    Sounds good! The full set woulda been cool, but I figured that would be too much considering all the new stuff on 'em. Getting both a movie sword and a toy sword is totally what I was hoping for at least! The whip is a cherry. I kinda like the idea of mismatching swords anyway; like he's got a collection and these are just two favorite choices.

    We all just need to buy two Blade figures. Problem solved! (I'm half joking).

    I didn't expect him to come with THREE weapons and have all that unique sculpting. They REALLY outdid themselves with Blade, and I'm sure it's because of Anthony Delongis' backing of the sub, offering sword lessons, etc. Hopefully Saurod will get lots of love too. He also gave video support for the subs.

    Also, I probably will grab another Blade to have two of every sword.

    Easily the best thing revealed this whole year.
    This is the kind if TRUE update every character should've received with MOTUC.
    Couldn't be happier with how awesome this figure looks.

    After something like 10 dang years of including Blade in ALL of my wish lists, I can't even express how gratifying it is to see such amazing justice done to one of my favorite all time MotU characters.

    Thank you 4H, for warming this coldhearted cynic, if even just for a minute.

    I´m not his biggest fan but he looks amazing!
    I really wasn't anticipating Blade either, but this figure is simply amazing! Such an impressive sculpt, 2014 is turning out to be a great year.

    Or is the face based on Skeletor concept art from the movie? Something about it looks really familiar...

    You do realize this is a handpainted prototype without articulation built into it right? This is one of those pieces held together with putty and is super fragile not ready for posing and functionality.

    I think Blade is phenomenal! I can't believe how awesome he turned out! I think the chain mail is a work of art and his face sculpt is seriously cool. I really like how they included the laser whip - I was planning on using the red Beastman whip from the weapons pak.

    I'm hoping we get Blade as is in the final figure, but I'm sure the chain mail will loose the deco and the "blades" on his shoulders will be rounded and perhaps made thicker.

    Best figure for 2014 hands down.

    I still think that crown belongs on Modulok's head/s, but seriously...DAT CHAIN MAIL. Blade blew my socks off when I saw him. He's never been that much of a must-have or stand-out for me, but now he definitely is.

    Such an amazing update. Loved Blade as a kid and love this update.
    I will also be in the "buy extras to display him with all his different weapons" camp.

    Blade is a missed opportunity!

    ... No, wait, the figure is AWESOME!! I'm referring to the reveal.

    They could have got Anthony DeLongis to come into the room and reprise his greatest role.

    'Ive waited a long time for this'

    Would have been a fitting reveal!

    Except he won't be released until May. There will be no release in April due to production stopping for a while during the sub sale. Toyguru said production stopped until it was confirmed that the sub was going through. So like there is no figure for September, but two for October this year, there is no figure being released in April next year, but in May we get both Blade and Scorpia.

    Blade is awesome! I loved his character and figure as a kid and this is just a phenomenal update. The whole sculpt is amazing, but that face sculpt is superb.

    blade's movie sword is sporting the wrong colours.
    how is possible that no one cares about that? even if there was a thread about this fact!

    the colours presented were added as a recolour when the sword was used for a highlander tv series episode.

    Well personally I don't care so much 'cause it still looks cool, but it wouldn't hurt if someone brought this up as a question on the Matty forums to get an answer. Who knows? This one is still a proto, so they may be able to change it.

    I dont think theyre gonna do it. first thing first is quietly surprising to me that nobody at mattel noticed the colours error. I mean, did they go through some movies pics and references while creating blade sculpts, no? how could they didnt notice the sword is completely black?

    So the whole thing about not getting a figure in April because of low sub sales is out the window? I'm glad because this guy is fantastic. They better not diminish any of the detail.

    Blade. Looks. Awesome.

    I'm guessing Saurod will probably be in 2015 as he will require a crap ton of new tooling as well, and also have a A-Lister (because as a kid I LOVED him. Come on, he shot sparks out if his mouth! What wasn't there to love?) in the mix.

    Wonder if how he looks will entice anyone who hadn't subbed to join up in the brief open window they're giving now that we also know Two-Bad will have no DOS?

    Im surprised he's not getting the same critisism Jitsu got due to the detailed face.

    I love him tho.

    Hmmmm... I wonder... Blade looks SO movie-accurate... Do you think Mattel might have bought the 1987 movie rights !? Of course, they won't tell us right away. But I have a feeling they might have got or might get the movie rights. This would ensure that ANY MOTUC character could be made ! I think it would add the final touch to the line, and it would create positive reactions, and maybe even prolong the life expectancy of this MOTU collection.
