Kojima reveals enormous Ludens statue created by Prime 1 Studio

Earlier this year Kojima showed off the various Ludens toys during his SDCC talk with Geoff Keighley, and one of them that he talked about but hadn’t revealed yet was a 1/2 scale figure by Prime 1 Studio. Today Kojima shows it off for the first time via Twitter, and it is absolutely massive. The figure will be displayed at the upcoming Tokyo Comic Con in December.

    That thing definitely has a connection with DS

    Plot twist: Inside the statue, there is a Norman Reedass

      That looks like Hitlerry Clinton crying after eating chipotle

    Very nice ! So much details… Looking forward to seeing the DS likely evil robot with colors as well !

  • Punished Fox

    I really hope this has something to do with the bloody game because if it doesn’t what an unbelievably pretentious waste of time, resources, energy and life.

    • AlbertoBalsam/ShampooManLeguy

      How about instead of whining , you simply give a constructive opinion?

      • Punished Fox

        maybe sucking Kojima’s lower parts is your only idea of constructive thinking? Implying that the making of a stupid gigantic statue with no emotional or artistic background is a waste of time is actually the most constructive thing you’ll here in a place like this, since you know… that time could be spent developing videogames instead of milking the shit out of a mascot design which means nothing because the company it represents has yet to make it’s bloody first videogame…

        • AlbertoBalsam/ShampooManLeguy

          It’s starting to get toxic in here.Get your vulgar ass out of here.Flagged

          • Punished Fox

            You prove every single point I’ve made, please flag me again, every comment that doesn’t go along your fanboyism counts. No need to read them just hit it!

          • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

            So first you release a vague comment instead of elaborating why and being polite.We love criticism here.Kojima is not a perfect dev.Bit your comment seemed so vague and more like an attack.Secondly we don’t know stuff about the statue.Also you are being vulgar here.Explicit or not,it’s a personal attack.

          • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

            Also just because you don’t see criticism here doesn’t mean we are fanboys.All the “Kojima is god” comments are satire in case they went over you head.Write proper criticisms of a devs instead of attacking people to prove your point.It’s not about being PC or the criticisms.It’s just that personal attacks are toxic here.Hypocritical or not,I don’t like it man.You called me someone who sucks the genital of Kojima for just calling out your comment as vague whining instead of a proper criticism.The mods are tired of shit like this.Of toxic users like me and you.Let’s just stop it already friend.

          • Punished Fox

            Same way I can say the sucking comment was a “joke” but I’d guess you see anything that criticises Kojima as a hostile, toxic threat. I bet you utopic environment is a comment section where everybody loves what you love and there is world peace where we all love everything your god loves, sorry, you ain’t a sucker, you’re just ignorant.

          • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

            No.I just don’t appreciate it because it ‘s an attack saying that I love to suck dicks.In the Internet it’s normal.But on this website we have rules.SO, you criticize Kojima while playing by the rules instead of trying to play the anarchist here

    • It’s not. This is probably not for the game at all. This is a mascot for the studio which makes KojiPro stand out from the rest of the studios. They can sell it as a merchandise and they can use this mascot as an easter egg for it’s future games.
      It’s not a waste of anything.

      • AlbertoBalsam/ShampooManLeguy

        Dude You probably took the bait once again.

      • Punished Fox

        Boy, I really cherish the days when videogame easter eggs where free, fun, un-merchandised and had some meaning, wish I could embrace the new age like you do.

    • Full Options

      Pretentious waste of time ? That’s called art, as simple as this. Whether in the game or not, I like the idea of some frontiers between spirit of things and their possible switches to production. Like for MGS, Yoji spouse his own ideas with Hideo… Not the ones we may want them to be. I can’t get why you chose this nickname if you missed this point.

      • Punished Fox

        I can’t get why you keep answering to my comments if your fanboyism and blind love for Kojima simply turns your brain into a pile of fecal matter. Giving that “art” argument is probably the weakest and foolish thing you could have said. This mascot design was created by and for a game company that still hasn’t done anything substantial and selling that crap is simply a way for the people of that company to laugh at the expense of fools like you who consider Kojima to be some sort of demi-god. If it was the case of these individuals still working for Konami, selling toys of Solid Snake and all the characters that mean so much to us I would buy into this “art” bull of yours but as of now we are talking about a (VIDEO-GAME) company that is simply making superfluous garbage while waisting time, money and resources. So go to one of them Kojima’s conventions and throw away all your cash on that garbage, then tell me what this stupid vacuous toy means to you, there’s your art.

          Yaya, whatever… Go and buy yourself some education if you can’t acquire it freely. You will never get a point in this world if you keep it always that tacky…

          • Punished Fox

            A response filled with logical arguments and I am “tacky” and uneducated, lol your rage quit is so cute, happens sooner or later with all fan boys unfortunately. Don’t forget your blinkers on your way to buy the toy!

          • Full Options

            Hehehe… “logical arguments” like…

            “a game company that still hasn’t done anything substantial”…

            We are talking about Kojima Productions, right ?? xD

            Just read all your comments in this post, see how impolite you are… Face it… Nobody insulted you like “sucking lower parts” or “fecal matter”… And don’t insult fecal / bacterias like that because they likely have a lot more use in the nature than your poor behavior… xDxDxD

          • Punished Fox

            This company has yet to release it’s first game . Once more you base your entire arguments on your unconditional love for Kojima, I don’t really care if you find me offensive, people like you can’t see reason beyond that cult-like mentality and simply shut down when someone shoves reality in their faces. I remarked what a waste would it be for this design to be used as a simple mascot and you took that as a hostile argument, that goes to show what a mindless fanboy you are.

