Raziel (Game Accurate) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:36465  
Name:Raziel (Game Accurate)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Soul Reaver
Creator:Whiskeytango  
Date Added:February 2, 2012
Base Figure:NECA Raziel
Height:7.00 inches
Earlier this year I finally got a hold of a NECA Raziel (or two) when it got re-released, and I really love the figure. A few things about it bug me though: his soul reaver is waaaay too long and droopy, his feet don't match the character model, his paint job is good, but really dark and has alot of weird purple highlights, and the remains of his wings are awkward. So last night I decided to finally do something about it. Resculpted his toes to better match the art, made new fabric wings that hang much more naturally, cut up and reworked the soul reaver, and gave him a full repaint. I like it much better now, much more game accurate.

I've been meaning to do one of these for a while now, as the soul Reaver games totally rock as does this custom.

thanks man. I wish there was a proper Kain figure to work with as well, alas... nay

Now see? THIS is why I prefer the old Blue Box Toys Raziel over the NECA version: the colors are just infinitely superior. Just like your repaint here. Top-notch job!

Totally agree with you!

@Batman: while I agree that the paint was much better, or at least less stylized on the blue box one, the neca figure is just such a better toy. I had almost a decades worth of innovation on its side though

Ooo, I'm gonna have to disagree with ya there man! The BB Raz was WELL ahead of its time, design-wise, and you can get him into just about every pose he ever takes in the game. And he does it without ball joints breaking up the sculpt. And he does it with flexible, rubbery wings instead of rigid plastic ones. Yeah, he's not quite as poseable, but sometimes less is more.

But hey, to each their own, eh? Yours is still a stellar piece!
