    Fortress maximus Master Sword
    ORIGINAL = $300ish area complete
    REPRODUCTION $150-200ish depending on some people

    GFC MASTER SWORD/MATRIX BLADE
    ORIGINAL - roughly $300
    REPRODUCTION - again 150ish area

    if you can fid them cheap then GO FOR IT but make sure there decent quality. Ive gotten my hands on afew in the years and some reproductions of the swords are very weak on the handles or in the upper section were the colored blade slides into the dark section of the sword

    The only way the blue one was done with the hilt was as a contest prize, so I have to say fake.

    What did the Japanese Super Fire Convoy come with? I thought it has a master sword in blue with the long handle. but did it come with a Fortmax handle too?

    Nope, so when you get yours in the mail, just sent it to me. You still have my address.

    Alt Mirage demands it.

    Is there any way to tell the real swords from the fakes ones? I got one off of eBay a few years ago I just want to see if its real or not.

    its a fake sword you have. the GFC sword ONLY comes with a long GREY handle for OMEGA PRIME to hold. the MS comes with only the handle for Fort/Grand to hold.

    The Copies are the exact same size as the originals. i own BOTH originals and copies as i got some reproduced for me by Ken before he had his stroke. The quality is pretty much identical. The only real difference is some reproducers use LIGHTER colored resign so the handles dont always match the same color as the hilts/blades

    If you get a good quality repro sword then its pretty much on par with the originals. Also as i said in previous posts -Your Lucky If You Find Cheaper-
    on about about GOOD quality ones as i hae purhased these before Transformers anniversary Mp-1 PLUS-01 GOD SWORD 3 Vers - eBay (item 230241203441 end time Sep-07-08 02:16:27 PDT)
    and the quality is very low!the GFC sword handle breaks so easily! you need glue if you plan to buy this repro sword as pieces break easily

    hes lying then because most of those swords came from JDProductions and IM the one who actually supplied him with an original Master Sword handle in exchange for afew copies of the swords as i needed them for friends. Afew months afterwards and he started whoring these on ebay like crazy before he closed his website down.

    These swords were made by him and on average are about 89% close to the original but were the blade (blue/red/grey) meets the black section of the sword it can break rather easily so be careful

    Yeah I'm gonna pass on the repros on eBay. Ain't gonna pay $70 for swords that will break easily.
