    i went and got my limited Anduril from the post office yesterday. it's awesome. the runes are all centered and the sun rays are also centered. the overall quality is amazing.

    i couldn't even believe it that i was able to get my hands on one. i remember going to BBB's website on Dec 22 and seeing the notice that the limited ed. Andurils are all sold out. thats when i joined the TFF to see what up with them selling so fast. After doing my research i figured that my chances of getting one from BBB are going to be slim considering all the people that had PMd Swordman about getting one after the pre-orders were filled.

    So i decided to look somewhere else. i found a very good retailer with a good price, ($225US). i emailed someone at the company with my request on Dec 24 and then on the 27th my order was put through on the backorder list. When the swords arrived they shipped mine on Jan 7, it arrived at the post office in my city on Jan 16 i picked it up yesterday JAN 17th. WOW that was fast. It passed Customs without a problem.

    it's so beautiful, just how most of you that own one discribed it.

    my number is 3179 of 5000. :smurf:

    Hey good news! I just got mine the other day and it too was flawless. I was a bit worried after hearing about a few that were less than perfect. Congrats!

    I'm so afraid that my Anduril will be totally f..... up, but now that I see
    two person recieving flawless copies my blood pressure is beginning to
    go down. Maybe UC have taken a bit better time to check if any of the
    swords have had any flaws this time, I sure hopes so....

    I unfortunately found one thing wrong with mine. Its not huge, but enough to kind of bug you. There is a knick in the blade between the 4th star and the runes. Like I said its not huge, but I was kind of annoyed when i spotted it.

    I still love it though, I got #1,379 of 5,000. I ordered mine the same day as my friend. (The day after BBB got their first shipment) I didn't order mine from BBB, but a retailer near my house. Anyway my friend picked them up when they got in and opened one for himself. He got #225 of 5,000. That was kind of wierd and unlucky for me I thought. Oh well. I still got one and I love it.

    the best thing to do is to keep in constant contact with the retailer, thats what i did and it payed off. i've held my twice already and haven't taken off the plastic bags it comes in. good luck and hope y'all get yours!!!!!!!!

    Mine is near flawless. I found a very very very small nich in the blade, right before the 5th star. Its not noticable unless you get close to the blade under light and run your hand down the side of it then you'll feel it. But i still love it!

    mine isnt 100% flawless either..
    my "sun" is 5mm ( 1/4") to high...
    but hey that means i have 5mm longer blade than you all.. :)

    i cant understand how they can let so big flaws get trough control... its a limited edition after all.

    Flundval,
    there have been many posts on this and the 'Sun' or gold dot I believe you are referring to is MEANT to be 5mm off centre with the Sun Rays, it's just the way the replica turned out. Kit himself has made comment about this.
