    in a (limited) mass production kinda way?

    I should be getting a leader OPs for xmas and seeing as the chances of getting the premium version are slim, i was wondering if anyone was gonna try to manufacture some leader swords

    maybe once the newer version comes out some clever chappy could make a lil fortune selling moulds of the new sword

    There was a guy selling them for $14 a piece on ebay. Not sure if he still has some but might want to check there.

    Could just wait for the upcoming "Premium" edition. Or maybe it's "Prestige," I can't recall.

    Anyways, Hasbro's making 'em.

    Yeah, I got a few off ebay for $14/each, they are quite accurate, and a hella lot easier to make.

    If i mention ebay too much this thread will get moved to (that website) forum

    just search on that forum.

    I might make a mold and sell them as well, for ....13.99 ;)

    I'd buy two. One for leader Prime and one to paint red for my custom Leader NP :)

    yeah, but that guys is on an auction, they typically close at about $40.

    search in Ebay forums, I linked the salesperson who has the "buy now" option.

    That's what you have the Junkion for, guy.

    I've sent more than a few US exclusives overseas for cost plus shipping--I'm sure a board member would help you out.

    $5.00 methods

    Or you could just do what I did go to Family Dollar or some Walgreen's and pick up a Doomlock from the TF Universe line and use his sword like I did.

    It can be easily held in place by using rare earth magnets. Mine isn't finished yet but you can add any thing you want to as far a hilt or accessories wise.

    No need for Butchering

    You don't need to alter anything this is held on by magnets. You can get rare earth magnets at radio shack or from various toys like Magnetics and such.

    yeah, but the one on ebay is quite accurate, and it clips onto his hand. It's awesome, just got mine last week.
