Here in Los Angeles, everybody wants to win a gold statuette of a naked, featureless dude. That's cool and all, but when I look back on my life, I want to see a career honor like this:

That's Metal Gear director Hideo Kojima as Raiden, a one-of-a-kind 8" Play Arts figure from Square Enix to salute his achievements. And since these figures have interchangeable heads, he can now be Batman, Master Chief or any other character in the roster.

Take that, Anne Hathaway! Oh, wait...

Do any of you collect these Play Arts toys? I like the look of them but they kinda scream "instant breakage!" in a frightening way...
