Blade Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:13102  
Name:Blade
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Blade
Creator:MrGore  
Date Added:March 5, 2009
Base Figure:Bobby Lashley Buid'n Brawl
Height:3.30 inches
After watching all season of blade the series, in about 3 days, and then the 3 movies, I felt the urge to create a Blade figure. Despite of my love for comics, in the place where I live they don’t publish Blade, but I search about him every now and them on the web, and saw his appearance in Spider man cartoons, I used to have the action figure about that appearance, but it was stolen by the maid.
Anyways, I wanted to create the ultimate Blade, and my main influences were the movies.
So when it came to select the base figure, I didn’t think twice before I pick Bobby Lashley.
Bobby is not between Snipes and Sticky, he is Snipes plus Sticky, lol
I decided to go for the deluxe figure, mainly because of the leg articulation, since regular figure, can’t even lift the legs 90 degrees, maybe not even 45, lol.

Unluckily I didn’t read twice while buying the figure on a website, and thought I was making a great deal for such low price, and got a tiny deluxe build'n brawl figure.
I decided to customize it anyways.

Now, I needed to get the figure hands capable of holding weapons, I mean, Blade without his blades? That’s like Mickey Mouse without his ears, and speaking of the Mouse, Disney’s Jane father, from the Tarzan movie (one of my favourite Disney movies by the way), had the perfect hands for my tiny build and brawl figure.

So I swapped hands, and used some epoxy to fill the gaps, then painted the hands and legs black, his tattoos were mainly inspired in the series, since the figure is small, and lacked space for me to go in many details.

The sword was originally from a highlander the animated series Ramirez figure and it was changed in order to resemble a katana sword, and painted silver, the weird bladed weapon was from a Lunatica figure from X-Men 2099, I used it cause sort of looks like a glaive, and the crossbow was made by me with help from my girlfriend, with a projectile from a Secret Weapon Force Colossus figure, and the red plastic was a cover from a Chocolate powder box.

The sword and cross bow were painted it with silver Nail Polish, that's right Nail Polish, it give a really good color for metal weapons, doesn't it, but beware that it's very thick, so don't use it to paint where the figures are gonna grab the item.

Nice Work, even though I've never been that huge of a blade fan as my older brother I do know a bit of him for his influences, so here is what I think of this creation:
What do I like:
I realy like the expression becouse it looks a lot like blade when he is in the best of his moods;
I like the gloves becouse it was creative of you and looks good on him as he uses them most of the time
The sword is a nice atemp even though blade's has a black handle and is londer and thiner(yeh I know boby's size doesn't help much)
The other razor sword thingy looks like something blade would wear, even though it looks more like sumthing coming out of "the predator"
The tribal tatoos are realy well drawn even though we don't see blade showing those that often wich brings me to:
What I don't like:
He isnt wearing any shirt or anything wich is rare for blade
His head is to oval.. u could try hammering it, but I don't garantee his expression would look as beatifull(joke) as it does now
he is bald, I don't like bald people, exept for that time The Rock shaved his head, and that time Batista shaved his head as well, but seriously blade looks better with hair
What is missing:
Coat & sunglasses, blade isnt blade without his sunglasses
Okey I think thats all for my observation, and now you wonder why I took like 15 minutes of my precious (not so much) time to answer this and I know this is no excuse, but I'm on a train traveling and I don't have my gf besides me to entertain me so there is hardly anything better to do then to express my opinion about a toy in a site wich maybe 1 to 3 persons might read =D
Oh and sorry if that was to long but then again I only registrated on this website to answer this so...

I thought he should be more muscular than he looks, based on the concept of Blade, he lives to kill vampires, and doesn't need to rest, cause he's half vampire, and he doesn't eat, so doesn't gain fat, and all does is kill vampires, and train to kill vampires, so I thought he should looked really buffed up.

Looks pretty good. Seems a bit too muscular for Blade as he always seems to be really thin and professional fighter (kickboxer maybe) compared to the professional wrestler size.
