2005 Boards member uranusdd has shared with us pictures of three more sword accessories from Dr Wu. Shown here are three "Prime Sword" recolors - based on the sword design for Prima in the Transformers Vault book. The first is the previously-revealed Broken Blade, an item exclusive to online store Captured Prey, with a purple blade and a gold hilt. Second there is a "Dark Energon" varient, with a purple blade and a black hilt. Lastly there is an Ultimate version, with a silver blade and a blue hilt. All three feature a chromed finish and are sized for standard 5mm hand grips.

Sorry. I've never been able to reconcile swords in an age of guns/bombs.

Swords don't run out of ammo.

Ever play a Final Fantasy game? Swords are always better than guns. XD

Gotta agree. Only the Dinobots should carry swords IMHO.....Menasor at a push but he is that big of a bastard that a sword seems out of place.
Orodruin
Dark Energon version is gorgeous, absolutely getting that one. Maybe some others.

The Sword that Prime held in TFP can shoot energy waves....

Glad I Preordered my Broken blade form Captured prey!! There was only like 300 of them and there all exclusives I think!

Yep, the Broken Blade is looking good. Not quite the planned colors, and the initial photos from the factory recently looks BAD. But these show that the sword in fact looks fine, so it should be shipping to us as soon as they get them packaged.
Kilowog
Can't wait for the Broken Blade to ship from CP

I just it an ordered the broken blade. Don't have shattered glass prime to go with it, but its cool enough to give to whoever.

To be fair, this is a sword that can cut mountains in half and damage battle cruisers with one swipe. The Matrix in the hilt can destroy chaos gods that inhabit planets. Would you rather have a gun?

more importantly, I cannot, in any way, appreciate/like/reconcile/etc weaponry of any size that is almost half the size of the wielder (see 'final fantasy'). Inconceivable really (and yes I know what that word really means!). while I get giant transforming robots themselves fall into that category, I can get past that enough to enjoy them for what they are. This new trend lately of giant weaponry (and see through robots, but thats for another rant) is kinda rediculous.

so, in short, I'll pass. Yes this one isn't as bad as some of those mech tech weapons from DotM, or as big as those video game things, but none the less...

ok--done now (heh)

Only 250. And only I have them.

Package proof below. It's going to be packaged now and then should ship over to me.
Scypris
I'm loving these swords. I Wish one was green, that would be awesome!
Transmetal
Speaking of swords i hope dr wu is still gonna make the TF Prime sword.
Smasher
Good looking accessories.
Rahvin
Will you be carrying the Dark Energon and Ultimate versions as well at Captured Prey? I only see the Broken Blade on your site...but I want the Dark Energon version.
Orodruin
Acetoystore has them up as well- Dr. Wu : Acestoystore, Transformers Collectibles
RedAlert Rescue
It's a nice enough sword but I think I'm quite happy with the options for the displayed toys already. I'd guess it would suit something other than the suggested items though.

However I suppose they might suit things like Prime Ultra Magnus, Prime Optimus or even Animated prime.

Anyone got any suggestions - I was thinking Prime Kup or the Not-Aerialbots perhaps ? and I always suggest this but Botcon Banzai-Tron too perhaps might suit those swords.

who wants to get me the black and purple sword for a wedding present?
Zress Tayasu
oversized crossguard that covers half the blade length is kinda stupid looking tho...
influence82
I preordered the Captured Prey sword. This one I think is Gold and purple. The black and purple one look better for decepticons.
Broken Blade - Captured Prey Exclusive

I really want to like these swords... but the one piece comes up far to much on the black, essentially making this thing only for stabbing. Sort of like having a nerf-guard on a broad sword.

So as I understand it now, there are seven different color versions of this mold.

Original run:
1. DW-TF05 Prime Sword (silver blade and hilt, blue crystal)
2. DW-TF05 Prime Sword (silver blade, black hilt, purple crystal)

Second run:
3. DW-TF05 Prime Sword (gold blade and hilt red crystal)
4. DW-TF05 Prime Sword (black and hilt, yellow crystal)

Third run:
5. DW-TF05D Dark Energon Sword (purple blade, black hilt, purple crystal)
6. DW-TF05U Ultimate Sword (silver blade, blue hilt, clear crystal)
7. DW-TF05X Broken Blade (purple blade, gold hilt, yellow crystal) Captured Prey Exclusive

Any others?
Orodruin
I got the black and purple one from Ace, it looks perfect with Hegemon. Even better with this Gothitropolis figure I have.
Scaleface
I have three so far...

The Broken Blade has just shipped, so they should be arriving soon!

Why are so many new releases from 3P are geared toward toys that are Con-exclusives? I took a look at the Shattered Glass OP on Ebay and it's going for $300+. What good are these swords if I can't get the toys they are meant for? Sheesh.
Sidecutter
Well, you mostly see it with exclusives, like my Broken Blade. And that makes sense, in a way. The normal versions the company releases all over to get maximum sales exposure are going to be the ones that will normally go with mass release toys, in order to reach the most customers. However, there is a fairly good-sized niche market for various other versions, such as the Broken Blade, that match toys which are out there in fairly large numbers, but not common on the market.

Which is not to say that the Broken Blade wouldn't look good with any number of other mass-release evil characters. Indeed, it might look excellent with something like Darkness Megatron or several black version of Prime. But the conception was rooted in filling that particular niche market, and by a fortuitous event, it appears it will work very well with a certain upcoming third party armor kit for that same character...

You could invest in one of the knockoffs of SG Optimus Prime. I got mine for about $30.

Well, Yes if I can ascribe all the properties of the gun. It only needs to do one thing: fire your swords as rounds from [the reach of your sword +1].

Point is, it's not for me. Have at it, I'm glad you have choices. My wallet is glad be able to breathe the rest of the year.

Can you point me the way to that knock off for SG OP? I am also looking for a knock off in Wildrider color (Classics Rodimus in Purple and Black)

Just got my TP-05 D&U...heavy, shiny, and purdy! Looking great with TFP and classics mold.
