• Square Enix are Releasing a Life Sized Dragon Quest Sword

    A beautiful life-sized replica of the iconic 'Edrick's Sword' which featured in the first three Dragon Quest JRPGs has been produced by Square Enix, and they're up for grabs for a price of just $238. I know, bargain.

    Unlike our popular Man At Arms with his spectacular complete replicas made from metals and to be exact to the detail of the games, and to be a true 'replica', this sword is made from fibreglass and polyurethane. So don't get your hopes up of actually being able to be Edrick here.

    Still, this sword will probably be a cosplayer's wet dream. I do wonder if Square Enix might make more collectable items like this in the future. I'd personally love to see some of the more unusual weapons of Final Fantasy brought to life. Perhaps one of Red XIII's head pieces, or Rinoa's.... whatever that thing was.

      "fibreglass and polyurethane"

      First guy to try and hit something with it may be in for a nasty, $238 surprise.

      Yeah, cold steel or gtfo. Cool design though.

      I'm with Del Murder. It looks gorgeous, but it'd be nice if it actually felt like a sword as well. Good for hanging above the mantelpiece and whatnot, though.

      An actual metal sword of that design and a decent quality would probably set you back even more than that. It's also unlikely to be allowed at conventions, but w/e. Too pricey for my liking but I can appreciate the business sense -- wow never thought I would say that about Square Enix again.

      Meh, hard to get excited about anything that isn't steel. I wouldn't even consider buying any sword I couldn't cut with.

      But $230 is in no way expensive, for a decent and functional repro you are looking many times that amount.

      Silver medal to the Rubiss Sword. I'll gladly wield it until I obtain lots of monster medals.
