Kojima Reveals Figurine Prototype of Metal Gear Solid V's Quiet

Hideo Kojima has said in the past that he designed Quiet to be "sexy" for cosplays and figurines.

In two tweets yesterday, Hideo Kojima revealed two pictures of an in-progress prototype for a figurine of Metal Gear Solid V's Quiet. She stands in a bikini and ripped tights, holding a gun.

Kojima announced on Twitter in September that he He clarified a couple days later [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/127464-Hideo-Kojimas-Making-MGS5-Characters-More-Erotic-For-Cosplay] that he meant he wanted characters to be sexier rather than "more erotic." He added that he wanted all aspects of the game, such as the weapons, to be sexy. Model Stefanie Joosten, who portrays Quiet, said Kojima has a reason for why Quiet wears what she does but could not reveal more than that.

If Kojima's initial goal for Quiet's design was to market merchandise like figurines, the Quiet figurine prototype comes as no surprise. Until Kojima reveals why Quiet wears what she does - and even then the explanation may not be adequate - it's hard not to raise an eyebrow at her design and feel it's not exploitative.

Seriously? What in the name of Christ is wrong with Kojima?

Don't get me wrong, I like a female characters that have semi revealing attire, and I can understand when and where it can be appropriate. But, this is just ridiculous, it looks like a 14 year old did the character designee. Well whatever the reason is why she looks like a sex symbol, I really do hope her back story backs it up.

Ah, a bikini small enough to expose both cleavage and underboob...

Bravo, Kojima!

I guess Kojima isn't even trying to be subtle with this one, not that he was with any other Metal Gear. Is the next game just going to feature full frontal nudity and skip around this "clothes" bullshit?

And if she's a sniper, shouldn't she blend in with something other than a nude bar?

How is this Metal Gear in any way? If I even needed another reason to abandon this ship, this would do nicely.

I think all the drugs kojima has done to write the mgs series is finally taking its toll. First keifer mcstrokeface replacing hayter, now this?

If those are supposed to be tights then she has some scary looking knees. I can't say I am a fan of the visual design myself.

Although out of curiosity I did a quick search on google and it seems people are already cosplaying as her, so I guess he is right. People often complain about designs such as this, but many people enjoy dressing up as them.

Which is kind of funny, considering back in September when this was first news, the article ended with:

The original Kojima comment that sparked this off was aimed at cosplayers. It will be interesting to see what cosplayers actually make of Quiet; no doubt we'll find out soon enough.

Urgh, I liked mgs for it's strong women but by the looks of this, that has died ...

I don't think is a weak woman in the MGS series, Meryl ran her own unit, sniper wolf had seen some shit ... in fact all the female bosses from 4 had been through the ringer, the boss (what more needs be said?), (I've never played revengance but) Mistral sounds like she has had the same kind of life as Sniper wolf, Eva one up'd big boss, Sunny is a child prodigy.

The only average woman role is Rose but she is hardly a main figure.

I really hope this woman has a good reason for dressing like a cheap prostitute 'cos it would put a stain on my fanboy series!

You're assuming that she isn't already naked and just covered in nanomachines. And the reason she is wearing nanomachines (a nano-kini?)? Other nanomachines. That work for the patriots! LALILULELO!

Plus she's got nothing on Sniper Wolf. She managed to be sexy and at least attempt to have a functional costume. I'm still intrigued to find out just how Kojima is going to try and justify her (Quiet's) design, the rest of the game not so much.

That doesn't get any less silly the more times I see it.

Please tell me they're not trying to pass her off as a remotely serious character. If you want a barely dressed ass bouncing about the place then fair enough, but don't expect me to see it as anything other than that.

That looks awful. It's not even sexy. Tights with a bikini and half-laced combat boots? Did her house burn down and that's all she had left to wear? Not to mention her outfit makes no sense in a combat scenario. Maybe he should just make a softcore porn game if he wants to show so much skin so badly.

I've been waiting so long for a chance to use that reference with it only being slightly obscure....

I think that since Metal Gear Solid for the PS1, each game has had a segment where the male main character is captured, stripped naked and tortured, with Sons of Liberty having a full escape sequence where you must guide everyone's favourite replacement protagonist, Raiden, through a high-tech prison with only your left hand to hide your modesty. True, it's technically not "full" frontal nudity, but it was a start!

And the nanomachines have Foxdie!

Agreed on Sniper Wolf, but even she was pushing it a bit. Exposed cleavage in the middle of an Alaskan snowstorm?

I'm not sure he can justify her costume unless he says that he wanted a near topless female character in his next game. I think people would buy anything else he said.

Otaku bait. The term youre looking for is otaku bait.

And if theres an actual reason for her design, it had better be as big a shock as a stungun to the spine.

You kidding? This is kojima were talking about. She's going to be a broken bird who dresses like that because of some form of guilt or guile. Most likely being "lol sexually assaulted now dresses like that as some form of self-blame".

I feel like this is just disgustingly revealing, there has to be a line drawn somewhere, and I guess that I was incorrect in assuming that MGS was a somewhat mature game. Theres what someone would wear in a combat scenario, revealing clothing, and then there is whatever this is.

It's going to be terrible :(

I really wish someone had found a way to stop Kojima for doing this, it only got worse as the series has gone on. The days Sniper Wolf wandering around in the snow with her suit zipped down to the waist seem practically tasteful
