Captured prey is selling them for $17 with free shipping.
the silver blade looks great with Fansproject Steelcore
Nice, That does look great. i plan to give Steelcore the blue one.
Were these designed mostly with BH Optimus in mind, or am I using them wrong? After owning them for a few days, I've seen that the guard on the handle prevents anyone other than that figure from holding it properly with the correct edge facing out. FE Optimus' fist design forces the sword to held with the other edge outward, and even then the blade faces slightly awkwardly if he intended to cut anything with it.
I'm still happy to own them, they have a great sculpt. I just wish they fit the FE figure a little better.
I really love the look of this thing, looks almost like an official Hasbro product. Are there any pictures of this sword with weaponizer Optimus?
The clip included with the blue sword ... is this used on FE Optimus somehow to peg to the sword to his back? There's no hole there, and the only online picture I've found that uses the clip is for Classics Prime. Help?
I found there's a peg hole closer down near the waist on the back of FE Prime and you can fit the clip on to that hole to hold the sword.
The one on his butt or the one above that.I cant get it to peg in?
Also I think the guard of the hilt should of been on the other side or a bit shorter.OP holds it in an awkward way.
could someone post a pic of a skybreaker sword with Takara FE optimus prime Please
I suppose he could punch cons in the face with the saber since he can't slash with it
Love this sword. It does fit in FE prime's hand, just force it a bit.
Finally got mine thanks to CP. Now to crack open my minty fresh FE prime from a year ago. In the meanwhile, I gave the sword to someone else to keep safe
FE Prime with Sky Breaker (Normal)
That is all.
clip also works for BH prime
So the clip doesnt really work for FE Prime,cuz the only it looks like it might fit into in the one on his lower back right above his butt,lol.
Hoping folks will notice me popping in after 5 years! I FINALLY got my FE Optimus Prime, and ordered this baby before Optimus even arrived in the MAIL! Was pretty disappointed to find out that he can't hold it right, so I figured I'd ask: has anyone put out replacement hands, a new hilt, or SOMETHING to make this work with FE Prime a bit better? Haven't found anything on shapeways yet, still looking.
Hell of a thread to zombie, huh?
You're not trying to use the bigger edge as the cutting edge, are you? The sword's design intentionally has the shorter, thinner side as the front.
If you mean he can't hold the sword straight, try putting the handle in at an angle leaning forward. I remember reading something about that working better, but I don't remember if it was for the FE or the PRID figure. I can't check myself, I use the PRID figure, but modded to have PRID Wheeljack's hands.
If neither works, you might have to sand/cut the handguard, or just deal with it. Hope this helped.
EDIT: Also, there is another Star Saber on Shapeways that I think he holds better, if that helps.
I dremeled the hilt down a little. But I gave it to Legends God Ginrai, not FE Prime.
The dremel DOES seem to be the answer to most fitting problems, doesn't it. ^^; I just got a new one, so I might try this. Thanks! Now I just need to find the mount for his back.....
