Metal Gear Solid Bishoujo Sniper Wolf Is Painted


The Metal Gear Solid Bishoujo line was announced, with some surprise, at Toy Fair last year. We got updated art in July, and her sculpt popped up at NYCC. Based on past trends, I was expecting her painted around Toy Fair of next year, or maybe a little before that. Turns out it’s quite a bit before that, because she’s painted now! That was some fast turnaround.

I guess I hadn’t really been paying much attention to the art, because she’s so much more green than I expected! The clothing, yes, but in my head she was regular blonde instead of olive-blonde. Which is not really a thing, but it is now! Plus she’s rocking some avante-garde chartreuse lipstick. I wonder who makes it? So fancy. I’m still not really feeling how unzipped her top is, but oh my god the base and the dog are still killing me.
