A show of hands: lots of new photos of the MGSV TPP full scale bionic arm

On their official blog, Sentinel has provided some detailed information and a whole bunch of pictures of the full scale, 1/1 bionic arm that comes with the Japanese Premium Package for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

MGSV-TPP-Full-Scale-Bionic-Arm-1

As mentionedย before, the bionic arm is 50 centimeters long when the fingers are extended, and has a total weight of 850 gram including the pedestal.

The arm is made to look damaged and dirty, this was realized under supervision by Shinkawa.

It uses hex screws, just like the arm in the game. It has the same letters and numbers on it as well.

All fingers and the wrist have joined so you can make numerous poses.

The hand can also hold various objects due to the high retention force of its fingers.

    They should take a pic with the hand giving the finger, that would express very well how i feel being a western.

    • Chris Jackson

      That was the first thing that came to my mind, lol! It reminds me of Surgeon Simulator, when the first thing I did was give the finger, then got an achievement.

      • Vegas

        Or Far Cry 4, when I played co op that was the first thing i did.

    • Cobra

      Close enough?

      • Vegas

        O.O where the f*** this came from?

  • Vegas

    At least the half-size hand can probably hold that fancy watch, wich I also won’t have :l

    • Kol Leqejza

      dude, ur humour is spot on! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Vegas

        Sorry I don’t understand all english’s slangs… can you express what you said in another way?

        • Kol Leqejza

          now u destroyed the magic…

          • Vegas

            You’re going to leave me hanging, aren’t you?

          • Kol Leqejza

            your my brother in arms, i’ll never let you down!

  • Boromir

    What the f is a ‘guantlet’?

    • Romain Robin

      another word for “glove”.

      • Chris Jackson

        More like an armored or metal glove.

        • Romain Robin

          exactly. I learned this playing World of warcraft……. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Chris Jackson

            Ditto

      • Boromir

        yea I know what a ‘gauntlet’ is but in the 10th pic you can clearly read the word “guantlet”.

        So unless typos are in the actual game they f’d up.

        • Edward Wokhands

          Uh oh. I hope they haven’t started production, or this is just a REALLY early concept model and it’s been spell checked. You should Tweet MGO.

    • Edward Wokhands

      …a baby “gaunt”? -_- Sorry. I’m sleepy.

  • No Place For Hayter

    Why do they keep taunting us?

    • To be fair this was aimed at Japanese fans.

      • Chris Jackson

        Who are also getting it September 1st.

        • Actually, MGSV will release on September 2nd in Japan.

          • Chris Jackson

            Nope. International except PC on the 1st. PC international on the 15th.

          • Rogue Agent

            No. Nyxus is correct – Japanese release date is September 2nd: http://i.imgur.com/3V64O2n.jpg

          • And the PC release is also a day later in Japan, on September 16.

          • vic boss

            Well yes but they’re one day ahead of us, so when here is sept 1st, over there is sept 2nd so technically everyone will be getting it sept 1st.

          • Shalashaska

            Wont the 1st in USA ACTUALLY BE THE 2nd in Japan? Not sure though.. gotta Google that

            just googled it and apparently that would mean only a 12 hrs or so difference
            Japan is 13 hours ahead of Washington, DC, USA
            4:49 AM Wednesday, in Japan is
            3:49 PM Tuesday, in Washington, DC, USA

          • Andrea Feletti

            You’re right! XD never realize that…when in Tokio the time is 0:00 september 2nd, in London the time is 15:00 sept 1st (8:00 in Los Angeles)

          • Fair enough. ๐Ÿ˜› But for the Japanese it’s still September 2nd, and if we’re talking about a Japanese release you should look at their own timezone.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I’ve never seen a company do this with a game and I think they’re doing this to avoid spoilers. I think (well, I hope) something massive has been hidden from us with this game. MGS2 style huge.

            If I’m wrong it will still be an incredible game but there’s something weird about how secretive Kojima is being and how the trailers show the same things over and over again just from different angles and at slightly different times. Plus Troy Baker said that the game does something bold and he’s curious about the player’s reaction to it. Dear god, just when I got Phantom Pain off my mind the hype is BACK!

          • Dizz

            Wow, I didn’t know the PC release was behind (I guess I should stop being surprised by this).

            Kojima needs to stop kissing executive ass and taking corporate dollars under the table for console exclusive release date douchebaggery. Gonna have to coin that term, CERDD.

            It’s still 6 months before release, I fail to see why a game that was originally coded for PC has to be released later. Much $$$, very contract. Bs, wow.

