3.75" Metal Gear Solid 2 Solid Snake Custom Figure By DirkMaximus

This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a 3.75" Metal Gear Solid 2 Solid Snake figure. This figure were done by DirkMaximus. Here is how he describes the making of it:

He's made to match G.I. Joe scale, and has a removable vest/harness thing!

Head: General Hawk v6 head with custom sculpted bandana and hair.

Bandana straps: Cut strips from the cape of G.I. Joe Trooper v2A.

Torso and hips: Snake Eyes v57 with custom sculpted vest.

Arms: Snake Eyes v56

Hands: Snake Eyes v57

Legs: Snake Eyes v57 with custom sculpted kneepads and leg straps

Harness: Base is from Cobra Vehicle Driver. Shoulder straps and pouches are from Alley Viper v13. Leg straps and the upper chest belt are from Snake Eyes v52.

The torso is really tall, so I shaved down the top of the lower torso and resculpted with Apoxie Sculpt. Other custom sculpting was also done with Apoxie. The arm joint areas needed some sanding to prevent paint rub. Used Krazy glue to stick the bandana straps in, as well as to combine all the various harness parts. The Base coat of paint was Tamiya light gray spray, and the rest was various brush craft acrylic.

Thanks to worldruined (on Tumblr) for taking photos! Hopefully she'll shoot some more of my projects.

Really nice job! Otacon should be fun.

I'm not sure, but they are very articulated, so probably!

I forgot about those, my sister got Solid Snake I believe, is that the one that can hang off your desk?

Oh, anymore MGS customs planned? I've seen some really cool Cyborg Ninjas made out of Ironman and Cyber Viper heads.

Thanks! I've actually got a start on Meryl, Otacon, and all of MGS1 Foxhound... except for Decoy Octopus. The Rise of Cobra Doctor with a gas mask makes a good Psycho Mantis.

I like those ideas for a cyborg ninja, although right now I'm pretty happy with my Revoltech Mini Gray Fox. Maybe I'll think about an Olga version sometime.

Thanks for looking!

Wow, I'm in love with this custom. The animated look of the Renegades SE really adds to the video game look, well done.
