    Hi all

    Besides the signed parchment by John Lowe, what else is different? Plague?

    Also, I have seen two advertised SKU #s for the Limited edition.
    UC1380ASLB and UC1380ASNB. Does anyone know which one is the limited edition?

    Happy holidays

    As Aramir has pointed out those are the only differences that Kit Rae, United's Art Director and Product Manager has also confirmed that those are the differences.

    "The regular version of Anduril will have a different plaque shape without the gold gondor crests and the sword will not have the gold filled letters in the pommel. It won't be shipping for quite a while. We are still making the remainder of the limited/John Howe version.

    Speaking of John Howe, if anyone has not picked up his art book "Myth and Magic" it is a must have if you are a John Howe fan.

    Is the Andúril in the movie with or without the gold letters in the pommel?

    If I remember correctly it was without which means the unlimited Andúril will actually be a more accurate replica.

    First of all, thanks so much for the replies.

    anyone know which version of Anduril UC1380ASNB is?
    I saw one website showing that UC1380ASNB is the non-limited edition.
    Any confirmation?

    I bet that the leather quality on the unlimited anduril isnt going to be as high quality as the LE version. I did notice the difference between Narsil and Anduril, although it could just be because its a different sword, even though its the reforged one.

    I think the movie Anduril has gold letters, see poster photo at http://www.lordoftherings.net/film/trilogy/ it looks gold to me!

    Yea I think it did too. We have to remember to that the lighting in the film was actually for the most part on the dark side and the odds of the runes showing up the gold is not likely unless it was an extreme close-up

    I'm certain that UC1380ASNB is the unlimited edition.

    in the movie poster we have an extreme close up, and the runes on the pommel are not golden. hav e look at this :

    http://gallery.fantasyvault.net/showphoto.php?photo=207&password=&sort=1&cat=500&page=1

    thats from the rotk movie poster (link above) and when you compare the triangle of the pommel (which is gold) with the runes, you clearly see that they are not golden ...

    i dont know if they just used an narsil for the picture or if the narsil prop simly doesnt have golden runes ???

    The actual movie prop does NOT have the gold color painted in the runes,
    Therefore the UNlimited edition "Anduril flame of the west" Will be the more accurate replica and standard version.
    The current Limited edition "Anduril sword of king elessar" has the gold runes just to add to it, And make it different and more special.

    Isn't Anduril supposed to shine with a light all the time, or something? Maybe the gold runes and jewel are supposed to symbolize that?

    Yes, I'm assuming they are still making and shipping them to places that have ordered them, But those places have Over Ordered and right now are waiting to receive them so they can ship them to people they have pre-sold them to.
    So getting one of the "Limited" one's right now may not be as easy as you think since this sword was long awaited and Most of them are spokin for.
    I have one, I ordered it Long ago and just received it last week upon hearing that they are Sold Out.
    Although I will order the "Unlimited" Version as well because that will be the regular/Standard movie version.
    It is silly that there would be 2 Versions of anduril, But think about it It makes more money, Release a Limited version that is numbered with a nice plaque and a signed certificate and some extra gold painted details (Although non accurate). And THEN release a regular accurate version.
    If I would have been aware that the later accurate version would be released I would have waited for it, I'm not mad because now I have the plaque (Which I like) And it doesnt hurt to have both versions, Although I feel they should have been released at the SAME time so we could choose, If you are the type of person that wants something numbered and limited that version is for you, However I am the type of person that is all about the accuracy, I could care less about an Investment, So I will like the Unlimited version better.

    Indeed, I couldn't agree more, although I wish the hole in the guard were amber enamel-filled instead of gold-filled.

    I feel the same way as you. It should have been accurate on both copies. However, I do like collectable things and things that are limited. From a movie that is probably the best movie in the history of the Earth, and only 5000 are made... i think it would be something worth holding onto... How many people would love to have something so limited and so collectable.

    Maybe I will have to wait until the un-limited one comes out. I have a better chance of getting it =)

    Are you saying that many of the high feed back merchants on <Please read forum rules...> are selling swords they'll not be able to deliver? <Please read forum rules...> They said that they will be delivered in mid or late January for shipment. Are you saying I should be wary? I'm a little paranoid now :p
