    Very reasonable price for the sword.

    It is nice, but the handle is too short, so I couldn't give it to a voyager sized guy....

    I guess I don't know what the point of these KFC weapons are. Sorry.

    Hey KFC toys, if you're reading comments here, please make the handles of your weapons longer. Thanks.

    I'm trying to figure out. Tempest is their Cyclonus. So what is the Tempest Saber? Did Cyclonus ever use a sword?

    EDIT: Yep, it's the sword Cyclonus used in the IDW comics! MTMTE #19!

    really? 1 sword? not even a dual pack, for comics sake?
    I guess you gotta make up that Stack money from that first run somehow.

    I'm not sure either. Maybe KFC thinks he can make more money by making you buy their not-Cyclonus and also this sword and the other two gun set separately instead of making it a packaged deal by including them all in with the figure?

    Eh well, either way, it's an easy pass for me.

    I'd think Tempest comes with his guns and sword. These may be additional swords.

    Plus these swords look a lot bigger than those other Drift swords.

    to each his own...i'll probably buy two swords and ship with my current pol at bbts...won't be buying Tempest...so it's cool that i can pick these up without grabing the figure...plus i'd rather not wait almost a month for those other swords...

    I like how thick the blade is compared to the MT one, but c'mon, extend the hilt. It just looks silly the way it is now, and it limits the figures that can hold this, specially the ones with huge forearms and such.
