museum replicas is also making them and the ones from the old films, and hoping they won't cost as much as the film swords company

So Museum Replicas are making the originals? Alongside Albion and Marto's versions?
They are usually affordable and functional. It should be interesting.

i looked on museum replicas face book page and some people think they will still be around 300 or 400 , I'm hoping not, ill pay like 200-250 for a functional one, but i thought i read on there also they will weight at around 8 pounds.
no mention of the new movie swords , oddly enough if they are weighted better ill pick them up, i do like the style of them , and think if they were made in real steal and such would look rather cool. museum rep got it good with the path finder sword so I'm hoping

You know I like the pathfinder sword much more than the new Conan movie sword. I didn't realize they made that. I wish I can go to their web site but I'm at work and weapon related sites are restricted.

I find it an ugly looking thing (the sword not it's wielder obviously).

it's got to be one of the worst weapons ever, compounded by the fact that howard always used real weapons in his stories...helped give them that visceral feel this movie was missing.

You can use that sword as a metaphor for the film.

I think it's a terrible looking sword, looks like the proverbial chocolate teapot, neither use nor ornament

like it or not it still requires less trimming down to make it a real functional sword, and as much as i love the old film swords, there no way they are ever functional when they weigh 7 or 8 pounds.
i see no reason a sword maker could not make them all scaled down to the right size and weight a weapon should be id rather have that then a 100% copy of a movie prop be that the new film or old one.
i have toyed with the idea of buying the cheap versions of the old movie swords and refitting them with real blades.

I bet you if that monstrosity that is the newest movie sword wasn't plastic it would weigh at least 12 pounds.

Could it be that the movies are copying their weapons from gaming minis with their ornately crude gigantic weapons?
"Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" - Conan, in "Shadows in Zamboula", by Robert E. Howard
"... you speak of Venarium familiarly. Perhaps you were there?"
"I was," grunted [Conan]. "I was one of the horde that swarmed over the hills. I hadn't yet seen fifteen snows, but already my name was repeated about the council fires." - "Beyond the Black River", by Robert E. Howard

It's almost like they saw the Conan sword for the Arnold movies and decided the new sword had to be bigger.

A more normal sized sword would have made Momoa's arms look bigger.

Huge weapons, and no sheath. The sword looked dull on camera. It's almost like it was a big club more than a sword.

would that they took their design inspiration from the same sources howard did- history. hence the call for the bible. i posted some gorgeous swords in that thread.