          • MrVux007

            cuz the game wasnt originally planned for PC? i still dont see why are you angry about the release date? and pls leave non-sensical comments behind like ….*Kojima needs to stop kissing executive ass and taking corporate dollars
            under the table for console exclusive release date douchebaggery. Gonna
            have to coin that term, CERDD.*…. the game is coming to PC the same YEAR as the consoles do(unlike other MGS console ports..with the exception of MGS3 and MGS4)… they even made an upgraded version of Ground Zeroes for PC (with better lighting and drawing distance)wich could have been easily made for current gen consoles…and you still find a * reason * to whine ? im happy that this game is coming out this year,not becouse the console version is coming few days before the PC date….im happy about the game itself,a game series that i followed since 1998….and if you are mad about that particular thing,then you are no fan im my eyes….. just go to the sites like PC-GAMER or PC-MASTERRACE,you will fit right in mate…

          • Please stop making baseless accusations. They’re using that time to work on the PC version. It’s a small team.

          • Gatsu

            These comments should be left to Steam forums. PC versions sometimes takes longer

          • Alex

            Which is September 1st for the West lol.

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        But, but, but… I’m not Japanese and I want one ๐Ÿ™ !

  • Romain Robin

    Interesting to see the markings “Please don’t use whathevernum lubicrants”. So maybe we will need to refill the prosthetic arm with a consummable ressource to keep it working (consummable like gun suppressors). That’s why we have seen Big Boss in the chopper with an I.V needled into the prosthetic. That would be fun.
    Or maybe the prostethic lubrication is the main “ressource” in the game, such as the stress / stamina / grip bar in previous games. Once your arm gauge is empty, you can’t use the arm and become useless as hell on the battlefield.

    Maybe I’m going to far and that the IV really was for Big Boss’s body and not the prosthetic, but given that Snake can move the robot arm, it’s easily implied that it is directly plugged onto his nerve system and blood vessel, so some sockets directly connected to the blood veins can be accessed from the robot arm to heal Big Boss.

    • Silverius

      I really hope they explain the interface within the arm and his nervous system i’m quite interested in that, as well as who aids Big boss outfitting him with the Phantom arm. My money is on Dr. Madnar.

      • Romain Robin

        Well, Dr. Madnar from MG1’s codec thumbnail really looks like the bald doctor in the hospital scene, so it’s likely that it is him. Maybe Big boss recruits him when he arrives in Mother Base so he can have a medical staff that already know well his case.

  • Gatsu

    Maaan this is soooo sexy, goddamn :O! Everyone who get this, you’re pretty good :).

    And me too? Hmm wait a sec… >:O

  • Bramdeman

    I don’t have enough space for this in my bedroom. XD

    • Edward Wokhands

      LOL! Do you live in a glove?

  • Tibor

    I would like even that half scale one but well, I gues that’s the curse of being a PC player ๐Ÿ˜€

    • MrVux007

      CE for PC isn’t ruled out yet mate …

  • vic boss

    Hey everyone who didn’t get a chance yesterday or 4 days ago, there are more CE available at gamestop NA.

    • Gatsu

      Nice thx for the info:), hurry up and get it brothers :D.

    • Oh, back again? It was sold out earlier today.

    • Hells yeah, finally grabbed one, many thanks for the heads up man.

      • Edward Wokhands

        Awesome!

    • It was available yesterday to me, eventhough I’m from Brazil, but I didn’t pre-order it because what the hell they tried to make me pay extra U$64,99 for delivering it here lol. No thanks.

    • Dizz

      They seriously need a collectors edition for PC.. sick of this console special treatment crap.. oh well, PC version will be better in every way lol.

  • Gatsu

    A bit off-topic but this was so awesome :O, Ramuh ftw. I can’t wait to see the other summons in FFXV!
    When do you folks think this game releases, Q1 2016?

    • turkishgamer35

      looks amazing FF 15 gonna be the best looking game on ps4/xbox one about release date imo Q4 2016 or Q1 2017

      • Gatsu

        Hmmm yeah…maybe it release so late :(. Anyway, I love MGS and FF so really looking forward to XV =). Glad to see they both try be different and open world style.

        • Edward Wokhands

          I’ve got a feeling that 15 will go down as a classic alongside 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. They look like they really care about this game. Plus it looks like it isn’t scared to have a sense of humor which is something that people seem to forget about FF games. 13 was SOOOO dull because it took itself too seriously. (Same goes for most AAA games. The last Tomb Raider comes to mind.)

        • turkishgamer35

          same here bro mgs,FF and resident evil my favorite games since PS1 days

    • Edward Wokhands

      Is this from the demo or an official SE release? I don’t want to watch! Just that screenshot looks incredible. I seriously can’t wait for this game, demo arrives in 2 days!

  • Maynard

    can we use it TO disabled child LOL

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    Man, I really hope they sell this arm outside of Japan ๐Ÿ™‚ !

