Metal Gear Solid LEGO Minifigs by Saber-Scorpion Metal Gear Solid LEGO Minifigs by Saber-Scorpion
Ten years ago, back in 2002, I created my first set of custom LEGO minifigs based on a video game: Metal Gear Solid, the classic entry in the legendary Metal Gear series, which just celebrated its 25th anniversary. So to celebrate both anniversaries, I've updated my original MGS minifigs!

From left to right: Psycho Mantis, Sniper Wolf, Revolver Ocelot, Solid Snake, Liquid Snake, Cyborg Ninja, Vulcan Raven, Genome Soldier (!)

For all the details and photos, click here!: [link]

ALSO: I'm now selling a few complete custom minifigs in my shop, and decal quality has been improved! Check out the full update: [link]

I cannot emphasize enough how amazing these customs are......  you have inspired me to make a set for my desk at work, so you will probably be getting an order from me in the near future for a set of decals :D  I'll try and scour around for some loose mini-figs to work with, but one major question I've got is that mini-gun.   I can see which components you've used for the gun itself, but which pieces are you using for the ammo feed and bullet chain? I tried to find a photo of the reverse of the figure but didn't have any success.

Otherwise, keep it up with these amazing customs :) It's a travesty that you aren't getting more comments on your creations.  This is top-notch work.

Glad you like my creations! :) The ammo chain for the minigun is made from these: www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.… in the Reddish Brown color. Some of the Custom Minifigs in my shop also include the minigun, but not the ammo chain. Let me know if you have any other questions!

maybe if you believe hard enough they'll jump right out of the screen and into wherever you keep your minifigures

this is great. I thought there was flame over the genome soldier's head, then I realised it was actually a "!" sign :rofl:

how did you make these?

With custom stickers I drew on the computer and then printed. :) Some of the hair pieces are painted as well, and the trench coats are custom-made from fabric.

YES! I loved the old ones and i love these ones! any plans to upgrade the Rex model too?

I might. REX lends itself very well to LEGO since it's relatively blocky.
