This is my version of Big Boss from what has now been revealed as MGS5.

My first post in the construction zone, so hope it's up to scratch!

You'll probably notice my use of some cannibalised decals on the torso. I'd love to see some MGS5 in the decal shop when it comes out, as I have no doubt they'd put mine to shame.

Nice! I can't really say anything bad about it, because I've never been a fan of the MGS series. Also because it's awesome. ;)

As a Peace Walker enthusiast I think this figure is pretty epic. The cut up decals over regular minifigure parts not only match the sneaking suit but give the figure a kinda 2D/3D mix where they almost stick out. The straps and the harnesses are all there and the eyepatch and face look good. I was hoping Scorp would make some newer MGS decals but I think he's out of the few recent releases loop. In the mean time, though, this gives me a few good ideas especially for a Big Boss.

 

I like it, thumbs up, all that. :P

The creativity of this is pretty cool! I like how you used decals and regular minifig designs to get the look you wanted.

Thanks for the feedback, glad you like it! Arbiter, I used a very similar technique to make the MGS3 sneaking suit as well. I think part decals works, as the sneaking suits have a form fitting layer and then Snake's harness and equipment.
