    Not sure if this is the right place, mods can move to appropriate place if need be.

    Anyways, I know most people are not fans of Crazydevy products for various reasons let alone when they first announced this sword (those ppl can stop reading now)

    But for those of us who are closet fans but weren't willing to fork out the original $70 asking price, they're currently on clearance at BBTS for $42. I just wanted to give people a heads up for anybody who cared for one (I do not work for BBTS). I always wanted a sword for my US Fort Max but eBay prices for original Japanese version always exceeded $70. I felt that CDMW-12 was the next best option.

    Cheers.

    It would have been / would be nice if a version with a sturdy long handle (even a downscaled one) could be made for use with Omega Prime or Primus.

    The TAW swords are more multipurpose and looks great with Omega Prime. (cheaper, too at some point)

    For Primus, you can buy a blue infinity warfare pack from TFC, and it serves just as good a sword cept its more multi-purpose as well.

    Thanks! and bought! Even though i dont have a Fort Max yet :lol  although it might work for my Brave at some point i guess...


    I got the Blue TAW for that purpouse (although i got the last batch from BBTS so no discount...) And what i like other than the multiple configurations, is the better detail for Omega Prime than the real deal. Still i would love to see some pics with Omega holding it (My figures are in storage and completely unaccesible for the time being :( )

    I'd buy one for half that. $42 is still too much.

    Is this sword a POS?

    Not at all... In fact, the quality of this product is really good.

    The major difference between CrazyDevy's Master Sword compared to the vintage or a KO of the vintage is that the hilt is shaped closely to resemble the Master Sword from the Japanese G1 Headmasters Cartoon.

    For $42, I can highly recommend it since other KO Master Swords usually will cost you $50 to $65 and a vintage Master Sword (if you can find one) will cost you well above $100 easy.

    Here's some pics...

    No worries. :thumb 

    One thing to note, the handle I used for the the CrazyDevy Master Sword in the pics was taken from a KO Master Sword. The handle you get with the CrazyDevy Master Sword is just a little peg that fits nicely into the hand. Although it's a little peg rather than a handle, it holds the sword in place very well and actually looks better in my opinion because there's more emphasis towards the sword.

    Given the colors, it already fits with Brave Max, no?

    ugh.....so poor right now, but I've always wanted a sword for my FM and/or BM. Luckily today is a payday......I should be able to talk myself into it after a few pops tonight.

    I prefer if they make the blue version. they already have the mold. A change in color and stickers and there you have it. Not as simple as I said but it's definitely doable.

    There are several master sword reproductions, one on eBay, the ones that's on preorder in bbts (I still can't tell the difference between that and the eBay repro ones, quality?) and this version of the master sword
