    When the new products announcement was made back in August, I'm sure I was not the only one surprised to see Herugrim, King Theoden's sword, in the lineup for fall/winter release.

    At first, it struck me as odd. Herugrim? That certainly wouldn't have been my first choice for a release. I hadn't even considered that it would come out- much less given any thought to buying it if it did.

    But..... a funny thing's happened. The durned thing's grown on me.

    Looking at the pictures of it now, it really is a very beautiful sword. In fact, considering Guthwine and Eowyn's sword, all of the Rohirrim swords are beautiful, especially because they're so unique. They're different, in style and shape, from anything we've seen so far in the LOTR collection. From their 'short', viking-esque blades, to their beautiful use of the horse-head, to their liberal allotment of golds and rich, brown hues..... they're special.

    Now, Herugrim is one of my major purchase considerations. I would consider myself privileged indeed to own such a magnificent sword.

    Does anyone else have any plans to own Herugrim, or one of the other Rohan blades? And have you had a similar change of heart regarding them?

    I do plan on buying this sword, along with all other swords, but it is not my top priority. I'll eventually buy it, but it may be a year before I can afford it on top of all the others I've just preordered and bought. BUt definately yes!

    Same here, maybe some day. I want to concentrate on the fellowship weapons like Sting, Anduril, the white knives, etc. I've got the Ranger, the Shards, and the Witchking, and Glamdring will be here in a couple of weeks.

    Brother Elladan, we think much alike. Not only has Herugrim grown on me considerably, but I also find myself eagerly awaiting announcements of Guthwine and Eowyn's sword's, to round out a Rohan display. I definitely was not originally impressed with them, but after seeing TTT a few times, my collection will not be complete without them.

    Guthwine, Guthwine for the Mark!

    A nice looking sword, sure. But I wouldn't get it simply because, well, I don't like horses.

    Yes, I'm getting Herugrim, but Guthwine is TOP PRIORITY. I've wanted this blade since I first saw it on Dec. 18, 2002. I was probably the only person in the theater who saw it fall out of its scabbard, b/c I was focusing on the blade, and not whatever else was going on.

    I think all the Rohan swords are simply beautiful. THey're something very different and unique to the films and when I saw TTT in theaters I was this close to drooling! I think they'll really round out the current collection available.

    At least one! Actually, Thinking of Herugrim for me, Guthwine or my wife and Eowyn's sword for my daughter.
    simply the best swords of the movie (so far!).

    My first choice is Guthwine. I love the horse that wraps around as the hilt. And the maroon leather of the pommel and scabbard are really nice. My second choice is Eowyn's sword. Its smaller, but I might consider getting it later on. However, Herugrim doesn't appeal to me at all. I just don't like the large gold pommel that looks like a heart. But, that's just me.

    I won't, I like Aragorns Collection, and I think the horse on it is too large

    Not without the Scabbard. But if they make Herugrim with the Scabbard I'm all over it.

    I wonder what kind of plaque will come with these....
    I mean, standard hanging plaque won't work too well, will it?
    Maybe one like the Uruk-Hai Scimitar?

    The pommels (esp. Eowyn's) should be big enough to use to hang them vertically.

    I hope so, I'd hate to see them displayed differently. I'm sure we'll find out soon enough though.

    Ya'know, I wasn't at all hot about the 'idea' of the Rohan swords, but I have to admit the more I see them the more they've grown on me. So much in fact that I've decided to save up for Herugrim and Guthwine! :banana:

    (Just to tide me over till Boromir's sword, of course! :D )

    I also will only get this sword if the scabbard is released with it. The scabbard looks so incredible on this sword and I would definately try to save up the money for it if they released it as well.

    I will, however, be getting Eowyn's when it is released with or without a scabbard.

    Then i wouldn't hold your breath. Getting a scabbard with a large sword would be next to impossible.

    I'm with berennluthien, I'm waiting for Eowyn's sword, after all it's the one that slays the Witchking, that's a definite "buy" for me and I would also like to see Eomer's sword Guthwine. I would most likely get that also.
