Drake - Blade Trinity

"Drake is the creature from which all vampires originate. He is the only true pure vampire and as such has abilities greater than other vampires, including shape shifting and the ability to walk in the daylight. Sometime after 1,000 A.D., Drake went into hibernation, awakened by the modern day vampires of 2004 to aid them in their struggle against the Daywalker known as Blade."

"This intricate 1/4-Scale design maquette was crafted by the artists at Spectral Motion during the pre-production process for the film, Blade:Trinity. Standing 17.25-inches tall, the reawakened Drake is prepared for combat against the Daywalker, wearing a detail-rich, suit of reptilian-like armor complimented with rows of claw-shaped spikes adorning his shoulders, back and forearms. Drake wields a long sword with a handle made of human bone, and his sinister visage is well represented in the authentic portrait likeness of the sinister creature. Includes a glossy black display base with the artist's signature and edition size."

Who is Ray Harryhausen?

Ray Harryhausen was born June 29, 1920 in Los Angeles, CA and is an American Film Producer. He is more commonly referred to as "the father of stop-motion animation". He has designed some of the most memorable creatures ever seen on film. Most notably known for his work in movies like The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, Jason and the Argonauts, First Men in the Moon, Clash of the Titans and many, many more.

Unusal Fact: Harryhausen worked alone on his stop-motion animation sequences, sometimes shooting no more than 13-14 frames of film per day. Because of this, project completion could take upwards of 2 years.
