So here's the Premium Package for Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater :)
Inside is the Shagohod 1:44 replica, packaged to look like an old Russian toy. Package shows Cyrillic writing at the top, which would have been accurate for the era.
Down a layer and there is an art book.
Down another layer and you can see the game along with another book.
And underneath the game is a small brown case.
Artwork from the game cover is different to the standard box art in Japan, instead using the US box art.
Here is the small brown package, and we can see now that it is a little disc case.
Inside the case, we can see that the disc is a Premium DVD, containing various trailers and footage.
Sticker warns of spoilers contained within the book.
This book is known as the R book, so has a full page of words beginning with R.
Another spoiler warning sticker, as naturally the art book will show some stuff from all throughout the game.
Inside the cover, a quote from John Carpenter :)
Weirdly there's a little section about Snake vs Godzilla, what I'm guessing was the inspiration behind the first save game conversation in the game.
Pretty cool piece of Godzilla art.
And like the other book, this is the L book, so a page is just filled with words beginning with L.
Really nice looking piece. Fairly small, but has a decent weight to it.
Has quite a good amount of detail in it.
At the back of the art book, there is a page with info on the Shagohod model.
And at the very end of the art book is this amazing fold-out artwork, by Noriyoshi Ohrai :)
