Gecco unveils two new Metal Gear statues at San Diego Comic Con – Gray Fox and Naked Venom Snake

During this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Gecco has unveiled two new Metal Gear related statues. First of all, a 1:6 scale statue of Gray Fox (also known as the Cyborg Ninja) sculpted by Yuta Fuke. This item is set to release in 2018. Only an image has been revealed so far.

The second is a limited version of Venom Snake in his ‘Naked’ attire, also in 1:6 scale. This one is sculpted by Shinja Yamaoka and painted by Katsushige Akeyama. This statue is on display at the event.

You can find some images of Gecco’s earlier Venom Snake statue here.

    Big boss looks pretty ripped here

    • Eugene Voldo

      Correction: Big Medic or Venom Snake, not Big Boss. We must appreciate the canon here!

      • King of Disgust

        I wonder what training Ocelot made big boss do in that whaling ship

        • Alberto Esparza

          Roids, obvousyly, Ocelot injects something to him, so…

          • Alberto Esparza

            the point is that he probably had a good amount of mass before the coma, and even when the mass is loss the nuclei of the cell isn’t so with proper weight training and roids it’s pretty understandable that he would recover his mass in a month or so (perhaps even a lil’ lower, something like 3 weeks). Besides in the game he doesn’t look that ripped like in the statue honestly

          • King of Disgust

            Yeah nice point . And that last sentence was something I expected people to point out . I mean his chest is flat in the game but then bodybuilders don’t make good soldiers .His hips should be huge with all that climbing he does.

          • King of Disgust

            Roids don’t make guys ripped . They just break your body shape boundaries . As far as I know the medic before he became BB was kinda jacked . I mean his size was identical .

          • Alberto Esparza

            they actually improve your capacity to recover more than anything, but yeah with propper training and diet he can “easily” achieve that amount of mass at that BF%

          • King of Disgust

            I mean since venom was in a coma , I am absolutely sure Venom took roids, testosterone pills and what not but I just disagree with you that roids make people ripped . But yeah I never said Venom took natural stuff . And after some looking Venom was definitely way less ripped when heworked as a medic

          • King of Disgust

            How’d that go over my head

        • No Place For Hayter

          Hopefully it involved a lot of Ocelot meowing.

      • “I’m Big Boss, and you are too.”

        • King of Disgust

          Haha I read that as “so are you”

        • No Place For Hayter

          The cringe is real

      • King of Disgust

        Pretty ironic for you to order me to respect canon when the game itself says “I’m Big boss and so are you . We are big boss” and then give us the title of Big Boss . So much for respecting canon

        • Eugene Voldo

          The whole MGSV plot was pretty ironic, because it shits on MGS3 legacy (suddenly Skullface were one of the crucial part of Operation Snake Eater) and this Big Medic twist… To be fair, I had laughed in the end of MGSV. It was so stupid! I had laughed for a minute or so and then hollow realization came to me: “Why? Why, Kojima? I had waited 7 years for a new mainline MG game and all you did canon-wise was this half-assed 4-wall-breakingish thing?” And then I cried :'(

          • No Place For Hayter

            MGSV shits on the entire series.

            MGS1 – Genes are important and make up who you are and control what you can do, but they don’t define you, and its how you use your genes that also matters. AKA the fat kid can lose weight. Your Genes are not all you are. Big Boss’s Genes are super important and amazing.

            MGS2 – Memes are important they make up your ideology they are your history your ideals, they make up your beliefs and views of the world. But Memes are not all there is, but they are important for the structure of society and a great meaning of life, to carry on to the next generation the selected means, the history, the lessons, to carry the torch, information. But Memes are not all you are, you control and carry means and you choose what to pass on. P.S. “Get real, you are not solid snake, you are an evil asshole for liking MGS for its action and violence, so here play as Raiden assholes, how do you like that!? missing the point of my first game, you’d better get the point of this one” from Kojima, lol.

            MGS3 – Scene. Your Scene is also a very important part of you and important and control the memes you receive. Scene AKA the times, your environment, the time you live in, the place you live in, the people you live with. Your Scene is hard and it forms you but it does not control you, you can work with the times, or against them, you can live with your scene or change it. Like the first two games this theme is about what makes us who we are as human beings and whats to be considered important and reflect upon it.