  • Shalashaska

    hahaha i dont know why but my mind SERIOUSLY went into perv mode about half way through. I thought “Damn… this is probably the best female toy i’ve seen” .. ahh if only i was a female, i’d drop my pants for Big Boss’s hand ๐Ÿ˜›

    http://weknowmemes.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/that-makes-me-moist.jpg

  • Yeah, I’m getting this one. The CE one is way to small for my liking.
    I mean, lookit!…. It can grab hold of the DS4!!!!!! DANG!

    • Edward Wokhands

      Yeah, I pre-ordered the CE and am a little disappointed about the size. If I can find a full size one I’ll probably try to get it. It just looks incredible.

      • Hey Edward…
        The manufacturer of the 1:1 Scale Bionic Arm is considering to release it outside Japan.
        Since we have several more months to launch day, I say the odds are pretty great. Even
        Sony is considering about releasing the MGS V PS4 LE console to the West. There’s hope!

  • Fred Quadros

    The lingering question: How Snake CONTROLS this prosthetic arm, in the game?

    • Mr.Pony

      They say it’s

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      I’m guessing it’ll be connected to his nervous system somehow.

    • Edward Wokhands

      The same way real prosthetic arms are controlled. I recently saw a monkey that was controlling prosthetic legs over the internet with it’s brain. People always call Kojima’s ideas magic and they’re always proven wrong a few years later. Konami look at ideas that are pretty early into development and use them. It happened in every game. 2, 3 and 4 and now 5. Even the psychological manipulation on the battlefield from MGS4 was already being used in real life around 2004 or 5. Just not with nano machines.

  • PrinceHeir

    Looking awesome!

    I would like an MGS that would take place in the future with augmentations ala Deus Ex style.

    That would be ace!

    Love the arm, but that price is gonna cost an arm or two for me :I

    • Golgari

      MGS that would take place in the future with augmentations would be fantastic. Sadly, Kojima won’t do it.
      but we had great MGS4 that was futuristic more or less.

  • Icycool

    I was going to order it but when i saw $500 price tag I stalled. As full time university and part time working student i can’t afford it. Damn I wish I had courage to ask money from my dad.

    • glitchbomb

      I got mine for 448. But yeah. I hear you.
      The only reason I was able to grab this version was because i had been prepared for a a while. I knew one was coming but I was not sure how much it would be.

      • Icycool

        I don’t have a ps4. I was waiting for limited edition. Considering how TPP themed ps4 seems unlikely to release in US. I am thinking of importing one from Japan. So either I can have a ps4 at may be $700 or buy Collectors from japan. I went with eariler one.

      • Alex

        Yea, with PayPal Credit I was able to do the same. I didn’t have 448 right off the bat, but I have 6 months to pay it off.

  • MrVux007

    this much hype gave me an inspiration to make myself an challenge…to draw my own Big Boss……on MS-PAINT (yes,yes i know it would be easier with PHOTOSHOP,but where is fun in that? :D) aaaaand……with no drawing panel….just good ol keyboard and mouse…heres how it looks like after around 8 hours of work

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Woah dude! This rocks! (in Guns of the Awesome voice!)

    • Marxal

      That’s looking crazy already man. Saying you’re pretty good is an understatement.

    • decoyF0XX

      Dude this looks sick! Really ambitious.

    • LuxAlike

      I approve. CRAP, I love the texture.

    • MrVux007

      Thanks for the comments guys…it really motivates me to keep going thru this jigsaw puzzle(thats how i like to call all mine Paint drawings) ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Golgari

      You really did that in MS Paint? Wow…
      I wonder what you can do in Photoshop.

    • Gatsu

      Looks superb :D, and done with Paint damn.. that cant be easy. Keep up the great work Vux :)!

    • Edward Wokhands

      Wow! The shading on the left above the eye patch is crazy! I just started learning to draw not long ago. I could even do this in Gimp or Photoshop! I did challenge myself to draw a pixelart Big Boss not long ago, I might do it now. You inspirational bastard!

      Could you check out my deviantart and give me some tips maybe? You’re obviously crazily talented. http://theriggermortis.deviantart.com/

      I’m trying to learn how to draw so I can make some sprites for games. Been slowly learning for a few months. I drew a pixel art Walter White on there and stuff. It’d be great to get your opinion.

      • MrVux007

        hahah…well first thank you your lovely compliments…that coming from a fellow artist means great deal for me,sure i checked you deviantart profile(i use to use it aswell for a while,but im just darn lazy to post stuff anymore since im to busy,i barely have time for the Big Boss one) …. if you started to learn not to long ago,then i see you becoming a legend in that art program,cuz not only the Walter White drawing is hilarious,but its also pretty darn persuasive….but we are both using different styles,so it takes lots of trial and error to adapt to those styles…the only decent advice i can give you is that you look at the PAINT program as a puzzle(as in zooming in 200%-300% and then working out every pixel of the painting) i know it sounds crazy when i put it like that,but to me its really time consuming (and especially if your listening to your favorite music) and most of all fun….and nerve wrecking aswell ^^ i dont need to give you advice,you seem to be going the right way,mate…..cheers,and continue kicking ass!

