    I'm pretty sure I mentioned this here back in January or February, but Boromir's sword will be made. We did not get the prop from New Line until a short while ago so you won't see it on the market anytime soon. It typically takes 10-11 months from the time we get the prop to the time is is actually available for sale. There is no way to do it quicker. I estimate late summer 04.

    Boromir does make an appearance with his sword in the extended cut of TTT so maybe that will hold your interest until the sword is available.

    Thanks for the reply. You put many questions to rest.
    I'll be looking forward to the sword.

    Yep September is the beginning of fall, but still not updated catologe from United. I't shouldn't be much longer. If it were not for Kit being busy with being the judge on our Hadafang contest and ohter e-mails I sent him I would write and ask, but right now I have bothered him enough. Give em a few more days and we will see.

    No word on Boromir's Shield or Horn, huh?
    I HATE sounding so greedy, but hey...I AM spending thousands of $$$ on this stuff!
    And hey, as long as there is DEMAND for the stuff, it SHOULD be made....
    Money for UC....Money for New Line.....
    Beautiful Swords, Staffs, Spears, Pikes, Shields, Costumes, Daggers, Gaunlets, Crowns, and ANYTHING and EVERYTHING else that can be made.....FOR ME!

    WIN-WIN situation if you ask me!

    While I understand the time and costs is takes to prepare these items...You have to admit....with the success of the first few series/asst. of swords....There really and truly IS a Demand for the stuff!

    All hail Kit and UC!
    Keep 'em coming....I'll keep buyin'!!! :banana:

    BTW - What is happening with the Elven (warrior) Sword?

    I though that would be released this Autumn.
    Now it looks like it is a back burner item....
    What happened? :mad:

    the way they were doing it would cost too much so they had to find a new way, and delay it farther

    I am not sure at this time what has been the delay. United has not informed us of that yet. BUt I am positive it has to do with quality control. From what I am hearing the quality was not up to there standards and they will not release it until it is. And Im glad of that.

    Same here, it wouldn't be right if that one sword wasn't up to par with the others I hope that they make as high quality as they can(with out making it really expensive)