            MGS4 – Sense (this one is a little more vague), Your sense is your drive, your personal ideals, it is the sum of your Genes, Memes, and Scene, your Sense is who you are, it is your personal beliefs, your moral code, it is how YOU see the world.

            And then MGSV rolls along and is all like “fuck your Genes, Big Boss’s genes dun mean shit, any good soldier is just like him, just a little hypno magic and BOOM big boss” “Fuck your memes. You want a meme? not a meaningful message to carry on? not important information? not a deconstruction of power fantasies and violence? I got a meme for you, YOU ARE BIG BOSS!!! OMG XD you are the greatest thing ever power fantasy away and give that to the next generation bitch!” “Fuck your scene, I’ll hypnotize your faggot ass into anyone I want, cause I can create your scene” “Fuck your Sense because who you are doesn’t matter, what makes you doesn’t matter, BUT ISN’T IT FUCKING COOL TO ACTUALLY “BE” BIG BOSS YOURSELF!”

            MGSV would still have been a piece of shit, but it at least would have made sense from a thematic stand point if it wasn’t a MGS game, because as a MGS game it contradicts the whole message of the series simply for a cool power fantasy plot twist of immense stupidity.

            And that ladies and gentlemen is the tip of my iceberg of contempt for MGSV

            TL;DR I agree

          • ObsessedGeorge

            Soooooooo, I’m taking this as, you didn’t like the game?
            It’s been too long btw bro.

          • No Place For Hayter

            IKR, Sup!, hope lifes treating you well.

            MGSV had amazing potential. The engine was amazing, the mechanics were amazing, the world was amazing, HELL even some points in the story were amazing, and the core concepts behind the story were amazing. BUT the gameplay was INCREDIBLY repetitive, uncreative, and missing quite a few game essentials. The story ended up being a vague none existent mess.

            The twist still would have been broken but if MGSV had another few years of development, I’m sure they would have fixed all these problems, because I doubt KP is lacking in creativity, so my assumption is that they clearly realized early on they won’t have enough time.

            I mean as much as I sound like I hate the game, it does a few things right, but alas I’m not allowed to talk about the good parts because most people love MGSV and so I have to be anti mainstream as possible and only talk about the bad things in MGSV >..<

          • King of Disgust

            The mission structure was shit , the openworld was emptier than a ubisoft game , even the main missions felt like a ubisoft side mission and the side ops were worseeeee
            Yet I had a blast with the game
            Replay value is off the charts

          • No Place For Hayter

            Agreed, It the fact that I love things about the game that drives so much dislike for what could have been better, yeah still fun to play, the Sally boss fight is such a darn good highlight 🙂

          • King of Disgust

            The skull sniper battle as well and mission 30
            Personally I think the game would have been better if it was linear . Mgsv was varely sandbox unless you count Afghan sand .

          • No Place For Hayter

            Agreed, some dang nice missions.

            If they wanted to make it sandbox they should have really made the world interesting, because in its current state it isn’t, I mean you can capture tons of different animals and creatures WITH CAGES, but none of them are in the actual world, HECK MGS3 had tons of animals and critters lining the linear world and that was the PS2, lol.

          • Eugene Voldo

            I think this is the best post ever. I want to upvoted it like billion times!

          • King of Disgust

            I won’t even waste my time debating with this . Funny shitpost but hardly puts mgsv in a nutshell because most of this is fake tbh. But nice sense of shitposting. Just don’t treat it as an argument when all of the “facts” in it about TPP are plain wrong

          • No Place For Hayter

            Not shitpost. After all MGSV gave me all the shit I would ever need in life, lol

            To be honest though, no need to be an asshole. The format of my comment was snarky and uncaring. If you want to actually debate I have 24 thousand words of actually problems and well formatted complaints about MGSV if you’d like, I’m more than happy to oblige. In the mean time though stop wasting peoples time by replying to a post that wasn’t for you, I was funnily replying to someone who already agreed with me, hence the super snark and shitpost STYLE of me comment, if it was meant for you or for actual discussion it would have been more serious and formatted so. So don’t just jump in and say “WRONG” when it wasn’t even a discussion let alone one with you.

