People Can’t Handle Metal Gear Solid “Quiet” Figurine with Soft, Supple Breasts

metal gear solid v the phantom pain 05-11-15-1

This is an editorial piece. The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of, and should not be attributed to, Niche Gamer as an organization.

So Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima talked up the latest Play Arts Kai figurine over on his personal Twitter.

The figurine, a replication of the character Quiet from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, has been quiet polarizing even before getting made into a literal object that people can own and oogle. You can find the shots of her figurine, below:

Here’s the thing with this figurine that is making the collective “progressive” internet lose their minds:

metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain-05-11-15-5

If you’ve been paying close attention, you can actually physically move and press her breasts together, as the supervisor, Yoji, made sure to point out to Kojima-san.

This is apparently crossing the line, and completely unacceptable, leading some people to go so far as to implement mass-bans on NeoGAF, as well as censor discussion of the figurine itself. The mass-censoring has led to hilarious responses from moderators like this:

“We had warned you to tone it down. You did not, and in fact, had community support to continue. Probably the most disturbing was when the picture in question was posted, some of you didn’t even see a problem. If we catch you trying to take over another thread, bans will be long.”

For those who are unaware, the Modbot is an account NeoGAF uses to avoid any single moderator from looking completely nuts when handing out bans and or regressive, shaming, groupthink ideologies. NeoGAF’s owner, Tyler Malka, stepped in to even supply his own batch of racist bile:

“As a closing commentary, Akihabara is easily the creepiest place on the planet. You probably really don’t want to buy figures catering to the otaku market segment for your own mental and social health. That being said, merchandising for anime/manga/gaming in Japan is so ridiculously depraved and targeted at pedophiles that it’s difficult to bat an eye whatsoever at this Quiet doll, which, despite any squishability, depicts a grown woman with human proportions that overall looks very much like the model in that photo of her holding it (which is neat), and not a 10 year old girl-creature in a maid outfit with ZZ cups and moe eyes as per the status quo.

Don’t buy otaku dolls and a big glass case to put them in. Thanks. ‘Til next time.”

It’s not just NeoGAF, however, as other realms of the internet are fanning the outrage flames – like Eurogamer. Writer Tom Phillips called it “seedy” and “questionable,” while comparing it to the newly revealed Raiden figurine, also from Metal Gear Solid, and basically implied for her to “cover up.”

Wake me up when people stop caring about the proper representation of breasts in video games, digital or plastic.

    The quality of that work is impressive, it really is. Not many figurines live up to those standards.

    And retards acting like retards on the internet over it?
    That’s great news as well, it never hurts to be reminded of how truly crazy they are, can’t discuss a quality game figurine like mature people without devolving into rabid crazy mode, it’s always fun to see them show their crazy leaking out in public to let us all be reminded of how immature and pathetic they are.

    It’s amusing that Metal Gear is the series that draws such ire for doing things like this. This is in spite of the fact that there have been several figures of Senran Kagura characters with a similar gimmick in recent months.

    Maybe this is what Kojima meant when he said MGSV would tackle taboo subjects.

    She’s no bowl of Special K(atsuragi).

    To speak seriously, it’s a statue aimed at a niche collector’s market. The way people were going on about it ‘rolling back progress’ was ludicrous. People like breasts. That’s not a crime. Someone can like breasts and want a squishy-breasted Quiet statue and not treat women like objects. This weird idea that the female form can’t be appreciated along with their personality/knowledge/skills is a little worrying, really.

    You can have products like this. It’s fine. If someone is going to say “There is a game that has a figure with squeezable breasts, gaming is not for me!” then that’s more on them than the figure.

    Diversity means stuff will exist that you don’t like but others do. If you preach diversity and then want something banned because you don’t like it, you’re not really preaching for diversity at all. I’d rather have gaming where I can play my Senran Kagura games or Girls Mode 2, and someone else can experience a first-person coming of age/coming out story or a harrowing text adventure about there being no baguettes at the bakery, than striking something out from existence.

    Me? I’m waiting for squishable, Stretch Armstrong-like Mastiffs from Metal Gear Rising.

    If he means it is creepy to have a six story tall erotica department store (catering to men and women, mind you) I would hardly be surprised, since he sounds racist, patronizing, and sex-negative.

    You know, Their bullshit Moral Panic just makes me want to buy it more. A practice in capitalist competition is you Don’t Talk about another persons product. If you dont want certain games to be made or certain products, You dont advertise like crazy about them. You just shut up and talk about how great everything is. And that’s really one of the big issues with SJWs. They are fighting Capitalist Competition.

