The fan-event Metal Gear 30th Anniversary
This event ''Metal Gear 30th Annivesary'' is a fan-made event, made by fans and for the fans.
Its goal is to celebrate 30 years of one of the biggest video game franchise ever created, Metal Gear, which first game was released in September 1987 in Europe, as the result of the teamwork between Konami and visionnary Hideo Kojima.
This event will be about 3 majors plots, and is also unique.
Considered by the fans as ended, the saga will be exposed from its very beginning till what it became now.
So, through artworks, free-access games, fans will be able to commemorate all TOGETHER what bring us all here. This is the Metal Gear community.
For sure, who says unique event, says also unique guests. We'll do everything we can to ensure fans meeting people who made the saga possible, some directly involved in the creation proccess, some others who worked on their own about the games with passion. So, as we are also fans ourselves, we can understand what the community is expecting.
So, even if we admit that the saga is ended in its history frame and its creator now fly with his own wings, the best is yet to come.
The values of this event stand on these 3 plots, in which we will add some extra activities, such as a photocall, … and also a raffle, which benefits will go to the artists.
When the final schedule will be ok we will inform you ASAP !
About the meetings, we are still working on it.
We will have some artists, such as RGeek Creations and Dreamer_OldBoss, the actual drawer who share his work for our communication and also our press kit. All of them will do something for the event purpose, and you may know that there will be even more !
For the rest, be patient and we'll let you know as soon as possible !

The association Legacy
And who are we ?
- Raphaël Desserich
Also known as RGeek Creations, he creates dioramas on various themes, like mangas, video games and especially Metal Gear Solid. Some of his works actually belong to Hideo Kojima himself. At 29, his biggest work is a MGSV Mother Base diorama, which is actually at the office of Konami France.
Raphael met Raphael in 2016 during another MGS fan-event, and from there, the idea of making something special for the 30th anniversary grew up.
- Hadrien Giraud
IT Engeneer, Hadrien is a long time friend of Raphael (the second one, don't worry it's hard for us too), and also a big fan of Hideo Kojima's work for many years. Educated with what could offer the PlayStation, his majors franchises were Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy. Still today, at 30, nothing changed.
So when the two Raphael asked him if he wanted to take part of the journey, the answer was quick and easy : yes !
- Raphaël Mellin
Another fan of the franchise, Raphael, also 30, former digital manager in a photo studio, already made two fan-events in 2016, at the Reset Bar in Paris, with the help of Konami France. During the second event,, he met Raphael, because he asked him if he was interested to show his work, alongside with Tsuchinoko who lend some of his artworks.
From then, a solid friendship was born, and they decided to evolve the past events into something bigger. After that, he asked his college friend Hadrien to team up with them, and they all realized that they studied at the same place in the same time !
You msut also know that, like other crowdfunding platfoms, the main rule is ALL OR NOTHING. So if we can't reach the goal, we won't be able to make this happen the way we want to show you. But that doesn't mean that there will be nothing, just not the same thing !
That said, be careful with your hostel, train, plance reservations !

Waar dient de collecte voor
How will we use the money ?
As you may imagine, a fan-event like this one can't be paied by the unique will of their creators.
So, like many projects come to life these times , we chose to call for a participatory fundraising, also known as crowdfunding.
Its nature being fan-made, we told each others that the best way to create an event that fans want, is to make them participate, from roots to lifeform.
And because a big event requires high budget, a crowdfunding could sensibilize the community, and also involve them in the proccess.
The funds that we will raise on this website will go on our association account, but you must know that we don't make money on this for ourselves !
More details :
- Goodies production (Tshirt, pins, flyers, etc...)
- Official cameraman and photographer
- Photocall gear rental and photocall creation
- Accomodation and transport for VIP
- Accomodation and transport for Artistes, Cosplayers, staff
- Brinf everything from PAris ona car (products, art, etc...)

So, as the crowdfunding acts as a fastpass if you come, it will be very important to put on your name and first name, as we'll have a list to manage entrances.
