Ok guys, this is my first review so if I screw anything up, let me know. Here we have the very curious ROTF Optimus Prime Role-Play sword. At the price of $7.99 it's a neat item, but with the cost so low, expect it to have some drawbacks. Here's a quick overview of it's specifics: Packaging: Attached via twisty tie onto standard ROTF cardback Material: Molded Plastic/Cloth Straps Length: 22 inches Width: 5 inches maximum - 1 inch minimum http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/attachment.php?attachmentid=27100865&stc=1&d=1247854393 And the sword off card: It has some really nice molding and detail. They could have just made it in solid colors but there is some nice "paint wear" present. A let down for me is the symbols. For some reason I thought they were etched in, but no, they're just stickers. And the backside: The plastic has some weight to it, but it gets thin near the edges. I'm sure that some ambitious enough people could fill the hollowness with resin or something, giving it a little more durability. The back has two elastic straps that secure the arm pretty tight to the sword. The only issue would be if you have large arms or big hands. There's not to much room to hide them behind there. Me, I have twig arms so it's no problem. The length of the sword isn't bad. I'm 6" 4' and it looks ok on me I guess. Well, as good as a plastic role-play sword intended for children 4+ can... Over all, it's a pretty cool item for $8.00. I wouldn't recommend it for slicing off faces or taking down giant evil robots, but hanging it or displaying it would be just fine.
