    My guess is that they will have all the swords represented as minis. They just released the Narsil mini last month. I am sure that they will make Hadafang, one of the most popular swords of the series as a mini.

    But to answer your question, no, not since I discovered Gran Turismo 3 on the Playstation2 - all of a sudden whole days have passed in what seems like minutes! Need to lay off it a bit methinks.

    Stupid question, but are you throwing in a real sharpening stone with it?

    Have you guys seen the ROTK preview yet? Andruil looks ~exactly~ the same as Narsil. No engravings, nothing different. I am v. disappointed. The only slight variatiion seems to be an "antiqued" finish to the pommel as seen in the teaser pic.s.

    I was only going get Andruil if it was significantly different from Narsil. *sighs* Maybe, I should have just bought the Shards instead.

    In one of the pics it looks like Anduril has engravings on the fuller.

    I watched the ROTK preview yesterday on my HDTV and yes the runes are engraved into the fuller of Aduril. Thank god for step and zoom. I could not make out exactly what was there but beyond a doubt there were carvings in the fuller!

    IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIKNEWIT!

    Thank you Palantir. And remember guys, it can be very hard to see runes on any blade even in a close up picture. Check out Glamdring.

    Well, this is good news.

    Now let's hope we still get the 'device' with the sun and seven stars. I'll be upset if we don't, since it's so specifically described by Tolkien.

    Ew, that's horrible! Not quite as bad as their "Middle-Earth Sword" though. It looks like there could be some extra engravings at the base of the blade where it meets the crossguard, but that's no guarantee about the movie version. Especially b/c I don't see how they could put it there on the real Narsil, b/c of how the fuller ends there. Guess we'll see pretty soon though. :D

    But you have to remember that if the Elven smiths wanted to put something they could change that area of the sword to make it accomidate what they needed. It is going to be reforged and it will have some changes...just what will it be?

    But why would they reforge that part? Since it's part of the "main shard", I don't see why they'd need to change anything as far as the design of the blade there.

    in reality to reforge a blade, you would have to forge weild all the peices together, even add some steel, and then start from a blank again and forge it to shape and regrind it. Very little of the original steel of the first blade would remain because you would have to add ALOT of new steel to allow for stock removal

    That's all very well, but how did they put in the electronic sound effects and battery pack? ;)

    I kinda like a sword with a speaker built into it! You could hook it up to play the soundtrack from the movies as you swing it around!:D It's a lot easier to swashbuckle when you have the right background music!
