Every few years remember about the Metal Gear franchise, go through the games, read the lore again. This year I found the MGS1 artbook I got when I was 11, and now not being 11 and looking back through it I’ve really gone on a journey of wonderment and confusion looking at the early versions of everything. LET ME SHOW YOU HOW:
Extreme Fishin’ Miller
Rad Liquid & Sad Liquid
Good ol’ Faceless Frank
Mantis concepts feat. such strong looks as ‘lunchbreak’, ‘invisible handcuffs’, and ‘dick sounds’.
Otacon and Otacon run through a tiny face filter.
Snake-Meryl (Sneryl) and Flamethrower Mei Ling who I am ASHAMED do not exist
Utterly terrifying Veiny Raven and less terrifying Mange Raven
And of course, Punk Rock Mantis.
