    Weapon I, I like the color better, but it seems a little small, although it is similar to the original one.

    Weapon II, large enough, but maybe too large? Which one you guys think is better?

    The first one looks more accurate to the comic you presented...but I like the second one better. I like the Scimitar sword v/s dagger look, but that is just personal taste.

    What is that stuff by the way, hot glue and dye???

    I personally don't think either fits the custom's style or feel. The blade has a "rugged" organic look, while the figure is very streamlined and cartoonish. I would rather see a glowing (with paints) blade or something not as "complex" Though if I had to choose between the 2, I'd say the first one.

    Thank you for the suggestions.
    Actually I tried to get some fire effect, but it seems clear orange/red combination doesn't work very well. I agree it seems to hard and real to be the fire, maybe the "rugged" organic look. I may need to order some clear yellow online, since I cannot find in local store:( 
    About the glowing blade, what do you mean, just florescent painting or add a LED?
