That looks nothing like the real energy sword...

Is there such a thing as a "real" energy sword?

Looks good to keep it in the realms of actually being wield-able with one hand.

Shy of inventing Energy projection it's impossible to get an exact replica.

godofboobees1768d ago

Because the technology of the halo universe exist to forge such a weapon right?

Guys... I'm not talking about the material/colour. Are you guys blind? Look at the damn shape of it, it looks completely different to the shape of the actual energy sword from the games. This seems more like a cheap knockoff rather than a replica.

WTF IS THIS! Really, this is garbage, its a lop-sided POS. HAHA wield it with one hand....yeah

Is it perfect? No. Is it still pretty bad ass? Yes.

I didn't like how the blades moved around when he was using it, seems that would throw the balance off badly. He should have used thicker steal, made the base wider and had the blades tapered to a sharper point at the end.

Still a cool project though.

It Would be BAD ASS if it was well made. The close up shot showed just how much the blades were off! Yes I was laughing when they sliced with blade wobbling.

I wonder how much Coca Cola paid them to slice up a Mountain Dew bottle... (Pepsi Co.)
