    'Gil-galad wields a well-made spear, The Orc will fear my point of ice; When he sees me, in fear of death
    he will know my name: Aiglos'

    What about it folks I knw United has not said much about making spears. And if my memory serves me right Kit did mention the interest in them making them. Those of you interested in the Spear of Gil-Galad's let the folks at UC know.

    UC should definately make all the spears, but full scale. I don't want and won't buy some puny scaled down miniature, it just wouldn't look right! Maybe UC should just make the blades of the spears and just tell us all how big of a pole to stick on there, etc...at least they'd be full size! But with me, it's full size or there's no point

    UC PLEASE MAKE THE SPEARS!

    I think this spear is awe inspiring but I also agree with Stricker, if the blade isn't full size then there is no point in making it.

    They should include the pole, becuase it would be cheap to have it included and better if they engraved elvish into it

    PLEASE MAKE AEGLOS FULLSIZED!!!!! Please, please, please make the spear of Gil-galad. This is my number one choice!!!

    Its amazing. Like the grandaddy of all Elvish weapons. This is an absolute must have for my collection! I would buy this reguardless of price!!! Please, make this full scale!!!

    I'm willing to wait until UC is prepared to make this weapon. And I'd love to see it as a limited edition. It would be the crowning point of my collection!

    Powerful, magical, fierce. I am sooo in love with this spear! As a matter of fact I'd really like to see *all* the Noldorian Elven weapons to be made from Aeglos, to Merry and Pippen's Elvish Daggers, to Elrond's Dagger, to the Elven Warrior Longbow and Haldir's sword. It would be the most perfect set!

    Even Richard Taylor has said that Aeglos is the most beautiful weapon that they made for the entire trilogy. It would be a crime not to make it.

    The pole could be made two piece. Museum replica makes many two piece swords. That would be the only practical way to make them shipable.

    If they can do it that way I'm 100% for it!!! If it's full sized I will buy it, and it really shouldn't cost THAT much. I mean the blade shouldn't be more than 200-250 right? and how much is a pole? Anyways UC you need to make this and all the spears!!!

    (I didn't know elrond has a dagger...was it shown at all in the films?)

    I got thinking and I thought it would be really cool if they came out with all the spears at the same time (or at least all the non-orc/easterling ones). It would be awesome to see these offered at the same time, and even with the possibility of buying them as a set. We're talking aiglos, regular elven spear, rohan spear, theoden's spear...what else am i missing??? Anyways just an idea...

    For the shipping prob they would have, they could take off the blade from the pole, but it would still be 7 feet long, are you sure they cannot ship something 6-7 feet long?

    I may be wrong but the Witchking sword is pushing the limit for length. So I know 6 to 7 would be out.

    I absolutely agree. Not making this spear would be an empty spot in every LOTR sword fans and collectors.

    For the shipping prob.. Well as you guys said, you take off the blade from the pole! Full size = I buy it.
    But the first prob, is to show UC that we want Aeglos to be made!!!

    And Voro, what about this Elrond dagger? Never saw it, can you post a picture or something? would be interesting to see it.

    UC, make Aeglos!!

    If the spear is between 8 and 9 feet, and it could detatch or unscrew right in the middle, it could easily be shipped.

    I've really had no desire for this spear. It's cool and all, but I'd rather have a sword.

    Where do you find that picture of Elronds Weapons?! I've looking everywhere for one but haven't been able to find pictures and only unofficial references to it.

    I'dl love to hear what you know about it, and if you have any more pics of it. Is it on the DVD image galleries anywhere, I couldn't find it....

    I scanned in that picture from the LOTR: Fan Club Magazine, no. 8, April/May 2003 p. 56. Sadly, that is the only picture that I have of it.

    All that I know about that weapon is that Arwen has it attached to her horse in FOTR. Apparently, it is there during the Nazgul chase seen. You can see the full set in one brief moment while she is riding in the trees.

    It looks to me like Hadhafang's little sister. But, I do not see it on Elrond during the Last Alliance. And the scabbard is slightly different from Hadhafang's. So, perhaps it was commissioned specifically for Arwen (from her Father?)

    It does not have any script or vine design on the blade. But, from what I can tell it does have a fuller. It looks to be about half the size of Hadhafang. So, technically it may be more like a short sword then a dagger. But, at this time its all speculation. Because, I have not heard any offical word from UC, WETA or Newline about it.
