    Custom Vinny0026 -AKA Vin’s Universe – Wesley Snipes as Blade also known as The Day Walker!

    Vinny0026 -AKA Vin’s Universe – Wesley Snipes as Blade also known as The Day Walker!
    (This version is based upon how he looked in the Original Blade movie)

    This one took a while to get all the details right –Just finished him up last night
    This INSANELY Awesome Head was made and painted by Black Knight – Big Thanks J!
    (Truth be told – without this Amazing Head I would never have even had bothered to make this figure)

    The Body is a Type S – Leather jacket & Pants are from CTV
    The “Perfect Shades” came from Laser Mego – Big Thanks to Paul for making them & getting them to me fast!

    I pretty much made the rest of this from scratch – I made the vest and chest plates from scratch.
    I made ALL the black straps and red stripes from scratch, Along with his Leg Holster and Spike Holster.

    I made & pieced together the parts for the Harpoon Gun/Spike Gun/ Spike Cannon
    His Sword is a Repainted Marvel Select Sword.

    His “Blade-A-Rang” came off an old Blade figure – that I tweaked and painted
    His Spikes are made from Little Pinewood Derby Axels. (These came out a little ruff when I cut the heads off – I will modify or upgrade these at some point.

    He is awaiting an Awesome CardBacker from Toyroom – Once I get that I will send an updated pic of how he looks in a clam shell with the cardbacker. I was too excited to wait and wanted to just get him posted – lol.

    Thanks for looking
    Enjoy!

    Wow! Wow! Wow!

    He turned out perfect! I can't believe the detail you captured. I'm glad I was able to help a tiny bit.

    Thank You everyone -
    Paul it is the "Tiny Bit" or Tiny things that really make these customs pop - Those glasses are a huge part of his overall detail, such a huge part of his character - really you nailed those glasses I really appreciate you helping me out with them

    Same with the Head - if J did not make & paint it for me - I would never have made this figure
    He really did an outstanding job on this one - so again big thanks to him as well.

    Love looking at obvious "labor of love" projects like this figure. Well done, Vin!
