially Volgin and The end… Open world The END fight = WOW.

    Also, I dont care HOW or in what matter those fights are.. it could be hallucinations or dreams.. doesnt matter .. all that matters is B.Boss is fighting his demons that are back to haunt him. It doesnt even matter if its all just hallucinations created by Psycho Mantis as long as Big boss is fighting that what he has kept hidden in his heart.

    • It’s possible that before she becomes a buddy you have to fight Quiet, and it could be a battle like the one with The End. This is purely speculation though.

      • Big_Boss88

        Yea this would be cool and it is possible :D. I also wonder how Quiet saves Big Boss :), well that is what Ocelot say to Kaz in that Quiet cutscene.

      • Mr.Pony

        In the “quiet trailer” Ocelot says “She’s saved the Boss” to which kaz answers “she was saving herself”, so you might not have to fight her but fight with her against someone

      • Shalashaska

        Yup.. or she could be a bad guy depending on your actions. Either way..hoping for a sniper boss fight in the open world.. its a nice opportunity .. plus the fox engine.. all in all = Best boss fight ever 😀

    • Big_Boss88

      Yeah it gotta be Volgin. He is a demon that has stayed inside Big Boss’ mind/heart for long time, because of how horrifying dude he was.

      I mean he beat the shit outta Snake and made him piss his pants, which was tough to watch ;(. So those moments must have put some mental dmg to Snake too, which have manifested inside him for years. Then in TPP Hospital he starts to see his old memories including Volgin, but Mantis maybe enhance this somehow. First with his trench coat on, then later without it as this burning dude.

      Also the bolt of lightning in GDC trailer has made me think what it is, where it come from and what happen after they fall. That lightning reminds of Volgin too. Kojima dont forget the importance of boss battles :).

      • Shalashaska

        Yea.. like how post-traumatic-stress disorder works.. it would only be natural that after all that Big Boss has gone through, for him to have it. Perhaps Pmantis is in control of these manifestations or maybe not.. either way, im hoping for kojima to push all of us who have amazing memories of MGS3, to an amazing and nostalgic ride.

        • Big_Boss88

          Yea indeed like PTSD work, forgot how it’s written xD. Kojima will surely surprise us, lets just hope he decides some day that TPP is perfect enough for release to the world ^_^.

          • Shalashaska

            hahaha .. the wait is beginning to really itch now.. to top that, he hasnt even released anything significant recently.. Taipei was .. well.. nothing.. :/

          • Big_Boss88

            But in a way that is good right? Because if he show more stuff of TPP, like gameplay or trailer in every game event, then we might see too much of the game if TPP release in late months. Then again, new material would keep us busy drooling and theorizing for long time ;).

            I wanna see more of it, but also don’t… and instead wanna find out the stuff when playing :).

          • Shalashaska

            ofcourse..wouldnt want too much to be given off.. but im really gonna die from lack of this game in my xbox :'(
            The best thing he could do is make a title update for ground zeroes so we could keep playing that till TPP is released but ihighly doubt that will happen..
            or he could just show us some more gameplay.. none of the gameplay stuff ruin anything so i’d like this point..even a release date will just make it hurt more :'(

    • Mr.Pony

      Duel mode: The End, African jungle

      Aww yessss….

      • Shalashaska

        Gameplay time : 21451645416554515648472541546546454654165464hrs:59minutes

        • Mr.Pony

          and you can fulton him…if you find him

          • Shalashaska

            aw yes. that would be an S rank… keep him there for base invasions xD

  • PrinceHeir

    I really love The Phantom Pain sneaking suit 🙂

    It’s like a combination of MGS3 Sneaking Suit(even has the old radio from his right chest) and MGS1 🙂

    Can’t wait to use it! I remember Ground Zeroes sneaking suit is also confirmed to return, so i’ll be using these two suits for sure 🙂

  • ominonarepus

    What if the torture scenes are playable?

  • Cobra

    Given what an action movie wonk Kojima is, anyone else take flaming Volgin’s placeholder name to be a reference to the film?

  • Mini gear

    I need a fix of tpp news, its been to long

  • I just dreamed last night that the game’s release date’s going to be December 11th 2015.

    Kojima, be the man, prove me wrong!

  • vic boss

    Kojima just posted a VO session pic. I thought that by now they were done with VO, also does anyone know if it’s easy or hard to syncronize the voices with the game? We can say goodbye to March and April release for sure.

    • Andrea Feletti

      Cant answer you but I don’t think it’s that hard to syncronize game with voices…IMO their still recording the codec lines because there gonna be really a lot of them…a relese in june would be the best thing but I dont get my hopes up

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Why the hell does he keep tweeting stuff like this?
    I’m gonna be pissed if he is BB and not Kiefer Sutherland.

    • He’s just joking around.

      • ObsessedGeorge

        With him going through all that trouble trying to make people believe him that he’s not involved with MGSV, posting stuff like this doesn’t help him at all.
