Hot Toys 1/6th BLADE Vampire Hunter Preview

Hot Toys is proud to announce the latest collectible from their Marvel series - Hot Toys MMS113 Blade II 1/6th scale BLADE Limited Edition Collectible Figure - a vampire hunter who is half-man and half-vampire that becomes the protector of humans against the vampires.

This collectible stands approximately 30cm tall and features more than 32 points of articulation. Dressed in the Daywalker’s movie-accurate costume of an overcoat, black jacket, vest, shirt, pants and boots. Accessories and weapons include: Lifelike head sculpt with Blade’s signature tattoos at the back, Authentic likeness of american actor Wesley Snipes who plays Blade, Sunglasses, Shoulder Holster, Two (2) foldable glaives, Two (2) extendable hand armors, Sword with scabbard, Interchangeable sword handle with blades, Five (5) stakes, Two (2) UV Bombs, Machine Gun (a heavily modified Ingram MAC-10 sub-machine gun), Two (2) Handguns (Heckler & Koch USP Matchs modified with laser sights and rail-like attachment), Four (4) sets of interchangeable gloved hands and Figure stand with Blade II movie logo and Blade nameplate















This is the BEST Blade figure by far and the details are all there for a 1/6 collectible figure!! Glad I didn't pick up Medicom's two versions of Blade. They both pale in comparison and let's not even talk about the Marvel Studios Blade action figure. Release date: Q1, 2010

Artists info: Head Sculpt by So Young Lee and Head Paint by JC Hong

UPDATE March 3, 2010: Review of Hot Toys BLADE Figure in hand. It's even better than this!

Barring Star Wars figures, I think it's safe to say we can ignore every other 12 inch figure company in the hopes Hot Toys will do their version of it, lol. I really hope they do Snake from Metal Gear Solid because I know they'll do a fantastic job.

HT Blade looks incredible! I hope they do more horror movies next!

Almost agree with you there Michelle except Hot Toys will ignore the lesser known figures which other 1/6 companies might take up which is good for us collectors. Case-in-point: Leon by Heroic and Josh Randall by Triad Toys :)

Alex, I think Hot Toys didn't actually get the likeness of Snipes. I think ToyBiz did a great job on Snipes's head sculpt as I got it from CSC last year. Of coarse, the outfits and accessories are well made by Hot Toys :p

hey desmond you know hot toys; they'll keep improving on the head sculpt until it comes out. just have to wait & see :) CHEERS!

Hope HT can get the accuracy of Snipes's likeness..Anyway, I will get this piece :)

Yeah, I'd say the likeness is pretty preliminary at best...look forward to the final version.

@lex- you should talk about the Marvel Studios version - real scan technology was used to capture Snipes' likeness...

hey bracken, any pictures to show? would like to see them :) real scan technology sounds pretty high tech and spot on
