Blackheart (MvC2) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:12919  
Name:Blackheart (MvC2)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel vs Capcom
Creator:Jin Saotome  
Date Added:February 26, 2009
Base Figure:Gargan Venom
Height:7.00 inches
I started collecting parts for this Blackheart back in 07 when the TMNT animated movie came out. There was a 2-pack set Leo vs a 'Stone General Gato' who had the perfect spine-like mane. After keeping the mane in a drawer of parts for 2 years the body I needed was produced, that of the Gargan Venom with tail. The face from an original ML Blackheart was mounted on to a ball joint that allows him to look in all directions without the mane moving too. The pinky fingers were removed, bicep-swivels added, and the feet from a Resident Evil Verdugo were spliced on. A Spawn Gravedigger demon provided the perfect segmented-looking bendy tail for Blackheart too.

Blackheart's paint job consists of drybrushing/airbrushing three shades of blue and the application of a special reflective-iridescent paint to the center of his chest and surrounding areas. This gives it a completely pure white 'glow' even in low light like the character has on screen when standing still. You may notice he's missing his green/red demons but I'm working on them as we speak and should be getting them cast first so he'll have multiples to toss around.

Hey thanks guys! The right-hand electrical-flame-thingy was made from a DBZ minifig base and the blast accessory from a NECA Player Select Raziel. The blues are all custom mixes from the now discontinued Testors Fantasy line. Black basecoat, a savage blue/black mix, then a mystical blue/purple/gray mix, and then some morning blue/falcon turquoise mix for the highlights.

Weh, that paint job is the mark of a true artist! the details like the chest glow really take it from being a pretty generic character to something special, and I love that plasma accessory too. Good to see more from you Jin!

Those gravedigger demons come in handy for blackhart, I used them for the for the tail also, as well as shuma's tentacles.
