Mezco have opened US pre-orders for their One:12 Collective Blade figures, and with this the promotional imagery for the figure. Blade is essentially comic book based, but does obviously borrow a lot of visual elements from the Wesley Snipes Blade movies.
Blade comes with two head options, one of which is a very impressive Vampire snarling version. You can choose to use the sunglasses on either head and the body can also be adjusted furher with a variety of hand options. THe hands all have different uses to hold the myriad of accessories which include guns, boomerangs, stakes and a sword with a working sheath. You also get some nuzzle effects to slot into the weapons. There is also the standard figure display stand
He will arrive in the final quarter of 2018, and will cost the standard $80 with $20 being a non-refundable deposit if you order now from Mezco in the US. Independent pre-orders are starting to crop up in the UK, checkout our partners Toys in the Attic and Kapow.
The One:12 Collective Blade figure features two intricately detailed head portraits: an unwelcoming scowl and a bloodcurdling roar. No details were overlooked when designing the infamous daywalker. His outfit boasts a leather-like black trench coat with an integrated wire for dynamic posing, as well as a tailored three-quarter sleeve t-shirt and motorcycle style pants. Blade comes well-equipped to hunt down creatures of the night with accessories including a customized submachine gun with removable magazines, a pump action shotgun, his signature sword with removable sheath, collapsible throwing blades, striking stakes, and of course, sunglasses.
Eric Brooks was being born when a vampire attacked his mother during childbirth, passing on a series of enzymes that transformed Eric into a Dhampir – a being tainted by a vampire’s kiss, but not converted. Now infused with all of a vampire’s powers but few of their weaknesses and determined to avenge his mother’s death, Eric Brooks arms himself with weapons that are fatal to the undead and fashioned himself into the vampire hunter known as Blade.
