    A message to that guy: Thanks for buying 20 (now 18) of them so you could sell. Some of us didnt get one... hog!! (sorry... lol, just trying desperatly to get the sword).

    I dont think id take it back if the paint was falling off on the runes. They would look more like the origonal.

    Don't make your own, just buy the "unlimited" Anduril coming out in a few months. It'll be around $180 (and the equiv. amount in GBP) depending on your retailer.

    It is the same sword but without the special plaque and signed certificate by the movie's production designer (he designed the swords).

    All I care for is the sword really... so it doesnt matter either way.

    I'm not keen on that one, I've heard they've left A few Things out on the unlimited version.

    I dont whether or not this is true yet as I have'nt checked it out yet :confused:

    They didn't leave anything out. Infact they added stuff on the limited from the origonal. If you go read what it says on the BBB site it says whats different. Its the same sword... no real difference except the plaque, which does not affect the sword itself.

    Really not keen on the unlimited version now

    I still dont see why your not to keen on it.
    1) Different but unique plaque
    2) Will not be serialized or numbered
    3) Will come with a certificate of Authenticity from United Cutlery but not
    autographed certificate signed by John Howe
    4) It will have the same runes on hilt but not highlighted in gold
    5) The decorative holes inside the ends of the hilt and end of pommel will have
    24 karat gold plated fittings.
    Different plaque... looks great regardless. It wont be serialized, if htey did it wouldn't be unlimited. Autograph is something special, just adding to the collectors value. The runes on the hilt are still there, but they wont be highlighted. They weren't highlighted in the movie.

    If anything the unlimited is more like the one in the movie, but its the exact same sword.

    I recieved a letter saying my pre-order cannot be fulfil b'cos UC cannot supply the demand. I was given a choice to refund or get the unlimited Anduril at a special low rate. :moon1:

    Shucks Steel, that's gotta disapoint you, was it from BBB or another retailer? Because BBB were very careful to stop taking preorders before their allocation was used up.
    What will you do?

    I like the highlighted runes...much better than non highlighted
    But that just comes down to personal taste I guess

    Too bad about your pre-order Steel :, )

    havent heard anything yet. i think they may be waiting for the final people to receive their pre-orders, make sure nothing is wrong with them (just in case of replacements), then they will resort to the waiting list...hopefully it will be this week.
