jonylin (2 maand(en) geleden) #55423109Wow I wasn't expecting to get such a detailed answer 10 months later! Thanks for this!
Hope you liked it! :) I don't mind necroposting if it's something I'm enthusiastic about - and Trigun was one of my first anime/manga loves and will most likely always be among my favourite anime/manga series. Plus I've long been fascinated by the Black Vash-themed merch as well, and some years ago I did a bit of research. :P

Silvery (2 maand(en) geleden) #55396335Another huge fan here - and I'm afraid that it's a bit more complicated. See, the first time we see the version that I will call "Black Vash" (black hair, black coat) in the manga is near the end of the 13th volume. By this point he's got mostly black hair, but no black coat. That's around 2006-2007.
The early merchandise versions of Black Vash (platinum blonde hair, red eyes, pale skin, black coat) predate the manga by 5-6 years; here's an example: ITEM #5469. So yeah, initially it was just an interesting recolor. This version of Vash tends to look more menacing, so maybe it was meant to make people think of Knives? And it's not like people don't like to imagine evil versions of good characters, which usually goes in hand with a palette swap.
Later the two versions kinda merged - most newer depictions of Black Vash retain the platinum blonde hair, red eyes and paler skin of the early merch version, but he's usually depicted in a way that suggests using his powers, just like in the manga.
Funnily enough, as far as I know, to this day we've never gotten a pure manga version of Black Vash (black hair, black coat). Hell, even the versions with half-blonde/half-black hair from the middle volumes of the manga are rare.
But yeah, I'd say that this version, while inspired by both variants, is the closest to the manga appearance, complete with glowing lines on his sleeve. If only he had black hair and his usual turquoise eyes...
On a side note, I wonder what Knightow thinks of this. Would be funny if the manga version of Black Vash was a nod to the early recolors. I guess it's not impossible; I mean, if Kishiro could jokingly reference the English version of Gally's name in the 8th volume of Gunnm/Battle Angel Alita...

Cutsceneaddict (8 maand(en) geleden) #39908827*raises hand* Big fan here!
The Gunman in Black form is based on Vash's appearance in the Trigun MAXIMUM manga when he fights Legato for the final time. He gets the dark-colored body and hair with the blue electric lines running through his clothes. Hard to tell since it's in black and white, but you can see it easiest on the cover of volume #13 ITEM #473072

Oh wow, thanks so much for clearing that up for me!

jonylin (1 jaar geleden) #34681633Just curious, but does anyone who's very familiar with Trigun source material know if this appearance of him is canon at all? It seems like multiple figures of this version of him exist, but I can't find anything about him actually taking this form.jonylin (11 maand(en) geleden) #35009407Hmm so I guess at some point one of the figure makers decided to make this version of him and it just became a thing? He looks really cool but I think I'd rather have the regular version since that's the one I'm familiar with from the anime and movie. Thanks for your input though!

enjoime_CB (1 jaar geleden) #34977395I'd say i'm a big fan of the series and actually you got me curious as well and haven't found anything as well! :( Seems they just made this a different version and that's all. Could e-mail koto about what they based this figure on? Best shot i'm seeing.
