Hideo Kojima Gives Update On ‘Metal Gear Solid V’ “Quiet” And “Raiden” Figures

New tweets from Hideo Kojima show off the final version of the Play Arts Kai “Quiet” figure, along with a new “Raiden” statue based on the MGSV: Ground Zeroes “Jamais Vu” DLC.

Following the previously released “Venom Snake” and “Skull Face” Play Arts Kai figures, the next figure in the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain series of collectibles, “Quiet” is expected to begin shipping later this month. Earlier this morning, Metal Gear visionary Hideo Kojima tweeted new pictures of the finalized product, emphasizing some of the extra features of the collectible. As previously revealed, the figure includes additional hand-pieces, weapons, and an additional head with Quiet’s optical “paint” (as shown in gameplay trailers, Quiet’s face paint actively changes). However an element that was not previously shown, was the addition of softer material used to sculpt the figure’s breasts; this feature is not typically used for Play Arts Kai figures, and is often reserved for more “erotic” collectibles, depicting characters from “ecchi” or “hentai” media:

Along with the update on the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Quiet figure, Kojima also revealed that a limited edition Raiden statue was in production by Mamegyorai. The new version features a white-and-brown color scheme for Raiden’s armor, and is modeled after his appearance in the Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes DLC, “Jamais Vu”:

Like the original version from Mamegyorai, the Jamais Vu Limited Edition variant is embedded with LEDs. The statue is currently available to pre-order through Mamegyorai’s official website for 20,366y/$168.67, and is expected to begin shipping this July; current pre-orders will be placed on “back-order”. Additional screenshots can be found below, courtesy of Mamegyorai:

The Play Arts Kai MGSV: The Phantom Pain Quiet figure will release later this month, with the Limited Edition MGSV: Ground Zeroes – Jamais Vu Raiden statue coming this July.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will release for PC, Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and 360 this September.
