    Can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually don't like it. It's too flashy.

    I don't like it but I don't really dislike it either. Too many colors IMO. I'd have preferred it just be gold-ish like the Geewun swords.

    Colour me surprised! I previously hoped that Takara would release Predaking with a sword accessory and was disappointed that he came without. Now this shows up and leaves me scratching my head if the sword is sold separately or comes in a new box set for Predaking (sort of like Legends God Ginrai including the Headmaster Juniors). I still haven't gotten around to buying Predaking, so I'll happily pre-order an updated box set if it becomes available.

    Seeing as all the writing is in Chinese, it's probably Chinese Yuan, not Japanese Yen. This puts the price closer to $120~$180, making me think it's for both the figure and the sword.

    Anyone that can read Chinese care to chime in?

    From what I understand, the figure with the sword will be available on Singles' Day (November 11th). Singles' Day is like Black Friday in China, where a lot of deals and discounts can be had.

    You can preorder him from the site currently. The sword only comes with the figure, you can't get the sword separately.

    The DNA sword splits apart and this looks like a solid piece.

    That promotional pic says it's a functional pen.

    I have a feeling that the sword will eventually be sold by itself, or someone will make a KO. You can still find that Hasbro Asia Master Sword (or at least a decent copy) for like $20 on eBay.

    Yeeeeeah, no. The DNA sword splits into smaller weapons and you get better wings and fists...so I'm gonna go with that.
