    awesome stuff 😀

    didn’t know Yoji’s first character is Solid Snake 😀

    im also glad he like Gray Fox, but i would have prefer Raiden over him.

    he’s just a beast and well made character, love blade mode and his laugh 🙂

      Well, his first character working for Konami, to be exact. But probably still his most popular character.
