This is my attempt at kitbashing a 1:6 scale 12-inch Metal Gear Solid Zombie Snake figure because I didn't get the Medicom version when it came out, choosing instead the MGS3 Snake Eater with Splitter pattern face paint and "Snake Camouflage" outfit, an extra weapon and a fake Gavial head!
So when I stumbled upon this Zombie Snake head sculpt, I just had to bash him up with the spare parts I have. The new Hot Toys True Type Body (Advanced version) certainly helped to buff him up too.
This rather quick bash was simply to dress Snake up with black long sleeve sweater, STABO harness/ rig, tiger stripes camouflage combat pants, web belt with Special Forces knife, machete, Smith & Wesson Military Mark 22 Model 0 9mm "Hush Puppy" pistol and XM177E2 assault rifle (the Colt Automatic Rifle-15 Military Weapons System or CAR-15, Colt Commando).
I don't play the game but just like the face camouflage Snake painted. Usually camouflage is painted on to blend into one's surroundings but in this instance, it's painted to make him stand out and scare the pants out of whoever happened to come across him.
