Death Stranding’s Hideo Kojima Gets The Devil May Cry Treatment With Cool New Action Figure
The gaming industry has several well-known figures, but perhaps no individual outshines any other like Hideo Kojima. The genius behind the Metal Gear and Death Stranding series, Kojima has become well beloved by many gamers for his status as gaming auteur and purveyor of culture outside of gaming, as seen by his social media accounts. Fans celebrating the gaming giant have frequently expressed their fandom in creative ways, with even Kanye West making his love of Kojima known in the past. Now, one fan has taken this passion to a new level with a Hideo Kojima action figure that depicts him as Dante from Devil May Cry.

Venom Fox recently shared photos of their custom Hideo Kojima action figure on their official Twitter account. The action figure body closely resembles that of Devil May Cry protagonist Dante, complete with red leather trenchcoat and sword. Where the figure differs is that the head is that of none other than Hideo Kojima himself. It is not confirmed whether or not the Dante body came from a pre-existing Dante action figure, but the Kojima head certainly looks accurate and lifelike.
Vault Fox has shared similar custom action figure creations of their own in the past, including one that turned Kojima into Snake from Metal Gear Solid. Kojima has even shared tweets of Vault Fox’s previous work with his many followers. This new Devil May Cry figure has not been acknowledged yet by the big man, but it would probably be safe to say that Kojima would approve. He’d surely cradle the figure like Norman Reedus lovingly held the baby in the Death Stranding trailer in his arms.
