BLADE (the Series - Kirk Jones / Sticky Fingaz Version) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:27794  
Name:BLADE (the Series - Kirk Jones / Sticky Fingaz Version)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Blade
Creator:blaynescott  
Date Added:February 26, 2011
Base Figure:Movie Cyclops
Height:6.00 inches
A requested figure of BLADE, based on his TV counterpart, played with actor Kirk Jones.

Recipe:
-Lots and lots of photo references from the TV series
-ML X-Men Movie Cyclops
-Jakks wrestler Hands
-McFarlane Escape from LA figure holsters (modified)
-ML Blade figure (sword, back sword holder/modified, silver stakes)
-McFarlane T3 Arnold (Sunglasses)
-NECA Arnold (straps, buckles/modified))
-Custom cast shotgun, modeled from a N2 Mad Max shotgun
-ML Movie Punisher hand gun
-Custom cast black resin stand

The head was sculpted from a Jakks pacific white guy to match the head/jaw shape of the actor using Aves, and the facial hair was added afterward with Citadel Green Stuff.

All the gear/detail was made from fodder, or sculpted, or sculpted from fodder.

Painted head to toe with Tamiya paints, and Vallejo Dwarf Flesh / Flat Brown mixes for the skin tone. For the clothing, I played with using glossy and matte Vallejo varnishes to pick out areas (like the Velcro on Blades gear-vest, etc.)

I'm having a lot of fun recently with requests for figures based on real people - matching photo reference art is tricky, but really rewarding when done correctly. :) Also, it's BLADE! I really wish that TV series got a second season on SPIKE TV. ^_^

Be sure to check out more photos in the thread. :)
