We miss you, Blade. Where the hell have you gone?
With Marvel rebooting all of their iconic characters and bringing them into standalone movies, mashup movies, and television shows, it’s sort of surprising that Blade hasn’t been brought back to life in any capacity. It’s been well over ten years since the third and most recent installment in the film franchise hit theaters, and though Wesley Snipes has been practically begging to reprise the role for many years now, it doesn’t seem like anything is actually in the works. Is it time for a fourth movie? Maybe a reboot? Or how about a Netflix series? Just bring him back, dammit!
But I digress. We’re here to talk about a badass new toy.
The Previews Exclusive Blade POP! vinyl toy, just announced and unveiled by Funko, will be available at your local comic shop soon, and it depicts the human-vampire hybrid in all his ass-kicking glory. Fangs visible and at full attention, Blade is rocking a pair of his signature shades and carrying a big ass sword, so be sure to keep him away from all the vampire toys in your collection. Unless, ya know, you want to let him have a little fun.
Check out Blade’s first ever POP! vinyl toy below.