        • Edward Wokhands

          Thanks so much for the reply and encouragement. It’s SO hard to get advice or an opinion from good artists. Yeah, I got my tablet around November last year but was too busy to touch it from around December until maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago. I used to scribble here and there on paper but now I want to really learn, videogame art is hard!

          What’s your deviantart? You should upload to it and add me on there. :p You’re too good to not have an account.

          Since it’s hard to find tutorials I’ve actually been doing exactly what you just said, zooming in on pictures and seeing what color individual pixels are. Small details are really hard for me, you know creases in clothing and face wrinkles, getting the right color and stuff (like on that drunk bearded blind dude I only found through trial and error that purple worked as a shadow on brown ?_?) that kind of thing. I guess I should keep doing that, it sounds like it worked for you! Keep uploading your paint Big Boss, I’m in awe of it. Thanks again, I’m glad you enjoyed Walter White, I’ve uploaded it to maybe 4 sites now and you’re the only person to give an opinion on it. It’s so hard to just get people to comment on your work. : You have to be AMAZING to get any attention.

          I’m gonna work on an animated pixel art Big Boss starting today thanks to you. Keep up the awesomeness!

          edit: I just realized, you’re actually doing pixel art too… just a REALLY high resolution version.

          • MrVux007

            my name on deviant art is MrVux007…..but i only uploaded two
            pictures…one is cool and the other is meh…yes i make a high
            resolution of each of the body part (in this case the head).and then i
            minimize it so that it fits to the rest of the body… but right now the
            only plan is to draw BB head and upper torso…not sure if i will draw
            the whole body….here is the video speed painting of my style…i made
            it loong time ago(and it wasnt the first as it says in the video….typo mistake :D) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_YE4Qo5z14

          • Edward Wokhands

            That’s so cool. (I just realized, I wonder if Kojima made Big Boss based on Clint Eastwood? There’s something similar about them.) I guess Paint is the closest you can get to drawing on paper on a computer. Since I started I’ve found myself relying on layers and ctrl+z WAYYY to much. If I tried paint or an actual piece of paper there’s no way I could do it.

            I’ll add you on Deviantart. Looking forward to seeing your progress on Big Boss. You should draw skullface next. :p I bet that’d be tough.

          • MrVux007

            actually skullface would be easier since he doesnt have hair ^^

    • Shalashaska

      woah woah woah.. wait a minute there Yoji Shinkawa.. THAT IS AMAZING!

          Enjoy but please, when you’re done with your drawing, please share man! that is awesome !

            will do,Sir!

    • Vegas

      Looking good, Snake xD

  • MAG V Supreme

    When the mgsv trailer said ” something to surpass metal gear” how about this arm being a symbol of the thing that will surpass metal gear. In other words, snake becomes the new type of metal gear by wearing “metal gear” aka bionic arm. Looping the series into grey fox ninja suit. Putting the theories of a different imposter for punish snake deeper in grey fox being it. Trying to have fun and simulate your minds people. I have loads of great ideas just wanted to share one…

      Which trailer says “something to surpass metal gear”? Is it a narrator or text on screen?

      • MAG V Supreme

        Cipher is conducting new research in Africa, a “weapon to surpass Metal Gear”. E3 extended version. oceolot says it. When you see snake on mini metal gear

      • MAG V Supreme
        • Edward Wokhands

          Damn! If you ruined this game for me… ยฌ_ยฌ

          I kind of hope you’re wrong… (just for spoilers) but now I can’t stop thinking about it… what the hell can surpass Metal Gear? Or well, it’ll be something that they THINK will surpass Metal Gear but probably won’t… and Grey Fox fits that description perfectly… damn you!

          • MAG V Supreme

            Im a writer so every week i come up with new plots for how it will turn out for tpp but lets be clear kojima is A Master. All the hundreds of theories wont be at all right. Most likely it will be a combination of theories In one. I actually have alot of more complex concepts for how it should play out. I will share more other times. The way i see it, i have 6 months to enjoy discussions with my cousins and friends who are fans of mgs. Also this site and others are cool. Never been so absorbed by any game or entertainment than mgs. Grateful for the mind simulation. I read 1984, moby dick. Tons of stuff kojima said were influences for tpp just to feel the theme and concepts. No other game can ever make me do that. Got to love it.

  • decoyF0XX

    Oh god I can’t wait for the future, when we can finally have fully functional bionic hands like these. I know someone that would gladly give up his hand for this bad boy XD

  • psychomantis18

    God i’m envious of all the amputees ordering this.

    Oh lawdy…
