    That is the MSRP. Our price will be under $400 (maybe under $300, not sure).

    This is funny.These swords are made in my country, and will be cheaper in th USA.And if they are considered weapons, cannot be sold here...sad but true.

    But I'll think of something...Do you know Chris if Sting will be available for Europe?.

    Really...

    If it's $300 american, then It would be ~$415 Canadian after shipping.

    I might consider this after all, it IS extremely nice.

    the only problem being what will I do with my existing sting?

    300$ USA are 225 euros.Here a UC sword costs 300 euros (400,70 $ USA), so this Sting is a really sweeet item.

    But I've got the same problem...what I do with my Sting???

    If you order it sure. Also we've shipped to Spain quite a few times without issue.

    300-400 is better than $750 - But I still have a substantial collection of the "regular" UC items including LE Anduril. And damn that background in the case for sting is horrific! But I wouldn't rule out getting one museum piece. I'll have to see what else they make I suppose. It would have to be something different, something I couldn't get normally, or something really special I think.

    I owe a bunch of regular UC pieces (including LE Anduril), rings, and sideshow stuff and whatnots about LOTR, but the idea of having...let's say the Elven Warrior sword in Museum Collection would be awesome, and if Chris says that there's no problem shipping this kind of swords to Spain, things couldn't be better...

    For the price of this Sting it better glow!!!! And I don't mean some cheesy MR glow, the real deal - will test on my sister if she comes over to my house. The idea of having to start over collecting swords is not exciting.

    That's a ridiculously high RRP. If you went to a custom smith you'd expect a price around there (or substantially more) but even though they're proper "live" swords, many people won't pay that much for "a movie prop sword."

    I'm torn. I certainly don't have the money to buy them all, and maybe only one if I splash out. I guess we'll wait and see which swords they line up for prroduction next if Sting sells well, and then base my decisions on what they release, and what price you can buy the Museum swords for "on the street."

    $300-400 seems decent. I certainly won't be buying any, not because my wallet won't allow it (well, SOMETIMES it won't!) but because there are unfortunately more intiguing arms and armour pieces out there too me... Mainly custom stuff!

    Nice Specs, but anyone knows the weight of the sword and if it will be well balanced?

    Erk.
