    Hey guys, I just got a shipment from robotkingdom the other day. In it was:

    1) Prime Bee/Scream Entertainment Pack
    2) TFC Rage of the Hercules Set
    3) BTS-05 Minions- Nightfang and Savage
    4) KO Shadow Commander Add-On Pack
    5) This random sword

    The sword was floating by itself in the box amongst the packaging, wrapped only in this clear plastic bag- frankly, I am lucky I even noticed it amongst the styrofoam pieces! My question is, what is it? Did it come with one of the items I ordered? Is robotkingdom including this as a bonus with orders? Was it a lucky accident in my favor? Does anyone know why I may have received it, and what it is for? It is a nice, chromey sword! Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    Looks similar to one of Drift's swords. But it isn't the same thing as the one I have.

    Definitely the sword from Battle Tanker meant for Drift. It was a bonus for those who bought the first run of Battle Tanker.

    That's a KO of the sword that came with Battle Tanker. The original wasn't chromed.

    You guys seem to have hit the nail on the head- those Maketoys Battle Tanker Drift swords (or the KO versions). Maybe robotkingdom had extras and just started packing them in with shipments randomly as a bonus... or someone made a mistake. Either way, works for me! Thanks a lot for the help, all!!

    EDIT: oh, the Battle Tanker sword was not chromed? Really? I guess this is the "KO" version for sure then! Seems like good quality! Does anyone have a photo of the original (non-chromed) version?

    I have to assume it was a mistake in my favor. Or maybe robotkingdom had so many of these that they started adding them as a bonus.
