    It's a nice enough sword but I think I'm quite happy with the options for the displayed toys already. I'd guess it would suit something other than the suggested items though.

    However I suppose they might suit things like Prime Ultra Magnus, Prime Optimus or even Animated prime.

    Anyone got any suggestions - I was thinking Prime Kup or the Not-Aerialbots perhaps ? and I always suggest this but Botcon Banzai-Tron too perhaps might suit those swords.

    I really want to like these swords... but the one piece comes up far to much on the black, essentially making this thing only for stabbing. Sort of like having a nerf-guard on a broad sword. :(

    So as I understand it now, there are seven different color versions of this mold.

    Original run:
    1. DW-TF05 Prime Sword (silver blade and hilt, blue crystal)
    2. DW-TF05 Prime Sword (silver blade, black hilt, purple crystal)

    Second run:
    3. DW-TF05 Prime Sword (gold blade and hilt red crystal)
    4. DW-TF05 Prime Sword (black and hilt, yellow crystal)

    Third run:
    5. DW-TF05D Dark Energon Sword (purple blade, black hilt, purple crystal)
    6. DW-TF05U Ultimate Sword (silver blade, blue hilt, clear crystal)
    7. DW-TF05X Broken Blade (purple blade, gold hilt, yellow crystal) Captured Prey Exclusive

    Any others?

    I got the black and purple one from Ace, it looks perfect with Hegemon. Even better with this Gothitropolis figure I have.

    Why are so many new releases from 3P are geared toward toys that are Con-exclusives? I took a look at the Shattered Glass OP on Ebay and it's going for $300+. What good are these swords if I can't get the toys they are meant for? Sheesh.

    Well, you mostly see it with exclusives, like my Broken Blade. And that makes sense, in a way. The normal versions the company releases all over to get maximum sales exposure are going to be the ones that will normally go with mass release toys, in order to reach the most customers. However, there is a fairly good-sized niche market for various other versions, such as the Broken Blade, that match toys which are out there in fairly large numbers, but not common on the market.

    Which is not to say that the Broken Blade wouldn't look good with any number of other mass-release evil characters. Indeed, it might look excellent with something like Darkness Megatron or several black version of Prime. But the conception was rooted in filling that particular niche market, and by a fortuitous event, it appears it will work very well with a certain upcoming third party armor kit for that same character...

    You could invest in one of the knockoffs of SG Optimus Prime. I got mine for about $30.

    Well, Yes if I can ascribe all the properties of the gun. It only needs to do one thing: fire your swords as rounds from [the reach of your sword +1].

    Point is, it's not for me. Have at it, I'm glad you have choices. My wallet is glad be able to breathe the rest of the year.

    Can you point me the way to that knock off for SG OP? I am also looking for a knock off in Wildrider color (Classics Rodimus in Purple and Black)
