Custom Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3

Now I've seen some pretty cool, jaw-dropping custom mods, but this one takes the cake, and that's no lie! Sure the MGS4 limited edition gun-metal grey PS3s were awesome, but feast your eyes on this incredible tribute to Kojima and the Metal Gear franchise. Crafted by Morpheon Mods, who is no stranger to other console mods, the entire console and controller is a combination of carbon fiber and midnight black done in a digital camouflage technique and protected with nine coats of DuPont Chroma clearcoat. To sweeten the deal even more, the laser-cut stainless steel marquee artwork is illuminated by 15 white micro LEDs. Not only is the thing built on a backwards compatible 60GB PS3, it's signed by Metal Gear series director Hideo Kojima and Raging Raven voice actor Yumi Kikuchi. It also comes with a custom carrying case and custom controller, features a Foxhound badge in place of the PS logo.

This beautiful piece of machinery was available for auction on eBay, (which includes a plethora of pics including several showing Kojima's "ooooh" reaction) along with a bonus bag of rare MGS gear. Just check out the list below:
  • A GA-KO Alarm Clock
  • The Complete Four Bottle Set of Revive 24 energy drive with all Four Limited MGS4 Items imported from Japan
  • Metal Gear Solid 4 Special Edition T-Shirt
  • Custom Embroidered Otacon Patch
  • Custom Made Fox Hound Vinyl Decal
  • Hardcover Limited Edition MGS4 Strategy Guide with Solid Snake Lithograph
  • World Tour - Launch Day Dog Tags
  • Custom made full size Fox Hound Hardcase for the PS3 and Accessories

Winning bid ended at a little over $17,000! Most definitely a purchase worth making for any MGS and Kojima fan. [Source: Gizmodo]
