    Both of these are in stock, We only have 3 helms left after filling preorders though.

    We also have Kit Rae's new Avaquar in stock.

    Is MC Sting a Limited Edition? If so, how many are being produced?

    I posted in the other guys forum what I thought of it and I was a little harsh on it but its because the silver on mine is soooo shiny, we are talking chrome. It makes the aging on top do very little to age it, the silver on Anduril looked right and the Shards of Narsil was aged beautifly but I think they did a more permanant better job on the spots so they wouldn't wear off since its functional but without a coating underneath to dull and darken the metal it is kinda pointless, although under low light its not as bad and looks a lot better. And its important to note I may just got someone who was lazy, that happens all the time with the paint jobs at Sideshow Weta. The box RULES and I could not be happier with it, the hilt is wonderful to not have that damn silk screen, wood handle is nice, the blade is wider on mine one inch above the hilt and its obvious but other than that its only slightly bigger. I didn't expect the blade to change hardly at all (like I don't expect Andurils hilt to change much other than maybe no gold inscription) and the blade is a lot alike, the only difference is the engraving on the blade is more intricate and matches the movie while the first Sting cut some corners on the details. The balance is good, more weight in the hilt but close enough. My mom likes it alot more if you want a different perspective. For me when I look at it all I see is Glamdring and what it promises it will look like, its my favorite sword and I was upset they didn't make an LE of it. I have been wanting a real Glamdring since I read the Hobbit and LOTR about 16 years ago and I can't wait to get a worthy one. I just wish I could get an MC Orcist to display them together. Whatever anyone says even if the MC collection isn't always perfect its still a very wonderful thing, because of all the great ones they will make in the future and its a lot better than the regular versions. I have a few pics I will see about putting some up, they were rushed.

    Here is a pic of the case and one of MC Sting in sheath. The sheath was a VERY tight fit, the blade is too thick for it and considering the sheath is not wood lined anyway so should never be used for very long I am not going to risk the blade again I will probably never use this sheath again. The leather on it sucked anyway.
