‘Metal Gear’ 25th anniversary bento box looks crazy impressive

By / 12.18.12

Wacky video game inspired bento boxes are somewhat the norm in Japan. But this one for Metal Gear Solid is the new gold standard.

Sorry, I’m not even going to bother trying to find other examples since they all pale in comparison to what you see above, which was captured by the series creator Hideo Kojima himself (and who has a penchant for snapping pics of his lunch on Twitter) and presented to him by Sony HQ has a congratulatory gift.

As for what it’s actually made out of, according to Kojima: “Face made from mashed potato, seaweed bandana, hair and beard from green onion and eye bowls from quail egg.”
