On a whim, I decided to work on a kitbash, and having received the final parts today, I can now show it to all of you: Spade J from DAM’s GK line!
Wait, something seems off…
Yeah, definitely off…
He doesn’t look like a comic book character!
I like a lot of the early figures from the GK line, cartoony features and all, but my budget when they were releasing dictated me only picking up firearms I was interested in from the sets. Which is actually still the case. The earlier figures are quite expensive and I think I missed the boat there.
With switchblade. I was able to source most of the parts from the GK001EX version of Spade J, which I actually like more than the original release with the brown jacket and cap.
Hood up. The head is DAM’s Jason Statham from 78066, and the jeans are from DAM’s Spade 4 “Chad” rather than GK001EX. Spade J “Ogier” is a cartoony caricature of Statham. One of my favorite aspects of the GK line is the hilariously Engrishy translations of the ongoing story included with each new release.
This is kinda outside my normal wheelhouse, but when inspiration strikes (helped by finding a critical mass of Spade J parts on eBay), it’s hard for me to stop myself.
