Did you know we were giving away a PlayStation 3? Well, you better check your Intel, ‘cause it’s one of those fancy-pants, Limited Edition Gun Metal Gray PS3s, bundled with a matching DualShock 3 and a Collector’s Edition copy of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, altogether worth around $600.
We asked you to send in any visual representation of a Metal Gear performing a random act of kindness - and Hot Damn! - did you magnificent bastards come to the table! Our inboxes, as well as the forums, were flooded with adorable artistic renderings of the giant nuclear ‘bots displaying their oft-overlooked positive side. Never before have the likes of Metal Gear Rex, Ray, etc., warmed the cockles to such a degree without setting the rest of the body ablaze with military-grade ammunition. (And thanks to forum member anthonyjh63 for that spiffy Snake avatar in the top right)

After providing the above example, you folks took the ball and ran with it. Unfortunately, we've only got one of these things to give away. So barring any unforeseen consolation prize, we figured the next best thing we could do was to showcase your hard work for the entire world to chuckle at.
And remember: The contest isn't over for another week, so get inspired!
