Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has released the first images of a new Metal Gear Solid V figurine for controversial character Quiet.

Kojima shared the images through his Twitter account. He also explained that Quiet's breasts have been designed with "soft" materials. This allows them to be "pushed and lifted. lol."

The Quiet figure will be released as part of the latest Play Arts Kai line.

As you can see, she comes with her trademark skimpy outfit and sniper rifle, as well as a pistol and knife. There's also an alternate head featuring mascara.

Manipulable breasts will likely make an already controversial character even more contentious.

Back in 2013, Kojima responded to criticism about Quiet being too "sexy," saying players will have a better understanding of who she is once they play The Phantom Pain.

"I know there's people concerning about 'Quiet' but don't worry," Kojima said at the time. "I created her character as an antithesis to the women characters [who] appeared in the past fighting game who are excessively exposed. Once you recognize the secret reason for her exposure, you will feel ashamed of your words & deeds."

The Phantom Pain release date is set for September across console and PC. As a result of a reportedly strained relationship with Konami, Kojima is expected to leave the company when the game ships.