          • King of Disgust

            The reason why I jumped all over you because of the shitpost . This website needs you NP4H and when you do your epic comeback , you do a misplaced shitpost . Okay I really couldn’t write that with a straight face

          • No Place For Hayter

            Oh damn!

            Ok, message heard loud and clear, putting on my straight face (after laughing for a bit) I’ll refrain from trying to do misplaced shitposts.

            (Great now I have to put in effort)

            Since when did calling shit, shit, mean a meltdown? lol.

            Damn, I’m I really triggering this many people with my comment? I think you’ll get more entertainment from the replies and my further replies, despite your humour goggles that make everything into something funny and turns people agreeing with each other as “meltdowns”, the further replies will fit that definition better. Enjoy the view 🙂

          • radun

            MGSV is about the cult of personality. It’s about what makes an ‘icon’. And frankly it’s one of the best efforts regarding this thematic. It does not contradict anything important from past games, it expands on them in a brilliant way imo.

            As some already observed, it is the anti-MGS2. Where 2 worked towards helping the character gain his identity, V steals it from him.

            I suggest giving the game a go again, or maybe read some of the analyses, because it’s much more to it then you were able to grasp by yourself.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Implying I wasn’t around for months after release talking about and exploring the themes, ideas, concepts, and plot points with others, and fully analyzing them as well.

            “My logic is the only true logic, what he thinks must be wrong, I must inform this ignorant runt to try exploring the game and its concepts, and not to jump the gun on hating it” Yeah sorry but that’s not the case here, I played the hell out of MGSV and I also analyzed the hell out of MGSV as well as talked the hell out of MGSV with other people.

            As an example, I say MGSV contradicts the theme of MGS1’s Genes because in MGSV Big Boss’s genes aren’t unique, a Medic can run around and be just as an amazing super legend and do amazing things without his genes, this makes MGS1 pretty pointless as the debate of genes, whether they be unique and or better is simply thrown out the window. But NOPE you have to be right, MGSV expands upon the theme of Genes by ignoring it and tramping on discussion topics of the first game, lol, MGSV is so amazing, wow.

          • radun

            Virtually everything in V is about creating the ‘icon’ that is Big Boss. From the themes of language, expression, identity, to the integration of the very player at the heart of the meta-narrative, it’s the deconstruction of a ‘persona’.
            But, not being spoon fed by some character in a monologue, and having to actually peel the banana yourself, proved difficult for some dudes.

            I’m just kidding bro, it’s 100% ok to not like it, but ‘hate’ something like this? it’s kinda disturbing…you appear like a fanatic… O_O

            edit: The topic of genes, memes, etc has already been addressed in previous entries (in lengthy monologues), with the conclusion that there are more forces at work than simply genes.

          • No Place For Hayter

            I see what you mean. I think Kojima really messed up in having to make this a MGS game, with a series as long and with such diverse topics as MGS you are bound to step on the toes of the previous games, though before this was simply within the realms of story retcons, with MGSV it steps on thematic toes of previous games.

            If I were to look at the previous games the “Icon” of Big Boss would be a combination of his Genes, the Scene in which he was grown in and fed Memes through, creating his own super amazing and charismatic Sense, which is something I would completely agree with. If I am to then look at MGSV the “Icon” of Big Boss is simply the culmination of what others wanted to believe, and had nothing to do with Big Boss himself, because Big Boss is replaced by a beefy medic and no one can tell the difference, between him and the real Big Boss, which makes Big Boss himself as a person meaningless, only the Idea of Big Boss is what matters. And this approach to the icon of Big Boss I do not agree with, who Big Boss was personally and his personal drives do matter, a whole damn lot, and they are what made the Icon of Big Boss. Even if you agree it took the real Big Boss to create the Icon, it would still be dumb to think just anyone can come along and replace the real Big Boss simply because the Meme portion of the Icon was complete, as Icons and legends are not as great as the stories tell, stories spiral out of control to the point where the real Big Boss might not be able to live up to the Icon he has created let alone an imposter, it is absolute nonsense that a fake can show up and is not only not questioned, but performs beyond the status of the “Icon”.

