    Yesterday I received my long awaited PerfectEffect TAW-01 sword. I bought it to display on my Omega Prime because the original sword is too huge to get a decent display-pose. I could use another handle-part to let it reach the ground but it doesn't bother me much.

    About the sword itself. It's of good quality. Not exellent but good enough.
    The blue bladepiece is a bit loose but that doesn't bother for display. It comes in a nice box with insert and it's amusing to see how they solved the copyright issue in the instruction sheet.
    Does it also look good on my Henkei Prime and City Commander?
    No! At least, not in it's full assembly. It's just too large as the original sword is for Omega Prime. But in the separated parts option (shields, jetpack, small sword.) it looks pretty cool.
    Should you buy it too? Yes! I bought mine in pre-order but even the current going-price is still worth the money.
    I'm even thinking about buying the red version too.

    The blade goes well with Omega Prime

    Looks great. I just recently decided to hunt down Omega Prime, and now I may have to get that sword, too. :lol

    Hmmm looks nice on him... Does anyone have the original sword (or the old transrepro repros) to compare sizes?

    This is the exact reason why I'd love to get one of those swords. Ultimately, though, I just can't bring myself to justify $70 for an accessory.

    Something closer to the original for comparison. Mine's also a third party replica.