          • Full Options

            “This company has yet to release it’s first game .”
            If that was true, I would not experience the extreme privilege, pleasure to have such nice and respectful exchanges with you.

            A little piece of advice… Stop victimizing yourself when you get your ass usually kicked hard liked that. It is a quite generic and well known pattern for which you can clearly see that it will never lead you anywhere, makes you feel even more and more uncomfortable, aside tiring everybody around.
            I hope you are learning few things on the way…
            If not, just keep going, no pain no game after all !

          • Punished Fox

            are you telling me you are so unbelievably retarded that you think this Koji Pro is the same as the one that worked with Konami, all the staff, programers, developers, writers? Boy your remarks are not only stupid as in “I’m so desperate I will just think I won the argument and call that guy uneducated” but you are also out of this reality with your Kojima fanboyism. Funny thing is I could actually say your ass got kicked like 3 comments ago but I wouldn’t have as much fun as I have making you feel this insecure with every reply.

          • Full Options

            Who’s rage is “cute” now my young fellow ? But since you are visibly unable to formulate any single sentence without insulting me, I have no other choice to continue treating you as a little bird dropping.

            First of all you don’t understand my point of view :
            For example, I am not sure if I am a fanboy nor possibly ashamed if it was really the case. See ? Must be generational.
            Try to behave a little bit instead of throwing shit everywhere like a historically childish person.

            Second you have no fucking idea about the quantity of former KP that left for new KP. Some of them are also to the point that they keep it secret but few others are not, and they are not the least (progs, designers, etc..).

            Third you are the retard to consider new KP as a totally blank company, underestimating talents by thinking they’re logo is taking them all their time over the dev of the game.

            And 4, as a direct proof of my previous statements, and in case you have any fucking doubts left, just check that last trailer and buckle up now.

            Man… You are among the most dishonest interlocutors I have ever had… Always trying to get pathetic points with bribes of sentences surrounded by insults and disrespect to others…
            D.mn..

          • Punished Fox

            I don’t understand your point? Dude ha ha, I began saying the bloody Ludens toy would be a waste if it wasn’t linked to the game, you start bashing, is there really any point? Now in your ridiculous fanboyism tell me to watch the trailer to prove your inexistent point? Tell me right now exactly how? I didn’t see anything related to Ludens or anything that actually tells us how the game is actually going to be, it’s a fantastic trailer dude, Kojima is an amazing artist and editor. Now go back and bloody pay attention before going into another hilarious rant, does this notion have anything to do with selling a useless you?

          • Full Options

            Hahaha, wow Einstein, all is so always crystal clear with you..
            Now Kojima suddenly appears as a “talented artist and editor” ? What happened to you tonight dude ?
            I thought you said he was “unbelievably pretentiously wasting his time, resources, energy and life”.
            See, you are again starting to deny your own words and slightly make me and my pretended stupidity responsible.

            Just reading the lines you want wont make you less ridiculous than the stratospheric levels you hereby reached… Let me assure you that. You need an extravehicular suit for such altitudes… xD How about EVA, btw… xDxD
            Not talking about myself, but people around here are far smarter than you seem to judge. Whether regular users or mods, most of them are good friends for some time you know ? You won’t fool anybody but yourself.
            Fanboyism this, Fanboyism that… I will call you “Fanboyism” from now on…. xD
            By the way Fanboyism, look, I am glad you enjoyed the trailer.
            The logo / mascot is really nothing. Really fast for them to shape, don’t worry and stop crying like a baby once for all.

        • No need to call someones brain a pile of fecal matter, sir.

    • Machine Gun Kid

      Point taken but you could’ve just left it at pretentious waste of time. Just sayn

        • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

          Kids?
          Try to stop being immature and then you can call us kids
          Just sayin’

          • Punished Fox

            how was I immature, usually it is best to specify and explain your arguments, with every comment you behave like the kind of person I said you were, can you say the same thing mate?

  • I love how Kojima and Shinkawa made and amazing corporate logo that turned out to be extremely marketable, obviously Kojima doesn’t want to show anything about DS yet, so this is a way to make some money, and who doesn’t want a beautiful Shinkawa styled statue or figurine on a shelf to display?

    As long as we have more crazy designs I’m all aboard, these are levels of creativity from Mr Yoji that we haven’t seen since ZOE2, maybe the B&B and frog Units but everything else was pretty much the same-ish MGS recycles, they are great and I love everything he did for Metal Gear… But just look how weird https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6cf26cc6b4d5aa7f5899b4124800c7f094921db012e046711470e7b7840f2bb5.png those pregnant robots are!!!

            (Yeah I know he’ll probably got a lawsuit coz Kyle Schneider but I doubt Konami would dare to)

  • Machine Gun Kid

    I have a feeling this game is going to be about Norman reedus traverseing the galaxy, terraforming planets and becoming god lol. You kno it’s true kojima-san, just admit the real secret meaning behind the game

    • AlbertoBalsam/ShampooManLeguy

      You know I have a feeling that the ludens part could be just like in the book.The game is just like you say.Terraform planets to compete with the ludens’ superiority over Adam’s race.And then twist ending.Adam due to his tampering of nature , becomes a ludens or has been a ludens since the beginning.
      Just my gut feeling ya know.

      • Machine Gun Kid

        A cool multiplayer idea would be like the mother base fob invasions in tpp but on a larger planetary scale. I’m talking landing on and taking over other players planets that they’ve captured. So it’s a race to conquer each others planets throughout the universe. That would be soooo boss

        • Machine Gun Kid

          I’m copyrighting that idea by the way lol you all heard it here first

        • AlbertoBalsam/ShampooManLeguy