            Long story short, I much more personally agree with the legend approach of the past games in the serious as I consider them more realistic and engaging as well as being more well written then the singular approach of MGSV.

            Yeah the theme of “Gene” specifically is about there being more than Genes, but it openly acknowledges and shows and talks about the fact that Genes are a thing and they do matter a LOT, they are just not everything, I mean despite how much MGSV would love to tell me, I could never be Big Boss. And here is something that is important to me personally “I should never WANT to BE Big Boss” Big Boss is a killer, a horrible man whom has lived a horrible life, he is personally a great man, but his life and ways of life are tainted to the point where he can’t live without war, and which is why he starts MSF, for him and others like him who have no place outside war, we should seek a world were they are not needed, not a world where we want to be the badass leader of the military group. The MGS series has always been great at saying “You shouldn’t want that, wake up and get a hold of yourself and realize whats really important” but MGSV goes reverse in this idea and openly and positively engages the player themselves as this large powerful military icon, when we should never want such a thing, what I would expect from MGS is to shit in our cornflakes MGS2 style and say “NO! jesus are you retarded? stop being so blood hungry and violent, enjoy and understand life for whats really important.”

            “I’m just kidding bro, it’s 100% ok to not like it, but ‘hate’ something
            like this? it’s kinda disturbing…you appear like a fanatic… O_O” Lol I guess I kind of am. We all love MGS, imagine it as a large pile of gold, we all sit there in awe, but when I see a piece of crap in the pile of gold that I so admire, I’m going go after that crap with all I can. But it isn’t just the things I dislike, I have always enjoyed ripping apart the MGS games and seeing the themes tie literally everything together in an amazing impactful package of immense proportions. But when I started really digging into MGSV the less and less I liked, for me it all fell apart instead of coming together. I mean you said yourself it expects to peel apart the banana, but is there really anything there? We all know the game and its story was rushed and incomplete, so who’s to say that there is much of a banana at all, and not just what excuses we make for the game. I mean for me personally I STRIVE for only using what I can that which is implied or directly stated or directly supported by the game, and this method has worked for analyzing about everything, but this method for MGSV nets me no positive results, I have to start filling in the blanks myself as the game has no answer, and at that point I give up as I should not be giving the game excuses, but due to the SUPER vague, and incomplete nature of MGSV I end up with a story I can’t fully analyze because I can guarantee you there are plot points in there that are not provided by the game and as such I can’t perceive them as being a part of the concept even though they should be.

            I’m rambling way to much, so I’ll stop here, sorry >.< but yeah I'm probably a fanatic, CRAP!

          • radun

            Yeah, that’s exactly what i liked regarding the idea of a ‘myth’ the way V pictured it.

            I always think of Jesus when debating such topics. A certain nazarene named Jesus mattered much, much less for the whole ‘icon’ named Jesus, than many christians will ever have the courage to admit.

            Also, Kojima&Co always scolded gamers for their blood thirst (i’m of course hyperbolizing a little) and V is different only because it doesn’t act as a judge like we are used.
            It’s true that the game literally puts you in the shoes of a villain, more so than any other game in the series, and while Venom gets completely corrupted by the end, fully erasing Demon Snake from his mind, ‘we’ are the ones that get to be the moral judges.

            I see what you mean as well. A well articulated point of view. Cheers!

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah Cheers, I’ve never heard the angle of “Icon” before when talking about MGSV, so it’s cool to have new angles and stuff thrown around. I mean most of what I do is disagree and complain, but its all interesting to me none the less.

            So I’m off to be a moral judge 🙂 Cheers

      • How do you know if he is Big Boss or not if we don’t know what’s real and what’s not in TPP?

        The Truth is quite obviously not the truth.

        • Eugene Voldo

          Because I’m Big Medic and I know that I’m not Big Boss. Simple as that. Cogito sum ergo. Checkmate!