    That’s one of the biggest flaws of the SJW crowd. Other then just being shitty human beings, they draw attention to all the things they dont like in such a negative manner that it counteracts any arguement they might come up with! In a capitalist society, you just dont advertise the other guy. If they just STFU, they could have easily pushed their “Good” stuff over other things and hyped it to hell and caused sales to rise.

    course they dont know this, because they are communist.

    This is HILARIOUS!
    As a toy collector/maker, my only real concern would be for the longevity of the materials used in making the figure. Generally speaking, softer materials don’t hold up over time and tend to rot or come apart rather quickly depending on the conditions they are kept in (sunlight exposure, heat, cold etc etc) so I would be worried if I was someone buying this if its worth the money and if it will last.

    1. Awkward scale. Most articulated figures that are produced conform to either one of two scales. 1/12 or 1/6. PAK is more like 1/8 or something and does not fit into a collection too easily.

    2. Really, really bad knees. The knees have been a notorious point of contention among collectors because they’re rectangular and rather long. On most recent and most of the armored characters that PAK includes it’s not so bad, but then you have stuff like this Cammy that happens too often:
    https://imgur.com/zx25pVq

    3. Stone face syndrome. This is really self explanatory with just this image: https://imgur.com/WHcDXGy

    4. Marketing photographs and the actual product have way too many differences. Anyone who knows about the line does NOT preorder any PAKs. I’d find a comparison image of Play Arts Kai Meryl that floated around as an example, but I don’t have it on hand, unfortunately. In any case, it’s BAD.

    Absolutely amazing! I’ve reached a milestone. I was directed here from a political Website.

    For the first time in my life, every single subject in an article is something I’ve never heard of. Not only that, I don’t understand any of the references. Is the character in a movie? A TV show? A computer game?

    Who are the people complaining? Is NeoGaf a church?

    That doll’s pretty cool. The guy holding it needs to trim his fingernails.

    Since I’m Latino, I never understood the breast fixation. If this doll has squishy buttocks, maybe I’ll buy one.

    Do the male dolls have squishy scrota?

    It’s a toy. Seriously, if you buy it, you’ll fondle the boobs once and go: ‘wow, they are squishy. How about that.’ And then you’ll put it in a glass case to be forever oggled, but not touched. At least she looks like a person who could actually exist, ridiculous costume aside. I’d rather this than girls that look straight out of kindergarten in the face, act like kindergarteners, but have the bodies of a pre-pubescent wet dream. Sure, it’s probably not the most progressive item out on the market, but it’s just a glorified action figure.

    I just find it incredibly offputting that Quiet’s breasts being manipulatable on a figure is a subject of HUGE controversy for them, yet these guys advocate pedophilia – not lolicon or shotacon mind you, but lusting over actual children – like it was a perfectly normal thing to do.

    LOL I love how Malka falsely conflates pedophilo with a doll of a grown, FICTIONAL woman, that happens to have “realistic breast” (i’m actually impressed by the quality of that entire figure). This is, of course, hillarious considering that NeoGAF is pro-pedophile and that any thread or comment engaging in “shaming” of people with a “disease” (the disease of wanting to rape children) is a ban worthy offense. I think we’re starting to see the nature of our enemy with pure clarity – sick fucks of all walks who engage in absolute hypocrisy while they force their grotesque ideology on others. I am so delighted they didn’t qualify for Press Passes for E3. No more free shit for them.

    No surprise coming from NeoGAF. I have only been there once and realized it wasn’t really a place for gamers after checking out the comment section.
    One commenter called FPS games murder simulators and was being serious about it. No one called him out on it either.

    It is sad that a figurine and the representation of fictional characters is more important to them than the actually oppressed real women throughout the world.

    As far as the Akihabara comment from the owner of NeoGAF, I wouldn’t expect anything less from such a small minded individual. It does make me want to go to Akihabara even more now because I am even more positive that it is one of the most awesome places upon the face of the earth.

    Do NOT support Euro gamer and don’t join Neogaf. They think shaming creators and fans is not only acceptable, they think creating a new normal out of lies is acceptable.

    They are the literal cancer that needs to be cut off from the industry. I also hope game devs and PR people realizes that soon.

    When you´re banning people who refuse to date transgender persons, when you´re banning people who like figurines, when you´re really banning people who have different opinions – you´re becoming the bigot, the fascist, the ignorant that you once sought out to overcome.
