Okay, with the 6" Bandai figure, the gunblade isn't completely black like that. Here's my Hyperion...
And, I gotta disagree with G, I don't believe the holes go through the blade completely... *watches the opening battle CG carefully to check*
Yeah. Definately do not go the whole way through.
And on the color... It seems that the FMV graphics have the Hyperion as completely black, but the in-game graphics have it with the silver accents... so... either way is right o.o;
And as for the necklace; yes, I used sculpey, and put a neclace chain through it (as in, it's embedded within the sculpey)