          • No Place For Hayter

            Dang, way to turn that around on them, lol.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Agreed, “The Truth” is fundamentally broken, the times listed during the mission contradict the rest of the game.

          The problem here is that the entire game supports this twist 100% its not only the truth mission, even if you remove that mission you still get the same conclusion of medic boss. You’d would have to call the whole game a lie, and at that point I say fuck it and throw it out, and start a new theory. I personally label “The Truth” as simply full of actually mistakes made by Kojima and his team, cause lets be honest the development of the game was a mess.

          • I don’t know about Venom’s identity,
            but those flashbacks to the explosion and “crash” are not the truth.
            http://imgur.com/a/HY8Fw

          • No Place For Hayter

            All that’s shown there is simpy slight changes which change for no disccernable reason, and are from different games. These prove and show nothing as they could very easily (and I think so) be simply changes or ERRORS made on the part of Kojima productions of not being super anal freaks and a tight tight schedule.

            Now if it was all one game which had proper time and polishing, then I would whole hearty accept things like this, but alas we are left a product which is a mess, which the entire MGS community goes anal INSANE over and combs over it with a fine tooth comb of insanity. I don’t even bother though because the product itself isn’t complete and is a shattered mess, so I can’t pick it apart, well to be honest I have tried, but I kept falling into holes of simple errors in the game which have no plot relevance and clearly have no meaning, but if you don’t accept them as mistakes you have to somehow incorporate plots errors into any theories, and then you end up just making excuses for the game, I want to analyze what a game has to say and what it means, not create or assume what it means or what its saying.

            You can’t really factual discus anything theory related to MGSV simply because it has errors in the game and plot, well you can, but not at MGS standards, after all the MGS is INSANE with its micro analyzing, ruse cruising, and theorizing, lol.

          • radun

            present a few of those plot breaking errors please

          • No Place For Hayter

            Seriously? lol

            Ok, I will give you one off the top of my head.

            Venom wakes up and meets Ocelot at 03:07 on the
            11th, and then he leaves with Ocelot and the bridge gets destroyed and they
            leave on the whaling ship. But when the Real Big Boss meets up with Ocelot it
            is 05:59 on the 11th, and the bridge is already broken, from these two points
            it is obvious this scene happens AFTER both Venom and Ocelot leave on the
            whaling ship, and this is the error, Ocelot is both on Cyprus with Big Boss and
            on the whaling ship with Venom. Any excuse that could be made doesn’t work,
            such as maybe the real Big Boss just hid until Venom got on the tanker, and
            Venom took a nap and Ocelot came out and greeted the real Big Boss as he
            departed, this doesn’t make sense though, as Ocelot and Venom needed to leave
            NOW in order to actually save Kaz as they were running short on time, and it
            also makes no sense as to why Big Boss would just hid and wait for Venom to
            board the whaling ship before leaving. Whatever reason someone can make up
            won’t make sense, and most importantly, the game itself doesn’t highlight or
            explain this obvious error offering no explanation or supporting evidence for
            any possible theories and as such at best any ideas will simply be an excuse to
            cover up a glaring mistake in the technical details of the truth.

            I mean obviously though you think differently than me, you aren’t you kind open for discussion, so I’m not gonna waste my time constantly replying to a brick wall, call me lazy or an asshole, but I’m not going to continue a conversation that isn’t going to go anywhere.

          • radun

            You are grapsing at straws. The subject has been talked to death on reddit. Ocelot comes back. The rest is your fantasy i’d say.

            I don’t like to offend people, and i wont, but you seem to have some serious issues buddy. These kind of fanatics like you that keep on talking trash, i mean, relentlessly, ‘hating’ on a game (a !game!), i wonder how do you cope with the real life when it doesn’t fit whatever utopia you have in mind. Actually, i don’t wanna know..

          • radun

            As far as we know, Ocelot comes back, and that’s it. If that’s your game breaking error, then please sit down, you have an F ^_^

          • No Place For Hayter

            You mean, comes back after going out into the ocean on a large tanker????

            And like I said errors only crop up in “The Truth” the rest of the game is consistent, I have problems with the quality, not consistency.
