A Different Take on Fishbones from League of Legends

Fishbones prop 1

Harrison Krix of Volpin Props has made the sharky weapon Fishbones from the game League of Legends once before, but he recently crafted a different version. Fishbones V2 is based on artwork of Jinx’s in “Get Jinxed.” Krix was hired by Riot Games for the project. It doesn’t have quite as many bold colors as the initial build, and the shape is a little different. The prop is made of 18 individual parts and weathered components. Krix says:

While this is the second Fishbones I’ve completed, many of the parts still needed to be hand-shaped (such as the armor plates, handles and back fin) making this replica as much of a one-off as my original project. For this V2 revisit, the opening jaw mechanism was redesigned to be more robust and easier articulate with the trigger hand. Painting techniques were also changed, switching from enamels to urethane paints for a more durable finish. The overall build architecture remained very similar from V1 to V2, employing epoxy resins and lots of PVC sheeting.

These photos show off some of the detailing:
