    Interesting listing showed up on BBTS. Did the usual search and found nothing on this.

    Highlord's Justice Sword - Red Version $94.99

    Hard to say who is producing it at this point. The description shows the following:

    I am curious if this is just a misfire listing for what is supposed to be the CrazyDevy sword. The listing for the CD sword already has color pics though... so.... eh? I've never seen one of the original Master Swords before so I can't say if this is a reproduction or is at least original engineering on a similar design. Obviously, it is intended to fill in as a Master Sword though.

    It's a KO of the original, there's been a "Sword of Masterpiece" floating about on Ebay for just slightly less for years. Decent quality that one, but the long handle eventually breaks under the weight - that's why the Car Robots one was so bendy, the softer plastic was needed to offset the weight. Hard plastic will eventually shatter - not sure about the metal ones I once saw reference to, I'd assume those were okay.

    If it's posed 100% vertically I can't see why it would break - only if all the weight from the tip was hanging at an angle would it have cause to bend stress or break the handle- I guess the solution if for someone to make a metal handle really so it's not an issue.

    Does that sword store or fit on any of Fortress Maximus' bas mode/City mode or is it just for the robot - as if there's no obvious spot for it in city mode that might be something to address too.

    There's no spot for it in city mode, because it was never designed for that originally. Generation 1 toys didn't have 100% accessory storage.

    Also, the one I had was 100% vertical - the clip still broke. It's the clip that is the weak point, not the handle. Needs to be stored horizontally when not on display, or it will break.

    Third Party Unlicensed Master Sword Preorder on BBTS

    Sorry if this has been posted already, but I did a quick check of this forum and didn't see anything. I noticed there are some third party/unlicensed Master Sword replicas up for preorder on BBTS. No company is listed (it's under "Import Toys") but they apparently work for G1 Fort/Grand/Brave Maximus as well as RiD Omega Prime. Three colors are available.

    Oh okay, sorry I didn't see that. I guess this thread can just be merged into that one then.

    The BBTS listing and news of this was posted back in early July: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...ghlords-justice-sword-master-sword-repro.html

    They've since knocked the price down $20.

    The color pics and additional listings for the other color variations are new info. The packaging pics are certainly new. The box seems like it's just a tad bit thicker than it needs to be. I wish they wouldn't do that with stuff that can clearly be smaller.

    For curiosity, I just would to know if these 'new' replicas are so different from the previous unofficial replicas that still are around on ebay...

    Does anyone know what the quality of the Crazydevy version of this is that's on clearance on BBTS right now? Because I've been eyeing that but I can't really find anywhere that has a good review of it.
